Look elegant with these chic ideas
Most wedding dresses don't need much in the way of extra bits and pieces to complete the look, especially if they are already embellished. The classic colour combination for an Indian bride is red and gold, but of late, modern brides have been experimenting with different hues including orange, pink, blue, green and silver.
"While wearing a gown on your wedding, make sure to dial the jewellery back a bit and limit yourself to one attention-grabbing accessory at most," says experts.
Some of the best fabrics in wedding gowns as suggested by Kamaali Mehta and Shruti Mehta from kamaali couture for the brides to be are:
Rayon: A smooth fabric similar to silk, rayon is more elastic and affordable. This semi-synthetic fiber is lightweight and breathable, perfect for a summer wedding.
Georgette: Sheer and lightweight, georgette is spun from polyester or silk and has a crepe surface. Its soft silhouette makes it a perfect top layer in wedding gowns. They further suggest choosing feminine pastel colours in gowns like peach or lavender. Go for pastels like sky blue or bright colours like pink, depending on what suits you.
As our clothes and shoes are adapting to the latest trends, so should our jewellery. Nothing quite compares to the classic gleam of a gem necklace.
"You can have your pick with a diamond-white gown. If the gown you chose is already embellished with beadwork, let that dictate the colours of your accessories. And if your gown has silver beading, pick a necklace, bracelet or earrings with a silver base," suggests Ankit Khullar from Purab Paschim.
Before you start buying, take an inventory of your gown's standout features and then base your choices around them. If your dress has an ornate neckline, opt for a pair of drop earrings instead of a necklace that might look too busy. For a gown with a simpler style, try a bold statement necklace or a fascinator.
When it comes to earrings, take a cue from your hairstyle. If you're leaving your hair down and over your ears, small studs or drops will do.
