Jennifer Aniston's wedding was so secret, guests were in jeans.

“There were people there just in jeans.”

When Jennifer Aniston, 46, and Justin Theroux, 44, got married earlier this year, it was VERY SECRET.

The couple, who married in their backyard on 5 August, organised a super-private wedding to keep the papparazi out.

Only problem was, it was so top-secret they didn’t tell some of their guests that it was actually a wedding. Instead, they pretended it was just a little birthday party.

And while that tactic prevented leaks,  it also made for some pretty awkward dress codes — with some guests showing up in jeans and thongs. (Now that’s what we call the price of fame.)

Speaking to Ellen DeGeneres about the secret wedding yesterday, Anison‘s new husband actor/director Justin Theroux said that telling guests different stories to keep the press at bay was actually a ‘massive miscalculation.’

“We kind of realised, like, that was a terrible plan, because you’re basically telling half your guests, ‘You’re unemployed and we can’t trust you,’” the actor joked.

“We just kind of put it out there, and people that said yes to the birthday [we didn’t tell], and then people who said, ‘We can’t,’ we really put more pressure on them to be at the ‘birthday.’”

Hence the jeans.

But at least their planned worked.
