India - a country whole-heartedly obsessed with Bollywood! There is probably not one guy in our country who hasn’t tried to copy SRK’s or Ranbir’s style or a girl who has never stood in front of a mirror and said “main apni favourite hun”! So for all those girls out there who could totally relate to what we just said, here are 10 reel life Bollywood brides who are not only legit goals, but who also taught us a thing or two in various ways. And for those who couldn’t relate to it - watch more movies, guys! They’re fun!!!
A confident head-strong woman who fell in love with a guy who was just not her ‘type’. She was career-oriented, he was a chilled out munda. When things did not work out between them, she maintained distance. She didn’t create a scene, she instead maintained her calm and went on with her life. But when she did get to clarify things with her guy, she did not fail to take that opportunity and got married to him! Also, her bridal outfit was serious #goals. No taam-jhaam, and loads of masti!
She looked like a million bucks on her wedding day, in a light pink lehenga with a red dupatta and all. But what we actually learned from her was that you should not get married to a guy if you’re not sure about him. And even if you do, you should talk it out and make the best decision. Meera did not think about the society when she left her husband just a few days after their wedding. She just knew it wouldn’t be a happy marriage, so she left!
OMG, everybody’s favourite Geet! She is no less than an icon for her carefree fashion sense and super bubbly nature. But we also love her for being so relatable! She thought her boyfriend was ‘the one’, they broke up, she got shattered and went into recluse. But once she met the right guy (dreamy, dreamy Aditya!), She pulled herself together and got married to him. She showed us that pulling yourself together after hard times is all you need to be happy!
For all the Geets out there, here’s a little something you can buy to keep yourself reminded that you’re awesome.. This super cute travel mug that says just that! It’s available on Amazon for Rs 1,599.
The sweet and spicy Ananya, a girl from Chennai fell in love with a Punjabi guy from Delhi. They did everything they could to impress each other’s families, just so that they could get married. Ananya taught us that your culture and religion do not decide the course of your love story - you do!
Iconic or what? She is THE best example for brides everywhere. She wanted to keep her parents happy and so she forced herself to get married to the guy they chose. But since she was in love with another guy, she made all possible efforts to convince her dad to let her marry her guy. And you know what? She eventually did! Also, no one can rock unibrows as well as our beloved Kajol does!
Doesn’t DDLJ remind you of Punjab and the fields and wait for it… patiala suits? Go ahead and treat yourself to one. We found this gorgeous piece on Amazon for just Rs 1,089!
If there is one (almost) bride who we should all take lessons from, it is queen, or Rani. She was to get married to a guy who did not value her, and the marriage, eventually, got called off. Like any other girl in her situation, she did break down. But she did not let this incident deter her from moving on with her life and proving that you’ve got to love yourself and find yourself first before you go on finding the love of your life.
We haven’t yet forgotten the happy-go-lucky chic Alizeh from ADHM! She broke up with a guy, met him again, realized she still loved him and got married to him, not to mention how stunning she looks as a bride. After a while, she realizes yet again that she isn’t happy with her husband and wastes no time in letting him know of her feelings. She taught us that no matter how old your relationship or marriage is, if you are not happy, there’s no point staying.
Remember Anushka’s bridal look in the movie? Didn’t you love her passa? Oh well, we found a similar one on Amazon for just Rs 298!
Another huge inspiration, ladies and gentlemen! She went against her family in order to get married to the love of her life, went through a whole lot of messy situations just so that she could be with him. But, nothing deterred her from what she wanted to do, and she eventually managed to get married to her boyfriend.
P.S. You must watch this movie if you haven’t already!
She fell for a guy her father hated the guts of. She was ready to go to any lengths to marry him. Even after he left due to some circumstances, she didn’t leave hope. After many years, when she actually got to know the whereabouts of her lover, she wasted no time in going after him, even though it was her wedding day! And quite honestly, the sight of a fully decked up bride riding a scooter in the valleys of Ladakh was one to behold! Kudos to her for being such a bomb bride!
More than anything, Kavya gave us chirpy bride goals. Nobody has forgotten her dialogue from the movie where she says ‘Shaadi karungi toh Kareena Kapoor wale designer lehenga mein warna nahi’. Also, her dad didn’t want her to get married to the guy she liked, but towards the end of the movie he agreed. Kavya being the pataka that she was, got decked up in a lehenga, completed her look with sexy aviators and stood atop a truck ready to announce her love for her guy! Such bridal entry goals, much wow, don’t you think?
Any pataka bridal entry is incomplete without a killer pair of Ray Bans, so we found the perfect pair for you on Amazon for Rs 4,699! Swag comes at a price, after all!
