Fashion in an Indian matrimonial set up has undergone tremendous changes since the past couple of years. The way brides, family members and even guests dress up has completely transformed and so has the way they shop for their lehengas and trousseaus.
It is completely justified that the bride wants to be her glamorous best on the day of her wedding, and finding the perfect outfits for each and every event takes up a lot of time and effort. Brides today prefer opting for designer wear, where they are sure to find some exquisite pieces which will transform them into princesses.
Making the correct choice for your big day can get tricky if you don’t already have an idea on what you are looking for and what look do you really wish to achieve. As the bride, or the sister or mother of the bride, all eyes will be on you and you want to make sure the silhouettes you pick for yourself and the colours that you adorn is the best.
Let us go through some of the hottest fashion trends this matrimonial season:
1. Traditional Attire:
Lehengas, sarees and even heavy salwaar suits are able to bring out the gorgeous and elegant side of any Indian woman. This wedding season, those who wish to stick to the traditional look can play with colours and accessories to highlight their outfits and suit the occasion. Traditional outfits are being replaced by the conventional red, greens and maroons to more contemporary shades of nude, champagne, hot pink, ruby, and peacock blues.
More and more women now prefer the collaboration of luxurious fabrics such as brocades and silks to create attires which help them sparkle even in the night. Detailing these pieces with traditional gota borders and zardozi embroidery with diamante’s and crystals allows brides to get the unique blend of traditional and modern design.
2. Contemporary Designs
For those who are willing to take more risks and stand out in the crowd, there is nothing wrong with making use of simple and feminine designs and converting them into something more personal and defining. Before you experiment with the outfit, make sure you are clear about your body type & what exactly will suit you. A clever design will help you highlight your beauty and hide your flaws.
3. Going for the Timeless Look
Go for the look of the heroines from back in the days, where you could simply drape your elegant saree and achieve the perfect look of a demure girl. With rich embellishments on your saree or just on your blouse, one can create the look for a complete Indian woman.
Traditional weaves such as Kanjivarams and Chanderis can also add to the timelessness of your wedding look and simply pairing it with a halter blouse of backless choli will do wonders to your appeal.
4. The Red Carpet Gown
This has been a prevailing trend among brides this season. Creative fusions between western cuts in long dresses and gowns with rich Indian embroideries and colours make for gorgeous gowns for brides to wear at their cocktail parties and even wedding receptions. This unique blend of fashion has resulted in the creation of some of the most chic designs this season. Depending on personal choice, type of event and even type body Indian brides are getting bold and wearing some highly fashionable gowns and pairing them with some simple yet elegant jewellery designs.
If brides spend some time browsing through designer catalogues and stores, they are bound to find themselves the perfect look for their big day!
