According to Deccan Chronicle, the wedding ceremony will take place at a farmhouse in Chattrapur, and will be followed by a grand party at the Trident, which will be attended by the couple’s close friends and family.

Talking about the guest list, it’s going to be an intimate affair. About 500 guests have been invited, reported NDTV. These are believed to include just close family, very few friends and Mira, who is believed to have told several friends not on the list since they were asked to keep the wedding small.
A mehndi and a sangeet will reportedly be held at the Trident today. According to a report, the sangeet playlist includes several of Shahid’s hits - Mauja Hi Mauja, Sari Ke Fall Sa and Tu Mere Agal Bagal Hain. A reception will be held in Mumbai on July 12, for which there will be a separate invite sent out.

The wedding feast is going to consist of a vegetarian fare. Guests at the reception, however, will be able to pack their plates with non-vegetarian delicacies. Among other goodies, personalised chocolate bars have been created for the shaadi by Delhi-based bakery Smitten.
Actor Kareena Kapoor Khan, who dated Shahid some years ago, famously told the press she would be happy to attend the wedding if invited. There is no word if she has been.
