For the constant love and affection that your parents have showered you with, all these years, they definitely deserve a special token of love and gratitude from your end. And what better way to make them feel loved and on top of the world by walking down the aisle with them?
Yes, making a remarkable entry with your mommy and daddy by your side is a lot in vogue these days! But more than a trend, it’s a precious moment to seal. So, ditch everyone and let your parents escort you for the most special walk of your life.
4. Enter in style under a shaandar phoolon ki chaadar
When we talk about popular bridal entry ideas, the first thing that pops into our head is a bride all dressed in her bridal lehenga and jewels walking down the aisle under a beautiful phoolon ki chaadar. Yes, that’s how synonymous a phoolon ki chaadar is to an Indian bride’s entry. Especially for all the North Indian brides! While some are picking traditional dupattas strung with kaleeras for their bridal entry, others are infusing the charm of voguish umbrella phoolon ki chaadars & those woven with multi-hued flowers, tassels and other fancy adornments to their entries.
And while you can always ask your decorator to get you one of the quirkiest phoolon ki chaadars, but if you want to add some personal touches to it, how about you DIY your phoolon ki chaadarat home? It’s super fun and doesn’t burn a big hole in your pockets.
5. Make your way into the mandap with the man of your dreams!
Even though your bridal entry should be all about you, but you can always take the offbeat route and rope in your bae to make a mesmerizing entry together. Simply walk hand-in-hand with your bae under a beautiful phoolon ki chaadar or with some dazzling fireworks and leave everyone smitten with your love.
6. Dance your way to the mandap
Dancing brides are the prettiest! Especially these brides who refrained from acting all coy and sashayed down the aisle shaking a leg with their girl gang and family members. While some opted for peppy Bollywood numbers for their bridal entry, others chose soft & romantic tracks to dance on and even dedicated their bridal entry performances to their beloved partners.
If you too want to make a sizzling dancing bridal entry on your wedding day, begin with choosing the right song. Be particular with what beats & tunes you’re picking so you don’t end up goofing up last minute. Once you’re done doing that, see if you need some props or accessories. Like if you’ve chosen to make a bridal entry on the song ‘Kaala Chashma’ make sure you pick a pair of black aviators to wear along with your bridal lehenga to do full justice to your act.
7. Go the classy way and enter in a vintage car
While digging the internet for some latest bridal entry ideas, we also stumbled upon a few brides making their way to the man of their lives in vintage cars. And oh boy, these dazzling beauties genuinely did some real magic to their wedding entry! Also, we loved how brides further upped the cool quotient by entering the venue sitting on their lovelies and posing like true angel.
8. Walk down the aisle with your girl gang
Who after your parents do you think will be escorting you all the way to the mandap? Your lovely ladies, of course! Well, amidst all the possible bridesmaids’ duties they’re expected to meet, the one that tops the list is of making your bridal entry one of a kind. And we couldn’t help but agree on the same after we saw a lot of bridesmaids holding the phoolon ki chaadar for their bridey BFF and swapping roles with the males in the family. (*Another trendy bridal entry idea SPOTTED!*)
