Do You Have It In You To Be A Daring Bride And Ditch Red And Gold On Your Wedding Day?

Do You Have It In You To Be A Daring Bride And Ditch Red And Gold On Your Wedding Day?
Bollywood is our one-stop-inspiration for everything fashion, and as the last couple of years have shown, nobody does weddings better than the beauties of Bollywood. While Anushka Sharma and Neha Dhupia paved the way for a whole new genre of lighter colours, Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Deepika Padukone showed us how to modernize the traditional red. The common theme among them was the delicate dainty bride with lighter shades, florals and heavy beaded work. With the trend also making its appearance on the runways of fashion week, there is no denying that the bride of this century is adventurous. 

So ladies, get your bridal binder ready and take notes, we’re making your summer wedding a little easier for you.

1. Channel Anushka Sharma and Neha Dhupia’s delicate blush look

Anushka Sharma was the first to put us onto the romantic colour feels in a floral embroidered lehenga by Sabyasachi, followed by Neha Dhupia strengthening our belief with her delicate gota-patti work ensemble from the Ainiti Lehenga collection by Anita Dongre. The colour has already become a favourite of brides this season. What’s noteworthy is that the colour is not only a new wedding favourite, red carpets all over the world have been dominated by pink this season.

2. Throw royal vibes like Deepika Padukone and Sonam Kapoor

A recent favourite of designers is the calming tones of white and ivory with splashes of bead and jari work in hues of gold. This white-gold classic combination has been ignored for years but is now making its comeback thanks to our Bollywood brides Deepika Padukone and Sonam Kapoor and even Isha Ambani (a close friend of Priyanka Chopra) who looked immaculate in their white ensembles. A good way to work with this colour is to opt for a chikan embroidered outfit, a trend that has been mastered by designer duo Abu Jani & Sandeep Khosla who incidentally dressed both Sonam and Isha Ambani for their respective weddings.

3. Have a colour fest like Priyanka Chopra

If you can't pick a colour, use them all. Priyanka Chopra for her Mehendi function set it right with her Abu Jani & Sandeep Khosla lehenga. Reminiscent of the ‘90s and the colour splashes from the decade, this trend is a head turner amongst the rivers of monotone.

4. Be the brave bride, experiment with contrasts

Television actress, Shweta Tripathi was a bride to take notice of. In contrasting colours of pink, blush and blue her ensemble was the perfect pick for a bride looking to beat tradition. 

Now that you have a cheat sheet, you’re one step closer to taking center stage with the latest colour trend.
