Every girl dreams of the perfect wedding, with the most beautiful dress, and of course, Prince Charming. Some celebrities are able to turn these dreams into reality with weddings that both cost millions of dollars and look gorgeous. From custom-made attire to venues that resemble paradise, these celebrity couples top our list of lavish weddings we will never forget:
1. Prince William and Kate Middleton: Undoubtedly the most talked-about wedding of 2011 and perhaps the most anticipated ‘I do’ since Princess Diana’s royal wedding, Prince William and Kate Middleton had a lavish wedding that will be very difficult to top. The royal pair wed at Westminster Abbey in front of 1,900 guests, while thousands more gathered outside to watch the newlyweds ride by in a horse-drawn carriage and kiss on the balcony of Buckingham Palace. The cake alone cost $80,000 and Middleton’s custom-made dress cost $70,000. Overall the wedding had to be supported by the tax-payers of England because it cost over $30 million.
2. Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries: The whole world was fortunate enough to see this wedding thanks to a camera crew so large that 50 guests had to be cut to accommodate for it. Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries wed in a beautiful vintage Hollywood black-and-white-themed ceremony where she helped design every detail. The venue was at a private estate in Montecito, California that is worth an estimated $20 million. Over 500 guests witnessed the ‘I do’s’ under large white tents that were built to keep the wedding under wraps and to fit in with the black-and-white theme. Let’s not forget about the wedding dresses; yes, there was more than one. Each of the three gowns was Vera Wang and reportedly cost $20,000 a pop.
