But one woman in Australia wants something truly unique from her favorite singer, Jon Bon Jovi: She wants him to walk her down the aisle at her wedding next month. The bride, Branka Delic, is due to marry her boyfriend Gonzalo "Gonzo" Cladera on October 12 in the same Las Vegas wedding chapel where Jon married his wife, Dorothea. It just so happens that Bon Jovi is playing with his band in Las Vegas that same night. The rockers will take the stage at 8 p.m., but Delic's wedding is at 2 p.m., so Branka figures that Jon could make it if he really wanted to. In addition to tweeting the singer with her request, and setting up a Facebook page, Branka has created a website called BonJoviWalkMeDowntheAisle.com to plead her case.
