Here is every fairly-to-not-really credible rumor about the George Clooney-Amal Alamuddin wedding available. Before we dive in, the bottom line is that this sounds like the chillest affair ever, wherein chill equals the best thing, rather than casual. Because it's not casual, but it is the best.
Really whose wedding could be better? Matt Damon will be there. Also Cate Blanchett. Clooney only hangs out with the non-douchie celebs, so everyone is going to be so chill, so chill, man. Anna Wintour is there, which usually isn't super chill, but in this case it is because she's at the chillest wedding.
The chill guests have been asked to leave their phones at home because they're trying to have a chill time, plus everyone can just see the pics in Vogue, which reportedly bought rights for over $1.6 million.
Alamuddin is staying in the Alcova Tiepolo suite of the Aman Grand Canal resort. According to the brochure, it has "a Chinese painted sitting room and a bedroom ceiling by (18th century painter) Giovanni Battista Tiepolo," who, as everyone knows, was the chillest 18th century painter.
Amal was spotted leaving Alexander McQueen in early September, which would be chill but also she would look fantastic in anything.
