The average cost of a wedding in the United States is $25,200. Compared to these lavish bashes, this is purely chump change. From multiple designer gowns to outstanding venues, these couples have no problem throwing down some SERIOUS cash to make their dream day a reality!

Wendy El Khoury, former wedding planner and now editor of Wedded Wonderland, has witnessed the most luxurious and outrageous weddings in the world.

From Lebanon, Australia, Italy, New York to Beverly Hills these couples had budgets of millions upon millions of dollars.

Can you EVEN imagine?? Lets just all take a moment to dream…..


Even though most of us will never get the opportunity to play around with these kind of budgets… We LOVE to see the outlandish requests of these brides!
