Los Angeles: Actress Kristen Bell, who has been engaged to Dax Shepard for two years, says there`s no need for a wedding as it will bring "too much stress".
"We consider ourselves already married - we already wear the rings, I don`t want a wedding. It`s too much stress," showbizspy.com quoted the 31-year-old as saying.
Bell says she now realises how "little" marriage actually means for the couple.
"I come from a very traditional household. For a while, I thought a marriage certificate was important, but the older I get, the more I see how little it means," she said.
"I think one of the most important things you can do in your life is pair up with someone else. I think living alongside someone and sharing everything with them is just beautiful," she added.
