Tom Schwartz and Katie Maloney Schwartz said “I do” on Monday night’s Vanderpump Rules, and while their relationship has been rocky, their wedding was absolutely amazing!
The couple was more in love than ever and their vows even made Jax Taylor emotional! They planned the entire wedding themselves, and Katie was especially ecstatic to see their vision come alive, it was perfection!
As most men do, Tom was very worried about the budget, and now E! News is telling all on the cost of the Schwartz’s wedding!
Katie had a lot to say about her big day, and she is still on cloud nine 8 months later. “I’m so happy to have married my best friend and love that I finally get to call Tom my husband,” she gushed. Adding, “Celebrating with our closest friends and family has been nothing short of an amazing experience.”
Katie revealed that it took the couple only 12 weeks to plan their wedding from start to finish, which in the grand scheme of things is way less time than we expected. Although she clarified that there were 406 days in-between Tom’s proposal and their wedding!
There were 100 guests at the intimate affair, however two of their co-stars were not included in their big day; obviously Lala and James didn’t make the guest list!
What shocked me the most about Katie and Tom’s wedding breakdown was the cost of Katie’s wedding dress. She spent $12,000 on her Zuhair Murad wedding gown! “My dress, when I put it on, I got goose bumps and I knew that was the dress I was going to marry him in and it had all the elements that I really, really wanted. For me, it’s unique and its different and it’s very me,” Katie defended.
She also shared a closer look at the detail on her dress, and I have to say it is spectacular!
However, Katie still managed to stay close to their budget; Tom wanted to spend $50,000 or less, and the final cost of their wedding was not much more than that. In total, the couple spent $51,058 on their elegant, woodsy wedding; I’d say that was money well spent!
I have one major question about this wedding; why didn’t Bravo or the production company help out? Katie and Tom’s budget and income is much less than any of the housewives we’ve seen get married, yet somehow they pulled it off and it looked amazing on camera. To be honest, in my opinion this was the most beautiful wedding we’ve ever seen on Bravo. Not only did they plan a fabulous weekend, but their friends all got along and no one caused any drama; it was a shock that this crew managed to get along the whole time. Regardless of their fame over the past few years, Tom and Katie have managed to stay the most down-to-earth; if you recall, Scheana was loosing it and acted like a huge diva at her wedding.
Overall I was very impressed by their wedding, especially after all of the fighting this season. Katie and Tom both seem determined to make their marriage work, and I can’t wait for the explosive 3-part reunion to see how they are currently doing as a couple!
Thoughts on Tom and Katie’s wedding? Are you shocked they pulled off such a beautiful affair? Will their marriage last? Can you believe they stayed close to budget? Are you surprised that Katie’s dress called $12,000? Did you think their would be drama? Let’s Discuss!
