7 Celebrities With Non-Traditional Wedding Dresses

They may be rich and famous, but not every celebrity wedding has been an extravagant, luxury affair. 

Kristen Bell recently unveiled the photos of her wedding to Dax Shepard, and - to the surprise of many - the ceremony and the dress were rather simple.

In fact, the entire wedding reportedly cost only US $142 (AU $190).

However, Kristen and Dax aren't the first celebs to take a non-traditional route on their wedding day.

Take a look through some of Hollywood's most gorgeous weddings - minus the white gown.

1. Kristen Bell

Kristen and Dax were married in a court house, with Kristen rocking a basic black top and pants. Dax, on the other hand, went all out in a black and white tuxedo. 

Despite the small ceremony, Kristen describes her wedding as "still one of the best days of my life."

2. Keira Knightley

Keira and her rockstar beau, James Righton, donned their wayfarers after ducking into a town hall in France for their intimate nuptials. Keira, however, was prepared for the big day with a stunning, blush Chanel dress and cropped jacket. 

3. Solange Knowles

This has to be one of the most stylish weddings of the modern era. You may remember the iconic image of the Knowles family - including Solange's sister, Beyonce - lined up in their finest to celebrate her big day.

Solange wore a sleek, minimal gown and cape to her wedding ceremony, but rocked a cream playsuit to the reception, after which she rode off with her new husband on vintage bikes.
