You may love it or maybe not, but you just can’t ignore the favourite bridal colour - red! While most brides today are breaking away from tradition and indulging in newer, fresher colours like blush pinks and elegant beiges, many of our Bollywood brides chose to stick with fiery red. And, of course, they nailed the looks! Here are our favourite Bollywood brides in red bridal lehengas. Girls, this is the only inspiration you need!
1. Bipasha Basu
The newest one to tie the knot, Bipasha wore an elaborate creation by Bollywood’s favourite, Sabyasachi. She chose an all red look with only the second dupatta in beige. The Bengali bride styled her heavily embroidered lehenga with a heavy neck piece, maathapatti, nath and jhumkis and yes, Bipasha did pull it off with elegance. We love the overall embroidery on her blouse, the elbow-length sleeves and the stunning traditional look she put together.Image: Bipasha Basu on Instagram
2. Urmila Matondkar
The timeless beauty recently tied the knot in a gorgeous Manish Malhotra lehenga. She wore a red and pink lehenga from the Regal Threads Banaras collection. We love the Banarasi brocade skirt that looks absolutely classic - it was paired with a baby pink-hued dupatta for the day wedding. Urmila styled it with layers of necklaces, pretty jhumkas and a simple maathapatti. Image: Manish Malhotra05 on Instagram
3. Geeta Basra
Geeta Basra was one hundred percent the filmy bride that we are so used to seeing in the movies. Decked in a heavily-embellished Archana Kochhar red lehenga with gold embroidery, the bride cut a pretty traditional picture. Gorgeous kundan jewellery and traditional patterns of embroidery completed her bridal look.Image: Geeta Basra on Instagram
4. Arpita Khan
Salman's baby sister sure loves the colour red. For both her wedding at the Taj Falaknuma Palace in Hyderabad and her reception in Mandi, the bride chose to wear red. And out of the two looks, we just can’t get over this gorgeous Sabyasachi creation she wore at the reception. The floral motifs on the lehenga and her sequinned dupatta with the signature Sabyasachi border are such a stunner. In fact, paired with a second dupatta, it would make for a showstopper bridal lehenga too!
