It's not surprising that the super-connected couple shared their pre-wedding bash — and made it goth. In photos Kardashian posted in June 2022, following the couple's lavish Italian wedding, there were "Romeo and Juliet vibes for the Bach ☠️❤️‍🔥🕯🖤," Kardashian wrote.

The carousel of photos and video included a picture of the couple leaning in for a kiss at a dinner table decorated with multiple white candles, and a red heart-shaped cake with words that red, "KRAVIS 4EVER." The post also featured an image of a human heart-shaped bag next to a red chalice.

The couple spent their last days as single people partying in Las Vegas with close friends and family. The joint festivities began on Oct. 8, 2021, once they landed their private plane in Sin City and were picked up by a red Rolls Royce and a fleet of town cars. They later made their way to the immersive party experience Area 15, where Hilton zip-lined; then the group danced the night away at Zouk Nightclub.

Guests, including sister Nicky Hilton, received personalized goodies, including a custom can of rosé with Paris' photo and a tote bag embroidered with the words "Paris & Carter That's Hot."

The pair married in a three-day November 2021 affair at her grandfather's estate, filmed for her Peacock series, Paris in Love.

Heather Rae Young and Tarek El Moussa

As their wedding day approached, the HGTV star and Selling Sunset realtor decided to get in one last big co-ed bash with friends before saying their "I dos." A rep for the couple told PEOPLE exclusively in September 2021 that the festivities included "an '80s themed pool party." They also planned "a special group dinner, as well as a spa morning for the guests."

Judging from their photos on Instagram, looks like Young and El Moussa had a blast and that (as El Moussa said) "the joint bachelor & bachelorette was the right call."

The pair wed that October.

Ahead of their memorable wedding, the couple had their joint celebration with about 40 of their closest family and friends at the Warwick in Los Angeles in June 2014.

"It wasn't about being naughty," a friend of Simpson's told PEOPLE at the time. "They just wanted a great night out with their friends and family."

"They didn't want a traditional bachelor-bachelorette where they go off and do their own thing, because our group of friends is so close we just wanted to all be together," added Simpson's longtime friend and bridesmaid, Stephanie Terblanche.

The couple got married a month after their bachelor-bachelorette party and celebrated their 7th wedding anniversary this July.

The retired Olympic skater and her sports producer fiancé turned their party into a four-day event in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico back in 2017. The couple brought 13 of their closet friends along to spend their time swimming in an infinity pool, enjoying food made by a private chef and lounging on a private cove surrounded by a gorgeous beach.

"I didn't have the urge to go to Vegas or Miami or do anything crazy like that, I just wanted to be with Todd and all of our friends together," Lipinski told PEOPLE at the time. "We're so happy we did a joint party, because a lot of our friends hadn't met before and now we have four days of great memories to talk about at the wedding."

The two are still going strong, and celebrated their wedding anniversary in June.
