It was the big Bollywood wedding, with Shahid Kapoor tying the knot with Mira Rajput! The couple looked ravishing throughout their functions, keeping their outfits elegant and simple. After being officially wed, Shahid and Mira wound up the festivities in style by hosting a reception at the Oberoi hotel in Gurgaon on July 7. While the wedding was a low key affair with only close friends and family in attendance, the reception had around 500 guests.
According to a tabloid “Shahid favours amber lights, so the decor will definitely feature it. All the sections are being created with a different mood and setting, each being drastically contrasting from the other. Rustic, rugged and natural organic white – that is what Shahid and Mira’s reception venue will look like.”
A few days ago, the reception card started doing the rounds on social media. The card is designed by Delhi-based Ravish Kapoor. The midnight blue and silver invitation is not just royal but also contains a silver chrome plate which can be used as a security pass too. Shahid has taken personal interest in everything related to his wedding, be it the design of reception card or the decor of the reception venue.
Shahid is expecting the biggest wigs from Bollywood considering he has worked with most of them.
The hotel itself has been chosen after considering the privacy that it provides. The main gate is at least a 100 meters away from the porch. No problem for high-profile Bollywood couples who are usually in the ‘just friends’ category.
The number of guests is unknown, but we do know that the reception will be held at multiple levels. Sources say that Shahid has booked dinner halls at the 36th and the 37th floor of the hotel. The terrace garden that gives a glorious view of the city has also been booked. A total of five venues – Mekong, Asilo, Zenith party suite, Exo and Li Bai have been booked.
But while the food at the wedding in Delhi was strictly vegetarian, sources claim that the cuisine at the reception here in Mumbai will vary. The party starts at 8.30pm IST. We’ll keep you updated on the latest developments.
