It’s already been called “the wedding of the century.”
The upcoming marriage ceremony set for next month uniting Kanye West and Kim Kardashian will undoubtedly be an occasion that the couple will never forget, along with many excellent ratings for parent company E!.
The network will likely make the scheduled spring wedding in Paris into a super special occasion, maybe even a multi-part episode showing every remotely interesting detail leading up to the ceremony, the event itself and the post-nuptial highlights.
The only possible hitch in this television home run that’s already being called “The Royal Wedding” is coming from the City of Love, which requires that at least one member of a couple be living there at least 40 days before the country of France can issue a civil marriage license. Only once this license is received can a religious ceremony take place.
Although Kanye owns an apartment in Paris, he rarely stays there, and there’s online proof that neither of them have been living anywhere consistently for the past few months. Both of them have been spending recent days at different points around the world.
Kanye, for instance, has been touring promoting his Yesus album, although the Daily Mail reported that he has postponed the upcoming Australian leg to focus on upcoming wedding duties. Kim was also recently spotted in Thailand.
The couple told RadarOnline that they only recently became aware of the French residency policy, which the country’s embassy says can’t be waived.
But they also have told fans recently that the May wedding is still very much on, and that any rumors that they were calling things off, changing the location or delaying it to meet the requirements were all untrue.
They have, however, shared some interesting details about the wedding.
In an interview with Ryan Seacrest, Kim said people will be surprised how small and intimate the actual wedding will be, rather than the massive crush of humanity that some fully expect. Even the engagement brought together hundreds of their friends into a stadium, not to mention a full orchestra.
