Things that do not surprise us include the fact that gag-inducingly ostentatious couple Kim Kardashian and Kanye West want to get married at the Chateau de Versailles. Because of COURSE they do. After all, is Kim not a modern-day Marie Antoinette? I’m not sure whether Kanye classifies as a new interpretation of Louis XVI, but given that as a couple, they’re all about disgusting displays of wealth, it kind of fits, no?
One source revealed to Us Weekly, “Kanye has never been married and wants a big [wedding],” while another noted, “They are not working with a budget.” Rumor has it that star-powered wedding planner Sharon Sacks will likely be chosen to orchestrate the whole thing.
The big question I have, though, is whether they’re planning on having the wedding at the Chateau itself, or whether it’ll be at the Trianon Palace, which is a Waldorf Astoria hotel located “at the threshold of the lush lawns and vibrant gardens of the Chateau de Versailles.” The Trianon Palace would make a certain amount of sense; they do in fact do weddings, and they’ve got a full wedding brochure available for perusal e on their website. But knowing Kim and Kanye (and Kim especially), they’ll stop at nothing less than tying the knot at the actual Chateau—even though I’m not even sure you actually CAN get married there. If money is no object, then I’m sure they’ll find a way to make it happen (just like the way they make their Black Fridays happen). And that kind of makes me go “ugh.” So… ugh.
Anyhoo, there you have it. Thoughts, Bettys?
