Deepika Padukone & Ranveer Singh (DeepVeer) Wedding Deets

I am going through a bit of a celeb phase and am totally lapping in the details from my favourite wedding of the year so far, Deepika and Ranveer.

The traditional wedding ceremony was held in Italy with a limited number of guests invited. Even prominent bollywood stars were not part of the celebration, and it was limited to close family and friends only. Since the couple are from different communities, they had 2 traditional style wedding ceremonies – Konkani and Sindhi. Each community has it’s own ways of celebrating weddings, and the lucky couple had the chance to partake in both.

As has become customary in recent weddings, the couple also had an elaborate mehndi ceremony where the bride had mehendi applied to her hands and by the looks of the pictures – there was also dancing and generally a good vibe.

The Konkani wedding ceremony looked very traditional and both the bride and groom seem to be having a great time. It was mentioned in some media reports that the red saree that Deepika wore was a Sabyasachi saree, but it was later clarified that it was not from the designer’s collection but a gift. She looked stunning all the same.

The Sindhi wedding style is something I have seen a lot more of, with the bride making an entrance and the like. The couple wore matching colours and looked absolutely adorable. I did have concerns that Ranveer would outshine the bride with his choice of colourful outfits, but thankfully that did not happen 🙂


As the couple got back to Mumbai, on the airport they were seen in relatively muted colours. The style was elegant and a refreshing change from the bold colours at the wedding. I find it absolutely refreshing that Deepika did not opt for heavy neck jewellery and kept her look very simple with the traditional Jhumka earrings.

Ranveer not to be outdone on the florals, also opted for a simple look (by his standards anyway). The timeless pairing of a waistcoat with the white kurta set was perfect and complemented his new wife’s look. I did expect Ranveer to be a little more bold with his choice for the airport, but this look works just fine on him.

The couple arrived in Mumbai recently and were looking absolutely perfect. They wore matching colours and I have to say, Deepika looked absolutely radiant. I think deepika’s traditional style game is right on point, and I love the use of traditional fabrics and textiles in the couple’s wedding. Right from quirky motifs like Ranveer’s elephant motif jacket to the nature inspired motifs on Deepika’s dupatta – the small details were a nod to the traditional.

Reception in Bengaluru

Having multiple wedding ceremonies might have been enough for mere mortals, but for the gods of style and bollywood, multiple events are a must have. Since the number of people attending the couple’s wedding in Italy were limited, they are hosted a reception in Bengaluru. The couple as before look absolutely stunning

Style Tips from Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli’s 2017 Wedding

Lets face it, true style never goes out of fashion. And if you’re looking for Indian wedding style tips, then look no further than THE wedding from last year – Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli’s wedding in Italy. Some may say that this is dated, but I think that the tips from the wedding are timeless and will serve us well in 2018 and 2019.

Style Tip 1: Pastels are here to stay

We have seen a lot of pastels both on real life brides as well as on celebrities over the last few seasons, but Virushka emphatically stated that pastels are here to stay. And may I say, the matching pastels are just to die to. I love the co-ordinated colour tones of the bride and groom.

Style Tip 2: Bold colours and traditional weaves rule the reception

To own your reception look, you cannot go wrong with a vibrant coloured saree made from traditional Indian weaves. Anushka wore a beautiful banarsi silk saree for her Delhi reception. She looks stunning of course not just because she is, but also because she absolutely owned the banarsi saree.

Style Tip 3: Traditional jewellery is perfect for weddings

Almost goes without saying, but traditional rules the roost when it comes to weddings. We have recently seen brides opting for contemporary styles that are delicate and demure. These are great, but for a complete WOW factor like the one Anushka manages, you need to stick to the basics and go for traditional styles. Take it a notch higher with a maang tikka and a haath phool like the one Anushka is seen sporting.

Anushka wears a chunky choker necklace made from un-cut diamonds, and i like this style because it works with so many different looks and clothing types. The wedding styles do get chunky and quite full on, so perhaps get your necklace made into a smaller size after the wedding, so that you can wear even with your contemporary clothes.

Style Tip 4: Contrasting colours for the perfect Insta friendly pics

See what they did here? Beautiful colours and perfect contrast to each other’s outfits makes for the perfect Insta pic. I like this picture especially because Anushka keeps her make-up very natural, keeps her outfit colours bold and has perfectly contrasted it to Virat’s jacket. Love the colours as well – they complement the skin tones perfectly.

Picking the right colours can be tricky, especially for couples. Take the time to think about the colours that complement your skin tone the best and then think about how best to match the colours that both of you will wear – instant insta fame awaits, not to mention loads of compliments from friends and family!
