Sarah Jessica Parker wore a black wedding dress because she was "embarrassed" about being a bride.
The 'Sex and the City' star said she and spouse Matthew Broderick decided to try and escape the media attention when they tied the knot in 1997.
Sarah - who has a five-year-old son James Wilkie with Matthew - explained: "I wore a black dress. As an actor, a lot of attention is paid to you. And for some reason, I felt on that day, that I should not bring attention to myself. And my husband kind of had the same attitude about it.
"I think we were embarrassed to be a traditional bride and groom. We wanted to throw a party, and deflect attention off us."
The 43-year-old actress also revealed the first day of shooting 'Sex and the City: The Movie' was one of the most memorable days of her life.
She added: "The first scene was in chronological order. It was the scene of the four of us on Park Avenue. Kim Cattrall is in the red, I'm in the white Ralph Lauren, and it was one of the most unforgettable days of my life.
"It was this perfect September day and the streets were lined with hundreds and hundreds of people watching. It was like being in an alternate universe for about two hours."
