*Kim Kardashian and Kanye West will have three wedding ceremonies – one in Southern California and two in France, according to Radar Online.
The couple’s lawyers have advised them to have their civil ceremony in the United States, since they’re both American citizens, prior to their French nuptials on May 24 to avoid any unnecessary paperwork problems.
A source told the website: ”Typically, the US recognizes citizens getting married in France, but dealing with a foreign government and paperwork could be a nightmare. So just to make sure it’s legal, Kim and Kanye will first be having a civil ceremony in Southern California.”
Kim and Kanye – who have nine-month-old daughter North together – will have to have a religious ceremony after the civil wedding because of French custom. The French Embassy in Washington D.C. said: “A religious ceremony has to be performed after a civil ceremony, never before. The minister, priest or rabbi will require a certificate of civil marriage before any religious ceremony takes place.”
