By now, there aren’t many people left unaware that reality star and model Kim Kardashian will be getting married to New Jersey Nets player Kris Humphries this August.
But for those who may have missed the announcement this past May, the proposal, complete with 20.5 carat diamond engagement ring, will be shown on their reality show, “Keeping up with the Kardashians,” this season.
Preparations are well underway for the August 20th wedding; invitations have been sent, the dress has chosen, and even the registry managed to hit the public recently.
The couple, who registered at Gearys of Beverly Hills, is asking for a $1,250 sliver serving spoon, a $1,590 designer teapot, and an $840 dollar ashtray. There were less expensive items, like a $12.50 cloth napkin, however the most expensive request was a Baccarat crystal vase, which topped the list at $7,850.
The dress, it was recently announced, will be designed by bridal expert and world renowned designer Vera Wang. As a friend of the family for years, Wang was also asked to design the gown for sister Khloe’s wedding to LA Laker Lamar Odom back in 2009.
And finally there is the wedding cake; US Weekly it reporting that things might look a little familiar when the cake is rolled out this August. The ten-tier cake is said to have been inspired by The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, William and Kate, whose own wedding this past April was watched by millions worldwide.
The Kardashian cake, a white cake with chocolate chip icing and a black and white design, will be provided by Hansen’s, a bakery frequented by celebrities, and is reported to have a price tag of $15,000 to $20,000.
There are still a few details that have yet to be revealed, such as the guest list, which some have estimated to be anywhere from 250 to 1,000, as well as the location. All will be not just revealed but televised this fall, in typical Kardashian fashion.
The wedding special, a four hour, two part show, will fittingly be entitled “Kim’s Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian Event,” and will air this October on E! Television.
