Revealed: the 20 most expensive celebrity weddings

Written by Katie Byrne

New research has estimated how much our favourite A-list couples have spent on saying 'I do'...



A new study has estimated how much our favourite celebrity couples have spent on their weddings - with Justin Timberlake and Jessical Biels' 2012 nuptials topping the list.

The research, conducted by Bidvine, asked experts across the bridal industry - including planners, designers and florists - to share their estimates as to how much recent (and iconic) celebrity nuptials cost.

The estimates include neither honeymoons nor security, with Bidvine explaining that 'otherwise, the estimated £24 million spent on security for Prince William’s wedding to Kate Middleton would have disproportionately affected the table'.

Well, indeed!

The study also estimated how much the typical celeb couple would spend on wedding staples, such as venue hire and flowers. According to the research, a venue would typically set them back £104,119; flowers would cost around £39,000; the cake would be £3,566; the dress would cost around £145,403; and the wedding breakfast would cost upwards of £30k.
