A lot of times it does not matter what you are actually wearing if the colour or the fabric is radiant. Get familiar with a range of burnt and brilliant metallic fabrics and colours. Go in for glamorous gold, stunning silver and charming copper.
A black and gold saree or the light violet saree in any shimmering fabric, are sure to add shine to your look. These can also be an essential pick for the trousseau to keep you in the spotlight at a big family dinner or any other festivity that follow the wedding day.
The rich nuances
You wish to break the norms with your style statement? Then, stay away from the multiple neon colours like pink, green or yellow; and embrace the ink blue, charcoal black and deep maroon this season.
These colours are bold and will help you make an impactful statement whether in a saree, lehenga or suit. If you want you can enhance your black ensemble with bright and festive borders in a saree or anarkali.
Unique colour combinations
Tailored and embellished, the long shirt with a ghaghra is a perfect Indian outfit that will set you apart from the regular sarees or lehengas. Go for unique colour combinations like red and green, mint green and pink, orange and gold, or mustard and maroon.
Royal velvet touch
If you are a winter bride, do not shy away from incorporating velvet into your saree or lehenga. Wear a velvet choli with a skirt that has similar borders. Velvets will not only keep you slightly warm, but will also lend a royal and regal touch to your entire look.
A beautiful net saree with a velvet pallu, or a saree with velvet blouse, will keep you cosy on your engagement or reception. It will make you look like one who believes in comfort along with trends.
Vision in White
Wearing white on happy occasions is no longer considered wrong. Simply a dash of gold or silver on splendid whites can have you glowing with elegance and style, similar to any other bright and loud colour. Whether it is an anarkali or a straight suit, the colour white will keep the look simple yet effective.
Just add a dash of some of your favourite festive colours to the outfit. Red and gold make a classy combination with white and off white. So, pick out a saree and anarkali in white and you are all set to make trend statements of your own.
Go for some nudes
If you move a little away from white into the nude or beige territory, you will again be spoilt for choices. Combine the nude colours with gold, silver, reds, pinks or greens to create an impactful look.
Other interesting colours that are quite in trend this season are vanilla and custard. So, if you are too keen on making a minimalistic style statement, then apart from beige and white, pick up something in these two colours as well.
Triple tone look
Indian weddings are all about burst of colours. If you are the kind of bride who just loves this, then this one is for you. Why stick to one or two colours in an outfit when you can go for three or more. Yes, get edgy and play with colours.
Go for some unusual combinations like black-mustard-blue, orange-grey-black or pink-black-grey. You can also go for two shades of the same colour and add another contrasting colour to it, like cyan-blue-beige.
Red it up!
While other colours will come and go, there is one shade that will always remain a bridal favourite. Red (and all the shades close to it) has been and always will be ‘the One’ for Indian brides. Traditionally associated with love and luck, this is also the colour of choice for the festive season and auspicious rituals that will follow your wedding.
Pick out embroidered red anarkali for a subtle effect, gorgeous red and cream saree or suit for full impact or a classic red saree. Also remember, if you are in any confusion about the colour for your wedding outfit, you can never go wrong with red.
Traditional accessories with twist
Whether it is a classic embellished clutch in a geometric shape, traditional jewellery paired with contemporary outfits, and one-of-a-kind drapes for sarees– today everyone in the fashion circles are blending the borders of past and present. As a bride, take a cue from them and update an old favourite with modern glam. After all, a stunning look seems incomplete without an interesting and an exciting accessory to go with it.
Keep following important tips in mind while shopping for your wedding trousseau.
As a newlywed, you will have to attend various functions after your wedding. So, keep some casual suits handy that can dress you up in an instant without you having to waste time and energy looking for what to wear. Also, make sure these casual suits look elegant and dressy, but are not too blingy or heavy on the eyes.
Talking about being casual and comfortable at times, here is an interesting and stylish twist you can give to your newlywed look. Replace the churidaar this season with beautiful patiala salwars to add a North Indian touch to your trousseau. Invest in a variety of prints in the salwars to go with lightly embroidered shirts for all the parties and family dinners that you will have to attend after your wedding.
Getting your trousseau in place does not mean spending a bomb. Be selective in picking up outfits. Look for the best deals, and try to get things that are value for money. Explore the combo sets where in you get two things at the price of one. It will not only add variety to your closet but also help you stay budget-friendly. This is a great option for all those casual suits that you will be picking for the daily wear.
So, fulfil your bridal wish list with the best trend-inspired outfits that will keep you stylish all through the festivities and ever after. Now as we hope that you are guided on a perfect revelry of bridal fashion, let the celebrations begin!
