Get the bankbook’s ready – KIM KARDASHIAN is gearing up for a $5 million wedding of the century!
The just-engaged reality TV starlet is telling pals that she’s modeling her impending nups to basketballer Kris Humphries after Prince William’s royal wedding – and she’s sparing NO expense.
Kim, 30, announced her engagement to Kris, 26, on May 25 after he popped the question with an outrageous 20 1/2 carat $2 million diamond engagement ring.
“But the ring is just the tip of the iceberg,” declared a source close to the New Jersey Nets forward, who stands 6-foot-9 to Kim’s 5-foot-3.
“Kim is saying that for her big day, money is no object. Her wedding is going to be fit for a queen and king.”
The couple plans to have three separate ceremonies in late summer in Los Angeles, New York and Miami, where Kris maintains a home – and they’ll fly their 300 guests to each location on private planes, said the source.
“The transportation alone will cost over $1 million, and Kim is budgeting another $1 million for food, plus $500,000 for wine, liquor and champagne imported from Italy and France,” the source divulged.
“She plans to spend $250,000 on entertainment, another $250,000 for various wedding cakes adorned with 14-karat gold and $1 million for the wedding planner, floral arrangements and decorations.
“Kim is also talking to several top couture designers about her wedding gown. With a $1 million budget for her gown and her bridesmaids’ dresses, the total tab will easily hit $5 million.”
She swooned over Prince William’s wedding to Kate Middleton, saying: “I’ve always dreamed of a big wedding. I’ll probably do something really over the top.”
“Kim’s mom didn’t blink an eye at the wedding budget, partly because she’s wheeling and dealing to sell exclusive wedding pictures for several million bucks,” said an insider.
“It’s going to be the party to end ALL parties – and the Kardashians will easily earn back whatever they spend.”
