Marriage is a turning point in most women’s lives. Every girl dreams about being a bride since the time she was a little girl. Magazines have been carefully examined, celebrities have been stalked and Instagram hashtags have been followed to stay up-to-date with all the latest wedding trends.
While it’s a lot of fun decoding wedding and post-wedding style statements, there’s no denying how much pressure it puts on a bride. There are a number of things she needs to arrange for her wedding trousseau, that’s why sometimes missing out on some basic essentials can be obvious if you are short on time.
Indian weddings are a maddening entourage of celebrations, which is why sticking to the basics is essential. Here we line up a few things that a bride-to-be must be equipped with to walk the aisle with ease.
High heels are an absolute must for any bride to be. They don’t just accentuate her beauty but also complement any outfit she wears whether it is traditional or Western. Make sure you buy a couple of pairs in bold and prominent colours like black, red and gold so that you can accentuate the oomph factor with ease.
Subtle Jewellery staples
Pre-wedding and wedding celebrations requires a bride to be decked up from head to toe. It is advisable to go for heavy jewelry options for these occasions but post-wedding celebrations one should stick to subtler option. For a mooh-dikhai ceremony, you can don a pandora bracelet instead of those chunky bangles to don your wrists. Stick to those lovely Maang Tikas as they instantly elevate your traditional look.
While there's nothing that matches the class that is added by the heels, but they aren’t the most practical footwear option. For something more casual that can be worn every day, decent looking and more importantly comfortable flats are something every bride to be should own. Ideally, juttis and ballerinas are the best options.
Traditional jewellery pieces
While contemporary pieces look great on modern brides, but Indian brides have an edge over the world with traditional pieces. The maang tikka, the jhumkaas, the kalleeres, and chooda make her look extremely exquisite. Here we do not say that you can’t go for a pandora ring or those subtle anklets that are easy to wear but make sure whatever you are buying has an ethnic touch to it.
