We've lost count of the amount of times we've seen someone win the lotto and then finally get married - or at least propose to their significant other. It makes sense - having a wedding is a tremendously expensive affair these days, what with the venue, catering, flowers, music, transport, accommodation, not to mention the most important item of all - The Dress!
Most couples wait years these days before having their wedding ceremony, saving up painstakingly for what will undoubtedly be one of the most memorable, and costly days of their lives. No wonder you have to be a lotto winner in order to afford it! That's why if you're thinking of popping the question or tying the knot, perhaps a lotto ticket from GiantLottos.com should be your first buy. That way if you hit one of the many international jackpots on offer, you'll be able to afford a lavish wedding service, just like:
Why have just one special day when you can have eight? At least that's what Arun Nayar and Elizabeth Hurley did when they married in 2007. Rather than having just one ceremony, they splashed out on eight different events, celebrating across two different continents in Europe and Asia. At $10,000 per night for their accommodation in the Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur, we hope they made every last second of their stay count!
If you're one of the richest men in the world, you make sure everyone knows it with a wedding ceremony to rival that of royalty. If you were in Palm Beach, Florida in 2005, you wouldn't have been able to miss these nuptials - not with 45 chefs, 10,000 flowers and a 200-lb cake in attendance. At least with guests like Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, Shaquille O'Neal and Rudolph Giuliani, you know you're getting some decent gifts!
It may not have had a happy ending, but the love story of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes definitely began with a fairytale wedding. Held in the Italian Odescalchi Castle in 2006, this Hollywood extravaganza was dressed by Armani, entertained by Boccelli, and made headlines with its $2 million reception for weeks afterwards.
Of course no list of lavish weddings would be complete without a mention of Charles and Diana, whose wedding still reigns supreme as the most expensive ceremony of all time. At an eye-watering $48 million (which works out to $110 million adjusted for today's inflation), the wedding was an extravagant affair by anyone's standards. But nothing less than the best is good enough for royalty, which is why the event included an audience of 3,500 at the ceremony, 120 each at the reception and a post-wedding breakfast, no less than 27 wedding cakes and a global audience of over 750 million. We wonder if the Queen signed the cheque?
We're not saying your own nuptials have to be along the lines of Charles and Diana's, but perhaps a few centrepieces and a band wouldn't go amiss? Luckily if you buy your lottery tickets from GiantLottos.com, you won't have to worry about squabbling with service providers - because you'll be able to afford the extravagant wedding you've always dreamed of!
