Sources say George Clooney will marry Amal Alamuddin at his Lake Como home--Villa Oleandra--in Laglio, Italy next month. Those same sources claim that wedding preparations are in full swing. Do note that George Clooney himself hasn't confirmed any of the following plans.
"George has always loved Como, he finds it very peaceful and relaxing and now Amal has fallen in love with the area as well," a source says. "They want to start their married life there with the beautiful lake as a backdrop. George's home on the lake is like a very well oiled machine. He has the local mayor fully on his side and the locals too and he can ensure that press and paparazzi are kept away."
"Doing the wedding in another area of Italy would involve too many people that he doesn't know or trust and George wants to make sure that Amal and both their families enjoy the big day," the source adds. "They want it to be about them celebrating their love and respect for each other with their loved ones watching. And they can do that in Como while keeping everything fully under their control."
Yet another source claims George Clooney's wedding to Amal Alamuddin will be very 'small and intimate.' How can that possibly be, unless 'small and intimate' to George Clooney means 200 or so of his closest friends? He doesn't seem like the type to leave out those closest to him, and there seem to be quite a few friends who are just that.
"This is not going to be a huge Hollywood wedding with Julia Roberts and Sandra Bullock flying in to Italy for a week," the source went on to explain. "George and Amal don't want a media circus with paparazzi helicopters flying overhead and motorbikes chasing after them as they all arrive at the airport in Milan from Los Angeles. They want the wedding to be intimate with quiet but happy and fun dinners and lunches after they've said short but meaningful, hand-written vows in front of their loved ones. They want their guests to enjoy it as much as they do and they know that if the guest list reads like the Oscars invite list with lots of big Hollywood names there it will be intimidating for their families. They can do a party for movie industry friends in Los Angeles at a later date."
Does this sound like George Clooney to you? He is a man's man and loves to have his good buddies close at hand. Do you think he would get married without inviting good pal Sandra Bullock?
It will certainly be interesting to learn how close to the real deal these sources are--and if the information they are reporting turns out to be true.
Meanwhile Amal Alamuddin is busy having the finishing touches put on her wedding dress. She will no doubt be a beautiful bride--and a lucky one, too. After all, she is marrying George Clooney.
