George_Clooney_66ème_Festival_de_Venise_(Mostra)_3Alt1What is it about celebrity weddings that get people so excited that they want to mimic the style? Could it be the glamour, the shrouding in secrecy, the wealth and fame or a combination of all of the above? Whatever the cause, brides can’t seem to get enough of celebrity destination weddings! Speaking of celebrities, don’t forget to check out our post on how to Have a Brad and Angelina Style Wedding.

The most recent A-list celeb bachelor to be taken of the market is none other than George Clooney who married Amal Alamuddin at Hotel Aman, a historic hotel on Venice’s iconic Canal Grande. Now, before you let your heart shatter into many pieces let’s dive into how to have a George Clooney wedding- if you can’t marry the man at least wed in his style:

Hotel Aman blends the old world with the new. This 24-room boutique hotel will cost you a pretty penny at a minimum of $1,000 a night for a standard room, but in true celebrity grand entrance style- you and your guests will arrive by boat or gondola. The hotel overlooks the Grand Canal in San Polo, the smallest of the six districts of Venice. Named for the Church of San Polo, it is also one of the oldest parts of the city, known for its beautiful palaces, churches and market.

According to People magazine the Clooney nuptials cost a whopping $1.6 million. Want the bang without spending beaucoup bucks? Consider shortening your guest list or having a wedding sans guests. Perhaps instead of a grandiose ceremony and extended stay you could just stay there for a night and then move to a hotel more appropriate for your budget. Or, for the truly thrifty take your pictures there and marry elsewhere. It’s your wedding so make your own rules!
