Bridal wearWedding is the one time of life when the bride wishes to dress like a princess. But bridal trousseau has also undergone a change. Earlier, it was the bridal lehenga choli designed exclusively by the designers. Nowadays, things are changing and people are going back to the roots.

Designs With A Difference

Bridal trousseaus are no more confined to the once popular umbrella cut lehenga choli. More and more brides are open to experimentation. They are again going back to traditional clothing. Instead of spending a bomb on the designer lehenga choli or even sari, brides are opting for the regional look.

The brides of the day with well toned bodies prefer to flaunt their curves instead of being fully covered. Designers like Ritu Kumar and Sabyasachi believe that the bride should be the brightest of all in the gathering. More and more brides are opting for the Durga and Devyani Pochampally sarees for a chic and gorgeous look. Devyani pochampally usually comes in bright color combinations with intricate zari border.

Blue toneWinter wedding colors can go with the theme of the season by incorporating icy tones, jewel tones, or holiday colors. They can be used as contrast against a sometimes bleak and colorless time of year or to play up a winter wonderland theme. They are generally cool in tone, though warm-toned accent colors can add interest to the overall appearance of the ceremony or the reception hall.

Ice and Snow

You can play up winter’s icy beauty by choosing to use delicate baby blue, shades of gray and silver, lilac, periwinkle, navy blue, and white. Want a winter wonderland theme? This is the color palette for you.

You can use navy blue or periwinkle as the trim on your dress, for example, and then have your bridesmaids wear that color.

Add silver and white into the decorations and consider giving the bridesmaids pearl or silver jewelry to wear in the wedding.

GhaghrasEverything goes from bits of jewellery picked up at the Goan flea markets, to colours that our mothers and grandmothers would have baulked at. The 21st century bride is getting experimental. “The Indian bride is no longer stuck on just one look. She is experimenting with colours, the jewellery she sports or the bags she carries,” says designer Manish Malhotra.

Colours

While the choice of the ensemble remains the same - ghagra choli, a saree or a salwar kameez - the Indian bride is ready to try out new colours.

Blue, lime green, peach, pink, purple, just about anything goes. Says designer Benu Sehgal, “Brides wear ensembles in two colours that co-ordinate or contrast with each other. For instance, gold coloured saree with a red colour dupatta.”

Bridal toe ring and ankletOne factor that has excited enough dialogue in the battle between sexes, and even in the general debates within society, is the different ways in which people can tell if one is married or not. Bollywood, regional cinema and the small screen all make heavy use of the ‘mangalsutra’ a regular part of many scripts. One of the most popular Tamil serials of recent times has been ‘Metti Oli’ that can roughly translate as the sound of the toe ornament when it touches the floor, while walking, or could even imply the light being shed by a toe ring, or the brightness of this same toe ring – symbol of marriage.
