The much-in-love couple had kept their relationship under wraps since a long time but that didn't leave the media from speculating. However, a month ago, Karan and Bipasha decided to share the good news with their fans and revealed their wedding date through an absolutely adorable pre-wedding shoot! While Bong beauty Bipasha was dressed in a white, off-shoulder dreamy wedding gown, Karan looked dapper in a crisp black suit replete with a bow-tie. Bipasha's soft curls and an embellished headband gave a feminine touch to her ensemble while her bridal bouquet completed the perfect feel of a Christian wedding. The couple posed for some fun, candid shots and we can't stop crushing over them.

Last week, the magnanimous celebrations officially began with a low-key pooja held on Thursday at Bipasha's residence. The pooja was conducted according to Bengali rituals and our lovely bride-to-be looked every bit gorgeous. She wore a pretty pink saree with an embellished blouse and teamed it up with a matching kundan set. Straight locks, kohl-lined eyes, rosy cheeks, glossy pink lips and a tiny bindi added to her bridal glow!
Mr. Groom complemented her perfectly in a classy chikankari bandhgala.
Next up was the dreamy mehendi and sangeet ceremony held in a high-end lounge in Juhu on Friday. A look at the pictures and one would know that Bipasha truly swears by the colour pink. The venue was decorated in a mix of vintage Indian and Parisian style with mogra curtains and gota hangings, all in shades of pink. While Karan looked uber cool in a white, offbeat angrakha kurta-pyjama designed by Antar Agni, it was Bipasha who stole the show! She looked straight out of a fairytale in a white and pink floral lehenga and a pale gold angrakha choli, designed by Anushree Reddy. Take inspiration from the way she used a pink floral tiara, bajubandhs and haath panjas to accessorize her ensemble; not to forget, her classic pair of jhumkas, satlada and the chic floral clutch. Her breezy, pastel makeup perfectly complemented her dusky, sexy skin tone. We must say, Bipasha, you have set the standards high by creating the perfect look for a day wedding event! Kudos!

It's finally the turn of the ceremonious wedding event which was held at the actress' residence in Khar. The venue was beautifully decorated in an all-white Bengali theme, complete with traditional alpona (sandalwood rangoli)! Bipasha looked absolutely resplendent in a stunning red Sabyasachi creation. Her hair was gathered in a top-knot Indian-style bun, complete with a gajra. Intricately designed jhumkas, nath, mathapatti, haath panjas and an exquisite bridal choker neckpiece perfectly complemented her heavily embellished lehenga. Special credit should be given to her sultry red lip shade and the bright red bindi; not to forget that the typical Bengali chandan makeup along with the classic white mukut made her look like the perfect Bong bride! Karan looked like the perfect traditional Bong groom in a pure white classic bandhgala and dhoti, while his white shoes added a quirky modern touch.
The fairytale wedding came to an end with the talk-of-the-town reception party wherein the biggest of Bollywood celebrities came to congratulate the new-wedded couple. While everyone was dressed at their impeccable best, we just can't take our eyes off the crazy lovebirds. Bipasha looked stunning in a shimmery gold angrakkha and teamed it up with a regal, emerald statement neckpiece and a gold clutch. She contrasted her gold ensemble with bright red lips and a big bindi, and kept her gorgeous tresses open. Karan looked suave in a white pant-suit and a black bow-tie.
Bipasha's infectious laughter made her excitement quite evident; her bridal glow was like the icing on her glitzy wedding wardrobe. This glamorous monkey wedding was nothing short of a majestic fairytale! Wishing Mr. and Mrs. Grover all the love and happiness in the world! :)
