Weddings have transformed as time has gone on. What was once a a simple, beautiful ceremony to join two people in matrimony, is now a lavish, over-the-top circus. Everyone wants to outdo everyone else’s weddings, spending stacks on stacks to do so. And I love it.
Chinese Actress Angela Yeung, or “Angelababy” was looking to have the wedding of the millennium. For her recent nuptials to Huang Xiaoming (just try pronouncing that), the two spent a whopping $31 million dollars. For comparison, Kim and Kanye’s “outrageous” wedding was less than half of that, at $12 million. Apparently the wedding was the most lavish weddings in China’s history. Oh the things we do for love, right?
How does one even spend $31 million?! Apparently easily. And it looks a little something like this:
A five and a half carat rock weighing down her finger at $1.5 million. I’m guessing Huang didn’t go to Jared’s.
A custom Elie Saab gown.
Or two. But not for the wedding. No, this dress was reserved for the pre-wedding photoshoot in Paris.
For the big day, the bride wore instead a custom long sleeved Dior gown. Sorry, Elie.
Oh you know, just 115 feet of silk, organza, and tulle covered in nearly 100 hand-cut roses made out of Chantilly lace. It’s whatever. Just threw it on.
A lil’ chapel to hold 2,000 of their closest friends.
And some Hunger Games capitol realness with hologram castles projected on the walls. Romance.
Of course, every bride knows you can’t get married without a ten foot tall cake! Oh look! A carousel! Quaint.
Ain’t love grand? Or in this case, I guess love is millions..
