    i love the colour of shilpa’s wedding outfit. and i love the peacock arm band. it doesn’t look like there were any famous or recognizable guests at the functions.

    So similar to Aishwaya’s style during her wedding but i like shilpas look. Very beautiful. The all over print on the lengha-sari is a bit of a dissapointment from tarun. Shamita looks fab in the car photo! Congrats to the couple!

      agree… very ashwarya-isq in terms of hair and headwear and flowers …
      ash is a manglorian so she did wats traditionally done in those weddings … guess … she made it fashionable! :)
      alas…sad to see shilpa as a follower wen i really thought she was more the leader variety …
      all said and done … dig the peacock arm band :) and the kundan tika in the car photo …

    feel like theres too much happening everywhere. should have toned down the jewelry a bit as shes getting lost in all the bling. i think she has the potential to look a lot more classy rather than donning the whole rakhi sawant avtaar.

    1. Sej at | | Reply

      I agree. This is just overkill in terms of bling. I was expecting more since it’s Shilpa and she is usually one of the very few who almost always has her act together and manages to pull off a classy look with ease.

    2. Anu at | | Reply

      Haha. That was my first thought too, “is this Rakhi Sawant’s wedding??” Too much going on with the jewelry.

    3. crab at | | Reply

      Spot on. Totally Rakhi Sawant-ey. I too wish she’d worn something less blingy or toned down the jewelry. Classy, the look is not.

      1. AA at | | Reply

        Where the dress ends and the jewelry begins, I have no clue! Sheesh, I am so disappointed. I know that Indian wedding wear is supposed to be over the top, but this a serious case of over over way over the top!

          OTT, Blingy and so unexpected from SS!!
          i cant believe i’m sayin this but yeah… she did go down the sawant way :(

    she looks really pretty. the only odd thing is the waist band type thing over sari..she would have looked better w/out it imo

      this is traditional south indian wedding attire – they always have the gold belt on top of the sari and a gold arm band.

    for everyone who has a problem with jewelery, please don’t forget she is south indian and, traditionally, south indian brides are supposed to wear a lot of jewelery if they can afford it.

    both of them look happy and gorgeous. wishing them the best.

  21. Rezia at | | Reply

    She looks SO beautiful! It’s nice that she really pulled out all the stops and donned all that jewellery. It looks more traditional, more celebrative, more gorgeous. She has the personality to carry off all the bling and hardware with grace and elegance, so I’m really glad there is no hint of minimalism here.

  22. sue at | | Reply

    She looks nice. But she should have gone only with a south indian look.
    The Punjabi ‘Kaleeren’ look very incongrous with her saree.

    1. HK at | | Reply

      It could be because her groom is Punjabi.

    2. Indian Girl at | | Reply

      Well said. Its an Indian wedding and its for somebody so popular in Bollywood – it has to be OTT ! To expect simple jewelery and a “classy” saree on a wedding is not right. I love the grandeur ! I love that they went all out with it ! She looks like an Indian Queen with gold everywhere form clothes to jewelery. Its her day and let her be.

  26. Michiko at | | Reply

    her face is so pretty…she’s glowing..each individual piece she is wearing is exquisite…The lehenga is very pretty…the jewelry lovely…But put everything together and we have a walking talking Christmas tree..

    Ha Ha this was to be expected from Shilpa. Crass! Post her engagement where she was overly decked in bling this came off as no surprise. Does this site have any pics from the Infosys supremo Murthy’s daughter’s wedding. Her reception output was simple, elegant and so classy.

    1. belle_desse at | | Reply

      Whoa!!! did you honestly just call a bride crass on her wedding day?
      fashion shouldn’t always be judged by western ideals: this is a traditional south Indian wedding, and being a South Indian myself I know that any less bling would be occasion inappropriate. Infact most of the bridal jewellery she wears is compulsory according to tradition.
      Infosys Murthy’s wedding was more the exception than the norm, I’ve been to enugh South Indian weddings to know that.
      Again, I’m amazed at the obnoxious tone of comments on this site. How exactly do you know that you are classier than her?
      Did you see the grace with which she conducted herself against the racist attacks on tv?

      1. anushka at | | Reply

        belle_desse u rock very well said and stated

      2. koel at | | Reply

        I agree with @belle_dresse on some points about Indian weddings. I just looked at the Infosys kid’s wedding pictures and Nah !!! There is no comparison…

        Also, isn’t Shilpa in glamor business to start with? Would you like to see Infosys kid on movies? Also, Indian weddings are supposed be glamorous and the bride looks like a bride by wearing more bling than others and without making other people wear a uniform (Bride’s maids dresses in western weddings).

        @belle_dresse I am OK with people’s freedom to express themselves though! I think I don’t have to be classier than somebody to express my opinion about them , these are public figures and I am part of the public ;-)

        1. Belle Desse at | | Reply

          @koel: First of all, totally agree on the glamour biz thing!

          And I DO believe in the freedom of expression, I wasn’t forbiding anybody from saying anything, just expressing MY amazement at the insensitivity (in my opinion) that it takes to call a bride crass!!!
          I am constantly stunned at the obnoxious-ity on this site (cue : comments on the latest Priya Chatwal Sachdev post) and I just like pointing out that being nice, or even a little less cruel never hurts!!I visit a lot of fashion international fashion blogs where people are much milder and I am amazed at how vicious and condecscending we Indians are to our own kind!! (ex- the Sonam Kapoor post where a lot of people said that she probably begged Chanel to dress her!)That’s my opinion and people can ignore it!

          Also, while a person can definitely comment on someone who is classier than them , I think that calling somebody crass implies that you think you are less crass. I mean if you thought you had less class than Shilpa you could hardly call her crass without being supremely hypocritical could you?

          @ Saya: Totally agree!!!

          1. koel at |

            Oh ! I get it …. You are right !

            We should stop the “Gali – Galoch” at the celebrities and just stick with criticizing the clothes and stuff in a more civil way ( like P and P remind us to do from time to time. )

      3. Saya at | | Reply

        Yeah, agree totally about the tone of comments. The comments themselves prove how classy those people who are penning them are. :P

    she looks radiant in sangeet. a little OTT in jewelery on wedding day…but still beautiful! lovely kundan

  30. Divya at | | Reply

    She looks great…I like her better in the Sangeet pic – positively glowing there!
    …only if she would have toned down the jewelery a bit. The same type of necklaces from the engagement to the sangeet to the wedding..it’s a tad too much.

  31. Nidhi at | | Reply

    The happiness on her face is wow ! Love the peacock armband and whole ensemble in sangeet picture.

  32. Maze at | | Reply

    That longer necklace was a bit too much, but for some reason I don’t hate the ensemble. She certainly looks happy, so that’s good enough for me!

  33. gauri at | | Reply

    She looks so lovely!! I must google more South Indian bride looks, because from what I can see here, it is amazingly pretty!!!

  34. ash at | | Reply

    An indian bride should be decked out in all her finery – simplicity can be done on other days. Having said that I’m not loving the outfit, it certainly dosn’t look worth that amount of money and theres nothing unusual or special about it. Still Shilpa looks gorgeous.

    1. KK at | | Reply

      EXACTLY!!!!!! I think her wedding outfit is completely over the top especially all the kundan jewelry. I actually do like the golden outfit.

    the thing on the waist is a kamarbandh…hers is by tarun…they go well will sarees and ghaghras…i have the same one!!

  41. Shi at | | Reply

    While a kamar band and baju band is worn by south Indians when they get married. The kundan overload is not south indian, Kundan jewellery is purely a north indian style of jewellery.

    All said and done…she like most indian brides is dressed a bit too much but hey she looks good IMO

    1. Nida at | | Reply

      That’s where you’re wrong, Hyderabad has a huge Kundan market (after, I think, Rajasthan) a lot of the precious stones can be found there so I wouldn’t say ‘purely… north indian…”

      but I agree like all Indian Brides she is OTT, but she looks fab :)

      1. Shi at | | Reply

        The hyderabadi kundan jewels and pearls comes from the mughals and such that came and settled there…its not an art form that is indignous(sp?) to the region. A traditional south indian and specially telugu hindu does not wear such jewelery …at least as far as I know.

        1. sri at | | Reply

          rightly said shi. kundan jewellery is not southindian. its more gold jewellery and precious stone jewellery even today. she shud have gone with southindian jewellery and not gone the same way aishwarya did for some reason.wud have loved a veil over the flower hairdo. and a nice round studded nose piece! love the red mango- motif (which is so southindian) lehenga but wud have loved a real saree which wud have her look like a real southindian lady.raj looks very good in traditional clothes. he looks like a raja here with sword et all!overall they look great in the traditional do!

          1. sri at |

            p.s. wud have loves a real silk southindian saree with borders. the work sarees are getting a bit too much! the traditional sarees are also coming with modern looks like work on a silk saree which costs lakhs of rupees. shilpa said on her blog that she didnt want to look like christmas tree on her wedding but guess she did look like one..lol :)

  42. Usha at | | Reply

    Kundan Overdose! but she looks pretty
    Ok….just curious…what would one do with the sarees and jewellery after the wedding…? Just save it like a souvenier and tone it down and wear it on different occassions?

    1. Purple at | | Reply

      AFAIK, in South Indian culture, your wedding saree is kept for your valai kaapu (Indian baby shower) – you wear it then again. But you are also encouraged to wear it over and over again when you attend other people’s weddings.

      As for the jewellery, normally they become heirloom pieces that you pass on to your children – daughters/daughter-in-laws or after a decade or so you exchange them for something else.

      That’s what my Mom did :)

      In Kerala Christian culture u are buried in ur Shaadi ka joda, if u die a suhagan (I’m not sure abt the suhagan part though)

      1. Poonam at | | Reply

        As far as I know, all over India, regardless of the region, all Hindu women who die sugan are cremated in their full bridal regalia. In fact Hindus mandate new clothes 3 time in life…at birth (on the ceremony when the baby is 13 days old…the 13 days are set aside to focus on the mother & baby only, the family is not even supposed to do any religious or other rituals), at the wedding, & when a person dies, that time he/she are dressed in new clothes. And all the Indian christians or muslims are basically Hindus to begin with who converted at different time, some as far back as 4 generations ago. The maintained certain rituals like the one you mentioned. I have seen some one who also did something like the thali ritual at their church wedding. It is just whatever makes you feel happy & special…isn’t it?

      2. Poonam at | | Reply

        I think you are right about the suhagan part. The Hindus do the same. But coming to the bride…that’s one time it’s ok to be OTT…and i’d rather see jewellery on a bride…the bride needs to look resplendent…a christmas tree is just a tree…for crying out loud…& why is it even referred to at a wedding?

    The sari color is not suiting shilpa and her kundan jewellery. The sari might look good for a reception or a party.
    She should gone for a darker red color with less print on it.

    She looks stunning!!

    Also yes its similar style to ash as they are from the same background in india. But I have to say I actually think shilpa looks more wow, strange as ash is the more pretty woman.

    As for the OTT jewellery etc, please its her wedding, everyone knows its the one time you care more for traditional look and not fashion! This isn’t an english church wedding, its a huge palace like venue with the whole grand decorations etc. Your meant to be the indian queen for the day!! :)

    regarding both these outfits, i think they’ve done an awesome job in incorporating both their cultures (north and south indian). plus i don’t see a problem with all the bling, after all it is a bollywood indian wedding. moms start buying jewellery for the event years before their daughters get married so i don’t think they went out and bought it all on the same day.

    Shilpa might not hav tried to follow Ash..M not sure if u kno dis, Shilpa also belongs to Bunt community in mangalore.. so she had to dress up and wear jewellary dat way.. I guess all maroon wedding outfits luk d same. n moreova Ash wore a golden saree for d wedding.. n shilpa’s is a very different colour. I guess both rocked in their sarees.

  57. anu141 at | | Reply

    I think Shilpa looks absolutely resplendent. She looks every bit as regal & classy as an INDIAN bride should look. As for her choice of jewelry- Tarun’s bridal wear usually has lot of zardosi & kundan jaal work (I wore a similar TT creation at my own wedding 6 years ago) so kundan is the the natural choice for the complementary jewelry; I don’t think it was a decision based on a North or South Indian look… it was simply what works better with the outfit.

    I agree with the comments made by belle_desse & a few others. Why do people today feel the need to acclamatize all our ideals to the western concept of “beauty & class”? Learn to appreciate, understand and be proud of your own roots guys!!
