So this occurred last month (July) in New York as a fundraiser event to raise money for the 'Lucky Diamond Critical Care Ward' of the Humane Society of New York. Tickets to attend the prestigious wedding ceremony were $250 per person.
The pooches – Baby Hope Diamond, a teacup-sized Coton de Tulear, and Chilly Pasternak, a tie-dyed poodle – were united in holy matrimony by Triumph, the Insult Comic Dog, with help from Robert Smigel, beneath a floral chuppah and in front of nearly 300 guests at the ritzy Jumeirah Essex House hotel across from Central Park.
A $6,000 custom-made wedding dress for the bride, $30,000 worth of flowers, a $5,000 sushi spread and a $15,000 seven-piece orchestra were among the extravagances that made the wedding one for the record books.
'I am happy to announce that this is the most expensive pet wedding in history,' said Guinness World Records adjudicator Sara Wilcox, confirming it blew well past the previous record, a $16,421 ceremony for two cats in Thailand.
