What could go wrong with Kim and Kanye's wedding? They both adore big splashy events, they seem really in love, and they have enough money that no one ever needs to end up sobbing in a strip mall parking lot because they can only afford pink hydrangeas, not fuchsia ones. (I was a bridesmaid a bunch of times.) However, there are some headaches of wedding planning that no amount of money can eliminate, such as guest list drama. Case in point: Will Beyonce and Jay Z show up for the ceremony?
Rumor has it that Jay and Bey are planning to skip the nuptials, which will take place in France. According to the Daily Mail, they don't intend it as a snub - they just have no interest in appearing on "Keeping Up With the Kardashians," and cameras will be unavoidable (which, given that that show is Kim's whole raison d'etre, does sound a little like a snub).
Jay Z reportedly plans to make it up to his old pal Kanye in a big way - since he won't be at the ceremony, not only is he planning a bachelor party for the ages, but he also plans to spend more than $100,000 to rent a yacht for the couple's honeymoon. Good plan, guys. I have experience with this sort of thing. When my great-aunt couldn't make it to my Bat Mitzvah she sent me a $20 savings bond, which is sort of the same.
