Of Wedding Festivities
For her mehendi ceremony, Alia wore a custom lehenga by Manish Malhotra. Per the designer, the lehenga was made using textile patches from leftover materials and enhanced by embroidery from the women working at Mijwan Welfare Society. For her party, the new bride wore a sequin mini from Oscar De La Renta.
Again, our congratulations to Ms. Bhatt.

The patchwork skirt is beautiful..
Yes! So pretty! I like the blouse design too.
Like the jewellery too! The pop of green.
Love the entire look.
I read somewhere that the materials are from her own clothes worn during important moments in her life! Thats super cool..but wondering how they found extra materials from those dresses!
She looks lovely.
More than that, I love that the wedding was so personal – outfits were not cookie cutter, venue was their house, guests restricted to close family and friends, and their outfits all appropriate for guests. The whole wedding was just so personal and warm and real.
You either have to be ultra rich or ultra poor to pull off something like this. Ambanis and Bachchans had home weddings too. The people in the middle are stuck trying to keep up or upstage the joneses:)
Agree…either you need to have great wealth or supreme comfort in your skin to be able to pull this off..kudos to Alia Ranbir.
It’s true! Need big homes for home wedding.. Atleast in Bombay
The wedding was real? LOL. This is Bollywood…it’s as unreal as it gets. It’s all about who grabs the most eyeballs and every little detail has to blown up as if it’s some great trend. It’s a patchwork lehenga. Nothing new. Let’s move on.
Must be really hard to be a constant hater. No?
Paddy, why so much angst ? Not good for your soul and body
Rish/Pssst: this is Bollywood, they don’t care two hoots about you and me unless we can bring them fame and fortune. So let’s not take them seriously. Life is bigger, better and beautiful. Peace.
Why do the viewers or the audience always feel that they have built a sportsperson or an actor? It’s a two-way street .. we appreciate them because they do their job well. Their work makes me happy. My money/appreciation, directly and indirectly, makes them happy.
She looks cute in the silver dress. Wish better pics were around
She is looking so cute in her mehndi. Cant believe that lehnga is from manish but whenever he worked with mijwan women the creation is fantastic.
I love that Alia stayed true to herself for the wedding outfits and intimate festivities. In this day and age when celebrities run such a tight ship with only releasing professional pictures (even having the guests sign the privacy clause), Alia and Ranbir’s friends and family were able to post pictures/videos they took with the bride and groom. I think we all yearn for that level of trust in our attendees and confidence in ourselves, to not feel threatened by unfiltered pictures being released regardless of the public reaction (and clearly plenty Joan Rivers’ protégés had a lot to say about what she chose to wear). Congratulations to the happy couple!
Oh ! how I miss Joan Rivers!
I think Kapoor family as such is very open about their lives and keep sharing such details.
I find these comments about people having something to say about what a filmstar wore on a fashion blog so strange. People have opinions about clothes here and “looks” and a celebrity wedding is fair game isn’t it?
Why do keyboard warriors take great pride in showcasing moral superiority in putting down people who said they didn’t like what she wore? Of course people have a lot to say about everything fashion related. Otherwise every comment here will be either “She looks fabulous”, “Her life her choice”, “The pics scream joy and whatever tatters XYZ is wearing doesn’t matter”. Why even bother to have comments then?
The problem is the blog itself. HHC started off as a fun platform…I started following then back in 2008/2009. The USP was the commentary of the bloggers and the commentators. It used to be super fun. Now, HHC has become a celebrity spotting site with almost zero commentary on fashion and trends. And are out to only please and appease Bollywood A List.
and select celebs express their annoyance with nasty comments, if they dont like an opinion on their outfit!
Agree – the fun has gone out of this website. Its all very PC/woke and political – even with which “stars” are favoured/or even covered.
Finally! MM has put his creativity into good use and how! Totally hearting the lehenga, jewelry, and styling. She was a very pretty bride. Excited to see how she’d dress for the reception. That mini is quite stunning too.
This wedding has her character written all over it. From the color of the wedding attire, to the barely there makeup to the close wedding to the butterflies, birds, number 8, infinity symbol, and meeting date integrated into the wedding look to the upcycled lehenga, she has set a new benchmark for the Indian brides. She just showed us that not everything needs to be OTT for the bride to shine. Really loved this wedding and the concept.
Indian weddings are about OTT,. Everyone does it as per their capacity though.
Alia should have chosen to look like a bride n not just another day of life types. While the dress is cute, she surely doesn’t look like newly married. N before I get attacked with comments like “her life, her choice” , we are here to critique fashion choices, so just put my opinion. Peace
You’re here to critique fashion choices, not personal choices someone makes about how they want to look on a very important day of their lives. So stick to the fashion aspect. “More OTT” isn’t a fashion choice. “Weddings are about X” isn’t a fashion critique. It’s a norm about what YOU think a wedding should be. And evidently you don’t quite understand how heterogeneous India is when you say “Indian wedding.” So yes, put your opinion out there – but a bad opinion < a good, informed, thoughtful one. Just saying.
I am talking about kind of wedding Kapoors are having. When I say she should have chosen to look like a bride, it is pointed to her clothes n jewelry n makeup. Not sure what else did YOU assume under that n got so super defensive about Alia.
Beautiful lehengas, the blouse is not too flattering though
Agree! The scalloped bottom part could have been better.
the lehnga stands out in a subtle manner.. Just the right amount of oomph for a home wedding. Reception outfit is underwhelming… but a youthful look !
That’s the thing! They didn’t had any reception. Just a dance party!
Love the concept of the lehenga. She looks so pretty, but I am missing a dupatta here.
I think she looked very beautiful. The clothes we’re really her style, not over the top. I would not compare this home wedding to the one thrown by the Ambanis.
Love the lehenga and the entire look, hairstyling, soft make up, it’s just right. Want to see a color pic of the silver dress, looks fun.
