Kardashian to wed Humphries in lavish reception
Reality star Kim Kardashian's much-anticipated wedding to NBA player Kris Humphries on Saturday will include a celebrity guest list, numerous dress changes and performances by Stevie Wonder and Earth, Wind and Fire, the New York Post reported.
The wedding kicks off at 6 p.m. local time in Montecito, Calif., when Kardashian will walk down the aisle in a custom-made dress by Vera Wang -- who fashioned three dresses for the bride to choose from -- custom-made Louboutin shoes and Lorraine Schwartz jewels, including a tiara and hair jewelry for the after-party.
And while Kourtney Kardashian recently tweeted that the bridesmaids -- all her sisters -- would be wearing green, sources told The Post they will be decked out in ivory.
It was reported the wedding would take place at the home of Google chairman Eric Schmidt, but it will in fact be held at the residence of another Montecito magnate.
The wedding couple will be showered with gifts from the wedding registry at Gearys Beverly Hills. As of Friday night, $66,138 worth of gifts had been purchased, including a $4,625 Ingrid black vase, a $1,100 Soudan black ashtray, both by Lalique, and a $750 sugar bowl, The Post reported.
On the eve of her wedding Friday, Kardashian took some time off from last-minute wedding preparations for a morning workout and trip to the nail salon, while fitting in time for an appearance on Ryan Seacrest's radio show, RadarOnline reported.
Kardashian had vowed to sleep late after spending Thursday night celebrating her upcoming nuptials during a wedding rehearsal dinner attended by roughly 80 friends and family at Scarpetta, an Italian restaurant inside the Montage Beverly Hills hotel, Us Weekly magazine reported.
While the bride-to-be wore a white minidress and Humphries looked dapper in a suit, Kardashian's 24-year-old brother, Rob, was notably more casual in red sweats.
Us Weekly reported that Kardashian's sister, Khloe Kardashian, delivered a toast and her mother, Kris Jenner, warned Humphries that he "better be nice to Kim!"
Guests who were expected to party the night away at the wedding Saturday include Justin Bieber, Jennifer Lopez, Venus and Serena Williams and Kim's close friend La La Anthony. The bash will be filmed by E! while Kim also has a $1 million magazine deal, the Post reported.
