Kim Kardashian Wedding: Waiting Until October To See It? Featured

Kim got married to Nets forward Kris Humphries on Saturday Aug. 20. But the world will have to wait a little longer than a few days to see it. Savvy businesswoman that she is, Kim Kardashian has awarded the exclusive video rights to the wedding to E!

Others have to wait until Oct. 9 for the first part of "Kim's Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian Event" on E! The second part will air the next day  too. People magazine will carry the exclusive pictures.

So until then, here are some interesting facts about the wedding:

1. The Dress

A wedding of Kardashian proportions requires not one, not two, but three dress changes for the blushing bride! According to Kim Kardashian’s family friend and dress designer, Vera Wang, the hardest part was coming up with three very different looks for the reality star—which included a ball gown, a mermaid dress and a slinky, Old Hollywood-inspired number that "10 women worked on for three months"—it was deciding which dress she'd wear to walk down the aisle.

2. The Invitation
Wedding invitations for the marriage of "Kimberly Kardashian and Kristopher Humphries" are actually housed in their own boxes. White with black scrollwork and script-writing, they are also studded with hematite crystals and a beautiful series of interlocking Ks. The invites request that guests wear black tie.

3. The Ring

Ah, the engagement ring. A blindingly bright, custom-designed 20.5-carat Lorraine Schwartz creation, it includes three inscriptions, two of them biblical. Fiance Kris Humphries presented it to Kim with a proposal spelled out in red rose petals.

4. The Guests

RadarOnline reports that A-list guests will include Justin Bieber, Jennifer Lopez, Eva Longoria, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith. And while the invite specifies black tie, the latest buzz is that guests must wear black or white.

5. The Secrecy
Don't expect to see breathless dispatches with photos from wedding guests on Twitter or Facebook. Guests reportedly will have to turn over all cell phones and other recording devices and go through metal detectors.  But fans now know where the wedding will be held: at the Sotto II Monteestate in Montecito, Calif. It's a pretty awesome space.

6. The Wedding Party
Like many weddings, this is a family affair. But a family affair in the way only a Kardashian gathering can be. Mom Kris Jenner treated herself to a facelift, for example. Kourtney Kardashian let slip on Twitter that the bridesmaid dresses will be green (we'll see if that is true). And Kim has reportedly arranged for white Rolls Royce Phantoms and Maybachs to transport the Kardashian clan.

7. The Money
It's anyone's guess how much this extravaganza is going to cost. We don't even know about the food and entertainment yet.  For a yardstick of major weddings, keep in mind that some experts put the cost of the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton's celebration at $70 million-$100 million. We do know that the Kardashians will likely take in some revenue to foot their bills, starting with the broadcast and photo rights. Kim also created 1,000 bottles of a (for now) limited-edition fragrance called "Love," which sold out in a hot reality-show second at $100 a bottle for the 799 bottles available to her adoring fans. Here's to additional post-wedding marketing concepts. And, of course, enduring love.
