How Kim Kardashian's Weddings to Kanye West and Kris Humphries Compare

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West said "I do" days ago -- but fans are still captivated by the details of the couple's lavish Italian wedding. However, this isn't the first time Kardashian has walked down the aisle.

Here's how Kardashian's most recent wedding compares to her last one.

The Groom

In 2011, Kardashian married NBA player Kris Humphries, whom she'd been dating for less than a year. In 2014, she said "I do" to West, whom she has been dating for two years. The two also have a daughter, 11-month-old North.

The Location

Kris Humphries exchanged vows with the "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" star at a private estate in Montecito, Calif. However, Kardashian said "I do" to West at the Forte di Belvedere in Florence, following a lavish pre-wedding celebration in Paris.

The Guests

Kardashian's best friends Brittny Gastineau, Jonathan Cheban and LaLa Anthony were present for both weddings, but there were some stark differences in the guest lists. Her brother Rob and stepbrother Brody Jenner were not present at her wedding to West, though they did attend her first. The same goes for the likes of Lindsay Lohan and Demi Lovato, though new faces, most importantly, the couple's daughter, were only present in 2014.

The Designers and Dresses

Kardashian's wedding to West was decidedly more fashion-oriented than the Humphries nuptials. Though Vera Wang, who designed her dress in 2011, attended that wedding, the crowd at her wedding to West included Vogue contributor Andre Leon Talley, Balmain designer Olivier Rousteing, who created a dress for her pre-wedding festivities, famed Italian designer Valentino Garavani, who hosted a brunch for the couple at his estate, and Givenchy's creative head Riccardo Tisci, who made Kardashian's wedding dress.

The Menu

For her wedding to Humphries, Kardashian enlisted Wolfgang Puck, who served a three-course meal, including a tomato salad, chicken with potatoes and dessert, which included a six-foot tall chocolate chip wedding cake. For Kardashian's wedding to West, guests were treated to a four-course meal catered by Galateo Ricevimenti in Florence, including a pasta course, fish, beef with a potato-truffle tart, and a seven-tier wedding cake with homemade strawberry sorbet.

The Color Scheme

For both weddings, Kardashian and her sisters both wore white, which matched the white flowers.

The Performances

For her 2011 wedding, the newlyweds danced to Robin Thicke singing "Angels," before taking in an Earth, Wind and Fire performance. In 2014, Andrea Bocelli sang Kardashian down the aisle, John Legend crooned "All of Me" for the couple's first dance, and the groom took over the mic too.

The Publicity

Kardashian's wedding to Humphries became an E! TV special, though there are no plans to televise her celebration with West. (They did, however, release a few photos.)
