Veere Di Wedding has contributed tremendously to the wedding season of 2018 and I am sure it will continue to do so for some time now.

One of the iconic dresses of the lot is the lehenga skirt worn by Swara Bhaskar. To use this attire as one of your Bollywood theme party dress ideas would be a 10/10 choice. Get yourself a periwinkle blue lehenga skirt with floral prints and a cropped blouse of the same shade. Pair it up with a net dupatta and let it fall freely over the front part of your body. Wear less jewellery and focus more on your makeup. If needed, just add long earrings in order to make it little more sophisticated, sufficient enough to suit the event.

Alia Bhatt has definitely set some goals for us with her bridal fashion in Badrinath Ki Dulhania especially with that tremendous confidence and sass she sports. To copy her look for your wedding, get yourself a lehenga with pink base and silver stone embellishments on it. Pair it with a contrast blouse of a golden shade along with a dupatta of the same shade as that of the lehenga. You can keep the jewellery minimal and compensate that with heavy bangles. It wouldn’t be a terrible idea to sport those shades like Alia Bhatt if the wedding is set up somewhere outdoors.

9. Rekha as Umrao Jaan

The evergreen Rekha ji is the epitome of beauty in Bollywood. Her role in Umrao Jaan is said to be one of the most iconic performances in this film industry. Achieve this look by wearing a pastel white silk Anarkali with lightly beaded dupatta. wear either Kundan or Pearl jewellery with it. Keep the makeup subtle but the lipstick dark.
