Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s over the top wedding reportedly cost a total of $12 million, according to Daily Mail. While that sounds like a seriously hefty sum, it’s actually not too surprising the number’s so high when looking at a more detailed breakdown of all the extravagant touches they put into their big day.
As well as the cost of getting everyone to Europe and transporting them around (thought to be around $70,000, per People), a spokesperson from the Florence mayor’s office told Associated Press that the now former couple had forked out a whopping $410,000 just to rent Florence’s Belvedere Fort. Kim’s wedding dress was designed by Givenchy’s now former creative director, Riccardo Tisci, and reportedly cost around $500,000 — meaning the duo spent almost $1 million just on the location and dress.
That pre-wedding dinner in Paris is thought to have set the two back another $4,100, $65,000 went on hair and makeup on the day, while they forked out $136,000 on flowers. As for accommodating all the guests, they lucky attendees reported to have stayed in a hotel costing at least $750 a night in Paris, while their Florence hotel rooms supposedly cost at least $885 a night.
As for the Kardashians, they’re said to have stayed somewhere even more lavish at the luxe Villa San Michele, costing upwards of $1,800 per room, per night.
