The Biggest Celebrity Weddings of the Past Five Years, Part II

biggest celebrity weddingsIt’s been about a month since I wrote about the biggest celebrity weddings of the past five years, but now I’m finally able to add some more grand weddings to this list. Let’s discuss three more celebrity weddings that people went crazy over.

1. Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds 

The world didn’t even know these two crazy kids were engaged when we heard about their wedding! This surprise wedding took place in September of 2012 in Charleston, South Carolina. The event was insanely private-- only 35 of the couple’s closest friends and family were in attendance. In the past year, we’ve only been privileged to see one glimpse of the couple on their wedding day. In fact, while you can find only one photo of them, you can find many different photos of the scrumptious food they served at their reception. Blake reportedly wore a couture Marchesa ball gown while her hubby wore a custom Burberry suit. This marriage was the second for Ryan (who was previously married to Scarlett Johansson) and the first for Blake. 

2. Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries 

Even though it ended badly, this wedding, which took place in 2011, was one of the most talked about events in television history. A two-part special showing of Kim’s show Keeping Up with the Kardashians was dedicated to showing the nuptials. Kim wore three different Vera Wang wedding dresses: one for the ceremony (where they exchanged matching wedding bands), one for her first dance, and one for the rest of the reception. People Magazine reportedly paid around $1.5 million for exclusive rights  to run the first photos from the wedding. The wedding reportedly cost around $20 million total (although Kim and Kris received a lot of things free for promotional purposes). You can see a breakdown of costs as well as a comparison between the costs of the British Royal Wedding (one of my other biggest celebrity weddings!) and Kim’s wedding. Of course, we all know how this union ended: 72 days after the ceremony, Kim filed for divorce.

3. Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel 

Justin and Jessica were married last October in Italy after dating on and off for five years. When Jessica walked down the aisle in her custom pink Giambattista Valli Haute Couture gown, Justin serenaded her with a song he wrote specifically for her and her walk down the aisle. Jessica opened up to Elle Magazine about why she chose a pink dress, and People Magazine was once again the winner of exclusive photo rights. Guests in attendance included Jimmy Fallon, Andy Samberg, Timbaland, and Beverley Mitchell. The couple honeymooned in Tanzania and shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon.
