Soon-to-be-wed Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have just weeks to go before their wedding date of May 24, but have yet to confirm a venue.

The reality TV star and rapper are currently scouting out spots in the French capital of Paris, but are finding it tough to discover an available spot which could cater to their needs.

No fear, we’ve done the work of five wedding planners and come up with five alternative places they could tie the knot.

1. The Golden Tulip, Armenia

You might not have heard of this hotel previously, but it’s a luxurious five-star hotel located in the centre of Yerevan, Armenia. The Kardashian girls are proud of their Armenian roots, so this location could be the perfect spot for Kim and Kanye to share their wedding vows.

The hotel was built in the 1920s by famous architect N. Buiatian and so could inspire a ‘Great Gatsby’-themed bash for the celebrity pair. If guests are partial to a spot of sightseeing, the hotel’s website boasts about its close proximity to the Opera House, National Art Gallery and Republic Square.

2. Castle Leslie, Co Monaghan

Authentic luxury will be right up Kim’s street. Forget Paris Kimye and come to Ireland. The Irish castle exudes ‘old world grandeur’and is a private retreat miles away from the outside world. It was also claimed to be the hotel the K-clan would be staying in when they were rumoured to visit Ireland last year.

Jay-Z has no doubt told his good friend Kanye about his family trip to Dublin with wife Beyonce and daughter Blue Ivy during Queen Bey’s concert stint in the O2.

The couple were reportedly amazed at how they were left to their own devices by the Irish public who, to the rest of the world, seemed oblivious of their fame. Kim would be free to stroll Grafton Street unhassled  before her trip to Monaghan.

3. Casino Marino, Dublin

Kim and Kanye mightn’t be aware just yet, but the Office of Public Works have recently opened seven national heritage sights to be made available for civil wedding ceremonies. The couple could request to become man and wife at The Casino at Marino, Dublin before their trip to Paris.

Not only would it create more than a few ‘selfie’ opportunities, it could prove as future inspiration for a baby name.

4. Magical Kingdom, Disneyland, Paris

Kimye seem determined to marry in Paris, but are still finding it tough to nail down a venue with just four weeks to go. Magical Kingdom at Disneyland Paris would tick all the boxes – a ready-to-go castle, they could tick Paris off the checklist and North could have a fun day out too.

5. In the sky

Money is clearly not an issue for Kimye’s big day, so why not bring it to new heights altogether for a cool €15,000? Forget the church, or castle, you can now get married in 164-feet up in the air. The downside? Only twenty guests will fit on the platform. The upside? They can choose absolutely any location. The pair could swap vows in the air over the Grand Canyon, Sahara Desert or Hollywood Boulevard. Now that would probably make a front page photo.
