By Christopher Rocchio, 02/23/2007
Wedding bells will soon be ringing for first season The Apprentice winner Bill Rancic and E! News anchor Giuliana DePandi, as the couple reportedly announced they'll exchange vows on Saturday, September 1 in Ravello, Italy.
"Giuliana grew-up in Naples and this is just outside her hometown," Rancic told OK! Weekly in the magazine's February 26 issue. According to Rancic, somewhere between 150 and 200 guests will attend the wedding -- including his boss, Donald Trump.
"I knew instantly," Rancic told OK!. "The best compliment I can give her is that she's authentic. She's as real as they come."
While Rancic said he normally likes to wear Armani while working as part of the Trump Organization, he's going to show-off some different threads during his wedding.
"Giuliana's father owns a men's clothing store in Washington, D.C., and he has offered to custom-make me a tuxedo," Rancic told OK!. "I think I have to take that -- it's quite an honor."
As for what they bride will be wearing, Rancic said DePandi is searching for "the perfect wedding gown" and has already visited Monique Lhuillier and Melissa Sweet. However he's not too concerned with what she chooses.
