Who said you can't rock a nude lip on your big day?

One of Bollywood's leading ladies, Anushka Sharma has tied the knot.

And wow, did she look stunning while doing it!

The actress married Indian cricket team captain, Virat Kohli in a hush-hush affair in Tuscany, Italy. As pictures started pouring in last night, we couldn't help but drool over her custom-made Sabyasachi Mukherjee outfits, make-up, jewellery AND hairdos!

Here are a few takeaways from dissecting her wedding style that we feel brides-to-be could benefit from:

You don't need to rock a bold lip on your big day

Minimal make-up shouldn't be what you consider unconventional but sadly, bridal make-up has always been a little OTT. Take a page out of Anushka's style book instead and rock a simple, less is more look instead.

You don't even need to wear red for that matter

Pastels are the way to go!

Fun fact: Anushka's pale pink wedding ensemble was embellished with silver-gold metal thread, pearls and beads and took 67 karigars a whopping 32 days to make!

Wear flowers in your hair

The real drama was in the hair. This flirty, sophisticated hair-do using Tuscan hydrangeas by celeb hairstylist Gabriel Georgiou just demands attention.

Seriously feeling some major flower power vibes here.

Keep it sleek

For her mehndi, Sharma wore a more quirky number, very Ali Xeeshan. Naturally, with a loud, graphic lehnga, you can't go overboard in other departments. We're digging the sleek middle-parted straight hair!

Let the velvet do the talking

Velvet is a winter staple but not that many brides experiment with the luxe fabric, it's mostly wedding attendees. However, that seems to be changing and Sharma is right there on the forefront of this trend picking up.

The Jab Tak Hai Jaan actress wore a maroon velvet sari for her engagement coupled with a smokey eye that just screams "hey. look at me!"

Pair traditional jewellery with contemporary outfits

You don't have to completely shun tradition even if you are a modern bride; jhumkas are timeless and trendy! You can have the best of both worlds, like Anushka who mostly wore pieces from Sabyasachi's ethereal Heritage collection.
