Tips for dressing for at a Wedding/Reception
Indian Weddings are bigger than life where the bride and the groom dress up like royals to get married & devote their lives to each other. Dressing is certainly the main emphasis of the wedding where all the eyes are set on the new couple. ‘Borrow it Bindaas’ shares few tips on how to look gorgeous on your wedding day.
Vintage is Forever
Your family jewels and outfits are the best thing that you can get your hands on for your big day. Vintage speaks volumes about your heritage and a beautiful way to let people know about your legacy. Many brides in India opt for their mother’s wedding saree for their own D-day and passing on the jewelry is an Indian tradition followed by all the families.
Make your own rules
When it comes to Indian Bridal-wear, there are not many rules that one needs to follow. The only exception would be to avoid the color black……yet today Indian brides are opting for bolder designs and have an abundance to choose from. Sarees, Lehenga, Salwar Kameez, Sharara, a bride can opt for any of the silhouette. Red has been a favorite for centuries but pinks, golden, magenta, orange, peach, yellow and even blue can be opted for. Never follow any set of rules, instead create your own look and flaunt it on your wedding day.
Traditional with a Contemporary look
Indians love tradition, but these days brides want a contemporary styling to their look also. Gone are the days where the bride was expected to cover her pretty face with the saree pallu……these days a bride can opt for fabulous saree drapes that suits her body shape. Lehenga style sarees are very trendy where the saree is draped in order to look like a lehenga.
Make a statement with Accessories
The best way for a bride to get noticed would be to wear beautiful jewels with her bridal attire. Add loads of bangles with traditional neck-pieces and jhumka earrings. With the prices of gold reaching sky high, Indian brides are opting for gemstones, silver, gold plated, glass, diamonds and pearls instead of gold. Kundan designs are very much in demand for their regal appeal. A Maang tikka which is worn on the forehead is a must for all Indian brides.
