You could say Gina Glocksen had a marriage made in American Idol. First, her Season 6 castmate Phil Stacey helped her fiancé, teacher Joe Ruzicka, 32, with the onstage proposal during the '07 Idol tour. Then, at the New Year's Eve nuptials in suburban Chicago, Jordin Sparks sang the Beatles' "I Wanna Hold Your Hand" for the couple's first dance and served as bridesmaid with Haley Scarnato.

"It was so perfect," says Glocksen, 24. At the reception the 300 guests celebrated with—yes—karaoke (Glocksen and Sparks dueted on "Livin' on a Prayer") and dancing until 1:30 a.m. And at brunch the next day, the bride wore her wedding gown. "It was a beautiful dress," says Glocksen. "I had to wear it one more time!"
