Ostentatious and opulent weddings throughout history

There have been many ostentatious and opulent weddings throughout history, so it is difficult to determine which one was the most extravagant. However, here are some weddings that have been considered as the most luxurious:


  1. Wedding of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum and Princess Salama: The wedding of the current ruler of Dubai, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, and Princess Salama in 1981, is considered one of the most expensive weddings in history. An estimated $100 million was spent on the ceremony.

  2. Wedding of Vanisha Mittal and Amit Bhatia: The daughter of Indian steel magnate Lakshmi Mittal, Vanisha Mittal, married Amit Bhatia in France in 2004. The wedding lasted for six days and is estimated to have cost $60 million.

  3. Wedding of Lady Diana Spencer and Prince Charles: The wedding of Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer in 1981 was one of the most costly royal weddings in history. It is estimated that around $110 million was spent on the ceremony and reception.

  4. Wedding of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West: Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's wedding in 2014 was an ostentatious event that took place at the Palace of Versailles in France. It is estimated that around $2.8 million was spent on the ceremony and reception.

It is worth noting that the opulence and cost of a wedding do not necessarily guarantee a lasting or happy marriage, and that often simplicity and intimacy are what really matter in a wedding ceremony.
