Counting down to their wedding ceremony, Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel conducted a pre-wedding beach bash attended by 50 guests in Puglia, Italy, on Wednesday, October 17. According to US Weekly, the bash was attended by Justin's "D**k in a Box" co-star Andy Samberg and music manager Johnny Wright, who arrived at around 8:30 P.M.
Music was played continuously during the party, including Marvin Gaye's "Let's Get It On". A source said, "The group took in a beautiful 10-minute fireworks show. Everyone also dined on everything from pasta with clams and shellfish to octopus and vegetables."
A source told E! that they went out hours after the party. The couple joined a big group, which needed nine vehicles to transport them from their hotel near to the beach to a grotto in Lama del Trappeto on Thursday, October 18.
The wedding celebration is rumored to take place this weekend. It will be attended by several stars such as Timbaland and Beverley Mitchell, who played in "7th Heaven" with Jessica.
The actress' "Playing for Keeps" co-star Gerard Butler expressed his excitement, "I'm very excited for her. Absolutely." He then gushed about the couple, "I know Justin. He's a good dude. He's a great guy. Great guy and she's an exceptional woman. I'm very happy for her."
Later, Gerard said nice things about the bride-to-be, "She's amazing. She's such a joy to work with. You have to be patient to work with me and she's patient. Her performance was incredible. Her comedy, her humanity, her warmth and just her talent. She's a great girl."
