Organizers of a fantasy wedding on the Las Vegas Strip between Hollywood’s hottest unmarried couple got cold feet.

Madame Tussauds nixed the plan to stage a depiction of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt tying the knot after a representative for Pitt protested, representatives for the actor and the wax museum said Monday.

“I personally found it a little odd that they were re-creating a wedding that never really happened,” said Cindy Guagenti, Los Angeles-based spokeswoman for Pitt. “As Brad’s representative, I found it disturbing.”

Adrian Jones, general manager of the wax museum at the Venetian resort, said in a statement that the decision was made to not cross the stars.

“Since Madame Tussauds enjoys excellent relationships with the celebrity community, we made our own decision not to create the wedding scene,” he said.

The Brangelina wedding had been scheduled Wednesday to mark the unveiling of a Jolie wax figure. Pitt’s already got one.

The scene would have had wax figures of George Clooney, standing in as best man, and the Rev. Robert Schuller, pastor and president of the Crystal Cathedral in Garden Grove, Calif., officiating.

Wax witnesses would have included the likenesses of the likes of Elvis, Liberace, John Wayne, Bugsy Siegel, Frank Sinatra, Ben Affleck and Luciano Pavarotti.

Instead, Jolie’s wax figure will be introduced Wednesday, without the wedding bells.

Guagenti said Pitt was unaware of Madame Tussauds’ plans. He and Jolie were with their three children in Mumbai, India, where Jolie is filming a movie about slain journalist Daniel Pearl.

Pitt told Esquire magazine for its October edition that he doesn’t intend to marry Jolie until legal restrictions are lifted in the U.S. and “everyone else in the country who wants to be married is legally able.”
