Stuck on red, pink, and maroon for your Indian bridal wear? Look beyond these traditional colors, and you’ll find a plethora of choices for your bridal lehenga.
The bride’s dress should not only be beautiful and picture-perfect but also exceptionally different. Achieve uniqueness by exploring trendy colors that go beyond the conventional palette.
It’s that once-in-a-lifetime moment when all eyes are on you. As a bride, you should be ecstatic and overjoyed. However, it’s common to feel a bit tense and nervous, questioning, “Do I look alright?” This thought resonates with brides worldwide, across cultures. Don’t blame yourself, dear.
Since childhood, many of us, as little girls, have already envisioned what we’ll wear on our wedding day. For some, it’s a deep red lehenga, for others, a Banarasi magenta sari, and for several, a vibrant pink one. While these colors are undoubtedly beautiful, countless Indian brides have already chosen them over the years.
On your special day, you might observe married women donning dresses in the same hues, saved from their bridal trousseau. It’s time to consider breaking away from tradition and embracing a look that reflects your unique style and personality.
It’s time for a change!
If you’re considering a change in your wedding attire, the fashion world has a reassuring message – white is the new red, or perhaps green or orange. Top designers have redefined the traditional image of bridal dresses in recent years.
In the Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2014, designers Shyamal and Bhumika showcased a floral bridal collection featuring stunning shades like beige, peach, wine, brown, aqua, among others. Gaurang Shah’s collection, Chandbali, paid homage to the modern bride with royal ethnic designs in vibrant colors such as sabz green, narangi orange, zard yellow, and more.
For those rooted in Rajasthan or similar traditional cultures, breaking away from tradition might raise eyebrows, but your wedding is uniquely yours. Trust your instincts on what looks best for you. Remember, as the bride, all eyes will be on you, regardless of the color you choose. So, if you feel like experimenting, embrace the opportunity without hesitation!
