I think it’s fair to say that we love a celebrity wedding as much as the next person, especially ones as lavish as the top dollar events we’re about to discuss. Maybe it’s because we love living vicariously through them, or maybe it’s because we love how over the top and unnecessary they are… either way we 100% love them!
Kicking off our love affair are Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. With the pair being as extravagant as they are, this was bound to be an over the top glamorous event, I mean come on… did you see that engagement?! Hiring out a full stadium, having a 150 piece orchestra play AND making sure all her nearest and dearest flew out to be with them for the special evening, only Kanye ey! Anyway, moving back on to the wedding of the year. Taking place in Forte di Belvedere in Florence, the pair tied the knot in front of their closes family and friends earlier this year. Kim looked stunning in a $2 million Givenchy dress… TWO MILLION! It was a beauty though, so we guess she can be forgiven. Personally we think the pairs daughter North West stole the show though, those cheeks! We’ll give them a 10/10 for venue, guests, attire and music (dream wedding alert).
The infamous basketball player Michael Jordan and his model wife Yvette Prieto are next up on our list of lavish weddings. Costing an estimated $10 million we think it’s safe to say Michael didn’t wants a low key wedding the second time around. The couple wed in Palm Beach, Florida in April ’13 in front of 300 guests, including Tiger Woods, Spike Lee and the Charlotte Bobcats owner’s team mates, just a few of the celeb world’s finest then! With musicians such as Usher, K’Jon and Robin thicke performing at their evening event, it shows it pays to have friends in high places… what do we have to do to get Usher at our wedding?!!
Serenading his wife with a personalised love song whilst playing the guitar as his bride walked down the aisle? Surely you know exactly who we’re talking about? Justin Timberlake, of course! Who else is as romantic as this guy? Although the former NSYNC super fan inside us is secretly heart broken, we couldn’t be happier for him and Jessica Biel. After 5 years of dating the couple finally tied the knot in a rather lavish ceremony in Italy in 2012.
The day cost an estimated $6.5 million and welcomes a pack of star studded guests such as Jimmy Fallon, Timbaland and Beverley Mitchell, not that we would expect anything less.
The bride wore a custom made petal pink Giambattista Valli Haute Couture gown and her groom sported a Tom Ford tux that he help design, bravo Justin and Jessica, both looking every bit sophisticated and glamorous for the big day.
When we think of the Delevingne family, we don’t think of half measures and we weren’t disappointed when it came to Poppy’s wedding. Marrying her long term love James Cook in May this year, the couple enjoyed not one but two ceremonies, we wouldn’t expect any less… would you? Kicking off the first celebration on her home turf in London, Poppy and James first wed in London’s St Pauls Church with a reception at Kensington Garden Palace to follow. After the initial ceremony, the couple decided that they would take the wedding affair abroad to Morocco, where they enjoyed a second weddings, a little more bohemian than the first. With celeb guests such as Sienna Miller, Georgia May Jagger and Alexa Chung on the guest list as well as royalty, Princess Beatrice attending, it wasn’t one to be missed in the start studded world.
