There is nothing I love more than a good celeb gossip story than an extravagant celebrity wedding. I faithfully watched Don’t be Tardy for the Wedding with Kim Zolciak and Kory Biermann, Khloe and Lamar’s Wedding Special, one of my favorite couples LaLa and Carmelo on LaLa’s Full Court Life and of course Kim’s Fairytale Wedding with Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries. While all of these weddings were gorgeous and incredibly expensive, there are a few weddings that out spent them (with the exception of Kim and Kris whose wedding cost an estimated $10 million). Check out three of the most expensive celebrity weddings below.
Liza Minnelli and David Gest
This Oscar winning and producer duo spent an estimated $3.5 million on their 2002 nuptials in New York City. With Michael Jackson and Elizabeth Taylor standing next to them as Best Man and Maid of Honor, the couple and 500 of their closest friends and family feasted on a 12-tier wedding cake.
Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes
Unfortunately, these actors couldn’t make their off screen romance work, but in 2006 the couple spent an estimated $3.5 million for their big day. So what was included in that $3.5 million? 300 bottles of champagne and wine, a custom Armani gown for Katie, and 15th Century Roman Castle as the ceremony space.
