Lavish summer wedding for Kanye and Kim - there'll even be fighter jets!


Kanye West wants to marry Kim Kardashian next summer.

The Power rapper, who popped the question to his reality TV star girlfriend last week on her 33rd birthday, has revealed they’re likely to get married in the summer of 2014 and he’s planning a lavish ceremony complete with aircrafts.

He quipped, "Two words: fighter jets."

The 36-year-old star, who has a four-month-old daughter, North, with Kim, talked about his lavish proposal at San Francisco's AT&T Park stadium earlier this month, saying he was "nervous" about getting down on one knee.

He rented the entire baseball stadium for the proposal, hired an orchestra and had a fireworks display light up the sky as he asked Kim for her hand in marriage with her family and friends watching on.

Ever the perfectionist, the All of the Lights rapper says he was worried about "everything being on cue" and hoped to have Lana Del Rey perform for him and Kim, but instead he had to settle for an orchestral version of her song Young and Beautiful. Kanye also revealed that he changed his mind about his new fiancée's engagement ring just 24 hours before popping the question and only selected the 15-carat diamond ring he presented Kim on the day of the proposal.
