10 Ways in Which You Can Include Bollywood in Your Wedding!
If cricket is a religion in India, Bollywood is the daily prayer. From the regal Mughal-e-Azam to the not so regal Badrinath ki Dulhaniya, Bollywood has created a lasting impression on us. Memes, fashion, lifestyle almost everything we do includes a little bit of Bollywood in it, don’t you agree? In fact, our weddings are incomplete without the naach-gaana and drama that Bollywood taught us!
In the 80s and the 90s, Yash Chopra set the tone for elite, larger-than-life sangeets, and weddings while in late 90s Karan Johar’s Kuch Kuch Hota Hai and K3G gave us a glimpse into hyper-privilege weddings with designer clothes, and functions galore! But, while these are ‘too much’ and not really practical, there is no harm in including glimpses of Bollywood in our weddings, right? How, you ask? Just take a look at these 10 couples who did not hesitate once to flaunt their love for Bollywood through their wedding!

Bride Ravina created quite a stir with her wedding lehenga. She wore the same lehenga as Deepika Padukone, complete with the dupatta that read ‘Sada Saubhagyawati Bhava‘. The only difference was that Ravina chose an embellished blouse, unlike Deepika Padukone who wore a simple and subtle blouse.
