It\’s bad enough that George Clooney married an Israel-hater from an Israel-hating family. But did he have to spend the equivalent of $13,000,000 to do it?
From Nick Squires\’ article at London\’s Daily Telegraph:
GeorgeClooney\’s four-day wedding celebrations in Venice, which involvedpool-side cocktail parties, dinners in five-star hotels and a lavishwedding reception on the Grand Canal, cost an estimated 10 millioneuros.
Morethan 100 guests, including Hollywood stars such as Matt Damon, SandraBullock and Cindy Crawford, converged on the lagoon city for theextravaganza, which began last Friday…
Thefinal bill for the spectacle included the cost of Ms Alamuddin\’swedding dress,…Thewhite lace gown, designed by Oscar de la Renta, was hand-stitchedwith hundreds of pearls and crystals.
Thecost of the wedding also included the hire of water taxis to takeguests to and from the various venues, the rooms in which they stayedat the five-star Hotel Cipriani, and the reception at the Aman Hotel…
10 million euros is $13,000,000.
How many children could $13,000,000 feed, George?
How many of the Gazans you think are so oppressed could the cost of that dress have taken care of, Ms. Alamuddin-Clooney?
Enjoy your lavish weekend, Matt? Sandra? Cindy?
