Knowing you are about to become George Clooney's bride is probably the only reason you'd ever want to separate from his gorgeous side for more than 10 minutes. But the actor and his equally-as-stunning lawyer fiance Amal Alamuddin chose to do just that after hosting an elegant, star-studded rehearsal dinner in Venice the night before they said "I do."
George, 53, and Amal, 36, kicked off the night with an intimate dinner for guests at Hotel Cipriani on the island of Giudecca. Matt Damon and his wife, Luciana, were among the celebs who attended -- along with Cindy Crawford and her husband, Rande Gerber (who is rumored to be George's best man), John Krasinkski and Emily Blunt, and U2's Bono.
Nothing spectacular so far, right? Just your run-of-the-mill rehearsal dinner in one of the most glorious cities on earth -- ho hum. But what they did next was fantastic -- the couple and their friends and family split up into girl/boy groups and continued on their merry way.
