Days earlier, Paris proudly flashed her gigantic engagement ring when she attended a Los Angeles Rams game in Inglewood, California, with her soon-to-be husband.

The emerald-cut diamond ring from Jean Dousset was rumoured to have set Carter back an eye-watering $2million when he proposed in February.

Paris and Carter have been romantically involved since December of 2019, although they had known each other for over a decade.

On Friday, Paris confirmed that her former stylist turned mega-star Kim Kardashian snagged an invitation to her wedding.

The heiress confirmed that Kim was invited to her lavish nuptials, but remained mum on whether or not Pete Davidson would be allowed as a plus one, when asked by TMZ.

Famously Paris helped aid the reality star’s rise to fame in the early 2000s when Kim worked as her stylist, but the duo’s friendship incurred ups and downs before they got things back on track.

It was revealed this month by Page Six that Paris changed her wedding venue just one week before she is set to walk down the aisle with entrepreneur Carter.

The estate will also host the newlyweds’ reception. 

It had previously been reported that the ceremony portion of the lavish-three day affair would be taking place at the Good Shepherd Church in Beverly Hills, however an invited guest divulged that plans had now changed. 

‘It changed about a week or so ago. It’s changed several times. Originally, they were going to get married in the church, but they switched it about a week or so ago,’ a source told the publication.

Happy wife happy life! The socialite will now be saying ‘I do’ at her late grandfather’s estate which is also the location of the reception to follow on November 11; pictured with fiancée Carter Reum on her new show 

In order to ensure maximum privacy, save the dates sent out in October had no disclosed location, and the new RSVPs — which were sent out on Wednesday November 3 — also have no addresses listed reportedly.  

‘New email invitations went out [Wednesday] to confirm attendance, but there still aren’t any addresses [listed],’ the source said.

As the whole thing will be filmed for the upcoming Peacock series Paris In Love, the same source remarked ‘they will be filming to death.’

An insider had previously told the publication of the wedding plans: ‘They sent out the save-the-date. They didn’t include the location, but [the reception] is going to be at Barron’s house.’

It was also added that the first invitation ‘came in a blue box. It sort of looked like a Tiffany’s box.’

Paris’ late grandfather Barron’s sprawling Bel-Air mansion is 15,000 sq ft, and was owned by the hotel magnate for 60 years before it was sold to former Google CEO Eric Schmidt in May.

It also served as the backdrop for a then 19-year-old Hilton’s 2000 Vanity Fair photoshoot shot by David LaChapelle.  

Of planning the nuptials, The Cooking With Paris star previously told Extra: ‘It’s been the most exciting and romantic time in my life — I just can’t wait for the wedding. It’s stressful planning it.’

Paris In Love: The three-day nuptials which reportedly includes a carnival, out of towners dinner and more will be filmed for the upcoming Peacock series Paris In Love 

And during that September chat her mom Kathy Hilton had accidentally disclosed that the lavish three-day affair would include a carnival.

A source had confirmed her brief slip up as they shared ‘There will be three parties — including a carnival-themed bash at Santa Monica Pier,’ and also an ‘out-of-towners dinner.’

Reum — an entrepreneur and venture capitalist — popped the question in February with a 15-20 carat engagement ring estimated to cost nearly $2M, following nearly a year-and-a-half of dating.

According to sources she will reportedly wear a Valentino bridal gown and the pair have an eye-popping $60,000 wedding registry through luxury store Geary’s Beverly Hills.

Barron died aged 91 in 2019 at his Los Angeles home and left almost all of his fortune to a charitable foundation named after his famous hotelier father, but surviving family members which include grandchildren Paris and Nicky will have still got millions.   

The Conrad N. Hilton Foundation inherited about 97 percent of Barron Hilton’s estate.

The foundation expected to grow its endowment from $2.9 billion to $6.3 billion, MailOnline reported at the time.

Founded in 1944 by Conrad Hilton, the man who founded the Hilton hotel empire, the foundation ‘provide[s] funds to nonprofit organizations working to improve the lives of individuals living in poverty and experiencing disadvantage throughout the world.’

According to its web site, the charity gives to Catholic sisters, disaster relief and recovery, foster youth, homelessness, hospitality workforce development, safe water, and young children affected by HIV and AIDS.  

Hilton’s family said he died of natural causes. He transformed Hilton into the industry’s top brand during his 30 years as its chief executive.  

The Blackstone Group bought the international chain’s 2,800 hotels – including its famed Waldorf-Astoria – for $26billion in 2007.  

‘The Hilton family mourns the loss of a remarkable man,’ said Steven M. Hilton, his son and chairman of the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, said in a statement.

‘He lived a life of great adventure and exceptional accomplishment.’

Fortune: Most of Barron Hilton’s fortune was left to a charity founded by his late father, Conrad Hilton (seen in an undated file photo above)

An avid pilot who served as a Navy photographer during World War II, Hilton didn’t begin working for his father’s company until 1951, after he’d made his own fortune in orange juice products, an oil company and an aircraft-leasing business.

Hilton also founded the Los Angeles Chargers in the AFL and oversaw the AFL-NFL merger.

William Barron Hilton was born in Dallas in 1927 to Conrad N. Hilton, the founder of Hilton Hotels, and Mary Adelaide Barron.

Hilton challenged his father’s will – arguing the foundation’s shares of Conrad Hilton’s fortune that were being used to help Catholic nuns could leave the company open to a hostile takeover- in a 10-year legal battle that ended in a settlement.

‘It was a very painful decade,’ Hilton told USA Today in 1995.

‘Hilton vs. the nuns was not the best public relations move.’

Hilton’s wife, Marilyn Hawley Hilton, died in 2004.
