When it comes to weddings, many people try to make their big day as affordable as possible. For those with big bank accounts, being thrifty goes right out the window. Celebrities are known for going to the extreme with everything, and weddings are no exception. These five couples spent a fortune on a day they’ll never forget.
1. Tom Cruise And Katie Holmes
In 2004, Katie Holmes told Seventeen Magazine, “I used to think I was going to marry Tom Cruise.” Two years later, that dream became a reality with a wedding ceremony at Odescalchi Castle. The $3 million wedding had it all: fireworks, a massive wedding cake, and a performance from Andrea Bocelli.
2. Liza Minnelli And David Gest
Any wedding where Michael Jackson is a guest is sure to be epic. That’s the case for Liza Minnelli and David Gest, who tied the knot in 2002. The $3.5 million ceremony, which took place at the Marble Collegiate Church, was topped off with Natalie Cole performing “Unforgettable.”
3. John Legend And Chrissy Teigen
In 2013, John Legend and Chrissy Teigen had the wedding of a lifetime at Lake Como, Italy. While most brides only have one gown, Teigen decided to wear three gowns throughout the day. Legend also performed his tune “All Of Me” for his new wife. If that wasn’t enough, Stevie Wonder also performed for the bride and groom.
