Each invite was delivered by courier to family, friends and celebrity pals in London, Australia and the US to ensure they did not end up in the wrong hands.
Simon Cowell, Chloe Green, David Walliams and Lara Stone, and many of Holly's Strictly Come Dancing buddies are said to be attending.

Property tycoon Candy proposed to the Australian star just before Christmas in the Maldives.

'I said yes!' The couple became engaged in the Maldives in December
She wrote: 'And I said YES!!! ♥ Happiest day of my life!!!!! Xxxx.'
The couple started dating in late 2009 after meeting at a mutual friend's dinner party.
Recalling their meeting in an interview last year, she said: 'I didn’t know anything about him. I just thought “Cor, if I didn’t fancy you so much, we’d be the best of friends. Instead, I just want to make out with you all the time.”'
They soon moved in together last year and have become regulars on the London society scene.
During Valance's appearance on Strictly Come Dancing last year, supportive Candy was often seen on screen cheering her on from the audience.
Meanwhile, it was recently announced the Valance will front a new style series for Discovery Real Time alongside Brix Smith-Start and Paul Hartnett.
