If you’ve been living under a rock for a few months, chances are you won’t know about George Clooney’s covert arrangements for marrying his hotshot lawyer fiancée, Amal Alamuddin. 

Luckily for you, we’ve been avoiding rocks – and, as a result, we know the details of one of this year's most exciting weddings. (Move over, Pitt. You've had your day.)

MOST POPULAR

1)    The actor proposed to his incredibly smart (and very beautiful) lawyer girlfriend with a stunning, seven carat-plus emerald-cut diamond ring in April. Cue worldwide heartbreak.

2)    George and Amal were widely expected to be tying the knot at Clooney's famous Lake Como property on 20 September. The mayor of Laglio in Lake Como, Roberto Pozzi, stoked speculation when he confirmed that he'd created new laws 'to guarantee privacy and security for George Clooney and his guests', to will be put in place during the month of the wedding. However, Clooney confirmed at the Celebrity Fight Night event in Tuscany on 7 September that the nuptials would take place in Venice.

3)    According to a British tabloid, Amal is a huge Lana Del Rey fan. With money no object when it comes to wedding entertainment, we're putting two and two together (and keeping our fingers crossed) for a starry performance.

4)    Clooney recently flew a large team from Giorgio Armani’s Milan head office to his Lake Como pad, sparking speculation that he will be wearing the label for the big day.

5)    Following the Armani x Clooney revaluation, MAJOR wedding dress speculation erupted, with Oscar de la Renta emerging as frontrunner. However, for the couple's first official public appearance together - at the aforementioned Celebrity Fight Night, some five months after their engagement, pictured above - Amal wore Dolce & Gabbana, hinting at a relationship with the famous Italian design house. Which would fit the brief rather nicely for an Italian wedding, no?

7)   The couple became one step closer to tying the knot when their banns were posted to the general public at Chelsea Old Town Hall, London, in August. The notice confirms the ceremony’s location as Italy. 

8)   George and Amal are surrounded by friends and family in Venice for the rehearsal dinner ahead of the big day. Guests at the dinner included Clooney's fellow Hollywood stars Matt Damon and Emily Blunt. We can't stop talking about what Amal might wear to tie the knot – hopefully we don't have to wait too long to find out…
