Shilpa Shetty Wedding

Finally Shilpa Shetty got married to her British Indian beau Raj Kundra. The ubiquity of her wedding talks on television and print has been a bit much, but we still can't miss the bride's and her friends' pictures on her wedding ceremony and reception.

Shilpa Wedding's Grand Reception

Shilpa Shetty and Raj Kundra's grand wedding reception was held at Grand Hyatt, Mumbai and, it goes without saying, was attended by who who's of the business and glam world.

For the reception Shilpa wore a sequineed golden Tarun Tahiliani contemporary lehenga, inspired by a dress, while the British businessman, Raj Kundra wore a black sherwani by the duo Shantanu and Nikhil.

I'd say I was disapponted by the bride, who didn't pay much attention to her groom. His sherwani was rather disappointing and we wish he would have worn something better. As for Shilpa, she certainly looked stunning. But considering it was her wedding, a more traditional lehenga would have been better suited for the reception. There's nothing like a demure bride. She's looking more like ready for an item number, than a bride.

Well it was their 'Big Day', so everything is forgiven.

The Guest List

Shilpa Shetty's wedding reception was a star-studded affair with bigwigs Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan and Hrithik Roshan attending the wedding ceremony to wish the couple a happy life ahead. Let's see who wore what at the occassion.
Shamita Shetty, certainly not the guest but family, wore a blue green Manish Malhotra saree for the reception. Weddings are the perfect occassion to bring our your blingiest saree, but this one does not work at all. The colour and the design both are a turn-off. Shamita, it was your own sister's wedding, you surely could have done better.
Rani Mukherjee was one of the most well-dressed attendees at Shilpa Shetty's wedding. She turned in a lovely pink Manish Malhotra wedding and looked quite a stunner.

Aishwaya Rai Bachchan attended Silpa Shetty's wedding reception with her father-in-law Amitabh Bachchan (why is Abhishek always missing?). She wore a pink Abu Jani-Sandeep Khosla pink anarkali, that she also wore back in 2007 at Bachchan Sandhya in New York.

Rekha attended Shilpa's wedding in her classic kajevaram style. I am already not a big fan of kanjevarams and this look is too blingy and passe for me. The drape does not look too good, too much jewelry with the already bright saree and the blouse looks bit ill-fitted. Rekha sure looks lovely despite everything though.
Among the other high profile guest, the always flamboyant Vijay Mallya made a grand entrance at Shilpa's wedding reception at Hyatt in a black suit and smart smart shoes. Smart and Sophisticated, nothing too overdone.


  1. I totally agree, fine u r from the glam world but wedding is a wedding man............. Wearing such outrageous clothes for a bride is certainly not appreciable !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
