They stopped into a trendy restaurant for lunch, where Kim Kardashian's sheer peach top left little to the imagination, flashing her curves at every turn.

Big sis, Kourtney Kardashian and mom, Kris Jenner joined them. Of course, 11-month-old baby North West is also in Paris for her parents' festivities. Kim took her mini-me shopping on Tuesday.

Kim and Kanye are in full wedding countdown mode. They were also seen hitting the gym, where they hid their faces behind bandanas.

We're learning more about the big Memorial Day Weekend wedding. It will all begin on Friday outside Paris at the spectacular Chateau de Wideville, the home of designer Valentino, who will host a bridal luncheon for the Kardashian ladies.

It's now being confirmed that Kim and Kanye were refused permission to marry at Versailles Palace, because they're not "distinguished" enough, according to one official. But their guests have been offered a private tour.

"Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have decided to let their guests discover the Château of Versailles during a private surprise tour on Friday, May 23, the eve of their wedding," says a just-released statement.

Preparations are well underway at the wedding venue, Fort Belvedere in Florence, Italy. Guests will be flown via private jet for Saturday's affair.
