If you were planning on crashing the Kanye West/Kim Kardashian wedding, think again. 

The Associated Press reports that the hip-hop power couple will tie the knot next Saturday, May 24, at the Belvedere Fort in Florence, Italy. The venue was built between 1590 and 1595 and costs roughly $410,000 for a royal wedding such as this. 'Ye told a Florence news paper that he's "very happy."

The location has a special place in the couple's heart. As he told the same Florence paper, it's the site where their daughter, North West, was conceived. "It's one of the most beautiful cities of the world, for me the most beautiful in Europe," Kanye said. "[North] was conceived among the Renaissance masterpieces."

No word on their honeymoon just yet, but we're thinking a new zip-lining trip is in order
