The wedding of the year, Bollywood star Salman Khan’s sister Arpita Khan’s wedding to Delhi-based businessman Ayush Sharma, is an inspiration. Although it was a fairy tale wedding, organized at the Falaknuma Palace in Hyderabad, would-be brides can take a cue of the trendiest bridal wear and makeup. Make your own fairytale wedding by donning the latest styles of the season.
According to reports, Arpita Khan Sharma was looking stunning in a light green and pink lehenga-choli and minimal jewelry. Her reception dress was understated, yet elegant. This flattered her gorgeous dusky complexion. Her dress was designed By Falguni and Shayne Peacock. Ayush Sharma looked dashing in a black tuxedo.
This implies that the hottest Bollywood trend for wedding this season is simple, elegant attired teamed with minimal accessories and high confidence.
This season’s bridal fashion is subtle with dash of retro
You can find a contrast between warm and cool colors. Warm colors like deep shades of bronze, crimson, mahogany, rush brown, and ash brown are hot. Cool colors like shades of blue from Lapis Lazuli to Royal Blue are trendy.
Talking of fabrics, choose rich velvets this season. Cold is about to set in and velvet’s satiny look appears terrific. Silks, chanderis, georgettes with intricate embroideries are trends straight from the runaway. Textured brocades, too, are trendy.
Silhouettes for bridal wear display a mix of traditional and modern glamour. Bridal fashion shows this season displayed fusion of saree and gown, jackets and waistcoats paired with sarees, dhoti pants, and voluminous ghagharas.
Choose bridal wear according to your body type
If you are petite, avoid wearing excessive embroidery. Choose a voluminous and flowing bridal wear in satin, silk, or georgette with delicate lacework or embellishments. Keep the look neat to accentuate your curves.
Women with larger frames can choose straighter silhouettes for a smarter look. Enjoy rich embroidery.
The 2014 Indian Bridal Fashion Week in Mumbai, from September 24 to 26, saw a slew of stars walk down the ramp with stunning wedding attires.
The top 4 bridal trends in the show were:
Silver zari work and mirror work. One of the leading fashion designers, Suneet Verma, showcased a stunning wear with hem in tiers of bright orange, red, and pink, combined with black body embellished with silver and mirrors. This was a stunner.
For a majestic look two-toned, dip-dyed Anarkali with a bustier works great. Flowing, transparent fabric combined with a heavily embellished bustier is an attraction.
To add luxury to your bridal ensemble wear a waterfall long, sheer jacket over a lehnga and shirt choli. Falguni and Shane Peacock created this look at the fashion week. Their lehenga was ash grey with beautiful gold zari, plus red threadwork.
In the recent fashion week, blue was the new red. Designer Ashima Leena’s collection saw a gush of blue shades that seemed to have come straight from Arabian Nights. It was a fresh new look, something different from the usual reds and goldens. Blue bridal wear can make any bride stand out on her special day.
