The saree was bought from a store in Bengaluru by Ujjala Padukone.
Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh’s destination wedding indeed made headlines. The couple also posted some candid pictures from their wedding on the social media platforms on Tuesday evening, taking the internet by storm.
While the actress looked stunning in every attire designed by Sabyasachi Mukherjee, the wedding saree for the Konkani ceremony was not from the designer’s collection. It was bought from a local Bengaluru store by the bride’s mother, Ujjala Padukone, and then passed on to Sabyasachi who modified it and added the bridal dupatta and jewellery.
In a post on Instagram, Sabyasachi wrote: “As per Konkani tradition, the bride’s saree is gifted to her by the mother for the wedding. Deepika’s wedding saree was given to us by her mother Mrs. Ujjala Padukone. We have just received information that the saree was bought from Angadi Galleria, Bengaluru and we would like to them due credit for the same.”
Deepika and Ranveer’s wedding ceremonies concluded in Italy on November 15. The couple returned to India over the weekend and they are currently in Bengaluru, where the Padukones hosted a reception for the newlyweds on Wednesday evening.
