Why The #DeepVeer Wedding Is Everything We Want To Copy
If you stalked the pictures from the #DeepVeer wedding… what do I mean by if? Of course, we were all glued to our Instagram and positively swooned when they released pictures from their wedding released. The amount of oxytocin just their wedding created was enough to go around for a couple of years. And we weren’t the only ones all starry eyed and more keenly aware of our single-ness than ever before, the stars were struck as well. Karan Johar’s comment on their picture, ‘Uff I want to get married.’ resonated far and wide, he was speaking for all us. But what is it about the Deep Veer wedding that has had us so thoroughly intrigued, so glued to our phones, so curious (alternatively, nosey)? And why is this the wedding all of want to copy. We have a few theories.
Convention Was Done Away With
Deepika and Ranveer didn’t care about society’s diktats. They help it at a place away from their country even while people protested. Apparently, it meant they weren’t patriotic enough. They didn’t bother with grand declarations of love though we all had an inkling. They simply didn’t care enough for log kya kahenge.
They Still Respected Tradition
While they might have not anything remotely cliche, they respected traditions. From having the wedding ceremony in the Konkani and Sindhi way, to the glorious kaleerein that Deepika wore, everything pointed to a reverence for their own lineage and upbringing. Sigh, so warm.
Their Theme Was Nothing We Have Seen Before
Wedding themes can be pretty daunting. It requires everyone to dress up in a certain colour, and this is almost always different from the bride and groom. Deepika and Ranveer had a colour scheme for every function but like the pictures give away, everyone was in on the fun. The dusky rose for the mehendi was what everyone was wearing. That’s pretty cool, we think.
How Happy They Looked
Weddings are a lot of fun, agreed. But the pressure on the groom and bride is often to appear subdued and solemn. Deepika and Ranveer showed a figurative middle finger to this regressive thinking. They looked like they were having a ball at their own wedding, laughing, smiling and just having fun. Basically they set some pretty epic #couplegoals which most of us are going to try and emulate must mostly fail.
They Didn’t Give A Damn About Expectations
People expected them to have a grand wedding in India. #DeepVeer gave no f****. We expected that the whole of Bollywood would be invited. #DeepVeer, yet again, had no f**** to give. We want pictures, we want access to your wedding, we all screamed hoarse. No, said #DeepVeer, we will keep you on tenterhooks and only release what we choose to release. And though they didn’t say it in so many words, they asked us to take our expectations and put it where the sun don’t shine.
