The countdown is on, ladies: George Clooney is (almost) a married man!

The 53-year-old actor and his fiancée Amal Alamuddin arrived in Venice, Italy, Friday, looking every bit the perfect couple as they boated through the canal. But before Clooney and his human rights lawyer love, 36, can actually say "I do," they need one last night of pre-wedding fun—their bachelor and bachelorette parties, of course!

A source tells E! News that Friday night, Clooney will drop Alamuddin off at the Aman Canal Grande. From there, she and eight gal pals will celebrate the future Mrs. Clooney saying goodbye to her single status forever! Many of her friends from the U.K. and Oxford haven't seen each other in many years, a source says, so there will be lots of catching up to do!

As for the groom-to-be? He's expected to have some stag fun of his own, too! According to a source, the Oscar winner will make his way back to Hotel Cipriani, where he'll meet up with his guy friends for a final evening of unattached fun.

Matt Damon is likely to be one of the fellas fêting the actor (an eyewitness tells E! News he and wife Luciana Barroso have already arrived in Venice), along with Rande Gerber, who, along with wife Cindy Crawford will reportedly arrive in Venice from Como Friday afternoon.

After the bachelor and bachelorette bashes, though, comes the big day: Saturday! A source says the bride will get her makeup and hair done in the morning at the Aman, where Clooney and guests will join her. Alamuddin and Clooney will have a symbolic wedding ceremony that night, which will likely be performed by former Rome Mayor Walter Veltroni.

And although Mr. and Mrs. Clooney's union won't be official until the civil ceremony Monday, since they'll be symbolically married Saturday evening, a source says they'll spend that night together in the same hotel.

On Sunday, the newlyweds will have lunch with their guests, a source tells E! News, followed by another party. On Monday, Clooney and Alamuddin will wrap up their wedding weekend fun with a civil ceremony, at which point they will officially and legally be man and wife.
