Who says that a wedding has to cost a fortune? Who says it has to cost you anything at all? Why not make some money off of it? Checks and gifts excluded, most people cannot manage to make a profit of their wedding.
Traditionally, weddings are notoriously known for being an extremely expensive affair. The bigger the guest list, the bigger the bill.
Leave it to the rich and famous to make an extra buck off of their special day. Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel said their wedding vows in Italy this past Friday, October the 19th. While Biel wanted a small and intimate wedding, Timberlake’s mom, Lynn Harless, convinced the couple to do it up big.
While the cost of the wedding itself has not been officially released, we do know that the newlywed couple was able to sell their wedding photos for hundreds of thousands of dollars.
The couple sold their photos to People magazine for $300,000! They were also able to sell them to OK! Europe for an undisclosed amount. It is safe to assume that the couple made at least half a million dollars off their photos.
Although for most, this amount would more than cover their wedding, rumors are that this power couple’s wedding set the couple back as much as $6 million.
