Britney’s Big Day – What You Didn’t Know

September 22 2004, 5:55 pm

Cobbling together the bits and pieces available in various media accounts, it appears the festivities went down like this:

Britney's mother, Lynne Spears, purchased casual slacks, while Britney's younger sister, Jamie Lynn, dyed her hair back to its original color of brown to prepare for the event. Britney, also back to brunette, spent the day prepping at the Burke Williams Spa in Santa Monica, where she checked in under the name Bella and had a facial and massage, according to TV show "The Insider." When the time came, friends and family (holed up at the Fairmont Miramar Hotel in Santa Monica) were driven by two vans to a secret location, save for Jamie Lynn, who pulled up in a black limo.

About 25 miles from the hotel, the wedding planner had made arrangements to hold the affair in Studio City, California, in the tented backyard of her ex-husband's house. Her ex also tailored custom-made tuxedoes for the groom and the men in the wedding party (Federline's brother was best man).

The low-key ceremony was short, starting at 7:30 p.m. and only lasting about five to 10 minutes. Spears walked down the aisle in a white strapless dress by designer Monique L'Huillier, with a long veil and a tiara. She carried a bouquet of pink and white roses, while her bridesmaids and maid of honor Jamie Lynn wore burgundy and carried red roses. For rings, the bride and groom swapped platinum bands — a plain one for her, and one with diamonds for him.
