Although I’m married, I never had a wedding. Being a frugilista is in my DNA, and even though I was madly in love with my husband, I wanted to use the thousands of dollars I’d spend on a wedding on more important life matters instead. Rather than splurge on a Vera Wang dress and centerpieces that probably cost more than my monthly car payment, my husband and I instead proclaimed our love by traveling on two honeymoons to Thailand and Australia (traveling is also in our DNA) and put the rest of our money towards a down payment on our house. Sometimes, I kind of wonder what my daughter will think when she’ll never see photos of her mother in a beautiful white dress, but at least I have the ones with the koala bears to show her instead.
As we all know, celebrities aren’t like us regular people, and when it comes to extravagant and expensive weddings, they know how to put on a show – or two!
Kanye West, who not too long ago proposed to Kim Kardashian at a ballpark in San Francisco, has big plans for the couple’s upcoming nuptials. Kanye says he wants to marry his baby mama at Versailles Castle, right outside of Paris, France. Makes sense, considering this couple is always in Paris, right? Something tells me that their wedding might definitely take the cake when it comes to the most expensive and extravagant wedding of all time! I mean, the Kardashians do have a lot of experience when it comes to planning weddings!
