When you think about celebrity weddings, what often come to mind are big, expensive and elaborate affairs, such as Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s wedding, which cost $2.8 million, or George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin’s $4.6 million celebration. However, some celebrities prefer to have a more modest wedding that only involves their nearest and dearest. While these weddings may lack the glitz and glam of a typical Hollywood-style nuptial, they still make an impact on pop culture due to their unconventional yet meaningful nature. If you need some inspiration for a beautifully simple wedding, here are the best low-key and unconventional celebrity weddings of all time.
Zoey Saldana and Marco Perego
MCU star Zoey Saldana and Marco Perego have always been praised for their modern and inclusive views when it comes to parenting, and the two, who have been married for eight years, are currently raising their three sons in a gender-neutral environment. Their 2013 nuptials also flipped the script on weddings: in a private ceremony in London, in front of close family and friends, Perego took the actress’ last name, and he’s now known as Marco Perego-Saldana. This bold move made an impact as it signified their commitment to be equals in their marriage, and it sparked a lot of debate online. The couple released a joint statement, saying that men will not “cease to exist” by taking their spouse’s last name, and that any man who does the same will be “remembered as a man who stood by change.” Indeed, as traditions evolve, many more couples are choosing alternative ways of signifying commitment through the name they choose to enter married life with.
Kristen Bell and Dax Shepherd
The “The Good Place” star and Dax Shepherd had probably one of the most simple and inexpensive weddings of all time compared to Hollywood standards. Instead of a big celebration, the couple decided to get married at a Beverly Hills courthouse, and Bell wore a black top with jeans, while Shepherd donned a tuxedo and paired it with sneakers. It was reported that the whole celebration, including the gas to and from the courthouse, cost less than $150.
Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas
Back in 2019, Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas tied the knot at a Las Vegas chapel after attending the Billboard Music Awards. Surrounded by family and celebrity friends such as Diplo and Maisie Williams, the two were wed by an Elvis impersonator, and exchanged candy ring pops at the altar. Footage of the wedding was shared by celebrities on social media, and it was revealed that Diplo served as the DJ, while musical duo Dan + Shay played their song “Speechless” as the “Game of Thrones” star walked down the aisle.
A simple and intimate wedding can be memorable, as proven by these celebrity weddings. Take a cue from these celebrations to have a meaningful wedding without breaking the bank.
