Do you know how many times daily soap actors get married on-screen? A lot. At first, the actresses marry wearing a long ghungat and pretending to be someone else. Then they marry their on-screen beau happily. Then they re-marry to celebrate their anniversary… or just to add some spice to the mundane plot of the show. Basically, desi soaps and weddings go hand-in-hand. And yes, being obsessed with Hindi serials, we watch all of them with the same enthusiasm. Wait, do you really want us to tell you why? Alright, picture this—beautiful brides, gorgeous jewellery, stunning lehengas, and tonnes of makeup inspo. What’s not to love?
NGL, we will have to give it to our daily soap queens that they slay every time they don a dulhan avatar. Given their love for OTT fashion choices even for an everyday look, we’re not surprised. So, we’re here to give a shoutout to all the TV serial bahus who looked fab as a bride. Honestly, I have already bookmarked most of these looks for my upcoming wedding.
From backless cholis, smokey eye makeup looks, to ivory lehengas, these on-screen dulhans from our fave TV shows are the ultimate #BrideGoals. Take a look:
TBH, we have lost count of the number of times Naira or Seerat aka Shivangi Joshi has become a bride on Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai. But, all we can say is that the lady has nailed her dulhan look every single time. From bright red to pastel lehengas and from tight buns to sleek bob, the actress has donned every bridal style that we can possibly think of.
Well, we have to say, more than her trousseau, we are in love with her jewellery choices that are majorly inspired by the movie Jodha Akhbar. From dramatic nath to OTT matha patti, you can get a lot of inspo if you’re a bride who resonates more with heavy jewellery.
We have just one word for Jennifer Winget aka Maya’s saree collection in Beyhadh—epic. They were chic, classy, and something that we would love to have in our wardrobes. And, the best part is that her bridal look complemented her style perfectly as well. Her outfit was subtle yet striking and her makeup was minimal yet dramatic. We think the dark maroon dupatta paired with her beige lehenga gave her entire look quite a regal touch.
There is hardly any look on Indian television that’s as iconic as Hina Khan’s Bong bride avatar. Ivory lehenga, off-shoulder blouse with balloon sleeves, and multi-layered chokar necklace. Komolika in Kasautii Zindagii Kay told us what an unconventional, new-age bride looks like.
We gotta say, Naagin brides>>other daily soap brides. Mouni Roy looked absolutely ethereal as Shivangi in Naagin. Her bright pink lehenga and Kundan jewellery gave her entire OOTD quite a vibrant look. And those dainty danglers on her dupatta have to be one of the easiest ways to give any outfit a traditional touch.
So ladies, which of these bridal looks are you going to bookmark for your D-Day?
