Confused about whether you should stick with the traditional saree and lehenga or go contemporary with a peach-coloured gown for your wedding? Bollywood can serve as your inspiration. After all, it is the best way to catch up on the latest Indian bridal trends and bridal collections by top Indian fashion designers.
Don’t worry; you don’t need to watch hours of Bollywood movies just to get one perfect look, because we have already shortlisted five Bollywood-inspired wedding looks that you should consider:
1. Deepika Padukone in Chennai Express
Deepika Padukone’s South Indian bridal look in Chennai Express was simple yet elegant. Even though Deepika wore a traditional red and golden Kanchipuram saree, her jewellery was a combination of traditional and contemporary style.
Her nude makeup brought the whole look together and the delicate flowers in her braid looked amazing.
2. Alia Bhatt in 2 States
Alia Bhatt was the ultimate adorable Indian bride donning a simple South Indian traditional look in the movie 2 States. The gold waistband she wore was one of the prettiest parts of her wedding look.
Her hair was covered in mogra just like any traditional South Indian would do. Alia’s wedding look was rather refreshing and different as compared to other heavily dressed Bollywood brides.
3. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in Jodha Akbar
Former Miss World Aishwarya Rai Bachchan played the role of Queen Jodha in the movie Jodha Akbar and was one of the most beautiful brides ever. The traditional red Rajasthani wedding outfit was designed by Neeta Lulla. She wore jewellery made of Swarovski crystals, emeralds, ruby, pearls, and 22-karat gold.
One of her most famous jewellery pieces from her wedding was her huge armband which she wore on both of her arms.
4. Nargis Fakhri in Rockstar
Kashmiri brides are not often seen in Bollywood movies but when they are shown, there is nothing quite as beautiful. Nargis Fakhri played the role of a Kashmiri bride in the movie Rockstar, along with Ranbir Kapoor. Her wedding outfit was designed by Manish Malhotra and Aki Narula.
The traditional Kashmiri lehenga accompanied by Kashmiri jewellery made her look gorgeous. An interesting part of her attire was the Kashmiri topi she had worn along with the outfit that most Kashmiri Hindu brides wear.
5. Deepika Padukone in Bajirao Mastani
Even though there was no wedding scene in the movie, the red anarkali-lehenga Deepika wore in Bajirao Mastani’s poster was still a bridal look. Deepika was styled by using two dupattas, one red and one golden. The intricate golden floral work on the lehenga added to the charm.
The look was very contemporary but the jewellery and makeup was traditional and fierce.
All these Bollywood brides definitely rocked their wedding days, so which Bollywood diva is your favorite Bollywood bride?
