Kim Kardashian Made Millions Off Her Wedding

It took Kim Kardashian years of searching but she finally met a guy whose name also started with a ‘K’ and they got married. Kim and her pro baller husband, Kris Humphries, tied the knot in a ceremony on Saturday night with 450 guests at an estate in California. Eva Longoria was there. You know who else was? E! of course. They filmed this exclusive footage of the wedding.

Most weddings that are held on “estates” and are catered by Wolfgang Puck are expensive beyond imagination unless you turn your big day into a four hour television spectacular called “Kim’s Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian Event”. Then you can turn your special day into a bona fide cash cow. Romantic.

The event pulled in a total of approximately $17.95million but in total they received cash and contra “wedding stuff” greater than $8.5million in value. The New York Post has broken it down into sections as follows:

Payments they received
* $15 million plus profit for four-hour, two-part wedding special on E!
* $2.5 million for exclusive photos with People magazine
* $300,000 for exclusive engagement announcement with People
* $100,000 for exclusive rights to bridal shower with Britain’s OK! mag
* $50,000 to have bachelorette party at Tao in Las Vegas

Stuff they got for free
* $15,000 to $20,000 Hansen’s Bakery wedding cake
* $20,000 Vera Wang wedding dress and fittings
* $40,000 for two more Vera Wang evening dresses
* $400,000 in Perrier Jouet Champagne
* $150,000 in hair and makeup for photo shoots and TV “home video”
* $10,000 in Lehr & Black wedding invitations

So basically:

Congratulations to the happy couple.
