Ever wonder where the most expensive weddings are held? We have selected 5 to share from the world’s five most expensive wedding locations and these are not just pretty and luxurious, but venues with unique offerings for various tastes. Some very famous people have tied the knot at these venues and have had the most expensive weddings.
1. Oberoi Udaivilas
Believe it or not, the first on our list is not in the United States nor in a world super power nation. One of the most luxurious wedding venues in the world is jewel of the East. The Oberoi Udaivilas is consistently ranked as the top hotel in India and Asia. This 5-star resort offers incredibly lavish suites and its 450 hand-stone columns and domes made of gold and white marble make for truly spectacular wedding photos. The hotel will cost you around $8,000 per night.
2. One & Only Reethi Rah Resort
Next we head to the Maldives, where the One & Only Reethi Rah Resort sits pretty on a 109-acre island with a picturesque backdrop. The wedding photo opportunity will cost you a pretty penny, but the resort’s private hideaways offer the chance for the wedding and reception of a lifetime. Booking this resort for your big day costs about $7,000 a night.
3. Little Palm Island Resort & Spa
If you have a dream of owning your own private island, you can do so for a few days while you hold your wedding at Little Palm Island Resort & Spa in Key West, Florida. Only accessible by sea plane or ferry, you will feel like you’re lost on a desert island on a romantic adventure. This highly intimate location only allows a maximum of 60 guests and wedding packages start at $175,000.
4. New York Public Library
The New York Public Library in Manhattan, New York is not only a historic landmark with incredible marble interiors and captivating ceilings, but a statement venue ever since Sex in the City put it in the limelight with Carrie Bradshaw’s wedding. This is an impressive venue that rents starting at $50,000. The high ceilings and marble interiors are well worth it, but it is nearly impossible to book and you must be willing to fork over the money and book in advance to make your dreams come true. By the way, the Library only allows civil wedding ceremonies and a professional wedding planner is required.
5. Chateaux Vaux-le-Vicomte
Let’s head to Europe for our final choice, and what better place than a French château that Marie Antoinette may have once stayed in? Chateaux Vaux-le-Vicomte in Maincy, France is a 17th century palace located on 1,200 acres of beautiful landscaped park which is available for a maximum of five hours at a time. The chateau has perfectly manicured gardens for you to walk down the aisle through, or if you’re looking to host an indoor wedding fit for Louis the 14th himself, perhaps you would prefer to hold the ceremony in one of the Chateaux’s ballrooms complete with intricate architecture, furniture, and 200 candles. The ballroom overlooks the formal gardens and there must be a minimum of 50 people in attendance to book. This venue fit for an aristocratic queen and king will set you back about $60,000.
