Gene Simmons

The Smart Ass

Wedding Announcement

9/1/2011 5:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Gene Simmons is finally revealing what Shannon Tweed told him when he asked for her hand in marriage ... and SHOCKER ... she didn't say no.

Now, the couple is planning the wedding -- and they've already sent out invitations -- complete with a sarcastic wedding announcement from their kids.

The announcement says, "After 28 years of loose strings, our parents have finally decided to tie the knot."

"Our mother will share our horrendous hyphenate of a last name and our father's life ... well, it doesn't change that much."

It continues on a heartfelt note -- saying, "But we will be united as a family in spirit and in title forever."

The wedding is set for October 1 at the super-fancy Beverly Hills Hotel. Check out the invitation for the dress code ... funny stuff.

Waiting for the first progressive Obama-voting whippersnapper to bemoan all the money the hard-working Simmons will spend on this wedding, and demanding that Obama's federal government step in and redistribute the wealth to a favorite entitlement charity, leading directly into said unemployed whippersnapper's pocket.

Any man who lets his wife spend 20 grand on a handbag is a good man indeed. I love his son, he is so cute and tall and funny. Gene is funny. He's a real trip.

Not a fan of KISS and was never a fan of Gene's until his show came out. I caught one episode and was hooked. This family is pretty cool...he's pretty laid back...and his son!! LOVE his son!! Absolutely hilarious and a cutie to boot!

Lots of love in this family. Humor and love. Not perfect but a really solid family. Glad to see the wedding happening. Good choice!

As to their upcoming marriage, I am suprised because Gene is afraid of marriage, but something must have happened to the point where he is afraid that Shannon is going to leave him to make him come to propose. I haven'*****ched the show in awhile, but the last time I looked Shannon was pretty upset with him over a email message from some girl. Having relationship with a celebrity is difficult, but a rockstar is even worse because girls are always throwing themselves on the bands or singer on the road and in public so that Shannon put up with it for years is amazing. But they are a strong couple. He can be himself with her and she grounds him and they love each other and that is all that really counts. Shannon has wanted to marry for years and now Gene has finally faced his fear and asked her and I am seriously happy for both of them. As to the comments about Gene's hair, if you have been watching his show, his hair has a mind of it's own and not much can be done to it except to cut it all off and wear it short which Gene is definitely not going to do.

His hair and singing talent are as real as her breasts and acting talent. Who falls for these fakers? Suckers, obviously. Sad sucks.

Producer: Ratings for Family Jewels are going in the crapper.
Simmons: Shannon and I could get married.
Producer: Great, we'll build up to in in the spring, tease about it in the summer, and have an October wedding right before the premiere.
Simmons: And how much will advertising go for?
