We have always been a fan of Bollywood movies as they are a source of inspiration for many many years. They give us so many fashion tips, relationship advice, dance lessons and not to forget so much of wedding inspiration! Here are a few Bollywood movies which have inspired the wedding celebrations in a unique way…
1. Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani
This movie has set trends in many ways for youth. The key highlight was the splendid wedding in Udaipur. It was a dream wedding in a palace of the beautiful city in Rajasthan with opulent decorations and breathtaking outfits. The whole wedding sequence has everything from dance, bar, love to drama; it was all there to be inspired from. After the movie, everyone wanted to get married in Udaipur.
2. Band Baaja Baaraat
PC: Torrent Butler
The name says it all. This movie was all about weddings. The main leads of the movie, Ranveer Singh and Anushka Sharma played the role of wedding planners. Their growth from New Delhi’s Janakpuri to Sainik Farms, was a delight to watch. The movie had beautiful sets and costumes, which made it an entertaining potboiler. And since then, the business of wedding planners & wedding venues has been booming.
PC: Asian Sunday Newspaper
The movie Shaandaar is being called the ‘India’s First Destination Wedding Film’ after its release. The main lead, Shahid Kapoor plays a wedding planner, Alia Bhatt played the sister of the bride. The film involves an exuberant affair, with limos and palaces thrown around generously. And that’s not all – it is being called “India’s first destination wedding film.” Watch out for its release next week.
4. 2 States
This movie was an amazing example of a multicultural wedding. The setting of this movie was really breathtaking and Arjun and Alia look fantastic. The wedding in this movie showed two very different cultures from two very different states who decided to join hands because love triumphs all.
5. Dolly ki Doli
PC: Zee News
This movie portrayed the fun side of weddings. It is a story of a runaway bride, quite practically! The main lead, Sonam Kapoor gets into fake weddings to charm the boys. She played a wife who ends up robbing her husband and in-laws, and all her weddings gave us enough wedding sequences to be inspired from.
6. Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya
PC: Watch Filmy
This entire movie revolved around “Kareena wala designer lehenga!” This movie is also referred as spin-off of DDLJ, as it is a love story between Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt while on the other hand, preparations are going on for Alia’s wedding to someone else.
7. Tanu Weds Manu and Tanu Weds Manu Returns
In the first part, an arranged marriage is set between two odd but very different individuals which is something you can’t miss. Plus, the chemistry between Kangana and Madhavan will make it worth your while. The sequel to the first part includes a wedding preparation, whereas on the other side the marriage of the main lead falls apart. A bit of drama and more of laughter, it lived up to the expectations like its prequel.
