In the digital age, standard snail mail is slowly becoming a thing of the past. And even when it comes to wedding invitations, it seems like Amy Schumer definitely concurs. The actress and comedian tied the knot in a spur-of-the-moment ceremony to her new beau, Chris Fischer, February 13. The couple went from Instagram official to married in a matter of two days (quick turnaround!), with Schumer first announcing the pair's relationship on social media on February 11. So, with a wedding this spontaneous, there's just no time to send out proper wedding invitations. Instead, Schumer resorted to simply shooting her guests a text.
Apparently, standard traditions don't apply when it comes to secret celeb weddings, and invites via text will suffice. "Most of the guests found out the wedding was happening from a text Amy sent," a source told Us Weekly. "It was, 'Hey, this is happening. If you can make it, great. If not, no worries.' " It truly doesn't get more nonchalant than that. And considering Schumer's laid-back, IDGAF attitude, we would expect nothing less.
Schumer notified her nearest and dearest of her impromptu Malibu nuptials just two days before the wedding itself. Thankfully for the newlyweds, plenty of A-listers checked their phones and cleared their schedules in time to attend the ceremony, which was most likely one for the books (where was our text invite...?). Celebrity attendees included the likes of Jennifer Lawrence, Larry David, Judd Apatow, and Jennifer Aniston.
Adding to the casual vibe of the informal ceremony, Schumer and her chef husband said "I do" in a seaside rental property with fellow comedian John Early officiating the event while dressed in drag. The lovebirds wrote their own vows, which were powerful enough to move J. Law to tears.
Fischer and Schumer kept their wedding on the DL by forbidding guests from using their phones to snap any pics, but the new bride blew up her own social media with snapshots to commemorate the unforgettable day. Among the many, many photos she posted, Schumer showed off the venue, her Monique Lhuillier gown, and some candid moments of her guests busting a move.
The pair had only been dating for a few months prior to their wedding but, hey, when you know, you know. And there's no time like the present to take your relationship to the next step. Plus, they had Mother Nature on their side during their big day. "It was supposed to be a crappy day, but it ended up being beautiful," the source also told Us Weekly. If that's not a sign, we don't know what is.
Let this be a lesson to all of us to always have our phones handy, in case we happen to get invited to a wedding via text (especially a secret celeb wedding).
