Didn't think Kimye's extravagant Versailles nuptials couldn't be topped? Think again. The "Kim Kardashian of China" just shelled out $31 million for her outlandishly over-the-top wedding earlier this month — yup, $31 million. Didn't know China had its very own Kim K? Well, she very well exists and her ultra-luxe nuptials can apparently put even the royal wedding budget to shame. Sorry, Princess Kate...

Angela Yeung — commonly referred to as "Angelababy" — is a Chinese actress, singer, and model, who has lovingly been dubbed the "Kim Kardashian of China." But if you ask us, our own stateside Kim K should be taking notes, because this girl definitely knows how to throw a party. For her wedding to actor Huang Xiaoming, Angelababy dropped a whopping $31 million, according to Refinery29.

What can a $31 million budget buy, you ask (besides several cars, houses, and that pony you always wanted)? The Shanghai Exhibition Center filled top-to-bottom with roses, an engagement photo shoot in front of the Eiffel Tower and a 10-foot-tall carousel wedding cake, for starters. Guests went home with ridiculously luxurious gift bags that included cell phones, flowers, and stained-glass window lights. And her dress? A custom Christian Dior gown that took five months to create and included 165 feet of tulle — enough to clothe you, your bridal party, your mother, your grandmother, the flower girl...

The bride's ring alone costs $1.5-million! Created by Parisian designer Chaumet, the bauble that features a five-carat pear-shaped diamond with another half a carat of diamonds around it.

Okay so Angelababy may have taken things a tiny bit over the top, considering that she spent almost three times the budget of Kim Kardashian's $12 million wedding and was reportedly only $3 million away from surpassing the royal wedding budget. While a girl can dream about "100 hand-cut Chantilly lace roses" on her dress (yes, really...), there is not a thing wrong with your mom's vintage gown. A seemingly infinite budget can be nice — and a definite stress-reliever — but all a gal really needs on her big day is her friends, family, and the love of her life saying "I do." But we still wish we got one of those gift bags...
