Kim Kardashian, Kanye West wedding: Guests touch down in Italy ahead of nuptials


The Kim Kardashian, Kanye West wedding festivities have taken flight as the Hollywood couple and their hundreds of guests have touched down in Italy for the highly anticipated ceremony.

The pair are set to say “I do” at Florence’s Forte di Belvedere around 6 pm Saturday while their star-studded attendees look on.

The décor for the lavish affair includes a spectacular wall of flowers, just like the Mother’s Day present gifted to Kardashian by her future husband earlier this month, Us Weekly reported.


“The blooms include white gardenias, white peonies and white roses from Paris and Belgium,” a source told the mag.

After the couple officially exchange vows, guests will reportedly sit together at a 70-metre-long marble banquet table looking over the skyline of Florence.

The twosome plunked down $420,000 to rent the restored Italian garrison, which was built by Grand Duke Ferdinando I de’ Medici in 1590.

Ahead of the big day, West and Kardashian celebrated their rehearsal dinner in a separate country at France’s iconic Palace of Versailles with 600 guests.


The 33-year-old bride stunned in a white plunging neckline dress for the extravagant event.

Her groom, who surprised Kardashian with a performance by one of her favorite singers, Lana Del Rey, made a touching speech about his wife-to-be.

“He was telling everyone stories until Kim said, ‘OK, let everyone drink and do their thing now,'” a source told Us.


“Kanye kept making the cutest remarks to her. He said, ‘It’s amazing to look around this room, there are so many talented people,'” the source continued.

“Then Kim said, ‘And beautiful people.'” ‘Yeah, but Kim’s way more beautiful than I am talented,’ West continued, it was so sweet — he said a couple adorable things like that. They seemed so happy.”
