New Guinness World Record: Most Expensive Pet Wedding
This week two dogs said “I do” and were dressed to impress, with the whole shebang costing $270,000. The wedding was between dogs, Baby Hope Diamond, a teacup-sized Coton de Tulear, and Chilly Pasternak, a tie-dyed poodle. Over 300 people (mostly celebrities) attended their wedding –among the guests were Ellen Degeneres, Mark Zuckerberg and his wife.
A ticket to attend this affair cost $250, and all proceeds went to the Lucky Diamond Critical Care Ward at the Humane Society of New York. A total of $50,000 was raised by the end of the night!
All vendor services were donated – free of charge! Baby Hope’s custom-made dress cost $6,000, decorative flowers totaled to $30,000, a large sushi spread fed the guests for $5,000 and an orchestra performed for $15,000.
The one performing the ceremony was Triumph the Insult Comic Dog, which made for a lots of laughs,
“Baby Hope, do you take this pooch to love, not spend the night with, and advocate for animal welfare as long as you both shall live? If so, breathe heavily,” Triumph, the Insult Comic Dog, said during the vows.
“And do you, Chilly, take this purse jockey to be your wife? Katie Holmes is back on the market, and I don’t think it would be any weirder than her first marriage! If so, sweat through your tongue.”
“I now pronounce you dog and b****,” he said.
