From billionaire businessmen and their families to the high-brow royals across the pond, the most expensive weddings of all time are nothing short of amazing, while at the same time ridiculously overpriced.

Prince William’s and Kate Middleton’s wedding was highly anticipated and was as publicized as much as you’d expect a royal wedding to be. An estimated 2 billion people all around the world watched the grand wedding; also termed “The Wedding of The Century”. Although nowhere near as expensive as the wedding of his parents, Charles and Diana, Prince William’s wedding to Kate Middleton still cost a pretty penny at approximately $34 million. Held in London’s Westminster Abbey in 2011, the spouses-to-be enjoyed $800,000 worth of flowers, $600,000 wedding reception and $80,000 wedding cake. Middleton’s wedding dress was also a huge expense, costing more than $400,000. However, the greatest expense of all may have been security, which is estimated to have cost around $32 million.
