Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s wedding weekend is in full swing. Photos from the pre-wedding dinner at Versailles on Friday and preparations for the May 24 ceremony in Florence, Italy have already surfaced on the Web.
Photos of the star-studded event, including pictures of singer Lana Del Ray prior to her performance inside Versailles, have been posted on Instagram as well as on gossip sites, TMZ and US Weekly. If Del Ray’s musical performance wasn’t enough to make this the event of the year, TMZ reports that Kim and Kanye had magician David Blaine roaming around the pre-wedding dinner entertaining guests.
On Saturday, guests left Paris and jetted off to Florence, Italy where they will attend the much anticipated wedding ceremony that is rumored to be held at Florence's Forte di Belvedere.
A source tells US that the wall is not your ordinary wedding ceremony backdrop. A source tells US, “The blooms include white gardenias, white peonies and white roses from Paris and Belgium” and it took two workers to construct the magnificent backdrop.
In addition to the over-the-top wall of flowers, the US Weekly’s sources state that the reception will include a marble banquet table that is almost 230 feet long that will give guests a great view of the Florence skyline. In addition, there is supposedly a massive dance floor in the garden of the venue where Kim and Kanye will dance for the first time as husband and wife on Saturday night.
There is no clear report on the time of the wedding, although US reports that guests should start arriving at the assumed ceremony location, Forte di Belvedere, at 6 p.m. local time. For those keeping track, the time difference in Italy is six hours ahead of the east coast of the US.
TMZ reports that while Jay Z and Beyonce are on the guest list, they did not show up at the pre-wedding dinner on Friday. Kim Kardashian’s entire family, including sisters Khloe and Kourtney are there for the big event.
Brody Jenner, the son of Kim’s stepfather, Bruce Jenner who will walk Kim down the aisle for the second time, is reportedly not attending the nuptials. NY Daily News reports that Kim’s stepbrother will not attend because he has to DJ an event, but there’s likely more to that story, including rumors that he refuses to attend because the invitations didn’t include a “plus one,” better known as a guest.
