    An Indian steel tycoon reportedly paid $60 million for his daughter’s wedding — a six-day bash for 1,500 guests in France’s most sumptuous settings, including Versailles.


    Lakshmi Mittal rented the Tuileries garden in Paris one night and a gallery at Versailles another night to celebrate the marriage of his 23-year-old daughter, Vanisha, to 25-year-old Amit Bhatia, according to Thursday’s edition of Paris Match magazine.

    Louis XIV’s lavish chateau apparently was not enough — Mittal also had a makeshift castle built at a park in Saint-Cloud, outside the capital, Paris Match said. The actual wedding took place Tuesday at another chateau, Vaux-le-Vicomte.

    The $60 million price tag was about the cost of an Airbus A320 passenger jet.

    The wedding put on by Mittal, named by Forbes magazine as one of the richest people in the world, cost more than the recent royal wedding in Spain. Paris Match said the wedding of Spain’s Crown Prince Felipe to TV anchorwoman Letizia Ortiz cost $35 million.

    well if he hadn't have spent it on his daughter it would've been making money somewhere or lying in some bank making money. however it puts money back into economy otherwise unused.

    so he spent a lot of money on his daughter's wedding. rather that than arms dealing or drug trafficing, i say. The bloke's worked hard for his money, let him spend it how he choses.
