Gone are the days when brides looked all coy when entering the wedding venue, under a decorative phoolon ki chaadar, with Din Shagna Da playing in the background. Do you remember Bipasha Basu’s rocking entry to her mandap, the one where she was seen happily dancing to dhol beats, truly enjoying herself on her special day?! Or better still, Gul Panag’s bomb bridal entry on a bullet when she got married? Clearly brides now want to make an entry as big as grooms do! Here is a comprehensive list of some of the best bridal entry ideas that we got from real brides this year. Check ‘em out!
A starry-eyed bride walking hand-in-hand with her dearest hubby, surrounded by sparkles on both sides. It’s romantic, not too loud and dramatic, and it’s like a nice shout out to the world that you’ve found your matey.
Also, don’t you just love her gorgeous velvet Sabyasachi lehenga? If you want something similar to this at a steal, then buy this beautiful purple dori work lehenga on Amazon for just Rs 3,699!
Neil Nitin Mukesh and Rukmini Sahay’s wedding was royalty redefined in every possible way, and the bride’s entry to the venue was proof enough of that. Rukmini entered elegantly seated on a throne-on-wheels kinda sofa, decorated with flowers and leaves. It was a sight to behold!
This bride made a simple yet pretty entry, with her path enlightened with thousands of diyas. And not just any diyas, one that were held by beautifully dressed women on their heads. It looks surreal, doesn’t it?
If you are as much in love with this bride’s choker just as we are, then buy a similar one priced at Rs 649 (on sale!) on Amazon.
A chariot is the only ride that fit for a princess, and no girl is less than a princess on her wedding day, right? This pretty bride picked a gorgeously decorated chariot to enter her wedding venue, and we have to say, she left us stunned!
Her red and gold kaliras are giving us the feels. Are they doing the same for you? Then buy them on Amazon for just Rs 1,950.
Are you a bride-to-be who is super famous for her swag and style? Then your bridal entry should be a total stunner. Take some inspiration from this rocking bride who chose to enter her own shaadi in a jeep (which BTW she drove herself) Now, that is what we call banno ka swagger!
Up your style game on your shaadi with these awesome Ray Ban sunnies, which are available on Amazon for just Rs 7,590.
Aww! We just can’t get over how well colour-coordinated this whole scene is. The bride’s lehenga, the colour of her brothers’ pagdis and the flowers in the overhead shed are all of the same baby pink colour. Oh, and the leaves and flowers weaved together just give out such a nice vibe, don’t you think?
They have never let anything hurt you, they have been your bodyguards and you are and WILL always be their little doll. Yes, we are talking about your dearest brothers. For the laadli sister, this is the perfect way to enter the wedding venue, perched in a palki on her brother's’ shoulders. A sight to behold, really!
Here is a beautiful pink and golden lehenga which we think you will love. Plus, it’s just for Rs 2,539 on Amazon! Double yay!
If walking down the aisle is too mainstream for you, then this is the way to go - arrive in style, perched on a boat! Wait, WHAT? It is true, this gorgeous bride right here chose to do just that and oh boy, did she look stunning!
This is hands down,our favourite bridal entry idea ever. This beautiful angel in blue decided to walk down the aisle with the two people who taught her how to take her first baby steps - her parents. Nothing gets better than this!
This bride chose a stunning aqua blue lehenga for her wedding, and a quirky kundan choker with pink beads. Pick a similar one for yourself at Nykaa, priced at just Rs 1.349.
