The Most Expensive Celebrity Weddings

expensive-celebrity-weddings Celebrities are known for doing everything bigger, including their weddings. While the average American will spend $25,000 on their wedding, for these celebs that wouldn't even cover the flowers. From pop star performances to 17th-century castle locales, celebrities do not spare a single expense. For a majority of these celebs, spending millions on a wedding did not necessarily mean a happy ending. Kim Kardashian's 72 day wedding cost her a reported $10 million, while Paul McCartney's $3 million wedding ended up costing him over $40 million to divorce his then wife Heather Mills. However, there are some celebs whose wedding was well worth the cost, such as David and Victoria Beckham and Prince William and Kate Middleton. Check out our gallery below for some of the most extravagant celebrity weddings ever! Prince William and Catherine Middleton
