Bridal Extravaganza

Whether you've been dreaming of your wedding dress since you were five and know the exact specifications you want for it down to the last sequin, or you've never thought about it until your big day is just about to come, we've got you covered on how to choose a wedding dress. Pakistani wedding fashion is the most diverse and vibrant one when it comes to putting up with every little detail of your outfit. They are full of cultural ethnicity vibrancy.

This year we have seen brides breaking the typical stereotypes and going for new things. So, we would say that this is the year of innovation and experimentation for Pakistani brides. If you are planning your wedding this year or attending one or perhaps you’re planning a function for your loved one, then you are in the right place. Our first suggestion to you would be not to hesitate, if you have an idea, no matter how different or crazy it sounds, go for it, and you might be the next trendsetter.

Lehenga is the most traditional attire worn by any desi bride. Brides who want a colourful, vibrant flowy outfit should wear a lehenga. You can also go with long shirts or the traditional cholis with them as both are in fashion these day. Choosing the perfect colour for your bridal outfits is the most important thing to keep in consideration. The brides are now opting for different colours other than the traditional usual red colour, take hints from these gorgeous dresses for the trendiest colour choices.

Also, give special attention to the embroideries and embellishments on your bridal outfit for giving that perfect bridal elegance to your dresses.

Jewellery is another important factor that can make or break your look. Mostly, in our culture you get to wear traditional jewellery that passes from one generation to another. All you can do in that case is to maintain a balance and not wear everything you have. Also, if the jewels are colourful, go for a colour-coordinated dress.
