Most notably, Kim’s Givenchy wedding gown cost $400,000, according to Us Weekly, and her Balmain dress that she changed into for the reception cost $40,000! Not only that, but all of her clothes and shoes had their own room at the Villa San Michele — five-star accommodations.

Kim Kardashian & Kanye West: Their Extravagant Wedding Cost
For starters, the fee for their venue — the Forte di Belvedere — cost a whopping $409,000, according to People magazine, and much of the cost was attributed to the fact that it had to remain closed for three days for cleanup.
The 230-foot Calacatta Vaticano marble table at the reception cost $478,000, and Us is reporting that it was so big that it was lifted into the venue by crane in 22 separate pieces.
Speaking of the reception guests washed down “$90-a-bottle 2006 San Filippo Brunello di Montalcino” red wine, Us reports, and the piano that John Legend performed on — a custom marble Steinway piano — cost $450,000, says People, and Us has reported that only two of its kind exist in the world.
