The Indian bride has transformed with time and she is no longer the traditional woman who fulfils others' whims and fancies. She is opinionated and does not shy away from asserting her preferences.
The new age Indian bride can be a career woman, a fashionista, a world traveller, a social butterfly or the reserved book lover. Whatever the persona, the modern bride needs a bridal outfit that suits her individuality.
