All of us, especially women, dream of a fairytale wedding where we get to wear our princess-like luxurious wedding gown, get wed in a fabulous castle or a private island, walk on yards of flowers, and celebrate for endless days with thousands of people. Although weddings and wedding dresses in Lebanon are quiet spectacular to say the least, and bridal dresses in Lebanon are from the most beautiful ever, here is a glance at the world’s most extravagant and expensive weddings! ELIZABETH HURLEY AND ARUN NAYAR – $2.5M.
Model and actress Elizabeth Hurley and VP of Tyco celebrated their marriage in an eight-day festival that included a ceremony in Gloucestershire at Suderly Castle and one in Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur. Wearing a diamond tiara with her two exquisite wedding dresses was the least the gorgeous bride could do, while the lavish wedding included $300,000 private jets, over $100,000 for accommodations, and a $10,000 a night romantic bridal suite in India. LIZA MINNELLI AND DAVID GEST – $4.2M.
Labeled as one the most expensive celebrity weddings, this unique ceremony gathered stars in what was worthy of a Broadway production! With Michael Jackson as the best man and Elizabeth Taylor as the maid of honors, the couple threw a whimsical celebration party, spending over $800,000 on flowers and cake alone, not to mention the bride’s Bob Mackie wedding dress which was said to cost $45,000. The wedding also featured a sixty piece orchestra, Tony Bennett, and Stevia Wonder. CHELSEA CLINTON AND MARC MEVINSKY – $5M.
When daughter of President Bill Clinton gets married, nothing less than the ultimate of luxury is expected. Held at Astor Courts in Rhinebeck in 2011, the summer wedding’s extravagant spending included over $600,000 on air-conditioned tents alone, a four-foot lavish $11,000 cake, $750,000 for catering, $250,000 for flowers, and another $250,000 for the rehearsal dinner, among other lavish details. The bride was dressed in an ivory silk wedding gown with a draped tulle bodice designed by Vera Wang. WAYNE ROONEY AND COLEEN MCLOUGHLIN – $8M.
Dating since they were sixteen, Rooney and McLoughlin had the wedding of their dreams in 2008. Ordinary celebration was out of question, which is why the couple flew 65 guests to Genoa to celebrate on a $120 million dollar yacht with a masked ball. Celebration days on the yacht were followed by more in a nearby five star luxury hotel. The actual ceremony took place in a 17th century villa while the reception was in a medieval abbey overlooking Portofino, Italy. KIM KARDASHIAN & KANYE WEST - $30 M.
When a wedding costs $30 million, it’s not so surprising if the bride throws half a million on her wedding dress. Yes, that’s exactly how much Kim’s Givenchy haute couture dress billed on her wedding in 2014! The couple decided to tie the knot at the Forte di Belvedere in Florence, Italy, while the official celebrations started a week before with a special reception at the Chateau de Wideville and a lavish pre-wedding dinner at the Palace of Versailles. $250,000 was spent only for transporting guests to the ceremony. Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan & Princess Salama - $100 M.
Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and son of the first ever president of the United Arab Emirates, Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan married his wife Shaikha Salama bint Hamdan in one of the most expensive weddings ever thrown in 1981. With a 20,000 seat stadium built just for the wedding and total costs amounting to $100 million, one of the most expensive weddings on record treated guests for a seven-day celebration carnival. What’s really unique and amazing about this wedding is that the couple visited every town in the emirate by horseback during the week celebration to feed the people of their country.
