Everyone adores Chrissy Teigen and John Legend for their growing family and candid social media posts, but we will never get over their 2013 Italian wedding. The duo exchanged “I dos” while looking at a gorgeous view of Lake Como, surrounded by lush florals. The exact cost isn’t known, but the wedding involved one of the most exclusive wedding venues in the world, three Vera Wang dresses, and a $200000 engagement ring to kick things off, so we’re sure it hit the million mark pretty quickly.
The Villa Pizzo region is where the pair allegedly fell in love while on holiday. Hence, their chosen destination wedding was befitting, considering where their love story began. Of course, we’re dealing with John Legend here; obviously, he serenaded his newly wedded wife with his biggest hit song, “All of Me.”
Trump Wedding Number 2
Donald Trump married First Lady Melania back in 2005 in a moderately expensive ceremony. The lavish affair was held in Palm Beach, Florida, at the Bethesda by-the-Sea Episcopal Church. Amazingly, the celebration only cost $1 million, which doesn’t seem like much for people who literally have walls full of gold in their house, and who had a golden stroller designed for their infant.
But just because they didn’t spend nearly as much as some others on this list, doesn’t mean the ceremony wasn’t extravagant. After all, several high-profile guests were in attendance, including Hillary and Bill Clinton, Matt Lauer, Elton John, and Heidi Klum. The couple even hired Billy Joel to perform for the event.
A Dolce & Gabbana Wedding
Can anyone keep up with the Kardashians anymore? Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker got hitched thrice. The first time was in Las Vegas and the second time in Santa Barbara. The third and final wedding ceremony (which everyone keeps talking about) unraveled in Portofino, Italy. Surrounded by close family and friends, the couple looked like a million dollars in this stunning 16th-century castle monument. And that makes sense, given that this shindig cost them around $3.5 million.
If you want to have your wedding in this 'objet d'art' of a venue, it'll only set you back by about $4600 if you book it over the European summer months. Unfortunately, this price tag doesn't include Dolce & Gabbana-designed wedding attire or the Italian opera singer Andrea Bocelli that serenaded them into the night.
THE Wedding of 2023
The picture-perfect wedding of Sofia Richie and Elliot Grainge was set on the French Riviera in April 2023. This wedding most definitely pushed the envelope when it comes to celebrity destination weddings. The couple selected the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Rock in Antibes for their nuptials. The event set the couple back (or, whoever was paying) an estimated $4 million. The venue itself cost over $1 million.
The beachfront sanctuary offers panoramic ocean views, overlooking the Mediterranean, and is arguably one of the most exclusive resorts in the French Riviera territory that has hosted a number of royals and politicians over its 150-plus-year history. The bride had three custom-made dresses from Chanel, one for each day of the wedding weekend events: the rehearsal dinner, the formal ceremony, and the after-party.
Hotel Heiress Nicky Hilton and banking heir James Rothschild wedded at Kensington Palace (yes, you heard that correctly, and yes, the official residence of the Prince and Princess of Wales, William and Kate). The wedding was as enchanting as you would expect a wedding of two billionaires to be!
The blonde beauty wore a dramatic white Valentino haute couture wedding gown composed of three different shades of ivory and silver and abundantly adorned with crystals. The showy wedding was a three-day affair that included cocktails on the first day, a black-tie reception on the following day, and ended off with a lavish lunch on the final day.
