Weddings are usually elaborate affairs where invites are sent well in advance, the bride and the groom reveal the designer they're wearing to the world at large, venues and themes are discussed on social networking sites. There are some, however, who choose to skip all this and say 'I do' before we can bat an eyelid.
Playboy founder Hugh Hefner, 86, wed his girlfriend Crystal Harris, 26, at the Playboy Mansion in Los Angeles' Beverly Hills on New Year's Eve.
The couple were originally meant to marry in June 2011, but the model-turned-lingerie store owner got cold feet and called off the wedding. They reconciled in May 2012. This is Hefner's third marriage.
