If you are a bride-to-be, you must be already exploring the bustling streets of the city to find your dream ensemble. So, to ease the task, we planned this shoot to give you a lowdown on some of the best bridal trends this season.

Actor Mannara Chopra, our muse, will inspire you in four of our specially-curated looks. In the process of shooting, we realised that it is not easy to be a bride — carrying 40 kg of lehengas is no mean feat!

From wearing black to rocking fearless bling, here are the best of bridal trends, which will make you an instant head-turner. Check out the top trends that every bride-to-be must consider before deciding her D-day look.

Shine On!

Metallics and shimmer are having a moment in the fashion world, so a golden embellished lehenga with a simple net dupatta can be the perfect pick. Team it with a maang-patti, haath-phool and emerald earrings. Go for a braided bun and keep the makeup minimal with soft eyes, big lashes and deep marsala lip colour accentuated with gold.

Mute Mode On

A hand embroidered muted green sari can do more than an embellished one. Ditch the heavy can-can lehenga and go fuss-free in a sari. You can accentuate the look with a borla — a Rajasthani maag-tikka — along with a nose ring and kadas. Minimal makeup is the key. Go for soft brown smokey eyes and nude pink matte lip colour.

Minimalistic Red

If you like to keep it traditional, then go for red but let the couture garment be understated. A velvet lehenga with gold foil printed work and mukaish accents can be paired with a maatha-patti, haath-phool, an emerald choker and rani-haar, just like this look. Opt for long faux lashes, smokey eyes and deep red on the lips.

Black Swag

It’s time to go extravagant with a touch of royalty. An embroidered and embellished black jacket over a plain black anarkali is our pick. Break the norms and go for black. Team it up with a paasa and rings. A messy side bun with curled front tresses and nude lips will pump up your style game.
