10/24/2012 by Corinne Heller

Jessica Biel wore pink to her and Justin Timberlake's wedding in Italy, as seen on People magazine's latest cover.

The two are featured on the cover of the outlet's October 19 issue. It includes exclusive photos of the celebrity couple's nuptials, which the bride dubbed a "total fantasy experience." Their ceremony took place at the Bordo Egnazia resort in the southern Italian city of Puglia on October 19.

This marks the first marriage for Timberlake, 31, and Biel, 30. The two had dated on and off for about five years and got engaged in December 2011.

Timberlake had previously dated the likes of Cameron Diaz and Britney Spears, whose photo is also featured on People's cover, alongside a teaser headline about the trial of Sam Lufti, her former associate and self-proclaimed manager, who is suing her over alleged lost wages.

Check out 5 facts about the wedding of Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake:

1. Jessica Biel wore a custom pink gown by Giambattista Valli.

The actress and "7th Heaven" alum, who is pictured sitting down on People's cover, is wearing a custom, strapless, petal pink Giambattista Valli Haute Couture gown and an updo hairstyle with her bangs swept to the side and her veil attrached to the back. She and is holding a bouquet of white flowers.

"The strapless gown of silk mousseline and silk organza consisted of a light pink floral motif and ruffles. The veil, which consists of Biel's heirloom pearls, was also created for her by Giambattista Valli," Us Weekly magazine quoted a rep for the Italian-born designer as saying, adding: "Jessica wore four looks with shoes and clutches from the Giambattista Valli S/S 2013 collection to events leading up to the ceremony."

Biel has worn Giambattista Valli apparel before, as recently as August, when she attended the London premiere of her latest movie, "Total Recall," in a white, frilly dress from the designer's Spring 2012 Couture collection. He had launched a bridal gown line in 2008. Prices at the time began at $11,000.

2. The couple's moms followed suit.

Biel's mother and Timberlake's mother both wore Giambattista Valli Haute Couture gowns to the wedding, Us Weekly reported.

3. Justin Timberlake - actor, singer ... fashion designer?

Timberlake, an actor, singer and former member of the boy band 'N Sync, is seen on People's cover jumping for joy in a Tom Ford tuxedo that the magazine says he helped design.

4. ... but mainly, and at least for his wedding, singer.

Timberlake played the guitar and serenaded Biel as she walked down the aisle," People magazine stated, quoting him as saying: "It was an original piece I wrote specifically for the evening and for her."

5. Where were the 'N Sync alums?

The two wed before close family and friends. As reported last week, the guests included Jimmy Fallon, who has often featured Timberlake on his NBC talk show, Andy Samberg, who starred with the singer in the "SNL" skit-turned-viral video "[Expletive] in a Box," Timbaland and Beverley Mitchell, who played Biel's sister on the series "7th Heaven."

The only 'N Sync alum who attended the wedding was Chris Kirkpatrick. JC Chasez went to his brother's wedding, which took place a day later, on October 20, OTRC.com has learned. The remaining two former 'N Sync singers, Lance Bass and Joey Fatone, did not attend Timberlake's wedding.

Bonus fact: Jessica Biel is not the first celebrity to think pink on her wedding day. While white, ivory and cream wedding gowns are the norm for American ceremonies, a few stars have opted to wear pink or other colorful dresses while getting hitched.

Anne Hathaway wed Adam Shulman in a custom pink Valentino gown earlier this month. Gwen Stefani, who wore a dip-dyed pink silk Dior gown, designed by John Galliano, when she and Gavin Rossdale tied the knot in 2002.

Porti de Rossi donned a pink and ivory Zac Posen gown with a full chiffon skirt to her wedding to Ellen DeGeneres in 2008 and singer Lisa Loeb, who wore a strapless pink Amsale Blue Label gown to her and Roey Hershkovitz's 2009 wedding.

Julianne Moore, 42, wore a lilac Prada dress when she and Bart Freundlich tied the knot in 2003. And recently, on October 6, "Joan of Arcadia" star Amber Tamblyn wore a canary yellow-colored dress when she married "Arrested Development" actor David Cross.
