A series of high profile weddings have given us fashion goals for this wedding season and more. If you are planning for your own wedding or that for a friend or sister, it may not be a bad idea to pick up some totally doable cues from our most favorite Bollywood Brides.
Here are five fab ideas we loved from Anushka Sharma, Deepika Padukone, Priyanka Chopra and our all-time fav style icon Sonam Kapoor’s gala wedding affairs.
1. The Funky Mehndi Look:
Do away with heavy embellishments and jewellery that weighs you down. Mehndi is a fun affair with plenty of laughter in the air that mingles with the fragrance of fresh mehndi. Since it is a day affair, the modern day bride could go for a floral, light and contemporary lehnga. The colours would remind you of spring and the styling would be totally non fussy with plenty of flowers and sparkly earrings. We loved how both Anushka Sharma in her Sabyasachi dress and Priyanka Chopra in her Abu-Sandeep number defined the new Indian bride, who is in complete control and enjoys every minute of her most cherished event.
2. Red is always a Rage:
After several seasons of experimenting with unusual colors and opting for unconventional looks for all other social events, the Indian bride is back to the color that defines her in so many ways. Red, in all its festive, passionate, joyous glorious avatars is here to rule and how. Whether it was Sonam Kapoor’s sumptuous red lehnga by designer Anuradha Vakil that gave off distinct Punjabi vibes or Priyanka Chopra’s stunning red lehnga designed by Sabyasachi, our favorite stylists have reminded us that you cannot go wrong with a classic. After all, there is no way you can beat red when paired with traditional gold jewelry!
3. Saree Love:
There is something so comforting and so intrinsically stylish about a perfectly draped saree on your wedding day that you cannot go wrong with it. Deepika’s all-gold saree for her Bangalore reception, the saree for her Konkani wedding rituals or Anushka Sharma’s saree for her reception have given us plenty to think about while planning for trousseau shopping. Besides, a beautiful saree always makes for a perfect photo op with the groom is dressed in perfectly structured sherwani or kurta.
4. Vintage Jewellery Treasure:
It may be a good idea to raid that trunk with Grandmother’s jewellery. Going by the current trend, classic, vintage style jewellery is here to roost. We are talking Sindhi matha pattis, Rajwada chokers, raani haar, Thusi, and oversized chand bali inspired earrings in gold, meenakari and cluster pearl detailing.
5. Edgy Fun:
What is a wedding without an evening of pure fun when you can keep all the traditional stuff aside and dress as you please? Whether it is Deepika Padukone’s Frida Kahlo look in a floral Sabyasachi gown and flowers n her hair or Sonam Kapoor in a truly unconventional grey white chevron striped gown by Anamika Khanna, our girls show us how to bend a few rules and set your own fashion goals.
