(Newser) – "Evidence" is mounting that Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel are staging a "secret" wedding in Italy this week, if by "secret" you mean "the gossip mill can talk of nothing else." Us and Life & Style first reported the news yesterday, citing sources who say that even guests were kept in the dark on where, exactly, the wedding would be held—and they had to sign confidentiality agreements. The New York Post followed that up today with a claim that the wedding will take place in a small town near Naples that "means a lot to both of them," a source says. Celebuzz says guests were first flown to Germany on Monday, then given tickets to proceed on to Italy—until then, they had no idea where they were headed.

Celebrations—including a beach party complete with fireworks display yesterday, no we are not kidding—apparently began Tuesday, and though one source described the wedding as "intimate," another says there will be a few hundred guests. Radar and E! have details and pictures of the guests that have arrived, including former Saturday Night Live star Andy Samberg (JT's "Dick in a Box" costar), while Celebuzz has pictures of Francis Ford Coppola's boutique hotel, where some think the wedding is being held. As for how much they're spending? E! says the rumors are currently hovering somewhere north of $6 million.
