    Our countdown to Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries' Sunday (and Monday) night wedding event on E! wraps up with Britney Spears' surprise ceremony in Las Vegas.

    It may not be the most romantic or extravagant wedding ever but for sheer jaw dropping value, this was one wild set of "I dos" we never saw coming. 

    EXCLUSIVE: Get Kim's Wedding Viewing Kit

    When: Jan. 3, 2004

    Where: Little White Wedding Chapel on the Strip

    On the List: There were no family members or friends but no paparazzi either. The media never saw it coming!

    Can't Top This: Britney Spears' surprise vow swap with childhood friend, Jason Alexander, scores on several superlative fronts. Like most unexpected. Even top-secret celebrity weddings aren't pulled off with this much discretion.

    The singer, who later told MTV the spirit of Sin City "took over me," spontaneously tied the knot in a 24-hour chapel wearing jeans and a baseball cap. The couple then returned to a luxury suite at the Palms hotel where Brit later met up with her manager, brother and some friends. Not your typical honeymoon.

    In fact, this newlywed bliss wasn't built to last and just 55 hours later it was all over. Spears petitioned a judge to annul the union—making Brit's quickie coupling the shortest celebrity wedding on record.

    Easy come, easy go.
