When Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel tied the knot in Italy, they made sure to pull out all the stops.
"Guests snacked on local specialities like fava beans, artisan bread, lobster in turnip tops, mini caprese salads and cheeses, then enjoyed a four-course meal including steak and sea bass. Dessert was Italian dessert affogato (a scoop of ice cream topped with a shot of espresso)," according to The Huffington Post.
Reese Witherspoon's wedding was reminiscent of an ancient Greek wedding amongst royalty, with a touch of Americana.

Some celebrities keep it a little more simple, like vegan's Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi.

However, Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton went in quite the opposite direction and even served food they killed themselves!

Some celebrities like Alex Baldwin and Hilaria Thomas like to keep it healthy. That may also have to do with Thomas being a yoga instructor.
