Turns Out Kimye’s Wedding Venue Was a Total Steal

The wedding of one of Hollywood’s biggest power couples is finally in the rearview mirror. While anxiously awaiting dress photos untainted by Instagram filters, let’s turn to that over-the-top venue: the Forte di Belvedere in Florence, Italy. Built around 1590, the star-shaped structure served as a luxurious fortress for Grand Duke Ferdinando I de’ Medici, as well as a status symbol for his family’s prestige and power. (How fitting.)

The price tag? A mere $410,000 for booking. According to The Nest, the average couple allots roughly 50% of their wedding budget to the venue. Therefore, I can only conclude that with a budget of about $14 million, the West-Kardashian clan was being rather thrifty. Either that or the Belvedere got swindled.

My money’s on the latter.

Kim Kardashian Might Have Landed the Cover of Vogue

What Kimye wants, Kimye gets. Which means when Kanye wishes to see Kim on the cover of Vogue, Anna Wintour makes it happen. And apparently there’s nothing anyone can do about it, as a well-placed source has confirmed that the shoot wrapped yesterday in Los Angeles.

If there’s one thing this celeb couple can teach us, it’s that perseverance pays off – which is why I’m adding “Vogue cover girl” to my bucket list.
