Like your wedding, you want your dress to be unique and you need to be sure of what type of look you want. Do you want to stick to your roots and go all out traditional or ditch the old ways and opt for a modern look?
Well Opulence, elegance and glamour are the buzz, so classic embellishments using finest weaves, embroideries, jewels, stones and techniques in fine fits add drama to this season’s trousseau.
Old World Charm
So many brides feel compelled to stick with the reds and golds of yesteryear. And if that’s what you like, then don’t stray from tradition. But if you know that you look stunning in pale pink, buck the tradition and go for it. Our pick: A paneled lehanga with gottapatti work, choli and an elaborate duppatta! The lehenga- skirt is streamlined at the waist and hip, and flares out at the bottom, flattering your figure, giving a very feminine look. Moreover the flare at the bottom gives grace and movement.
Traditional Weds Trendy
If you are unsure of whether to go the traditional or trendy way, opt for the middle ground. Both pretty and practical! The reds and maroons rule, but steadily finding space in the brand-new wedding closet is jewel tones like gold, silver, fuchsia, orange, emerald green, candyfloss pink, and Naples yellow. Our pick: Full sleeved blouse as seen on the runways of TarunTahiliani and Neeta Lulla. Pair it with a net sari so you don’t feel too covered up as this season is all about curves -- curvaceous glamour! Instead of hiding what you have, show it off. Be proud of your body, no matter what your size. Add a heavy embroidered dupatta to your ensemble for that perfect wedding dress.
Quintessential, if extremely stylish or ultra modern is how you would describe your style, then go for Victorian look for your D-day! Lehengas with gown-like outline with embellished shoulders will definitely make you look apart. Our Pick: A fuchsia pink colored net-width lehenga, along with jamawar border dupatta and a velvet bodice plastered in a mesh of Swarovski elements!
