Balle balle... balle balle...! Bollywood had their dancing shoes on pretty much all throughout this year because who do shaadi dance better than Bollywood stars themselves? The big fat Bollywood weddings that we all have seen on the big screen spilled over into our lives this year courtesy, Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh, Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas, Sonam Kapoor and Anand Ahuja and many more. Trust us when we say this that the list is long. 2018 has truly been a year of celeb weddings with not only Bollywood stars getting married but also TV celebs opting for extravagant shaadi festivities. Here's the best photos from the celeb wedding albums of 2018 for you. You're welcome.
Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh:
Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh had an intimate wedding at Italy's Lake Como in November, after which they rocked Mumbai and Bengaluru with their blockbuster wedding receptions. Deepika and Ranveer, who maintained a strict no-photos policy at the Villa del Balbianello in Italy, treated us to their wedding album after touching down in Mumbai. They had a Konkani wedding on November 14, which was followed by a North Indian shaadi on November 15. They hosted three wedding receptions in India - one in Bengaluru (Deepika's hometown) on November 21 and two in Mumbai on November 28 and December 1 respectively.
Priyanka Chopra And Nick Jonas:
Deepika and Ranveer's wedding festivities partially coincided with those of Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas. The couple also had two wedding ceremonies, the first of which was the Christian wedding on December 1, when both families joined the bride and groom in Ralph Lauren outfits. Priyanka and Nick had a traditional North Indian wedding on December 2, at which they wore Sabyasachi. Priyanka's wedding ceremonies and the pre-wedding functions were in Jodhpur in the presence of just close friends and family. Priyanka and Nick also released selected photos from their wedding on social media. Prime Minister Narendra Modi attended their wedding reception in Delhi. The couple hosted another one in Mumbai on December 19 for friends and family.
One of the most special things that our relationship has given us is a merging of families who love and respect each other's faiths and cultures. And so planning our wedding with an amalgamation of both was so so amazing. An important part of the pre wedding rituals for the girl in an Indian wedding is the Mehendi. Once again we made it our own and it was an afternoon that kicked off the celebrations in the way we both dreamed. @nickjonas
Having our family and friends share our special day with us meant so much...the smiles, the words, the love and the hugs - all so thoughtful.

Trust me, it has all my favorite gift ideas in one place and was so much fun to build! #AllOnAmazon #Ad #AmazonWeddingRegistry @amazonhome
Sonam Kapoor And Anand Ahuja:
Sonam Kapoor and Anand Ahuja had a true blue Punjabi wedding in Mumbai on May 8 with band baaja baarat that got Mumbai talking for days. Delhi-based entrepreneur Anand danced with Bollywood's biggest names not just at the star-studded reception but also at the mehendi ceremony and sangeet parties. Sonam and Anand married in an Anand Karaj on the morning of May 8 and hosted the wedding reception on the same evening. Anand, who owns a sneaker brand named VegNonVeg, wore a pair to his own wedding reception - setting the trend for Deepika Padukone who also kicked off her heels to dance at her Bollywood reception in trainers.

Isha Ambani And Anand Piramal:
Perhaps the grandest of all celebrity weddings was that of Mukesh and Nita Ambani's daughter Isha Ambani's. The venue for Isha and industrialist Anand Piramal's big fat wedding was the Ambani residence Antilia, which saw the creme-de-la-creme of Bollywood pouring in to bless the couple on December 12. Deepika, Ranveer, Priyanka, Nick, the Khans and the Bachchans, most of who were also part of Isha Ambani's pre-wedding festivities in Udaipur, were in attendance.

In viral pictures and videos on social media, Amitabh Bachchan, Aamir Khan, Shah Rukh Khan and other stars were spotted helping serve dinner to the groom's family as part of a traditional ritual. Previously, Shah Rukh and Gauri had also lit up Isha Ambani's sangeet in Udaipur with performances, as did Abhishek and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. Beyonce flew in to Udaipur for just a day - she was the star performer at the sangeet. The guest list also included the likes of Hillary Clinton and John Kerry, all the way from USA.

Neha Dhupia And Angad Bedi:
Just two days after Sonam's shaadi, Neha Dhupia and Angad Bedi had a hush hush wedding at a Delhi gurudwara in the presence of close family members. Karan Johar was the first celebrity to congratulate the couple on social media. At that point it was speculated that the couple had a rushed wedding because of Neha's then unconfirmed pregnancy. But it was only much later that they made the pregnancy announcement and revealed in interviews that the previous speculation was actually true. Neha Dhupia and Angad Bedi welcomed a baby girl in November, who they've named Mehr Dhupia Bedi.

Milind Soman And Ankita Konwar:
Milind Soman and Ankita Konwar zeroed in on Alibaug as their destination wedding, which was perhaps the cutest wedding ever. Ahead of their wedding, eyebrows were raised citing the fact that Ankita is several years younger than the 53-year-old actor-model. Milind and Ankita had a Maharashtrian wedding on April 22. Ankita, who is from Assam, was a traditional Assamese bride for the ceremony. The couple also had a "barefoot wedding" later in July, which Ankita described as: "The barefoot wedding we always wanted in the woods with the beautiful family."
Shweta Basu Prasad And Rohit Mittal:
Priyanka and Nick's was not the only December wedding. Actress Shweta Basu Prasad married her long-time fiance Rohit Mittal in Pune on December 13. Shweta, who was the perfect Bengali bride in a traditionally draped saree and mukut, had a wedding as per Bengali and Marwari traditions with family and close friends in tow. Shweta also filled up her wedding album with cute pictures from the pre-wedding festivities.

Sasural Simar Ka co-stars Dipika Kakar and Shoaib Ibrahim also got married this year in a private ceremony in Bhopal, Shoaib's hometown. The couple's February wedding was as per Muslim traditions. Dipika was a stunning bride in a pink ensemble, which she accessorised with traditional kundan jewellery along with passa, maangtika and haath phool. "I can see the reflection of Mrs Dipika Shoaib Ibrahim in his eyes.. and it's all I ever dreamt off," Dipika, who is a Bigg Boss 12 participant, had written on her wedding post.
Raghu Ram And Natalie Di Luccio:
Meanwhile, TV personality Raghu Ram married Canadian singer Natalie Di Luccio in a beach wedding on December 12. The couple shared dreamy pictures from their South Indian wedding, which was also attended by Rannvijay Singha, who introduced the newlyweds as "Mr and Mrs" on social media. Later, Raghu released more pictures from his filmy sangeet and said: "The Canadians killing it desi style" for the performances of the ladkiwale.

Bigg Boss 9 winner Prince Narula, who met and fell in love with TV actress Yuvika Chaudhary on the show 2015, had a fairy tale wedding in Mumbai in October. A bevy of TV stars such as Jay Bhanushali, Mahi Vij, Rashmi Desai, Gurmeet Choudhary and Debina Bonnerjee attended the wedding while the guest list also included names such as Neha Dhupia and Tabu.
Sumeet Vyas And Ekta Kaul:
Actor couple Sumeet Vyas and Ekta Kaul trended a great deal in September this year after pictures from their wedding ceremony in Jammu, Ekta's hometown, were shared by the couple's friends on social media.

Ekta Kaul continues to post her wedding pictures on Instagram every now and then.

Gaurav Chopra And Hitisha:
Actor and Bigg Boss 10 contestant Gaurav Chopra married Hitisha in an intimate ceremony in Delhi in February this year. While the couple were extremely guarded about their wedding photos, fan clubs had curated a lovely click of the "dulha and dulhan" from inside their wedding.
Gautam Rode And Pankhuri Awasthy:
February this year witnessed another celebrity wedding - television stars Gautam Rode and Pankhuri Awasthy also opted for a private wedding ceremony at the Tijara Fort Palace in Alwar, Rajashthan.

Phew! Congratulations, everybody.
