Former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Taylor Armstrong and new husband John Bluher didn’t have to worry about the cost of their recent lavish wedding and reception, and the newlyweds didn’t cough up a penny for anything, because the festivities were filmed and paid for by WETV’s My Fair Wedding, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
The wedding and reception took place last Friday at the exclusive Bel Air Bay Club in Pacific Palisades, Calif. and Armstrong wore a Chagoury Couture wedding dress, with Jimmy Choo shoes and didn’t “have to pay for any of it. Taylor is extremely savvy and knew if she agreed to have the wedding and reception filmed, she wouldn’t have to pay for any of it. The production company for My Fair Wedding picked up the tab for everything,” an insider told Radar.
“Many guests questioned why Taylor and John decided to get married on a Friday night….this was because it wasn’t their choice. It was much cheaper for the production company to pay for the wedding to take place on a weeknight, as opposed to a weekend. Celebrity wedding planner David Tutera worked with Taylor to pull off the wedding, and she didn’t pay for his services either.”
As Radar previously reported, Armstrong made a rambling speech at the wedding reception that made many of her guests uncomfortable.
During a rambling speech, Taylor “reflected on [her ex-husband] Russell [Armstrong] and the domestic violence she suffered by his hands,” a source told Radar.
“It was like she was an ad for the company,” the source said. “She basically said ‘After my husband committed suicide I knew I needed to get back in shape,’ and it was really strange.”
Our source added, “Taylor is hoping to get a free honeymoon to a warm tropical destination in exchange for further publicity.
“This is the main reason why John and Taylor didn’t take a honeymoon after the wedding. No one was offering it, but she is hopeful that will change!”
