That divorce statistic, by the way, is scientifically exact for the celebrity couples featured in this Top 10 list of expensive celebrity weddings. They all spent $1 million or more on their big day, but only half of them are still married. Keep clicking to see how much they spent, on what exactly, and whether it was worth it.
