Your wedding day is a great day to celebrate your heritage and infuse all the cultural colours and traditions. That’s one reason why Bollywood-style weddings have become some popular – they not only allow one to celebrate their culture, they also look pretty stunning too! So if you’re playing around with the idea of a Bollywood-themed big-day let us offer you a touch of modern wedding inspiration – covering everything from chic style to wedding cars…
From vibrant pinks, to green and purples – anything goes when it comes to Bollywood. Infuse your chosen colours throughout your whole wedding design, from the bridesmaid outfits to your flowers and wedding cupcakes. Not only will the colour get everyone in the mood for a party, it will also look fantastic in all your wedding photos – leaving you with amazing memories of your day.
If you’re embracing your culture it makes sense to incorporate elements of a traditional Indian wedding into your special day. Most Bollywood weddings will incorporate some sort of short story into the ceremony, acted out by the bride and groom and their close friends. This of course turns a routine ceremony into something quite spectacular. Just make sure you’ve got a videographer on hand to capture the action!
Gold jewellery and stunning crystal and jewelled designs across your décor is key to creating the right look. Add touches of shine and shimmer to your table centrepieces with gold lanterns, jewelled elephants and shimmery linens.
Bollywood outfits are something else. So intricately designed and beautiful, you’re certain to be the centre of attention. A traditional Sari or Lehenga Choli is the best choice for a Bollywood bride, with plenty of glittering pieces of gold and diamonds. The elaborate zardozi work over pink silk is an ideal dress which should be styled with pan-Indian or international jewellery. The groom, on the other hand, can opt for an elegant Sherwani that reflects the colour scheme of the day.
Just like the rest of the day, your wedding breakfast should be extravagant, offering up a real feast for all your guests. While there’s lots of choice out there it’s best to decide on just one type of cuisine – from Gujarati, to Punjabi, Bengali or South Indian fare – rather than combining a bit of everything.
With the drama of Bollywood, making the right entrance is key. It’s no use turning up by foot, or in any old car – you need something with class and serious style to pull off the whole look. Our Rolls Royce and Chrysler Limos are perhaps the best choice when it comes to luxury wedding car hire the Bollywood bride. Sleek, stylish and modern, they give off that real film star vibe. Our cars can also be dressed with ribbons and bows to reflect your colour scheme – so don’t forget to tell us what you’d like.
