Yeah, I don’t get this either. We all know that Kim wanted to get engaged on her birthday, but that Kanye got her a chocolate cake instead (which is still the greatest thing ever, right?). I thought that was the end of the Kimye engagement rumors for at least a week or so. But I was so, so wrong.
Hollywood Life has some very specific information though, not about their engagement, but about their wedding:
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West‘s wedding will definitely be one to remember — and not just because of their celebrity status! The two are reportedly planning a blow-out bash that could cost close to $20 million!
“The wedding planner alone will cost almost half a million dollars,” a source tells OK! magazine. “Kim is thinking of using David Tutera, who has [worked with] everyone from Jennifer Lopez to Jewel to Barbara Walters.“
But that’s just chump change in the grand scheme of their pricey extravaganza!
“Kim’s all-time favorite singer is Celine Dion, and she has had her people reach out to her for a price; usually a private performance runs well over $6 million.” a source tells the mag. “Another option they’re strongly considering is Beyonce, who will be there anyway.”
As for the big white dress (which would be Kim’s third gown), the 31-year-old reportedly wants “options” — including a $8.5 million getup!
“Kim’s dream dress would have real pearls and white diamonds, like the [gown] designed by Yumi Katsura, which cost $8.5 million,” a source says.
I’m sure you know that in the world of gossip, Hollywood Life and OK! magazine are closer to the National Enquirer than, say, People in terms of veracity, but something about this whole thing just screams “from the desk of Kris Jenner.” It’s in all the details -“real pearls and white diamonds” on the dress and the possible performance by Celine Dion. It’s also in little phrases like “Beyonce, who will be there anyway.” Because we all know that while Beyonce might be there, she sure as hell won’t hop up to do “Halo” for Kim f-cking Kardashian.
So while I don’t think this story is true, I think the Kardashian family really, really wants it to be true. I think Kim has already picked out her next engagement ring and her next dress, and I would totally believe that she asked Celine Dion about performing at her wedding. The only person who isn’t totally on board is Kanye himself. Oh, and Beyonce.
