The Most Extravagant Celebrity Weddings You’ll Never Forget
It’s no secret that weddings are pricey occurrences, regardless of how well you plan your money management. With their unlimited big-day finances, some lucky brides and grooms have taken it to a whole new level, earning them a spot on the list of the most expensive weddings of all time. These couples spent a lot of money on their weddings—we’re talking eight figures (yes, you read that right!). Because, naturally, if you’ve found the one and have the financial means to do so, why not throw a wedding to remember?
When it comes to the day of your wedding, all bets are off when you’re famous. Some celebrities break the rule and prefer to keep things low-key, while others go all out. This frequently entails destination weddings, six-figure wedding gowns, exorbitant security costs to keep paparazzi at bay, and a slew of other pricey extras. After all, it’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity – for some, at least. A look from the outside to their private aircraft, these weddings are usually designed to wow. Take a look back at the lavish weddings that won our hearts, dominated our social media feeds, and were all we could speak about.
George Clooney & Amal Alamuddin
You know it’s going to be a huge party when a legendary bachelor like George Clooney finally settles down. The Oscar-winning actor and his now-wife tied the knot in Italy throughout a four-day weekend.
The wedding celebrations of the actor and human rights lawyer looked like they came straight out of a high-end film. Clooney and Alamuddin’s wedding is said to have cost $4.6 million, including accommodations at the five-star Hotel Cipriani and 5-course reception banquets for all of their guests. They spent about $3 million budget on 95 rooms for its guests. The wedding feast at the hotel was a raucous affair, with 250 bottles of champagne, 200 bottles of Grey Goose vodka, and 600 bottles of Casamigos Tequila! For Clooney and Alamuddin, one wedding celebration isn’t enough. Just weeks after marrying in Italy, the newlyweds attended the second reception in Buckinghamshire, England.
