Weren’t you the one who grew up dancing on Falguni Pathak’s songs? Remember how we all tried to copy the famous towel dance in DDLJ. Also, raise your hand if you also imagine your whole family dancing on ‘Shava Shava’. If you did all this, congratulations your soul is straight outta the ’90s. 

We, millennial, grew up watching the filmy movies of the late 90s and early ‘00s. That is why our minds are always filled with Bollywood songs and dialogues. If you haven’t realised till now, most people of our generation will get married by the end of this decade. And this is INSANE!

So if you're one of those 90s kids who are getting married soon, why not steal the looks from your favourite actresses? If you are also a fan of that era just like us, don't forget to save your favourite bridal jewellery to fashion looks from this blog piece & thanks us later, brides :)

In this bridal look from the film Baabul, Rani Mukerji Chopra wore an embroidered saree with mirror work. She adorned her head with this dramatic maang tikka plus, to give a traditional touch, she paired her matching jewellery set with Rajasthani aad necklace that was so stunning!

Aishwarya Rai stole our heart when she played the iconic character of Jodha. Her OTT style allured us and be it borla maang tikka, bridal choker or layered necklace, everything was so beautiful that took our heart away. But apart from donning herself with heavy bridal jewellery in the Jodha Akbar movie she ensured to wear minimal nath designs that made her looked elegant & poised!
