London's Daily Mirror says that Katie Holmes' new BFF, Victoria Beckham (aka Posh Spice), is helping plan the Italian shindig, which is rumored to be taking place at George Clooney's private villa at Lake Como.
"This is fantastic news for Katie. Not only has a date been set for her big day, she has got fashion queen Victoria helping with her wedding plans," a friend told The Mirror.
Meanwhile, Cruise's publicist is mum on what will actually go down on Nov. 18. "We have no comment on any of the wedding plans," his publicist told The ShowBuzz on Thursday.
Earlier this week, Cruise's rep confirmed that the bride will wear a gown designed by Giorgio Armani.
On Oct. 6, during a trip to Paris Fashion Week with Beckham, Holmes told People magazine, "I already have my dress." The next day the magazine reported that she jetted to Lake Como.
Cruise and Holmes became engaged at the Eiffel Tower in Paris last year after a whirlwind romance. Their daughter, Suri, was born in April.
