Once Wasn't Enough: Beyonce & 19 Other Celebs Who Renewed Their Vows

Hollywood A-listers don't do anything in moderation. And definitely not when it's a matter of love and marriage.

Nevertheless, these extravagant ceremonies come in two flavors–publicized for the whole world to see, and so private that sometimes the paparazzi find out about it after many years! Or maybe it's more accurate to say three types of ceremonies—because some of these famous couples aren't happy with just one ceremony.

From Heidi Klum and Seal's media-circus vow renewals every year (when they were married, that is) to David and Victoria Beckham's low-key renewal ceremony in the Buckingham Palace (it was so under the radar that the media did not even find out about it for two years!), the following list has enough glitz and glam to make fans go full starry-eyed.

So here are 20 celebs who renewed their vows because one time was just not enough!

And while all of them aren't together now, what matters is the sentiment behind the renewals. After all, people do grow and change over the years and sometimes find themselves on a life path that takes them away from the one they love. But if they made an effort while it lasted, no one can fault them for it!
