Kanye West is rumoured to be planning a major fireworks show for his wedding to Kim Kardashian.

The Yeezus singer and fiancée Kim Kardashian are only a matter of weeks away from their wedding, which is slated for May 24 in Paris.

Before the wedding reception, guests may be treated to a private dining experience at the Eiffel Tower. Kim and Kanye are reportedly in talks to hire out the famous landmark, and have spoken to officials about exclusive access to both restaurants; 58 Tour Eiffel and Le Jules Verne.

There are also rumoured plans to use the conference room for a rehearsal dinner the night before the vows take place.

"They want to give their guests a real taste of Paris. Kanye is also in talks to hold a spectacular fireworks display to rival the lightshow at the London Olympics," an insider revealed to British magazine Grazia.

It has been widely reported that 33-year-old Kim would like to emulate Britain's Duchess of Cambridge on her big day, and looks up to Catherine's 2011 wedding to Prince William.

Kim's said to even want to copy Catherine and William's balcony kiss at Buckingham Palace, an iconic moment that was screened all over the world.

"Architects have quoted £200,000 to build a contemporary balcony. Kim has fallen in love with the place," the source added, referring to possible wedding venue Château Louis XIV.

It's been reported that Kim will wear three different gowns during the wedding, and she was recently been spotted at Balmain, Lanvin and Riccardo Tisci at Givenchy.

"Kim had her final fittings, including a dress Kanye has been overseeing the design of at Givenchy," the insider said.
