Love doesn’t come cheap! And neither does a weekend wedding along the romantic canals of Venice, apparently.
As People reports, George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin’s lavish star-studded wedding set them back a cool 1.6 million (USD).
It has been previously reported that the weekend nuptials cost anywhere from $5 million all the way to $13 million, People can also confirm that expenses did not surmount 1 million British pounds. As far as a-list celebrity weddings go, the expenses seem rather average. Couples Elton John and David Furnish, Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones, and Madonna and Guy Ritchie, each forked over $1.5 million to make the ultimate commitment.
And on top of the soaring budgets, People can also dispel another widespread rumour: the three-day wedding celebration, which included a Saturday evening ceremony at the historic Aman Canal Grande hotel followed by a civil ceremony two days later, was not paid for by the bride’s parents.
