So they're calling it the wedding of the year REALLY? Ok, let me vent for just a hot second. I get it. Kanye is talented. Kim is a self made or shall I say mommy made celebrity. However, damn what is all the craziness about? You would have thought it was the royal wedding.
Ok, off the soap box. Now for the juice. I have sources that are cluing us in to what everything cost. As an event producer, it's budgets like these that are so much fun to play with. However, as a big picture, it really was not all that lavish. I know what you're going to say. You're calling me crazy. 2.8 million dollars is a ton of money to spend in a couple of days. First of all, Kanye and Kim definitely have it. Second of all, based upon his proposal scenario, I would have thought it would have been way more over the top.
One of our sources said that quite frankly they were bored over in France and Italy. There were not really any activities other than the required rehearsal dinner and ceremony planned for the guests. HELLO???? Spa day? I will say Kim did have all her female guests treated to a make up session for the wedding day.
Ok, so here it goes. I have some hard costs for you:
France Accommodations: 550.00 a night per person
Italy Accommodations: 800.00 per night per person
These don't surprise me. They stayed at George V(click for the link to the hotel) one of the nicest hotels in Paris and then a Four Seasons in Italy.
Lana Del Ray -Rehearsal Party- $1 million dollars. Are you KIDDING ME? Holy Moly! Yes literally she was paid 1 million to perform for the evening.
Transportation: $74,000 per private jet
Car Service over 50 cars and vans- $70,000.00
Private Make Up sessions for all guests- $54,000.00
Andrea Boccelli- $350,000.00
John Legend- $not known as of press time
Now that we have some of the costs out of the way, let's talk about the marble table that was used for the event with gold engraved name placement markers. WHAT!!!??!! It was one continuous table that sat 200 guests as they were fed this menu.
The Reception Venue: $409,000.00
All in all, it was one heck of a weekend. Somehow, word got out that Justin Bieber
was going to be in attendance. Meanwhile all the reporters were swarmed by Bieber fans wanting to see him. Clearly he was NOT or was he ever invited. Beyonce and her hubby J were not in attendance either. He has been quoted as calling the weekend the circus and that he wanted nothing to do with it.
I don't usually report on these things. However, it seemed to be something everyone was curious about. I always aim to please. Have a great week!
