Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher Wear traditional indian attires for Google executive, Nikesh Arora’s Indian Wedding in Italy

Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher got multi-culti last weekend! The engaged couple attended the wedding of Google executive Nikesh Arora, held at the luxurious Borgo Egnazia Resort in Puglia, Italy, where they participated in a traditional Indian ceremony.

Kunis, 30, currently pregnant with the pair's first child, and Kutcher dressed in head to toe traditional garb for the festivities. The ravishing actress looked pretty in a mint green outfit embellished with crystals around her neckline and burgeoning tummy. Kutcher, 36, complemented his fiancee's outfit with a long-sleeve, seafoam green tunic.

Though the couple attended the lavish bash as guests, Kunis told W magazine in its August 2014 issue that she plans to have no one at her upcoming nuptials. "My theory on weddings is: Don't invite anyone," the Jupiter Ascending actress said. "Do it privately and secretly. My parents are okay with that. They're just excited that I said yes."

Do you all think her decision to not invite anyone to her wedding is bizarre?
