George Clooney got married in Italy and thanks to an exclusive with People magazine, we now know how much the whole thing cost. Personally, I think it’s kind of staggering and ridiculous, but the number could be worse. And what is that number? According to People,
At the end of the day, George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin‘s three-day wedding weekend, including their intimate Sept. 27 ceremony at the Aman Canal Grande resort, cost about $1.6 million, or a million British pounds, PEOPLE has learned.
Um, is that not a huge yikes to anyone else? $1.6 million? For a wedding? Look, it’s their money and they can do whatever they want with it, but that doesn’t mean I’m not allowed to be shocked. How naive am I, to be shocked by something like this, right? I mean, what the hell did I think it was gonna cost, $200?
Anyway here’s some additional info about the costs:
Additional reports claiming Alamuddin’s family footed the bill for the wedding weekend – which included several fetes at the matrimonial home base, the Belmond Hotel Cipriani – are also inaccurate, PEOPLE has confirmed.
So who paid for it then? Was it all George? Both of them?
How much did YOUR wedding cost? Person with the cheapest wedding wins a prize — my total admiration.
