The summer season is at its peak right now. It's too hot to dress up regular, and dressing up for the wedding seems like a nightmare. But weddings don't see seasons do they? Let this summer see love blossom and fashion blossom even more stylishly for the would be brides. From hair, to accessories to clothing, the bride has to keep it truly classy even if it's 50 degrees outside. Let us show you how to get married this season without breaking into a sweat!
This is our guide on how the new age brides are bending the rules to make their weddings truly fashionable, personal and memorable-
Keep the silhouettes flowy and not fitted. A fishtail lehnga wouldn't be such a great idea. Keep it slightly A line if you have a bod to show off! Backless cholis, jackets and gilets are also a huge trend. Crop tops at a wedding might seem too scandalous to some of your conventional guests. However, you could wear them very stylishly while keeping things classy. The best way to do this is to choose a skirt that rides high up above the navel only revealing less skin. The top or choli of the lehenga can be relaxed and free flowing so it looks less revealing.
Gone are the days when Maroons, Reds and Magentas were the only colors that brides looked at. A vintage bridal lehnga in ombre pastel hues - Sea Green, Peach, Lavanders are the road to slinky summer style for your wedding. And trust us, they won't make you look out of vogue even later.
Heavy kundans and jadaus can be considered as a heritage for the bride, but if you are that quirky experimental kind, then you would love the maatha patti, body chains, elaborate nath, haath phool and even handcrafted jewelry to create quiet a look on your big day. Flash tattoos for the bride instead of the conventional henna or white colored henna tattoos are also something you might want to try!
Detailing is the key. The focus this summer is not on huge chunky embellishments but small detailing like Zardozi, crystals, Aari work, floral motifs in very fine designs. Even mirror work is huge but in its smaller less, flashier version.
The brides want different ideas for the various ceremonies of their wedding. A Sangeet look can be more fun, with Dhoti pants and crop tops or fitted one pieces. Mehndi could be about the anarkali saree or even short lehnga as the bride will be getting her arms and legs henna tattooed. The CAPE seems to have taken over bridal trends with full force and one can use it instead of the regular dupatta for a more classy look.
Since traditionally the head is covered with the dupatta, it's the front section that can be styled differently for the bride to look trendy yet traditional. Various types of Twists are a fun way to add glamour to the front section of her hair. They look elegant yet modern. The fishtail braids and top knot with floral or even metal adornments are some other fun options to try on your Mehndi or Sangeet.
