When you spend USD $78 MILLION on your wedding can you divorce with a straight face? I think not. I was going through the web and found this rather ludicrous incredulousness that I had to post. Did this billionaire really spend this much money on his daughter’s wedding? Did he have the son in law (who works for him, btw) sign a prenup? What does he get if there is a divorce when you spend $78 million on a wedding? Is it love? Or does Bhatia stay out of a sense of obligation?
The record-holder for the world’s most expensive wedding to date is the nuptials of Vanisha Mittal (daughter of billionaire Lakshmi Mittal) and investment banker Amit Bhatia. This wedding took place at Vaux le Vicomte, a 17th-century chateau in France, in 2004. The elaborate, outrageous wedding has been honored by Forbes’ Magazine as one of the most expensive weddings, and currently ranks in the Guinness Book of World Records for the most expensive wedding ever recorded, with $78 million spent. The wedding went on for five days, and included extravagances such as invitations sent out in a 20 page silver book, 100 different dishes prepared by a top Calcutta chef, a wine tab of $1.5 million, and 1000 guests on hand to witness the world’s most expensive wedding ceremony ever. http://www.elistmania.com/juice/10_most_expensive_weddings/
