The Most Expensive Wedding Belongs To A Princess And Costs $110 Million!

Most people dream of having a fairytale wedding but as far as fairy tales go, such ceremonies are out of the grasp for most people. This is due to the high cost of holding such an event but to the few who can afford it, their special days have remained etched in history. The wedding that takes the cake for being the most expensive wedding in recent history is arguably Lady Diana and Prince Charles’.

Done in 1981, the ceremony cost an estimated $48 million which, when adjusted for inflation, today would be a mind blowing $110 million. Dubbed ‘‘The Wedding of the Century, ’’the British monarch put on an impressive display for the whole world as they welcomed their stunning new member who also happened to be a preschool teacher, Diana Spencer. She was later to become a global icon before her abrupt demise in 1997.

The wedding took place at St Paul’s Cathedral and was presided over by the Most Reverend Robert Runcie and the Very Reverend Alan Webster. It was reported that close to a billion people from around the world tuned in to see or hear the ceremony through their TVs and radios.

Diana wore a $13000 dress with a 25-foot train made of ivory taffeta and lace. There were 27 cakes in total, and the main cake took over 3 months to prepare. The main cake also had a backup cake in case there was a mishap. Sadly though, the fairy tale wedding didn’t have a happy ending as the couple separated in 1992 before divorcing in 1996.
