Sure, George Clooney's wedding to international human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin was a classy affair, but the levels of opulence have nothing on some ridiculously extravagant celebrity weddings.

They might not all be the most tasteful displays in the world, but I'm sure guests would be forgetting any of these noxiously expensive nuptials in a hurry.

It's just a shame that all but one are divorced now!

Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes

This might be a wedding to remember for all the wrong reasons now, but at the time Tom Cruise and Katie Holme's wedding was ridiculously opulent.

The pair tied the knot in a stunning 15th century Italian castle and their ceremony reportedly cost over three million dollars.

Alas, Lord Xenu pulled the pair apart after 5 years of marriage... Or whatever they call it in Scientology.

So ladies, remember that jumping up and down on a sofa on national TV like your on bath salts and terrifying Oprah does not mean true love. An important lesson for us all.


Liza Minnelli and David Gest

Who needs taste and refinement when your cake is THIS BIG?!

When Liza Minnelli married David Guest in 2002, the pair spent a whopping 4.2 million on their big day, but it wasn't just the price tag that was impressive.

Minnelli and Guest had Michael Jackson and Elizabeth Taylor as the Best Man and Maid of Honor to boot.

Although their wedding favors read "Liza and David 4 Ever" (so down with the kids!), this ill fated couple split just 16 months later.


Elizabeth Hurley and Arun Nayar

Elizabeth Hurley and her ex-husband Arun Nayar weren't content to get married just once.

The multi-cultural couple had an Indian and a British wedding and jetted guests across the globe to both of them!

Elizabeth Hurley reportedly had a staggering 16 wedding dresses throughout both of these lavish occasions.

Unfortunately, it wasn't meant to be and this pair split in 2011 after 4 years together.


Christina Aguilera and Jordan Bratman

The ever classy and understated Christina Aguilera spent $2 million on her Napa Valley wedding to her music producer husband.

The traditional Jewish wedding naturally got a lot more X-Tina when it came to the reception party.

The winter themed after party saw Christina ditch her 80 thousand dollar wedding dress for something a little more comfortable.

Who said money can't buy you taste, eh?

Needless to say, this pair split in 2010 after 5 years of wedded bliss.


Kim Kardashian and Kanye West

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West had one of the most over the top weddings imaginable when they tied the knot earlier this year.

The lavish ceremony cost an eye-watering 2.8 million dollars but shipping guests to both Italy and France and paying for seven luxury hotels cost over 37 million.

Around 200 guest came to see the two egos merge into one during these narcissistic nupitals, but unfortunately Bey and Jay had better things to do.

Naturally, North West was delighted as usual.
