When it comes to planning things for an Indian wedding, Bollywood has always been one big source of inspiration. And when you as a bride or a groom look up to the celebs to decide what to wear, then why can’t your mom! After all, it is a special day of her life too and she needs to get dressed up to the nines for this day.
So to ease out your job of choosing the most stylish and graceful outfit for your mother, we bring to you the stunning ramp looks of these 6 yesteryear divas!
If your mother is not a big fan of heavily embroidered or embellished outfits, then ‘Dream Girl’ Hema Malini’s saree that she wore while walking the ramp at IIJW 2011, is just perfect for her. It was a transparent royal blue saree, which had a red and golden border and minimal embroidery in same colours. Another brilliant option can be the Shyamal & Bhumika brocade-velvet saree that the actress wore at Lakme Fashion Week 2011. The combination of light handwoven brocade work and velvet fabric simply gives it royal look- all that you need to make your mom look the most elegant lady at your wedding!
To make your mom stand out from the crowd, here is one beautiful saree that you can steal from the lady from Bollywood’s royal family, Jaya Bachchan. She walked the ramp for her favourite designer duo Abu Jani & Sandeep Khosla in a lavish red saree that had a heavy golden border. The colours are just perfect to celebrate the occasion, right? If comfortable clothing is your mother’s major concern at your wedding, then you can go for the super-comfy kurta and salwar that Jaya Bachchan wore while she walked the ramp for Shabana Azmi’s NGO, Mijwan. Everything from the colour, trims and silhouette of this outfit exhibit nothing but grace, and your mom would certainly love to own one such piece.
If you are the prince/princess of the day, then your mother certainly is the queen. And, who better than the Begum of Bollywood can be there to take style inspiration from and make you mom look like one! And our favourite pick is this stunning coral jacket-saree (left) that Sharmila Tagore wore for the designer duo Ashima-Leena at PCJ Delhi Couture Week back in 2012. The combination of heavy silver brocade work on the saree and the matching jacket with sheer sleeves is all that your mother needs to look like the most important lady of your life! Another ramp moment of the lady that we fell in love with was when she wore a lehenga teamed up with a kurta and a jacket (right), a creation again by Ashima-Leena.

The evergreen actress Rekha’s style is as charming as the lady herself. And, so are the silk sarees that she is mostly seen wearing. So taking inspiration from this diva, gift your mother one such timeless piece. You can simply steal this diva’s ramp look where she wore a beautiful golden saree. While the golden colour will rightly represent the grandeur of your big fat wedding, silk will add a touch of sophistication to your mother’s overall look.

The ever-charming and graceful Shabana Azmi was totally a stunner as she walked the ramp for Mandira Bedi at the Lakme Fashion Week Summer-Resort 2015. The classic Banarasi saree teamed up with modern touch of gold and brocade is apt to recreate the vintage magic in today’s time. Another beautiful piece that your mom will certainly fall in love with is the gorgeous red and golden saree donned by the veteran actress at CPAA Fevicol Fashion Show. When you get one such saree for your mother, make sure the blouse has same neckline and sleeves!
Another super-comfy yet high-on-style outfit that you can take for your mother is the gorgeous kaftan that the beautiful actress Poonam Dhillon donned as she walked the ramp for a charity show. While the loose fit of the outfit will let your mother move freely in the wedding, the drape and graceful fabric will add more charm to her look.
