Victoria Beckham’s Wedding Tiara Is For Sale, But Can We Talk About The Ridiculous Details Of Their Nuptials?
Wait, why didn’t anyone tell me that David and Victoria Beckham are crazy? I thought they were both just criminally attractive, but after reading the details of their 1999 wedding, it turns out they are both nuts. First of all, she wore this custom-made 18-carat latticed yellow gold tiara (also called a coronet) set with diamonds and dangling diamond “drops” with her Vera Wang wedding gown. They got married inside a castle in Ireland — OK, not too abnormal for celebs — but they sat on golden thrones, released a single white dove while they read their wedding vows, dressed their flower girls like angels, and employed an 18-piece orchestra who played “a Spice Girls medley.” They employed 437 staff for the wedding and all guests had to wear security tags, including their son Brooklyn, who was an infant at the time. To each their own when you get married, but damn! I had no clue the Beckham nuptials were so over-the-top. Here’s one surprising fact, though: Victoria returned the coronet back to the designer Slim Barret after the wedding, instead of pocketing the schmancy trinket like a lot of celebs do. It has been on display in London’s Victoria And Albert Museum ever since. Now it’s going up for auction for $40,000. Hey, Duchess Kate, you need a tiara? [Telegraph UK, BBC]
