The couple’s wedding celebrations in France went on for over a week, with the ceremony taking place on Saturday in Italy with a reported 600 invited guests present. Several A-list guests were no-shows including Beyonce and Jay Z. Bruce Jenner was reportedly miserable the entire time and left immediately after the ceremony and Rob left before the couple even exchanged vows.
According to some reports, once you include endorsements the wedding will earn Kim $21 million.
Now E! News is estimating how much the wedding cost: $2.8 million!
According to top-end wedding planner Jinane Kafrouny, who has been at the cutting edge of luxury wedding planning for the last quarter of a century in Italy and is a senior event manager with Weddings Italy, owned by Regency Events, Kim and Kanye’s nuptials cost around $2.8 million (and that doesn’t even include Paris!).
“Cost of such an event would approximately be 2 million euros excluding flights, hotel stays and the French leg of the event,” Kafrouny tells E! News.
So let’s break down what we can of the bill:
Andrea Bocelli: “Most expensive would be hiring Bocelli and the rental of Forte di Belvedere. Bocelli normally charges from 100,000 euros to a million euros as long as the event is close to his home. Bocelli is probably their friend so the cost might of been low.”
Catering: “Catering company typically charges between 300-400 euros per person for such a menu inclusive of the wines.” Since there were approximately 200 people at the reception, the grand total would be somewhere near $110,000.
Forte di Belvedere: As previously reported, Kimye allegedly spent an estimated $400,000 to rent the historic venue for their ceremony.
Jewelry E! News learned that Kim and her family were decked out in “millions of dollars’ worth” of jewelry this weekend by Lorraine Schwartz.
Jets: Hunt & Palmer aviation Flight Services Manager Richard Hurrell tells E! News that the price to fly 200 people back and forth from Florence to Paris on an aircraft would cost anywhere from 37,500 up to 60,000 euros per aircraft, which comes to an estimate of $74,000 per aircraft.
Hotels: Joëlle Edwards, owner of Joëlle Marie Events, exclusively tells E! News, “The couple had paid for 100 of the property’s 170 rooms at the Westin Excelsior to accommodate many of the wedding party.” An estimated cost for one night at the Excelsior for 100 rooms could range up to 50,000 euros or $68,000.
Paris Dinners: One of the lavish family dinners at the Costes restaurant had a bill that was 2,400 euros ($3,282.72), while the pre-celebration ladies dinner was nearly 300 euros, or $409, per person.
