An elaborate ceremony is one that has many parts to it, and because it is so complicated it requires much preparation.

The third strikes me as the most likely without any further context. ;-)

I agree, and I almost said that, but I decided to make my answer somewhat more elaborate and a little more complicated. And while it might have been more sophisticated, I doubt it was any more expensive. :wink:
