The Wedding Season is Here - Learn What's in Vogue to Look your Best!

Jun 18, 2018

During the wedding season, every bride and groom want the perfect look for their special day. Perfect look can be achieved in weddings by wearing the right outfit along with accessories to catch everyone’s eyes and quite a few cameras.

There are different options for different events and rituals.

Brides can wear Phulkari saree for engagements, a classic embroidery style that originated in Punjab. A half saree is another option; it’s a lehenga skirt with a dupatta tucked to the waist like a saree instead of a six-yard drape. Brides can also wear heavy borders and motifs for the skirt with a net or chiffon dupatta.

For semi-traditional events like receptions, a floor-length gown in lace, silk and georgette fabrics with subtle embroidery work like the Lakhnavi style that embodies thread work without zari suits great.

Neon colours combined with Pastel tones give a muted look and are suitable for gowns, sarees and lehengas. Skin tone should be considered before choosing a colour. Brides with dusky tones can choose nudes instead of neon colours. They can also choose royal blue or a red choli with mustard gold.

Brides prefer the traditional way and it is a look that will remain evergreen because on the main day, you can’t do experiments but wear what you know will work.

Maharashtrian paithani saree or a South Indian Kanjivaram saree can give a unique look. Lehengas can be mixed and matched with different fabrics like chiffons, cotton, and georgette, net and silk. Colours like orange, mango, red, fuchsia pink, dark and electric blues with mirror or kundan work, zardosi or machine embroideries can be a great combination.

Quality of wedding cloths should be maintained as women like to cherish that clothing for long time by dry cleaning, inserting butter paper or muslin cloth in between the folds to avoid fading of colour and knotting of the embroidery with beads and kundan.

Temple gold jewellery will make a good combination with maang tikkas, Kanjivaram sarees, heavy jhumkas and gold or silver finger rings, lehengas for the main day. Kundan jewellery is always fashionable with a gold base combined with pearls. Gowns can be combined with chandelier or drop earrings and American diamonds.
