    FYI - Total cost of all these could probably rid the world of famine…

    Top 10 Most Expensive Weddings

    For these folks, if their wedding day(s) weren’t the happiest days of their lives, then something is seriously wrong. Especially when they think MONEY buys happiness…But happiness comes from within in what you are & do NOT WHAT YOU SPEND!!!! these top ten of the most extravagant weddings to date ranging from $2 million to $78 million dollars where broadcasting your wedding vows to the world is as important as showing the lining of your wallet.

    10. Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes ($2 million)
    They’re still together, almost 6 years later, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes and they come in at number 10 on the top ten list of grandest weddings of all time. After Tom proposed to Katie on the top of the Eiffel Tower, 19 months before the wedding date, they were married in Italy at the 15[SUP]th[/SUP] century castle, Odescalchi Castle in Rome on November 18[SUP]th[/SUP], 2006. Giorgio Armani designed all the apparel for the bridal party and Andrea Boccelli gave a musical performance. The wedding was attended by 150 guests. The couple honeymooned in Maldives following the elaborate wedding event.
    9. Paul McCartney and Heather Mills ($3 million)
    Fireworks, grand feasting and dancers dressed in Indian costume performed for Paul McCartney and Heather Mill’s wedding in 2001. The $3 million dollar wedding ceremony took place in County, Monaghan, Ireland. The ceremony was held in St. Salvador’s Church and the reception took place at Castle Leslie with 300 guests. Heather Mills wore a dress she herself fashioned and carried roses named after her husband. Following their affair they honeymooned at a private island in Seychelles. They spent their first evening on a $20 million yacht for $19,000 a night.
    8. Liza Minnelli and David Gest ($3.5 million)
    Held at the Manhattan’s Collegiate Church in 2002, with a sum total of 850 wedding guests, the wedding was a monumental event with guests including Natalie Cole singing “Unforgettable”, a 60-piece orchestra also kept the guests entertained along with Tony Bennett. The wedding included a $40,000 6-foot, 12-tier cake, a staff of 500 and a bill of over $700,000 in flowers.
    7. Elizabeth Hurley &ArunNayar ($7 million)
    Wed on June 29, 2006, Elizabeth Hurley and ArunNayar, an Indian businessman married in a 15[SUP]th[/SUP] century castle in Sudeley Castle in Gloucestershire in Britain. The festivities lasted for 8 days across the 2 continents of Europe and Asia. The proceedings began at Sudeley and then the wedding party traveled to UmaidBhawan Palace in Jodhpur, India. The palace suite cost $10,000 a night.
    6. DelphineArnault and Alessandro VallarinoGancia ($7 million)
    Who said a bride isn’t worth it, especially when she’s the daughter of the wealthy French businessman, Bernard Arnault? A father coined the ‘pope of fashion’ in France too means of course, a fancy dress, in fact, one so fancy that it was fashioned by the famous designer, John Galliano. It certainly was a price you’d not find on the racks at David’s Bridal either. Add to a wealthy bride a wealthy groom with a family with a wine dynasty business and you’ve got a splendid party, with of course, plenty of fine wines. They couple wed in 2005 at the Cote d’ Azur in France. The venue was decorated with 5,000 white roses. Harper’s Bazaar called it the “Wedding of the Year”.
    5. Wayne Rooney & Coleen McLoughlin ($15 million)
    Okay if that previous wedding bill wasn’t enough to impress you, try doubling that with a few little extras and you’ve got the wedding of Wayne Rooney and Coleen McLaughlin at $15 million. Colleen McLoughlin, a television presenter/product endorser plus a Manchester United/England football star resulted not only in an expensive wedding but an interesting one at that. The 4 day wedding ceremony took place in Villa Durazzo in Portofino Italy on June 12, 2008. With stunning views of the Italian Rivera on a yacht with 64 guests flown in on five different private jets, the ambiance was beautiful. After spending almost $4 million dollars on a dress designed by Georgia Chapman’s Marchesa label, guests had to wonder if the budget had run out after being served pizza for the reception. In the end, they were able to cut costs of $5 million by allowing Britain’s OK! Magazine to publish exclusive information and pictures about the event, that is, after the pizza was served.
    4. Vikram Chatwal and Priva Sachdey ($20 million)
    Let’s make it an even 20 after 15, that is, $20 mil, and then everything will be up to par for the wedding of VikramChatwal, son of a New York hotel magnet and a jet-setting hotelier and actor and for his model/actress/investment banker bride, PriyaSachdey (who ever said a man couldn’t have it all). The wedding took place on February 18[SUP]th[/SUP], 2006 and is known as one of the most luxurious weddings ever in all of India. Bill Clinton was on the guest list along with many other well-known, high-powered people. The wedding took place over 10 days and was spread across 3 cities in India (Mumbai, Udaipur, and Delhi). There were 600 guests from 26 countries who were all retrieved for the event on chartered jets.
    3. Miss Yugoslavia Aleksandra Kokotovic and AndreyMelnichenko ($30 million)
    Topping a $20 million dollar wedding isn’t easy but for Miss Yugoslavia Aleksandra Kokotovic and AndreyMelnichenko, it wasn’t hard with a $30 million dollar extravaganza that made history in world famous weddings. AndreyMelnichenko, the Russian billionaire and founder of MDM Bank and the Serbian model, Miss Yugoslavia Aleksandra Kokotovic married in Cote D’ Azur, France on September 3[SUP]rd[/SUP], 2005. There were performances by Christina Aguilera and Whitney Houston for a full house of guests of the rich and famous. The singers alone cost $3.6 million each to perform.
    2. Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum and Princess Salama ($44.5 million)
    The Arabs really know how to have a wedding party and especially the ruler of Dubai who married Princess Salama in 1981. The wedding earned a place in the Forbes list of “Billionaire Weddings”. A stadium was built just for the occasion to entertain 20,000 guests for 7 days of luxury.
    1. Vanisha Mittal &Amit Bhatia ($78 million)
    The Indians, however, outshined the Arabs on November 18[SUP]th[/SUP], 2004 when Vanisha Mittal &Amit Bhatia wed in what is recorded as the most expensive wedding in history. 1,000 guests from around the world attended after each had received a 20-page silver card to the event which included all the lavish details the entire venue that lasted for 5 days. The party took place at the finest chateau and garden in France, the 17[SUP]th[/SUP] century, Vaux le Vicomte. The bride, Vanisha Mittal, daughter to the steel tycoon Lakshmi Mittal and Amit Bhatia, the investment banker wed in sheer riches. A performance by Kylie Minogue the pop singer was the high-lighted attraction to the event. 100 different dishes were prepared by a top Calcutta Chef and the wine cost $1.5 million. The costs of everything else we’ll leave to your imagination!
    Weddings are a happy time for all, especially for the guests who were able to attend the top ten most expensive weddings in history. Of these wedding events, the real two questions are who is still together and who will be next to top the list? Some of the above are no longer a couple, some are together but lead separate lives so for some weddings are just a way to exposure to limelight……

    The issue here is not the wedding but "Leisure" and "Publicity" most of these fellows, wedding is nothing to them as compared to making the Headlines.

    "sisi" - inawakilisha nani? Zaidi ya asilimia 40 ya watanzania ( wanaokadiriwa kufikia 44,000,000) wanaishi chini ya dola moja (1,650/=) kwa siku!
