When Donald Trump and Melania Knauss get married on Saturday, Melania will be wearing one of the most expensive wedding dresses ever made. It’s custom-made by Christian Dior and is reportedly worth $100,000. The white satin dress is made from almost 300 feet of material, and embroidered with 1,500 crystal rhinestones and pearls. It has a 13-foot train, and an even longer veil. It’s so heavy that Melania has been ordered to eat well before the wedding, so she has the strength to lug it down the aisle. Melania can be seen wearing the dress in the new issue of Vogue magazine. The wedding is taking place at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida, and the only reason NBC didn’t get to televise it is because Melania refused to turn her wedding into a pop culture fiasco. If it were up to Donald, it would have been broadcast live. That man is such a clown.
