30 Of The Most Expensive Weddings in the World

By Shannon

According to Business Insider, the average cost of an American wedding in 2018 is $33,391. Yikes.

For some people, that’s an entire year’s salary blown in just one day. It’s enough to make some people want to elope, and put that money towards a down-payment on a house, instead. But for the rich and powerful people in the world, weddings that cost tens of thousands of dollars would never be lavish enough for their taste.

Get ready to clutch your pearls, because the cost of these 30 luxury weddings will knock your socks off. We still start with the “cheap” six-figure weddings- all the way up to ceremonies that cost over $100 million.

30. Heart Evangelista and Chiz Escudero

Heart Evangelista is a socialite from the Phillipines who is one of the many women that inspired the author of Crazy Rich Asians. Her husband, Chiz Escudero, is a senator. Their wedding was a gorgeous ceremony on Balesin Island. The minimum cost for running a wedding on Balesin is 9 million pesos, or $115,000. Add on the designer gown, guest accommodations, custom-made sails to boats on the water, fireworks, and walls upon walls of flowers, their wedding would have easily cost at least one million dollars, if not more.
