Kim and Kanye's wedding weekend rumor rundown


If you've had a hard time Keeping Up with the Kimye Nuptials, you're not alone. 

The world's most-watched couple, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, will finally profess their love for one another this weekend. (Via E! / "Keeping Up with the Kardashians"Vogue)

So where is it? Somewhere in Europe. Guests are already arriving in Paris Friday for the multipart wedding. People confirms they'll be treated to a private tour of the Palace of Versailles, once rumored to be the wedding venue until common sense intervened and France collectively said, "No." (Via Wikimedia Commons / Taxiarchos228ToucanWingsToucanWings)

Around 3 p.m. Friday, guests will get a text with the rest of the itinerary, according to Us Weekly.  

This includes hopping onto private jets destined for Florence, Italy, the actual site of the wedding. Forte di Belvedere will host the lavish ceremony. Reported price to reserve the 16th century chateau: $410,000. (Via Flickr / Andy Rusch / Bruce StokesLDM News)

So who is coming? The Internet really has no idea. A survey of sites shows there will be somewhere between 150 and 1,600 and 3,000 guests in attendance.

However, Radar Online is certain the venue will cap it at 200. All eyes are on one power couple in particular: Jay-Z and Beyonce. Us Weekly says Jay-Z will be there as best man, but several sources report Beyonce's definitely a "maybe." (Via YouTube / Jay Z's Life+Times)

Other timely invitees include fashion designer Rachel Roy, the rumored cause of the Jay-Z-Solange Knowles elevator situation. However, a source told Hollywood Life Kanye's "not worried" about another fight. (Via YouTube / Rachel Roy)

Entertainmentwise writes Vogue editor Anna Wintour snagged an invite but declined. Not surprised, she once infamously admitted she never wanted to see the couple on the cover of her magazine.  

Brody Jenner will reportedly not attend. He has a gig in Chicago that night. (Via MTV / "The Hills," Home Bar Chicago)

But TMZ puts it plainly:​ "It's hard to buy he needs the money so bad ... that he'd skip a party as big as Kim's wedding. Then again ... it is her third time." 

Kim's dress reportedly cost $2 million to make. Also, Daily Mail says the Italian army has been called in for extra security. (Via Flickr / Maegan TintariWikimedia Commons / Utente:Jollyroger)

The Washington Post gets the last laugh, saying: "The most hilarious rumor of all…Kanye and Kim banned cameras from the wedding. Ha! Oh wait, E! cameramen will still be there, just for the before and after, but not the actual ceremony."
