Details surrounding George Clooney and his fiancee Amal Alamuddin's upcoming wedding in Venice, Italy have been released and—even for the most wedding-fatigued among us—(me)—it sounds like it's going to be fun and fancy. We should go!
US Weekly reports most of the wedding weekend's festivities will take place at Venice's five-star Hotel Cipriani, which is currently being "transformed into a romantic idyll" for tonight's rehearsal dinner. Helping complete the transformation are, reportedly, crystal chandeliers and "lavish place settings," whatever that means. (Place settings made out of salt water fish tanks and Creme de la Mer?) This is the hotel:
Us reports Matt Damon and his wife Luciana Barroso, Cindy Crawford, and Bono are some of the Known People expected to arrive in Venice today with George and Amal.
Saturday morning, guests will take showers (I assume), get ready, and have breakfast at the hotel—probably better than it sounds—before being taken by boat to Aman Canal Grande, shown below, for the ceremony. Former Rome mayor Walter Veltroni will reportedly officiate.
After the ceremony, guests will celebrate with a five-course meal from Italian chef Riccardo de Pra before heading back to the Cipriani for drinks and fireworks around the pool.
"Everyone is very excited. It's going to be quite the party."
It sounds like it! The source continued:
"There is a lot of celebrating planned. They will be serving the tequila at a couple of the parties!"
Unfortunately, the source did not elaborate on "the tequila."
