Indian Wedding Dresses For Brides And Grooms
Here Is What Is In Vogue For The Bride And Groom Dresses This Season
This season its all about color. Spring may have passed but grey skies can be countered with the use of brilliant hues. Garments that have a strong color accent worked into subtle bases are a good idea. While incorporating bright colors, never mix too many, just one bright color in a neutral scheme works well.
When it comes to fabric, net and lace is making a huge splash. Net is very versatile and when used in a pallu or dupatta draped on the bride, immediately adds glamour. If its lace nothing screams sophistication like Chantilly.
An Indian bride has to walk a fine line between tradition and trendiness at her wedding. For the mehendi a lehanga and a short choli that leaves the midriff bear is an ideal outfit. This outfit makes it easy for the bride to sit for long hours while the mehendi is being applied. For the sangeet, the options are wider, but the bride should be at ease while dancing. Anything from an anarkali to a lengha or even a gown works.
For the wedding itself, a saree or an elaborate lehenga is the most popular choice. But if you like to experiment then infuse some western influences. Make the lehenga more western by having it cut on a wide flare or with multiple layering. Up the style quotient by pairing it with a corset.
For The Groom
Compared to the bride, the outfits of the groom change only marginally depending on the function. But, it doesn’t mean that he can’t have some fun while dressing up. Sherwanis have now taken a back seat to Indo-Western Jackets that are reminiscent to achkans and slim trousers being worn instead of pajamas.
For the sangeet a narrow cut Indo- Western Jacket with slim pants look stylish on the groom. The mehendi is actually more for the bride and the groom can sport a kurta pajama or jeans, depending on how formal the event is.
The wedding is one function where the groom can be over the top and flamboyant a heavily embroidered and embellished sherwani in rich color will make any groom feel like royalty.
When it comes to accessorizing men have more variety now, with international watch and footwear brands coming in. Accessorizing with jewelry is also very popular, whether it be a tie pin, cuff links or a broche on the sherwani.
Not In Vogue
Putting extravagance over comfort is something brides and grooms should avoid. It is very hard to judge how an outfit embroidered with several kilos of stones and zari will feel and very often a beautiful outfit can be the cause of a lot of discomfort on the bride’s big day. Also in the hope of out-shining other brides or grooms, people choose popular styles rather than those that flatter their own body type.
