8 Celebrity Bride Looks of 2018 That You Can Glam On A Budget

Admit it. We’ve all seen the magical photos of all the celebrity brides at their weddings and envied all the clothes they get to wear on a daily basis. High-end designers worked hard to give out results that we see in an endless stream on social media, especially Instagram. 

Amongst all this, there are a few of us who dream of wearing these garments for their nuptials or generally (who doesn’t like dressing up?) sans the cost of everything we own!

Don’t get me wrong. There are people who couldn’t be bothered less by these garments but there are options available for people who really want the celebrity look without burning a hole in their wallets.

Read on, or rather look on (because there will be a lot of pictures involved) how you can achieve these looks on a budget!

DISCLAIMER- The outfits mentioned here are not the exact same as the ones the brides are wearing. It is a suggestion we are making to achieve the exact same look by renting out the designer wear we offer.

Also, we have stylists who are all ears to customize your dream lehenga/saree for you!


Although they were married in 2017, the couple celebrated their first wedding anniversary recently on Instagram. Here’s a look just in case you had forgotten

Anushka is wearing a pale pink lehenga which was actually considered a fresh change from the classic red lehengas Indian brides opt for! Made with vintage English colors and Renessaince embroidery, this lehenga was certainly game-changing. 

Our suggestion

For a person who wants to make bold choices for their wedding attire, this Smriti Apparels lehenga is a perfect match for Anushka’s wedding look which will make all jaws drop wherever you go. Sequined flowers unfurl themselves on the netted blouse and spill onto the pre-draped dupatta.

Smriti Apparels
is a brainchild of Anju Agarwal and Anushree Agarwal which makes intricately crafted designer wear for both men and women.  They focus on tailoring the ideal wedding attire for the Indian bride. 

We collaborated with blogger Mandeep Kaur who graced this lehenga and made it all better!

For the reception, Anushka chose a red benarsi saree which is a go-to attire for a Bengali bride. When Anushka chose this saree it was seen as a revival of Indian handloom. The red bindi, mogras, and sindoor complete the look.

Our suggestion

Although the sarees are completely different when it comes to their origin, the Kanchivaram Silk Brocade Saree by Regional Exotica is a beautiful match to the saree Anushka has worn. The pallav has red dots inside diamond shaped structures covering it. The field has Paisley designs prepared in a Gulmohar tree design repeating throughout it.

Is it just me or did everyone sit tight awaiting the pictures from the most anticipated wedding of the year? Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh had a grand wedding at Lake Como in Italy this year and it is a feast to our eyes. For her mehendi, Deepika chose a rose-colored saree which brought out the glow in her face. Deepika once described her wedding as ‘magical’ in an interview. After looking at all the pictures, we don’t doubt!

Again we are crossroads when it comes to the origin of the saree but this Regional Exotica Patola saree is a true match for a regal bride. This one has enigmatic semi-floral motifs repeating throughout its field.

The red bridal lehenga by Satya Paul is definitely a good match for Priyanka’s wedding lehenga. The net dupatta is adorned with sequins and thread-work in its border. Its blouse has an embellished neckline that runs till the bust adorned with sequins and embroidered applique.

Established in 1985, Satya Paul is India’s premier design label with an international presence. The brand is acclaimed for ingenuity in design and a vivid color palette. Women no longer restrict themselves to hereditary Banarasis and Chanderis; and Satya Paul has been instrumental in bringing about this change with the new-age Saree, which is easy to wear and chic.

I did say that Anushka Sharma’s choice was a fresh change to the Indian bridal wear, but Saina Nehwal has a good backhand. She chose this stunning indigo velvet embroidered lehenga with pink dupatta for her nuptials and she breathes life into it.
