Every bride wishes to have everyone’s eyes transfixed on her as she walks down the aisle on her D-day. Thus, it becomes imperative to brainstorm a bit about your possible options and experiment with the same to stand out of the ordinary. But if you have been feeling worked up with the remaining bridal preparations and can hardly even get your glow-facials done on time, then we are here to help you pick your wedding dress with expert recommendations. So, without further ado, let’s get started with tips of bringing home the best bridal attire.
• Body Shape Matters
First things first, try and understand your body shape. A particular style which might be in vogue may not always look flattering on you. Rather you should try and opt for a style which can camouflage your problem areas and accentuate the best features. So, if you have a fuller bust, then you should ideally opt for a sari whereas women having washboard abs look super-hot in midriff-baring lehengas.
• Fabric Story
Skinny brides should stay away from clingy fabrics like satins, poly-crepes or chiffons. Rather they need to opt for fabrics like kosa silk, tussar silk, heavier weaves like jamdani and banarasi, and handloom silks like south cotton and kota on their wedding day. Plus-sized ladies need to opt for strategically designed outfits which are embellished in such places which can divert attention from their problem areas.
• Flattering Shades As Per Skin Tone
Although Indian ladies usually have a dusky complexion, you are also bound to come across some super fair damsels. This brings us to the third point of bridal dress selection where it gets imperative to consider your skin tone before zeroing on a particular outfit. Dusky ladies look best while flaunting shades of pink, peach, blue, dull gold, wine or olive. Fair women on the other hand look gorgeous in shades of emerald green and red.
• Mix ‘n’ Match
It’s your day girl, so don’t worry about what judgemental aunties have to say and go on with experimenting new things. Whether you wish to style a jacket with your banarasi or keep it low-key in a subtle chiffon sari and chunky accessories, you can exercise complete freedom with the same. But make sure to take a full twirl in front of the mirror before going out so that your nonchalant confidence oozes out all the way.
At the end of the day it all boils down to the grace and elegance of the bridezilla. You need to also strike the right balance between style and comfort as you will have to stay put in the outfit for hours during different ceremonies. Having maximum comfort will help you in moving around with confidence while making you look gorgeous in every frame captured.
