Just because a wedding is categorically a public affair doesn't mean you can't keep it on the hush-hush if that's more your style. Take it from Mike Myers - true to his role as the International Man of Mystery, the actor secretly married longtime girlfriend Kelly Tisdale five months ago, and the world is only just now finding out.
According to the New York Post, Myers and Tisdale wed in a beautiful New York City ceremony, away from the prying eyes of the paparazzi.
This may baffle some yet inspire others. If you're of the latter variety, keep in mind that a top-secret shindig might make things a little more fun. Here's a few ways you might be able to pull it off:
The most crucial component to a clandestine operation is making sure that those in the know have your back at all costs. Send out wedding invitations sealed with wax and a privacy notice on the envelope, as well as a note inside containing special instructions to, well, not say a word.
Choose a venue away from your usual stomping ground. Whether it be a destination wedding in Bali or a location a little further up town, doing so will throw off your trackers - you could even hang luxurious velvet curtains around the room to enforce a sense of secrecy.
