Kim Kardashian wedding to be 4-hour special on E!

Well, technically it's just a broadcast of their August 20 wedding, but that's not important.

The event, dubbed "Kim's Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian Event" will offer all the pomp, circumstance and commercialism you've comes to expect from televised nuptials like Darva Conger & Rick Rockwell, Heidi & Spencer, Nick & Vanessa and Carmen Electra & Dave Navarro (as if anyone remembers this one).

E!, which might as well change its name to K! considering all the Kardashian programming they air, will start coverage October 9 at 8 p.m. ET and continue it the following evening at 9 p.m. ET.  

The network promises viewers will see everything "from lavish wedding planning to the fabulous parties." However an E! representative would not confirm whether The Butt and The Benchwarmer would actually walk down the aisle at the end of the special.

As the invitation reads, "Mark your calendar for this special celebration of Kardashian proportions." And having seen Kim's proportions, it's bound to be big.

Stay tuned.
