What You Need to Know About the Billion-Dollar Wedding Featuring Jennifer Lopez and Sting


If you recently got married and spent a lifetime trying to find the perfect wedding singer or DJ, then you're going to be in for a shock when you find out who one couple managed to get to perform at their ceremony.

This lavish wedding included not only Jennifer Lopez but Sting and Enrique Iglesias too.

But don't start thinking this might have been a gesture of goodwill by the stars, the overall budget for the wedding is thought to have hit the dizzying heights of $1 billion - this really takes lifestyles of the rich and famous to a new level.

This over the top spending was all in aid of Said Gutseriev and Khadija Uzhakhovs' wedding in Moscow.

Gutseriev is the son of Mikhail Gutseriev, a Kazakh oil tycoon thought to be worth more than $6 billion.

JLo by herself is thought to have raked in a whopping $1 million for her performance, which included three outfit changes and a few of her old classic songs.

Sting and Enrique Iglesias took to the stage too, with Sting performing 'Desert Rose' surrounded by dancing women while Enrique crooned away to the song he is most famous for, 'Hero'.

An explosive fireworks display and a nine tier cake were some of the other lavish additions to the celebration.

The dress itself was a spectacle too and thought to have cost $1 million. The 20-year-old bride wore an Ellie Saab, haute couture number which is reported to have weighed 25 pounds and was imported from Paris.

The tiara the bride wore on the day is also thought to have cost $7 million and there were wall-to-wall flowers covering the venue which won't have come cheaply either!

That's not all, the couple continued their celebrations at another lavish party in London.
