It's astonishing how much fuss was made about Kim Kardashian's wedding. It's garnered huge media attention (and yes, I'm aware that I'm adding to it!). The whole event was over the top. Here are just some of the ridiculous things about Kim Kardashian's wedding …
1 Number 3
Perhaps the most ridiculous thing about Kim Kardashian's wedding is that it was her third - and it probably won't be her last. And she's only 33. Plus it's only a few years since her second wedding, which was almost as ostentatious as this one. And filmed for TV. Why on earth do TV companies want to foist this upon us?
2 The Wall of Flowers
A if the Wall of Flowers he presented Kim with for Mother's Day wasn't enough, Kanye had to order an even bigger one for the wedding. Good news for the florist, maybe, but what was the point? They could have taken advantage of Italy's beautiful buildings and scenery as the backdrop - but no, let's have a giant wall of flowers. Because they can.
3 The Dress
Well, it could have been worse. But the front of the dress made it look like Kim was wearing North's bib. At least her front was covered up - given Kim's penchant for putting her breasts on display it could have been a lot worse. And given that it was her third wedding, the symbolism of wearing white was really rather pointless on this occasion.
4 The Expense
Apparently the wedding cost $12 million. TWELVE MILLION DOLLARS. Even if this figure is inaccurate, the wedding must have cost a seven figure sum at least. For any wedding this is ridiculous (and for a third marriage, even more so). You don't have to spend it just because you can. But if it's true that E! picked up the bill, the situation looks even more ludicrous. Is this really a good use of TV money?
5 Intimate Wedding
'We're having a super, super small, intimate wedding' Kim told Ryan Seacrest. She sure has a strange idea of what a small wedding is like! A small wedding restricts the guest list to close family and friends - not hundreds of celebrities and business associates that will promptly Instagram everything. You certainly don't have TV cameras and solicit media attention.
6 Wedding or Corporate Merger?
It's hard to shake off the suspicion that this entire charade is less about marrying the person you love, and more about creating a business brand. Kim hasn't shown much of an understanding of what marriage entails, and it's not unreasonable, given the Kardashian/Jenner dedicated pursuit of money and attention, to suspect that this wedding was all about promoting the family brand.
7 The Media Fuss
The media was full of reports on the wedding; even serious newspapers gave it some coverage. It was far out of proportion. Why should a reality TV star's third nuptials get so much press? But of course it wouldn't do so if so many people didn't read articles and follow her on Instagram …
I'm just astonished by how many people follow the scripted doings of someone who has achieved nothing worthwhile. I'm sure she's a nice enough person, but it's so shallow that someone can attract so much interest, attention and money for no good reason. It's just hype. What do you think was the most ridiculous thing about Kim's wedding?
