The 10 Most Expensive Weddings and Their Cakes


Posted by admin on June 11, 2013

10. Christina Aguilera and Jordan Bratman

Jordan-Bratman-and-Christina-Aguilera

This opulent wedding between pop star and producer cost 2 million dollars in 2005. However, if adjusted for inflation, the wedding cost 2.2 million dollars by our current standards.  Hosted at the Napa Valley’s Staglin Family Vineyard, 150 guests were invited, including Sharon Stone. Christina Aguilera commissioned a Spanish-style Christian Lacroix gown, for $80,000 on its own. The décor included a winter-themed tent lined with white roses, crystals, sliver and a massive 5-tiered wedding cake.

9. Arun Nayar and Elizabeth Hurley

In 2007, a supermodel and the Senior VP of Tyco paid $2.6 (2.7 with inflation) for their wedding. Elizabeth Hurley and Arun Nayar held a ceremony over the period of 8 days located at Sunderly Castle in Gloucestershire and eventually Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur.

8. Paul McCartney and Heather Mills

Paul McCartney and Heather Mills paid 3 million in 2002 (3.6 million with inflation) for a lavish Indian themed wedding. Hosted in Monaghan, Ireland’s St. Salvador’s church the former Beatle and model celebrated with Indian dancers, $145,000 in flowers, $150,000 in fireworks, and a vegetarian banquet. Their wedding cake was seemingly designed and baked by Choccywoccydoodah of Brighton, England.

7. Elizabeth Taylor and Larry Fortensky

The 1991wedding between the iconic Elizabeth Taylor and Larry Fortensky (a construction worker). Back in the early 90s, the wedding cost the couple about 2.5 million (4 million by today’s standards).

6. Liza Minnelli and David Gest

David and Liza

Liza Minnelli and David Gest were married in 2002, and footed a 3.5 million bill (4.2 with inflation) for the services. With Michael Jackson as the best man and Elizabeth Taylor as the maid of honor, it is regarded as the largest celebrity wedding of all time. With a 60 piece orchestra, Tony Bennett, Natalie Cole, Stevie Wonder, entertainment was no light expense. Additionally, Liza and David spent $700,000 on flowers alone and $40,000 on a wedding cake.

5. Chelsea Clinton and Marc Mezvinsky

In 2010, Chelsea Clinton, daughter of Bill Clinton, and Marc Mezvinsky, an investment banker were married for around the 5 million dollar tag.  While much of the money went to security, the Vera Wang wedding dress, Oprah appearance, and $11,000 cake certainly inflated the costs.

4. Wayne Rooney and Coleen McLoughlin

Wayne-Rooney and Coleen-McLoughlin

When Manchester United footballer married his long time working-class girlfriend, the celebration was extravagant to say the least. Several days of partying on a rented yacht and a five star hotel in addition to the 17th century wedding locale and the medieval abbey reception cost around $34 million.  We are sure the massive wedding cake helped pad the costs as well.

3. Prince William and Kate Middleton

The eldest son of Prince Charles and his wife Kate Middleton spent upwards of $35 million on their royal ceremony. While most goes to security, the $80,000 wedding cake certainly pulls some weight.

2. Vanisha Mittal and Amit Bhatia

The $66 million dollar wedding of Swordfish Investments and a wealthy heiress certainly. From invitations delivered in silver boxes, plane tickets to a five-day-parties at Versailles. Kylie Minogue performing and jewel filled gift bags uped the costs as well.

1. Prince Charles and Lady Diana

While this famous wedding cost $48 million in 1081, when adjusted for inflation, the cost comes close to $110, making it the most expensive celebrity wedding.  The 27 mini wedding cakes and main wedding cake took months to prepare. Even duplicates were made for worst case scenarios.

I can't even fathom spending that much money on a wedding. That money that could hold me down for years without working.
