But the bride’s youngest sister, Khloé, took an unexpected detour right to the drinks.
“The night before at Versailles, Khloé drank a little too much. I had to wake her up and she was laying down sleeping [while] getting her makeup done for the wedding,” Kardashian, who wed West in May, said Monday on Jimmy Kimmel Live!
“I’m just praying that she’ll get up in time to walk down the aisle … they had to do [her makeup] while she was sleeping because she was so hungover.”
But, despite everyone’s partying a little “too much” during the rehearsal dinner in Paris, the no-shows and having the surprise dual country wedding plans leaked, Kardashian says the magical affair was unforgettable.
“We fell in love in Paris and then I got pregnant with our daughter in Florence, so we wanted to share our love story with all of our friends and family,” she said. “I think everyone just really had an amazing time.”
With Kimmel joking about rumors that West delivered a 45-minute toast to himself, Kardashian played along – clarifying it was “about 20 minutes” – before explaining the speech. “We had this long table that everyone was eating at [during] the wedding and, instead of having place cards, we engraved everyone’s name in this marble table,” she said.
“He was explaining to everyone that we engraved their names because everyone is engraved in our hearts.”
But not everyone whose name made it on the marble display was on hand to hear West’s metaphorical explanation – causing the couple to scramble.
“The worst was someone canceling last minute and not telling us and their names are engraved,” Kardashian, who stayed mum on the identity of the no-shows, said. “We tried to put white paint and cover the names.”
But it was the newlywed’s wedding gifts that needed name tags.
“We live with my mom still, and our trainer sent us a piece of workout equipment. My mom thinks that it was for her and she’s been raving about this piece of equipment that got delivered for her,” Kardashian said.
“She emailed the trainer, asking if it s from him … and the trainer emailed me and was like, ‘What do I say? Because she thinks it s for her!’ ”
The reality star joked, “I think I’ll give that to her for rent for staying at the house.”
