Gone are the days when a heavy, red dress was the only available option.
Wedding season is never to be taken lightly. As time passes, marriage ceremonies continue to become grander, upping the ante for future brides-to-be and their families. In all of this, the bridal ensemble is one of the most vital aspects to get right, and Bollywood actors seem to nail this every time.
Gone are the days when a heavy, red dress was the only available option. Mainstream actors have begun opting for a change of pace as of late, with pink hues becoming absolute favorites. Here are 6 times Bollywood brides changed the game with their attire:
Wed on July 7, 2015, Mira seems to have set the pace for mainstream weddings to feature differently colored dresses. Her pale pink lehenga that exuded regality was designed by Anamika Khanna. With her hair tied back in a tradition-adhering bun, ornamented with baby’s breath, the young outsider made her mark on the industry in a long-lasting way.
Who can forget the momentous occasion when cricketer Virat Kohli tied the knot with the Band Baaja Baaraat star on December 11, 2017? Decked in a pale pink lehenga that had silver-gold metal thread, pearls, and beads as a part of its intricate embellishments, the actor was a sight to behold in the breathtaking Sabyasachi piece. Her overall look was completed with bridal jewelry handcrafted with syndicate uncut diamonds, pale pink spinel, and baroque Japanese cultured pearls that were a part of the designer’s Heritage Jewelry collection.
While social media is still reeling from the images shared by Kiara and Siddharth Malhotra from their private wedding ceremony on February 7, 2023, designer Manish Malhotra has gone on to shed light on the Shershaah star’s bridal look. Her rose-colored ombre outfit with intricate embroidery has left fans stunned, alongside the Swarvoski crystal embellishments. The entire look is inspired by Roman architecture. As ornaments, the bride was seen wearing ultra-fine hand-cut diamonds and Zambian emeralds.
These gorgeous looks are sure to set the tone for many brides in Pakistan and India, paving a path for experimentation. While you can never go wrong with the classics, the photographs that have dominated social media from each wedding do most of the convincing to opt for newer color palettes.
