Kim Kardashian is having two wedding parties this Saturday (23.07.11).

The reality TV star is getting set for her marriage to basketball star Kris Humphries with a bridal shower in Los Angeles in the afternoon - organised by her mother, Kris Jenner – before flying to Las Vegas with her sister, Khloe, and friends for her bachelorette party.

Kim and her finace are having joint parties in the Palazzo hotel's Tao and Lavo clubs on the same night, but aren't planning to meet up.

Kim told the E! news service: "My party is going to be over in Tao and it will be fun, we're not going to see [Kris] the whole time, but it will be a good night."

The 30-year-old beauty also said she was looking forward to letting her hair down at the weekend, as she has worked so hard planning her wedding – the date of which has yet to be confirmed.

She added: "Wedding planning I would say it's fun but its stressful, there's so much that has to be done. But it's moving along really well."

One of Kim's oldest friends, Brittny Gastineau, will be attending Saturday's Vegas party, and said she keeps getting overcome with emotion when she talks about the wedding.

She said: "The other day I was crying, I was like 'oh my god this is so emotional for me,' as we've been friends for so long and we've spoke about getting married for so many years, and now it's happening.

"I was crying, because I can't believe it."
