Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are undoubtedly a unique pair. But the trailblazing duo did conform somewhat when choosing their reported wedding date of May 24.

The highly anticipated French affair – which Kardashian recently Tweeted will be "very small and intimate" – is set to join a list of celebrity nuptials that took place over Memorial Day Weekend. Here are a few couples who famously chose the extended holiday.

Michael Jackson and Lisa Marie Presley – May 26, 1994
The King of Pop's wedding to the princess of Graceland was a super hush-hush affair. News of their private ceremony in the Dominican Republic wasn't announced until three weeks later. But the magic didn't last. They divorced less than two years later.

Jane Lynch and Dr. Lara Embry – May 31, 2010
The Glee star and her partner wed in a small, jazz music-filled ceremony in Sunderland, Mass. The couple recently had an amicable split.



Tony Romo and Candice Crawford – May 28, 2011
The Dallas Cowboys quarterback and his wife are still going strong after marrying in a huge 600-guest wedding at Arlington Hall in Dallas.

Neicy Nash and Jay Tucker – May 28, 2011
For her second marriage, the comedian and host of Clean House pulled out all the stops. She got hitched to her electrical engineer fiancé at an elegant outdoor ceremony at the Church Estate Vineyard in Malibu, Calif.

Cynthia Nixon and Christine Marinoni – May 27, 2012
For the Sex and the City star, she wanted to keep things simple. Three years after getting engaged at a rally to support same-sex marriage, the pair reportedly had a courthouse ceremony in New York City.

Aaron Paul and Lauren Parsekian – May 26, 2013
In a Parisian-themed ceremony, the Breaking Bad star and his fiancée tied the knot last year under a pavilion at Calamigos Ranch in Malibu.
