The wedding between Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard was a long time coming, but that doesn’t mean the duo spent their three-year engagement planning a lavish event. In fact, Dax revealed to Jimmy Kimmel on Monday that their spur-of-the-moment, courthouse wedding cost only $142!
The Parenthood star admitted that the talk show host’s big, summer wedding to Molly McNearney actually played a hand in his decision to keep it simple. “I’m a frugal person,” he explained. “Your wedding, when I was there, there were helicopters overhead! It felt like an episode of M*A*S*H!”
“I made a mental note when I watched that,” he continued. “I thought, ‘I’m going to do it a different way.’ So we went to the Beverly Hills courthouse, and all in, with fuel to get there, $142 out the door.”
However, the actor also added that he doesn’t have a wedding ring…yet…so there’s still some loose ends to tie up for the newlyweds..
