When you’re a celebrity, all bets are off when it comes to your wedding day. Some A-listers don’t always live by this rule and prefer to keep things low-key (lookin’ at you, Lily Allen, and David Harbour), while others go all out. This usually means destination weddings, six-figure wedding gowns, spending insane amounts of money on security to keep paparazzi at bay, and a bunch of other expensive details. After all, it’s a once-in-a-lifetime event…well, for some. Ahead, dive into some of the most expensive weddings of all time, and perhaps find some inspiration for your own special day. (A girl can dream.)
Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon
During their five-year marriage, Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon renewed their vows twice. One of those times involved a magical celebration at Disneyland. The dreamy nuptials happened after the park closed and reportedly cost $180,000. The couple filed for divorce in 2014.
Julianne Hough and Brooks Laich
The Dancing With the Stars dancer married NHL star Brooke Laich in 2017. Hough’s custom Marchesa wedding dress cost around $20,000 alone, and the total for the couple’s outdoor Idaho wedding is said to have been between $232,000 to $236,000.
