Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s wedding – all the crazy rumours about the dress, the budget, and the guest list...
The dress? Try dressES – Kim is reportedly having four. One has been created by Lanvin, one by Balmain, one is from Givenchy, and finally she is also reported to have an Alexander McQueen gown.□□Sounds like Kim’s going to spend more time on costume changes than she will enjoying her wedding.
Compared to Kim’s last wedding – which saw 400 people watch her get hitched to Kris Humphries – this one’s tiny.□□According to Us Weekly sources only 120 people – that’s Kim and Kanye’s nearest and dearest – will attend.
Er, this is Kim Kardashian and Kanye West – there is NO budget. Says heat’s Kimye wedding insider, “It’s unlimited – whatever they want they’re having. All in all it could run up to £4million."
Kanye loves monochrome (that’s black and white to the rest of us), but that was the theme at Kim’s wedding to Kris (damn you Humphries!). “I’ve heard black and gold is a front-runner along with just pure white,” says heat’s source.
Forget a buffet including cold sausage rolls and aunty Ethel’s homemade sandwiches, Kimye have hired the services of three-star Michelin chef Giorgio Pinchiorr reports Us Weekly.□□Guests can expect to feast on his signature dish, olive crusted lobster with corn puree and crustacean stew.
This is much smaller do than Kim’s wedding to Kris Humphries and Kim is desperate to avoid comparisons between the two events. Which means guests like Eva Longoria aren’t invited this time around.□□Kanye reportedly wants Kris Jenner’s former toyboy Ben Flajnik and Khloe Kardashian’s new boyf French Montana removed from the guest list. While Kim’s stepbrother Brody Jenner is reportedly snubbing the wedding because his girlfriend Kaitlynn Carter wasn’t invited.
For months we’ve all thought that the wedding is happening in Paris, and the official invites even name the super posh Chateau de Loueciennes as the location for the wedding, but the mayor of Florence has confirmed that the wedding is actually at the Forte Belvedere. Which, fyi, costs $400,000 to rent! “Kanye’s being ultra-secretive and wants to keep everyone guessing,” says heat’s spy.
No prizes for guessing… all of Kim’s sisters will be by her side on the big day. That’s Kourtney Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian, Kendall Jenner and Kylie Jenner. Bad news for the girls though, Kim’s insisting that they don’t steal any of the limelight from her, “They need to look as demure and unsexy as possible,” heat’s source explains.
Kim won’t just be wearing diamonds on her wedding finger – she’ll be covered in diamonds from head to toe. “She's even booked a special spray tan, which covers you in diamond dust,” an insider tells heat. Dazzling.
Kanye wants to disappear. No, not permanently – but the couple do want a magician to make them disappear from the dance floor, reports The Sun. Which is cool, if you like magic.
“We’ve decided to keep this close to our heart,” Kim wrote on her blog recently. Despite living her whole life on camera, Kim has decided that this is going to be a more private affair. This probably has a lot to do with Kanye’s reluctance to be on camera, and the presence of high profile guests like Beyonce and Jay Z who, let’s face it, would never agree to go on KUWTK.
Guests’ phones are being tracked
Guests’ phones are being tracked
Kanye is so determined to keep details about his wedding to Kim a secret that he’s actually tracking guests’ mobile phones for 24 hours. And if any information is leaked Kanye wants the right to monitor his guests’ phones for a further 48 hours! Guests could even be fined if Kanye proves that they’ve revealed any details. “The biggest of around £500,000 will be for leaking details of Kim’s dress, £250,000 for speech details and £125,000 for other details, such as the cake.”
Apparently, Kim and Kanye want to copy Wills and Kate and kiss in front of everyone on a balcony. The couple are even considering having a balcony constructed especially. “Architects have quoted £200,000 to build a temporary balcony,” an insider has told Grazia.
Lana Del Rey is reportedly being paid a six-figure sum to sing at Kanye’s wedding! Not bad of an evening’s work.□□“Kanye knew how much Kim loved Lana’s music, which is why he tried to get her to perform at the proposal. He upped the offer to perform at the wedding and told Lana that it’s his and Kim’s special song and it would mean so much to have her perform it. She couldn’t say no,” a source blabbed to The Mirror. We should have known the couple would go for something a little more lavish than booking Big Dave’s Mobile Disco.
