Some celebrity weddings are a huge spectacle, while others are fairly low-key. Many of them, though, cost more money than you could ever dream of spending on one party. While the average cost of a wedding is about $35,000, celebrities often spend multiple millions when they tie the knot. 

Here's a peek at what celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Chrissy Teigen, and Kate Middleton actually budgeted for their weddings. Warning: It might cause a mild heart attack.

Madonna and Guy Ritchie: $2.1 Million
