Check out the $600,000 wedding dress worn by a Russian heiress

If you think Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s $2.8 million weddings was extravagant, the news of the newest Russian wedding on the block is going to compel you to think again! Marina Shokirova, daughter of a Russian oil tycoon Ilkhom Shokirvo recently got hitched in a gown that alone cost over a half a million dollars!

Leaving no stone unturned when it comes to opulence, the grand affair witnessed 900 guests that included the who’s who from the A-list. Further, the wedding cake was a 10 feet tall wonder, prepared by Russia’s well-known boxer-turned-baker Renat Agzamov. However, the highlight of the night was undoubtedly the beaming bride’s glitzy wedding gown! Turning down bespoke designers back home like Zuhair Murad, Shokirova in turn went with British designers Ralph& Russo, who spun their magic into the $600,000 ball gown. The dress featured detailed embroidery, organza petals, hundreds of pearls and Swarovski crystals, and a crazy-long dramatic train. The cathedral train and veil truly commanded a royal entrance that left the guests bedazzled for more than just a moment.

Clothing apart, the grand ceremony also showcased impressive decorations that included a blooming flower bed suspended from the ceiling along with lavish center tables adorned with striking florals. The couple dance saw a troupe of professionals swaying alongside the wedding birds, which was precluded by a live performance by a Russian cabaret singer. Whoever said the money cannot buy happiness clearly did not live long enough to witness this wedding!
