PEOPLE magazine has released the official Kim Kardashian cover for her wedding issue!
PEOPLE, which reportedly paid a now estimated $1.5 million for the exclusive pics of Kimmie’s wedding, made a curious decision to exclude Kimmie’s husband Kris
Kardashian Humphries from the cover. A bit of an unusual move. Perhaps the mag feels they will move more copies with just Kimmie. They gotta recoup that $1.5 mil somehow!
To go along with the images, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star also granted the mag an exclusive interview about her wedding day.
“It was like we were in heaven,” Kimmie tells PEOPLE. Mr. Kardashian adds: “I’m going to remember how perfect it was.”
Kim, 30, who wore a custom-designed Vera Wang ball gown (she wore a total of 3 Vera Wang gowns for her big day), reveals she “felt like a princess.” She however adds, “Glam aside, that wasn’t our main goal. It was really about our family and each other.” Well family and each other alongside the E! camera crew and the reporters.
“It was so hard to take it all seriously,” says a guest. Another insider adds that Kimmie even told guests repeatedly: “This is our version of the royal wedding!” Wowzers.
A pal adds: “Everybody felt awkward, like it was all for the cameras and more like a TV show than a wedding.” And while Kris’ family “mostly looked appalled by the entire thing,” they reportedly “cheered when Kim and Kris were pronounced husband and wife.”
The new issue of PEOPLE hits newsstands Friday while the E! network will air “Kim’s Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian Event” on October 9 and 10, 2011. Below is a photo of Kimmie in her Vera Wang reception dress!

UPDATE – PEOPLE magazine’s assistant editor, Jen Garcia, defended the decision to axe Kris from the cover. Jen told Access Hollywood Live on Wednesday morning: “It’s all about the bride. We wanted her. It’s her day, we wanted her on the cover. He’s got a little height on her. It’s kind of tough to get them in the (same) shot.”
