The Biggest Weddings Of The Century

(That Actually Did Happen)

Some weddings are just remarkably memorable. From the dress to the jewellery, they will forever be an iconic part of history. Here are three of the biggest weddings of the century that became the talk of the town.

The Royal Wedding – Prince William and Kate Middleton
Kate Middleton is one of the most influential people in Britain and across the world. Her wedding to Prince William was one of the most remarkable events in 2011.
The cost of her dress was £250,000, consisting of lace with silk tulle, satin and gazer. The dress was designed by Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen's London headquarters. Furthermore, Kate’s tiara cost more than £200k alone!
When Prince William had proposed to Kate Middleton in 2010, he did so with a ring that had belonged to his mother, Princess Diana. The diamond ring was crafted out of 18-carat white gold with a 12-carat oval sapphire surrounded by 14 brilliant diamonds.

Kim Kardashian & Kanye West
Kanye West and Kim Kardashian got married in Florence at Forte di Belvedere. The extravagance of their wedding is something we have never seen before. According to an insider, Kanye spent $3 million on flowers alone!
This lavish affair is what we call a Wedding of the Century. But not only did it cost the couple millions, but it also cost them their relationship with friends and family. Apparently, they had not invited any of their family members and close friends.
The jewellery that Kim wore on her wedding day had grabbed the world's attention. She wore a diamond tiara studded with 1,350 diamonds weighing 11 carats and a 16-carat diamond engagement ring.Apart from these, she also wore matching earrings, necklaces and bracelets designed by Lorraine Schwartz worth $2 million. 

Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie
When it comes to weddings, celebrities are not afraid of splurging. While regular folks spend an average of $30,000 on weddings in the US, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt spent $240 million for their wedding in 2014. The couple's extravagant nuptials were held at Château Miraval in Correns, France – a property they bought for €50 million back in 2012. The estate features a vineyard and spans over 1,000 acres – an area larger than Monaco and almost as big as Luxembourg!
Angelina wore a stunning white gown designed by the fashion house of Christian Dior. She wore jewellery from Van Cleef & Arpels, including a diamond engagement ring with four emerald baguette sides set in platinum.
