What’s the most unique thing you’ve ever seen at a wedding? An over-the-top cake? Or maybe an adorable pet for a flower girl? While they do sound impressive, they don’t even compare to the surprising facts we learned about these celebrity weddings!
For example, did you know that Sarah Jessica Parker wore a black wedding gown on her special day? You might think that she did it to make a fashion statement, but believe it or not, she only chose that dress to avoid attracting too much attention!
“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. . . I was too embarrassed to wear white, and both Matthew and I were reluctant to have people pay so much attention to us,” she explained.
Watch the video below to see how this bride’s mom came to her daughter’s rescue before her wedding day!
“I would do it differently. I’d wear a beautiful, proper wedding dress, like I should have worn that day,” she said.
Though the star still feels some regret, we can’t help but applaud her for stepping out of the norm! And the same can be said for the rest of these stars, who went above and beyond to make their ceremonies unique.
