Things You Need To Know Before Kim Kardashian’s Gets Married
In case you’d allowed yourself to forget,
Kim Kardashian is getting married today! We’re literally just hours away from the moment when the leader of reality TV’s most famous family will walk down the aisle to wed New Jersey Nets player Kris Humphries. Before that happens, let’s get up to speed on everything we know about the wedding so far — and what we can expect to learn as the much-covered nuptials draw nearer.
Kim has been very public about choosing famed bridal designer
Vera Wang as the maker of her wedding dress. She even took a full day of her life to fly from LA to New York for a f inal fitting! But to keep us in suspense she commissioned not one, not two, but three custom gowns. Whether she did this to keep the dress she'll wear down the aisle a secret or if she actually plans to wear all three (one to walk down the aisle, one for the reception, and one as a "going away" outfit) remains to be seen, but we're guessing that for the sake of extravagance, two of them are just going to end up going into storage. Right next to her custom Christian Louboutin wedding heels.
The future Mr. Kardashian is rumored to be be wearing a
tuxedo from designer Scott Hill (the wedding is black tie, after all). The bridesmaids were thought to be wearing green dresses, but a source close to the family says they'll stick with the black and white theme suggested by that crazy bedazzled invitation.
2.The Guest List
And speaking of family, how many Jenner/Kardashian family members do you think got kicked off the
guest list? It was reported that a few distant cousins were uninvited at the last minute to make room for a few of the family's more famous friends, including Beyonce and Jay-Z, Kanye West (of course), Kathy Lee Gifford, Kelly Osbourne, Ryan Seacrest and, of course, Justin Bieber. (We're going to guess that Vera Wang will also be there, since she was present at the wedding of Chelsea Clinton last summer.)
Kim will walk down an aisle created in the backyard of
Google Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt's Montecito, Calif. home, which we're sure will be extra luxe. If you need proof, check out this aerial view of his home. Sick, right?
4.Where You Can See It All
Footage from the wedding will be broadcast on
E! later this year, and we hear the exclusive rights to the images were sold to People magazine for a whopping $1.5 million. We can only imagine what the magazine will do to protect an investment that large (and in our overactive imaginations, there are decommissioned Secret Service members involved), but we'd be willing to bet that it's going to be an uphill battle trying to get pictures before People publishes them.
