American actress, Busy Philipps celebrates 40th birthday by holding lavish wedding to herself (photos)

American actress, Busy Philipps has just celebrated her 40th birthday by hosting a lavish Mexican destination wedding, in which she married herself.


She spared no expense for the occasion, rocking a $1,600 Bergdorf Goodman gown during a self-centered ceremony in San Jose del Cabo. Philipps took to Instagram to share the concept behind the bash, posting a photo of herself in the stunning dress.

Though she’s been married to screenwriter Marc Silverstein since 2007, the actress and TV host wrote;

So I was thinking about turning 40. And it’s weird because my perpetual age is 19-sometimes 27 depending but now I’m 40(my birthday is the 25th actually) HOW AM I 40 YEARS OLD? Anyway.

I decided I wanted to throw myself a destination wedding(to myself) for my 40th at one of my favorite places in the world @florafarms in Cabo.

This was, without question, one of the greatest, most fun, and beautiful nights of my life. Thank you thank you thank you to all of my friends and family who made this weekend the best of all time.

Here are some details from my 40th! 🌸 A lot of the design of the party originated from the invitations that @andreaghickey designed for me many months ago. I found Andrea because one of my favorite follows on social meeds @bobbyfinger shouted her out after the Buzzfeed layoffs where she had worked as an illustrator and I thought, “well this is perfect; maybe she would like to illustrate my invites while she finds another big job!” And she did! I had the idea that since it was a wedding to myself, the invites could be wedding like but a little f*cked up, I wanted all my favorite things wrapped up in flowers and vines and Andrea nailed it(scroll to the last pic for the invite)! Then we found @amyabbottevents who is based in Cabo (maybe @itsmeraypadilla found her? Probably he did 💜) and after a five minute call, she totally understood my vibe and made it all happen in the easiest way ever. I basically just wanted it to be an explosion of color, like what I feel like on the inside, I guess? Oh! A huge shout out to DJ Alex from Cabo! He was amazing and even played a Tori Amos remix of Raspberry Swirl for me, (probs against his better judgement😂) No one stopped dancing the whole night.💜 The menu @florafarms put together was incredible (the potatoes❤️😭) and if you haven’t been there I highly recommend it, it’s so insanely magical. And a huge thank you goes to @itsmeraypadilla and Marc, who figured out logistics so I wouldn’t have to. 🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸
