In India, bridal dresses are the most exquisite and beautiful garments. Every designer creates an exclusive bridal collection which is inevitably the jewel of their catalog, while brides spend months putting together the perfect bridal ensemble for their special day. While every region of the country has a unique bridal dressing style, reflecting their own traditions and culture, there are also many modern Indian bridal dressing styles. The latest bridal dresses take inspiration from the rich and ornate designs which are the trademark of traditional bridal ensembles in India; however, they usually have many elements which are completely unique and quite innovative.
A great example would be the increased use of unconventional shades of white such as cream, ivory and champagne in designer bridal collections. There are certain types of south Indian bridal sarees, called the Kerala Kasavu sarees, which are white with gold borders. They are the traditional choice of brides here even though white is considered inauspicious in other parts of India. To make the color pop and to make it appropriate for special occasions, designers tend to incorporate golden tones along with white, the way it is done in Kerala Kasavu sarees. The more innovative bridal salwar dress types pair silver embroidery with pale white fabrics to create an ethereal, silvery aesthetic which is both ornate and beautiful.
Typically, even when the colors and designs used are innovative or western, the motifs and embroidery styles tend to be very traditional. Intricate, exquisite zari work and effusive nature inspired patterns help to make the outfit a truly unforgettable one. Of course, the jewelry for brides also has to be appropriately heavy and traditional to create the right aesthetic for the outfit.
