Weddings are ridiculously huge expenses even for poor folks just getting a certificate at City Hall. When you have money it just keeps being expensive. It’s a matter of scale. You have to spend TOO much money. Here’s how much the wealthy have spent on their nuptials.
Sheikh Al Nahyan & Princess Salama
$45 million. It’s good to be Crown Prince of Dubai. You can DO stuff…like building a 20,000 seat stadium just to entertain your wedding guests.
Prince William And Kate Middleton
$34 Million. Compared to Charles and Diana, this royal couple is downright downsizing.
Wayne Rooney & Coleen McLoughlin
$8.8 Million. Rooney is one of the biggest stars in soccer, the world’s biggest sport. He plays for Manchester United, the world’s must popular team. The wedding was a big deal to almost everyone outside of the United States.
Elizabeth Taylor And Larry Fortensky
$4 Million. A Liz Taylor wedding was a kind of genre as much as it was a wedding. It had to cost $4 million just on principle.
Paul McCartney And Heather Mills
$3.6 Million. They rented a castle. There were fireworks. $300,000 just on flowers. It lasted six years. The marriage, not the wedding.
Vanisha Mittal And Amit Bhatia
$78 Million. Most of that expense comes from renting out the Palace of Versailles to hold your wedding. Business is good for Bhatia!
Liza Minnelli And David Gest
$4.2 Million. Best Man and Best Lady were Michael Jackson and Liz Taylor. Half a million dollars in flowers and a sixty piece orchestra including Stevie Wonder and Tony Bennett performing. Golly.
Kim Kardashian And Kanye West
$30 Million, a number almost unimaginable. That’s what happens when her dress costs half a million, and when the wedding is in Italy but the reception is taking place in two other countries, with all the guests Lear-jetting from place to place.
Chelsea Clinton And Marc Mezvinsky
$5.4 Million. You know a royal wedding is expensive, even when it’s for knock-off American royalty.
Prince Charles And Lady Diana
$110 Million. This remains THE wedding. Not just in expense, but in terms of its power to stop the world. The only thing that might get bigger would be if the Pope got married…
