Poorna Patel, businessman and politician Praful Patel’s daughter, married businessman Namit Soni in a lavish wedding in Mumbai on Saturday, and the guest list was obviously star-studded. The wedding was attended by A-listers of every kind — Mukesh Ambani with daughter Isha Ambani, Mahendra Singh Dhoni with wife Sakshi Dhoni and daughter Ziva, Neha Dhupia and husband Angad Bedi, actors Katrina Kaif, Shilpa Shetty Kundra, Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan, to name a few.
We’ve seen no shortage of extravagant celebrity wedding lehengas and sarees, and the Poorna Patel wedding didn’t fail to provide us with some stunning wedding fashion inspiration. For her big day, the bride wore a custom ivory Manish Malhotra lehenga that took the designer more than three months to create. Covered in dainty pink floral embroidery, silver zardosi appliques and featuring a phiroze blue embroidered border, the show-stopping lehenga was monogrammed with Poorna and Namit’s names and hand-embroidered with beautiful shlokas. Beatiful indeed.
While weddings are definitely about supporting the happy couple, wanting to look as amazing as possible is far from a crime. And with back-to-back ceremonies — mehendi, sangeet, pheras and reception — showing up with your best wedding guest style is no easy feat. But Katrina, Sakshi, Shilpa, Neha and many other fashion-forward ladies did it with their embellished lehengas and sarees.
