Elizabeth Taylor & Larry Fortensky
Legendary actress Elizabeth Taylor has infamously tied the knot seven times before she met her final husband, Larry Fortensky. Taylor’s final marriage to Fortensky cost a mere $2.5 million, which when adjusted for inflation, would equal around $4 million today. This amount is modest compared to other weddings on this list, but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t just as glamorous!
In 1991, Michael Jackson hosted the wedding at his own Neverland Ranch, in addition to acting as father of the bride. Taylor received a $25,000 pale yellow Valentino wedding dress as a gift from the designer. The wedding contained 160 high-profile guests such as Nancy Reagan, Liza Minelli, Eddie Murphy, and other people in the entertainment industry. The wedding had security staffed with at least 100 guards and a former Israeli army officer, but that didn’t stop paparazzi from parachuting into the wedding and landing just 20 feet away from the bride and groom!
