In an attempt to set the Guinness World Record for most expensive pet wedding, last night an itty-bitty Coton de Tulear named Baby Hope Diamond got married to a tie-dyed poodle named Chilly Pasternak. The cost of the ‘puptials’? A whopping $158,187.26, according to the AP (the New York Daily News is reporting the cost at $250,000–either way, it’s a lot).
The stunt, put on by Baby Hope Diamond’s owner Wendy Diamond, was all for a good cause and benefited the Humane Society of New York. Oh, and considering a 1996 cat wedding in Thailing which rang in at $16,241 was the previous record holder, Baby Hope and Chilly easily pawed their way into the record book.
So how does a doggy wedding add up to $158,187 (or $250,000?). An expensive gown helps.
