Kanye arrived before his wife-to-be. He was seen stepping off the private jet, dressed in a white shirt and carrying a large holdall.

Reports are suggesting that Kim and Kanye will take their vows in front of a giant wall of white flowers, similar to the one Kanye got her for mother's day.

Sources at the wedding say that huge walls of white flowers are currently being erected. An insider told US Weekly: "The blooms include white gardenias, white peonies, and white roses from Belgium and Paris. It's very hot at the moment so they'll spray them with water until the wedding starts to stop them from wilting."

Kim must be happy that the weather has held out for her big day, as witnesses in Paris said yesterday that she was very upset with the wetter weather.

Those in Florence right now have confirmed that crowds have started to gather outside the location.

The Mirror reported that the Forte Belvedere has been confirmed as the location for the wedding, and that the ceremony will take place at 2pm.

It was rumoured this week that Kim’s stepbrother Brody Jenner would boycott the event as his girlfriend had been left off of the list.

Despite this, Brandon Jenner's wife Leah posted a picture of the pair of them this morning on a plane as the wedding party made it’s way to Italy.

While Jay-Z is expected to be Kanye’s best man, it might be a bit awkward for him and wife Beyonce as Rachel Roy, who is said to have been involved in the Jay and Solange altercation, is also in attendance.

Bey and Jay apparently missed the pre-wedding dinner last night, but Jay made it up to his best mate Kanye by reportedly giving him a $10,000 bottle of scotch!

It is thought that Kanye and Kim chose Florence for the wedding venue as it’s a special place to them both.

In a recent interview, the 36-year-old rapper said: “I think that our daughter North was conceived here among the Renaissance masterpieces.

“It was our first honeymoon. It’s one of the most beautiful cities in the world, for me the most beautiful in Europe.”

Reports are claiming it cost the couple almost $500,000 to hire the Forte Belvedere.
