2018 was bundled with celebrity weddings! We saw many of our favorite Bollywood celebs entering matrimonial bliss. And since you all know how Bollywood is our go-to inspiration for everything weddings, we dug the celebrity weddings that took place in 2018 and chalked out some of the best wedding trends set by them. Right from bridal fashion to groom's jewellery, the trends set by 2018 celeb weddings are sure to rule this year and hence deserve your attention.
So without any further ado, here are top 2018 wedding trends you can follow in 2019!
No matter how much noise pastel-hued bridal lehengas are making these days, it is Red that emerged as the most sought-after choice for our Bollywood brides this year. Right from Sonam Kapoor to Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone—all the leading ladies embraced red on the most auspicious day of their life. And brides who don't wanna go all-red can take inspiration from Isha Ambani who added the timeless appeal to her bridal look by carrying a red dupatta.
Weddings in 2018 were all about personalizations! Couples added personalized touches to each aspect of weddings and made their revelries more meaningful. And hey, our beloved celebs too took this game a notch above and got their wedding outfits personalized in the most thoughtful ways. Priyanka Chopra's civil ceremony gown designed by Ralph had her wedding date and her spouse's name embroidered on it. The waistbelt of her Sabyasachi lehenga too had the names of her parents and Nick's name etched on it. The 'Sadaa Saubhagyawati Bhava' embroidery on Deepika's bridal dupatta has already become a rage.
That's not all! Nick Jonas' wedding tux had a lace of Priyanka's wedding dress sewn into his jacket which was further embroidered with Urdu words, 'My Jaan'.
Now, this is yet another prominent and one of the best trends set by our celeb brides. Ditching the quintessential OTT makeup, all the celebrity brides swore embraced their natural beauty by opting for minimal makeup with nude lips. We're crushing hard over this trend and can't wait for brides to accentuate their beauty and not transform themselves with makeup on their big day.
While there's a sudden rage of going all minimal on the wedding day, choices of celebrity brides turned out to be contrary. Most of the 2018 celeb brides (including Isha Ambani, Deepika, Sonam Kapoor, and Priyanka Chopra) decked themselves with jewels on the wedding day. Right from stacking the bangles to layering up heavy necklaces—they proved every bride must celebrate her once-in-a-lifetime-day with gobs of jewellery.
Grooms too must not stay behind when it comes to jewellery! Our celeb grooms styled their wedding outfits with some of the most amazing neck jewellery pieces, and that's the inspiration every groom-to-be must look for.
Neatly tied buns with minimal adornments for wedding day was another favorite trend among celeb brides. And we are all hearts for it!
We spotted many quirky Kaleeras designs in 2018 but the celeb brides chose the old-worldly charm of golden traditional kaleeras. While Sonam Kapoor's pretty kaleera set with peacock details were from Mrinalini Chandra, Deepika donned a golden traditional set from RaAbta by Rahul.
The most talked-about brides of 2018 walked the aisle under the simplest Phoolon ki Chaadars. They made stunning bridal entry under red dupattas. Quite a statement, right?
Mehendi ceremonies have become synonymous to the vibrant and zesty decor. But Deepika Padukone and Sonam Kapoor's subtle pastel-themed mehendi ceremonies set some new rules.
Dainty, minimal and thoughtful are the words that best describe the mangalsutra designs of our stunning celebrity bride-ys. Priyanka' mangalsutra was a Sabyasachi creation whereas Sonam's customized mangalsutra featured her and Anand's zodiac signs along with a solitaire.
Celebrate the cultures of the bride as well as of the groom by having a cross-cultured wedding with 2 ceremonies just like #DeepVeer and #NickYanka. Deepika hails from Karnataka whereas Ranveer is a Sindhi, so the duo celebrated their union by having Konkan style ceremony followed by an Anand Karaj. Similarly, Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas solemnized their love in a Christian-style ceremony and a Hindu wedding.
Want great wedding photographs? Have a day wedding! That's what we have learned from Sonam, Deepika, Neha, and even Anushka Sharma's weddings.
More and more couples are breaking the norms and having intimate weddings. It is always better to surround yourself with the people who matter the most on your special day than gathering a crowd who is only there for the food. Hold a reception for all the acquaintances and keep the wedding a love-filled intimate affair.
