I've been engaged since November, and I still haven't made any concrete plans (but I do have the song for our first dance sorted. Score.). A lot of it is to do with laziness, most of it is down to indecisiveness, but there is a factor of weighing up what we want to do and what we can afford.
If I had money, I would hire a wedding planner, and that would be the end of it. I would suggest taking over a cool Mansion House for the entire weekend, and I would happily sit in my own boudoir while she/he brings me wedding dresses to try. Same goes for champagne.
I think every bride-to-be imagines what kind of wedding they might throw with a bottomless budget. It may still be a small intimate affair, but with caviar and, like, Rolexes. Or it could be a humongous bash with Jennifer Lopez, Enrique Iglesias and Sting as the entertainment, a cake the height of the room, and a custom-made Elie Saab couture wedding gown covered in crystals.
Like Khadija Uzhakhovs.
The 20-year-old student has just married heir to a Russian oil fortune, Said Gutseriev. Their actual billion dollar wedding is the talk of Instagram. So, without further ado, take a look at a fairytale wedding come to life. And don't forget to let us know if you think it looks worth it...
Oh, it’s just Sting, shooting the breeze in the flower covered ballroom.
And there’s Jennifer Lopez herself.
So... is it everything you'd imagined it to be?
