The 90s Bollywood Bridal Trends That Need a Big Comeback!

Fashion should not only be comfortable but also ahead of its time. And Bollywood has always surprised us with many fashion trends. With many retro looks having a big comeback, we are finally realizing how much of a fashionista we all were when we copied Bollywood styles. The ’90s was an era of new style and bold colors. From cycling shorts and crop tops to printed co-ords and white ensemble, Bollywood pretty much covered all the styles. But we are here to talk about the bridal trends that absolutely need a comeback.

So let’s go down memory lane to see bridal trends of the 90s:

#1. Chamak Chamak mehendi

A very traditional element of any wedding. We don’t know how this trend started but who doesn’t like sparkles! Give your Mehendi a makeover and sprinkle it with glitter. Glitter mehndi comes in a variety of colors and you can always choose to color coordinate with your bridal wear or go for a contrast. But all we can say is that YES! We need this trend. It’s now time to shine (quite literally) at your own wedding!

#2. Top Bun

With the ongoing trend of low buns or open hair, many may not remember, but covering an uptight high bun with embellished dupatta and a heavy maang tikka was a very common bridal trend. Many actresses including Aishwarya Rai Bachchan rocked this style in her famous song ‘nimboda nimboda’. And we may not be a beauty like her but this doesn’t sounds bad right?

#3. Same Same

Silver and gold, the most infamous bridal colors of the 90s. No, we are not talking about the jewelry. Inspired by Bollywood actresses, Kajol from DDLJ and Sushmita Sen, the rage of opting for full gold bridal wear with the same color jewelry became a norm. Not only with gold, but silver too joined the competition. Though one may consider it a bit gaudy for a wedding, with the right amount of accessories and the right makeup, this can actually be THE ONE for you.

#4. High Collar

Madhuri Dixit was no doubt the fashion icon of the 90s. In her hit Bollywood movie, Hum Apke Hain Kaun, she managed to steal the show with her intricate detailed high collar choli. With low cut or backless becoming a common trend for brides, the beautifully detailed high collar will surely be fashionable and unique.
