12 Most Unique Celebrity Weddings
Weddings are always full of surprises and each one is meant to celebrate the unique love between two people, and when it comes to celebrity weddings especially no expense is spared. Many weddings are no longer about wearing a big gown to the chapel and saying “I Do” and over the years the stars have shared some details from their big day that were unique, nontraditional, unconventional and sometimes just strange. Here are 12 of the most unique celebrity weddings over the years:
12. Britney Spears and Kevin Federline
Britney Spears’ marriage to Kevin Federline was probably the most talked about celebrity wedding in the mid-2000s and it was far from what was expected. The pop star and her backup dancer wed on September 22, 2004 at a private home in Los Angeles, and the steps they took to keep it a secret were very interesting. Instead of telling their friends and family they were attending a wedding, their guests actually thought they were attending Spears and Federline’s engagement party and when they arrived were handed cards reading, “Surprise! It is with much love that we welcome you to our wedding ceremony tonight.” For those who were worried what to wear, Spears provided her bridesmaids with personalized Juicy Couture sweatsuits that read “The Maids” on them while Federline also gave his groomsmen personalized Juicy Couture sweatsuits that read “Pimps” on them. While secret weddings are actually quite common in Hollywood, having your wedding party decked out in personalized track suits certainly is not. Despite adding their unique flair to their wedding, the marriage didn’t last and the pair divorced in 2007.
11. Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick
Before she became one of TV’s most memorable style icons as Carrie Bradshaw on Sex and the City, Sarah Jessica Parker married actor Matthew Broderick in a wedding that was far from the expected. The pair tied the knot on May 19, 1997 in a historic synagogue in Manhattan and like many other celebrities kept the whole thing as secretive as they could. Although many aspects were traditional when it came to their wedding, what surprised everyone was Parker’s far from conventional wedding dress. The actress donned an entirely black Morgane Le Fay, explaining, “I just was too embarrassed to spend any time looking for a wedding dress. There was a store that I liked that I knew, and I just went and got whatever they had hanging.” Later, the actress admitted she regrets her choice of dress, but certainly not of her husband because they have been going strong for over 20 years!
