Michael Jordan and the most over-the-top celebrity weddings

michael jordan weddingYou could feed a small country with the amount that Michael Jordan paid for his wedding to Cuban-American model Yvette Prieto in Palm Beach, Fla. over the weekend.

With the largest tent ever constructed for a wedding reception, Jordan spent $10 million of his personal fortune to do it up big (which is an understatement). Prieto wore a French silk voile corseted sheer sheath gown by J’Aton Couture, in an ecru palette with accents of flesh tones and handmade silk lace created especially for her. The dress was also enhanced with Swarovski crystals and had a cathedral train finished in the lace, with accents of a peacock feather design.

The ceremony was followed by a reception at the Bear’s Club in Jupiter, where singers K’Jon, Robin Thicke and Usher entertained the guests, including Tiger Woods, who was snapped walking into the chapel. And we haven’t even gotten to the wedding cake, the desert, the candles, the decorations, etc.

But I digress.

As much as MJ forked over for his nuptials, Jordan’s ultra-expensive wedding, however, pales in comparison to some of the celebrities on this list, believe it or not. Take a look at some of the most over the top weddings.
