    A bride-to-be spends so much time and effort in planning her look for one of the most important days of her life. The purpose is to look stunning, unique and royal at the same time. To achieve this, many take cues from models, celebrities and fashion influencers, after all, they are the biggest trendsetters!

    While we have had a lot of conversation around Anushka Sharma, Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra’s bridal look, we somehow forgot how amazing some of them looked as south Indian brides in a couple of films. Let’s admit it we all have thought at some point in your lives that how gorgeous and chic the brides from down south look on their wedding days. Then why not take some inspiration and plan our bridal look accordingly! 

    Deepika Padukone 


    Deepika Padukone is one of the most versatile stars of the film industry. Be it a Rajputana bride or a south Indian dulhan, she nails every look! 

    Wedding Outfit 

    When it comes to her wedding outfit in Chennai Express, the actress sported a gold-red Kanjeevaram silk saree. It had the most beautiful work with almost plain border. The balance helped the look to come out more beautifully. She paired her saree with a simple red blouse that had a golden border. 

    Wedding Jewellery 

    She enhanced her look with the most stunning jewellery. Most of the pieces were multilayered coin neckpieces. Deepika is blessed with a long neck, therefore the small and the long pieces created beautiful appearance. However, if you have a small frame, try going just with the long pieces. 

    Wedding Hair & Makeup 

    If you’re not into those huge hair buns, opt for simple chignon and decorate it with white gajra, just like Deepika. For makeup, go bold with eye makeup. And remember, the defined your brows the better you’re likely to look! 

    Anushka Sharma 


    She makes every outfit look like it has been made especially for her. Anushka Sharma is a true fashionista, as she doesn’t shy away from experimenting and hence, putting her best foot forward!

    We are absolutely in love with Anushka’s maang tikka. The intricate white beading is sleek and classy. She kept her earrings medium-sized and opted for statement neckpieces.

    With such a heavy look, she created balance with the minimalistic makeup. She used nude lipstick with a pink undertone and completed her appearance with well-done eyes. 

    Alia Bhatt

    Alia Bhatt turned a south Indian bride for her film 2 States, also starring-Arjun Kapoor. While the film received much love, it was also her indo-western looks throughout the film that won hearts. If you are also about to have a day wedding, you can totally go with her bridal look. Her outfit, which is a beautiful crimson Benarasi lehenga was designed by Manish Malhotra. The bridal glam is a perfect example of how you can bring different elements, including a vermillion brocade lehenga skirt, an orange silk blouse with zardozi work and a matching red dupatta together.

    Since her outfit and ornaments were not too heavy, the actor’s bright makeup came out beautifully. She opted for red lipstick and gold eye makeup. 

    Shraddha Kapoor


    The actress with a million-dollar smile, Shraddha Kapoor is one of the top stars of the industry. She is known for being gorgeous and multi-talented. 

    Wedding Outfit 

    The actress has hardly been seen as a bride in films. However, when she appeared as a south Indian dulhal in Gori Tere Pyaar Mein even for a cameo role, she left a lasting impression. Her dress was not completely red but it had hues of orange, mustard yellow and gold. If you don’t want to do red for your wedding, you can opt for these colours. South Indian outfits are known to have rich work. But, we like how Shraddha’s georgette dupatta helped her to strike a balance.
