We've all been waiting for it.. don't lie to yourself, you have too. Waiting for the day when reality TV's most extra star would officially marry in what is likely to be wedding history's most rhinestone-studded wedding day.

And it has finally happened. Promising multiple outfit changes, dogs in suits, cliff-height heels and themed portions of the day(s), Paris Hilton's wedding has been one of the most anticipated celebrations on record.

Tying the knot with American venture capitalist, 40-year-old Carter Milliken Reum, Paris Hilton wed her beau during an ultra-lavish ceremony in Beverly Hills, at her late grandfather Barron's Bel-Air estate.

As you would no-doubt have expected, the 40-year-old The Simple Life star welcomed a bevvy of A-listers to sit in the audience for the day, including actor Emma Roberts, aunt and reality-TV star Kyle Richards and singer Paula Abdul.

Abdul had left her well-wishes on an Instagram post of Paris' earlier in the day: 'Can’t wait sweetheart. love you both so much.'

Wedding guests arrived to discover a huge marquee and extravagant pink floral displays at the £45million estate, some of which spelled out the bride and groom's initials.

Hilton herself posted an Instagram story of some of the guests getting out of black people carriers.

The Proposal

Reum proposed to the heiress on a private island in February 2021, on a holiday planned as part of Hilton's 40th birthday celebrations.

In true Paris Hilton style, both the proposal and the wedding will be televised in a reality programme titled Paris In Love which, for now, is available exclusively on streaming platform Peacock.

The show promises to be something of an origin story, charting the evolution of Reum and Hilton's relationship, which witnesses both the proposal, the hunt for a wedding dress and, eventually, the wedding itself.

You can watch the trailer for the show here:

The Wedding Time

The couple's wedding date and time was no coincidence.

The pair married on the 11th day of the 11th month, at 11:11am. Why? Well, according to Tatler it's the entrepreneur's favourite time of day and the name of her media company.

In October 2021 Hilton revealed she was launching her own media company: 11:11 Media. 'I built a global business and brand over the last two decades,' she told the Wall Street Journal. 'I wanted to take it to the next level and bring all my companies under one media entity.'

'I love posting on Twitter at 11:11 to remind myself and my fans to ‘make a wish,’ keep taking risks and keep dreaming,' she told the WSJ.

Paris Hilton's Wedding Party

Thursday's Beverly Hills ceremony is only one facet of the nuptials. You didn't think a Hilton wedding would be done in the space of an afternoon, did you? Hilton's wedding is a three-day extravaganza.

Following the official ceremony, on Friday guests attended a carnival at LA's Santa Monica pier. Following that, on Saturday the celebrations continue, with the denouement coming in the form of a black tie ball.

The Hills cast-member Caroline D'Amore recently revealed on the Pizza Girl talkshoplive show that Paris is requiring guests to effect multiple outfit changes, according to different aspects of the wedding's various events. Of Friday night's Santa Monica carnival, she said she was expected to don a 'mandatory neon outfit, head to toe.'

Hilton's aunt Kyle Richards took to Instagram live to document the carnival. During the livestream the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star panned the camera round multiple times, showing Kim Richards in a neon green bomber jacket and green trainers, Paris' sister Nicky Hilton in a black dress with neon accents and even Paris Hilton herself in an all-pink neon bridal look complete with pink veil.

Paris Hilton's Wedding Dress

On Friday morning, Paris Hilton revealed a first glimpse of her wedding dress, posting a headshot to Instagram on Friday, November 12, just hours after Thursday's ceremony.

And the bride wore...... Oscar De La Renta!

The picture shows just a peek of the high-necked, long-sleeved lace gown, which the heiress paired with a simple tulle veil and diamond earrings. She wore her hair up, save for one giant tendril sweeping down the side of her face.

In the trailer for Paris In Love, we watch as Hilton tries on potential gowns, with one of the dresses in the line-up appearing to be the winning option.

Of course, this was only one of the wedding dresses. In an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Hilton said she would be donning 'probably 10' dresses in total. And we now have a look at some of the other gowns that the heiress wore.

Celebrity Well Wishers

As you might expect, with a lavish TV-ceremony comes plenty of wedding onlookers, some of which are A-list stars in their own right.

Actor Kate Beckinsale was quick to post a comment after Hilton shared the first glimpse of her wedding dress, saying: 'Congratulations beauty ❤️❤️❤️❤️'
