Want to blow a cool million on your wedding day? Well, head to New York City, where our sister site Racked NY has rounded up the seven most expensive wedding venues around. There's The Plaza Hotel, legendary stomping ground of Eloise, which will cost you $375, plus tax and 23% service, per person on a Saturday night and the Mandarin Oriental on Columbus Circle that runs $350, plus tax and 22% service, per person. Then there's the Pierre: "A wedding for a minimum of 200 guests will run the betrothed couple (or a parental "investor") $300, plus tax and 22% service, per person. Then add in about $4010 for staff and additional extras for a wedding this size." Bonus: They'll throw in a Sylvia Weinstock cake as part of the package. Nice. [Racked NY]
