Summer is the perfect setting for a wedding in India; think glorious garden mehendis and open door sangeets. So if you're one of the brave ladies/brides to be who are ready to celebrate to the max in mango season, you're going to be in need of plenty of pretty and practical bridal ensembles.
Here are our top tips to make sure you are perfectly prepared for 2015 summer bridal dressing for your dream wedding in India:
Cool colours: Opt for softer hues like pastel green, dusty rose and bright ivory. But if it’s a must for you to wear darker colours at your wedding in India, avoid the traditional reds and golds, and swap for oranges, blues or pinks. A sprinkling of sequins throughout the ensemble will always brighten things up and have you looking both elegant and glamorous.
Less is more: Heavy fabrics with extreme embroidery and embellishment are out for this summer season. Instead, opt for classier and simpler options in rich and opulent hues with subtle and intricate detailing. Let the silhouette and style do the talking with a sophisticated and elegant design rather than an over the top one.
Mixing and matching: Bridal attire is all about subtle and classy bling for this summer season. Instead of opting for extreme metallics, go for pretty elements such as zardosi work in toned down gold’s or silver’s for your wedding in India. This will create a perfect and regal balance of elegant and traditional styles, whilst not looking out-dated.
Layering: One of the biggest spring/summer bridal looks this year is all about combining small traditional elements in a contemporary way, and making sure it works together as a whole. Layer a simple anarkali and kurti with a figure hugging koti or a stylish embellished jacket to instantaneously transform your look.
Vibrant saris: Saris are a great summer bridal option for adding a traditional charm to your look for your wedding in India. Opt for a saree in bright colourful hues of oranges, marsala or deep blues and team it with a statement embellished neckpiece and multiple gold rings for a stylish and opulent look.
