TEEN Mom Kailyn Lowry revealed she will never have another wedding after spending $35,000 on her nuptials with ex Javi Marroquin.
The Teen Mom 2 star, 29, married Javi in an extravagant ceremony at an aquarium in front of 140 guests in 2012.

They divorced in 2017 and are parents to their 7-year-old son, Lincoln.
Kailyn reflected on their expensive wedding while talking about Marriage Or Mortgage, the Netflix show in which couples choose whether to spend money on a dream wedding or a a house.
“I had a $35,000 wedding and I would never do it again,” the MTV star said on her Baby Mamas No Drama podcast.
She continued: “I asked people what they would do and everyone said mortgage. Even the men that were not married in my life said mortgage.”
The reality star was probed by cohost Vee Rivera on what kind of wedding she’d have if she absolutely had to get married again.
“If I was ever to get remarried, I would want a small intimate destination wedding where if you could pay to come, come, if not, that’s fine, we’ll just do our own thing,” the mother of four replied.
Kailyn married Javi in a private civil ceremony before he joined the Air Force and cemented their marriage in a second bigger event in 2012.
She said at the time that they threw a massive televised wedding to “show the way we truly feel about each other.”
She wrote: “The real reason behind a more extravagant celebration of our marriage was to show the way we truly feel about each other in front of our friends and family.
“Our ups and down [sic] have been televised for everyone to witness. Now, we wanted to have the opportunity to share in a positive day of love and happiness. The other important reason was to solidify our family and our love.”
Kailyn admitted last month that she and Javi didn’t work as a couple because they “married too young” before shading his character.
The Teen Mom star said Javi can never “keep his word” – but admitted he’s very “cool and charismatic” in person.
“Javi is a great dad. I’ve never had anything negative to say about him in that way,” she said on her podcast.
“I think the hard thing for me is that he goes with whatever hat hes wearing that day,” she added.
Vee interjected: “If he’s with someone who don’t like Kail, then he don’t like Kail.”
Kailyn agreed, adding: “It’s whatever he is around. It’s very frustrating to deal with him in that way when outside factors aren’t into play we’re best f**king friends.”
Kailyn caused shockwaves last year when she claimed Javi tried to hook up with her in a parking lot.
Javi was engaged to his girlfriend Lauren Comeau at the time, who he has a 2-year-old son, Eli, with.
When she was upset with him for his reluctance to pick up Lincoln, she ranted: “You’re going to treat me like this.
“Oh, is that why you tried to f*** me on Tuesday? In the Wawa parking lot, while your girlfriend is home with your son… just this past week.
“He pulled into the Wawa parking lot while I was getting gas and was like ‘hey what’s up?’ then he opened the door and was like, ‘I wanna f*** you plain and simple.’ I said ‘bye Javi.'”
She added: “So you’re willing to come to Middletown to f*** me but you won’t come here to get your son? Only if it benefits you in a sexual way.”
