We all love a celebrity weddings, even if you’re not the kind of person who obsesses over your own big day — making Pinterest boards of potential weddings and rings and table plans — they are kind of fascinating. The dress, the guests, the venue; it’s always so magnificently extravagant.

Mila’s got an Etsy wedding ring? There were cigarettes in bowls at Mary-Kate’s party?

It was kind of a big deal.
