Wedding season is in full swing and all we can see are marriage pictures on our social media feeds! And how can Bollywood stay back when the celebrations begin? From Virushka to the most recent, Vickat… Bollywood has turned many actresses into Punjabi brides. Here are some names whose weddings created a buzz and were among the highlights of the year!
The Vicky Kaushal and Katrina Kaif wedding has been in the headlines for the month! The couple had a Punjabi-style wedding which was visible in the small acts like return gifts that were ‘bhaajji' boxes, Sunny Kaushal calling Katrina ‘Parjhai Ji’ and of course Katrina’s Lehenga.

Kaif looked the perfect Punjabi bride in the Sabyasachi designed, red bridal lehenga which according to the designer had a special veil that was “custom-trimmed with handmade kiran in hand-beaten silver electroplated in gold” so as to pay homage to the groom’s cultural roots!
Bollywood’s most loved couple, aka Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone tied the knot in 2018 at a private ceremony in Italy. And I’m sure it is apt to say that no one could get over how beautiful Deepika looked in the red and gold lehenga. The couple did two weddings— one an Anand Karaj and the other was in Konkani style. Also, not many know that the couple actually got engaged four years prior to their wedding! Also Read: Punjabi Singer Armaan Bedil Turns Actor With ‘Allahr Vres’!
When talking about celeb weddings, how can we forget the Virushka wedding! The power couple, Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma became husband and wife in 2017 after two years of courtship period. During their wedding, Anushka carried a simple yet elegant and delicate look in her blush pink-colored lehenga. Even the song that played during the bride’s entry was the melodic ‘Din Shagna Da’ to go with the fantasy theme.
Another wedding this year that surprised many was the Nehu-Rohu kinship. Singer Neha Kakkar turned into a Punjabi bride for Rohanpreet Singh when she wore a classic red bridal lehenga, designed by Falguni Shane Peacock.

The singer’s lehenga featured a half-sleeved blouse and a ball gown-esque skirt. This lehenga was heavily embroidered that Neha accessorized with a layered Kundan statement neckpiece. The singer looked stunning in her get-up!
Talking about Bollywood’s Punjabi couples, we can’t miss Neha Dhupia and Angad Bedi. The couple’s hush-hush wedding in 2018 had left everyone shocked. At her wedding, Neha looked pretty in a pastel pink lehenga during the Anand Karaj ceremony.
The handcrafted lehenga, by designer Anita Dongre, was embroidered with exquisite gota patti, zardozi, resham, dori and sequin work, making the perfect ensemble for a summer wedding. The lehnga had embroideries in shades of matching pink and mint green.
Even though Gul Panag got married before this trend of obsessing over celebrity weddings, Gul Panag deserves a mention in this list as she looked exquisite on her wedding day in 2011. During her wedding, Panag recycled her mother and mother-in-law’s clothes instead of getting any ‘wari or daaj’ made! Also Read: 5 South Asian Film Projects That Have Won $75k Talent Fund
