Bollywood trends are becoming popular. With warm color palettes, couples are looking for ways to keep their wedding experiences romantic, colorful and tasteful. This cultural influence lends its own unique charm to weddings and celebrations: think sundresses, reciting your vows in a garden and pretty pastel colors.
- Use color to convey the message of “celebration”
- Stay true to your style and customs
Good Example of A Bollywood Celebration:
Bollywood beauty Shilpa Shetty has taken on the role of a lifetime– that of wife to the man she loves, Raj Kundra. On November 22, 2009, less than one month after the couple’s official engagement ceremony, the groom– dressed in a gold and scarlet sherwani by Shantanu and Nikhil– rode through the streets in a horse-drawn chariot toward the Bawa Villa in Khandala, where the 2007 Celebrity Big Brother winner waited to exchange wedding vows.
The joy of the couple’s November 21st sangeet, in which the groom danced to a Michael Jackson tune, spilled over onto the pair’s wedding day, when the bride donned a crimson and burgundy saree by designer Tarun Tahilani for the Manzalorean ceremony.
“Kavita Ramdya’s Bollywood Weddings is a masterful study rich with insights into how cultures meet, mix, and merge in our era of airplanes and the Internet… Full of surprises, not least the fact that the matchmaker here is the Bollywood film, which has just enough of both America and India in it to keep everyone at these weddings dancing.”
