It’s a Nice Day for a White Wedding (Ivory for Kim)

Billy Idol sang about It. Kim Kardashian is living It. And I’m loving It. That “It” is wedding season! While it may be hectic for the planners, I enjoy the bridal showers, bachelorette parties and the BIG event is super F-U-N of course!

My good friend Gianna (you can see her blog here) is getting married in Napa next month and then I’ll be attending my cousin and his lovely fiance’s October wedding. Earlier this month I spent a weekend in LA for Gianna’s memorable bachelorette party. A few important details I noticed for a successful bachelorette party.

1. Pick a good location. Maybe it’s your fave restaurant or traveling to a city you’ll enjoy! We flew to LA and went to Nic’s Martini Lounge the 1st night. Chilling in the vodka freezer (Vodbox) with Nic’s fur coats. icon smile

Limo+Bus+in+LA+for+Bachelorette+Party

2. Transportation In LA with 10 women, a limo bus with champagne on ice was the only way to go!

  3. Don’t try to plan too much. We relaxed, tanned and enjoyed the the day at the Shangri-La pool in Santa Monica. I’m a slow reader, but I WILL finish “Something Borrowed” by the end of the summer. 

Bachelorette+Party+in+LA4. Have a Ball! This bachelorette party was planned perfectly in LA so I was taking notes! (Special Thanks to Whitney & Camille)

Finally, I can’t write a wedding post without mentioning the wannabe “Royal” HOLLYWOOD nuptials that took place in Montecito Ca. on Saturday as Kim K. tied the knot with her man Kris. I have a few comments and observations:

Kim+Kardashian+E+wedding

The Dress ~ I think ivory was a pretty choice. She’s gorgeous and he’s handsome, but every time I hear his voice and see them I think of the movie “The Princess Bride.” 

andre the giant princess bride

Awkward ~ His voice is similar to ‘Andre the Giant.’

Kim KardashianKris Humphries

More Awkward ~ The size difference isn’t a big deal, but when they hold hands, it’s like a baby grasping an adult’s finger.

kim kardashian kris humphries kiss

They don’t seem to have the greatest chemistry or know each other that well (at least it seems that way on ‘Keeping up with the Kardashians’)

How long will the marriage last? Here’s my Kardashian Subtraktion:

On average, I’m guessing most couples hope to be married 60 years.

So, let’s cut that number in half to account for the nearly 50% divorce rate in California. Then, minus 20 because she’s a ‘celeb’ so it’s down to 10 years.

Oops, he’s a professional athlete so cut that number in half again.

My final guess is 5 years tops!

(side note) Khloe has already been married 2 years to Lamar. I know how competitive sisters can be so Kim will probably want to outlast her (& Kim’s 1st marriage lasted 4 years). I could be way off though. icon wink

What’s your favorite part of the wedding season and if you want to guess, how long do you think Kim’s marriage will last?

Cheers!

  1. i really like your bachelorette party pix! but i’m not real big on wedding stuff, (gag). so dale, you’ll be in texas while i’m in nyc. remember it’s very hot & humid here! like we’re in a drought & everyday it’s over 101 degrees. try 105-110 throughout the day, & at night it’s still hot, around 85 degrees. hopefully this will help you decide what to pack. have fun!

    something borrowed is 1 of my favorite books!! hope you’re enjoying it!!

    and yeah i noticed that Kim & Kris don’t have the greatest chemistry, it’s just kinda odd…or mb it’s just staged that way on the show. = I LOL’d at the pic where she’s grabbing his hand…wow HAHAHA

    I am guessing 5 years for these two as well… I called it for Ryan and Scarjo and that was what happened splitzo. I have only been to 1 bachelorette party and unfortunately it was sad…the bride was in a horrible mood and went home after dinner crying. The rest of the people were put into a somber mood as well…certainly this party was WAAAAAAY more fun!

  10. hm yeah i dunno – ive been with my bf for over 2 years and we STILL arent ready to get married- i dunno why they feel the need to rush but I would give them 5-10 years too- i think you were pretty accurate! I mean I hope they will last forever but we know celebs and marriages go hand in hand but do not last – regular people’s dating is celebs marriage. wtf was the whole thing about Khloe not taking a crap when Lamar was around?? uhm no- if your not comfy enough to take a dump while he’s in the next room, then you shouldnt be married

  11. LOL…literally!!! Absolutely enjoyed reading this post and OMG…can I party with you and your girlfriends it looks like you ladies travel and party in style! LOVE IT.

    Kim K wedding absolutely agreed with you it doesn’t seem like they have the best LOVE chemistry ever so not sure and I think you being very generous giving them 5 years…I’m giving them 3 yrs…BUT of course hoping for the best for both of them.

    On a side note…OMG you’re coming to the Santana Row Fashion Show..Please email me I leave 15 minutes away from there and I would love to meet girl. Here’s my email

    Love your party pictures ^__^
    About Kim.. I give her 2 years max.
    And eeps! His hands are huuuge holy cow…

    xx

  14. Those are great pictures, looks like you had a blast!

    I’m with you, I really don’t think they have much chemistry. I think he’s only in it for the publicity and she just wants to be married to anyone.
    That picture of her holding his fingers was hysterical!! I’ve never seen that before and your analogy was perfect!!

  15. haha probably at least a year! But no longer. Ummm that hand picture is creepy! gross.

  16. A Daily Mishmash says:

    Haha I love your marriage logic! Totally makes sense :P However, because I’m a sad sap, I actually hope Khloe and Lamar make it…they’re kind of my favorite couple on tv (reality or otherwise) right now…

  17. adore this post. I just got a look at all the people pictures of Kim’s wedding, and other than her first and third dress, it’s simply stunning. Going to post them all tomorrow so everyone can see a sneak peek a day early. I know what you’re saying about his voice, it sorta drives me crazy. and the last episode of the kardashian’s did not show him in a good light. a lot of tension. I give the marriage a year. Or at least until the end of the their first spin off season. lol. :) thanks for another amazing post. xoxox

    i think they won’t last more than 2 years…she needs the breaking up publicity, etc!

    awww- i hope they stay married forever. her mother and stepfather are in it for the long haul so hopefully it will positively influence her marriage!

    Of all the voices from the Princess Bride, at least he doesn’t sound like the Abbot…

    My pastor who married my ex and I sounded like that. We couldn’t keep a straight face through the ceremony… the marriage was doomed from the start.

  32. i love your blog¡¡¡ is very cool kisses from Mexico :)

  33. looks like you had such a good time. and i’m giving them 3 years. you’re totally right about the chemistry.

  34. That bachelorette party looked awesome. I’ve only seen much less fancy affairs. This one looks like something out of the movies.

    I really like your equation about Kim’s marriage. It’s quite funny.

  38. Bachelorette’s party…how fun. I have never been to one but it seems like fun. Onto Kim’s wedding, I have never realized until you pointed out that Kim’s hand looks like that of a baby’s size when holding her man’s hand. Well as long as they really love each other, all is good but who knows what is going on in her mind.

    **I am hosting a small handmade jewelry giveaway on my blog**

    But I do hope that they are happy together for as long as possible…they’re a cute couple.

    And the bachelorette party looked like tons of fun! My older sister is planning one for her best friend and all she does is grumble about it. :/

    Ahhaha I didn’t know there was such a size difference in Kim and Kris’hands, that pic is great!!

    The bacherlorette night (or hen night as us Brits call them!) looks like SO much fun – and i didn’t even know there was such a thing as a limo bus!! awesome!

    Im going to a double (not joint, they’re on separate days and apparently it’s important to mention that!) wedding in Mauritius in January and am very much looking forward to that, and some sunshine!!

  71. Costumes come in a huge selection. A beautiful fancy dress , as it is called, raise people’s interest has always been through the many possible variations. Cheap carnival costume and their buying has never been so interesting and just like today, and people start to try more new unconventional costumes.

    i love keeping up with the kardashian’s and all of the sisters. the show makes it seem as though kim’s decision to get married was the result of pressure from the fact that she was the single sister. either way, i hope things go well for her. she is SO tiny compared to her new husband.

    your photos look like you had a great time! :)

  86. i was laughing as i read your observations on kim’s wedding/marriage! i agree, you are so right! it feels like their relationship is more just on the surface, there’s no depth there. i’m guessing 2-3 years…

    Bachelorette party supplies are very crucial to the many girls who are going to be receiving married. It is actually since the evening ahead of the wedding, a lady must possess a bachelorette party to say great bye to her unmarried days. Actually, this celebration will serve as a send-off get together from those uncommitted days as being a lady. The Bachelorette party will probably be packed up with actions to improve the existence through the celebration. With this kind of celebration, the organizer may have to search for your bachelorette party supplies. You, staying the a single who organized the party can invest in Jello Shot Cups with Lids. It is actually composed of 25 sets which you might use for your Bachelorette Party Games. Chances are you’ll also have the Penis straws which are composed of ten straws inside a set. These merchandise are economical and that’s why you could possibly have the ability to have them as a number of the issues to consist of within your bachelorette get together.`

    There is a growing interest in the many benefits of party tee shirt, and Bachelor party tee shirts are a way for you to enjoy these advantages at home. Since the more expensive units can do basically everything, you don’t even need the services of a party tee shirt therapist..
