Celebratory Fervour

This season revamp your closet with fashionable ethnic wear and more

The wedding season is upon us and as the bride/groom-to-be, one of the family members or even the guest, it is about time that you start shopping for your wedding clothes. It goes without saying that you would need more than a couple of outfits since our desi weddings span at least a few days and include about half a dozen events. While picking outfits, the foremost thing to consider is the colour that you are going to wear – you don’t want to be stuck wearing the same old pinks and reds like the previous year. Nor do you want to turn up in colours that are inappropriate for an auspicious occasion. But we love nothing more than a bride that loves to experiment. She knows all the “wedding rules” (red lehenga for the wedding, hair up in a bun) but the cool new bride of 2020 will ditch these expectations to create her own fabulous wedding!

So give your colour palettes a surprising makeover. Royal reds will make way for blushy lavenders, classy golds, peach and unusual blues and greens. Created in hues that remind one of the gentle ocean waves and golden beaches, brides will look breezy and beautiful in these shades. And the minimal and delicate embroidery and embellishment will certainly help the brides make waves with this look. Also, don’t forget to redefine your wedding look with minimal jewelry. There’s no hard and fast rule to go too OTT with your wedding jewelry this year, ladies, as less is undeniably more.

As for the grooms, they are going head to toe monotone with their sherwanis and kurtas and we are loving it. A groom's wardrobe has come a long way from beige and maroon sherwanis to a host of colours and unique silhouettes that we get to spot these days! And a gold and black sherwani set or a grey kurta with embroidered neck will surely raise the bar higher. To keep it short, it's a must-have in your wedding closet!
