The Lavish Weddings of Donald Trump

Sometimes when you’re planning a wedding, it’s easy to look at expensive weddings as inspiration for your future. If you want over the top and extravagant, check out the previous weddings of Donald Trump.

Married three times, there isn’t much info about his first wedding to Ivana Zelnickova in 1997, but we do know their divorce settlement was a whopping $25 million.

Next up is his wedding to Marla Maples in 1993, which is estimated to have cost about $1 million. Marla’s dress was a white silk Carolina Herrara gown with a tiara that had over 300 diamonds in it. Her engagement ring set him back an estimated $110,000.

Finally, to his current marriage – in 2005 he wed Melania Knauss, his current wife. Her dress was a custom designed Christian Dior with a 13 foot train and a 16-foot veil, weighing over 60 pounds due to the 1,500+ rhinestones and pearls. It cost $100,000 alone, and was considered to be the most expensive wedding dress made at the time.

Other pricy additions to that wedding included a $50,000 seven-tier cake and $100,000 in catering costs.

That wedding set Donald Trump back another $1 million.
