Though Deepika and fashion designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee — the man behind her impressive bridal trousseau — have both been mum on the details of Deepika’s Mumbai reception look, if you track her style, you can get a sense of what she might wear. Deepika’s not afraid to give trends a try, so, when it comes to her reception look, expect a surprise or two: Namely, a Sabyasachi wedding gown.
The Kolkata-born designer is known for his embellishment-heavy bridal lehengas with architectural silhouettes and intricate embroideries. However, in June 2018, Sabyasachi revealed his first-ever international wedding collection, featuring opulent and innovative bridal gowns with stunning long trains, impressive texture plays, weightless volumes, soft colours (think white, champagne, blush, cloudy grey) and decadent fabrics. Unlike the sarees, suits and lehengas the new bride has worn thus far, we expect Deepika to up the glamour and opulence at her reception with one of Sabyasachi’s classic yet modern wedding gown.
We think there will be romance in Deepika’s reception gown — whether it be a lace bodice, a fit-and-flare design highlighting her curves and waistline or a beaded dress train. The over all feel could be very different from the gold Kanjivaram silk saree at her Bengaluru wedding reception. While all these details are fun to speculate, given that the beautiful bride has not worn any western style yet, Sabyasachi could very well have saved it for Deepika- Ranveer’s final wedding extravaganza.
