Everyone wants to make their wedding day special, but what can you that hasn’t been done before? While it’s true that doing something unique isn’t always possible, you can be in good company by emulating your favorite celebrities. Read on to find out how these famous couples chose to celebrate the union of their love.
Go Simple: While you might think that a celebrity wedding has to be a grand and, let’s face it, expensive affair, not every famous couple will choose to go this route. Take, for instance, Ellen DeGeneres and Portia DeRossi. The two chose to wed in the comfort of their own home which was tastefully decorated and filled with their closest friends and relations.
Masquerade Ball: A glamorous, masked theme can work perfectly at any wedding. Just ask Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul who incorporated a 1920’s masquerade theme in his wedding reception after marrying long time girlfriend Lauren Parsekian. The two weren’t alone as Salma Hayek and Francois Henri Pinault also made their rehearsal dinner into a masquerade ball.
Festival Theme: A festival theme is perfect for any couple who likes the outdoors, good vibes and good music. This was the go-to for Guy Ritchie when he married the love of his life, Jacqui Ainsley. The bride wore a floral headband and tents were erected to provide guests with the ultimate glamping experience. A versatile wedding band can definitely take this theme to the next level.
Venetian Themed: A Venetian theme can be easily incorporated into any wedding, but if you really want to do it right, take a tip from Amal Alamuddin and George Clooney. The two provided boats to take their wedding party through a Venice canal to the hotel where they would be married. Then they cruised off into the sunset on their Just Married wedding boat aptly named, Amore.
Elope: Weddings are usually grand affairs that are planned for months in advance. But there is something about eloping that is so romantic and spontaneous that it can make the perfect beginning to any marriage. Mariah Carey and Nick Canon eloped in style when the two took off to a private island to say their ‘I do’s.
Do It Up: Those with deep or digital wallets will spare no expense when it comes to their weddings. David Beckham and Posh Spice saw to it that their wedding was the affair of the century tying the knot at Dublin’s Luttrellstown Castle. Their guest list included over 500 people each of which was provided with an extravagant meal, a fireworks display and an 18 piece orchestra.
Not all of us are on the A list, but we can be stars on our wedding day. What will you be doing to emulate your celeb favorites when you say I do?
