Indian cinema has been at the heart of some of the most popular fashion trends that have sparked off in the country. Think Kajol’s ombre sarees in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai or Deepika Padukone’s Aztec print dresses in Cocktail that went on to become a rage with the fashion conscious.
So it is not surprising that even the wedding dresses in India are inspired by what the Bollywood divas don during weddings – be it in real life or reel life. In case you are gearing up for your wedding and want to look towards the movies for ideas, here is a look at some spectacular Bollywood inspired bridal dresses.
Dia Mirza wore a gorgeous blue lehenga-choli by Anita Dongre for her sangeet ceremony. We think that the stunning lehenga with exquisite gota-patti embroidery could actually make for a great wedding outfit. Sure, the colour is not a traditional red or maroon, but blue is also a colour that photographs well.
Don’t take our word; take a look at how mesmerising Dia Mirza looked at her wedding! Bollywood divas are known for making some bold choices when it comes to fashion, so it is but natural that Bollywood inspired wedding dresses also are unconventional in one way or another! If the dress has floored you too, then go ahead and buy it here!
While Shilpa Shetty wore an elaborate traditional red lehenga for her wedding ceremony, she chose a lavish, glimmering figure hugging pre-draped saree for the reception, designed by Tarun Tahiliani.
Pre-draped sarees like these make for a great option for the sangeet or the reception since these ceremonies are not tied down by traditional rules when it comes to attire. Fusion outfits like pre-draped sarees have a contemporary appeal. A Bollywood inspired bridal dress like this saree almost looks like a luxurious gown and has the ability to leave the onlookers spellbound. Like it? Then take a look at a similar pre-draped saree we have on offer that will be perfect for a cocktail party after the wedding or the reception itself.
Aishwarya Rai looked resplendent on her wedding day in a golden kanjeevaram saree designed by Neeta Lulla. If it is Bollywood inspired bridal dresses that you are looking for, then Aishwarya Rai’s wedding dress is as close to a conventional wedding look that you can get.
A rich saree, strands of polka jewellery and floral adornments on the hair is what you need to nail this look. This splendid Raakesh Agarvwal saree is what we would recommend for a look like Aishwarya’s and look ravishing on your wedding day.
Putting together a Bollywood inspired wedding dress is no rocket science. You do not need the exact same pieces to achieve a look similar to what your favourite celebrity wore. All you need to do is to deconstruct the look so that you can put together all the elements in the ensemble and look like a princess on your wedding day.
