Let's see some high-end weddings that have made history with the bills:

The Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi is synonymous with extravagance. In 1981, when he married Princess Salama, a 20,000-seat stadium was built for a week of festivities. When adjusted for inflation, the Sheikh's wedding is estimated at $100 million.
