The couple threw a casual pre-wedding bash on Wednesday in Puglia, Italy, at the Cala Masciola beach on the Adriatic Sea, the magazine said.

Guests included comedian Andy Samberg, who co-starred with Timberlake in an Emmy-winning ‘Saturday Night Live’ digital short and romantic comedy film ‘Friends With Benefits'.

The to-be-groom has reportedly prepared a special wedding dance on his favorite song  ‘It's gonna be me,' sung by him and his band 'N Sync for their album ‘No Strings Attached’ in 2000, IANS reported.

"Justin has been working on this for months. Jessica used to love the track growing up and he wants it as a special treat," The sun quoted a source as saying.

"It will be very much tongue-in-cheek. There will be loads of exaggerated boy band moves and poses. She's going to love it," the source added.

This is the first wedding for singer-actor Timberlake, 31, and ‘Total Recall’ actress Biel, 30, who have been dating on and off since 2007. They announced their engagement at the beginning of this year.

Timberlake has previously had high-profile relationships with pop singer Britney Spears and actress Cameron Diaz.

Tennessee native Timberlake, who rose to fame as a singer in boy band N'Sync, forged a successful solo music career before moving into films. He played Napster founder Sean Parker in the Oscar-nominated Facebook film ‘The Social Network’ and more recently starred alongside Amy Adams and Clint Eastwood in ‘Trouble With The Curve’.

Biel, who was born in Minnesota, started her career on television in the long-running family drama ‘7th Heaven’.  She broke into movies in 2003 with the remake of horror flick ‘Texas Chainsaw Massacre’ and has since been seen in ‘The A-Team’ and ‘New Year's Eve’ among several others.
