Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel are going to great lengths to keep their nuptials hush-hush – even from their VIP guests.

In fact, those invited didn’t even know where they were going until they landed at a stop en route to their ultimate destination, Celebuzz has learned.

That stop was in Germany, where friends and family were given further travel instructions.

What were the top-secret details?

“Guests flew out on Monday and landed in Frankfurt with no further instructions,” a source told Celebuzz. “Upon their arrival, they were all given itineraries and tickets to the south of Italy, where the wedding festivities will take place.”

Biel has also kept tight-lipped about her plans and the week-long celebration before the big day — even trying to throw people off the wedding scent.

In May she told French Gala magazine: “I don’t think our marriage will change anything. It will be a challenge finding a balance between my private life, family and work, and I’m ready.”

As for kids, the 30-year-old actress said there’s no rush. “For me, getting married doesn’t mean we should limit ourselves to some predefined idea. Rather, it’s an opportunity to explore new things in life.”

She spoke to the Chicago-Sun Times in August and said: “I’ve done almost nothing! I’m just enjoying being engaged. I do feel like there is a lot of time and nothing needs to be rushed. Everyone tells me that being engaged is the really special moment.

“Not that it gets bad when you get married. But being engaged is just absolutely amazing. You’re in this romantic, ahhhhhh, breathless moment that I’m just trying to extend as long as possible.”

The same month, she told E! at the L.A. premiere of Total Recall: “Everyone’s been telling us, ‘Enjoy the engagement because it goes away so quickly.’ So I’ve been sort of loving that idea.”

Timberlake and Biel got engaged over the holidays last year. They began dating in 2007 and broke up briefly in 2011 before getting back together later that year. He proposed on a mountain top in Jackson, Wyoming, a location dear to both their hearts.

The Trouble With the Curve actor kicked off the pre-matrimonial celebrations last month at his bachelor party at Tryst nightclub at the Wynn Las Vegas, according to Us Weekly. The singer-turned-actor, along with his 20 closest friends, sipped tequila – Timberlake’s own liquor, 901 Tequila, to be exact — and danced to the musical stylings of DJ Spider. Friend and frequent collaborator Timbaland also stopped by Tryst to wish Timberlake well and is reportedly going to the Italian nuptials.

He continued the party with a trip to Mexico too.

Italy must hold a special place in the happy couple’s hearts since they attended Biel’s former 7th Heaven co-star Beverley Mitchell’s wedding there in 2008; Biel was a bridesmaid.

And one thing’s for sure:  Timberlake loves his wife-to-be, gushing to Vanity Fair: “She is the single-handedly most significant person in my life. In my 30 years, she is the most special person?” he said. “I don’t want to say much more, because I have to protect things that are dear to me — for instance, her.”
