Tom Cruise & Katie Holmes
TomKat’s wedding in Bracciano, Italy, was set on Cruise control: the groom managed every detail. Giorgio Armani dressed the wedding party (bride and baby wore matching frocks) and provided swag bags for guests. Cruise serenaded Holmes with the oddly chosen "You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’," and the head of the Church of Scientology went along on their Maldives honeymoon.
Elizabeth Hurley & Arun Nayar
After a lavish wedding in England, the entire party — with
Hello! photographers in tow — jetted to India for a week of cricket, dancing and wardrobe changes. Wearing a jewel-encrusted pink sari by Versace, the princess bride was carried on a velvet gondola throne. But the fairy tale was short-lived: after the couple’s now-controversial Hindu ceremony, Hurley’s father-in-law disowned them.
Nicole Kidman & Keith Urban
When these Nashville-based lovebirds wed down under, a ray of light shone on them. A celestial sign? No, just a spotlight trained on the bride by
Tori Spelling & Dean McDermott
This barefoot, bare-bones private beach ceremony in Fiji was far more low-key than the bride’s first million-dollar wedding. The couple was eager to avoid the spotlight after the groom’s Canadian ex-wife, Mary Jo Eustace, publicized his deadbeat ways, so it was just the two of them — plus a photographer snapping shots to sell to People. The cash came in handy during the now-resolved mother-daughter tiff that threatened Spelling’s inheritance.
