While we are all aware of the common bridezilla – the scaly, human-sized lizard wearing a dress and a veil – things are taken up a notch when that bridezilla is also a celebrity. Add an unlimited budget and a reputation to uphold to the mix, and you’ve got yourself some pretty extravagant wedding demands. Read them below.
At Mary-Kate Olsen and Oliver Sarkozy’s INDOOR wedding, instead of the usual edible bomboniere or sugared almonds, guests were presented with bowls of cigarettes. According to a guest, “Everyone smoked the whole night!”

Room of roses
Imagine being in a ballroom filled with 30,000 roses. Would you be able to breathe through the scent and the crippling amount of flowers? Probably not – but somehow Jessica Simpson and (now ex-husband) Nick Lachey managed it for their extravagant wedding. And, at the conclusion of their wedding ceremony, a 25 people gospel choir sang ‘Oh Happy Day’ as the newlyweds made their exit. OTT? Yes. Are we surprised? No.
George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin requested that no phones or guest-taken photos be allowed at their wedding. While we, too, love unplugged weddings, we’re guessing the reason behind their decision was that Vogue owned the rights to the wedding photos. Makes sense.
He who ‘Trumps’ all
Donald Trump’s third wedding to Melania Knauss was certainly no intimate affair. Melanie’s Christian Dior gown cost a cool $100,000, and had a 13 ft train and 16 ft veil. Is it wrong to be surprised that the dress only cost that much?

An outfit for every occasion
In true Kardashian style, Kim and Kanye’s wedding was anything but low-key. Kim had two wedding dresses for her special day: a couture Givenchy gown with a cathedral length veil for the ceremony, and a pearl-embellished minidress by Balmain’s creative director, Oliver Rousteing, for the reception.
The entire wedding cost a huge 2.8 million dollars – considerably less than Kim’s first marriage to Kris Humphries, which cost a cool 10 million.
No ring, no bring
And who forget miss Pippa Middleton’s recent wedding demands? Adopting the ‘no ring, no bring’ policy, Pippa Middleton decided against allowing guests to bring a plus one unless they were married or engaged. And, as another bizarre request, she asked guests to bring a change of outfit for the wedding reception.
