Nina Bruce Clooney and Baria Alamuddin bonded over a day of shopping around Lake Como on Sunday, walking down the street arm-in-arm in one of the small Italian towns near the lake. The pair were all smiles as they browsed an array of silk scarves, getting to know each other before their children’s wedding.
Baria appeared animated, thanks to her broad grin and blue fluffy visor, while Nina Bruce kept it simple in jeans and a neutral button-down shirt.
George and Amal have been spending a lot of time at the actor’s Italian villa, and their parents have enjoyed touring the area in preparation for the nuptials, which a source close to the Alamuddin family told PEOPLE will likely take place in September.
“George and Amal looked very much in love all weekend,” another source said of their weekend visit in June. “They were all smiles, holding hands. There was an air of romance.”
