Sometimes there’s nothing better than seeing a grandiose movie wedding, or watching your two favourite TV characters finally tie the knot. Weddings come in all shapes and sizes, but what kind of bride are you?
If you’re feeling a little on edge about the cost of a wedding, that’s totally normal! Couples can sometimes get hooked on prices and compromising on areas of their wedding that actually they’d love to include such as their dream venue. These pointers will ensure you stay in budget, keep calm during the planning process and find ways of incorporating everything you want into your wedding day.
When well-known and prominent personalities get married, you can expect a grandiose wedding. They are going to splash the cash to have a day that they will always remember. Here are 11 of the most lavish weddings, with their approximate costs, that the world has ever seen.

For couples choosing to celebrate their nuptials under canvas, there are an increasing number of options available. From stretch tents to big tops, yurts to Bedouin tents, there is something for every theme and budget. Beautiful in any landscape, tipis provide a warm and atmospheric backdrop to any styling theme – from a traditional English Country wedding in the grounds of a stately home, to an earthy festival wedding in a wildflower meadow. The tipis can be attached and configured flexibly dependent of the size of the wedding and site, comfortably seating up to 1000 guests. An extensive range of furnishings and lighting are available – including open fires to keep the tipis warm and cosy! Second time winners of The Wedding Industry Award for Best Marquee Hire Provider, World Inspired Tents offer a range of Nordic inspired tipis.
Romantic honeymoons can be slightly different depending on your preferences. One couples idea of romance can be walks on a deserted island, and the other a joint bungee jump off a bridge in New Zealand.
For seclusion and solitude then places like Mauritius and the Maldives are a haven for private beaches, romantic settings and beautiful surroundings. Think about yourself walking down the beach hand in hand along a breath-taking coastline, the clear blue waters lapping at your feet, before heading back to your honeymoon villa to watch the sunset.
From the first step to the last dance, your wedding shoes make a huge impact on how comfortable you are throughout your special day. Some brides opt for skyscraper heels for a glamorous edge to their look, while others choose sandals for warm summer weddings; but in the quest for complete comfort and style, more and more brides-to-be are taking the alternative route and bringing a casual
element to their traditionally formal wedding attire.
Centuries ago, European aristocrats would honour their wedding guests with small trinket boxes made of crystal, porcelain or even jewel encrusted gold & silver. Known as “bonbonnieres”, these beautiful little boxes would contain sweet confections considered as symbols of wealth and royalty.
Weddings were thought to be lucky – and by giving bonbonnieres, or wedding favours as they are now known, the happy couple were seen to be passing some of their good fortune onto their guests. But sugar was a precious commodity few could afford so many bridal couples would offer their guests tokens such as love knots made from ribbon and lace. Others would create little embroidered linen bags filled with plain almonds. Typically five – which were said to represent; health, wealth, happiness, fertility & longevity.
