Busy Philipps celebrated her 40th birthday by throwing a destination wedding — for herself.
The actress and talk show host, who has been married to American screenwriter Marc Silverstein since 2007, held an outdoors “wedding [to myself]” at a popular wedding venue in Mexico.
She even turned up in a white bridal-style gown.
Explaining her rationale on Instagram, she wrote, “I decided I wanted to throw myself a destination wedding (to myself) for my 40th at one of my favorite places in the world.”
The event was held at Flora’s Farms in San Jose del Cabo, Mexico, a popular wedding venue.
Celebrity guests included Girls writer Jenni Konner and actress Elizabeth Banks.
Philipps wore a cut-out white midi dress by Zimmerman for the occasion. Earlier this year, Philipps wore her actual bridal gown from her 2007 wedding to Silverstein in an appearance on her since-canceled talk show, Busy Tonight.
The sologamy trend explained
Marrying yourself — a concept known as “sologamy” — has become something of a microtrend in recent years.
While you can’t legally marry yourself, the trend is often seen as a declaration of self-love.
In 2017, fitness trainer Laura Messi held a wedding ceremony to marry herself in front of 70 guests.
Meanwhile, earlier this year, a woman married her own duvet in celebration of “the most intimate and reliable relationship” she had ever had.
