Bollywood weddings always inspire and provide a lot of ideas to many soon-to-be married couples to glam up their weddings. Be it the themes, décor ideas, or even the cuisines, almost everyone tend to steal some really cool tips from the weddings of these celebrities. And, when it comes to styling themselves for the D-day, even our soon-to-be brides never forget to look up to these celebrity brides for some tips. Yes, we know that you wish to emulate the panache of all the glamourous brides of Bollywood. Hence, we have fished out some really cool styling tips from the latest bride in the tinsel town, Soha Ali Khan.
So, here is what all soon-to-be brides can learn from this nawabi princess, and raise the glam-quotient on their wedding day.
A wedding affair has plenty of functions and you definitely would be having different outfits for each of them. But, what you must be careful about is not to keep your look similar for any two functions, just like Soha.
She carefully picked from a range of ensembles for all her functions. She donned a stunning gown for her cocktail party. But, she made sure to keep her look traditional for the mehendi ceremony, as she wore a heavily embellished lehenga with a long kurti. Since her wedding was an intimate do, she stuck to flaunting a simple off-white lehenga with an orange dupatta to set the mood right. And, as her reception was again a lavish event, she smartly draped a gold and hot pink lehenga for the evening.
Nowadays, wedding jewellery choices are more dependent on dress designs and latest trends than heavy gold sets. Varuna D Jani, noted jewellery designer explains, “Your choice of jewellery should complement your sense of style. Finally, whatever you choose to wear, carry it off with confidence on the big day.” And, Soha teamed it just right when it came to accessorising her attire with jewellery and makeup.
For her mehendi ceremony, she preferred to club her heavy lehenga with just a pair of chand balis. And, when she flaunted a subtle lehenga on her wedding, she ensured to complement it with heavy traditional jewellery. Be it the traditional passa and the regular maang tikka, or the choker and long necklace, everything looked just perfect with her minimal makeup. Additionally, she made it a point to match the colour of her jewellery with the outfit that she wore in the reception party, rather than just wearing the bling.

Looking at the trends, we can safely say that the mantra, ‘less is more’, is being followed even in the mehendi ceremony of a bride. In fact, the bridal mehendi artist, Rama Singh, suggests, “Full traditional bridal mehendi designs are passé now, and negative spaces allow designs to stand out. So, a fusion of both intricate as well as bigger mehendi designs is the right thing to go for.”
Certainly, the gorgeous bride was well aware of it. That is why, she opted for a simple yet elegant design for her feet, than an entire web of mehendi covering them. The pattern looked more like an intricate weave of foot jewellery.

Our beautiful bride certainly is an epitome of natural beauty. And, it seems that even she is aware of the same. Nowhere in the entire wedding celebrations, could we see her wearing heavy makeup.
In fact, all the brides can just steal Soha’s minimal makeup look for their big day, as it is the ‘in thing’ these days. A light makeup and your beautiful smile is all that is needed to make you look your best on your wedding day.
Gone are the days when just a few colours defined the mood of the Indian weddings. Pinks, mauves, oranges, and many other bright shades like these, are the ones to rock the bridal attire nowadays. So, even you can move away from the traditional hues to something that is more surreal.
In fact, you can take a cue from the ace designer who created Soha’s attire for her mehendi, Ritu Kumar. You will find a major part of the designer’s collection in subtle shades of ivory, off-white, grey, etc., which is truly redefining the Indian bridal fashion. Even for the other functions, our pretty bride added a variety of untraditional colours like bronze, light pink, off-white, orange, gold and hot pink.
Well, Soha certainly proved that it is really very simple to look gorgeous as well as glamorous on your wedding day by keeping the things low-profile in all aspects. Don’t you agree?
