A bride who married in a lavish Chechen wedding in Moscow over the weekend needed 32 designer label bags and suitcases costing almost a quarter of a million pounds in which to fit her dowry, according to reports.

Student Ayna Dzabrailova, 22, the niece of controversial tycoon Umar Dzabrailov, wore two wedding dresses by two of Lebanon’s most prominent couture designers, with an estimated combined price tag of $350,000.

Some 600 guests attended the two-day festivities, and the bride is said to have packed her dowry into 32 Louis Vuitton, Etro and Versace bags and suitcases – with the luggage alone said to have cost a staggering $230,000.

This does not account for the value of the dowry itself. While it’s exact contents are not known, it’s thought to have been made up of gifts, rather than cash.
