In 2023, Bollywood witnessed several celebrity weddings, and many actresses have chosen to ditch the traditional red bridal attire in favour of more minimal and unique colours. Indian film industry has long been a source of inspiration for bridal attire, setting trends with glamorous and awe-inspiring looks.
From introducing pastels to embracing minimalist makeup, Bollywood brides have influenced bridal fashion for years.
Here are some B-Town brides who turned heads with their unconventional wedding outfits:
Parineeti looked ethereal in her golden lehenga, paired with jewelry featuring green stones. She also wore a white varmala and a veil with her husband Raghav Chadha's name written in Hindi.
Alia opted for a hand-dyed ivory organza saree, complemented by a heavy choker necklace, jhumkas, and a matha patti. Her minimal makeup added to her bridal charm.
Kiara donned a pink Manish Malhotra lehenga and accessorized it with ombre pink choodas and crystal kaliras. Her pink bridal attire perfectly matched her elegance.
Athiya chose a pink lehenga for her wedding, featuring silk with zardozi and jaali work. Her veil and dupatta were made of silk organza and took 10,000 hours to create.
Anushka wore a pastel pink lehenga adorned with renaissance embroidery, metal threads, pearls, and beads. Her pastel bridal outfit was a masterpiece.
Natasha looked stunning in her shimmery ivory lehenga, breaking away from the traditional red bridal attire.
These minimal and unconventional bridal looks have set a new benchmark for wedding attire in Bollywood, proving that brides can choose unique colors that reflect their style and personality on their special day.
Though the internet does not seem to be very happy with the new trend, as a user took to it to Twitter (X) to express her view that Bollywood designers seem to have "officially run out of new ideas or themes" when it comes to bridal attire.
The user started the conversation with the circulation of images from the weddings of Parineeti Chopra and Raghav Chadha, stating, "Parineeti borrowed Kiara's jewellery and Alia's wedding lehenga."
Another user remarked, "Kiara's outfit was distinctive, but the others seemed to blend together, lacking the uniqueness we've seen in previous generations with red bridal lehengas."
As trends evolve, it remains to be seen whether designers will respond with new and exciting concepts that captivate audiences once again.
