Operation wedding is in full swing for Hollywood's favorite bachelor George Clooney and his fiancee Amal Alamuddin, with guests arriving and decorations going up in Venice, Italy, ahead of their marriage on Saturday, Sept. 27.
Venice's luxurious five star, 79 room Hotel Cipriani is currently being transformed into a romantic idyll, ready to host a slew of celebrations over the weekend. The hotel's elegantly converted 19th-century Granary is being fitted out with stunning crystal chandeliers and lavish place settings ready for festivities, as Us Weekly's exclusive preview snap reveals.
The stunning hotel is also playing host to Alamuddin's family. "Her mom [Baria] is at the hotel already with a host of family members," a source tells Us. "They seem excited about the festivities. I heard her mom say, 'I can't believe it's actually here!'"
