Kim Kardashian And Kanye West Tour The Palace Of Versailles As Possible Wedding Venue
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West visited the Palace of Versailles near Paris as a possible wedding venue, but their dream wedding might be blocked by the French government.
Kim Kardashian Planning A Summer Wedding
Kim recently sat down with Ellen DeGeneres and, while she didn’t mention Versailles, she did reveal that the newly engaged couple were hoping for a summer wedding abroad.
“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,” Kim said during her recent appearance on The Ellen Show where she also gushed about Kanye as a dad to their baby girl, North West.
Kim and Kanye were reportedly making the trip to attend various fashion shows and look at possible wedding venues. Though they have yet to decide on a wedding planner, sources say that the couple had a meeting at the Palace of Versailles, among other possible venues.
“They are going to spend a few days looking at weddings venues in and around Paris. They are also going to do some shopping. They are really excited to find the right place for their nuptials. They are looking at a summer wedding,” a source told E! News of the trip.
Kim And Kanye Tour The Palace Of Versailles
Sunday, Jan. 19, Kim posted a photo on her Instagram of the Palace of Versailles, the castle on the outskirts of Paris that housed King Louis XVI, the last king of France, and his infamous wife Marie Antoinette, seemingly confirming reports of a private tour.
Rumors of a Versailles wedding had already been circulating before the trip, and now it seems that Versailles just may be the location of the Kimye wedding. The duo reportedly loved their tour of the Palace and spoke to a Versailles official about possible party plans.
“They were both in [over] the weekend chatting about the food on offer, what the weather might be like, and how many people they can fit in the palace… both were amazed at how incredible it looks when nobody else is around,” a source told E! News.
Kim may not get her dream wedding in Versailles, however, as the Palace is owned by the French government and operated as a sort of museum and does not regularly rent out the castle for weddings. In fact, the government reportedly already denied their request to be married at the Palace of Versailles.
“It would just have been too intrusive for visitors to the Palace, and the staff. Kim and Kanye really wanted to get married at Versailles and were both hoping to persuade officials during their visit… ultimately it backfired. It was still a firm no,” a source revealed.
Though it looks like Kim and Kanye won’t be able to get married in the Palace of Versailles, the power couple is still looking at venues in Paris.
