Celebrity weddings are synonymous with OK! Magazine photoshoots, A-list guest ensembles and bridal frocks
whose secondhand value could cancel out third world debt. But Hollywood actress Kristen Bell has rocked Hollywood with the revelation - three years after her wedding to husband and comedy star Dax Shepard (pictured) - that the event cost the grand total of $142 - and there wasn't so much as a sequin in sight.
In an interview with CBS (see below), the Bad Moms and Frozen star revealed that she and Shepard married in 2013 after a three-year engagement, in a "tiny room' in a Beverly Hills registry office and that she didn't even bother with a special gown for the occasion, opting instead for a simple black T-shirt and trousers, and fuss-free hair.
The actress tears up when talking about her pride in her husband's parenting skills, which she says have been shaped by his past struggles with drugs: “He’s a
wonderful father,” she says. “He knows the value of things. He was an addict for
many, many years and he pulled himself out of it and he’s been sober for 11, 12
years now. And he knows how many times he’s messed up and how many times he’s
been really close to losing everything.”
Shepard previously revealed that they threw the "world's worst wedding", and that the small outlay even included the cost of petrol for travelling to the event. Friends who turned up to wish the couple well even had to bring their own cake!
Take that, Kim Kardashian!
