Bollywood gives us major life goals - right from relationship goals to fashion goals and of course, wedding goals too. Wedding scenes and brides in Bollywood movies give us major inspiration and taking an idea or two from these movies surely helps in wedding planning. Here are a few Bollywood movies for your wedding inspiration which will make you want to tie the knot NOW!
1. The Temple Wedding In 2 States
It was surely one of the first times we saw a wedding take place inside a temple and without a doubt, this wedding scene from 2 States is remembered by all. Right from the venue to the chanting of the mantras and jingling bells, this was a beautiful wedding shot.
2. The Day Engagement In Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara
Inspiration to have a vintage themed engagement party in a lawn area is what the last scene from Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara gave us. Not to forget the pond and the floral swing on which Hrithik and Katrina gave us major #WeddingInspiration.
3. The Destination Wedding In Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani
This was probably the first time a full-blown destination wedding was shown in Bollywood and we are so happy this happened. With beautiful locations and gorgeous outfits, this movie definitely showed us what dream weddings are made of.
4. The Bride’s Entry On A Truck In Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania
Did anyone ever imagine a bride entering on a truck? Definitely NOT! Until we saw Alia Bhatt doing the same in Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania. This scene surely inspired many brides to move away from the cliched entries under the phoolon ki chaadar and opt for a different and grand entry instead!

Weddings don’t have to always be about the bling factor. We all remember the famous ‘Punjabi wedding song’ from Hasee Toh Phasee and this song has some awesome decor ideas for us to take a cue from. Right from the hanging lights to the yellow fabric and cage decor, we loved it all!
6. Joote Do Paise Lo In Hum Aapke Hain Kaun
Nobody can forget the famous, ‘Joote do paise lo’ song from Hum Aapke Hain Kaun. This song made the ‘stealing the groom’s shoes’ concept so much more fun!
7. The Fun Wedding Planners In Band Baaja Baaraat
Nobody knew much about the wedding planning business until Band Baaja Baaraat released. This movie gave many people a push to get into the wedding planning industry and this film also introduced us to the concept of hiring planners to organise a wedding.
8. The Royal Rajput Bride In Jodhaa Akbar
Every girl wants to look like Aishwarya Rai Bachchan as a bride after watching her in Jodhaa Akbar. The royal Rajput bride’s jadau neckpieces, haath phools, head gear and kundan jewellery has given all the brides inspiration and help when they have to zero down to their wedding set.

The ‘G-U-J-J-U’ song followed by ‘Mahi Ve’ gave all of us the idea of having family performances on the sangeet/ engagement night! How fun are those?!
10. The Pheras At The Ghaat In Guru
Do you remember the scene from Guru in which Aishwarya and Abhishek are getting married? They had a simple and beautiful wedding ceremony at a ghaat. Not many people have taken a cue from this idea but the location and scene were definitely beautiful.

11. The Purple Bridal Lehenga In Dolly Ki Doli
Who said that a bride only has to wear reds and pinks for her wedding functions?! Sonam Kapoor in Dolly Ki Doli gave us major #FashionGoals when she wore a unique purple coloured lehenga. This colour will definitely make any bride stand out and is a fun, new colour for brides to carry off. Plus, Sonam Kapoor inspired us once again with her dressing sense by having the sleeves of her blouse till her elbows. She definitely set new trends with this style.
12. Simple Makeup And Pretty Hair In Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania
Alia Bhatt in a fuss-free neon green and pink lehenga in Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania surely looked awesome. She carried off this look with a sweet hairstyle and minimalistic makeup. Her understated makeup was the reason she gained all the brownie points.
13. The Bachelor Party In Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara
The term “bachelors’ party” was taken to a whole new level after it was shown in Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara. It showed all of us how one definitely needs to have a bachelors’ party with his/ her friends before getting married. It also warned us to never gatecrash our fiancé’s pre-wedding holiday or party! *wink*
14. Bridesmaid Duties In Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani
Apart from making us drool over a beautiful wedding, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani also gave us major inspiration on how to dress up for our bestie’s wedding. It also made us aware of all the duties that a bridesmaid has on her bestie’s wedding.
15. Deepika Padukone In Ram Leela And Bajirao Mastani
We cannot miss our favourite Deepika Padukone. She inspires us in every possible way, especially when it comes to dressing up for weddings. In the song ‘Lahu Munh Lag Gaya’ from Ram Leela, she has given a new touch to the traditional banarsi and bandhani fabric by combining them both with a velvet blouse and adding colours like red, white and black. In one of the Bajirao Mastani posters, she gave us ideas on how to carry off the double dupatta trend by making one heavier and keeping the other one simple.
