Cardi B and Offset will be married “foreva” because divorce is not an option for the female emcee.
In a recent interview with BBC Radio One, the “Bodak Yellow” rapper said her wedding to Offset — member of the hip-hop trio Migos — will be the only time she’ll walk down the aisle, therefore she’s dropping major bank.
“We’re going to spend over a million,” she told Charlie Sloth.
Cardi, 25, said she doesn’t expect nor wants Offset to cover most of the expenses because her dress will eat up most of the budget.
“I don’t think that will be fair [to let Offset pay],” she said. “I don’t like putting all that responsibility on my man. No, it’s a partnership.”
She added, “And I feel like my expenses is going to be more expensive than his. I feel like my wedding dress itself is going to be at least $50,000… it’s got to be extravagant.”
Cardi B also said she wants to start a family with her rapper babe in two years. Offset is already the father of three children from previous relationships.
The two began dating earlier this year after meeting at an industry event. Offset pursued Cardi B relentlessly and made good on his word that he’d one day marry her when he proposed at concert tour stop in late October.
Shortly after the proposal, TMZ reported that TV networks BET, VH1, and WETV were all interested in broadcasting the nuptials.
Cardi B has a history with VH1 as she appeared on “Love and Hip-Hop: New York” in 2015. She left the reality series to focus on her burgeoning rap career and it looked to have paid off.
She scored her first Billboard number one hit with “Bodak Yellow,” becoming the first female rapper to do so in more than two decades.
The Bronx native has found fame difficult, telling New York Magazine stardom isn’t all what it’s cracked up to be.
“You be seeing these artists going through their meltdowns and [expletive] [expletive], and you be like, Why you doing all of that? You’re famous, you’re a fucking millionaire, why? [Expletive], I’m broke, I want to shave my head,” she told the publication.

She went on to say, “Then when you in those shoes, it’s just like, I see why people go crazy. This [expletive] is not what it [expletive] seems. But I can’t complain….Music never felt like a job. Now it’s just like people waiting to see if I fail. I just want to be an artist, I don’t want to be no [expletive] queen. I wanna hear myself everywhere. I would do [expletive] elevator music. I’ll do something that brings me a check. The faster I make a lot of money, the faster I can have these kids I want.”
