The amts. are outrageous.   Think of what they could do with just a portion of that money to help people worldwide. 

I guess Constantin did spend much since he's not a CP?

Constantijn isn't the heir to the Dutch throne so his wedding is a personal event so less extravagant.

woah those are some expensive weddings! I had no idea Charles and diana's wedding was so expensive...and considering they married over 20 years (when things were cheaper) amazes me. I'm suprised Fred and Mary's came in before the Netherlands as I thought the Netherlands was wealthier dan Denmark?  Thinking

I would be interested to know what the break down is.   34,000,000.00 is just an insane amount of money.   Heck, I'm sure that would set most of us in  here for life, if not all of us.

Charles and Diana's 1981 wedding still tops the list!

I would also be interested what a huge b'bash like the Norwegian or a wedding anniversary or a throne anniversary costs in comparison to those extravagent weddings.
And I wouldn't be surprised if they aren't much cheaper. Thinking

I'm betting that a lot of it goes toward security, particularly for the weddings that took place in more recent times.

I have no idea of the cost but Abdullah and Rania's wedding always seemed quite extravagant to me(she wore 2 dresses).
The same goes for Hamzah and Noor, that was a big bash as well.

In comparison other members of the JRF had very low-key weddings eg. Ali & Rym, Haya and Mo, Princess Badiya, Farah Daghestani etc.

Beautiful pics of Rania and Abdullah  esp. the one where they are both sitting down and she has her veil over her face.

Some where I had found breakdowns on the Wedding Costs.  How much the State paid (w/a breakdown) and how much the Royal Family paid out of their personal pocket, But I can't find it.
   The only thing I could find (was on a sticky-note) about the Netherlands
    Public cost $21,600,000.
    Royal Cost  $13,400,000.    but this is a scribble note that I had made, so might be wrong

  Actually I think it would be more interesting if we had the Costs of the Wedding, and then the Income generated due to the wedding, however that would take a major expert in Economics, privy to all kinds of costs and figures.  But it would still be interesting

Absolutely, F&L were married a month or so after the Madrid Bombings, they must have spent a small fortune on security alone.
