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.
