21 of the Most Lavish Celebrity Weddings of All Time

Princess Diana’s nuptials to Prince Charles didn’t have a happy ending, but it’s still considered the gold standard for spectacular weddings. From her gorgeous 25-foot train to the balcony kiss, many celebrity brides and grooms have tried to emulate those same picture-perfect moments which can be bought for a very steep price.

A big-budget wedding doesn’t guarantee a happily-ever-after story, though. Just ask Kim Kardashian, who makes this elite list twice. She had second thoughts the night before her $10 million wedding to Kris Humphries in 2011, but she didn’t want to disappoint anyone. “I felt pressure, I thought I was going to let everyone down,” she said, according to Us Weekly. “The show paid us, obviously, a fee to film the show. I took my entire fee and probably Kris’ [fee] because I wanted a bigger wedding than what they were going to pay for. So I used all of our production money on the wedding.”

An extravagant wedding doesn’t spell doomsday for everyone because we know that no one can penetrate George and Amal Clooney’s love bubble, and so far, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have endured more dramatic twists and turns than any soap opera writer could ever dream of — and yet, their relationship has only grown stronger. So take a look at the list of some of the most expensive celebrity weddings over the decades, we have a feeling a few couples will surprise you!
