There a lots of articles written regarding budget weddings these days, so just for a change I thought you might like to read about those who seem to have an abundance of money. Obviously I have had to source my information from Google as I was not invited to any of the below mentioned weddings!!

  • Charles and Diana over £73 million
  • Kate and William over £22 million
  • Wayne Rooney and Colleen McLoughlin over £5 million
  • Chelsea Clinton and Marc Mezinsky over £2.5 million
  • Liza Minnelli and David Gest over £2 million

If you are going to spend so much money on a wedding it will mean that you have more to spend on your dress. Victoria Beckham’s wedding dress has been estimated to cost around £10,000, which is a mere snip when you compare this with Kate Middleton’s dress which was in the region of £266,000. Then again if you have a cool £1 million to spend you could have your dress made from peacock feathers, 18k gold and embellished with diamonds!

No doubt your jewellery needs to reflect your bank balance, which I guess can be seriously depleted after the cost of the wedding. For instance, the following ladies have rocks on their fingers, which need a high degree of security; Catherine Zeta-Jones over £600,000; Beyonce – £5 million and Elizabeth Taylor – nearly £6 million. Mind you Elizabeth also married several times, so the figure is higher still if you add up the cost of all the rings.

This, however, just goes to show that it doesn’t matter how much you spend on your wedding, it doesn’t guarantee that you will live happily ever after with your other half.

So the moral of the story is, spend what you can afford and enjoy the rest of your life with the one you love.
