When we said 'out of the box', this is what we meant! This couple took it too far to make their wedding vows a memorable affair. The duo quite literally fell in love, got drenched and became the cynosure of all eyes.

Fashion influencer, Sonam Babani too took the road less taken and tied the knot in Swiss which was all about otherworldly romance, towering snow-capped mountains, azure blue skies, whimsical decor & oodles of love. Now that's totally reel-worthy, isn't it?

2. When you have a big squad, put it to use!

It's a no brainer that dance videos do well as reels. All you need is a squad as big and well-synced as this one to pull off an energy-packed dance performance, and you're sure to make it to the explore section.

Even better, if you get some props handy and plan a groovy flash mob with your friends for your bridal entry or Sangeet!

If you've got enough time to put your creative fluids on the table and DIY some of your wedding elements at home, say your haldi decor, mehendi outfit, wedding invites or favours, don't forget to take enough pictures and videos of the process. Real bride Nidhi DIY-ed her bridal chaadar with personalised promises to self and shared the BTS snippets of the same in a reel, and it got all the attention it deserved!

Similarly, Real Bride Suvanya managed to hit a nerve when she reeled the story behind her personalised veil. She got a part of her father's letter embroidered to it.

Who better than influencer bride Niki Mehra showed us how to win hearts (and eyeballs) by keeping things raw and unfiltered, when it comes to your wedding. She made for one hell of a bride, who enjoyed every little and big moment of her wedding, and most importantly had each of it reeled to perfection. Don't miss out on the supportive text she added along with it!

9. Take on a challenge

If you're someone who is too active on Instagram, you would have chanced upon more than 10 reels on "The Day I Said Yes To The Dress Vs Your Dress On Your Big Day" challenge. It is definitely one of the few challenges that saw maximum participation from Indian brides (and also one that garnered maximum reach).

10. Hop on the relatable trend wagon
