Weddings are endearing, exciting and nostalgic. They are also crowded, overwhelming and expensive. As the bride, you want to steal the show with a spectacular outfit while maintaining your composure throughout the evening. This can be difficult to do if you're weighed down with a cumbersome outfit that is impossible to move around in. The modern bride wants to enjoy her wedding, and we're here to help you do just that! Here's how to nail your 'I do's' while being cool, contemporary and comfortable.
1. For Your Mehendi: Easy Breezy
Mehendis and pittis require a light, open outfit that you can sit comfortably in. Green symbolizes harmony and fertility, and also complements the henna, rendering a royal look overall. Ride the natural tide in Arpita Mehta’s emerald raw silk lehenga featuring gold mirror work while letting your shoulders do the talking.
2. For Your Sangeet: Showstopping Style
Ditch the traditional heavy dupatta for an uber chic asymmetric sheer cape that is hassle free, and cuts the weight off your shoulders. This embellished fuchsia Ritika Mirchandani lehenga is high on style and will allow you to dance the night away.
Why leave your party before the guests do?
3. For your Engagement: Princess Diaries
You don’t need an over the top outfit to grab attention. Swap the flashy ensemble you’ll never repeat for fashion forward runway style, while making up for drama with an element that makes a statement.
