AS SHE WALKS DOWN THE AISLE

SEVEN LAYERED

It’s all about the vintage appeal and nothing defines vintage better than wearing a satlada. This 7 layered necklace sported by Nizam’s and Mughal’s alike is perfect for the modern Indian bride.Although the traditional necklace is 7 layered and has 456 pearls embedded, there are modern renditions with Polki inlays or precious stone additions.

VICTORIAN APPEAL

With retro fashion back in full swing, brides are opting for gowns from the time of carriages and chivalry in their chantilly gowns with high necks and capelets. Designers such as Yolancris, Elie Saab, Ermanno Scervino,have featured Victorian inspired silhouettes in their Fall/Winter 2016-2017 collection. The elaborate skirts are even made detachable for ease of of movement. .

OFF-BEAT HUES

The time of jewel toned outfits are behind Indian brides. With latest collections like Sabyasachi’s ‘Firdaus’, or Gaurav Gupta’s ‘Scape Song’, brides are opting to wear colors like grey, silver, olive green, mauve and even black for their nuptials. With the right silouhette and embellishments, designers have found ways to make any colour suit a bride.

GLOSSED OVER

After travelling through a spectrum of colors and formulas, glossy pink lips are back in trend for brides. The color is perfect for both day and night weddings, and can either be part of a fresh, glowing bridal makeup look or the eyes can be highlighted and the lips finished off with a fleshy pink lip color.

FOR THE MAN OF THE HOUR:

ALTERNATE VIEW Gone are the days when brides looked like a million bucks and the groom wore a plain suit. Today’s grooms are stylish, daring and all for making fashion statements just like their lady love for their nuptials. Off beat silhouettes such as long quilted jackets over kurtas or oose harem pants with fitted jackets are in vogue
