Imaginations run wild as the Kimye wedding countdown continues, and rumors are running amok as to where the hitching will go down.

In an interview on Friday with Florence’s La Nazione newspaper, via the Daily Mail, Kanye dropped some pretty heavy hints that the wedding would be held there. “I adore Florence. I love Italy and the Italian lifestyle,” the 36-year-old rapper said. “To tell you the truth, I already came to the banks of the (Arno) river with Kim last year. Just the two of us, incognito. I think that our daughter North was conceived here among the Renaissance masterpieces.”
Making it official at the site where your child was conceived could be especially meaningful, and a Kimye insider told Entertainment Tonight earlier this week that the ceremony would be in Italy as well. The source claimed that the couple will host a dinner in Paris and then shuttle all of their guests to the main event in Florence.
However, E! News caught word today that the ceremony will actually be held in Versailles. The venue switch may be influenced by a French air traffic controllers’ strike, which has all but paralyzed air travel in and out of the country. Another source reports that Kardashian and West have been told their private planes get last priority out of the airport, according to Radar Online. This has apparently left Kardashian distraught and convinced that her “wedding feels jinxed.”
But is all the media hype for naught? There’s even a nugget of gossip that Kardashian and West have already exchanged vows right at home in California. “Kim and Kanye are now married on paper,” a source told Life & Style magazine last week. Kardashian has since squelched that rumor on Twitter.
One couple that we know are definitely not concerning themselves with the whereabouts of the Kimye wedding: Jay Z and Beyoncé. The Sun reported in late April that the music industry power couple declined Kimye’s wedding invitation because they felt it was too public, and they did not want to be filmed for the Keeping Up with the Kardashians TV show.
