According to reality star Kim Kardashian’s mother, Kris Jenner, the Kardashian-Kanye West wedding could happen soon. According to the mother of the bride, wedding plans are underway and a big event is anticipated.
Jenner commented on the upcoming nuptials at a fundraising event last week. She says that she expects the wedding to be big as they have “a pretty big family.” Previous sources have also reported that a sizeable wedding is expected because it is West’s first marriage and he is ready for a big celebration. Jenner wouldn’t comment on whether Kardashian and West have officially set a date but did say that “hopefully it will be soon.”
Jenner further indicated that a unique event should be expected as Kardashian and West are both creative people who “definitely have their own ideas.” She is not sure about the level of input she may be allowed to have.
Rumors about the Kardashian-West wedding have been circulating from practically the moment their engagement was announced in October, with the latest focusing on whether the nuptials will take place sooner rather than later.
So far rumors have included claims that the wedding would take place at the Palace of Versailles, a rumor that has since been debunked, and claims that Kardashian and West would sit on gold thrones during the ceremony. Kardashian has also been rumored to be interested in a Kate Middleton style dress. Sources say she loves all things royal, even privately considering her own family to be a kind of “American Royalty.” Reports are that West has mentioned the possibility of the presence of fighter jets as a part of the ceremony.
Speculation has also been made that the wedding will air on TV, perhaps along with footage of the engagement. This would be Kardashian’s second televised marriage ceremony, though she must certainly hope for a better outcome than the first. Her previously aired two-part special “Kim’s Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian Event” allowed viewers a front row seat to her wedding to NBA player Kris Humphries. The couple famously filed for divorce after only 72 days of marriage. Her divorce from Humphries was finalized in June, after more than a year of dispute.
The road to marriage has been relatively quick for Kardashian and West. The two first announced that they were together in April, 2012 and the lovebirds have been going strong ever since. In December, 2012 West made the announcement that the happy couple were expecting a child. Quickly thereafter, the two purchased an $11 million mansion in Bel Air. In June, they announced that they were expecting a daughter and shortly thereafter their beloved North West arrived happy and healthy, five weeks early. In October, the couple became engaged when West surprised Kardashian with an over-the-top $3 million proposal.
Kardashian and West are currently living with their daughter in Kardashian’s mother’s, home while their Bel Air mansion is undergoing remodeling. Her mother says that seeing the relationship, romance and wedding come together has been “a dream come true” for her. Jenner also expressed her joy at seeing Kardashian become a loving and involved mother alongside West showering his fiance and daughter with love. Millions await the expression of that love in the form of a wedding ceremony, and are most certainly hoping it will happen soon.
