So If Kim Kardashian And Kanye West Aren't Marrying At Versailles, What CAN We Expect?

GALLERY >> What to expect from the Kimye wedding

1. The guests

A Who’s Who of Hollywood, New York, Paris, London…

When it comes to the guestlist it would perhaps be quicker to list who hasn’t been invited. ‘From Carine Roitfeld to Anna Wintour this will be one high end event,’ said a source, ‘Alexander Wang and Phoebe Philo of Celine have also been invited.’ Friends say that the company of Lionel Ritchie, John Mayer, Beyonce and Jay Z with Drake, The Osbournes and Cheryl Cole will also be requested. Insiders say each guest will be gifted with a specially created perfume that will ‘smell’ like the Big Day.

2. The Venue

It’s hard work choosing a castle....

There are rumours Kimye are planning several celebrations, however, it is now thought they have settled on France for the main event. Having sadly discovered they could not rent The Palace of Versailles, sources say that the couple are now torn between two Chateaus in the Loire Valley: the beautiful Chateau Challain and the equally stunning Chateau D’Usse – the actual castle where the Sleeping Beauty legend was born.

3. The Dresses

Three dresses, a ‘Wang ban’, Beckham for bridesmaids and 4am workouts...

For Kim one dress will simply not suffice. ‘Kim will have one formal, one party and an after-party dress,’ said a source, ‘It is likely they will be designed – with Kanye’s help – by Valentino and Ricardo Tisci of Givenchy.’ Our insiders say that Kanye is keen for the party dress to feature, ‘lots of cleavage!’ There will be no Vera Wang though, ‘Kim wore Vera when she married Kris Humphries – therefore Kanye has banned her designs.’ There are also rumours that Kim wants Victoria Beckham to design the bridesmaid’s dresses, but VB is thought not to be so keen. And Kim is indulging in some serious workouts in preparation, ‘She’s been getting up as early as 4am to go to the gym for three hours before she starts work. She wants to get down to 8 stone, so she’s got about 7lbs to lose.’

4. The Inspiration

Kopy Kates and Kanye’s Krest...

Whilst sources say the overall mood will be ‘white and bling,’ there is also somewhat of a ‘Kopy-Kate’ theme going on, taking inspiration from three of our favourite K’s; Kate Middleton, Katie Holmes and Kate Moss. Kim has always been a fan of our future Queen, and she plans to pay tribute on her own Big Day. ‘Kim wants to have an exact replica of the diamond tiara Kate wore to the Royal wedding, Kanye is also working on designing a family crest – much like the Middleton’s did.’ Katie Holmes fairy-tale Italian wedding to Tom Cruise in 2006 is also said to be the inspiration for the castle venue. And from Kate Moss? Kim wants Mossy’s wedding photographer, Mario Testino. ‘Kim loved the ethereal photographs Mario created for Kate and Jamie Hince.’ However, Kanye might have an issue with this, ‘Kanye wants David LaChapelle to do the pictures.’ Eek!

5. The Catering

Mind your teeth on those diamonds...

Why there will be an endless champagne fountain, of course! And the cake? The couple are said to have been particularly taken by a creation by Mimi So Jewellers and Nahid La Patisserie Artistique. The two Beverley Hills based companies once collaborated on a $20millon masterpiece festooned in diamonds. Kim and Kanye want something similar. Totally inedible of course, thanks to its bejewelled nature it is thought to be the most expensive wedding cake ever made. Perfect!

Well, we'll tell you one place Kim Kardashian and Kanye West won't be getting married and that's the palace of Versailles. Ever since the pair got engaged last October the rumour mill has been in overdrive as to where they might choose to tie the knot. One of the places most hotly tipped was the Palace of Versailles - just outside of Paris. However, despite the couple visiting the famous venue this week - they have now tweeted to say they will NOT be getting married there.

The official Twitter account wrote, 'On 19th January @KimKardashian and @kanyewest visited the Palace of Versailles but they are not planning their wedding at the Palace.' Well way to ruin their fun guys! Kim recently revealed that the couple are planning a summer wedding. Telling chat show host Ellen, 'It will be this summer. Somewhere out of the country. We honestly haven’t picked a date yet. We said when we were on our trip skiing this New Year’s that we were going to pick the date and location, and that hasn’t happened. We know we want it in the summer time, but we just (have) to figure that out.'

Here at Grazia we recently had a little word with our Kardashian sources to find out exactly what could go down at Kimye's extravaganza. Note: It's not going to be a small affair. Click through the gallery above for a taster of what's to come...
