There Are SO MANY Prop Bets You Can Wager On For Saturday’s $43 Million Royal Wedding
Attention degenerate gamblers! (Like us.) While all patiently wait for (a) football season to start and (b) each of our states to start making sports wagering easier, there is another event that we can place some bets on this week: the very, VERY important Royal Wedding between Meghan Markle and Prince Harry.
That’s right. Brits are even bigger degenerate gamblers than we American are. They’ll bet on frickin’ anything, including the Royal Wedding.
After all, according to British wedding app Bridebook, as reported by Esquire, the total cost of the Royal Wedding is going to be around $43 million. So why shouldn’t we too make a little cashola on the side as well?
Check out this wedding budget…
• $386,000 on catering
• $260,000 on drinks
• $404,000 on the wedding dress
• $47,000 on installing enough toilets at the venue
• $404,000 on the music
• $162,000 on the honeymoon
