Weddings give a lot of couples sticker shock. Renting a venue, catering, invitations, tux rentals, a wedding gown and everything else can seriously add up.
But you’re probably on the budget plan compared to these venues! Read on to learn about some of the most expensive wedding venues in the world — and all the perks they offer the lucky couples who can shell out for them.
Necker Island, in the British Virgin Islands, is a 74-acre property owned entirely by business magnate Sir Richard Branson. He’s turned the island into a miniature paradise — replete with a 10-bedroom villa in traditional Balinese style decorated with rare art from around the world.
The island’s hosted a number of weddings over the years — including Branson’s daughter’s ceremony — and the venue can hold up to 200 visitors. But be warned: you’re looking at a price tag of about $120,000 for exclusive access to this unusual exclusive tropical island!
This venue is nearly 100 years old and is one of the largest private residences in the world. Umaid Bhawan Palace is located in the Indian city of Jodhpur in the state of Rajasthan, and tradition says King Umaid Singh decided to build this extravagant, sprawling residence as a way to buoy the spirits of his people (and stimulate the local economy, no doubt) during a lengthy drought.
The building is an enchanting mixture of Eastern tradition and Western technology, and its unique style and history have made it a popular venue for weddings for the ultra-rich. With 64 rooms, you can host up to 750 of your family and friends on your special day… so long as you have $380,000 to spare.
This 11th-century Italian palace is filled with all the Old World charm you might expect: marble floors, antique furniture, paintings by world-renowned master artists and sprawling olive groves visible from panoramic balcony views. This clifftop retreat is conveniently located near several attractions, including Villa Rufolo, Amalfi Cathedral and Grotto dello Smeraldo.
This outstanding site hosts many weddings and parties, both in the garden and the building proper. But you get what you pay for: it costs a whopping $430,000 to host your wedding here. At least your guests will never forget their trip!
