From Athiya Shetty to Alia Bhatt, here are the top 10 actresses who wore beautiful dresses at their weddings but not in red color.
Long-time lovers Athiya Shetty and KL Rahul are a married couple now!!! On 23rd January in Khandala at Suniel Shetty’s Jahaan farmhouse amid the scenic mountains and lush greenery, the love birds finally tied the knot in the presence of 100 guests, including close family and friends.
There weren’t many guests from Bollywood or the Indian Cricket team, as it was a close-knit affair. However, the couple will host a lavish reception later in Mumbai after the Indian Premier League.
Festivities were carried out with remarkable security arrangements ensuring that everyone entering the venue had a band on their wrists and their phone cameras were covered.
Suniel Shetty distributed sweets to the media and confirmed after the couple was officially married. Thanking everyone for their love and wishes, he said, “Functions were a beautiful, very small, very close family, but all went well. Aur abhi phere bhi ho gaye hai, shaadi officially ho chuki hai. Officially father-in-law bhi bann chuka hu.
Role father ka hi hai, mere liye mera beta aa raha hai ghar ye in-law ka chakkar hatt jaye aur father hi rahe toh bahut khoobsurat hoga kyuki vo part main ache se nibhaata hu.” The couple took to Instagram and shared the first pictures of their intimate wedding with a beautiful note,
In your light, I learn how to love….”
Today, with our most loved ones, we got married in the home that’s given us immense joy and serenity. With a heart full of gratitude and love, we seek your blessings on this journey of togetherness.”
Athiya Shetty looked angelic in her pastel pink lehenga, and we can’t help but reminisce about the bridal look of other actresses who ditched red for their bridal wear. So, let’s look at 10 actresses, from the brand-new bride Athiya Shetty to Aishwarya Rai, who took the road less traveled for their bridal look…..
A perfect blend of modernity and tradition, Athiya’s ethereal rose lehenga crafted with fine Chikankari, zardozi, and jaali ka kaam, is one of Anamika Khanna’s finest works.
The veil and dupatta are made of silk organza, the gorgeous lehenga is entirely handmade and hand-woven, and if reports are to be believed, it took almost 10,000 hours, that is 416 days, to bring this exquisite lehenga to fruition.
Athiya paired her lehenga with a full-sleeved blouse and completed the look with heavy jewelry, including a stone-encrusted necklace, maang teeka, and matching earrings. With a dewy makeup look and hair tied in a bun, she looked truly divine.
The #Ralia tied the knot on 15th April 2022 in a very private ceremony at their favorite spot on the balcony of their house in Chembur, Mumbai, in the presence of just close friends and family. Sabyasachi is the go-to designer for Bollywood couples for their D-day, and the couple also went ahead with him.
Summer wedding and that too in the unforgiving Mumbai temperature, hence the couple decided to white and gold color tones. Ditching the traditional red lehenga,
Alia wore a hand-dyed ivory organza sari with an embroidered hand-woven tissue veil.
Alia’s makeup was done so beautifully by Puneet B Saini; she went for a subtle no-makeup look for her wedding with just a touch of mascara, a hint of rogue on the lips along with the bridal glow on her face made Alia look very dreamy.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan
Aishwarya ditched the traditional red lehenga for her wedding back in 2007!! Aishwarya and Abhishek got married on 20th April 2007 in a private ceremony at Amitabh Bachchan’s bungalow, Prateeksha, in Mumbai.
Clad in a silk kanjeevaram saree, dewy makeup, vintage gold jewelry, and floral and gold-pleated hair accessories, Aishwarya looked like a dream on her wedding day. With her simple yet elegant look and letting her sharp features steal the show, Aish was way ahead of her time, and undoubtedly the diva set the trends right for future brides to follow.
Anushka Sharma is the reason you see Pink wedding lehengas becoming so common in weddings around you; she made it a trend big time by making that unconventional choice for her wedding day. Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli tied the knot on 11th December 2017 in a hush-hush affair in Tuscany, Italy, after dating for a long time.
Anushka wore a pastel pink lehenga with Renaissance embroidery with pearls, beads, and silver-gold metal threads.
To complete her look, Anushka went ahead with handcrafted jewelry, which included a choker, earrings, and matha patti from the Sabyasachi Heritage Jewellery collection.
With a low bun covered with Tuscan hydrangeas to seal the deal of her simple, delicate, and classic bridal look, Anushka couldn’t have looked more beautiful.

Television actor Ankita Lokhande too jumped on the bandwagon of dumping the usual red and hopped on the trend of pastels for her big day. She looked breathtaking in ace designer Manish Malhotra’s heavily embellished golden lehenga.
Ankita tied the knot with her long-time beau, Vicky Jain on 14th December 2021 in three-day lavishly done wedding festivities in Mumbai. The happy couple looked royal on their wedding day, with Ankita looking no less than a queen in her golden lehenga and heavy jewelry.

Ankita completed her look with heavy gold earrings, a choker, a statement necklace, a nose ring, maang teeka, rings, and of bangles
Asin Thottumkal tied the knot with Micromax CEO Rahul Sharma in twin wedding ceremonies on 19th January 2016 at the Dusit Devarana hotel in Delhi.
The couple got married as per both Hindu and Christian wedding traditions in a very closely-guarded affair, in presence of close family members and friends.
For her Hindu ceremony, Asin opted for a golden lehenga by Sabyasachi Mukherjee, ditching the oh-so-predictable red attire. Asin looked mesmerizingly beautiful in her lehenga that had a thick maroon detailing at the hem, along with her Kundan jewelry to complete the look.
Asin’s bridal look was single yet elegant, minimalistic yet eye-grabbing, and definitely something that can be donned by you on your big day as well.
Proving that less is truly more, Neha Dhupia looked ravishing on her wedding day. Neha Dhupia got married to Angad Bedi in a traditional Sikh wedding ceremony at a gurdwara on 10th May 2018.
Anita Dogre created Neha’s lightweight lehenga with the age-old Rajasthani touch in embroideries, which included gota patti, zari, zardozi, and dori.
Former Miss India went with au naturale makeup, a Fuschia bindi, a sleek bun adorned with fresh blooms, a matching pair of jhumkas, a maang teeka, and a traditional red choora to complete the look.
Although the main highlight was her ‘gulband necklace’, also referred to as the princess necklace, encrusted with uncut diamond and emerald beads, making Neha look like an actual princess on her D-day.
Soha Ali Khan
Soha Ali Khan and Kunal Kemmu got married on 25th January 2015 after dating for a long time, at their Khar residence in Mumbai. In a true ‘nawabi’ style, the couple got married in an extremely low-key affair, in presence of just the family and registrar.
Soha Ali Khan’s wedding lehenga was in ivory and gold with a touch of “kesariya orange” on the insistence of none other than the bride’s mother, Sharmila Tagore, completing the iconic look so beautifully.
Sabyasachi told that Soha’s lehenga was the showstopper lehenga from his opium collection. If truth be told Soha looked her absolute best at her wedding, like the true princess that, as a matter of fact, she is!!
Anushka Ranjan and Aditya Seal had a dreamy wedding on 21st November 2021. The couple stole our hearts with their awe-inspiring wedding, videos of Aditya’s song on Anushka’s bridal entry, and more such cute moments from the wedding gave serious FOMO to each and everyone out there.
While the wedding had lots of elements that grabbed our attention, the most significant of all was the bride’s unconventional outfit choice.
Anushka chose an offbeat lavender lehenga for her wedding day and without a doubt, she looked ravishing. The dreamy lehenga that was custom-made by Mohini Chabria, looked all the more beautiful with Anushka’s diamond jewelry, neutral makeup, and bold eye look.
Actress Amrita Puri of ‘Aisha’ fame tied the knot with her restauranter beau Imrun Sethi on 11th November 2017, at the Antara Riverside Resort, Bangkok in the ‘Anand Karaj’ ceremony with only close friends and family in attendance.
Amrita looked ethereal in Sabyasachi Mukherjee’s ornate off-white and gold lehenga while walking down the aisle under a canopy of flowers.
Amrita complemented her refreshingly muted hue lehenga with a layered Kundan necklace, maang teeka, red choora, and jhumkas. Her floral lehenga with colorful embroidery and sequin work was the perfect choice for daytime festivities making the bride look chic, classy, and breathtaking.
