Are Kim Kardashian & Kanye planning no fewer than three wedding ceremonies?


Does anyone know the whereabouts of Kanye West these days? I think he might still be in Paris, finalizing the wedding plans and establishing the necessary 40-day residency in France he and Kim will need before they marry. But it doesn’t matter, really, because I just can’t figure out how Kim and Kanye’s French wedding will be in any way legal. They must have come to that conclusion too, because Radar says that Kim and Kanye will be getting married in LA first, then on to France where it will just be a showbiz-y wedding that “doesn’t count.”

For Kim Kardashian, more is always more. The reality star, who wed ex husband Kris Humphries in a lavish $10 million ceremony, will marry third husband Kanye West three times— once in Southern California and twice in France— is exclusively reporting.

To avoid long lines and red tape, a source tells, the couple’s lawyers recommended they hold a civil ceremony in the United States prior to their French nuptials on May 24. “Typically, the U.S. recognizes citizens getting married in France, but dealing with a foreign government and paperwork could be a nightmare,” the insider explains. “So just to make sure it’s legal, Kim and Kanye will first be having a civil ceremony in Southern California.”

Next, the couple will cross the Atlantic for their dream ceremony in Paris— and French law dictates that there be two wedding ceremonies.

“A religious ceremony has to be performed after a civil ceremony, never before,” the French Embassy in Washington D.C. explains to “The minister, priest or rabbi will require a certificate of civil marriage before any religious ceremony takes place.”

According to a new report, the high-profile couple recently scouted a new location for their main event— the 17th-century, Louis XIV-commissioned Chateau de Louveciennes.

“Kim will have at least three dress changes on the big ceremony day in France,” a source tells “It will be over the top. Kim and Kanye want it to be the wedding of the century.”

But there may be a snag in their grand plans— According to various statutes in France, at least one of the parties has to have resided in the country for at least 40 days prior to the wedding.

“Kim and Kanye were unaware until recently that France required a residency requirement prior to marriage,” a Kardashian source tells RadarOnline. “Kanye has an apartment in Paris, but he doesn’t live there full-time.”

We’ll see. The thing is, I doubt they need France to recognize their wedding anyway. I mean, sure, they can try to follow the rules and everything and we’ll see if that works. But America is already going to recognize their marriage no matter what. They’re both American citizens, they’ll have all of the paperwork and if there’s one thing we know about Kim, it’s that she’s got access to tons of great lawyers (many of whom were friends with her dad). They’ll be fine. I am interested in seeing what Yeezington has planned though. It will be a spectacle, I’m sure.

    thanks for reposting the awful outfit trifecta. lol

  2. Loopy says:

    LOL dead at the last pic, you just had to show that ghastly skirt.

  3. idk says:

    I read a story the other day where Kanye asked Franco and Rogen to perform Bound 2 in person at a party the night before the wedding but Franco declined (he spoke about this in an interview so I’m assuming this story is true…but then again…).

    Also, yeah they would be planning 3 separate wedding ceremonies so Kanye can catch up with all of Kim’s previous wedding ceremonies.

  4. Inconceivable! says:

    Three ceremonies for the third marriage. I’m sure she will have four ceremonies next time!

  5. Audrey says:

    Do they not realize that nobody cares?

  6. ~Z~ says:

    Saw a comment on the Superficial that said that skirt looks like elephant hide!!!! Sure does!
    Oh wait, did they mean she’s hiding an elephant in the skirt?

  7. Elisabeth says:

    the divorce is going to be spectacular

  8. word says:

    I’m more interested in seeing what Kanye will wear to the wedding. Also, have they sent out the invites yet? Why hasn’t PMK leaked one to the press yet?

    Does anyone think Kanye also picked out the bridesmaids dresses?

    I wonder if Rob will attend? He’s been hiding out for so long.

  9. FingerBinger says:

    Wow at that first picture. I hardly ever see Kim and Kanye smile or even look like they enjoy being in each other’s company.

  10. nenou says:

    i just want to say that french law doesn’t require two ceremonies! only the civil one is necessary

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      I wondered about that, because what if you weren’t religious?

    • Ag says:

      yeah, i was also thinking that that’s a misleading/unclear statement. the civil one is required, and you can’t do a religious one without the civil one, BUT you can do a civil one without a religious one. sadly, i think most people’s minds can’t digest the fact that a lot of people don’t want/don’t have a religious ceremony. :)

    • Lucky Charm says:

      But if they have a civil ceremony in the US, wouldn’t that be accepted in France for their “religious” ceremony? Then there wouldn’t be any need for the 40 day residency requirement or the French civil ceremony. But I don’t know French law and just have no interest in looking it up for these two. Now if it was Brad and Angelina getting married in France…

      • reddy says:

        I don’t get it either…if they get legally married in the us, how can it be that they can get married again in France? Can you just get married as much as you want? Two legal ceremonies? I was going through the comments to find out if someone explained it, but no luck so far.

    • eva k says:

      …and the civil ceremony doesn’t have to be an actual “ceremony”. It just involves signing papers in front of a witness.

  11. bettyrose says:

    So help me I love the dress in the first picture.

  12. Dawn says:

    It doesn’t matter if it his idea or hers. She has been married twice and the last wedding was a sham for ratings and to add to her bank account. You may think I am mean but having yet one more over the top wedding is so low class to me. She married Humphries and made a fool of him by saying no to an annulment yet getting pregnant with North while holding up the divorce. I mean come on North was born a little less than a month after she signed her divorce papers. It is up to her to settle Kanye down and to have a more low-key wedding. They are in their thirties and already have a kid. And they wonder why people don’t like them, it is always the same old arrogant and smug crap with these two. Nothing is ever just civilized and classy. Yuk.

  13. Inlike says:

    Nooo. You showed that butt picture again. That’s just wrong. Looks like she pooped inside her skirt. C’mon it’s Friday.

  14. stinky says:

    Daily Mail comments are funny on this one ….

  15. Krista says:

    HAHAHA, Jay and Bey must be available to attend at least ONE of these ceremonies, right?!
    I think that’s Kim’s plan!

  16. Size Does Matter says:

    Called it. Yay me!

    Funny in the pics of them together it looks like they couldn’t possibly be going to the same place. She’s getting paid to wear these awful clothes, I just know it.

  17. idk says:

    Has Kourtney confirmed baby #3 yet? You can clearly see she’s pregnant and has put on weight. I wonder if they are waiting until the season premiere of their show to announce it? She’s gotta be more than 3 months a long. I could be totally wrong though…who knows.

    I think the wedding will be the first time we see both Kim and Kanye dressed up at the same time lol. Normally she’s super dressed up while he’s super casual.

  18. Megan says:

    All her outfits look itchy to me.

  19. jwoolman says:

    I suggest they give up the idea of having an official French wedding (pretty pointless for foreigners anyway) and just have a wedding privately (if Kim can bear that idea) in the US. Then they can renew their vows in France if their marriage lasts more than 72 days.

    I know, I should hire myself out as wedding planner for the stars.

  20. Sloane Wyatt says:

    Kim looks like a Goth doily.

  21. Shiksa Goddess says:

    I love that in the first picture Kayne is staring lovingly at the outfit and not at her.

  22. Damaris says:

    Kim does not settle down. Kanye will soon find this out after their marriage has aged a few weeks. She got bored with Kris. She got bored with North “IgNori”. She’ll get bored of Kanye. Credit me with this post when I go on Yahoo! a year from now and their divorce is the main article.

    • swack says:

      She wouldn’t even let Kris H move his things into her home in LA once they got married. Let’s see if they ever move into the home they are remodeling. And I was also wondering where Kanye has been. He’s been pretty much MIA from the tabloids lately.

  23. Jax says:

    I officially hate myself for clicking on this post. Off to more awesome Celebitchy posts!

  24. swack says:

    Did anyone notice in the first picture (I just did) that Kanye’s tennis shoes kind of match Kim’s dress? Or is it just me?

  25. kcarp says:

    I bet Kayne wears white since it is his first wedding. She is what 31 or 32 and on wedding #3? By the time she is 50 I predict she will have been married 5 times.

  26. Stephanie says:

    These clothes are just hideous! Lord have mercy on my eyeballs!!!!

  27. Suzy from Ontario says:

    Didn’t Avril Lavigne and her now-husband get married in France? I don’t think they had two ceremonies or lived in France for 40 days. Hmm, maybe they had a civil ceremony in Canada first? Weird.

    Personally I think Kim having another over-the-top wedding with another 3 dress changes is not going to be viewed favourably since she went over the top with her last wedding. Of course, with Kanye, everything is over the top, so…

  28. ramona says:

    I know this makes me sound horrid, but my husband and I had three wedding ceremonies – one with just the two of us, one in the country where my family lives, and one in the country where his family lives. None of these ceremonies cost $10,000,000, however. I did wear the same dress for two of the three ceremonies.

    Honestly, we just figured that weddings are really, really fun. Two years from now, on our 10-year anniversary, we’re going to have another one. I’m pulling for New Orleans, preferably during French Quarter Festival.

    I pray that “amount of wedding ceremonies” is the only comparison anyone will ever be able to make between myself and the Kardashian shrew.

  29. Lucky Charm says:

    Of course they need three ceremonies. It’s not just their big ego’s – one for her front, one for her @$$ and one for him.

    And just WHAT is she wearing in that first picture?!?!?!

  30. Saywhat? says:

    They’re a “high-profile couple”? Well, okay, they need to get higher than high, I suppose.

  31. skuddles says:

    Behold the new Pam Anderson & Kid Rock. I’m sure Kimye’s marriage will last just as long.

  32. LAK says:

    It’s so sad that they need this level of validation….
