I seem to be focusing on some absurd wealth extravangances so here is another. The royal wedding of William and Kate Middleton cost a reported $34,000,000 but here is the most expensive of all time:

Prince of Abu Dhabi Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan had a 20,000-seat stadium specially built for his 7 day wedding to Princess Salama. The couple got married in 1981. They swhould only be happy and healthy together.

This wedding cost $100 million! This was in 1981 so the cost today would probably be about double, a mere bag of shells as Jackie Gleason would say.

The sheikh visited every town in the emirate by horseback during that week, and fed them all.

During the ceremony, wedding gifts for his bride were delivered by 20 bejeweled camels.sheikh wedding
