Bollywood leading ladies may be completely bold and beautiful on screen, and rather brave with their choice of movies - but when it comes to picking a wedding outfit, it seems like they still prefer going the traditional route. From Kareena Kapoor to, yes, Anushka Sharma, they've all given us a lot of inspiration in reel life, but their outfit choices for their weddings have been real life inspiration for women planning her big day.
Here are a few Bollywood divas whose wedding pictures we want to look at over and over again.
1. Kareena Kapoor
Kareena Kapoor has been India's sweetheart for nearly two decades now. This gorgeous actress, author and mother of Taimur Ali Khan, finds a new way to reinvent herself and impress just about everyone ever so often. When it came to her wedding outfit, Kareena Kapoor Khan impressed us yet again by going the traditional way. In fact, Kareena wore her mother-in-law, Sharmila Tagore's wedding ghagara, keeping the family tradition alive.
2. Bipasha Basu
Bipasha Basu, as most witnessed on her Insta famous wedding, easily made the happiest bride. This Bengali beauty didn't shy away from posting about her wedding as it was happening. This Bengali beauty chose a bright red lehenga for her wedding ceremony and looked absolutely stunning. She made sure to look like the perfect, traditional Bengali bride by not just wearing red but also finishing her look with a mukut on her head and bindis.
3. Shilpa Shetty
There is just no doubt that Shilpa Shetty makes heads turn in no matter what she wears. All that hard work and yoga definitely reaps some benefits. Shilpa might be a very modern day Indian woman, but for her wedding she opted for a traditional look as well. She wore a red lehenga with a matha patti and gajras and looked absolutely ravishing.
4. Vidya Balan
Vidya Balan is known for her bold choices of films and gorgeous sarees. It was no surprise that even on her wedding day, she opted for a gorgeous red silk saree. She looked like quite the quintessential Indian bride complete with her sindoor and gold jewelry.
5. Genelia Deshmukh
Genelia might have been a part of only so many films that left a mark, but her bubbly screen presence definitely made her a favourite with the masses. This Marathi speaking Konkan beauty looked every bit the Maharashtrian bride when she finally married her longtime beau, Ritesh Deshmukh.
6. Soha Ali Khan
Soha Ali Khan, now the author of an almost best-selling book, didn't shy away from taking a selfie and posting it on Twitter just moments before her wedding. While this may be a very millennial thing to do, her choice of outfit and jewelry was, no points for guessing, quite traditional and classic.

7. Anushka Sharma
How could we possibly end this list without mentioning our current heartthrob and obsession, Anushka Sharma. While enough has been said about Anushka's outfit and how gorgeous she looked, this time perhaps the designer needs a round of applause for creating some of the most ethereal pieces for her.
