There are two things we can be certain of if rumors of a May 24, 2014, Paris, France, Kimye wedding are true — it will not be a small, intimate affair as these two are claiming because they don't know the meaning of those words, and Americans will be ticked that these two are spending their vast American-earned wedding funds in France (of all places!). This betrothed couple can also expect some shade to be thrown their way for distracting the American public from Memorial Day celebrations that honor veterans.
According to Magic Horoscope, the best days for Kimye to get married, based on their birth dates, are April 1 — April 6, April 8 — April 14 and April 30. Oops. At least now they have an iron-clad excuse to fall back on if — by remote chance — this marriage doesn't stick.
