In a completely unsurprising turn of events, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are rumored to be planning a wedding fit for royalty. The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star and her rapper fiancé are reportedly considering the Palace of Versailles –the epitome of extravagance – as a venue for their nuptials. Is anyone surprised by this? Because, duh. This is Kimye. Of course they’re not going to go with a church or candlelit barn like any regular ol’ bride and groom.
Sources close to the couple say they’ve got their eye on the Palace of Versailles, which is one of France’s most iconic landmarks. The former residence of Marie Antoinette boasts 700 rooms, 67 staircases and over 1,200 chimneys. Whoa.That’s an accident waiting to happen, if you ask me. Let’s hope Kim and Yeezy make their guests sign a waiver that if they get lost in the palace, it’s on them. Because an open bar plus 700 rooms equals a strong possibility of somebody’s loved ones having to file a missing persons report.
But I digress…let’s get back to the wedding. Details are still scarce, but an insider did reveal that Kim and Kanye “are not working with a budget.”They also said that Kanye wants to go all out (again, duh) since this is his first time getting married.Of course, it’s kind of a “been there, done that” situation for Kim, who famously dropped $10 million on her wedding to Kris Humphries in 2011 only to have it end in divorce after 72 days. But what Yeezy wants, Yeezy gets. Just look at how he proposed to Kim back in October. He rented out an entire stadium, hired a huge orchestra and presented her with a massive diamond ring that may or may not result in finger arthritis later in her life.
Anyway, my point is, this is gonna be big. Like BIG big. Kanye West, artistic genius extraordinaire, is planning it, so of course it’s going to be over the top. And it’s not like Kim Kardashian prefers the simple things in life, either. The Palace of Versailles is only the beginning.
So what are your thoughts on what is sure to be the most epic wedding in the history of weddings? Do you think it’s totally absurd, or just as you expected? And most importantly, will we get to see any wedding planning on the next season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians when it airs in January? Tell us in the comment section below!
