Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are in Paris, planning the wedding of the century and we've got all the exclusive details!

We're sure the couple has tried to rent out Versailles for the big day, but that is NOT going to happen.

They definitely don't want to follow Eva Longoria and Tony Parker who celebrated their nuptials at Vaux-le-Vicomte just outside of Paris. So they checked out the 17th-century, Louis XIV-commissioned Chateau de Louveciennes.

The chateau has an interesting recent history ... squatters actually occupied the building in the early 1980's until a French businessman purchases the property in 1994 and carefully restored it.

Now it's lovely and picture-perfect and wedding-ready. After a day of shopping in Paris -- a stop at Balmain and a meeting with their pal, Givenchy designer Ricardo Tisci -- the pair jump in a van for the hour-long ride to the chateau, with their entourage in tow. The group toured the property for about two hours, with a guide leading them through the historic buildings and gardens. A source tells X17online exclusively:

    "Kanye was taking the lead, asking all the questions and visualizing the big day and how everything might work. Kim offered a little input, but not much. It was all about how Kanye thought things should go and how he wants the wedding to look."

So will Kimye choose this lovely spot as the location for their Big Day? We'll find out soon enough (May 24)!
