Celebrity Weddings – Do They Impact Your Wedding?


We’ve all seen the headlines, “Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt marry”.  All the details of their special day was kept under wraps until after their intimate celebration.  Do we take any ideas away from celebrity weddings?  The answer would be yes.

People Magazine was one of the first magazines to report that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt recently married at their home at the Chateau Miraval in Correns, France.  They had the typical ring bearers and flower girls, being their beautiful children and they made if very personal for them.  Maddox and Pax walked their mom down the aisle to their dad. Even with six children, the Pitt family made their wedding day as normal as you or I would.  We have our family in attendance and are surrounded by the people we love.

Angelina had a one of kind dress, just like every bride seeks to achieve.  She had a dress made just for her by Versace.  While a typical bride won’t have a dress made by Versace, we are looking for that special dress.  One that speaks to you and makes you feel stunningly gorgeous.  That’s what the dress is about.  Whether you customize your wedding gown like Angelina did with the hand prints of her children or not is a personal decision.  Remember what works for one bride, even Angelina, may not work for you.  So if you find something special you want on your wedding gown, in your reception venue or even in your bouquet, don’t be afraid to make it personal.  This is your big day.  It’s about you and personal touches are so very important.  It’s the little details that make it such a fabulous day special for you, your family and friends.

So take inspirational ideas from the many celebrities who marry.  Their weddings may be over the top, but there are ways to bring your ideas into your wedding.  Remember your wedding day is about you and your betroth, not celebrities.  But it sure is fun to see what the celebrities do for their big days.

Happy Planning!
