Paris Hilton’s wedding registry is full of ridiculously expensive things

In case you missed it, Paris Hilton is getting married in a few weeks. And I think it’s actually happening this time. Now that the wedding is rapidly approaching, Paris is much more forthcoming with the details. Like the fact that she plans to wear 10 different dresses on her wedding day. My gawd, that day is exhausting enough without adding nine additional costume changes to it. Paris didn’t tell us her reception venue, but we think it will be at her grandfather’s old Bel Air estate. The latest information to be made public is her registry. And I mean public as in, you can see the entire thing here. Paris Hilton and Carter Reum are registered at Geary’s of Beverly Hills. Nothing in that last sentence should indicate that their registry had anything practical or affordable on it. No, this is no plebeian wedding registry, this is a registry filled with ceramic cheetahs, Hermès china and Lalique Double Fish objets d’art, dontchaknow.

Paris Hilton really said go big or go home!

The reality star and heiress knows exactly what she wants her friends and family

to give her as they celebrate her upcoming marriage to Carter Reum… And, obviously, that includes a $1,845 caviar-vodka set and $4,885 Baccarat crystal vase.

Paris’ wedding gift registry appears to highlight her expensive taste, as she’s choosing only the best for her home with Carter, who popped the question in February.

According to her wedding registry at Gearys Beverly Hills, Paris is asking guests for a host of crystal home decor items, as well as a sterling silver Buccellati picture frame ($3,200), Baccarat candleholder shaped like a lamp ($1,220) and Baccarat crystal bear figurine ($370).

Among the essentials that will be stocking her kitchen are a walnut Christofle MOOD Party Tray ($985), Buccellati Dahlia flower-shaped dish ($650), William Yeoward Crystal Caprice caviar server ($1,000), Baccarat champagne glass set ($990) and Christofle champagne cooler ($860) to match.

I can’t say I’m surprised. I didn’t expect Paris to register at Target. To be fair, there are a few items that would be considered affordable with Paris’ set. The first item is a $160 decanter. And what I assume will be Paris’ everyday plates are $28 a piece. Granted there are the items listed above. Plus, those cheetahs that range between $525 and $2,250 a cat. Don’t worry, there are plenty to choose from, and some other small animal sculptures as well – lovebirds, a greyhound and even a horse.

So I’m left with a shoulder shrug when it comes to this price tag of the Paris’ registry. I am, however, critical of the items on it because I’m like that. The article mentioned the caviar-vodka set but I’m curious about why she also needed a Caprice Caviar Server with spoon? Does one find themselves needing two caviar servers regularly enough? I really dislike her Hermès china pattern. Maybe she picked it for the giant H in the mosaic, it’ll remind Carter who calls the shot every time he finishes his caviar and toast tips. I like the stainless place settings (which cost more than my wedding silver pattern, btw). But I didn’t care for any of her crystal patterns (yes, she has more than one selected). I’m getting a kick out of all the picture frames on the registry. I guess the selfies have to go somewhere. And don’t get me started on why someone needs three glass or ceramic cheetahs. I am curious about this thing being made public. I worry because her fans already get too close to Paris as it is. Did she make this available for them to be able to send her wedding gifts? I don’t know. What I do know is that my Amazon gift card is probably not going to go over very well. Maybe Carter will appreciate it.

    I’m looking at it now and I’m mostly intrigued by what has been purchased and what hasn’t. Hermes china place settings for 8? Fulfilled.

    300 dollar knife? meh, no one is buying that.

    I’m laughing at the person who spent 860 on the champagne ice bucket but drew the line at the 210 dollar ice tongs.

    I mean, its Paris Hilton, what did people expect, she was going to register at Macy’s for Martha Stewart towels?

    • Aud says:

      I noticed the ice bucket too. Who skips the tongs? Made me irrationally angry lol.

      • Becks1 says:

        It reminds me of the line from Crazy Rich Asians, about how Araminta and Colin’s wedding cost 40 million – “we are Methodists, 20 million is our limit.”

        I can just see someone buying the ice bucket and going – “oh no no, 860 is my limit.”

        That means someone else is the random person who sends them tongs, LOL.

      • BothSidesNow says:

        @ Becks1, I actually watched that last night 🤣🤣. When they made that comment, I just died laughing!!! With the bride walking down an isle filled with water….

        I adore Awkwafina and I was reminded by how stunning Gemma Chan is, as we were talking about her yesterday. As well as Michelle Yeoh too!! I have always found her to be a old Hollywood glamour type!

  2. L84Tea says:

    Silly me, I guess I shouldn’t have been registering for that Kitchenaid stand mixer and Cuisinart food processor when I could’ve asked for ceramic cheetas and crystal bears.

  3. Noki says:

    Wow so for whatever reason people really believe she is going through with this one huh? Well all her friends,family and associates are rich so its nothing to them if it doesnt end in wedding bells.

  4. antipodean says:

    After so many years of this vacuous woman’s stroll, I find it most intriguing to see if she can finally land this toothy beau. Her public persona of the eternally attractive ingenue is wearing very, very thin. She has nothing to offer but her very deep pockets, and it seems, at last, that “true love” does exist! I guess purchasing a child will be the next goal.

    • Jules says:

      She’s so out of touch with reality, like a relic from another era. The photos of her with the twee pink bow in her hair are so silly.

  5. Merricat says:

    Rome burns, Paris fiddles. I don’t know, maybe keep your conspicuous consumption to yourself and your small cadre of careless rich folk.
    Not in the mood today, I guess.

    • MarcelMarcel says:

      Same and I say this as someone who enjoyed watching cooking with Paris.
      Overconsumption is literally destroying the environment, animals and the homes of people in Polynesian island nations.
      It’s a part of why I love Jaden Smith’s personal style. He always makes a point to acknowledge that style can be sustainable and advocates for more environmentally friendly options.

  6. Rachael says:

    Why does she need so many trays?

    • agnes says:

      Her mansion has a lot of rooms. *shrugs*

    • BothSidesNow says:

      Not only the trays, but the vases AND crystal figurines?? I saw the list this weekend and I just died laughing!!! She is 40 years old, has her own home, as well as he does, and she has a bridal registry…? I guess she was desperately trying to fill the list with the most asinine items that are surrounded by knick-knacks and an entire set of Hermès dinnerware and flatware!! Plus, the ridiculous amount of vases??? She doesn’t already own vases to fill a large scale commercial florists? Give me a break….

  7. Driver8 says:

    I wouldn’t mind an expensive glass cheetah.

    • Princess Caroline says:

      I’ve been wanting one of the one’s that Keeley has in Ted Lasso! I don’t know why but her pink hued cheetahs call to me as does her feathery lamps

  8. ncboudicca says:

    I don’t know why, but that list seems to have her mother’s fingerprints all over it. Like, cheetah figurines? Definitely Paris, but the candlesticks? Kathy Hilton all the way.

  9. Sofia says:

    I mean what is the point other than “I can” for Paris? Surely she’s wealthy enough to buy anything she wants from the list anyways? Why does she need people to gift her these things?

    I get that receiving gifts is nice and having a wedding registry full of items you can afford is normal for couples nowhere near Paris’ net worth but it still seems ridiculous to me. Maybe it’s the items itself.

    • Mina_Esq says:

      Personally, I’m annoyed when people don’t get a baby or wedding registry. Like, obviously I have to get you a gift so just effing tell me what you want so I don’t have to waste time worrying about it. Giving money is also kind of weird when it’s not a very young couple that has no money. That’s just me. I think she did this for the benefit of the guests. She obvi already has everything she wants and needs. I’d appreciate this if I were invited to her wedding lol

  10. MsIam says:

    It seems like the run up to this wedding started forever ago. And the ceremony is still a few weeks away? Yikes!

  11. TIFFANY says:

    I give it a few weeks.

    Yeah, she likes engagements, not marriage.

    • lucy2 says:

      Same. If they actually make it down the aisle, it won’t last very long. She’s awful.

      If I were that wealthy, I would feel so gross asking for gifts like that. I would do a charity registry, or simply say no gifts.

  12. Miranda says:

    Yeah, no. I side-eye rich people wedding registries. They make sense for us normals, because there are some things that we’d love to have, but could never justify spending that kind of money on ourselves. Hell, most of the couples I know who have gotten married in the past few years just asked for contributions to their honeymoon fund (which is what my fiancé and I are doing). For the super-rich, it seems greedy to ask for anything other than charitable donations.

    • Mina_Esq says:

      Giving wedding gifts is a custom in our culture. It has nothing to do with how rich you are. I don’t side-eye this at all. People are gonna get them something, might as well be something they want. I personally think it’s kind of tacky to ask for money, but I gladly give money if the couple says that they want to help fund their honeymoon, basement reno or whatever.

      • bettyrose says:

        What do you mean by “our” culture? If you mean something other than American culture, forgive me for assuming, but American consumerism is absolutely toxic. The pressure to waste money on buying gifts the recipient doesn’t want or need perpetuates a society of haves and have nots. Paris Hilton – or honestly any grown ass adult who already has a fully stocked house – should not be asking for throwaway gifts, things she’ll never even use. If a loved one has a special occasion (wedding/birthday whatever) and you know of a gift they’ll treasure, that’s great, but just buying something out of social obligation benefits no one but the corporate gods. A nice card stating a donation has been gifted to a worthy organization in the recipient’s name is always an option.

      • Mina_Esq says:

        BettyRose – honestly, I can’t think of one culture where there isn’t a gift giving tradition surrounding weddings. There very well maybe be, but I’m just not aware of any. I have always and will always give wedding gifts, no matter how rich the couple is. If they have a registry, it makes it easy.

      • Bettyrose says:

        Mina – yes it’s a norm in most if not all cultures but that doesn’t make the custom beyond reproach. It’s also not a sufficient justification for the greedy behavior of a shallow, materialistic twit like Paris Hilton.

    • L84Tea says:

      I agree with this. People with as much money as she has really has no reason to ask for china and serving trays when she can send an assistant out to buy all of these things at the drop of a hat like it’s nothing. It has to be just because she can and for the symbolism? Like, this is what you’re supposed to do when you’re getting married? It just feels tacky because the point of the registry is to set the couple up with all the things they need to make a home and to get those nice things that are supposed to last their lifetime–china, good pots and pans, nice glassware and flatware, appliances. The total of all of those things put together don’t even equal what she spends on one handbag. I mean, I get that she just wants her bridal “due”, but if I had her money I’d be asking people to donate to charities instead.

    • SusieQ says:

      My fiancé and I are skipping the registry for our wedding in May. I’ll be 36, and he’ll be 46, so we already have all the household items (in some cases duplicates). We’re telling our guests that their presence is our present, since we haven’t been able to see many of them in this Covid era. We’re also considering asking for donations to local nonprofits, like the no-kill shelter where I got my beloved big orange cat.

      • L84Tea says:

        Love this! Best wishes to you!

      • Anne Call says:

        Registries seem to be leftover from the days of couples getting married much younger and never living together and not having any basic kitchen/bath stuff. I do still use the stainless steel flatware and a few other items I got so long ago on my registry. I’m amazed that Geary’s is still a thing. That place has been there forever and very staid and traditional. She should have had guests donate to a special charity, but she probably liked the idea of getting attention for what she picked for the registry. Also she looks ridiculous, you’re almost 40 not 20 anymore girl.

      • lucy2 says:

        I love this!
        I went to a wedding for a couple who have lived together for a while too, so they already have everything. They ended up asking for a lot of pricey stuff from higher end stores, I guess things they wouldn’t normally buy for themselves? It came off a bit greedy. I just wrote them a check.

      • Miranda says:

        @SusieQ – A no-kill shelter is the worthiest of causes, and people will almost certainly throw loads of money at it if you decide to go that route! I turned 30 a couple of months back, and since many people insisted on giving me gifts as it was a milestone birthday, I asked them to help me raise enough money to pay the adoption fees for 30 animals from local shelters. I ended up with enough for 34!

    • kelleybelle says:

      “The richer your friends, the more they will cost you.”

  13. Watson says:

    Her wedding registry was shockingly subdued to me. Nothing was too loud and all of it was pretty tasteful. Mind you it did highlight the difference btwn normal people and Paris though: who the hell needs so much crystal? Like soooo many vases, bowls etc. All gorgeous mind you, but am curious to see what she’s gonna do with all those crystal butterflies she requested.

  14. Eurydice says:

    It’s kind of strange list. Everything looked to me pretty cohesive and planned until it got to all the Lalique – then it started to look rushed, like “OK, I’m bored, let’s click on anything that says Lalique, Baccarat and Hermes.” And when I saw the Lalique bird wall sculpture and all the itty bitty colored flowers, I thought – this is what grandma’s house would look like if she were really, really rich and had no taste.

    • Cleo D says:

      You got it- it was very grandma. And I’m 70, so-!

    • Moneypenny424 says:

      My aunt was obsessed with Lalique cheetahs in the late 80s, so I found it absolutely hilarious that Paris registered for some. Sharing tastes with my 75 year old gaudy (bless her heart) aunt!

    • Jenn says:

      There’s one thing I ADORE on her wedding registry, and it’s by far the most useless (the Baccarat glass Bearbrick). I’ve noticed she’s super into very sculptural “design tchtochkes”—me, too.

      • Watson says:

        I love the Bearbrick too! It’s funny though cause it doesn’t go with the rest of her super expensive crystal tchotchkes cause it’s more modern so i’m guessing this was her fiance’s pick.

      • Eurydice says:

        Years ago, I stayed at a B&B (ish) somewhere near Avebury. The older lady who owned the house had a whole flock of ceramic birds flying up the wall in her parlor and there were tchtotchkes on doilies on every possible surface. This registry list reminds me of that.

  15. Steph says:

    This is only tacky to me bc it doesn’t include charity donations. I don’t know how rich ppl do their invite list but if I was going to a close friend’s wedding I’d do the charity thing but I’d want to give a little something as a gift as well. So, Registry plus charitable links world be perfect for me

  16. JennyJenny says:

    I really got a chuckle from the Lalique raisin bowl!
    Will Paris actually know what some of these items are for?
    She’s never, ever struck me as the domestic type.
    God help the staff who may accidentally break any of those Hermès dishes!!!

  17. Rhoda Cowboy says:

    Next year…Paris Hilton’s garage sale.

    • TheRickestRick says:

      Exactly! Not only is it extremely tacky to have people buy her rich *ss these stupid unnecessary gifts instead of donating to useful charities , it’ll all be pointless when this relationship inevitably falls apart.

  18. Giddy says:

    Do we think that her fiancé knows that he exists merely as an excuse for all this crazy? After all, this is one thing that Paris absolutely has to have an escort for. Maybe it’s true love and I’m being horribly negative. But I think that he’s a place holder and the reason she can give for all this extravagance and her carnival of a wedding. The divorce should be fascinating. I wonder who will get the cheetahs.

    • Julia K says:

      Hopefully the pre nup spells out who gets what. Can’t imagine a marriage for Paris without an iron clad document. She plays dumb but have read she is a savvy business woman.

  19. Hyperbolme says:

    I feel like these prices aren’t THAT crazy for people with their wealth. I would drop 150 for a wedding gift and these folks are 1000x richer than I am. That would be like them spending $150k, proportionally.

    My issue is more … Why? Like, does anyone believe Paris doesn’t buy things that she wants if the price range is $3500? No way. She’s buying three. It’s hard for me to believe there’s a whole registry worth of things she wants and doesn’t have already.

    • Eurydice says:

      Maybe she doesn’t really want all that particular stuff, maybe she just kept clicking on things. Afterward, she can return all the crap she doesn’t want in exchange for something else.

  20. ME says:

    Why does she even need a wedding registry? She’s so rich she should just tell everyone to donate to her favorite charity or something. This is tasteless. The only ones who maybe should give her a wedding gift are her closest family members and perhaps closest friends. It should be something sentimental and meaningful.

    • Emma says:

      I feel the same way. But I’m sure she still likes to open presents. I think she does support multiple charities regularly.

      I feel old because I remember the days before online registries. Of course I also remember bridal showers where you got three food processors!

  21. Lala11_7 says:

    I knew the MOMENT I saw the first show of “Lifestyle’s of the rich & famous” in 1984 & heard Robin Leach’s oily voice…that the mystique about being rich was OVA!

    Now it’s crass…because the people who flaunt their wealth like this are ALL cut from the same tacky cloth…and in a pandemic …this display is gross

  22. Maria says:

    Remember when she was engaged to Paris Latsis and she wrote the BRF begging for them to let her get married at St. Paul’s Cathedral or Westminster Abbey? LOL

  23. Valerie says:

    This is part of why I don’t buy it when people say that her shtick is just that. She’s a Hilton through and through.

  24. kimberly says:

    she truly looks happy, good for her❤❤

  25. BayTampaBay says:

    She ain’t having her reception at her grandfather’s Bel Air estate:

    “The Hilton family checked out of their longtime estate in Bel Air, but instead of a bill, they got $61.5 million.

    The sale of the 15,000-square-foot mansion at 1060 Brooklawn Drive marks the priciest deal of the year in California. The Los Angeles Times first reported the sale.

    The closing price was well below the property’s $75 million asking when it hit the market in November 2020.”

    • bettyrose says:

      Thanks for the address! Nothing I love more than the voyeuristic thrill of a real estate ad. I’ll never understand the homes of the uber rich, though. Why buy a Bel Air estate when what you want is a French chateau?

    • BeanieBean says:

      Ooh, that is something! I thank you for that address, too!

  26. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    One thing is certain. We can count on Paris to never ever change.

  27. bettyrose says:

    Why does she have a wedding registry at all, the point of which is to help a cash strapped young couple get a start in the world? Why not ask for donations to worthy causes instead? How much does Paris Hilton need to own?

  28. Same says:

    So what would the cut off be for having a registry ? Sorry, your six figure income precludes you from getting wedding gifts .

    I love registries because it’s easy on me as a shopper and I detest those who ask for cash, I’m not here to finance your honeymoon but you want that tacky crystal picture frame! I’m your girl .

    • bettyrose says:

      Just out of curiosity, what’s your objection to helping a couple pay for their honeymoon?

      • Same says:

        Now that you ask , I’m not sure I can articulate why. It seems tacky to me to ask friends to finance your vacation. Also when people ask for cash it’s like quiet score keeping – like I could have gotten you that $300 espresso machine with my 30% off coupon …

        I was in a wedding several years ago and listening to the couple going on about how much they expected per couple just left a bad taste … especially when someone came up short of the amount. To the surprise of no one they were disappointed in their haul.

      • bettyrose says:

        Yeah, that makes sense. I definitely get the thing about being able to buy a gift at a discount without the recipient knowing. My philosophy is that it depends on the recipient, though. If a couple is already living together and doesn’t need much in the way of home goods but can’t easily afford a honeymoon – or stretched the budget for the wedding at which I ate/drank for free – cash seems like a reasonable gift. But that scenario you describe is probably all too common.

  29. Christine says:

    This is the most delightfully frivolous gossip, and I am here for all of it. I LOVE looking at the registries of rich people. Also, I live in LA, and I’ve never heard of Geary’s of Beverly Hills. This is proper rich snobbery!

  30. JRenee says:

    10 dress changes in 1 day? Girl bye

  31. Lane says:

    I had a look at her registry and was surprised to see so much. I’d of thought she’s have all those things by now. Puts a different light on her, and I never thought of her this way, but it appears she’s extremely greedy.

  32. Rose says:

    I love it. Think about how many ridiculous expensive wedding gifts she’s had to buy for people over the years! Now it’s her turn. Get it!

  33. Elf says:

    This woman is completely pathetic. Famous for doing nothing. She is getting married just because she felt left behind.

  34. Kaykay says:

    I can’t with this troll.
    I’m not sure why she rubs me the wrong way, but I feel like she has no good intentions at all and that bothers me. Either she is playing a roll for the media or she is like this for real, either way it’s really really immature and so 2007. I feel like she feeds off of trolling people in a very unhealthy, sinister way.
