Beyonce Skips Kim And Kanye Wedding, Sends Congrats On Instagram

The Carters don't seem to have made the Kimye nuptials.

Although we fully expected Jay would make the best bachelor party host of all time as his homey Kanye prepared to jump the broom, it seems our fantasy of flowing D’usse, Cuban cigars and a GIANT castle was just that. Because As ‘Ye and his bride Kim Kardashian were exchanging vows in Italy, Mr. and Mrs. Carter appear to have been Stateside — getting ready for a Memorial Day weekend of grown-folks’ music and barbecue.

At least that’s what Beyonce‘s busy online activity on Saturday (May 24) leads us to believe. The “XO” singer debuted a summer look of golden-hued, waist-grazing micro-braids this morning, puckering up to the camera and dressed in a black tank that seemed not at all like wedding attire. Bey went on to post a playlist to her tumblr that showed she was gearing up to grill.

But our suspicions that the Carters had — like chief editor Anna Wintour — missed the “wedding of the year” were basically confirmed when Bey sent her Instragram congrats to the newlyweds, posting a photo from the couple’s April 2014 Vogue shoot. We presume that the wishes for a “lifetime of unconditional love” were implicitly signed with love from both the Carters.
