Entertainment Tonight is on location at the New York City building where the Beyonce and Jay-Z wedding is rumored to be taking place tonight. Here's what ET has learned so far:

Orchids are being delivered and a cake is currently being built. It will be an intimate affair with a sit-down dinner planned for just 30 people. The color scheme is off-white and the theme is, appropriately, the roman numeral four -- representing today's date. ET has also learned that Beyonce's mother TINA has already arrived. Celeb blogger Perez Hilton first broke the news that the two were marrying today.
-Beyonce's dressing room is set up in gym with a vanity and flowers.

-There are secret service everywhere inside...they swept the place.

-Fridge stocked with Jay-Z's favorite champagne.

-There was a platform - maybe for the ceremony.

-Tables were set for about 30, so the event will be intimate.

ET has also obtained what is believed to be the bouquet (see pic below) that rumored bride-to-be Beyonce will carry during her wedding to Jau-Z. The arrangement dons white roses and a white feathered fan complimented with decorative gold birds.

New photos of cream-colored flowers and oversized silver candelabras for what is presumed to be the New York City wedding for Beyonce and Jay-Z, rumored to be happening tonight.

While some say it may be a party to celebrate Jay-Z's new deal with Live Nation, The Insider has learned that preparations for a big event are being laid out right now at the Tribeca apartments in New York that could very well be for his rumored wedding to Beyonce! A box from Amy's Orchids was just delivered and CC Rental has been delivering as well. Busy workers are building an indoor tent with an all-white theme and the Roman numeral IV. We're told the event will be for about 30 people. The "magic hour" -- when all the workers need to be out -- is 3 p.m.

From For Beyoncé and Jay-Z, April showers brought flowers – and a possible wedding. On a rainy Friday in New York City, crews delivered floral arrangements, video equipment and a tent into Jay-Z's Tribeca apartment building. The wedding buzz began when the couple went to get a marriage license at a village hall in Scarsdale, N.Y., on Tuesday. "It's [happening] tonight," says a source. "A lot of their friends are booking hotel rooms." Early Friday morning, workers erected a white tent atop the building, where Jay-Z owns a penthouse apartment. Not long after, an SUV carrying photo and video equipment arrived, followed by floral deliveries.

More evidence of an impending wedding? Likely guests have been gathering in New York. Producer Rodney Jerkins, who is working on Beyoncée's new album and is a friend of Jay-Z's, zipped into town a couple of days ago. Beyoncé's former Destiny's Child bandmates, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams, are also here, coyly divulging in a YouTube video that they are camped out at The Four Seasons Hotel, giggling about "sisters" getting together.

And of course, there's Jay-Z, who was spotted hopping a flight from Boston, where he performed last night, to New York this morning. Friends of the couple say they are very eager for the nuptials to happen. "It's about time," says producer Dallas Austin. "I think it's great that they're getting married."


FROM YBF.COM: YBF New York correspondents are currently on the scene around 195 Hudson St. (Jay-Z’s place) which is the rumored place Beyonce & Jay-Z wedding festivities are going down today. It’s a paparazzi and media zoo to the utmost power down there and we’ve definitely found out some interesting tidbits. Here’s what YBF has seen and heard so far while on the scene:
* Around 5p est today, a black SUV with full tinted windows flew through the crowd of media to enter the building’s garage. Only one paparazzo landed a pic of the unconfirmed woman inside. But she was by herself and purposely covering her face with a black and silver “Dereon like” hoodie.
* Another person was spotted entering the building who resembled Irv Gotti.
* 20 minutes later 8 black SUVs of the same kind exited the garage one right after the other. All SUVs were empty.
* Word on the street (from an unreliable source) was that the wedding was over and had taken place in a different location.
* But another word on the street (from a more reliable source) is that the wedding is actually taking place tonight. This would make more sense if that was indeed Bey in the first SUV.
* Word has it the SUVs all left to pick up guests and transport them back to Jay-Z’s place for a possible reception/party.
* Ironically, Dame Dash lives on the same street.
* Jay bought the penthouse for approx. $6 mill even though the building looks like crap from the outside.
* People were spotted setting up for “what looks like a party” under that white tent on the roof.

FROM THE INSIDER ONLINE: "The Insider"'s sources just spotted a man who might be JAY-Z entering the rapper's Tribeca residence through the garage in a black Cadillac Escalade. The man was dressed up and was holding a white cloth over his face. A neighbor of Jay-Z's told our sources that he was aware of the wedding, and that preparations for it have been in the works since Tuesday. He added that he's seen Jay-Z and BEYONCE a few times since they moved in to the apartment a week ago, and that they've been ideal neighbors.

I don't know... this could be it. Anyone wanna take bets on when the divorce will be?

I'll give it a year tops. Couples who get married after dating for a long period of time usually end up divorcing. I'on know what it is, but it happens--to celebs and everyday people. I have an uncle who 'dated', if that's what you want to call it, his woman for 18 years. They have 5 kids together. After being with the same woman for 18 years they have this big ass wedding. nine bridesmaids and nine groomsmen (I guess to represent their 18 year reunion). Now get this: Those fuckers were married for a year and a half before getting a legal divorce!
