Casually-clad revelers, including Timberlake's "D--k in a Box" co-star Andy Samberg and music manager Johnny Wright, arrived at Cala Masciola beach on the Adriatic Sea around 8:30 p.m. Despite the brisk temperatures, the crowd enjoyed dinner and cocktails at the beachfront setting, which was decorated with lanterns. Music played throughout the festivities, including Marvin Gaye's "Let's Get It On."

At about 9:30 p.m., the crowd was treated to an impressive, 10-minute fireworks display -- and about an hour later, the group returned to the exclusive resort where the nuptials are set to take place imminently.

As Us Weekly revealed exclusively on Wednesday, the actress, 30, and Timberlake, 31, have finally chosen the southern Italy venue to tie the knot this week -- taking "extra precautions" to keep the location and details top-secret. Pals like Timbaland and Biel's "Seventh Heaven" co-star, Beverley Mitchell (who herself wed in Italy), were among the guests who were flown in for the biggest wedding of fall 2012.

"They are ready to get married!" an insider told Us.
