The big day is almost here. In four days, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian will be exchanging vows abroad, with a big-name designer’s custom-made wedding gown hugging the bride’s curves and baby North possibly being ring-bearer (just visualizing here, folks). Still, despite shooing away E! cameras for the grand ceremony, much of the event planning has been kept under wraps. Thanks to the internet, there’s no need for a VIP invite to know some of the surprises planned for the Kardashian-West nuptials. See what we’ve learned so far.
