Anushka Sharma to Kiara Advani: Bollywood brides who chose pastel charm over the traditional red

The days of crimson being the color of choice for famous brides are long gone.


Pastel colours are now preferred by most Bollywood brides over vivid reds. Sonakshi Sinha, who got married to her longtime lover Zaheer Iqbal on June 23, is the most recent addition to the list. She repurposed her mother Poonam Sinha’s ivory bridal saree for her big day.
Let’s look back at some famous brides who likewise chose pastels over red:
