The Guinness Book of World Records’ most expensive pet wedding ever took place July 12 in Manhattan at the Jumeirah Essex House Hotel.
A $6,000 custom wedding dress, a $5,000 sushi spread, and a $15,000 seven-piece orchestra were just a few of the items at the event that was estimated to be valued at $250,000.
Animal rights activist Wendy Diamond held the event for her adopted rescue dog named Baby Hope Diamond, which married his sweetheart, a poodle named Chilly.
She didn’t actually pay for any of the pricey items. The event was actually a fund-raiser for the Humane Society of New York and everything was donated.
Some 250 guests attended with 50 pups in tow, many decked in canine couture from designer Anthony Rufio.
The previous holder of the record was a Thailand ceremony between two cats that cost just $16,241 in 1996.
