I think we can all agree that Bollywood movies have been the number one source of wedding outfit inspiration since times immemorial. Besides the glitz, glamour, and drama, the intricate outfit details, fresh prints, and elegant embroidery is what catches the eye. We have curated a list of 15 such movies that have showcased the best of the best!
  • Kareena Kapoor in Veere Di Wedding

    A period drama, this movie was probably one of the first to showcase royal Indianwear attire at it's best. Designer Neeta Lulla delicately curated each and every piece worn by Aishwarya, further paired with layered necklaces, statement maang tikkas, and chunky kada bracelets.
