It wasn't until Trump was caught cheating in 1989 on his wife with Marla Maples, in a very public affair, that a divorce became imminent. Eventually, after much back and forth, the couple settled for $14 million, a small sum considering Trump was on the brink of bankruptcy at the time.
“I think you always hope in marriage to bring out the best in each other, but after many years we realized, we weren't,” Maples, a former Georgia beauty queen, told Access Hollywood Live. The former couple's 1993 wedding took place at the Plaza, and the bride wore a silk, sleeved gown by Carolina Herrera with an estimated $2 million tiara.
It wasn't until a shocking tabloid cover in May 1996, revealed Maples and a Trump bodyguard running on a beach that caused a rift in the marriage. Trump, however, had secured his assets with an iron-clad prenuptial agreement that he refused to budge on up until the day of their wedding, as thousands of guests were expected.
Ultimately, Maples raised Tiffany in California away from the attention that surrounded Trump on the East Coast. In 2005, Donald Trump and Melania's wedding took place before 350 guests, including the Clinton's, Simon Cowell, Billy Joel and Barbara Walters.
Melania (née Klaus) Trump and Donald married in a million-dollar event that started at the Episcopal Church of Bethesda by-the-Sea in Palm Beach, Florida, and an extravagant reception at The Mar-A-Lago Club. The bride wore a figure-hugging, strapless Dior gown made of duchess satin, embroidered with elaborate hand beading.
It was so form-fitting that Klaus was unable to walk in the piece, so that she eventually swapped into a second dress by Vera Wang for the reception. The bride accessorized with statement jewels and a massive 16-foot veil that formed a cone shape to mimic fashion.
The entertainment and plated dinner was top-notch with generous portions of tenderloin and a Trump wedding staple of caviar and Crystal. Melania Trump, ahead of her wedding to Donald Trump, secured a ring comprised of white, emerald-cut diamonds set in platinum.
Among the guests in attendance at this grandiose affair included political pals Bill and Hillary Clinton. And, because you can count on the presidential hopeful to do everything big, their extravagant wedding at his Florida estate included one of the most expensive cakes in history (second to William and Kate's!).
