Salma Hayek is reportedly planning to spend $3.5 million on her wedding.
The 'Frida' actress - who has a nine-month-old daughter Valentina Paloma with her fiance, French businessman Francois-Henri Pinault - is set to wed Francois in a lavish ceremony in France next spring.
A source told the National Enquirer magazine: "It took Francois over a year to get Salma to agree to marry him, and he doesn't want to spare any expense. Francois basically gave her the key to the vault and said, 'Go wild.'
"Salma has dreamed her whole life about a Cinderella wedding."
Salma is believed to have ordered a $500,000 customised wedding gown made by Nicolas Ghesquiere, who previously designed Nicole Kidman's wedding dress.
The couple reportedly plan to fly in 400 guests on private jets to join them for the five-day celebrations, which will be held at a chateau near St. Tropez.
The source added: "The ceremony and the reception will be off the charts. The flower budget alone is almost a million dollars. Guests will eat Beluga caviar, fresh lobster and Kobe beef from Japan. They will enjoy the finest French and Italian wines and champagne. The total food budget for food and alcohol is more than $1 million."
The couple are also said to have ordered an impressive seven-tier wedding cake which will cost around $100,000.
Valentina will be dressed in a handmade $50,000 gown.
