Celebrity weddings are full-on productions

Getting married costs money – even a small, intimate affair can set a couple back thousands!

When it comes to celebrity weddings, they have no problem spending what an average couple would spend on their entire wedding, on something like their flowers or champagne. They want to flash their cash and have the very best of everything.

What’s funny (and rather sad at the same time) is that these fancy, expensive weddings often end in divorce not long after.

When Katie Holmes married Tom Cruise, no expense was spared. The venue was an Italian castle, Andrea Boccelli performed and the entire bridal party wore Armani. The bill? $2 Million (R25 Million)! And, was it a happily-ever-after for TomKat? Nope. We all know how that fairytale ended.

Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel also had an ‘Italian wedding’ which reportedly cost $6.5 Million (R84 Million). Fortunately this gorgeous couple are still together and seem as happy as ever.
