With Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes's nuptials merely days away, some of their high-profile pals hopped a plane to Italy on Wednesday, PEOPLE has learned.

Expected wedding guests, including Brooke Shields, Jada Pinkett Smith, and Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony, boarded a private jet Wednesday at Burbank Airport.

Meanwhile, Cruise, 44, and Holmes, 27, were spotted at City Hall in Rome on Wednesday.

The couple first arrived in Italy, along with an entourage of 10 people, via private jet on Monday.

Other expected wedding attendees, Victoria and David Beckham, have a shorter distance to travel for the wedding – but are struggling with what gift to get for the bride and groom.

"David and Victoria are still scratching their heads as to what is the perfect present to give them," says a source close to the couple. "It's pretty damn hard finding the ideal gift for Tom and Katie."
