So here’s a list of the most beautiful brides that we have seen on-screen recently. Go ahead and steal unapologetically from these looks, after all, Bollywood is here to inspire us in almost all walks of our lives.
Anushka Sharma in Sultan & Ae Dil Hai Mushkil
There is a lot to get inspired by Anushka Sharma’s bridal look from her last two releases — Sultan and Ae Dil Hai Mushkil.
For starters, take a look at the gorgeous ivory colored handcrafted traditional chikankari ensemble embellished with the bespoke technique of zardozi, including elements of kundan, gota, dabka and naqshi that Anushka wore for Sultan.
The ensemble, which is a part of Diva’ni’s 'Lafz' collection, is simple, regal and traditional – a perfect outfit if you wish to turn up for your wedding in a Mughal style and yet keep it subtle.
Anushka’s other bridal look that will give you serious bridal inspo is the one from her recently released Ae Dil Hai Mushkil.
Anushka simply looked ethereal in the salmon pink and peach Manish Malthora lehenga, which weighed about 17 kg. The key element of this stunning look is the long trail dupatta draped over the head. It is sure to give you a queen like feel on your big day.
Saiyami Kher in Mirzya
If royal red is something that appeals the most to your taste buds then you have to take a look at Saiyami Kher’s Rajputana bridal avatar that she donned for her recent release Mirzya.
Sporting a Rajput style number by designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee, Saiyami shows us how to strike a perfect balance between bohemian and traditional with pizzazz.
Sonam Kapoor in Dolly Ki Doli
The only reason you should watch this film is to get some bridal style inspo from Bollywood’s very own high priestess of fashion – Sonam Kapoor.
The fashionista is playing a con bride in the film and has donned 16 bridal attires throughout the film.
From the badass bride sporting leather jackets with her traditional lehenga to an eclectic bride in a Manish Arora couture lehenga, from shararas to Punjabi bridal salwar kameez… there is plenty to steal from Sonam Kapoor’s resplendent looks from this film.
Kangana Ranaut In Tanu Weds Manu Returns
Want to keep your bridal look traditional yet break the stereotype?
Well, take a cue from Kangana Ranaut, who looked breathtakingly beautiful in a gorgeous green lehenga choli that she sported for her film Tanu Weds Manu Returns.
Breaking away from the clichéd shades of red, her green bridal ensemble with intricate kasba embroidery was a breath of fresh air. Right from that sheer dupatta over her head to those stunning baubles, everything about her look was simply out of this world.
Alia Bhatt in 2 States
The gorgeous Alia Bhatt gave an interesting twist to her South Indian bridal look in the movie two states.
While most South Indian brides usually wear the traditional Kanjeevaram saree for their wedding, Alia surprised everyone with her red half saree look.
While the movie deals with inter-caste marriage, Alia’s outfit perfectly complemented the North meets South theme of the film.
Do take notes, if your wedding is also in the same zone.
Kareena Kapoor in 3 Idiots
Another reel bridal look worthy of drawing inspiration from is Kareena Kapoor Khan’s quintessential Indian bridal look from 3 Idiots.
Her heavy rust, orange and pink number from the house of Manish Malhotra is undoubtedly every bride’s dream.
