For the last week, Bollywood’s ‘It’ pair has been driving the media into a frenzy as the news of their approaching weddings has generated a buzz across B-Town. While the couple and their family members have been tight-lipped about disclosing any facts, a few have made their way to us!
Initially, it was expected that the young couple would marry at the renowned Kapoor family house in Chembur, Mumbai, which has been in the Kapoor family for decades. This vast mansion, loaded with precious antiquities and presently maintained by 15 personnel, was meticulously kept by Krishna Raj Kapoor and is also where Ranbir’s elder cousin sister, Bollywood actress Karishma Kapoor, married. However, it is now being reported that the private wedding would take place in Ranbir’s own flat in the Vastu building in Mumbai’s upscale Pali Hill district. According to reports, the actor’s Vastu flat is also conveniently adjacent to his mother’s house!
Celebrity wedding planners Shaadi Squad, who have worked on the nuptials of Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma, Katrina Kaif and Vicky Kaushal, and Varun Dhawan and Natasha Dalal, among many others, were supposed to design the much-anticipated bash. According to insiders, the couple may not be working with an Event Management Company. Instead, all of the festivities are scheduled to be created and conceptualised by Alia and her mother’s close friend who specialises in custom gifts and home décor. The majority of the other details are expected to be handled by vendors and artists who have previously worked with Neetu Kapoor and the Kapoor family, such as a popular Bandra eatery known for its street foods, a celebrated choreographer who previously worked with Kareena and Karishma Kapoor for their weddings, and B-favorite Town’s designer Manish Malhotra.
Amid widespread speculation that the wedding will be held at RK Studio, the best of Mumbai’s premium hotels are believed to be wooing the couple for the honour of hosting their Reception, including the Grand Hyatt Kalina, JW Marriott Mumbai Juhu, and one of the Taj hotels. Kareena Kapoor’s wedding to Saif Ali Khan at The Taj Mahal Palace in Mumbai was the most recent big event in the Kapoor family. Armaan Jain’s wedding in 2020, as the first cousin of Ranbir, Kareena, and Karishma, made headlines once more, with festivities taking place at the Grand Hyatt Mumbai and The St. Regis Mumbai.
- Alia and Ranbir ditched the bright colours in favour of elegant ivory and gold ensembles. Both of their wedding gowns were designed by Sabyasachi, who colour matched the pair to make them seem like royalty. Alia chose a magnificent white colour with beautiful gold embroidery all over her hand-dyed organza saree. While Ranbir was dressed in a Sabyasachi embroidered silk sherwani adorned with trademark uncut diamonds. He completed the look with a classic white organza safa and a zari-marori embroidered shawl.
- The pair chose Sabyasachi Heritage Jewellery 2022 for a majestic appearance that added glitter and grandeur to their attire. Alia chose diamond, pearl, and polki jewellery, including a statement sheeshpatti, choker, jhumkas, and stacked kada bangles. Ranbir finished off his appearance with uncut diamonds from Sabyasachi’s Heritage Jewellery line. He chose kalgi with uncut diamonds, emeralds, and pearls that he combined with a multi-strand pearl necklace.
- We’re not sure we’ll ever get over Alia’s decision to wear no makeup and her hair in a ‘open hair’ style for her wedding. She paved the way for all future brides who prefer to keep things simple. Alia’s freckles and grin lines could even be seen through her ‘no-makeup’ cosmetic look. Also, instead of a bridal hair bun, try one of these lovely open hairstyles!
