Celebrity weddings often involve massive amounts of flowers, hundreds of guests, and unbelievable designer gowns. But once in a blue moon, there's a celeb couple that really isn't into all of the pomp and frills that come with a public wedding. It's refreshing, honestly, to see celebrity couples that really only care about marrying each other in front of thousands of people, and don't mind keeping the ceremony low-key. Some couples have even gone so far as to keep the wedding and marriage a secret for months after it took place.

In a world where barely anything is private anymore, it's nice to have the special day be just that ... special. (We totally get it.) We can only imagine the number of celebrity couples that want their wedding day to be the one day that they don't have to deal with paparazzi or media gossip. Certain celeb couples have had a lot of rumors and speculation surrounding their relationships, and a lot of times, it's the pair themselves fueling the gossip. 

Gotta keep them guessing, right?

It's hard to imagine that celebrity couples like this exist, because we're so inclined to believe that they all love the spotlight. But, TBH, it's surprising at how many A-list celebs kept their wedding under wraps. Here are 20 celebrity couples whose weddings were so low-key, that everyone barely knew they got married.

After all, it's all about the love, people!

    Justin and Hailey's relationship has been a whirlwind for sure. The two announced their engagement in July 2018, and reports of their courthouse marriage on September 13 quickly stirred up. However, Hailey tweeted shortly after saying that she wasn't married yet ... but then she deleted the tweet. Her uncle, actor Alec Baldwin, recently confirmed Justin and Hailey's marriage, so we guess there's nothing left to say except congrats!
