The wedding trends were so impressive that they are inspiring unique wedding ideas in 2019
- Priyanka Chopra – Nick Jonas
A wedding ceremony so exquisite that one couldn’t help but feel a little envious. The celebrations started off wonderfully with a bridal shower at Tiffany’s Blue Box Café in New York City. Then came the lavish wedding held at Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur, Rajasthan, in the beginning of December. This wedding event left no space for any other wedlock on the Google search engine in 2018. Since they got married, both the Indian and Christian way, the celebrations were endless. Be it the vibrant red lehenga by Indian fashion designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee or the white gown by Ralph Lauren – the outfit choices were spot on!
- Ranveer Singh – Deepika Padukone
A jaw-dropping display of love and loyalty! Italy being the most favoured wedding destination, has hosted many celebrity weddings. Keeping it private, the so-in-love Bollywood couple chose Villa del Balbianello at Lake Como in Italy as their wedding venue!
After their dreamy destination wedding, the couple picked one of the top 5-star hotels in Mumbai, Grand Hyatt, as the reception venue. Needless to say, the function was star-studded! It was no less than a fashion extravaganza – the traditional blushing pink lehenga by Sabyasachi Mukherjee took the ‘best outfit’ crown. Deepika, being the queen of elegance, made splendid fashion statements with outfits like the personalised dupatta that stated ‘Sada Saubhagyawati Bhava’ on the border. The two have set the bar high for upcoming celebrity weddings in 2019.
- Meghan Markle – Prince Harry
The wedding announcement that made headlines across the globe! The royal ceremony took place at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle. The entire occasion gave everyone a taste of royalty and elegance – right from the decor to the outfits. The stunning wedding dress was designed by Clare Waight Keller for Givenchy. The flower bouquet included Forget-Me-Nots (Princess Diana’s favourite), sweet peas, lily of the valley, astilbe, jasmine and astrantia. Unlike typical fruit cakes, they opted for lemon elderflower cake by Claire Ptak. Embellished with everything rare, it was a royal affair that made history!
- Isha Ambani – Anand Piramal
Isha, the daughter of Mukesh Ambani (Reliance Industries’ Chairman and Asia’s richest man), and Anand, the son of Ajay Piramal, tied the knot in December. The wedding was held at the Ambani residence, Antilia in Mumbai. Bollywood celebrities, politicians, singers and sports icons graced the occasion with their presence. It was home to floral chandeliers, art installations and a majestic entrance. The venue was a sight to behold with beautiful decor, elaborate stage set-ups and unusual varieties of Dutch flowers. The ceremony left everyone spellbound!
