5 Ideas to Steal from Kimye’s Wedding

Unless you were hiding under a rock this weekend, you’re probably well aware that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West tied the knot in their signature over-the-top style in Florence at the magnificent Forte di Belvedere. With price tag rumors reaching as high as $30 mill, it’s hard to believe that there was anything about this wedding that can translate to normal folks' special day but get ready to be inspired because we rounded up five ideas that are totally attainable.


The Flower Wall: An installation of white gardenias, white peonies and white roses provided a gorgeous backdrop for Kimye’s ceremony. Flower walls for altar backdrops and reception decor are becoming increasingly popular in the wedding world (on a much smaller scale, of course!).

Serenading: Their close friend John Legend crooned as the newlyweds swayed on the dance floor. While you probably don’t run in a crowd with the likes of Legend, we do love the idea of having a friend serenade you for your first dance.


Photo Booths: At this point, the photo booth is practically a mainstream must-have so it was refreshing to see our Instagram feeds filling up with celebs taking silly snapshots in Kimye’s booth. Celebrities — they’re just like us!


White dresses for bridesmaids: Bucking tradition, Kim had her sisters Kourtney, Khloe, Kendall and Kylie dress all in white and the palette looked fresh and sophisticated.


Just Married Jackets: The “Just Married” leather jackets that Kim and Kanye donned after they tied the knot were absolutely adorable. While you may not be able to show off your newlywed swagger in a custom design by Schott NYC as they did, you can easily customize track jackets or hoodies to show off your new status.
