Kanye West wants a lavish wedding.
The 36-year-old rapper is adamant he wants a huge ceremony when he ties the knot with partner Kim Kardashian - who has previously been married to Damon Thomas and Kris Humphries - but she's insisting on having much smaller celebration as it will be her third marriage.
A source told Us Weekly magazine: ''Kanye has never been married before and wants a big wedding, so Kim is slowly getting used to the idea. He wants something really cool and big and over the top. It won't be cheesy though, there will be a real sense of design.''
Friends close to Kanye believe he's matured since welcoming his daughter, North, into the world in June and is content with his blossoming relationship.
The source explained: ''Kanye has been in love with Kim for years. He's so happy now and seriously into her. He has matured quickly and grown a lot. He seems more at peace, it's cool to see him so happy and calmed down.
''He has told friends and family that he was going to marry Kim since the day he met her. And he is determined to do it.''
