Highlights from Bollywood's Big Fat Indian Wedding - Neil Nitin Mukesh and Rukmini Sahay

If there is one thing that Indians love, it is Bollywood. A close second might in fact be grand weddings. And if you bring the two together for a Big Fat Indian Wedding Bollywood style, it's usually the perfect setting for magic.

Neil Nitin Mukesh is the third generation from a film family and at the wedding, star power was on full display. The bride looked absolutely gorgeous and the couple seemed to be absolutely loving every moment of their grand celebration

The wedding took place in Udaipur ( including at the Radisson Blu ( The pictures look absolutely amazing and it'll be fairly easy to assume that it was an extravagant and lavish affair.

The groom broke into tears at the wedding while speaking of his bride and said "Rukmini is just what we had dreamt for… She is just every bit of what we had dreamt for Neil. I hope they have a very happy life. I do want to see many grandchildren."

Both the bride and groom look dressed up in all their finery, but what has impressed us is the simplicity of their outfits and their nod to the traditional. A lot of brides have experimented in their looks for the big day by including styles that are very modern or different, but Rukmani kept it very traditional. Right from her lehenga and jewellery to her traditional style maang-tikka, it all came together beautifully.

And the actual ceremony seems to be full of pomp and style. As you would expect of an Indian wedding, there are plenty of events each with a different theme and style. Fireworks and flowers were on extravagant display throughout and Rajasthan provided the perfect backdrop for the royal wedding.


Pictures tell a thousand words and if these pictures are anything to go by, we can safely say that we are super jealous of the people that did get to attend this extravagant and gorgeous Indian wedding.
