Get the Scoop on Kim and Kanye’s Versailles Wedding
It’s going to be the wedding of the century. Or so says the bride. Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s wedding has been talked about for months, and the two are known as the “it” couple of Hollywood, behind only Jay-Z and Beyoncé. It’s been all but officially confirmed that the “Kimye” wedding on Saturday will be taking place in Versailles, not Florence as was originally suspected, and the entire affair, according to E! will cost over $7 million, with Kim spending more than $1 million on her dress alone.
TMZ says that the ceremony will take place at the Palace of Versailles’ most exclusive spot: the Orangerie, and Kim and Kanye’s wedding banquet will cost $2,000 per plate, with a rehearsal dinner taking place the night before for $650,000. There will also be $6,000 bottles of champagne available for guests to sample, and the night with culminate in a spectacular $200,000 fireworks show.
So what will the food look like at the wedding? No one knows quite what the actual menu for the evening will look like, but it’s sure to be extravagant. Chefs from around the world are allegedly being flown in to prepare dinner for the rehearsal evening and for the actual main event.
Most of the details are being kept under wraps though, and we will have to see whether an episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians offers glimpses into the fairytale wedding.
