Divyanka stole everyone's heart with her confident acting and charming persona in the famous telly show, Yeh Hai Mohabbatein. No wonder our favourite Ishima did not fail to surprise us in her real life bridal avatar too. The charismatic actress got married recently to her co-star, Vivek Dahiya, on July 8 in Bhopal. She is a simple girl yet a stunner, and her bridal looks are simply gorgeous.
The much talked about wedding had five days of celebrations, and on each day, Divyanka looked like an absolute diva. All soon-to-be brides can learn a lesson or two from each look of this beautiful dulhaniya.
Every girl dreams of a fairytale wedding. The couple’s pre-wedding photoshoot was like a dream. Divyanka was clad in a white flowy backless gown and she looked nothing less than a princess. She kept her look simple with a delicate necklace and simple earrings. She chose to keep her hair open with loose curls and a front buff.
They also had a traditional pre-wedding shoot where she completely nailed the look as a royal bride. She gracefully carried her orange lehenga and jadau ornaments.
Don’t go over-the-top with your pre-wedding look, keep it simple and chic, just like Divyanka. Keep the jewellery, makeup and hair also minimal for those jaw-dropping pictures.
For her mehendi ceremony, she kept it simple and sweet. We just loved her pink lehenga. The beautiful combination of light and dark pink looks awesome with gold border. The color complemented her skin tone well. In case of ornaments, she chose to wear only earrings with real flowers, which were so pretty that they stood out. She kept her beautiful straight hair open!
The lovely combination of pinks is what caught eyeballs. We also loved how her blouse was designed with a front embellished neckline, which did not require her to wear any necklace. Also, how can one forget those pink flowers in her earrings. She designed the jewellery herself.
Choosing a colour which complements your skin tone is very important. Also, there should be elegance and simplicity in your look. In pre-wedding functions, wearing one statement jewellery piece works really well. Also, remember to keep your makeup and hair minimal.

For her haldi ceremony, she opted for a beautiful yellow lehenga with gold embroidery, and she looks adorable in it. And those beautiful pearl and stones embedded on her lehenga were subtle yet dazzling. We loved her simple and traditional jewellery that included neckpiece, earrings and kadas. With her hair half-tied neatly, she looked nothing less than a beautiful goddess. And, we heard that her ensemble was designed by her mom.
We totally loved her choice of colour for lehenga- bright yellow with a dash of gold! We also loved those retro puffed sleeves.
Bright colours look resplendent, and most importantly, you should choose the blouse design taking into consideration your body type. If you have narrow shoulders, try choosing a broad neckline with sleeves which will make your shoulders look broad. We must say, Divyanka just nailed it right!
Divyanka looked gorgeous in her blue and gold coloured outfit for the sangeet ceremony. As her dress was heavily embellished, she wore only statement earrings. As she had to perform on her sangeet, she tied her hair from the front and kept waves at the back for some volume. Once again, her dress looked mesmerising on her. If that was not all, the groom colour co-ordinated the pocket square of his sherwani with her blue outfit.
We loved the way she experimented with this beautiful and bold colour. Combination of royal blue and golden was really outstanding.
Pre-wedding ceremonies are good time to explore different colours. Instead of going for usual traditional colours, you can go for unique colour combinations.
Divyanka chose the most-loved colour of every Indian bride- RED. And, she effortlessly nailed the look. She looked ravishing in a gold and red lehenga. She wore beautiful gold and diamond jewellery to complete her bridal look. Her hairstyle was a neat bun. She used two dupattas- one with the lehenga and other one to cover her head. Vivek had colour co-ordinated his sherwani with his bride’s lehenga. Together they looked like a match made in heaven.
Her simple and elegant jewellery stole our hearts. We loved that her look was just perfect, with nothing going over the top.
All brides-to-be should remember that your wedding lehenga and jewellery should be perfectly coordinated and not outdo each other. If you are going to wear a heavily embellished lehenga, then select delicate piece of jewellery and vice versa.
Usually, many brides wear the same outfit on their pheras as well. But, Divyanka chose to wear a different outfit for her pheras. After looking divine in a red lehenga, she opted for a stunning lehenga in yellow and pink with a hint of light blue. Needless to say, she looked like a royal bride.
A big thumbs up to the colour combination. She selected two most favourite colours of any Indian wedding- Yellow and Pink. The beautiful outfit was embellished with kundan and zari work. We also loved her heavy jewellery, especially the Rajput style borla (maang tikka).
If you are planning to change for pheras, then opt for an outfit in bright colours that will make your face glow. Also, don’t forget to wear stylish traditional jewellery, complete with a maang tikka and nath.
Divyanka looked like a fairy, straight from heaven in her reception attire. Her marsala coloured lehenga with heavy gold embroidery just bowled us. While Vivek chose to wear a black tuxedo, the couple looked amazing together. Her hairstyle, a French bun with a lot of knots and roles looked gorgeous. Again, she chose to wear simple polki jewellery.
We loved the colour of her lehenga. Also she chose to wear a long blouse to suit her body type. A big thumbs up to her stylish hairstyle and subtle makeup.
It is better to wear what you are comfortable in and what looks good on your body. Instead of blindly following the fashion, it is great to wear your attitude. As you are done with all the rituals, you can play around with your look and hairstyle.
The couple perfectly ended their wedding celebrations by hosting a grand wedding reception in Mumbai for their industry friends. The couple made a grand entry at their reception wearing colour-coordinated outfits in the shade of purple. Divyanka looked gorgeous as ever in a stunning purple gown with intricate embroidery in gold. She gave heavy jewellery a miss and decided to wear diamond dangler earrings to keep it simple and stunning.
It was definitely the colour of the gown and also the hatke neckline of the outfit that was perfectly complementing her broad shoulders.
Ditch the traditional Indian outfit and opt for an Indo-western attire for your reception. Also, keep your jewellery and makeup minimal and don’t forget to experiment with your hairstyle.
Well, if you would have seen all her outfits closely, you might have noticed that none of them was heavily embroidered or embellished. It was a perfect balance of perfect makeup, on-point hairdo and those subtle yet exquisite outfits, that made her look like a diva on all the functions. So, she clearly is an idol for all the girls who want to go for a minimal look on their wedding, isn't she?
