SHANIA TWAIN & FRÉDÉRIC THIÉBAUD
It was a happy ending to a wild romance. Shania found love with Frédéric, husband of her close friend and employee Marie-Anne, after Marie-Anne took up with Shania's husband, music producer Robert "Mutt" Lange (got that?). In a relationship swap for the record books, the two heartbroken divorcées leaned on each other and fell in love, marrying on New Year's Day 2011 in a beach wedding at the Rincon Ocean Villa in Puerto Rico.

SHARON & OZZY OSBOURNE
While Sharon and Ozzy's 1982 Hawaiian wedding was as wild as could be (he wore custom-made fangs, nibbled on his bride's neck instead of kissing her and served a brandy-soaked wedding cake), their New Year's Eve 2002 vow-renewal ceremony was a tad more traditional. The party at the Beverly Hills Hotel included celebrity guests like Justin Timberlake and Chris Rock, while daughter Kelly Osbourne served as flower girl.
