It was a match made in heaven when two children from Russia's wealthiest families wed in Los Angeles this month. Gaspar Avdolyan, the son of one of Russia’s richest telecoms moguls Albert Avdolyan, chose to marry Lolita Osmanova, daughter of energy tycoon Eldar Osmanov, at the legendary Dolby Theatre. The total bill for the Oscars-themed wedding came out at about $10 million, or almost P500 million. It was probably easy spending money as the groom’s dad is said to be worth $750 million.

Aside from the extravagant location, the celebrity performances probably accounted for a large part of the expense, with two acts allegedly costing $2 million. The couple had pop stars Lady Gaga and Jason Derulo flown in to perform at the reception.

Apart from that, the bride and groom cut into a golden 10-tier cake. The venue was adorned by flowers that reportedly cost $500,000.

The 22-year-old bride walked down the aisle in an off-shoulder Zuhair Murad floor-length gown. She later changed into an eye-popping blue dress for the reception.

Apart from the celebrity performances, the wedding guests were welcomed by a group of violinists, serenaded by a symphony orchestra, and treated to a ballet performance. The lavish affair was hosted by Russian stars Andrey Malakhov and Kseniya Sobchak.

No doubt this is a wedding that will go down in history. But does it beat these other extravagant weddings
