Perhaps you've heard, but Kim Kardashian married Kanye West this weekend.

No, really! Those kids just up and decided to get married with no fanfare at all.

We kid... a lot. But while we await word on just how much Kim and Kanye spent to tie the knot in Florence (we know how much they earned, approximately: $20 million), let's take a look at some of the most expensive wedding bills in celebrity history.

From athletes to singers to members of British Royalty, brides and grooms from a number of industries have often spared no expense in pledging their love and loyalty to their spouse for eternity.

Or, you know, for 72 days...

In fairness, $32 million of the $34 million tab went to security. The rest of the money was spent on flowers ($800,000) food ($150,000) and champagne ($60,000), among other details.

Chelsea Clinton, who Americans first got to know nearly two decades ago as the young daughter of President Bill Clinton, is now a married woman.

The lucky man is longtime boyfriend Marc Mezvinsky.

Wearing a dress by Vera Wang (a family friend who was present), the former First Daughter, 30, wed the investment banker, 32, in Rhinebeck, N.Y.

An interfaith ceremony for Chelsea, who is Methodist, and Marc, who is Jewish, was conducted by Rabbi James Ponet and the Rev. William Shillady.

Saturday's wedding was attended by 400 friends and family members, most notably Bill and Hillary Rodham Clinton (wearing Oscar de la Renta).

The former President and current Secretary of State released a statement: "Today, we watched with great pride and overwhelming emotion as Chelsea and Marc wed in a beautiful ceremony at Astor Courts, surrounded by family and close friends."

Presenting Mr. and Mrs. Marc Mezvinsky!

"We could not have asked for a more perfect day to celebrate the beginning of their life together, and we are so happy to welcome Marc into our family."

"On behalf of the newlyweds, we want to give special thanks to the people of Rhinebeck for welcoming us and to everyone for their well-wishes on this special day."

The guest list did not include Oprah Winfrey or President Obama, who joked on The View about his snub, but did feature Ted Danson, Mary Steenburgen, Madeleine Albright, and a handful of congressmen and other prominent Democrats.

Rhinebeck, a beautiful, small town in upstate N.Y., was swarmed all week by paparazzi and national media trying to catch a glimpse of the festivities.

Everybody understandably wanted to see how the teenager who grew up in the White House blossomed into a blushing bride - and with good reason.

Chelsea Clinton and Marc Mezvinsky live in New York City and have dated since 2005, although they have been friends since they were teenagers.

They seem so happy together, as are we for them. Congratulations to the couple! Click to enlarge more Chelsea Clinton wedding photos below!

Chelsea Clinton and fiancé Marc Mezvinsky are getting married this month. The location is the Upstate New York village of Rhinebeck. Save the date for July 31!

According to a local resident, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he/she isn't authorized to divulge the information, divulged away anyway on Friday.

Marc Mezvinsky and Chelsea Clinton will wed at a private mansion just outside the town about two hours north of New York City, the Hudson Valley News says.

The wedding will take place at the former estate of John Jacob Astor IV.

Chelsea Clinton and Marc Mezvinsky got engaged last year.

That property is known for its breathtaking mountain and river views and is situated about 70 miles away from the Clintons' family home in Chappaqua, N.Y.

Reports say that a local caterer will be providing the food, while area high school and college students have been hired to help get the grounds into shape.

Chelsea is the daughter of former President Bill Clinton and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. Marc Mezvinsky is an investment banker in New York.

Congrats in advance to the former First Daughter and her future hubby!

Rumors continue to emerge that former First Daughter Chelsea Clinton will be marrying longtime beau Marc Mezvinsky later this month on Martha's Vineyard.

Like clockwork, the Clinton camp continues to deny all such rumors.

Chelsea Clinton, 29, and Marc Mezvinsky, 31, an investment banker, are said to be planning a wedding on the exclusive Massachusetts island. The summer home of longtime family friends Ted Danson and Mary Steenburgen is a possible venue.

Clinton reps have denied the reports, noting that the couple are not even engaged. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton weighed in last month to Fox News:

"There is no truth to [the rumors]. I keep reading it, and we keep saying, 'It's not true, it's not true.' But for some reason it doesn't go away."

Former President Bill Clinton's spokesman, Matt McKenna, said last week: "As we have said repeatedly, these rumors are completely false."

And yet ... the Washington Post reports:

  • Marc Mezvinsky was spotted shopping for rings.
  • Chelsea Clinton has been looking at invitations.
  • A prominent Washington couple let it slip that they've been invited to Chelsea's wedding this month - then clammed up.

All this could add up to something ... or nothing.

If Chelsea wanted to pull off a wedding without guests, vendors and friends being hounded by reporters, what would she say? Nobody say a word or else?

One other tidbit: President Barack Obama and his family are renting a place on the Vineyard just down the road from the Danson-Steenburgen place. That means no paparazzi helicopters hovering overhead. When? The last week of August.
