Nothing can compare to the glitz and glamour of a big fat Indian wedding. If it is a celebrity wedding it doesn’t take too long to become the talk of the town. As 2018 comes to an end we thought we will give you every detail about the top celebrity weddings of 2018, including the functions, the attendees, and the clothes.
Sonam Kapoor and Anand Ahuja’s Wedding
One of the biggest weddings of 2018, Sonam Kapoor and Anand Ahuja’s wedding was an event that was totally star-studded. Although the main ceremony of May 8th was a close-knit family affair, each and every friend of the couple from within the Bollywood Circuit attended the Starry Sangeet Night and the ultimate Bollywood Reception.
Apart from the Bachchans, the Khans, and the Kapoors, there were also Karan Johar, Rani Mukherji, Jackie Shroff, Shahid Kapoor and Mira Rajput, Rekha, Vidya Balan, Kangana Ranaut, and Rajkumar Hirani. Although she stuck to a traditional dressing theme for most of the functions, Sonam chose a modern look for her reception. She looked stunning in Anamika Khanna’s chevron patterned lehenga grey and metallic lehenga choli. Her prince charming looked equally good in a Sherwani and a pair of sneakers from his own label.
Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh’s Wedding
After a love affair of 5 years, Deepika and Ranveer finally tied the knot in traditional Konkani style on November 14th at Lake Como, Italy. The wedding was a very secretive affair far from the reach of the media. The dress code was white and the venue was completely decked in white roses. There was a strict no-phone policy and the guest list included only family members and close friends. Those who performed at the wedding included Villa Del Balbianello, Shubha Mudgal, Harshdeep Kaur, Bobby Pathak, Firoz Khan and Sanjoy Das.
The Next day was the Sindhi Ceremony with red as the theme. The mandap as well as the lower terrace of the villa stood decked in red roses. The couple threw two wedding receptions, one in Bengaluru and the other in Mumbai. Although most of the outfits the couple sported were an ethnic and chic fusion, they decided to go western at the Mumbai reception. While Ranveer got all the attention in his black tux, it was Deepika who stole the show in her red sequined gown.
Isha Ambani and Anand Piramal’s Wedding
The most lavish wedding of 2018 was the Isha Ambani and Anand Piramal wedding at the lake city Udaipur. The invites included US first-lady Hillary Clinton, Henry Kravis and many more business tycoons, and many of the Bollywood biggies. Beyonce, Isha’s favorite American Singer, gave a special performance at the Oberoi Udaivilas hotel.
Mukesh Ambani has splurged about Rs.710 crores for the week-long extravaganza. As per reports more than 100 chartered flights were hired by Ambani to fly guests in and out of Udaipur. Three meals a day were donated to 5,100 people of Udaipur for a period of four days. A crafts bazaar was set up to showcase the works of local artisans.
Mother Nita Ambani’s 35 year old sari is what Isha decided to wear for her wedding. For the reception she wore a gold and ivory lehenga featuring silver and gold floral motifs. The lehenga was custom created for her by Valentino, an Italian Fashion House.
