5 million dollars on a wedding? WHAT?
AND her response, ” I’m not spoiled, I’m privileged, I think there’s a difference.”
I cannot even imagine that much money to blow. Her music of the night included Alishia Keyes, the black eyed peas, and a 16 string quartet, while they dined on $6,500 per bottle of wine.

Wouldn’t you love to go completeley over the top if it were in the budget, though? If I could afford such a lavish wedding, I’d totally be on for one! If I were raised priviledged, I’m not sure I’d be appreciating our tiny DIY wedding experience as much. And I love what we’re doing to bits. But if I could afford to transform an entire venue into Wonderland and treat my guests like royalty, I definitely would!

Thats crazy, I couldn’t even imagine having that kind of wedding.

It kind of makes me feel sick to think of people spending millions on one day, and moving into a 90 million dollar house afterwards. And asking guests to donate to charity instead of gifts. How about having a crazy extravagant wedding for 1 million, and using the other 4 mill to buid some schools in Africa, or fund immunisation programs in poverty stricken countries?

@Anniebo: If they have the means then why not. And Petra Ecclestone is right – just because someone has the means doesn’t mean that they are spoiled. A poor child can be spoiled just as much as a rich child. Being spoiled has nthing to do with the amount of money someone has but how they behave.

Damn that must have been one hell of a party.

@CrystalBlackheart: But for real? Who needs to drink $6500 wine? I am a firm believer that there is nothing wrong with wealth, but it is totally how you use it. Bill Gates is one of the richest men on the planet and also, gives the most to his own and other charitable funds. Much has been given, much will be required and all that…

I am on the fence about these extravagent parties. My initial reaction is that’s horrible to blow that much money on a party , basicly throwing their noses up at the people that are starving and living on the streets. And a wedding should be about the couple saying “I do” not about throwing the biggest party as a social status thing….. It seems to me it’s a competition in the highest social circles, Who had the most lavish wedding?
But then again, loads of money usually changes people and their perspective. I can’t say if I was a multi millionaire I wouldn’t have a famous band play at my wedding or spend 6 figures on a dress.. Money is thought about differently when there is no budget.
@CrystalBlackheart: Well I will agree to disagree with you, we have different opinions on what a spoiled person is.

If she has the money to afford a wedding like that, then go for it! I wish I was invited 🙂
