We love the sound of “Weddings” no matter who is getting hitched. And when it comes to Hollywood Weddings, we get all excited and eagerly wondering which magazine is going to be the first to give us a scoop of the wedding day or which online portal will allow us to see pictures of what the bride wore, how the groom looked and how much they splurged on the big day.
Hollywood witnessed tons of engagement announcements and weddings in 2012. Many celebrities took us by surprise with their engagement, especially Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Now we can finally put our hopes and rumors to rest about Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt getting back, for she too is planning for her Big Day with fiancé Justin Theroux. But, this is Hollywood and who knows where the roads might lead.
As 2012 is heading to a closure, everyone has gotten down to talking about which celebrity wedding in 2012 was the biggest bash of this year. While many believe that Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel stole the show with their wedding in 2012, we urge you to give it more thought because besides these two lovebirds, many other Hollywood couples got hitched in 2012.
We thought instead of us passing a judgment, it would be best to let you decide for yourself and vote for the Biggest Hollywood Wedding of 2012, the most fashionable, the most expensive and the one you wish you attended.
So let us take you on a journey to witness the most fashionable celebrity weddings of the year. And as we countdown to the biggest Hollywood weddings of 2012, we hope your mind draws closer to a decision on whose bash was the BIGGEST.
1. Anne Hathway and Adam Shulman
Anne Hathway married her lover and fellow actor, Adam Shulman in a private wedding ceremony along the coast of California in September. This Hollywood wedding ceremony was probably the most picturesque as the couple exchanged their wedding vows on a cliff against a backdrop of the blue ocean and a fiery sunset.
Anne and Adam’s Wedding celebrations lasted a whole weekend with a 150 guests; the wedding décor and theme was based on “nature.” The bride wore a custom made gown by Valentino. She didn’t wear any jewelry, her only accessory was a 1920s styled white headband that was attached to her veil over her cropped pixie hair cut.
2. Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds
Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds’ wedding ceremony, which was held in September, was the most secretive Hollywood Wedding of 2012. The lovebirds had a lavish evening wedding ceremony outside Charleston attended by friends, family and the who’s who of Hollywood.
Blake Lively and her bridesmaids were dressed in custom made gowns by Marchesa. Blake’s gown was a silk hand draped tulle bodice, which was adorned with rose gold embroidery and crystals. The bride graced her feet in Christian Louboutins, which were especially created for her. Her bridesmaids donned blush silk chiffon gowns with crystal embroidery while the groom and his groomsmen wore custom made Burberry suits with leather suspenders.
3. Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millepied
Natalie Portman finally married her fiancé of two years, Benjamin Millepied in August this year. The wedding ceremony was a thorough Jewish celebration in a private home under the moonlight, along the Big Sur coast. The ceremony took place under a rustic Jewish chuppah designed out of twigs, the couple was wrapped in a Jewish prayer shawl and the ceremony ended with shouts of, “Mazel Tov” to the sound of smashing glass, in keeping with Jewish traditions.
Natalie wore a tea length A-line dress by Rodarte; the sheer georgette over her chest and arms added to the grace of the dress. Natalie wore nude pumps and a floral crown attached to her veil. Benjamin wore a midnight blue tuxedo. The ceremony was attended by over 100 guests including the 14 month old son of the couple. And the menu was strictly vegetarian owing to Natalie’s vegan diet.
This was a one of a kind Hollywood wedding with unique and fresh ideas incorporated into the ceremony and celebration. French macaroons were served instead of going traditional with a wedding cake. The guests received wildflower seed packets as wedding favors with “Merci” inscribed on the packet.
4. Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves
The King of romantic comedies finally tied the knot with his long time partner Camila Alves with whom he fathers two children Levi, 4 and Vida, 2. The two got married in the backyard of their Austin home at sunset in a strictly Catholic wedding ceremony.
The bride wore a beaded delicate lace wedding gown, which was custom made for her by Brazilian dress designer Ducarmo Castelo Brancos and she paired it with white Stuart Weitzman heels. Matthew kept his raw charm alive with a three-piece black Dolce & Gabbana tuxedo.
The three day wedding celebration was indeed quite a lavish affair with over 120 guests, family, friends and colleagues. And it was quite a laid back party with guest lounging on hammocks, resting in tents, a never ending service of chilled beer, lawn games and personalized cookies.
5. Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel
From an exotic location, to designer labels, the much hyped about Hollywood Wedding of Mr. and Mrs. J was celebrated in a swanky resort Borgo Egnazia in southern Italy in October 2012.
The highlight of this Hollywood wedding was Justin serenading his wife with an original piece that he wrote for her as she walked down the aisle. Even if he hadn’t prepared to do this, he would certainly start singing extempore watching this vision in petal pink, dressed in a Giambattista Valli Haute Couture gown. Justin Timberlake wore a Tom Ford tuxedo, which he helped design.
The wedding celebrations lasted a week and the pair played the perfect host to 100 guests, including close friends, co-stars and family. The couple got married amidst a lot of festivities and a raging fanfare of music, drinks, food, fireworks and love.
So here we go with the most fashionable Hollywood Weddings of 2012. We hope your votes for the best ones are in because, 2013 is on the brink, bringing its own share of engagements and weddings (and of course, divorces).
