Inside Ben Roethlisberger’s $500,000 Wedding Reception

  |   By Alison McGill

They call him Big Ben and the Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback lived up to his name by splashing out an estimated half million dollars for his wedding reception. Ben Roethlisberger and his bride Ashley Harlan were married last weekend in Pittsburgh with 600 of their nearest and dearest present.

How Much for That Reception Venue?!

Accordingly to reports, Ben dished out $113,265 just to rent the Spirit of Pittsburgh Ballroom—no catering, cocktails or coat check included! There was 150 staff catering the reception where guests noshed on beef tenderloin and halibut. Add the flowers, security and transportation and estimates have the cost of Roethlisberger’s reception coming in at anywhere form $200 to $600 a guest (we’re going with the higher number) which means the reception could have cost $473,000!

Don’t Forget the Dress

Capping off the cost for the couple’s elaborate celebration was the bride’s strapless Monique Lhullier gown, which would also have come with a pretty price tag. With Roethlisberger set to pocket a cool $12.5 million this season with the Steelers, we thing it’s safe to say he could definitely afford this elaborate bash.
