1. Aishwarya Rai Bacchan in Jodha Akbar
The costumes, jewellery, her poise, and grace with which she carried it made Aishwarya a stunning bride in the reel world. Neeta Lulla – the designer created the gorgeous outfits making the best use of elaborate embroideries, rich fabrics, and beadwork. Saffron, emerald, golden brown, copper, burgundy, and deep red were the top colours.

WedFine Tip: Don’t go overboard with your jewellery as you’d not be able to highlight your dress and its intricacies. At the same time, mix rich fabrics to have a unique and stylish wedding.
2. Anushka Sharma in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil
Anushka donned a traditional outfit in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil mixing it with with modern texture with beautiful hues of pink, red, and gold. Her bridal dress stole the show with shimmering gold thread work on her lehenga and long-sleeved choli. Manish Malhotra dressed her in an eclectic mix of trends and she did complete justice. She chose a smokey makeup with kajal played up with different colour palettes and gradations to give the perfect bride cum diva look. She wore a kundan necklace having multiple strings, matching kundan earrings and jhoomar.
WedFine Tip: When doing the Anushka look ensure your hair is tied in a loose bun or a braid. This is because the bridal outfit and makeup is heavy and a simple hairstyle will go a long way to give you a chic look.
3. Deepika Padukone in Chennai Express
We couldn’t have asked for a better bride to adorn the South Indian look. She looked absolutely ravishing in a golden red kanjeevaram silk saree together with a simple maang tikka, intricate coin necklace and kamarband.
WedFine Tip: Since there is a burst of colours in your attire, you can choose to go heavy on the accessories. What’s more, you can even try your hand at bold makeup that highlights the best of your features with the ever so favourite gajra.
4. Alia Bhatt in 2 States
Alia Bhatt too portrayed a South Indian bride in her film and she looked gorgeous. With minimal makeup, she wore bright colours to enhance her overall appearance. Dressed in a red banarasi lehenga with same coloured dupatta paired with contrasting orange brocade blouse had us awestruck. A choker necklace, maang tikka, simple red bindi, bangles, kamar patta and minimalistic embroidery on the outfit sure had us swooning.
WedFine Tip: For all you to be South Indian brides do check out the half saree look with bright hues from head to toe and chunks of gold in the right places to look your splendid best.
5. Kareena Kapoor in 3 Idiots
Kareena simply knows how to rock any outfit. We loved her in a full-sleeved jacket with high slits. The jacket was coupled with a flowing lehenga a look that is rare. The outfit had shades of fiery orange and pink that are difficult to carry off, but Bebo sure ensured to look beautiful from every angle. Also, not to miss are the delicate nath with a polki maang tikka, jhumkis, her rani haar and the polki and ruby necklace that added to the oomph factor.
WedFine Tip: When going for a heavy Anarkali dress and gold jewellery you are sure to look royal and exclusive, however go minimum on the makeup front by opting for nudes.
