With more than a thousand movies being released in a year, the biggest influencer of style in India is most undoubtedly Bollywood. Screen icons also turn into fashion icons and their off-screen fashion choices become style statements in themselves.
It is not surprising that the fashion conscious also look upto the movie stars’ sartorial choices when it comes to wedding fashion as well. Bollywood wedding dresses, be it from reel life or real life are dominant forces when people choose their wedding outfits.
So we decided to feature the best Bollywood wedding photographs of all time so that you can ogle away at the gorgeous couples and the Bollywood wedding dresses to your heart’s content.
Madhuri Dixit has been married umpteen number of times on screen and has donned the most lavish of Bollywood wedding dresses on screen. But when it came to her real life wedding, she chose to go the simple and elegant route.
While her wedding ceremony was a private affair, the couple did throw a grand reception where she wore a classy copper and peach lehenga by Reza Shariffi. An unconventional choice, but that is not to say we did not like the look. The embellished choli, matching jewellery and minimal makeup completed her look perfectly. We love the glow and warmth in this picture and for that reason decided that this photograph should go into our list!
The Shilpa Shetty-Raj Kundra wedding received ample publicity despite it being a much closed affair. The pictures from their wedding are amongst the most remembered pictures from celebrity weddings while her dress is considered to be among the best Bollywood wedding dresses.
For the wedding ceremony, Shilpa wore a red Tarun Tahiliani saree that was embellished with Swarovski crystals. The groom wore a matching Shantanu and Nikhil brocade sherwani and the couple looked picture perfect together!
We think that Gul Panag’s wedding photographs should feature in the best Bollywood wedding photos of all times for the quirkiness and spunk they exude. Gul gave the traditional heavy Bollywood wedding dresses a miss and chose a sprightly pink salwar-kameez.
What makes the pictures special is the out of ordinary way in which the couple arrived to the venue- on a motorbike, complete with Aviators! We love the fact that they showed off their passion for bikes proudly at the wedding and the pictures just reflect that!
