Retired Swiss tennis star Martina Hingis exchanged wedding vows with Thibault Hutin, a French show jumper, in Paris last week, according to People.  Hingis acknowledges that the nuptials may have taken some by surprise, but everything was planned out in advance.  The ceremony was held at City Hall in the Paris suburb of Neuilly-sur-Seine with a small reception that followed in the Presidential Suite of Paris’s Four Season’s  George V.  There will be a traditional Swiss wedding feast held in the spring.  The newlyweds met last April, shortly after Hingis had broken off her engagement to Swiss attorney Andreas Bieri.

Why should you keep the details of your wedding a secret?

Cupid’s Advice:

Everyone loves a wedding, and sometimes that becomes a problem.  Here are some reasons to keep wedding details to yourself:

1. Everyone has an opinion: Sometimes people forget that your vision is the only one that matters.  While you may be set on keeping your big day small, someone else may feel a giant blowout would be better.

2. Avoid your inner bridezilla: Nothing will test your etiquette like planning a wedding.  Keeping details of your wedding quiet will cause less of an uproar from everyone else, and you won’t have to answer to anyone but yourself.

3. Drama-free: Planning a wedding is stressful enough, and there’s no need to get extra people involved if it’s not necessary.  At the end of the day, everyone will be happy to celebrate the love between you and your new spouse.
