7 Wedding Outfits Inspired from the Best Bollywood Movies
If you could pick out just two things that Indians are obsessed with, it’s got to be cricket and Bollywood. Right from the movies to the star’s everyday life, people take inspiration from literally anything and everything related to Bollywood. So, why not take inspo for your wedding outfits from the iconic brides from some of the most favourite Bollywood movies? That’s a great way to look your best and you’ll certainly feel like a star on your big day!
So, here are some wedding outfits inspired from some of the best bridal looks from Bollywood movies!
#1. Aishwarya Rai from Jodhaa Akbar
Let’s start with the best! Literally everything the Bachchan Bahu wore in this movie is certainly wedding-worthy. The outfits and jewellery were truly breathtaking. If you’re taking inspiration from this bridal look opt for Jewellery that’s more traditionally designed. Make sure your clothes and lehenga are also traditionally designed and fall into the timeless classic category. Don’t forget the bindi and the ‘nath’ (bridal nose ring) to complete the look!
#2. Kalki Koechlin and Deepika Padukone from Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani
Deepika’s black and blue saree from the ‘Badtameez Dil’ was a rage when the movie released and is still an icon. The shimmering saree with the bright contrasting colour is perfect for a bride’s Sangeet or cocktail night. Even the multi-coloured lehenga that Deepika wore during the Mehendi ceremony is perfect for a bride’s Mehendi and Haldi function. The key is to find contrasting colours that flow together. Even Kalki’s classic red bridal lehenga is what wedding outfits dreams are made of. To have a similar look, opt for a lehenga with a minimalistic blouse and shawl and a skirt with heavy and intricate work.
#3. Kareena Kapoor Khan from 3 Idiots
Kareena’s wedding scene in this movie was offbeat and so was her bridal lehenga. The rustic red mixed with the orange was certainly not the norm and nor was the Anarkali style kurta paired with the lehenga skirt. It’s safe to say that the ‘Begam’ pulled off the look in style. The Anarkali style Kurta even gave her an hourglass-shaped figure. For a bridal look inspired from this offbeat look, ditch the small lehenga blouse and opt for longer sleeves and longer blouse and don’t forget the statement choker or the rani haar!
#4. Deepika Padukone in Bajirao Mastani
Padukone looked ethereal in this movie, be it in traditional Peshwa clothes or in her Parsi attire. Her dresses were elegant and had some amazing work done on them. No wonder, that the designer, Anju Joshi came up with a whole line called the Bajirao Mastani collection. The most iconic look of Deepika as Mastani which brides can take inspiration from is her ensemble in the Deewani Mastani song. An Anarkali with a heavily worked gold set is something that would look amazing on any bride. You may ditch the Persian hat but to emulate this iconic look you must wear the hathphool and Passa.
#5. Anushka Sharma from Ae Dil hai Mushkil
Her bridal look in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil is perfect for both Hindu and Muslim brides. You just need to add or subtract certain accessories to the wedding outfit. The traditional red combined with the more modern salmon and orange colour gave the traditional lehenga a modern twist. If you’re having a traditional Muslim wedding, pair it with a Jhoomar matching your maang tikka and a passa. If you’re having a Hindu wedding, ditch the Jhoomar and add a bindi and a nath.
#6. Katrina Kaif in Baar Baar Dekho
She wore two wedding outfits that were the polar opposite of each other in this movie. But we cannot deny that she looked exquisite in both. One was the flowery, bohemian style lehenga, she wore in the song, ‘Nachde ne Sare’ and the other was the classic red one she wore in the song ‘Kala Chasma’. To emulate the first look, opt for a flowery lehenga and pair it with bohemian style jewellery. To emulate the second one, opt for a classic red with a mix of gold and pair it with traditional or heavyset jewellery.
#7. Katrina Kaif in Bharat
The gown for Katrina’s Christian wedding ceremony in the movie Bharat was designed by Ashley Robello. This is definitely goals if you’re looking for Christian wedding outfits. The lace embroidery goes really well with the sheer look. If you’re planning to take inspiration from this wedding outfit, opt for a sheer neck and shoulders for your wedding dress too! Also, opt for a simple veil, rather than an elaborate one so that the focus stays on the dress.
