At about two weeks away from the much-awaited Deepika Padukone – Ranveer Singh wedding, rumours are rife on the details surrounding the celebrations and the magnitude of it all after the couple officially announced their nuptials.
From the bridal trousseau to the extravagant locations, it may all have been kept hush, but now it seems there’s information out about it all.
The Bridal Dress
Speculations were rife that Sabyasachi Mukherjee is expected to design Deepika’s outfit for the wedding. The actress has been his muse for years and prefers wearing his pieces on special occasions. In fact, whenever asked who her favourite designer is, Dippy does not hesitate from mentioning Sabya.
Sabyasachi posted a picture on Instagram featuring Deepika in one of his ravishing red numbers from his latest bridal collection. The Padmaavat star is donned in a Banarasi saree with a heavy choker, personifying a quintessential Indian bride in vintage red glam. Although the design is from a bridal assortment, the timings of the post are vital.
The couple, who has been together for almost 6 years and decided to get married on the anniversary of the release date of their film, Ram Leela, have not shared any other details, however leading dailies have reported that Ranveer Singh will fly from Mumbai on November 10, 2018, whereas the couple’s sangeet ceremony will take place on November 13.
The Wedding Ceremony
Reportedly, the couple will have two separate wedding ceremonies. According to Mid-Day, “Since Deepika is a South Indian and Ranveer is of Sindhi-Punjabi origin, the two families decided to follow customs practised by both communities. A South Indian wedding has been planned for November 14, complete with Kannadiga rituals. The next day will see the couple solemnise their relationship as per the customs of a North Indian wedding (Anand Karaj).”
After the traditional ceremonies, the couple will host a party on November 15, 2018. They have invited very few close friends and family members for the wedding at Lake Como in Italy. They will tie the knot at the magnificent Villa Del Balbianello.
The Guest List
Believed to have invited a plethora of celebrities, Ranveer and Deepika have reportedly cut down on the list and have only invited 4 people from the industry. Deepika debuted in the industry with Farah Khan and Shah Rukh Khan, so she has invited them. Sanjay Leela Bhansali is also on the guest list. He has worked with the actors on 3 successful films. Ranveer Singh considers Aditya Chopra his mentor and hence has invited him.
The couple will host a grand reception for their friends from the industry. “The two will host a reception at Grand Hyatt on December 1. As their wedding is an intimate affair, the reception will be a grand one where they will invite their Bollywood friends,” a source informed Mid-Day.
Deepika and Ranveer’s wedding will be a private affair but they will be celebrating with their industry friends on December 1, 2018. A grand reception has been planned at the Grand Hyatt in Mumbai. However, for their traditional ceremony in Bangalore, Deepika Padukone’s parents have invited their close friends and extended family members for the reception. It will take place on November 21, 2018, at the ballroom of The Leela Palace Hotel.
Before this, the couple will get married in the presence of close friends and family at Villa Del Balbianello. The villa overlooks Lake Como and has been the wedding destination of many personalities. Reports also suggest that their pre-wedding festivities will begin in Bangalore ten days before their wedding.
