We thrive on Bollywood for wedding clothes, jewellery, sangeet songs, and dances a lot. People seek inspiration from films to make their weddings jazzy and glitzy. Wedding centred movies that have influenced our minds are:
1. Hum Aapke Hain Kaun
Salman’s wedding suit, and Madhuri’s green lehenga and backless choli in the movie are still the persistent theme of every wedding wardrobe. A true wedding epic that is loaded with fantastic wedding songs for every wedding function!
2. Dilwali Dulhaniya Le Jayenge
The movie has given superb songs that are played at marriages till date. Needless to mention, the movie came as an inspiration for Indian men to fast for their brides on ‘Karva Chauth’.
3. Jodhaa Akbar
Exotic and breathtaking jewellery, worn by Aishwarya in the movie, was a blend of royal Rajput and Mughal jewellery designs. The movie sparked the demand of beautiful ‘kundan’ and ‘jadaau’ jewellery, by brides. Not just brides, but men also seek inspiration from Hrithik’s classy yet minimal ornaments.
It is a wonderful heart warming tale that brings on how love blossoms between a girl and a boy during their courtship period. The flick brings to the fore, a pleasant ‘arranged wedding’ system that exists in India.
The movie reminds married couples about their journey from engagement to marriage.
5. Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham
The lehenga that Kareena wears in the song ‘Le jaa…Le jaa’ of the movie, became inspiration for girls, for different wedding ceremonies.
6. Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam
Beautiful ‘mirror chaniya choli’ worn by gorgeous Aishwarya, in the movie, became a huge contribution to Indian weddings. Nimbuda moves of Aishwarya, in a blue ghaghra, were widely accepted in wedding sangeets.
7. Hum Saath-Saath Hain
The movie gave birth to fun, frolic, and an entertaining way to welcome a new bride and introduce her to the rest of the family members, through a musical performance by family members.
8. Band Baaja Baaraat
Indian weddings have undergone drastic changes over the past few years. In the present times, every ritual (Mehndi, Sangeet, Engagement and Reception) of wedding is celebrated in an elaborated manner, and professionals are hired to make weddings a grand affair. This is what this movie shows through a wedding planner, Shruti Kakkar.
