What encapsulates the idea of a ‘big fat Indian wedding’ better than a star-studded, dreamy Bollywood affair? With the wedding season around the corner, dive right in to draw inspiration from these ethereal Bollywood brides who aced their wedding looks.
- Deepika Padukone
One of the most awaited celebrity weddings, the Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone wedding epitomized the grand celebrity wedding. Choosing to stay true to her roots, Deepika looked stunning in her traditional Konkani bridal look. Donning a dull gold and red Kanjivaram saree, she chose to pair this with temple jewellery, a mathapatti and layered necklaces. With each of the other wedding dresses being carefully styled and selected by none other than Sabyasachi, Deepika was truly a sight to behold in her lush red and gold wedding outfits.
- Anushka Sharma
The #Virushka wedding took the world by storm, bringing together Bollywood and cricket fans alike. With a wedding set in Florence, Anushka chose to pick an outfit that would blend in with the picturesque Tuscan surroundings, and true to himself, Sabyasachi brought the ideas to life. A blush pink silk floss lehenga with exotic birds and butterflies, it is believed that the bridal outfit took 67 karigars and 32 days to complete. Anushka chose to complete the look with handcrafted Jadau jewellery featuring handcrafted uncut diamonds and pearls.
- Sonam Kapoor
As India’s iconic fashion queen, Sonam Kapoor’s wedding to long-time beau Anand Ahuja was complete with stunning wedding dresses created by a range of designers from Abu-Jani and Sandeep Khosla to Anamika Khanna and the lesser known Anuradha Vakil. Choosing to opt for a traditional bridal look, Sonam dazzled in shades of red and gold with lotus motifs embroidered opulently across her lehenga. For her Sangeet, the bride upped the glamour quotient in a stunning white and gold lehenga with a heavily embroidered blouse, and classic Kundan jewellery to match.
- Priyanka Chopra
In a classic East meets West love story for the generations, the Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas wedding was nothing short of a fairy tale. Honouring each other’s faith, the couple chose to have both a Christian and Hindu ceremony. Priyanka looked absolutely radiant in her custom-made Ralph Lauren wedding dress with hand-embroidered and hand-beaded floral motifs, scalloped sleeves, high neck collar and a regal 75-foot long tulle veil. For the Hindu ceremony, the bride opted for a quintessential red Sabyasachi lehenga with hand cut organza flowers and layers of thread work.
- Neha Dhupia
Neha Dhupia and Angad Bedi’s summer Sikh wedding was an intimate and enchanting affair. Opting for an unconventional hue for her wedding outfits, Neha looked drop-dead gorgeous in her off-white Anavila designer saree for her chooda ceremony. The elegance of her Anita Dongre bubble-gum pink wedding lehenga was further brought out through her net dupatta, the traditional red choodas and her simple maang-tika. To complete the look, the bride chose to adorn her traditional bun with jasmine flowers.
