Wedding is the biggest dream event for girls in India. This is the d-day when all the eyes would be on her and she wants to make the most of it in everyway, after all she is the queen today. Marriage being the most extravagant affairs calls for lavish celebrations and vibrant dresses. Here are some handy tips to help you hunt for the best and trendiest wedding ensemble.

Colors

The Hot colors this season are jewel tones and metallic colors like Gold, Silver, Copper, Bronze, Emerald Green, and Blue. Burgundy, Cherry Red, Brick and Wine color are some other safe options. Pastel shades continue to be popular as well.

Designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee vouches for myriad hues of crushed diamonds, sapphires and rubies, brought alive with the luster of liquid gold, silver and copper and textured, to work fabulously with Indian skin tones and features.

Fabrics

 

Banarsi koras, silks, tissues, organza and brocades are some of the most popular choices. Flowy chiffons and georgettes are also in great demand.

Embroidery

The challenge here is to smartly blend classical with the contemporary– so you see streamlined fits with traditional intricate embroidery—in dull antique gold or metallic. Kundan work is popular and so are mukaish, zardozi, mirror, gota and pearl work. Add crystals for that extra dazzle and you have that perfect look.

The Silhouette

The silhouette is tight and neatly cut and extremely feminine. The fish-cut skirt is popular, as is the A-line ghagara with a fitted choli. The emphasis, according to Neeta Lulla is on the shoulders and back.

 Accessories

 Maangtikas and bindis are going to be really popular this season and so is Diamond jewelry. Jadau and kundan jewelry are also in vogue. Neeta Lulla recommends classical jewelry because she believes that jewelry lasts whereas fashion doesn’t. Kaleeras are also a rage this wedding season, so make sure that you do buy one for yourself.

Body Tattoos / Stick-ons designed to serve as arm bands, necklaces or body ornaments are gaining popularity and are in great demand today.

To complete the look, go for ethnic silk clutch bags and comfortable footwear.

 

 

 

According to Neeta Lulla “Elegance is the buzzword and a lavish use of fabric, textures and the dupatta in different drapes are very in. I am even doing two dupattas, one for head and one for the body”.

Designer Manish Malhotra suggests a “sans-accessories-high-on-costume” look. According to him, this wedding season brides can play down the accessories and make their outfits the prime focus. After all, Priyanka made a bold fashion statement for brides-to-be in “Dostana” with an intricately embellished lehenga which had a traditional yet contemporary twist with long slits.

 

 

Your wedding day is meant just for you. That is why you need to shine and look your very best, so no matter what you wear just top it up with oodles of confidence and you will certainly leave a mark.
