Kim and Kanye’s wedding day will no doubt be one of the most memorable days of their lives. And even though it won’t be the same without Kim’s late father, Robert Kardashian, and Kanye’s late mother, Donda West, Kimye is planning a special tribute to honor their parents’ memory, a source tells EXCLUSIVELY.

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are so sad that Donda West and Robert Kardashian won’t be there to see them say their “I dos” in Paris in May. That’s why the couple is planning to devote a part of their nuptials to their beloved late parents, a source tells EXCLUSIVELY.

Kim Kardashian & Kanye West’s Late Parents To Be Honored At Wedding

It’s been a little more than six years since Kanye’s loving mother, Donda West, lost her life to heart disease following a surgical procedure in November, 2007. We’re told Kanye, 36, is still grieving and that his mom is in his heart and on his mind as he prepares to become a husband.

“It’s going to be an emotional day for Kanye, and his mother will be on his mind for sure,” a source close to the Yeezus artist somberly explains to EXCLUSIVELY. “It was his dream to show his mother the love of his life and their child!”

“Everything is going to be so perfect, filled with happiness, joy and bliss and he would have really wanted his mother there, front and center, to walk him down the aisle,” the source says. “Now, he has North [West] for that.”

But even though Kanye’s mother — and Kim’s father, Robert Kardashian, who died of esophageal cancer in 2003 at 59 — won’t be physically there when Kim and Kanye tie the knot, the couple wants to make sure that their parents’ presence is felt.

“A part of the wedding is going to be devoted to remembering Kanye’s Mom and Kim’s Dad,” another source tells EXCLUSIVELY. “Kanye really wants to make a point of having them both be a part of the wedding by honoring their memory.”

What a wonderful way to remember Donda and Robert! Don’t you agree, HollywoodLifers? Let us know!
