When Bollywood and TV divas became brides, they turned heads and created many trends for the brides-to-be. It’s not just with their on-screen roles that these divas make headlines, their off-screen attires and wedding day jewellery is equally headline-worthy.
Let’s take a look at some of our favourite TV and Bollywood divas who wore remarkable jewellery on their wedding day and gave us major fashion goals.
If there is one actress who appeared to have descended from heaven and looked every bit of royal and divine like a goddess on her D-day, it has to be Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. winning the title of ‘Miss World’ wasn’t enough, Ash stole a million hearts with her mesmerising look on her wedding day. The Bachchan bahu looked absolutely ravishing in a royal golden Kanjeevaram saree and decked with exquisite gems and stones. Aishwarya stuck to heavy gold, Kundan and emeralds to complete her wedding day look. Aishwarya wore a grand and elaborate diamond and gold haar and followed it up with two layers of kundan necklaces with a huge emerald attached to it at the centre. All the haars together looked like a royal raani-haar. Not to be missed is her magnificent kundan, diamond and gold embroidered three chains matha patti. Her dangling diamond and gold earrings totally stole the show.
We are sure when Anushka Sharma walked down the aisle, wearing that every bit of dreamy and princess-y, pale pink lehenga designed by Sabyasachi Mukherjee. The Sharma girl decided to play down low with her make-up and let her bridal lehenga and jewellery do all the talking. Anushka wore spectacular matha patti, magnificent haar and huge earrings all made with uncut diamonds, pale pink spinel, Japanese cultured pearls. Her jewellery for her wedding day was sourced from Sabyasachi Heritage Jewellery Collection.
Now, Esha might not have had a hit run at the box office, but her wedding day look was a total blockbuster. Esha’s temple style, traditional jewellery ticked all the right boxes. The Deol girl opted for conventional, heavy gold jewellery but added ruby, emerald and pearls to give it a contemporary touch. Her matha patti was made of gold and also with beautiful ruby and gems to make it match with her bridal lehenga.
For her wedding, Shilpa Shetty went all out and wore some over-the-top jewellery, which we don’t mind at all. The Dhadkan girl wore a magnanimous gold haar embedded with diamonds and emeralds. She followed it up with two haars made with gold, kundan and emerald. She also had a traditional matha patti made with diamond, rubies and emeralds to give her wedding day look a slightly southern vibe.
Kareena looked every bit of royal, like a begum on her D- day. Bebo got married to Saif by keeping up the tradition and wearing Sharmila Tagore’s rust-coloured sharara. Kareena also wore a royal maang teeka, a jhoomar, a huge raani haar, all made in gold, kundan and ruby. Doesn’t she look magnificent?
Pataudi family’s darling daughter, Soha, nailed her wedding day look completely. She wore a traditional gold and kundan jhoomar/passa, a kundan necklace embedded with diamonds, a layered emerald neckpiece, golden nose ring and bangles. She does look every bit of a royal highness, doesn’t she?
Another actress who completely wowed us with her wedding day look and took us back to the Mughal era has to be Dia Mirza. The diva looked striking in traditional jewellery which comprised of a passa/jhoomar, bangles, maang teeka, layered haar and jhumkas. Dia’s golden passa and maang teeka embedded with rubies and precious stones, her gold, pearl and emerald embedded necklace completely stole the show on her wedding day.
Bollywood actress Geeta Basra went completely traditional for her wedding day look and absolutely rocked it. The diva wore a red and golden coloured lehenga designed by Archana Kochhar and paired it up with heavy diamond and kundan jewellery by Narayan jewellers.
Sagarika Ghatge emerged as a fashion icon with her effortless look at her wedding. Ghatge wore a blood-red saree and paired it up with oxidised silver jewellery to emerge as a showstopper. She also wore golden and green bangles to complete the look. The jewellery accentuated her outfit and also inspired us to believe in less is more.
From the décor, bridal lehenga to the wedding day jewellery; everything about Amrita Puri’s wedding day gave us major wedding goals. Her soft kaliree, chooda, huge gold and kundan neckpiece, ruby embedded kundan jhumkas and gold and kundan maang teeka; everything looked straight out of a royal wedding. Doesn’t her wedding look like the stuff dreams are made of?
Asin got married in two traditional ceremonies, one – a Christian wedding and the other was a traditional Hindu wedding. The ‘Ghajini’ girl took everyone’s breath away with her understated yet gorgeous wedding lehenga and her sparkling polki jewellery. Asin wore a stunning polki necklace embedded with diamond and red emeralds and completed the look with a matching maang teeka and jhumkas.
She did take a long time to tie the knot, but once she did, there was no other bride who could have looked as breathtakingly beautiful as Bipasha Basu did on her wedding day. On her wedding day, Bipasha went all out and wore a royal Rajashthani jadau and polki jewellery. The Bong beauty wore a kundan and polki neckpiece which was studded with green emeralds, accentuating maang teeka, nose ring with a string and jhumkas. Not to miss are her signature haath phools studded with pearls, gold and polki and the traditional mukut.
One of the cutest star wives, Genelia D’Souza, opted for a traditional Maharashtrian attire and jewellery on her wedding day. The bubbly diva looked beautiful in a heavy kundan neckpiece adorned with red emeralds. She completed her Marathi mulgi look by wearing a pearl mundavalya, a conventional kundan and pearl nath, kamarbandh and bangles.
Another actress who surprised us with her fabulous wedding attire and choice of jewellery on her wedding day was Ayesha Takia. The gorgeous actress wore some splendid diamond jewellery without mixing it with any other stone or gems. And needless to say, we all loved her all sparkly look, didn’t we?
The vivacious Gul Panag brought alive streaks of her attitude and spirit with her astonishing jewellery choice on her wedding day. If reaching her own venue on a bike wasn’t enough, Gul wore a feisty gold and green emerald studded jewellery which completely complemented her pink wedding attire. Even though she wore minimalist jewellery, the colour contrast in her jewellery made for a perfect sassy bride look. PS: Don’t miss that dimpled smile and sunglasses.
TV’s darling daughter, Sanaya Irani, emerged as an absolute head-turner on her wedding day. Irani wore a mighty neckpiece made with uncut polki in golden framings. The matching earrings too gained a lot of attention. She chose to go with slightly less exquisite nath, maang teeka and mangalsutra to attain that perfect balance.
Small screen’s favourite, Drashti Dhami’s look on her wedding day deserved an award as much as her acting does. Drashti wore uncut diamond and polki neckpiece, earrings, nath and maang-teeka on her wedding day and looked majestic in them. See it for yourself!
Mesmerising beauty, Aamna Sharif, looked even more beautiful on her wedding day. She chose to go for a regal look by contrasting all her jewellery with her wedding attire. She opted for kundan and white pearl for her remarkable neckpiece, maang-teeka and earrings. Bride jewellery goals, anybody?
There’s no denying that the Hindi small screen audience just loves Divyanka. And there’s no argument over the fact that they loved her even more on her wedding day. Divyanka aced her complete wedding lookbook by opting for some grand wedding attire and jewellery. The gorgeous bride chose diamond and gold jewellery for her wedding day look. Not only was her choice contemporary and a no-brainer, it also uplifted her entire wedding lehenga.
Der aaye par durust aaye! This is what we have to say about Aashka’s wedding ceremony. The Kkusum girl opted for some heavy, royal gold and diamond jewellery inspired by Padmaavat. However, what caught our attention was her sleek and designer mangalsutra by Orra.

With minimalist jewellery, Kishwer Merchant’s magnificent jewellery stole our hearts at the wedding. The beautiful bride wore a no-fuss polki and kundan choker and matching earrings. Her chooda is what caught our eyes first. With such elegant and minimalist jewellery, Kishwer made us all believe that a bride doesn’t need to be all decked up to look beautiful on her D-day.
One of the most talked about weddings of the small screen was that of Kratika Sengar with Nikitin Dheer. Kratika looked royal and majestic in her bridal trousseau. Her regal jewellery hogged all the limelight at her wedding. Kratika wore kundan jewellery seated in gold and adorned with gems and stones. Her beautiful nath and matha patti grabbed many eyeballs and have been a favourite with many brides ever since.
Another wedding that became talk of the town was that of Nigaar Khan, more so, because of her choice of jewellery and wedding outfit. While many brides shy away from wearing white on their wedding day, Nigaar, chose to do exactly that. Her white and maroon coloured wedding outfit was paired well with her heavy gold and diamond jewellery. Her glowing gold passa and huge neckpiece made us skip a heartbeat.
One of the most beautiful and gorgeous ladies of small screen, Sanjeeda Sheikh, won our hearts with her wedding attire and jewellery. The diva wore a striking green sharara and paired it up with contrasting all diamond jewellery. To match it with the outfit, Sheikh, opted for green emeralds embedded in the diamond.
