Bollywood loves its song and dance, and its drama and tragedy. And what better way to show it all that in a movie revolving around marriages with elaborate Shaadi sequences? Because Bollywood has no dearth of wedding-themed movies. While some deal with destination weddings, others show lavish joint family affairs. But one thing's for sure - you'll be treated to the best naach-gaana and outfits in town.

Hum Aapke Hain... Koun!

No list on weddings is complete without the mention of one of the biggest blockbusters and family sagas Bollywood has seen. Some called HAHK a wedding video altogether, with songs for every ceremony. But arguably, we call it the biggest Shaadi film ever. No other movie has come close to its success. And with Salman Khan and Madhuri Dixit exchanging those shy glances from behind their parents, it gave Bollywood some of its most beautiful "aww" moments.

The flamboyance of a Gujarati wedding and all its traditions went a notch higher with the fresh chemistry between Salman Khan and Aishwarya Rai. As Ash puts it in the film, Gujaratis have songs for every ceremony. And don't miss the heavy lehengas and ensembles of the entire cast. Yes, we are still drooling!


While Shahid plays a wedding planner, Alia plays the sister of the bride. The film's trailer promises an exuberant affair, with limos and palaces thrown around generously. And that's not all - it is being called "India's first destination wedding film."
