Move over Kate and Wills... you’re just about to be upstaged.
Move over Kate and Wills... you’re just about to be upstaged. There are only two more sleeps until THE biggest celeb event of the year – the wedding of Kim Kardashian, 30, to pro basketball player Kris Humphries, 26. Going by her jaw-dropping, 20-carat engagement ring and signature glamorous style, we’re guessing the event is going to be extravagant to say the least. We’ve dug up the goss on what Ms K is planning...

The dress
Kim has been flying from LA to New York for dress fittings, making sure her Vera Wang gown will be absolute perfection. “I spent, like, 11 hours on a plane just to spend three hours in New York!” she says. “But it was so worth it.” Top designers are speculating that the gown may involve a close-fitting, strapless bodice with lots of bling, ending in an extravagant mermaid-style skirt to accentuate Kim’s beautiful curves. We wait with bated breath!

The bridesmaids
Sisters Kourtney and Khloe are of course co-maids of honour (great idea to share the role, ladies, if you can’t choose between friends/sisters!), with little sisters Kylie and Kendall also making up the gorgeous party. Kim has hand-picked the girls’ dresses herself and rumour has it they will all be in shades of green.

The details
The bride-to-be has hired wedding planner Sharon Sacks to coordinate the event in Montecito, California. Sacks has described the wedding to be, “The royal wedding of the century … Wait and see. It will set the trends.” We’ve also heard that Kim has taken it upon herself to write her own vows, and when it comes to the cake, Kim, Kris and Kim’s mum have been seen at artisan cake shop Hansen’s Cakes in LA, sampling chocolate, vanilla and lemon sweet treats. We can’t wait to see what’s served up on the day!
