Deepika Padukone & Ranveer Singh (DeepVeer) Wedding Deets

I am going through a bit of a celeb phase. I 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 only a limited number of guests. The ceremony was limited to close family and friends, with even prominent bollywood stars not invited to the celebration. 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 mehendi ceremony. At this ceremony, the bride had mehendi applied to her hands. From 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. Some media reports claimed that the red saree that Deepika wore was a Sabyasachi, but it was later clarified that it was not from the designer’s collection. The spree was in fact a Kanjivaram saree in which Deepika looked stunning.

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. 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

Best Dressed and Top Fashion Looks at the IIFA Awards 2014

Deepika Padukone at the IIFA Awards 2014

Bollywood’s young brigade definitely ruled the green carpet at the IIFA Awards, showcasing a gorgeous section of Indian fashion and designers with unique styles, impressing myself, and the fans with their elegance and originality.

I have personally chosen each of these looks as I love the diversity, embellishment and colours of each of the gowns which were proudly shown off as the stars one by one graced the green carpet. Vaani Kapoor specifically stood out for me, showcasing a stunning embellished gold tone backless dress by Raakesh Agarvwal, a sure favourite of mine. The highly embellished gowns in general were definitely my preference amongst the fashion designs; it’s a key look for this season and is extremely flattering and stands out from a crowd.

Kalki Koechlin was a key example of how to wear embellishment, wearing Gaurav Gupta, she stood out at the IIFA Awards in this dazzling soft coloured number detailed with shoulder padding detail and long sleeves which created a princess style look.

Deepika Padukone had opted for a red gown by Lebanese designer Zuhair Murad, she looked gorgeous in this figure hugging lace number and simple updo hairstyle, and although the dark berry lips weren’t for everyone, I personally loved them! In general lip colour at the IIFA Awards was very neutral and nude, a trend and overall fashion look that has taken this season by storm, and successfully completes every look. Especially for brides, a nude lip creates a subtle but noticeable make-up look, which will go with almost every gown colour and style.

All in all, I’d say that the Indian wedding dresses and gowns and fashion showcased at the IIFA Awards are some of the best I’ve seen for a long time, they had me wishing I owned half of them!

Here is a selection of some of my favourite styles from the IIFA Awards
