On Wednesday, Kelly Clarkson announced her plans to elope with fiancé Brandon Blackstock, canceling their previously planned October wedding. Just one day earlier, the "American Idol" alum told Ryan Seacrest that she finds wedding planning "overwhelming" and that she's "so over" it. She echoed a similar sentiment in a statement to People on Wednesday.

"We are so busy that we finally just came to terms the other night and were like, 'So, we change our minds and we want to elope," she told the magazine. "We just got so overwhelmed by it -- all the decisions."

But Clarkson isn't the only celebrity to forgo the pomp and circumstance of a big wedding and tie the knot in a quiet, low-key ceremony instead. Click through the slideshow below for 15 other Hollywood couples who did the same.
