Wedding Planners Spill On Crazy-Extravagant Splurges

Illustrated by Mallory Heyer.
In some ways, to have a wedding at all is to splurge; many people spend upwards of $100 a plate for 200 guests, after all. But while for some, going the extra mile may mean arriving in a limo SUV or surprising guests with a late-night food truck, other couples take it to the next level.

From carting in china to be used for one meal to ceilings blanketed in thousands of “raining” flowers, ahead, professional wedding planners and designers share some of the most lavish requests they’ve encountered. We don't have the budget for most (okay, any) of these things, but it just goes to show that there's no limit to what some will do to make their big day special — especially when money is no object. Read all about them, ahead.
