Sohrab Jahanbani, CEO of, said,

"Since hearing of Pippa Middleton's engagement to hedge fund boss James Matthews, a colleague wondered aloud how much might be spent on the day itself. With access to experts that know the wedding industry inside and out, we thought - why don't we find out how much celebrities typically spend?

"Some of these figures are outrageously high, of course, with celebrities seeking to outdo each other, seemingly. For those without celebrity budgets, we have some incredibly affordable professionals on Bidvine that could make your day perfect - you'll be surprised what you can do with even a third of what A-listers spend on their flowers!"
