"They are going to spend a few days looking at weddings venues in and around Paris," the source told E!. "They are also going to do some shopping. They are really excited to find the right place for their nuptials. They are looking at a summer wedding."

Is Kanye set on a Parisian wedding because of his epic song? And does this news means that Versailles Palace, their dream venue, is out of the question? Last month, Us Weekly stated that the former home of the French royal family, now a historic site just outside of Paris, was their ideal location, but it seems they're now expanding their search.

During Kim's appearance on today's episode of The Ellen DeGeneres show, she shared more details, as well as photos of baby North. "It will be this summer," she said. "Somewhere out of the country. We honestly haven't picked a date yet. We said when we were on our trip skiing this New Year's that we were going to pick the date and location, and that hasn't happened. We know we want it in the summer time, but we just [have] to figure that out."

The planned international destination isn't the only thing that will differentiate the upcoming nuptials from Kim's 2011 wedding to Kris Humphries. According to E!, the couple plans to use a new wedding planner, as well. "Kim and Kanye have decided not to use Sharon Sacks as they want to try a different direction from her usual style," a source said. Sacks famously styled Kim and Kris's luxe, black-and-white themed Los Angeles wedding.

It's exciting to hear how much time and effort this power couple is putting into their wedding because we know it's going to be off-the-wall amazing. Whatever venue they choose, a summer affair means that North will be about a year old—the perfect age to make her a tiny, adorable flower girl!
