Amal Alamuddin flew into Milan, Italy, from London with her mother on Thursday for her wedding to George Clooney, which is expected to take place in Venice.
And the bride-to-be, 36, was all smiles as she arrived with a fair amount of luggage, including a large garment box and several pieces of baggage.
Her family is thrilled about the impending nuptials, with a source telling PEOPLE that Alamuddin's father, Ramzi, "couldn't seem more delighted" and that he finds the Hollywood star, 53, "very sympathetic, intelligent, cool, easygoing and crazy in love with Amal!"
Engaged since April, the couple are now finally nearing their big day. And while many of the details remain secret, PEOPLE has confirmed that Walter Veltroni, the former mayor of Rome, will conduct the ceremony.
