The pre-wedding festivities are underway in Europe for Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.

E! reports that the couple hosted a special celebration for their closest family and friends at the Palace of Versailles, which featured a performance by Lana Del Rey. The songstress performed three songs, including “Summertime Sadness.” An inside says that Kimye “love” Del Rey and “were so happy she could sing for them.”

The celebration also included carriage rides, tours and fireworks — and no one’s spirits could be dampened by the rain. E! also reports that it wasn’t a sit-down, formal dinner, but lobster sticks, cavier and crepes hors d’ouevres instead.

One source says, “Everyone was crying because they have never experienced such a party.”

The nuptials between the “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star and rapper baby daddy are taking place Saturday (May 24) in Italy.
