It looks like the cat’s out of the bag for RGIII and his July 6 wedding plans with fiancee Rebecca Liddicoat.
“You would never know, based on his press conferences and everything he does in the media, but he still has that shyness to him and that quietness to him,” she explained. “He loves being at home, quiet and to himself. That hasn’t changed.”
Just like his own mother mentioned, the nation did not know it. Unlike most celebrity couples, Griffin and Liddicoat have managed to keep their wedding date a secret until now, only two months or so before the bells are set to ring.
The wedding, we’re sure, is going to be ornate. As the No. 2-overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft and the darling of the DC sports scene, RGIII is not exactly hurting for cash.
His mother easily attributed the secrecy surrounding the wedding on her son’s modesty, but can the wedding registry be chalked up to the same thing? After all, we can assume Redskins owner Daniel Snyder has scored himself an invite, and the guy could fly in on a diamond-studded helicopter if he were so inclined. There will be quite a few NFL stars there as well, we’re sure, and we’re also pretty sure that none of those guys hit up Bed, Bath and Beyond on the regular.

So what gives? First of all, there has been no confirmation yet as to whether or not this is even a legit registry, a fact that the Post is quick to point out themselves.
However, if it is, let’s have a little fun. Do you think Mr. Snyder is planning on picking up the jerky maker?
What about the Marquis by Waterford Vintage 10-Ounce Martini (Set of 2) currently listed for $28.99? That sounds a lot like something we’d give to a really cool cousin, not RGIII.
But wait, there’s more. The couple has requested 12 linen jubilee napkins that will never be used, as well as a slew of assorted dish clothes, potholders, kitchen towels and oven mitts.
Definitely practical, but really? Potholders?
We’re talking about a former Heisman Trophy winner here, ladies and gents.
We’re absolutely not trying to hate on RGIII and his soon-to-be beautiful bride. All we’re trying to say is that if you were expecting some blinged-out, hyper-baller event, you might wind up a little disappointed.
RGIII just stays humble, always.
