Britney Spears and Kevin Federline
Britney Spears and Kevin Federline had a giant, lavish wedding planned for October 16, 2004. Invitations had been sent, flowers had been ordered… but the couple decided to scrap the humungous ceremony at the very last minute and go for a surprise wedding. The pair invited 27 guests, mostly friends and family, over for an engagement party — with a surprise ceremony at the end! "I just thought it would be too much if we had done it when we were supposed to," Spears told People magazine. "It became this huge thing and I was like, 'What are we waiting for? We know this is the real thing, why not just do it now?' That's why I wanted to sneak and do it our little way." The couple split two years later. —XFINITY Entertainment Staff (Photo by Matthew Simmons/Getty Images for Rolling Stone)
