Every woman dreams and plans about their D-Day attire much before they actually get married. And all they want is to look perfect, oh and also the look should be one of its kinds. Indian Wedding Dresses should be a result of the best blending of traditional forms and elegance.
What outfits can a bride choose from on her big day?
A traditional bride can drape an ethnic Indian Silk Saree or a Designer one, or go for an embellished or embroidered Lehenga. The experimental bride can go for a Lehenga-Saree or a floor-kissing Anarkali Suit. Indo-Western gowns might also be preferred by some, for that mess-free look.
What colours to choose?
Most Indian brides prefer wearing a dual-colour saree, where the body has the main shade, and the borders and pallu another. It can be single-coloured too, with zari work all over. The usual bridal colours that are preferred are of a reddish hue- red, vermillion, marron, magenta, orange or yellow. The combination colours may be varied.
Some brides nowadays also prefer off beat colours like blue, green, teal, purple for their bridal outfit.
Designs for your D-Day outfit
Hand-embroidered zari or zardozi work, traditional embroideries with motifs are probably the most preferred. Modern brides can also go for sequined, or pearl-embellished Designer Lehengas for your big day. Other handiworks like gota patti, can also be chosen.
How to pick that perfect outfit suited for you?
The only thing that should matter the most is the fit. It should neither be loose or ill-fitted nor should it be too tight making you suffocating. So be careful about the measurements.
You can stick to one-type of fabric and get a mix and match fabric too as per your level of comfort. And choose the shade you like and just carry it confidently. Everything will fall in place.
Some pro-tips for all those would-be brides
Accessorize your outfit rightly. A beautifully drawn mehndi with figurines, a matching clutch bag, a neat hairdo, and a pair of heels. But choose that pair which is comfortable for your feet, because there will be long hours of standing and wearing shoes. You’ll anyway be wearing a heavy outfit, so don’t overburden yourself.
Also, choose jewellery that complements your outfit and don’t make it look OTT.
You can go for a shimmery look with bright eyes and bold lips, it is trending and looks super chic.
