Actress Kristen Bell is planning to shun a traditional wedding ceremony when she ties the knot with fiance Dax Shephard, in favor of a more low-key affair.
The new parents, who have been engaged since 2010, originally did not want to wed until same-sex marriage was legal in America, but now that gay unions are recognized by the federal government, the Forgetting Sarah Marshall star reveals the couple will tie the knot - but don't expect a big, lavish affair.
She says, "We're not having a wedding. It's not a desire of either of ours to have any sort of day of celebration for us. I feel like we get enough attention in our daily lives and we just want something sort of private that involves pen and paper."
Instead, Bell insists they want the marriage process to be more casual.
She continues, "It could be any day. Honestly, I could go home and we could do it today, there's no forethought really going into it.
"We do want all of the legal opportunities that come with a binding marriage, especially now that we have a kid. It's very important, there are a lot of things that you need to make available and have in writing for your kid...Yeah, one of these days though."
Bell and Shepard welcomed a baby daughter in May (13).
