Don't Hold Your Breath For an Invite to Gwyneth Paltrow and Brad Falchuk's Wedding — Plus, Other Celeb Couples Who Opted for Tiny Ceremonies

Quality, not quantity.  

When Gwyneth Paltrow ties the knot with Brad Falchuk, it will mark the Goop mogul's second marriage — but this will be her first wedding. You see, when Paltrow married Chris Martin back in 2003, the two eloped. And though Paltrow and Falchuk will have a more traditional wedding, don't expect a reception with 250 A-List guests doing the Chicken Dance. 

According to a source who spoke to Us Weekly, the couple plans to have a "small and personal" wedding in the Hamptons in September, with just 15 to 20 guests. And, if that's true, the pair wouldn't be the only famous couple who skipped a giant affair for something far more intimate. Keep reading to see which other celebrity lovebirds kept their "I Do's" relatively private. 

Keira Knightley and James Righton

When the English actress married her rocker hubby in 2013, she did it in the most boho possible way. Knightley said "I Do" at a town hall in the South of France in front of just 11 guests.  And — get this — the bride wore actual daisies in her hair. After the ceremony, the newlyweds had a farmhouse reception with a slightly larger crowd. But the 50-guest affair hardly sounds like it was a giant rager. 

Jay-Z and Beyonce

What's that? You didn't get invited to Queen Bey's big day? Not to worry — you certainly weren't alone in that. When the music makers got married in 2008, they invited only 40 guests to the hush-hush ceremony. Fun fact: Chris Martin was one of the lucky ones to make the cut. 

Ellen Degeneres and Portia De Rossi


When TV's reigning talk-show queen married the Arrested Development actress in 2008, only 19 guests were there to witness the couple's custom Zac Posen ensembles. The two exchanged vows in front of their closest friends and family members, then sat down with to a candlelit dinner with their nearest and dearest. 

Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds

When the trolling pros got hitched, they did so at a Charleston ceremony with only 35 guests in attendance. And those guests must have had a fierce sugar buzz: the homespun wedding served up blueberry cheesecakes, lemon tarts, and a whole spread of candy.
