Lunch at Valentino's pad followed by dinner at a little known (ahem) French place called the Palace of Versailles. Anyone else get the distinct impression that Kimye's day before their BIG day was actually bigger than the average joe's big day?!?
Indeed, last night Kim (wearing a white Maison Martin Margiela tuxedo jacket dress) and Kanye (cream suit - with an exposed chest to rival his wife-to-be's) were joined by family and friends at the historical landmark for a pre-wedding dinner.

Rumour has it, the pair had set their hearts on having their actual wedding ceremony at the Palace. But way back in January officials at the former home of Marie Antoinette took the unprecedented step of denying (in French and English on twitter) all talk of a Kardashian/West union on their turf!
But that didn't appear to matter because the pair well and truly made the most of having the place for their rehearsal dinner. They welcomed their 100 guests (who all arrived in a convoy of 90 black limos at 7pm on the dot) in the iconic Hall of Mirrors room where Lana del Ray serenaded Kim with her song Young and Beautiful (apparently at the request of Kanye) and fireworks exploded into the sky outside! Wow!
But that isn't all...there were horses with yellow feathered plumes dotted along the driveway as guests drove in, musicians dressed as Marie Antoinette (see what they did there) and a menu including a thousand bottles of champagne, salmon and multi tiered cakes with white and silver macaroons for pudding!
But perhaps most importantly, there was confirmation of the worst kept secret of the wedding so far - that Kimye ARE getting married in Florence today! Although, when Kanye announced the news to his guests he was meant to just say Italy not the exact location! Don't worry Kim we kind of all knew anyway...
