A lot of thought and planning go into pulling off the perfect wedding, right from the wedding decor to the food to, of course, the outfit. Be it a lavish OTT wedding or an intimate one, every bride-to-be dreams off looking like a princess on the most important day of her life; as a result brides-to-be often spend months before they zero down on their final wedding outfit.
When Deepika Padukone tied the knot with Ranveer Singh a few days back in Italy, we could not help but go gaga over just how amazing she looked styled by ace designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee. Over the years, Sabyasachi brides have come to become a phenomenon of sorts and it is every bride’s dream to pull off the famed Sabyasachi bridal look. Since Bollywood will forever be our inspiration when it comes to all things fashion, we looked back to find out 9 beautiful Bollywood brides who made for beautiful Sabyasachi brides.
The thought of an Indian Disney princess-bride will take you back to Anushka Sharma’s gorgeous pink and beige floral lehenga, that Sabyasachi put together for her Big Day. The lehenga was everything-dreamy, subtle and blended into the Tuscan settings perfectly.
Anushka’s outfit for her mehndi ceremony was nothing like her wedding lehenga; it was bright, vibrant and full of colour, suiting her exuberant personality perfectly! The horizontally striped lehenga skirt paired with bold and colourful floral print blouse was a feast for our eyes.
In a spin-off on all her subtle wedding look, Anushka’s wedding reception in Mumbai was high on glitter and bling. Her lehenga was the right beige with a lot of shimmer-embroidery work on it. Though she flaunted her choodas and wore an amazing diamond-and-pearl neck-piece, with simple diamond studs, what was not to be missed was her high-waist kamarpatta, ornamented with a silver panther motif.
Anushka’s look for her Delhi reception was what we call ‘vision in red’. Along with a red Benarasi saree, the star wore an uncut diamond choker and jhumkas from the Sabyasachi Bridal Jewelry collection. When asked about the saree, the couturier had said, “I know copies of Anushka’s sari will flood the entire country”.
Beauty and simplicity define Asin. While she chose a Vera Wang creation for her white wedding, Asin chose a Sabyasachi creation for her Indian wedding ceremony. The beauty of the dress was in the minimal red embroidery peeping in between the silvery beige border and motifs of her really long dupatta.
Bipasha Basu chose red for her wedding outfit, and Sabyasachi did full justice to the Bengali beauty with his creation. Though her whole outfit was heavily embroidered with different types of motifs, it all looked perfect! Right from her lehenga to her big bindi, lip colour and nail colour, Bipasha rocked the red with great panache!
Soha Ali Khan
Another princess wedding dress we could not keep awing about was Soha Ali Khan’s unique wedding outfit. Her golden lehenga skirt had a big peach border embroidered with golden zari. What made her whole outfit unique was her orange-hued dupatta that she draped as ‘ghungat’. The emerald neck-piece contrasted as well as complemented her whole look perfectly.
Sagarika Ghatge and Zaheer Khan did not have a marriage ceremony really; the cute couple opted for a ‘court marriage’, instead. But that did not stop Sagarika from flaunting an amazing bright red saree for the event. Though the saree might have looked relatively simple, we could not help admiring the design of the deep red blouse that was very intricately embroidered with gold zari. Her chunky silver jewellery and typical Maharashtrian green glass bangles with chunky gold kadas too are not be missed.
For her wedding reception, Sagarika again opted for a Sabyasachi creation. Not many brides are known to opt for a white and gold combination, but then Sabyasachi knows perfectly how to blend the two and create a masterpiece! Needless to say, she looked graceful!
Since we are used to seeing Vidya Balan sporting amazing Sabyasachi creations regularly, it did not come as a surprise when she chose to wear his creation on her D-day. The gorgeous red saree was paired with typical gold temple jewellery.
Amrita Puri, of ‘Aisha’ fame, looked perfect in her pastel-hued Sabyasachi creation on her D-day. Her lehenga had intricate yellow, green, blue, pink embroidery. That and her princess-like dewy make-up added just about the right amount of bubbliness to her overall look.
Aamna Sarif, of the Ek Villain fame (played Riteish Deshmukh’s on-screen wife), look dazzling in her Sabyasachi creation of red and orange-hued wedding lehenga. Her whole attire had varied embroidered motifs and was paired with a set of pearl and kundan jewellery. She looked dainty and graceful, epitomising the Indian bride.
We have no words for Deepika Padukone’s wedding trousseau created and styled by Sabyasachi. He designed and created her entire Sindhi-bride outfit and styled her Konkani-bride attire.
Her mehndi outfit was the perfect combination of pink and maroon, and was so fresh to the eye. What we loved the most was how the bride and groom’s outfits complemented each other.
Her gold zari embroidered bright red Benarasi dupatta (and Ranveer Singh’s jacket too, of course) was absolutely unmissable on the moti-coloured kurta-chudidar she wore for flight back to homeland post-wedding. Indeed, Sabyasachi made sure that everything about her look was soaked in royalty.
