‘Kim Kardashian of China’ Spends $43 Million On Wedding
Weddings are pricey as hell if you and bae aren’t getting married at the courthouse. A recent study from The Knot found that the average wedding now costs a little over $31,000. But when money ain’t a thang, $31,000 is napkin money.
A singer/actress named Angelababy, dubbed the Kim Kardashian of China, got hitched a few days ago in a lavish ceremony that reportedly cost $43 million and included three outfit changes and a wedding cake taller than the couple!
The over-the-top affair took place at the Shanghai Exhibition Center, a 200,000 square foot space, with 2,000 of the couple’s closest friends in attendance. The venue was decorated in pinks and purples, with the hall transformed into a romantic fairytale set straight out of a movie. Some of those theatrics included a castle projected via hologram and lights displayed in the shapes of stain-glass windows. Funny enough, just like the Wests, a giant wall of white flowers was erected for photo opps.
Security guards (nearly 200 of them) watched over the red envelopes, a traditional monetary gift given during special occasions, while luxury cars including Ferraris and Rolls Royces idled outside. If the multiple-course meal didn’t fill everyone up, the cake, taller than the bride and groom with a rotating carousel as one of the many layers, certainly did.
It took five months and two fittings to create the wedding gown, from Angelababy’s conception translated onto paper by a pattern maker to the finishing touches. The piece required nearly 115 feet of satin organza, 170 feet of tulle crafted into seven skirt layers, and a 10-foot-long train. Nearly a hundred flower bouquets of Chantilly lace were cut and stitched by hand on the fabric. Each rose is composed of seven layers of muslin, colored pink using an airbrush. Xiaoming wore a made-to-measure Tom Ford tuxedo.
Hit the flip for the pictures. If you had it like that, would YOU splurge on a $43 million wedding?
