Edwards to marry before weekend birthday
BATON ROUGE - Edwin Edwards and his fiance, Trina Scott, have a full week ahead of them.
The former governor and his bride-to-be will get married this Friday, before Edwards celebrates his 84th birthday in New Orleans Saturday.
Scott, 32, confirmed on her Facebook page the nuptials were planned for July 29. The wedding is reportedly going to be a small, intimate ceremony with less than a dozen guests. She will be Edwards' third wife.
Edwards is scheduled to celebrate his birthday Saturday night with a party and "roast" at the Hotel Monteleone in New Orleans. The event is invitation-only, but Edwards will hold a press conference for members of the media beforehand.
