The NBA lockout is messing with another wedding.

Last time it was Chris Bosh, but the league gave approval for some Miami Heat coaches and officials to attend his wedding.

Now Stephen Curry, who is getting married this month in Charlotte, is running into the same thing, according to Marc Spears at Yahoo. He’ll have a number of players there, but…

He’s still waiting to see if Warriors’ front office officials and Bobcats assistant coach Stephen Silas, a former Golden State assistant, can get cleared by the NBA to go. Miami Heat officials were recently given permission to attend Chris Bosh’s(notes) wedding.

“They all sent their regards and petitioned the league to come to the wedding, so they’re not breaking any rules,” Curry said. “As of right now, they can’t come. I don’t know how the process is going. If they show up, they show up. If not, I understand why.”

You’d hope the league would approve this. I don’t know Curry’s fiancé, but you can bet she is not going to allow Curry to sit down with coaches for a lengthy discussion of defensive strategy on her wedding day.
