As if Marie-Chantal Miller’s life wasn’t already a fairytale, things got even better for her when she wed the Crown Prince of Greece. And if marrying a prince wasn’t enough, throw in a $200 million dowry from her billionaire father. The wedding was an over-the-top production (well, duh,) that cost about $7 million.
The couple held the nuptials at St. Sophia’s Cathedral in London and invited almost 1,500 people. Guests enjoyed over 300 wedding cakes, one of which was 8 tiers. The bride-to-be wore a gorgeous, flowing white Valentino dress that trailed behind her for 15 feet and cost over $230,000. The dress, which was a combination of lace, silk, and pearls, reportedly took 25 people 4 months to make.
Sons of Sahara chief Subrata Roy, Seemanto Roy and Sushanto Roy, got married in a lavish double wedding ceremony that lasted for 4 days. Seemanto tied the knot with actress Chandni Singh Toor, while Sushanto wed Richa Ahuja, the daughter of a wealthy businessman.
Subrata Roy, who has an estimated net worth of over $5 billion, spared no expenses for the over-the-top celebration. Apparently, he dropped nearly $65 million on each son – so he came close to spending $130 million for the entire event. Tens of thousands of guests were in attendance to eat delicious multinational cuisine and listen to the British Symphony Orchestra play on stage.
Making Taiwanese History
Jay Chou is a popular actor in Taiwan, and he’s also on the rise in the United States. Chou has appeared in some blockbuster hits like "Now You See Me 2." His bride, Hanna Quinlivan, is a big Taiwanese star, too, so it should come as no surprise that they’ve made the list.
The couple threw an over-the-top ceremony at the Selby Abbey in North Yorkshire. The bride wore an elegant, white lace gown by Mikael Derderian, and the groom wore a black Alexander McQueen suit with gold details. Overall, the young stars reportedly dropped around $23 million in New Taiwan money, which equals close to $1 million US dollars. The ceremony made history as the most lavish in the history of the country.
Princess Victoria and Daniel Westling
Victoria, the Crown Princess of Sweden, married former personal trainer, Daniel Westling, in a beautiful wedding ceremony that took place in Stockholm Cathedral in 2010. That’s right, Princess Victoria had the hots for her fitness instructor and decided to put a ring on it, much to the dismay of her father, the King of Sweden. Good for her for following her heart, anyway!
An impressive 250,000 guests gathered in the Cathedral to witness the ceremony, which included the royal families from all over the world. The Queen of the Netherlands attended, along with the Prince and Princess of Jordan and The Queen of Denmark. Princess Victoria wore an exquisite off-the-shoulder Pär Engsheden dress and a crown of cameos – the same one that her mother, the Queen, wore on her wedding day.
Eddie Murphy Marries Nicole Mitchell
Hollywood funnyman Eddie Murphy married former model Nicole Mitchell back in 1993, at the Plaza Hotel in New York City. About 500 guests showed up for the event, including hotel owner Donald Trump and music executive Russell Simmons. The actor reportedly dropped nearly $1.5 million, which was pretty expensive for the early ’90s!
The bride wore a gorgeous white lace gown that was strewn with crystals and pearls and had a train that trailed behind her by 12 feet. She accessorized with a matching, classic veil. The dress alone cost a small fortune at $40,000. Guests enjoyed a lavish dinner and champagne in the Palm Court, followed by $25,000 worth of cake. All of the flowers, that filled the ballroom during the ceremony, were donated to a local hospital after the celebration.
