It looks as if the entire Kardashian crowd has descended on Paris in preparation for Kim Kardashian 's big wedding  to Kanye West , but there is one person missing — Brody Jenner. Kim's step-brother is reportedly skipping out on the event  because his girlfriend, Kaitlynn Carter, was not invited to the the bash. The couple was spotted having lunch together in LA on Thursday as the rest of the clan prepared for Kim's nuptials in Europe. Traditionally, significant others of less than one year are not invited to weddings and, considering that Kim and Kanye are reportedly keeping the guest list very limited , they probably couldn't fit her in. Meanwhile, Brody's brother, Brandon Jenner, and his wife, Leah Jenner, have already arrived in the City of Light with Brandon and Brody's dad, Bruce Jenner. Bruce will walk Kim down the aisle despite his recent estrangement from Kim's mom, Kris Jenner.
Kim and Kanye's wedding  festivities will reportedly begin in earnest on Friday evening, but the Kardashian-Jenner clan may have kicked things off a little early. The brood stepped out for a shopping trip at Dior after a visit to the Eiffel Tower on Thursday, then followed up the day of tourism with a family dinner at the Costes Bar — Kim slipped into a Balmain mini dress for the evening outing after having worn a fitted leather frock during the day. The Kardashian sisters' hairdresser, Jen Atkin, has been sharing behind-the-scenes snaps from her time in Paris with the wedding party, and captioned a photo of Khloé Kardashian walking to a family dinner  on Wednesday as being "Day 1." However, Khloé, Jen, and the rest of the Kardashian sisters all arrived in the City of Light  earlier this week. Is this just a taste of the pre-pre-party?
