Indian weddings are a grand affair, and when it comes to celebrity weddings, they are nothing short of a fairytale. From elaborate ceremonies to extravagant outfits, everything about celebrity weddings is larger than life. Over the past few years, we have seen a new trend emerge in celebrity weddings – pastel-colored outfits. From Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma, lovingly referred to as Virushka, to Siddharth Malhotra and Kiara Advani, known as SidKiara, celebrity couples are redefining Indian wedding fashion with their unique and refreshing pastel-colored outfits.
The trend of pastel-colored outfits at Indian weddings is not new. Pastels have always been a popular choice for daytime events such as mehndi and haldi ceremonies. However, what makes this trend different is the way pastels are being incorporated into the bride and groom’s main wedding outfits.
Let’s take a look at some of the celebrity couples who have embraced this trend and rocked it with panache.
Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma
Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma’s wedding in December 2017 was one of the most talked-about events of the year. Anushka’s pastel pink lehenga with intricate embroidery by designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee stole the show. The outfit was paired with a stunning diamond necklace and earrings. Virat, on the other hand, opted for a beige and ivory sherwani with a rose pink pagdi (turban), which perfectly complemented Anushka’s outfit.
Neha Dhupia and Angad Bedi
Neha Dhupia’s bridal look for her wedding ceremony with Angad Bedi in 2018 conveyed the message that simplicity is elegance. She wore a baby pink lehenga designed by couturier Anita Dongre that featured a combination of traditional Rajasthani embroideries such as gota patti, dori, zardozi, and zari. The lightweight of the lehenga added to its graceful appeal. Angad Bedi chose a white sherwani and matched Neha’s outfit with a pink turban.
Athiya Shetty and K L Rahul
On January 23, actress Athiya Shetty married cricketer KL Rahul while donning a graceful bridal look. She opted for a subtle pink silk lehenga, designed by Anamika Khanna, featuring delicate chikankari work with zardozi and jaali details. To elevate her bridal look, Athiya adorned herself with elaborate jewelry. K L Rahul, on the other hand, opted for an ivory sherwani that perfectly complemented Athiya’s attire.
Richa Chaddha & Ali Fazal
For their main wedding ceremony, Richa and Ali adorned matching ivory outfits designed by Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla, who are known for their expertise in Nawabi style with a touch of Lucknow’s rich couture heritage. As the couture maestros, Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla were the perfect choice for the couple to execute their vision of a regal wedding ensemble. Richa’s bridal look exuded vintage charm and traditional elegance, with her choice of a stunning ivory gharara set adorned with intricate chikankari embroidery and a matching dupatta draped gracefully across her front. The exquisite craftsmanship was further elevated by the intricate mirror work featured across the bodice. The ensemble perfectly showcased one of India’s most beloved crafts that originated from the skilled artisans of Lucknow.
Alia Bhatt & Ranbir Kapoor
Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor’s wedding looks were unconventional, as they opted for Sabyasachi ensembles that were color-coordinated. Alia ditched the traditional red lehenga and instead wore a stunning hand-dyed ivory organza saree featuring fine tilla embroidery. She accessorized her bridal look with a handwoven tissue veil and complemented it with hand-strung pearls and polki jewels, including a regal choker, matha-patti, and exquisite jhumkas. With subtle makeup and a delicate black bindi, all eyes were on Alia’s graceful appearance. Ranbir, on the other hand, looked dapper in an embroidered silk sherwani, adorned with Sabyasachi uncut diamond buttons, silk organza safa, and shawl with zari embroidery. He accessorized his look with Sabyasachi Heritage jewelry, which included a striking multistrand pearl necklace.
Siddharth Malhotra and Kiara Advani
Siddharth Malhotra and Kiara Advani’s wedding too gave us major pastel goals. Kiara’s pastel pink and blue lehenga with intricate embroidery by designer Manish Malhotra was perfect for a day wedding, while Siddharth’s pastel pink and white sherwani with gold embroidery added the perfect touch of sophistication. That apart, the couple’s love for the city of domes inspired the Roman architecture-inspired embroidery detailing on their wedding ensemble, which was further accentuated by the carefully chosen color palette.
