    As we told ya earlier (and yesterday), Katy Perry and Russell Brand's six-day wedding extravaganza at the Taj Rambagh Palace in Jaipur, India, is under way, and the soon-to-be power couple are pulling out all the privacy stops. And we mean all:

    "They made guests not part of the wedding party, hotel staff included, vacate the premises," says one of our hotel sources. "Just today, the local authorities announced that no cameraperson can come within one kilometer of the Taj."

    Oh no! So what can we expect the stylish Katy to be sporting come the big day since we'll get no sneak peeks? Here's a hint:

    Katy's gown comes from a foreign and très chic designer that Perry has worn many times on the red carpet.

    "It's long and white, very traditional in that sense," we're told of the preliminary drawings by a source close to the wedding planner.

    But knowing Perry and her flair for all things fabulous, it can't be that simple, right?

    "Beading galore, the entire front is covered in beading. And there's a really...interesting head piece. I don't think most brides could pull it off, but most brides aren't Katy Perry."

    Katy supposedly hired celeb wedding planner Mindy Weiss, who did Gwen Stefani's wedding, and we're told Katy wanted to channel Gwen's chic look when designing her dress.

    She def went to the right person then!

    So back to the big day: The hotel is cordoned off by police, security and additional special security from abroad, and they are not allowing anyone to loiter in the vicinity.

    "The overseas security is fiercely guarding the fort and is showing no mercy to anyone, and the police are supporting them completely," dishes one of our hotel spys.

    "Everyone regardless of their status is checked for any type of camera, hidden or visible, and if they are not among the invited guests, it is confiscated," says our source emphasizing the security. "Any overseas media persons trying hard to get a glimpse of the event are being kept strictly at bay."

    Can't say we blame Katy or Russell. Here's hoping they have the most fab wedding ever, but you'd better believe we're dying to see pics when it's over. Those two certainly know how to throw a party.

    For their surely equally fab honeymoon, the couple are rumored to be planning a visit to the exotic locales of Mauritius and the Maldives.

    And that, of course, will only the beginning of this sexy duo's celebrated extravagant time together. Do you realize in this age of couples busting up everywhere how badly we all need this way-overblown love stuff?

    Congrats, Katy and Russell, and by all means, keep it up!
