Kim Kardashian, Kanye West's Wedding Week: All the Details, Pictures!
Kimye Kraziness! Unless you were living under a rock Memorial Day weekend, news of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's European wedding extravaganza probably reached you. But with all that went on—the Eiffel Tower selfies! the outfit changes! the swanky brunches!—it might have been hard to keep up.
Us Weekly has compiled a comprehensive guide to the entire weekend from the moment Kim landed in the City of Light until she and her new hubby left for their top secret honeymoon!
Here's a recap of this week's events:
Sunday, May 18
After hitting some final red carpets in America, bride-to-be Kim Kardashian packed up her belongings and flew with daughter North West to Paris. They landed in Paris almost exactly a week before her wedding day.
As soon as she landed, the 33-year-old was photographed going out for ice cream with her future groom, Kanye West.

Following closely behind Kimmie was her younger brother Rob Kardashian, who was spotted at LAX with mom Kris Jenner, heading to Paris for the wedding. Other members of the reality TV family quickly followed suit, including France-novice Khloe Kardashian, who had never visited Paris until this trip.
With her family en route, Kim stepped out for some last-minute shopping with Kanye, flashing a little bit of side boob in the process as she continued to attract the attention of the excited European fans and photographers.

Working off their ice cream, the couple stepped out for a gym workout, covering their faces with bandanas to "hide" from the cameras as they left the gym.
Wednesday, May 21
Not enough on that registry? Kim and Kanye went on another shopping trip ahead of their wedding, decked out in coordinated tan and black outfits.
Meanwhile, preparations at their Florence, Italy wedding venue, Forte di Belvedere, were underway as workers constructed the giant flower wall the couple would later marry under.
"I hope the rain doesn't ruin my wedding!" she exclaimed.
The weather certainly wasn't getting in the way of the rest of the Kardashians' fun. After dinner they went out to the carousel located next to the Eiffel Tower to take fun pictures and ride around.
Thursday, May 22
Before the girls-only festivities began, Kim and bestie Jonathan Cheban visited the Eiffel Tower together. Naturally, they were mobbed by photographers, which Cheban captured in an Instagram video.
That night Kim was joined by sisters Khloe, Kendall, and Kylie, along with pals LaLa Anthony, Joyce Bonelli, Monica Rose, Brittny Gastineau and more for her bachelorette party. The girls hit the town, posing for pictures at the Louvre and in front of the Eiffel Tower and taking a party van through the Parisian sights.
Friday, May 23
At last the official wedding weekend was upon them as Kim, Kanye, and Ko. visited the Valentino mansion for a pre-wedding brunch, which was covered for Vogue by Andre Leon Talley. Little North didn't cry once throughout the meal. What a perfect princess!
Though he has avoided all of the publicized family events up until this point, Rob Kardashian was spotted at the lobby bar with Bruce Jenner and step-brother Brandon Jenner. He appeared to be in good spirits.
After their brunch, Kim and Kanye step out in entirely new outfits for their pre-wedding dinner at Versailles. Crooner Lana Del Rey performed and the groom gave a touching speech, calling his future bride more beautiful than he is talented. Yeezus, is that you?
The lavish event ended with fireworks around midnight, and guests later returned to the Four Seasons Hotel George V.
Saturday, May 24
Just like that, the wedding day was upon Kimye. The bride and groom and their honored guests took jets to Florence, Italy for the highly-anticipated ceremony, which took place at the Forte di Belvedere.
Meanwhile, Kim's ex-husband Kris Humphries spent his weekend in Minnesota with his family. Though he clearly wasn't invited, he wasn't the only no-show. In a surprising twist, Rob Kardashian hopped on a flight back to Los Angeles the morning of the wedding, missing the entire ceremony. Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour also skipped the festivities, and Kanye's longtime friend Jay Z and his wife Beyonce opted for a weekend in the Hamptons instead.
The ceremony and reception, which were organized by celebrity wedding planner Sharon Sacks, were private, with the couple saying their vows outside next to a giant wall of flowers. Mother of the bride Kris Jenner carried North down the aisle and proud stepfather Bruce Jenner stood by Kim at the altar.
After they exchanged Lorraine Schwartz wedding bands, as Kim wore a long sleeve, lace-covered Givenchy gown, the wedding party switched things up for the reception. The blushing bride swapped her formal gown for an embellished Balmain ivory dress. See Kim's most revealing outfits ever.
Their first dance was a mashup of "At Last," followed by "These Arms of Mine," Tenderness," and even a rap from the groom. John Legend also performed his no. 1 hit "All of Me." Guests goofed off in the venue's photobooth and noshed on a gourmet meal from three-Michelin-star restaurateur Giorgio Pinchiorri.
One guest later described the evening as, "the most perfect night."
Sunday, May 25
As the rest of their guests made their way back to America, the new Mr. and Mrs. Kanye West snuck off to their private honeymoon at an undisclosed location in Europe. Their daughter didn't join them, traveling home with grandmother Kris Jenner.
