Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma

From Virushka’s wedding date to her designer attires, all the details related to Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli’s wedding was a secret affair. A lot was discussed and wrote about Anushka’s wedding and reception attires, which was designed by popular designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee. 

Anushka wore pale pink lehenga for her Tuscany wedding and opted for the traditional ethnic wear for her two post wedding reception parties which was held in Delhi and Mumbai. 

Popular designer Sabyasachi, who designed Anushka’s wedding attires revealed that he faced much criticism for Anushka’s Delhi wedding reception attire. 

In an interview with iDiva, Sabyasachi said, "I got a lot of flak for Anushka's Delhi reception outfit because a lot of people said ‘Iss main designer kya hai?' But the comments made me smile because that is exactly what we wanted to do, we wanted her to be accessible, we did not want her to sit in an ivory tower.’’

Anushka wore red and golden ethnic Benarasi sari during her Delhi wedding reception. But the designer Sabyasachi received much criticism for his design. He said, "I don’t think Indian brides feel complete without wearing the colour red in one of their functions.’’   

I don’t think Indian brides feel complete without wearing the colour red in one of their functions. Anushka decided to wear red on her reception. And much to my absolute delight, it would be a red Benarasi saree. From the by-lanes of Peeli Kothi in Benaras. I was particularly excited about this look because I have seen an entire generation of Bengali women getting married in red Benarasi sarees. The red bindi, the sindoor and the mogras in her hair just made the look more potent and powerful. She chose to wear heritage uncut diamond choker and jhumkas from the Sabyasachi Bridal Jewelry collection. Bollywood can play a major role in spreading awareness about Indian textiles and handlooms. And I must say the occasion couldn’t be better. I know copies of this saree will flood the entire country in the next few months to come, which also means that a million weaver’s children will be back at school. All I can say is thank you Anushka! Virat chose to complement his new bride in a very subtle and elegant manner. He wore a black textured silk signature bandhgala with the house buttons in 18k gold and a white silk kurta with hand-woven brocade churidaar. He teamed it with mojris from the Sabyasachi accessories line and a hand-embroidered antique Pashmina shawl from our ‘Kashmir Revival’ project. @anushkasharma @virat.kohli @bridesofsabyasachi @groomsofsabyasachi @tajdiplomaticenclave For all jewellery related queries, kindly contact sabyasachijewelry@sabyasachi.com #Sabyasachi #TheWorldOfSabyasachi #SabyasachiJewelry #AnushkaSharmaViratKohliReception #Virushka #AnushkaSharma #ViratKohli

Sabyasachi said, ‘’Anushka is a Pahari girl, and I think for her side of the family, culture, tradition are very, very important. She wanted to do the works, the jhumkas, the nath and two dupattas, but she was getting married in Tuscany, so she wanted to be in sync with what the natural surroundings of Tuscany would be.’’
