There was a time when court weddings were considered uneventful, and dare we say, boring. But those days are long gone now. With more and more couples making a conscious decision towards saving themselves all the hassle of a big fat Indian wedding, court marriages have become incredibly chic in recent years. From real-life fashion-forward brides like Emily Ratsjkowski to fictional ones like Carrie Bradshaw—there are plenty of role models to look up to. (Psst: Vicky Kaushal & Katrina Kaif too are believed to have got married in court before their star-studded Rajasthan wedding.)
