There is something special about celebrity weddings. They are extravagant. Each element of these weddings is unforgettable. Some celebrity weddings are nothing short of a fairy tale. Though many celebs have started to opt for smaller, intimate weddings lately, they are grandeur in their own way.

While some celebrities opted for a hush-hush wedding away from the media glare in a scenic setting like Lake Como, Italy, others took the big fat Indian wedding route and didn't keep it a secret for their fans.

Interestingly, some celebrities in the past got married and engaged on national television. While these marriages became the talk of the town and put these couples in limelight, not many of them worked in real life. Let's quickly take you through the list.
