After months of rumours and denying rumours, Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh’s wedding is finally here. The couple flew off to Lake Como, Italy, where the wedding is taking place in a luxurious water-side villa named Villa del Balbianello.
While the details of the highly private ceremonies might still be unknown to the general public, what anyone can safely place their bets on is Deepika Padukone’s wedding wardrobe. A Sabyasachi fan by any standard, Padukone is bound to be dressed by the designer for her big day. The Padmaavat star is partial his work and has championed his designs on several occasions, including her first puja ceremony for the wedding. From saris to shararas, Padukone in Sabyasachi Couture has always been a winning combination.
But when you have been something akin to a muse to the designer, and have been dressed in extravagant costumes already due to the nature of your profession, how can you possibly top it off any further? Despite what the world expects from Padukone, the only person she should listen to is, well, herself. Her personal style might be less ostentatious than that of her on-screen avatars (though Rani Padmavati and Mastani have probably inspired many a wedding trousseaus), but we can expect nothing less than a stunning ensemble on her big day.
Possibly because of all the times that she has been spotted in saris over the years, chances are that Padukone will choose a lehenga for one of her two wedding ceremonies. According to the most recent word on the grapevine, she is set to wear a red lehenga choli for the Anand Karaj wedding ceremony, while Ranveer Singh will sport a Kanjivaram sherwani for one of the rituals.
As for the events surrounding the big day, one can look forward to Padukone choosing some of the more playful, colour-heavy looks from the designer’s collection. Perhaps she will pick a Kanjeevaram sari for one of them, to give a nod to her South Indian roots.
Sabyasachi Couture goes best with the designer’s heritage jewellery line. Expect to see exquisite handcrafted pieces featuring uncut diamonds, emeralds that will make you green with envy (so to speak), and definitely some with rubies. From what we’ve seen with her Bollywood peers’ weddings, Deepika Padukone’s bridal look too will be one that will be referenced by an entire generation of brides to come. And while one can only guess what she might pick from Sabyasachi’s latest collections, there is every possibility that she might show up in a completely custom-created wardrobe that you’ve never seen before.
