  1. What an absolutely gorgeous couple!

    Alia has just hit it out of the park with that white & gold saree. So, SO elegant and classy.

    I’m much younger than Ranbir but I’m like that eldest aunty at a wedding going “haaye, nazar utaaro” looking at these pics lol

  2. Both look good but I have to make an extra comment. For a Punjabi wedding, I am surprised by the absence of the beautiful red color (dupatta, chooda, etc.) but that’s just a personal thing. And what is also missing is a genuine smile from the groom…he is looking like he has swallowed a lemon.

    • Alia is part Christian. And I am a Punjabi. I married a Bengali. I didn’t do a chooda. And I didn’t wear red. Please don’t impose your view of the world on everyone.

      • Just like a white gown is synonymous with a Christian wedding and if a Christian bride suddenly wore red, people will be surprised..doesn’t mean that they are imposing their views on the bride. When u are a public figure and put your photos out, then u have given people the liberty to comment on those photos

      • She’s not imposing her view on everyone…she stated clearly, “but that’s just a personal thing.” She’s simply stating her preference.

        • Alia’s maternal grandfather was a Kashmiri Pandit, maternal grandmother is a Christian (A Brit)
          Paternal grandmother was a (Gujarati?) Muslim and Paternal grandfather a Gujju.

    • Totally agree.. don’t get the fascination with taking color out of Indian weddings. Punjabi wedding is incomplete without chooda and red dupatta

      • Why is it even called a Punjabi wedding when the bride clearly isn’t one? Does only the groom’s culture matter.
        Then again no one is talking about how the groom is not conforming to Gujarati or Christian wedding standards(since Alia is a mix of all these).
        What is this unfair burden on brides.

        • Yes!
          Also, it’s a wedding between two individuals. They get to decide the rules & how much room they want to give to these traditional concepts and ideas. It’s not all about conformity. Gosh.

    • Umm…Alia is not Punjabi? And she’s the bride.

      I loved that they stayed away from the boilerplate Sabya red and went for this beautiful muted combination.

      (P.S: I’m a non-Punjabi married to a Punjabi and I got similar comments at my wedding – where’s your red chooda?! etc. from MY OWN extended family. So this is a bit of sore topic for me. No offence intended. Peace! :))

      • Shifa ji, iss wale photos mein bhi dikh raha hai. Don’t know what this whole outrage is about? She is wearing maroon bangles, maroon bindi, she is wearing sindoor, kaleera.
        Inko problem saree ke colour se hai. Besides, it’s not even white, it’s ivory. And a lot of southern brides wear ivory for their wedding.
        Weird, they don’t even let brides express themselves. Had she worn a red outfit, the comment section would be again outraging about it.

    • Swallowed a lemon, seriously? And how would you possibly know if a stranger’s smile is genuine or not? Some people are just out to criticize, unbelievable.

  3. Alia is a beautiful girl but why dress in such somber colors at your once in a lifetime event..especially when Indian weddings are all about color.

    • All Indian weddings are not about colour.
      In our circles in Kerala, we wear the white/ ivory Kerala saree and Christian brides wear white saree. These above mentioned are also Indian weddings.

      Before jumping at me saying that the above comment was only a general observation, it would be prudent to understand that India’s diversity does not warrant a generalisation at least when it comes to matters of dressing, more so when it comes to wedding dresses since it involves a level of personal choice as well.

    • Yes Indian weddings are about colour but it’s a daytime summer/spring wedding. Had she gotten married in the winters in a colder place the colour palette might have been different. Forget Alia, even regular brides wear pastels for their wedding now, and have been doing so for a while. Imo brighter colours might look too jarring for a daytime wedding. No offence to anyone, just my two cents.

  4. The whole look is so beautiful!
    We’ve seen Alia in so much white lately, that I expected a red lehanga here. But this is surprisingly well done! Very happy for the both of them!

  5. I was expecting comments around the colour or lack of it. It’s her wedding and her choice. I honestly love the simplicity. All wedding looks don’t have to be ott

  6. I squealed with joy when I saw these joyful pix! Alia looks stunning. I am sure she had a say in the color and style of her wedding outfit and these reflect her personal style. I found both their looks really elegant. If they had done the usual Sabya red lehenga with a quote on the veil, everyone would be talking about how cookie cutter their look is. This will be remembered for years to come, just like Anushka-Virat’s were. I am sure she wore colorful looks for her other ceremonies and it’s important to remember that Red is not worn in all South Asian communities as wedding attire. I especially love the fact that she went with a saree and not a lehenga for her outfit. It’s also something that she can pass down/wear again much easily than a heavy lehenga..although that may not be a major issue for celebs when deciding their outfits, unlike the rest of us.

    • Kohli wedding and this was apples and oranges. Not sure why you make the comparison between a simple wedding done at home and an OTT garish one in a foreign location, Kohli wedding is more in line with the Padukone wedding. Aalia’s nuptials remind me more of Yami’s which was elegant and exquisite in its simplicity.

  7. We’re usually polite in the comments section of wedding posts but this has to be one of my genuinely favorite wedding looks. They look dreamy and gorgeous. Understated even, despite all the million dollar gems.

  8. Love that they did white . However I wish she did add some color via her jewelry, flowers in her hair with a bun , a red bindi etc I feel would have elevated the look . Her make up is very muted , perhaps a red lip would have made the saree pop . But they look nice & kinda love the unconventional look

  9. Her Insta pics made the saree look like a cream coloured one. it looked so dreamy and classy…The stark white in other pap pics seems underwhelming, but it’s her day. So best wishes to them. Loved her mehendi and minimal makeup.

    • It’s an ivory cream shade. So depending on the light situation and the background contrast, the colour will look different for different settings.

  10. Both of them just hit it out of the park with these outfits. The clothes, jewelry, styling, deco, photography – everything oozes class and elegance. It is also a great twist that she chose to wear a saree and styled her hair in loose curls. They both look lovely, happy, radiant and BRILLIANT.

    This has to be favorite wedding look after Soha Ali Khan’s. Excitedly waiting to see her other ceremonial pictures. I’m hoping MM did her justice. Also waiting for the grand reception look.

  11. Awful. They look like they ran off the sets of Ekta Kapoor’s Mahabharat after play acting as Kunti and Bheeshma Pitamah. Actually he looks like Jadugar Sircar. Anyways good luck to them.

  12. They look amazing. So happy she stuck to her aesthetic. She did include the kaleera and a few red bangles but like someone pointed out she isn’t Punjabi so she doesn’t have to look like a Punjabi bride.

  13. How gorgeous they look! Absolutely love her attire, what is keeping it fresh and refreshing is her fresh face and no makeup! She doesn’t appear to be wearing a lipstick as well! I’m just still in awe of her bare natural look. casual hair and natural face on her wedding day, could you be more truer than that 🙂

    • But why be makeupless, casual and have a natural face on your wedding day? I know its personal and its her choice and everything but she is a public figure so I can ask/comment. But in a way Bollywood is convoluted right – they prolly slather makeup and wear heavy/blingy clothes everyday so they might find it nice to be fuss freeon their wedding but for common folks like us who live in sweats and jeans, weddings are a chance to go all out.

      • She looks great without make-up so why should she cake-up?

        It doesn’t take much for girls like Alia, Masaba, Kareena, Konkona, and Radhika Apte to look great. It probably has something to do with their features. They need to get just one or two things right – some sort of eye-make-up and nice lip colour 🙂

        • And pray tell us, what does your statement even mean? These women don’t need much to look great but common people do? Maybe we arent seeing non-make up pics of these gals at all!
          My point was, wedding is a weird choice to go makeup free? Not questioning if they look great or not.

          • There are girls (and boys) who are not working in movies, but manage to shine with little makeup.
            Alia is wearing all the make-up she needs.

  15. Love the saree, cream and gold is one of my fav color combos. The blouse is exsquisite. Best wishes to them. Is it net or Chanderi? Anyone knows?

    Now here is where I get controversial and this is my personal preference ofc – Hate her hair. It looks bad…kinda incompletely made? I like the maang teeka + hairband but her hair is not gelling with the rest. Why didn’t Ranbir Kapoor shave? His scruffy look is not a beard and looks really unkempt.

    Little bit underwhelmed with the pictures given this wedding was so hyped up. Love the overall aesthetic and the pictures esp. the garlands.

    • I think we have got so used to curated wedding pics in exotic locations that two big stars relatively simply dressed getting married at home comes as underwhelming. I cannot put my finger on it but there seems to be a very let’s get done with it vibe to the pics.

      • Perhaps they did want a quiet wedding? They are constantly in the limelight. Perhaps they wanted this to be their own day, and for once they may not have felt the need to cater to anyone else’s aesthetic but their own. Also Ranbir’s dad and uncle passed away not too long ago which may have also mattered.

        • Apparently, Alia’s grandmother is hospitalised. So that’s another factor.
          Moreover, I like the idea of just close family and friends being there for pheras and mehendi.

  16. Can someone pls id her heels. They look comfy and give a good couple of inches. Perfect for short girls like me who wanna look taller but still be comfortable

  17. I read that this wedding was put together in a great hurry (10 day) which May have limited their choice of clothes. They must have had to pick what was available at sabyasachi and had it altered. They looks beautiful nevertheless. What I find interesting is that most of the guests including Neetu did not even get their hair done.

  18. Bless the bride and groom with lots of love.

    A picture speaks a thousand words, and from the comments I gather the following :

    1. Neetu ji apparently did not do make up.
    2. RK and his family seem not invested enough in the wedding, ref to bullet 1 .
    3. If you are Punjabi, if you don’t wear chhooda then bahut badi galti ho gayi.
    4. That the bride, groom and their extended family just wanted to get this done. They had ten days and made do with whatever was available with the designers.
    5. Ranbir Kapoor should have shaved. How unkempt.
    6. Makeupless and casual is a bad thing on a wedding.

    This is sarcastic post because it just amazes me how the photos screamed joy to me.

    • Yup..thats what the comments section on a fashion blog are for! You hit the nail on the head Bullet Rani. Not one of points no. 1-6 you made here meant there wasn’t any joy or happiness. They are two separate things.
