It appears that George Clooney and his fiance Amal Alamuddin are going to be traditional with their wedding. According to reports, the family of the British lawyer is planning on footing the bill for the couple’s nuptials in Venice, Italy.
Clooney boasts a rumored fortune of $180 million, but his soon-to-be in-laws have insisted upon sticking to tradition with regard to the bride’s family paying for the wedding. A source said, “Crazy enough, her family is paying for most of it!”
Alamuddin’s mother and father, Baria and Ramzi Alamuddin also helped the duo pick out the location for the wedding along with the date. An insider said, “They are old-fashioned when it comes to these things.”
Clooney and Alamuddin are expected to tie the knot in a black-tie affair on September 27th in Venice, Italy. The spy said, “It’s all very classy.”
Despite reports that the high profile couple are having their nuptials in Italy, there are photographers and fans camped out in London, England where Clooney and Alamuddin have obtained their wedding license. Their wedding will take place in front of sixty friends and family members. Reportedly, there will be no really huge stars at the event and the couple has already written out some vows for the occasion.
The groom will toast his bride with his Casamigos Tequila at their wedding as he and Rande Gerber were said to have loaded 100 cases of the drink into a private jet headed from California to Venice.
Earlier in the month, Clooney couldn’t help but to profess his love for his bride-too-be. He said in a toast, “I would just like to say to my bride-to-be, Amal, that I love you very much. And I can’t wait to be your husband.”
Gerber and Matt Damon are both said to be vying for the position of best man in Clooney and Alamuddin’s wedding.
