Well, it turns out those movies have a lasting effect. We not only remember them fondly as we grow older, but when it comes to important times of our life- like our weddings- we naturally want to recreate them.
And now, with the latest hindi movies giving us exciting new #ShaadiGoals, we’ve put together this list of 5 inspiration-worthy Bollywood wedding scenes and songs.
1. Haldi Goals Like Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety
Celebrating a beautiful friendship, this song tells the story of an emotional Sonu during his childhood friend’s wedding.
From Titu’s family members smearing Haldi all over Sonu’s face, to the ecstatic Baraat wala dance between the brothers, this Bollywood bromance flick has the coolest wedding scenes that you can steal.
Check out the song “Tera Yaar Hu Mai.” It’ll give you some groom-to-be inspiration and the groomsmen (and friends) can take notes, too!
2. Make It “Crazy” Memorable
Looking for some whacky and hilarious entertainment at your wedding? Don’t forget to check out Shubh Mangal Savdhan’s crazy wedding scenes by duo Ayushmann and Bhumi.
While Haridwar is at their destination wedding location, the movie captures some of the best pre-wedding moments, including a funny couple’s photoshoot.
It’ll inspire you to be a little silly, not take things too seriously and try new things!
3. Bachelorette With A Twist 😉
Imagine what it’s like to be whisked away the night before your wedding… by your girlfriends!
Now, that’s how you throw a rockstar bachelorette.
And don’t worry, we’ll keep it a secret that this idea comes from the Shandaar’s Gulabo song (starring Shahid-Alia!).
Even though this movie wasn’t a sweeping success, you can pick up some interesting tips from the film’s grand wedding showcase.
4. A Surprise Cocktail Performance
Talking about modern day Indian weddings, we can’t leave Aditi’s Udaipur destination wedding from the movie Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani from our list.
With a camaraderie to die for, Deepika Padukone’s bridesmaid speech is the most adorable scene to steal from this Bollywood blockbuster.
And, as a bonus:
If you too have an international dost coming to attend your wedding, keep his entrance as a welcoming surprise like Ranbir Kapoor’s Badtameez Dil…
5. Bridal Entry On A Truck
If there is an award for the most filmy bride entry at an Indian wedding, it has to go to Alia Bhatt from Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya.
Straight out of the dream of every #bollywoodbride, this scene has Alia Bhatt decked-up as a bride on the roof of a truck while doing that signature SRK step.
As if that’s not enough, she goes on an adventure in search of a designer lehenga for the wedding!
If you’re looking for a thrill and nothing but the best for your wedding day, give this movie a watch first.
6. Band Bajaa Introduction
Let’s be honest… Band Baaja Baarat inspired a lot of people to get a wedding planner, and for good reason too..
The first thing you’ll want to borrow from this ‘all-about-weddings’ film is the music!
Whether you’re looking for a playlist for the sangeet, mehendi or wedding performances, we dare you to try listening to the songs without tapping your feet.
Our favourite is the Baari Barsi performance by Anushka Sharma at the sangeet. I mean, what better way to introduce your family with that of the groom, right?
7. Flirting Goals At Friend’s Wedding
Single ladies at Indian weddings are the second biggest centre of attraction- after the bedazzling bride, of course!
Take a page from this movie, and try woo-ing your eye candy with moves like Kangana in Tanu Weds Manu.
In no time, you’ll probably be getting some pretty interesting proposals. 😉
