Outrageous Celebrity Weddings

Britney Spears and Kevin Federline: September 18, 2004
It was a year of weddings for Spears. First, she married Alexander, a friend from her hometown, at The Little White Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas. After a night of partying at Ghostbar at the Palms, they rode to the chapel and were escorted down the aisle (she wore torn jeans and a baseball cap) by the hotel’s limo driver. Her record label, Jive, quickly issued a statement that the couple, “took a joke too far by getting married.” The partnership was annulled 12 hours later.
Spears turned around in September of the same year and married Kevin Federline in a surprise ceremony. Guests were treated to a cash bar, chicken wings, ribs, and mini cheeseburgers, and given sweat suits embroidered with “pimps” for the guys and “maids” for the girls. Spears filed for divorce in 2006.
