The new-age bride wouldn’t let her individuality drown in an ostentatious, 20 kg red lehenga. She plays by her own style rules, dreads looking like every other bride, and wants her bridal outfit to have a whiff of her unique self.
Sounds quite like the person you desire to be on your big day, but don’t know how to break free from wedding uniform rules? Here’s some inspiration for letting loose the rebellious stylista in you. Get imaginative and rock your biggest party with these outfit and styling ideas.
4 Mirror love
Mirrors aren’t confined to reflective sunnies this season. Add a dollop of old world glam with sheesha work on your outfit. For your sangeet, pick up a lehenga-choli with mirrorwork in a cheery colour. Underplay the jewellery — edgy kundan ear-cuffs, and multiple glass bangles on each hands will be all that you’ll need to dance away to those peppy numbers.
5 Dig on bling
Sparkly is in, sparkly is sexy and sparkly is your no-sweat recipe for instant glam. So don’t skimp on bling and go bold with head-to-toe shine for your cocktail party. What can be more diva-esque than a gold gown that skims your curves and ends in a whimsical trail? Also think sleek lamé dresses, coloured sequin dresses, glitter heels, and diamond minaudieres. You won’t regret these retirement proof picks that’ll set you up for those glamorous evenings, Iong after your honeymoon is over.
