11. Kim and Kanye’s $12 million Wedding
It’s hard to imagine how Kim and Kanye racked up a bill of $12 million – making theirs one of the most expensive weddings in history – but here’s how they did it.
First, they rented a venue in Florence which cost them over $400,000. Then, they flew 200 of their closest friends and family members to Paris for several pre-wedding parties – culminating in their rehearsal dinner which was held in the Versailles palace.
Following this, they flew everyone to Florence, Italy and were wed at the Forte di Belvedere. Kim had two dresses for the occasion – a Givenchy gown costing $500,000 which she wore down the aisle, followed by a short reception dress which was studded with pearls. Daughter North was also dressed in Givenchy.
The reception hall was decked out with flowers to the tune of $136,000, which included a 20-foot wall covered in white and cream blooms. Their vanilla wedding cake measured 7 feet tall, and cost $7,000, and the tab for security was $65,000.
We’re guessing that the only thing which didn’t carry a price tag was the entertainment – which included performances by Andrea Bocelli, John Legend, Lana del Ray and Big Sean.
