The Kardashain clan certainly knows how to monetize big events in their lives. Now, reports say that the Kim Kardashian wedding extravaganza will make the happy newlyweds 17.9 million dollars. Sounds like one big day that was more of a pay-day!
Perez Hilton reports that the main profit will come in the breakdown of "$15 million plus profit for four-hour, two-part wedding special on E! and $2.5 million for exclusive photos with People magazine." As previously reported, the wedding was always going to bring in the big bucks for just the E! special. But now, news is out about the other money that the bride will be making. Aside from the special, Kardashian will be paid for selling her engagement announcement (also to People), and for rights to photos for her bridal shower. In addition to selling pictures and information to magazines, Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries also raked in the dough for agreeing to venues and products for their wedding day. You know you're someone special when people will pay you to use their stuff instead of the other way around!
Who else will make money off the wedding? Kris Jenner, Kim's mother and manager. Do you think the Kim Kardashian wedding is worth all that money or has it been overblown?
