Kim and Kanye send guests on Versailles tour
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's wedding guests will be given a private tour of the Palace of Versailles in Paris before flying to Italy for the nuptials.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are treating their wedding guests to a private tour of the Palace of Versailles.
The couple - who were refused permission to marry at the Paris landmark - will be joined by friends and family members to visit such sights as the Hall of Mirrors, the King's Grand Apartments and formal gardens with fountains and water attractions on Friday (23.05.14), the day before they tie the knot.
An official statement from the couple and officials at the palace said: ''Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have decided to let their guests discover the Château of Versailles during a private surprise tour on Friday, May 23, the eve of their wedding.''
Before the tour, fashion designer Valentino Garavani will host a brunch for the couple and a few friends and family members at his 17th-century Château de Wideville, which is situated just outside Paris.
According to the New York Post newspaper, the wedding guests will then be flown via private jet to Florence, Italy, for the big day on Saturday (24.05.14), which will take place at Fort Belvedere.
Everyone attending the nuptials will receive special mobile phones, as their regular handsets will be taken away, and personal security.
Meanwhile, 'Video Games' hitmaker Lana Del Rey - who turned down a request to perform at Kanye's lavish proposal last October - has reportedly agreed a six-figure pay deal to perform Kim's favourite song ' Young and Beautiful' at the wedding.
A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: ''Kanye knew how much Kim loved Lana's music, which is why he tried to get her to perform at the proposal.
''So he upped the offer to perform at the wedding and told Lana that it's his and Kim's special song and it would mean so much to have her perform it. She couldn't say no.''
The wedding is not being filmed for Kim's reality show 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians', and though the Friday brunch is expected to be covered on Vogue's website, the magazine will not carry any of the wedding pictures.
