8 Strange Facts About Kimye's Wedding

Just about every wedding has its odd moments. That creepy uncle who insists on dancing with each bridesmaid. That gory Walking Dead groom's cake. The entire family dancing to the "Macarena."
Because Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's wedding was conducted on such a grand scale, their odd moments are a bit more dramatic than most. It's not often you see a wedding guest in a Batman costume or encounter a fashion face-off between the mother-of-the-bride and a supermodel. And, who invited all those Justin Bieber fans?
From bizarre speeches to strange guest appearances, these wedding moments are a bit more "WTF" than "happily ever after." Would you expect anything less from the Kimye clan?

Jaden Smith Went As Batman
Note to future wedding planners: You might need to start specifying a "no-superhero costume" dress code. The son of Will and Jada/rumored boyfriend of Kylie Jenner made a splash in his white Gotham getup. After photobombing Kourtney Kardashian and the dastardly Joker Joe Francis, the teen reportedly made out with Kylie in true Bruce Wayne style.
Kris Jenner & Chrissy Teigen Wore The Same Outfit
Someone at Alexander McQueen is probably going to get an earful. Just two days after Kim's mama wore the label's black crepe blazer with gold embellishments to Kim's #lastsupper, wedding guest Teigen hit the reception in the very same piece. You'd think a jacket that costs nearly $9,000 wouldn't be quite so ubiquitous.
Kanye's Strange Speech

Any bride would want to hear her betrothed say she's "way more beautiful than I am talented." (Though, coming from Yeezus, that might be the ultimate compliment.) According to Us Weekly, West's 20-minute groom's speech also referred to Kardashian as the "ideal celebrity," while telling everyone that "the Kardashians are an industry." Don't remind us.
Beliebers Bombarded The Wedding
While everyone else only really cared if Jay Z and Beyoncé showed up (they didn't), the Belieber community was so convinced that Justin Bieber would attend the wedding that they camped outside the Forte di Belvedere and chanted "Never say never." Alas, he was a no-show.

The Florence Connection
Thanks to hip-hop, we know that Blue Ivy Carter was conceived in Paris. Little North West, meanwhile, was conceived in Florence, which is why her parents dragged all of their friends to Italy. Sweet? Sentimental? Just a tiny bit TMI? Yes, yes, and yes.

North Basically Wore A Baby Wedding Dress
As you can just make out in this wedding photo, Miss West wore a white custom dress designed to match her mother's Givenchy gown. It's cute, but does a baby really need a teeny-tiny bridal gown? Or, a fashion shoot in Vogue, for that matter?

What About Rob?
No matter the details of the situation, they sound awkward and painful. Poor Rob.
Joe Francis Was Invited
Rob Kardashian and Brody Jenner didn't make the wedding, but Girls Gone Wild founder Joe Francis was there with bells on. Please tell us they didn't let him near Valentino. Or, the Jenner girls. Or, anyone.
