DeepVeer’s wedding took the internet by the storm as the couple took their wedding vows on 14th and 15th November 2018. DeepVeer wedding celebrations were larger than life and we are still not over it. The couple hosted a reception in Bangalore followed by three receptions in Mumbai. And, while their wedding celebration has finally come to its end, they have left behind some steal-worthy wedding trends. Because who said you have to be a celebrity like DeepVeer to have a wedding like this!
So, what are you waiting for? Here are some wonderful wedding trends that we think every couple should steal from DeepVeer’s wedding:
1. Get Married Twice!
This is the biggest wedding trend of the year 2018! Deepika Padukone is a South Indian while Ranveer Singh is a Sindhi. So, instead of getting married just once, the couple decided to get married twice and honour their respective cultures. They had a traditional Konkani wedding on 14th November, which was followed by an Anand Karaj on 15th November. So, if you and your partner belong to different cultures, then you can have two weddings just like DeepVeer’s wedding too!
2. Personalize Your Wedding Attire
We have seen a lot of brides flaunting their personalized latkans on their bridal lehenga and we love them. What Deepika did was very unexpected. While most of the brides think about incorporating their couple’s initials on their wedding attire, Deepika personalized hers by getting a beautiful blessing (Sada Saubhagyavati Bhava) stitched on her dupatta. This is one trend that will soon take over the world of bridal attire.

3. Kadas Over Bangles!
Did you notice Deepika flaunting that stack of kadas on her Konkan Wedding? Bangles are every bride’s essential part of jewellery. However, the fearless Deepika ditched away bridal bangles and instead, completed her overall bridal look with just kadas!
4. Bridal Smokey Eye Make-up
We haven’t seen many brides opting for smokey eyes on their wedding day. However, Deepika Padukone looked super gorgeous in those smokey eyes on both her weddings- Konkan and Sindhi. And, not to forget her Bollywood reception night look. Deepika has surely set a new trend of smokey eyes for both traditional and western outfits effortlessly!
5. Go All Out On Your Pre-Wedding Functions
As a rule of thumb, couples keep their pre-wedding attires simple, including the celebrity couples. However, DeepVeer’s wedding showed us that if you want to wear bridal jewellery or a heavy jacket on your Mehendi then you should not shy away from that.
6. Groom In All Red!
Indian brides love to dress up in red but we rarely see grooms in all-red attires. Red is a strong colour which is difficult to carry. This is one reason why grooms stay away from it. By wearing a red wedding attire, Ranveer has established that this would be the ‘it’ colour for grooms now.
7. Girls Holding The Phoolon ki Chaadar
We have seen so many brides walking down the aisle under a beautiful phoolon ki chadar. Traditionally, it is the brothers of the bride who hold the chadar above her head. They stand around her as her protectors. Deepika came to the venue under a phoolon ki chadar which was held over her by her bridesmaids. Also, did you notice that her Phoolon ki chadar wasn’t too over the top? It was just a matching piece of cloth/dupatta with that of Deepika’s outfit. This is the newest trend from DeepVeer’s wedding that we would love to witness more!
8. Everything Colour-Coordinated
DeepVeer’s Wedding was the most colour-coordinated wedding we have ever seen so far. Starting from their airport look when they were leaving for Italy to their first public appearance as a married couple, the two lovebirds wore the same colours on every occasion. You can too opt for colour coordinated wedding outfits to set #couplegoals! Even, DeepVeer’s families opted for colour coordinated theme. At DeepVeer’s Mumbai reception, Deepika’s family opted for white coloured outfits whereas Ranveer Singh’s family wore black coloured outfits.

9. Daytime Wedding Ceremonies For Perfect Pictures
When DeepVeer’s wedding pictures made their debut on the couple’s Instagram handles, the world skipped a beat. Their gorgeous attire and smiles dipped in love made us go weak on our knees. But, did you notice it was the shining sun who gave the couple picture perfect photographs? DeepVeer’s sun-kissed photographs truly prove that a day wedding is the newest trend of 2018!
10. Old-School Wedding Favors
These days, couples spend months to find that perfect and unique wedding favor but Deepika and Ranveer did just the opposite. They brought back the tradition of giving that ‘methai ka dabba’ and treated their guests with a box of Mysore Pak sweets. This is not only a sweet gesture but cost-efficient too!
11. Maintaining Traditional Authenticity
The most beautiful thing we witnessed at DeepVeer’s wedding was the authenticity of everything. From their attires to the menu, everything had authentic feels. They even served food on banana leaves after their Konkani wedding. Authenticity is one thing that is slowly slipping away from Indian weddings but Deepika and Ranveer have proved that it is the most important thing in everyone’s life.
12. #MakeUpTrends 2019!
The newest wedding trend in 2018 is a bride with a simple hairstyle and minimalistic makeup. Throughout DeepVeer’s wedding, we saw Deepika wearing a simple neat bun with nude makeup (except her smokey eyes) and we are absolutely loving her wedding looks!
13. Special Wedding Menu
While everyone cannot afford the venue that Deepika and Ranveer chose for their wedding, altering the menu is still in our hands. DeepVeer’s wedding food menu was customized according to the preference of the bride and the groom. The guests were served authentic cuisines from their respective states. Customize your wedding menu and serve something different to your guests.
14. Sneakers Over Heels!
Yes, it’s true that nothing comfort beats style! However, brides tend to wear high heels to carry those long lehengas effortlessly. With DeepVeer’s wedding comes the trend of brides rocking their bridal looks with a pair of sneakers!
15. Traditional Yet Stylish Mehendi Outfits for Grooms
Ranveer Singh is well-known for his fearless dressing style. And, we witnessed the same on DeepVeer’s mehendi ceremony. We loved how Ranveer Singh opted for playful Angrakha Kurta with a traditional Nehru jacket. Now, we are sure to witness some more grooms experimenting with their mehendi outfits just like Ranveer Singh!
16. Meaningful Groom Mehendi Designs
Most grooms opt for super simple mehendi designs, and we loved how Ranveer didn’t just go with the usual trend. Instead, he got Deepika’s illustration on his palm together with #DeepVeer!
Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh make a picture-perfect couple. They have been setting couple goals since their first movie together and now, they have raised the bar high by giving us the ultimate #weddinggoals. There are so many ideas that you can steal from DeepVeer’s wedding but the ones that we suggested should be on the top of your list.
