Any bride knows that choosing the perfect dress is one of the most important decisions that goes into a wedding. The same is true for Kim Kardashian, who’s set to marry fiancé Kris Humphries later this summer. Kim, 30, has been spending hours working with designer Vera Wang and her team to create a dress that will be beautiful, memorable and completely unique. And we’ve got the details in this week’s issue of OK!.
“The dress has finally come together,” an insider tells OK!. “Kim has changed her mind three times, and Vera’s team has made three separate dresses! Luckily, they don’t mind.”
“Kim is someone who has thought about her wedding day practically since the day she was born,” her sister Khloe — who will be hosting bachelor and bachlorette parties with sister Kourtney at The Palazzo’s Lavo and The Venetian’s Tao in Las Vegas on the weekend of July 22 — tells OK!. (The parties are some of the few things Kim allowed her sisters to take charge of.)
“Even though we are her maids of honor, we haven’t really helped out because Kim knows what she is doing,” Khloe reveals to OK!. “She has everything under control.”
Weeks ago, Kim showed up at Vera’s office with her sisters and a bunch of drawings. She considered several gowns (see more at right), including a goddess-style dress with one shoulder covered. However, it wasn’t just right.
“She adored that dress,” says the confidante. “But to Kim, it didn’t feel bridal. It was like a dress she had already worn.”
Right now, insiders say Kim has chosen a strapless gown with a cascading train and intricate decorations on the bodice. “She wanted something just completely different and unique,” says the insider.
And when the big day comes, Vera will be there to make sure the bride is happy. “Vera, of course, is coming to the wedding,” says a pal. “She’ll be on hand to make sure everything is perfect.”
