Actor George Clooney will reportedly splurge some $2 million for his wedding with British lawyer Amal Alamuddin.
"He's going to spend a king's ransom to show how much he loves and cherishes her," showbizspy.com quoted a source as saying. The duo's wedding venue is said to be Clooney's Villa Oleandra estate at Lake Como in Italy. It is a 15-bedroom villa worth $30 million.
"It'll be a three-day extravaganza with the finest wines and delicacies from Italy, boat rides on the lake and fireworks at night," added the source.
According to other sources, the 53-year-old actor's expenses include: Vintage wine and champagne ($300,000), his custom Armani tuxedo ($10,000), security around Lake Como ($500,000), catering ($45,000) and flowers and other decorations ($100,000).
He popped the question with a ring worth 450,000 pounds. The 53-year-old actor proposed to the human rights lawyer and they celebrated their engagement with a few friends at Cafe Habana in Malibu, Florida, the Daily Star reported.
Sources revealed that Alamuddin had rejected his romantic advances several times and even refused to give him her telephone number, before he went down on one knee and proposed to her.
George Clooney won over his fiancee with a "series of flirty" emails, telling her that she is "hottest human rights lawyer in the world", after meeting her at a charity fundraiser.
The Monuments Men actor met lawyer Amal Alamuddin at a small charity fundraiser in September last year and after being instantly attracted to her, he resorted to sending her messages online since she refused to take his number, reports contactmusic.com.
He emailed her saying: "I think the reported hottest man in the world should meet with the hottest human rights lawyer in the world." A source told The Daily Mirror newspaper: "At first Amal was playing very hard to get and would not take his phone number, which simply made George even more intrigued.
"In the end he managed to get her email address and began sending her a series of flirty messages. He was very up front and joked about the fact they were both considered the hottest people in their respected professions.
"It was all very tongue in cheek but it got the ball rolling. Amal found it funny, but she still made him wait a few days before replying."
