Dax Shepard certainly didn't give Kristen Bell a lavish Hollywood wedding. The "Parenthood" star talked about his recent nuptials during his visit to "Jimmy Kimmel Live." The couple wed on October 17 at the Beverly Hills County Clerk's office after six years together. You heard that right. At the county clerk's office!
They'd been engaged for three years -- having delayed their wedding until after the Supreme Court struck down the Defense of Marriage Act. Then, as Shepard proudly proclaimed, they had a ceremony that cost them $142 -- and that included gas.
"Friends of ours came to the courthouse, and it was just Kristen and I at this lonely courthouse, so they brought us this cake afterwards," he said. "‘The World’s Worst Wedding.’ How many people can say they threw ‘The World’s Worst Wedding?’”
Still, both he and Bell seem to be quite happy in their new marriage. She told People magazine, "I'm still on a high ... We actually did it. I can officially call him my husband, which is pretty awesome. Other than that, it feels exactly the same.”
I don't think weddings have to be lavish affairs, but that's just my opinion. We spent maybe less than 5K on our wedding almost 7 years ago, and sometimes I think that was too much. That included our wedding bands, my engagement ring, wedding dresses, and we also paid for some of the dresses for our wedding party. I've seen my friends drop $25K on a wedding, and that was great for them, but I could see paying off a car or a school loan as a better investment.
I also wanted to add this for the Veronica Mars Movie fans in response to last night's footage on the Logan/Piz debate...I knew there was NO WAY she'd be with Piz for almost a decade, so I'm happy to see that Rob has clarified this fact. :)
