ELEGANT BRIDAL OUTFITS INSPIRED BY BOLLYWOOD CELEBRITIES

You’d be lying if you haven’t thought of having the perfect, right-out-of K-Jo movie kind of wedding at least once in your life. The picture-perfect venue, a well-coordinated sangeet performance, and of course, the breathtaking brides!

Bollywood has always inspired our lives in more than one way; be it our idolization of a perfect life, or painting an exceptional picture of love. B-town fashion, however, affects our daily lives the most. Each movie brings with it an all-new era of fashion trends.

With lives moving from the big screen to the smaller ones in each hand, a new trend arrives almost every passing day. The same is with wedding outfits; watching the private lives of your favourite celebs and seeing the best designers of the industry dress them up for their perfect wedding, the expectations of our dream bridal wear have changed too.

We, the best wedding planners in Chandigarh, share your love for the B-town trends. Bitten by the same filmy bug as you, we bring to you the bridal outfits worn by our favourite Bollywood hotties as they say “I Do”.

NATASHA DALAL

A designer herself, Natasha Dalal is the most recent bride of B-town. Ditching the ever day reds and pinks, Natasha went for a subtle and unusual choice.

This newlywed bride picked a pale gold lehenga, with dual tones of silver and gold embroidery. Her heavily embellished lehenga had intricate detailing all over, right from the floral details on the border of the dupatta to the star motifs on the sleeves.

Natasha completed her wedding look with diamond jewellery. Her emerald pendant, paired with pearl drop earrings and complementing maang tikka, all added to the charm of this glittering bride.

As unusual as her choices were throughout the wedding, Natasha ditched the golden, and choose silver kalire by Mrinalini Chandra instead.

Her looks are a great inspiration for all the brides who are tired of going for pinks and green, just because that’s not red. Not only does this ornate lehenga add an extra drama, but also makes you shine brighter on the day you need it the most.

PRIYANKA CHOPRA

If there is someone whose wedding look spoke “Indian Goddess” for itself, it was Priyanka Chopra!

Priyanka’s multi-cultural wedding had several awe-spiring outfits for brides-to-be to consider, but her red Sabyasachi wedding lehenga stole all the limelight. Sabyasachi, like always, created this magical wedding outfit to help Priyanka get the best of both the traditional and the western worlds. The hand-cut organza flowers, French knots in silk floss and layers of thread work on the bright red colour made this lehenga worth all the hype.

Priyanka checked all the markers of an Indian bride; sindoor, bindi, a tradition Nath, maang tikka, red chooda, haath phool and other traditional jewellery. Mrilnalini Chandra was PeeCee’s go-to too for customized kalire.  

Priyanka Chopra gave “right-out-of-dreams” bridal wear an all-new definition with her wedding look, especially for all the bride-to-be’s who like to keep the traditional element alive.

ANUSHKA SHARMA

Married in the dreamy city of Florence, Anushka Sharma was a vision as a bride. Not sticking by the traditional red-maroon bridal colour, Sabyasachi Mukherjee created yet another masterpiece in pale blush-pink for her.

The colour scheme and the striking hand-work on the lehenga were all planned such that they fitted the occasion as well as the venue of the wedding. A combination of the famous “tilla” work, rhinestones, and the finest hand-embroidered Indian lotus motifs merged with European flora and fauna (Exotic birds and butterflies), this lehenga was beyond divine. 

Anushka completed her look with a traditional mathapatti, layered necklaces, and jadau jhumkas. To add a hint of oomph to the entire outfit, this Bollywood bride wore fresh hydrangeas in her hair. 

Blush pink is not very new now, but even today, if you are looking for an alternative to red and are not wanting to be too experimental with the colour pallet, this look makes a great pick.

DEEPIKA PADUKONE

Wearing a wedding classical by Sabyasachi, Deepika looked no less than a Queen from the royal houses of Rajputana.

Another masterpiece by Sabyasachi Mukherjee himself, this sindoor-red lengha was adorned with golden Aari-taari, zardosi, tilla-ka-kaam, salma-sitaara, gota, badla, and kiran work. Traditional motifs of flora and fauna were also prominent highlights of this very majestic bridal wear.

The detail that caught our eye the most was the wordings on her dupatta: “सदा सौभाग्‍यवती भव”. When translated, it means, “may you always be blessed with good luck and prosperity”.

A Queen both on-screen and in real life, Deepika completed her regal look with statement necklaces, maang tikas, chaandbalis, kadas and bangles, choodas, kaliras, juttis and parandhis. Everything from the detailing on her outfit to her accessories helped in creating powerful imagery for this every elegant bride.

SONAM KAPOOR

Soman claimed the “fashionista of Bollywood” way before her marriage and that makes us all the more curious to see what she wore for her big day.

Sonam’s Big-Fat-Punjabi wedding was a treat for the eyes, especially for fashion enthusiasts. She opted for a white lehenga dancing, looking like an absolute doll for her sangeet. Her floral ‘guthh’ and stunning earrings grabbed the attention.

Sonam stuck to the basic colour pallet of red and golden for her Anand Karaj lehenga. This masterpiece by Anuradha Vakil, it was red and super bright. Embroidered with the kalabattu technique, using real gold and silver threads, her lehenga centred around a stylised lotus motif.

Pairing it with a subtle red chooda, beautiful headband, and layered neckpieces, Sonam was a vision as a Punjabi bride.

NEHA DHUPIA

Neha Dhupia also gave major wedding outfit ideas to the girls who don’t wish to dress over-the-top. For the bride-to-be’s who prefer simplicity, Neha Dhupia’s wedding attire can be serious goals.

Dressed in a pink Anita Dongre lehenga, adorned with Gotta Patti work and bandh gala neckpiece, Neha Dhupia rocked her simple Anand Karaj ceremony.

A tiny maang teeka, with a small plain pink bindi, completed her look. And of course, her hair bun decorated with white flowers and the plain golden kaleere looked out of the world.

GAUHAR KHAN

Gauhar Khan’s nikah was all over the internet. She chose yellow for her Mehandi as well as for her Haldi. Dressed up in flower tikka and earrings, her Haldi dress gave serious goals. Usually one doesn’t have many ideas to experiment with the Haldi or Mehandi look but Gauhar proved all of us wrong.

Her Nikah look in pearl white sharara looked phenomenal. She chose to dance on ‘Jhallah Wallah’ in Manish Malhotra’s maroon velvet lehenga, with maroon dupatta, and a headband. Many didn’t approve of her reception look, but for those brides who wish to look different, she might just be the right inspiration.

SOME OTHER BEAUTIFUL BRIDES THAT CAUGHT OUR ATTENTION!

Neha Kakkar recently got married and she chose a mix of all the designs to create her look.

Alia Bhatt too rocked her friend’s wedding party with a silvery-white lehenga which can also be considered by the brides-to-be for their sangeet or engagement.

As a bride, you can also choose to recreate the old and traditional pieces just like Kareena Kapoor Khan. She inherited the wedding attire of Sharmila Tagore and wore it to look like a perfect Nawab Sahib’s Bahu.

⚜️Choose whichever style speaks the most to you, but we suggest you to not follow a particular trend blindly. Take ideas and execute them within your budget, interest, and requirements. Feel free to pick just the colour schemes from the celebs, while your main dress speaks of its originality.

⚜️Indian weddings are all about fun, good food, nice music, and lots of dance. But Indian weddings are also about pious promises, sacred vows, undying faith, and spirit of unity. Let us take pride in our way of celebrating unity, and here are our blessings for all the brides and grooms for their struggle for finding the best wedding outfit!
