TGIF: Wedding Outfits!!!! Pick Your Favorites

Yaaaay!  A super fun one inspired by Sonam’s Party of the Century wedding earlier this week.  Wedding dresses!  Combining both the full formal wedding sari, and the fun reception outfits, so we get two sets of dresses to gaze at.

Preity Zinta

Formal dress is fine, and I like that her White Dude committed to wearing a matching outfit instead of trying to get by with just a suit.  Also, super cool that there are little pictures in the embroidery, I love it when embroidery tells a story.

But the reception gown I LOVE.  It’s going to be the one to beat so far as I am concerned.  Bridal red, flowing and gorgeous, makes her stand out immediately without looking like it is trying.

Kareena Kapoor

Kareena’s formal wedding sari was an antique from Saif’s family.  The light green trim around the bottom is very distinctive.

But then Kareena got to be a little more fun for her reception, pink on pink on pink.

Genelia D’Souza

Genelia D’Souza was a fun one, because it was cross-religious, so 3 dresses!  Two religious ceremony ones, and one party one.  Here’s the Christian wedding dress, reception sari.

And formal wedding sari

Anushka Sharma

Then there’s Anushka’s wedding of course.  Pink instead of red, maybe being out of the country made them feel free to be untraditional.  And I love the petticoats under the skirt and the nice round shape to it.

Her Bombay reception outfit which I think is TERRIBLE.

But then the Delhi outfit is maybe too formal?  Or too mature?  Too something.

Samantha Ruth Prabhu

Going down south for another cross-religious wedding with Samantha Ruth Prabhu.  And oooo, I really like this dress!  I think better than Genelia’s.

Her engagement sari kind of matched, white with gold.  But I think I like the dress better.

Another antique family sari for the ceremony.  It’s fine, but you don’t get a full length pic because I am IN LOVE with this photo.

And then her reception outfit, which I think is my least favorite.  I would have voted for just wearing the engagement sari again.

Nazriya Nizam

While we’re down south, check out Nazriya Nizam at her wedding!  Oh my gosh, she looks like a little doll.

But happy!  Interesting that the half-sari was the reception outfit.

The actual ceremony, so far as I can tell, was in this outfit.  Which looks like a separate skirt and top, but the top matches the top of the skirt?  Which confuses my eye.  But I still like it!  Especially the nice floaty skirt.

Shilpa Shetty

Starting at the bottom, gotta say that her reception outfit really really doesn’t work for me!  Or for her, based on how she is tugging at it.  Although I do like the skirt fabric, I just don’t like what was done to it.

The actual wedding outfit thought, perfectly nice and acceptable and fitted and flattering and all those good things.

Lara Dutta

Interesting mix, full white wedding dress.

And then a registry marriage outfit.  I think I might like the lowkey registry outfits better than the full dress?

Soha Ali Khan

I don’t think she got stuck with an heirloom sari, this looks modern to me.  And maybe with a petticoat like Anushka’s?

And then the reception was almost casual (comparatively)!  And I kind of love it?  The hot pink is so young and fun.

Okay, I could go on and on, but I am exhausted!

Here’s the question, if you were putting together your perfect wedding, what would be your:

White Wedding Dress

Definitely Samantha.  I love the way the little sparkly bits go down onto the skirt.

Formal Ceremony Outfit

Kareena.  I make fun of the antiqueness, but if you are going to go formal, why not go really really formal, you know?

Fun Reception Outfit

Preity is still the winner.  I just love that dress!

Bonus question:

What groom makes the best accessory?

Well, White Dude looks slightly uncomfortable, Saif‘s sword would distract from my outfit, Ritiesh is too dopey looking when he is happy, Virat‘s hair is too adventurous for my taste, Naga Chaitanya is too dopey looking also, Fahad is too short, Shilpa’s husband has messy facial hair, and Kunal Khemu is wearing earrings.  So I guess Lara’s guy!  Surprise come from behind winner!  Congrats Mahesh Bhupathi, and also Lara I guess on an excellent taste in grooms.

  1. You still have wedding fever I see. Well so do I, not complaining. I love both samantha & Genelia’s wedding gown. Love Anushka’s wedding dress, the reception outfits not so much. Samantha’s engagement saree apparently had their love story embroidered on to the border along with their names.

    Nazriya’s reception outfit is quite sweet. Shilpa’s outfit I didn’t remember but is quite odd and clearly uncomfortable.

    • Awwww, that makes me really like Samantha’s engagement sari. She definitely should have reused it for the reception!

      I don’t understand Shilpa’s reception outfit at all, and I bet she regrets it bitterly now.

      • I had to wear a sari at an Indian wedding, which was NOT fun. Because it wasn’t air conditioned, and with the silk and all the wrapping, it was a very hot experience. But the first few minutes, just looking at myself in the mirror, it was really cool.

    • Kareena’s really makes you understand what people mean when they say “rich silk” doesn’t it? Just beautiful fabric, so beautiful that you really don’t need anything else (fit, fancy style) to make beautiful.

  2. A number of things that you’re calling sarees here are really lehengas. And a number of them would be called “tacky” in India, but again, that’s context-dependent so in the US they’d all be considered “beautiful Indian outfits”.

      Although I think even in America Shilpa’s thing would be considered “tacky”.

          • Also that’s a reception lehenga on Genelia, not saree.

            Anushka’s reception outfit is far from “formal”. Nobody wears such sarees to formal events in India. Formal sarees are nowhere near as embellished. For reference, you could look at Sonia Gandhi’s sarees or Naila Lal Kidwai’s sarees. If anything, it’s a simpler, more old-school outfit than Bollywood tends to prefer. My mom wore a similar Banarasi saree for her wedding.

            Both of Nazriya Nizam’s outfits are lehengas.

            Anushka and Soha both wore Sabyasachi lehengas. Fro her reception, Soha wore Masaba most of whose clothes tend to have cool fun prints.

          • Shilpa wore a custom Tarun Tahiliani outfit which as you said was a cross between a saree and a lehenga. It should be pretty easy to google what a Kanjeevaram looks like. Just because someone is South Indian, it doesn’t mean whatever they wear to their wedding becomes a kanjeevaram.

I mean, sure, everyone has a right to their opinion on everything but a lot of what I ‘m reading looks like just guesses – when the real deal is pretty easy to find out online.

  3. My favorite wedding outfit is definitely Anushka’s and Kareena’s is a close second (always Sabyasachi for the win!). I also love Anushka’s mehendi look (not shown here) and my favorite reception look would be Sonam’s high fashion look then quick change to the caftan for dancing (also not shown here:)). I also love Lara Dutta’s registry look. I don’t really like any of the white Christian dresses, just nothing special.

    I’m having fun monitoring Cannes starting yesterday! Kangana’s two red carpert looks were pretty fierce. The white lacy thing on Deepika yesterday was really boring, but she was dramatic perfection in the fuschia gown.

    • Are Kangana and Dips promoting anything particular at Cannes, or just there to be there do you know?

      • Don’t know why Kangana is there…I think she was late to her first red carpet night or the photographers didn’t know who she was because Getty Images didn’t publish any images except for her second turn in the sparkly cat suit (very Krrrish 3).

        Deepika, Aishwarya, and Sonam are all L’Oreal ambassadors and they each have two red carpet nights and don’t seem to overlap.

  4. My fav wedding outfits are Anushka;s and Soha’s (both Sabya), and Samantha’s a close second. I love that flushed pink, so pretty! Reception probably Nazriya. Most of them were underwhelming compared to the wedding outfits. But I absolutely hated Anushka’s Delhi reception saree. Her neck piece was so huge, it was overpowering her. But her mehendi outfit was lovely as well.

  5. White dress – Samantha
    Wedding sari/lengha – Anushka!! and I like Neha Dupia look at her wedding too
    Reception – none, but Sonam’s Mehendi lengha was gorgeous!

    • Really? Anushka’s? Although to be fair, I mostly dislike it because of how she is wearing it. She seems strangely hunched over. I am sure you would be standing tall and beautiful and it would look wonderful 🙂
