Reality star Kim Kardashian and rapper Kanye West are planning a lavish wedding in France, but it won’t cost her a penny.
The “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” star is planning a an elaborate French wedding, which sources revealing it will take place in June.
Kim, 33, talked her rapper fiance into having their wedding filmed for television so they won’t have to pay for it. Classy!
A source said, “Kim has always wanted to be a June bride and she is finally going to get her wish. Kim and Kanye have narrowed down the wedding location, which is being kept a secret at this point. It will be on the outskirts of Paris.”
You’d think Kim would have learned better after her last televised wedding to Kris Humphries. But, we guess not!
Kim Kardashian made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel’s show last week, saying, “We will be getting married this summer, hopefully, in Paris. We love it there.”
Kim sees many benefits to having their big day filmed and the E! staff would take care of security issues, including taking cell phones from guests.
Kardashian filmed her last wedding to Kris Humphries in August 2011 for a four-hour special on E!, for which she received a whopping $15 million.
An insider close to the couple said, “Even though Kim’s marriage to Kris was a disaster, she was very happy with how the wedding and reception turned out. Both Kim and Kanye have very high expectations for their wedding. It will be an over-the-top affair and there will be pre-wedding festivities leading up to the big day for their guests. It’ll be like a festival.”
Kim and Kanye wanted to hold their wedding at the Palace Of Versailles. She posted a photo of them standing in front of the building on January 19, captioning the pictures, “Versailles after dark.”
The source adds, “Kim and Kanye really wanted to get married at Versailles and were both hoping to persuade officials during their visit there… ultimately it backfired. It was still a firm no. The couple is looking for something grand, but something that can offer privacy and security.”
