For the aforementioned puja, Deepika wore an orange salwar suit from the collections Sabyasachi. Meanwhile, Deepika's team, including her manager and team of stylists, have already reached Italy.
The Tale Of Two Weddings
There will reportedly be two wedding ceremonies for Ranveer and Deepika. As per a report in mid-day, a wedding in accordance with South Indian rituals is scheduled for November 14 while there will be another wedding ceremony on November 15 as per Punjabi traditions. The wedding will reportedly be a four-day affair with a sangeet ceremony reportedly scheduled for November 13. Deepika and Ranveer have also apparently planned a party for the wedding guests after their wedding on November 15.
Venue So Darn Pretty We Want To Scream!
The Villa del Balbianello, tucked away in a peninsula on the scenic coast of Lake Como, is currently being prepped for the Padukone-Bhavnani wedding. Only a few pictures of the venue - since Deepika and Ranveer touched in Italy - have made it on social media and in one of which, officials can be seen making arrangements for the gathering. Villa del Balbianello is where a portion of Bond movie Casino Royale was filmed. The Ambanis also recently hosted the big fat engagement of their daughter Isha Ambani in Lake Como.

Who's Invited And Who's Not
As per a previous Filmfare report, the couple want to keep their wedding an extremely private affair with the guest list restricted to merely 30 names including close friends and family. While Karan Johar, Katrina Kaif and Alia Bhatt specifically said they are not invited to the wedding, Deepika's first co-star Shah Rukh Khan and her first director Farah Khan are said to be part of the Italy wedding. Yash Raj Films' Aditya Chopra and Sanjay Leela Bhansali - who directed the couple in three films - are also reportedly invited. Before leaving for Italy, the couple were spotted visiting Mr Bhansali and Farah Khan personally with their wedding invites.
No Mobile Phones, Please
Like we said before, Deepika and Ranveer want to keep their wedding an extremely intimate affair and would rather have pictures not circulated on social media. Hence, mobile phones will reportedly not be allowed inside the wedding venue. "They have asked guests to not bring their cell phones to the ceremony. Considering the fact that it will be a destination wedding, there will be fewer people and all the arrangements will be in place. While the two, in all likelihood, will share pictures with their fans eventually, they hope this step will help them guard their privacy," DNA had quoted a source as saying.
Honeymoon Before Work Resumes
While Deepika has a light work roster, Ranveer is looking forward to the release of Simmba and later Gully Boy. He will also get busy filming Karan Johar's Takht and resuming work on Kabir Khan's '83. Hence, the couple will reportedly fly off to an undisclosed honeymoon destination before resuming work commitments. "The couple will head for a brief honeymoon before Ranveer dives into the promotions of Simmba which opens on December 28," stated a Mumbai Mirror report.
Wedding Receptions To Banta Hai, Boss
After wrapping their wedding festivities in Italy, Ranveer and Deepika will reportedly host two reception parties in India - one in Bengaluru (Deepika's hometown) and the other in Mumbai. The Leela in Bengaluru is said to be the reception venue for November 21 as it houses Deepika's favourite Italian restaurant. The venue for the Mumbai reception on November 28 is the Grand Hyatt. Deepika and Ranveer will make their first public appearance as a married couple at the Bengaluru reception.
Home, Sweet Home
After the wedding, Ranveer is most likely to shift to Deepika's plush apartment in Mumbai's Prabhadevi as they are yet to finalise their dream home - a property of their expectation would take some time to be zeroed in. Ranveer reportedly decided to move in with Deepika for the interim period as she stays alone - her parents are in Bengaluru.
Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh, co-stars of films such as Ram-Leela, Bajirao Mastani and "Padmaavat", have been together for six years now.
