Kim Kardashian Wedding
Let’s face it. Most of us can’t afford to have our dream weddings in a $29 Million Dollar Estate or spend $10K on the wedding cake alone. Kim Kardashian, reality superstar and Kris Humphries, NBA NY Nets basketball player got married on Saturday, August 20th in Montecito, California. This fairytale formal black tie event was filled with A-list celebrity guests like Justin Bieber, Jennifer Lopez, and Will and Jada Pinkett Smith. Oh yeah, did I forget to mention that the two million dollar engagement ring was 20.5 carats?
Here’s a photo of the cover of People magazine.
My motto is copy the look for less! Who knows how much this wedding actually costs, but the best we can do is get inspired and work with our individual budgets. This no cell phone policy high security wedding is so exclusive that I could only catch bits and pieces online and on the news. The E! online photo gallery helped (a little). Here is what I came up with.
The invitation was all black and white encased in its own box with hundreds of black crystals. It had scrollwork and script writing. Can you imagine what the postage alone for these costs? Geesh! Here is a picture from People online.
Black and white! From the table clothes to the flowers, everything was black and white. The guests were even required to wear black and white attire only. There were black place settings and black menus with white writing. The tables were draped in black table clothes and the chairs were covered in white fabric.
The flower bouquets were white flowers only. All white floral centerpieces with little moss and hedge like greenery on the bottom and 3 tall white hanging floral arrangements covered the long rectangular tables.
Hollywood glamour best describes this wedding. There were chandeliers, crystal, and twinkle lights everywhere. A black pattern lattice print stretched across the table tops and white fabric draped the walls and ceiling. Small white tea lights graced and sparkled throughout the tables (probably the least expensive decoration of the entire wedding). Large shiny black Hollywood regency style partitions stood in front of the tented walls.
Oh the cake! A dimly lit spotlight displayed the $10K black and white (what looks like) seven tiered round wedding cake. It stood alone on a round table covered in white flower petals.
Good day LAsaid that the bride wore three different wedding gowns! One, if not all three, was designed by Vera Wang. My favorite part and BEST idea of the whole wedding??? Kim had a heart shaped piece of one of her dad’s old t-shirts sewn into the inside of her dress.
E! has the exclusive rights to the wedding. The special will be aired on October 9th. We’ll have to wait to get more inspiration until then!
