Marriage is no more a roadblock for Bollywood beauties and this year five actresses, including reigning queens Kareena Kapoor and Vidya Balan, tied the knot with thier long-time beaus. Genelia D'Souza, Esha Deol and Lisa Ray too joined the bandwagon.

Also, it has been a welcome change to see actresses doing everything traditionally - either within their homes or at temples.

IANS gives you a lowdown on Bollywood actresses' weddings of the year:
Kareena Kapoor: Bollywood 'heroine' Kareena shut gossip-mongers when she sealed her four-year-old relationship with actor Saif Ali Khan Oct 16.

The revelry was as big and fat as one would've expected, but there is no doubt that it turned out to be a well-guarded event. Whether it was a pre-wedding rooftop bash, a simple registered marriage affair, a 'nikaah' ceremony at various venues or their grand 'Walima' (reception) in the national capital - Saifeena gave a fairy tale effect to their romance - with the privacy they rightfully deserved.


Vidya Balan: "Ooh la la" girl Vidya Balan's nuptials with Disney UTV managing director Siddharth Roy Kapoor turned out to be another classic case in point for a celebrity's "private affair". Attended by close friends and family members, the Dec 14 wedding in Mumbai was as simple as it could be - weaving together both - Siddharth's Punjabi and Vidya's Tamil traditions.

Genelia D'Souza: Genelia and Riteish Deshmukh set out on their Bollywood journey together with "Tujhe Meri Kasam" in 2003. Who knew that would be the start of a life-long journey for them. One of Bollywood's cutest real life couples, they managed to keep tight-lipped about their relationship for almost eight years.

They had a Maharashtrian-style wedding Feb 3, followed by a simple church wedding. Their wedding reception, of course, was attended by almost the entire Mumbai film fraternity.

Esha Deol: Esha Deol married her businessman beau Bharat Takhtani June 29 in a traditional south Indian ceremony, complete with women in classy Kanjivarams, at Mumbai's Iskcon temple. A Krishna devotee, Esha preferred to keep her nuptials low-key, though a star-studded mehndi took place a day earlier and a reception followed a day after their wedding.

Lisa Ray: Indo-Canadian actress Lisa Rey exchanged wedding vows Oct 20 with management consultant Jason Dehni in California's Napa Valley, where they had also got engaged. Lisa had said in an interview that they wrote their own vows and only exchanged garlands as that's how her father wanted it. She chose only Indian designers to craft her trousseau for her special day - she wore a gown by Wendell Rodricks, and later changed into a Satya Paul sari.
