We've witnessed a parade of Bollywood weddings unravel on Instagram this year—and who can blame us for gawking at each of the stunning brides through a carousel of images bedecking our feed? From Katrina Kaif fashioning her ensemble with a minimalistic look to Yami Gautam wow-ing us with her statement-making lipstick, we're loving each bridal trend that defined 2021. Here are 5 trends we're not getting over any time soon!


01. Yami Gautam: The quintessential Indian bride

Red is a bridal trademark, isn't it? It's a staple that we never tire of, and Yami shows us why. The actress played MUA on the day of her wedding, and dabbed a hue of red on her lips, and brushed undertones of the colour across her cheeks, along with fashioning her look with soft kohl-rimmed eyes and a traditional updo. And despite the nature of the colour, she championed red while retaining the minimalism of her look.

Katrina Kaif has never gone overboard with her looks. She accompanies most of her appearances with a dewy, lit-from-within look, and it's safe to say that she did just that on her wedding. We love how she kept her hair simple—subtle waves complemented by a 'maang tikka' was all she needed to set a trend.


03. Rhea Kapoor: The bold bride

We're not quite over the bold stroke of black running across Rhea Kapoor's eyes—a sharp, thick, and long iteration of a standard winged eyeliner. Her eye makeup, set against a shade of pink eyeshadow headlined her entire look.


04. Patralekhaa: The flower-loving bride

Patralekhaa captured the essence of an Indian bride with a traditional updo accessorised by flowers. A fuss-free bun ideal for D-day, she covered her hair with a sheer dupatta that added a little more vibrance to her look.


05. Natasha Dalal: The minimalist bride

Just like Katrina, Natasha styled her bridal ensemble with a minimalistic look—a shade of pink on the lips, a hint of blue on the lids, a soft wing, and a simple half-updo elevated with a few flowers. We're such lovers of minimalistic looks!
