Celebrities are no strangers to lavish and extremely costly weddings. They’ve been known to spend upwards of millions of dollars on the venue, dress and jewels, and then their wedding photos get plastered all over celebrity and gossip magazines. As the wedding season wound itself down, there was still time for a few October weddings, which included the exceptionally extravagant affair celebrating the nuptials of Angelababy and Huang Xiaoming. They spent around $31 million for their nuptials! That is more than Kim Kardashian-West and Kanye West’s wedding in 2014!
In case you haven’t heard of her, Angelababy, a play off her English name and nickname, is a model, actress and singer and has arguably the number one most desirable face in all of Asia. She had a brief role in Hitman: Agent 47 and will play a character named Rain in Independence Day: Resurgence. She’s also been dubbed the “Kim Kardashian of China” by Western media outlets.
Huang Xiaoming is her husband and he’s no slouch either when it comes to the acting game. His most notable roles on TV were Return of the Condor Heroes and Shanghai Bund, both of which were critically acclaimed successes in China.
Together they form a celebrity power couple that may have no equal in the entire world. They spent $31 million on the wedding, that’s almost three “Kimye” weddings. What sort of wedding does that kind of money actually get you?
▼ Pre-wedding photos in Paris with Angelababy wearing Elie Saab dresses
▼ Booking the Shanghai Exhibition Center and inviting 2,000 guests
▼ A rotating carousel cake
▼ A custom handmade Christian Dior dress that took five months to make
We can only imagine what else was prepared for their special day, which also involved a $1.5 million ring and special gift bags for guests that included mobile phones. A wedding like this is something many of us wouldn’t even dream of! The average person usually has something simple and starts sweating bullets if the number $31,000 gets thrown around, let alone $31 million. But that is the benefit, or detriment, of being a celebrity couple and needing to invite 2,000 of your closest friends to your wedding.
