Like every bride you dream of a “Big Fat Indian Wedding” and all the shenanigans that come with it. You have seen you cousins and friends don the bridal hat previously. You have seen them looking stunning in their bridal and pre-bridal ensemble. And never have you seen them wearing these again, be it the jewellery or the heavily embroidered designer lehenga. Now it is your turn and you are pretty much determined that you will only indulge in things which are timeless and go beyond just your wedding occasion.

But, it’s essential to be a Smart fashionista when choosing your ensembles which you can cherish beyond your wedding day. Here’s a quick guide on how to plan your wedding trousseau.

The bundles of moolah going into that heavy embroidered designer Lehengas will make you look like a million bucks on your D-Day but you need something that is “YOU” – bold, elegant and classic.

Shades of reds and maroons are the colors for your D-Day. But there are several functions which lead up to this day and you should choose from more vibrant colour palette. Go bold and play around with the colours and fabrics and get an outfit that will make you look traditional with a hint of contemporary. Pinks, peaches, aquamarine, mint green, grey and oranges may have been ‘unusual’ a few years back but they are pretty mainstream these days. A lehenga in any of these colors will make you look no less than a style goddess. Blue is the new red. So, show your panache on your wedding day in a royal blue lehenga. You can also try some exciting colours like gold and beige with this to create a truly vintage look.

Go with a wearable outfit which is a mix of simple and elegant silhouettes. Experimental bridal ensembles was the talk of the town this Spring-Summer 2015. The change in the lehenga — from being heavy in weight and fussy to becoming light and breezy. Draped designs, shorter hemlines, plunging necklines and international silhouettes are what make these outfits trendy and appeal to the fashionistas in you. Be it a floaty, whispery sheer capes worn over Indian silhouettes, a dhoti and cropped jacket, a maxi skirt with a crop top or floor length anarkalis, you can make a sweeping style statement with one of the latest trends in the wedding wear.
