The TOMKAT wedding festivities is on and it seems like everyone is town for this extravaganza. We hope they don’t mind the rain 'cause Italian forecasters have predicted rain showers for tomorrows wedding. We highly doubt the rain will stop this multi million dollar wedding from taking place.
Last night Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes hosted a dinner party at Nino restaurant for their guests which included Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony, Brooke Shields, Leah Remini, Jada Pinkett Smith, Jim Carrey, Jenny McCarthy, Cameron Crowe and Cruise's producing partner Paula Wagner.
Katie, who was wearing Armani stepped out with her baby and soon to be hubby Tom, who is rumored to have packed on a few pounds. We hear there were last minute alterations for Tom’s wedding attire since he has put on some weight. The restaurant prepared a special off-menu, multi-course meal for the party, and Tom, Katie, Suri, Connor and Isabella stayed long after most of their celeb pals had taken off.
Meanwhile security has been beefed up with all the star power in Rome, Tom has been recommended a private security force from actor George Clooney who owns a villa in Lake Como. Just outside of their hotel Hassler in Rome which is perched atop of the Spanish Steps and has caused a ruckus with the media and hundreds of gawkers. The celeb couple booked the entire seventh floor of the posh hotel, where they nibbled on melons, buffalo mozzarella and mineral water shortly after their arrival. We hear that the couple is still waiting for the arrivals of other invited guests which include George Clooney, Steven Spielberg, Russell Crowe, Brad Pitt, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Giorgio Armani.
Two important guests that made it out to Italy were Katie’s parents who arrived yesterday in Rome. When Katies father Martin Holmes was asked about how he felt by Sky Italia, he revealed, "We are very excited for Tom and Katie." Tom’s family members are also in town including mother Mary and his older children Conor, 11, and Isabella, 13, who were adopted during his marriage to Nicole Kidman. Journalist from Italy are saying there is rumors swirling that Katie may be pregnant again.
Speaking of Nicole Kidman according to People magazine, she has sent Tomkat a wedding present with a note that wished them both a lifetime of happiness together," a source close to Kidman reveals but no word on what the gift was.
Meanwhile we hear the castle where Tomkat is said to get married has hoisted red and white flags on its towers Thursday afternoon, adding to the festive atmosphere for Tom and Katie's extravaganza. Stay tuned as we bring you more updates throughout today and the weekend.
