Well, all that buzz is about to come to a deafening roar this weekend because the wedding of the year is about to kick off — and everyone’s dying to know the details. Where will the wedding take place? Who’s on the guest list? What will Kim wear?! We’ve rounded up everything we know so far, plus a bit of speculation, about the big day for the #worldsmosttalkedaboutcouple.
The Kardashians took over Paris this week, shopping, hitting the gym and enjoying all the sights the City of Light has to offer. However, Kim and Kanye will officially say “I do” on Saturday, May 24, in Italy, according to reports and a posh invite that hit the ’Net.
We are talking about Kim and Kanye, so there’s no way one day would be enough for the wedding festivities. In fact, Friday is just the start. Famed designer Valentino Garavani will reportedly host a pre-rehearsal brunch for the couple and the bridal party at his castle just outside of Paris.
Kimye, according to their invitation, will then have dinner in Paris at 6 o’clock followed by a private tour of the Palace of Versailles for their guests.
From there, it’s still a bit unclear, but E! News is reporting that the wedding will be held in the famed castle of Versailles. Still, the evidence seems to support several other sources, which are saying that guests will be flown from Paris to Florence, Italy.
A spokeswoman from the mayor’s office in Florence released a statement confirming that Kimye had booked the historic Belvedere Fort for the ceremony. Plus, workers were seen apparently handling preparations for the event.
The Wedding Gown
It’s the million-dollar question: What will Kim wear? The reality TV star did tease in her Vogue cover story that she would have “multiple costume changes,” so it’s really anyone’s guess, but let’s try!
First up is Valentino. This is probably the most logical guess, since the couple are having a pre-wedding brunch with the designer. Also, several workers from his Paris store were photographed arriving at Kimye’s Paris apartment on Wednesday with garment bags filled with clothes.
But don’t count out Kardashian family friend Vera Wang because the designer previously created three dresses for Kim’s 2011 wedding to Kris Humphries. Then there’s Lanvin, which Kim wore to the Met Gala, and Givenchy, headed up by Kanye’s close friend/creative director Riccardo Tisci. Kim was spotted leaving the Givenchy showroom earlier this week with her sisters.
The Bridal Party
Most likely all of Kim’s sisters — Kourtney, Khloe, Kendall and Kylie — will serve as bridesmaids, but as for Kanye’s groomsmen? That’s still a mystery. OK! reported that his best man would be “Gold Digger” collaborator Jamie Foxx, while others are saying it could be Jay Z.
The A-List Guest List
Kim has said multiple times that the wedding will be “small and intimate,” so that means unless you’re really tight with Kimye, chances are you didn’t get the invite. Some of the superstar pals that could be in attendance include Jay Z and Beyoncé, John Legend and Chrissy Teigen, Vogue editor Anna Wintour and Oprah.
And let’s not forget about Kim’s BFFs: Lala Anthony, Brittny Gastineau, Robin Antin, Jonathan Cheban and Ciara, who may have to sit this one out since she just had a baby.
There’s no doubt Kanye will pull out all of the stops to make this the MOST ROMANTIC WEDDING OF ALL TIME, and one of the ways he might do that is to get Lana Del Rey to perform. Lana is reportedly set to sing her hit “Young & Beautiful,” which just so happenS to be the song a 50-piece orchestra played while Kanye proposed to Kim in October.
Oh, and keep your eyes to the sky, because there could be fighter jets.
All Signs Point West
Once the happy couple say their “I do’s,” Kim will have a name change. The reality star, who has said stepdad Bruce Jenner will walk her down the aisle, will now be known as Kim Kardashian West. It’s got a nice ring to it.
When Can We See It?
Well, you can’t. Kim made it perfectly clear on Twitter that they were not filming their wedding for the next season of “Keeping Up With the Kardashian’s.” But look on the bright side: Kim did say they will be filming everything leading up to and after the nuptials.
