We figured that Kim Zolciak would go big for her wedding to football player Kroy Biermann, but it turns out that the housewife/songstress shelled out nearly $1 million to make sure every little detail of her wedding day was just right.
While the couple spent plenty of money on their nuptials, Kim acknowledged that they are fortunate enough to be able to afford such an affair. “We spared no expense — you only do this once. This is it for me. It was very expensive, but we were in a position to do it, and I'm thankful for that.”
The wedding also featured napkins with the couple’s monogram, custom-made Anais Collezioni dresses for Kim’s daughters Brielle and Ariana (although it sure looks like Brielle wore a Sheri Hill frock) an 11-carat emerald-cut wedding band for Kim and a band featuring 77 black diamonds and 26 white diamonds for Kroy, and an 11-layer red velvet cake from Highland Bakery that cost an astounding $14,000.
Despite the over-the-top affair, Kim is clearly just overjoyed that she finally found the man of her dreams. “When you find the right person, you're 1,000 percent sure. Now we're a family, and it's such a blessing.”
