How many of us have grown up, dreaming about our own wedding?
For every girl (and her family), becoming a bride is one of the most cherished memories of life! But all this is preceded by a whole slew of to-do lists, and visits to the various corners of the country in a bid to nab the best and the most awe-inspiring dream bridal outfit, and trousseau.
Wether you like to bring the bling to the party, or be the demure and understated, there's a little piece of the "Bridal Fashion Week" Pie for every kind of bride... and her guests!
The Classic Indian Bride :
For the traditionally inclined who swear by shades of pink, red and orange; for bridal trousseau. These glittering bridal looks, are laden with super sized jewels, and bling. And spell royalty, and heritage. They are for the Quimtessentially Indian bride.
The perfect blend of traditional Indian artisanship, and the modern city girl's attitude. While some looks incorporate modern structure; others take to an adventurous colour palette and apparel styles to construct a bridal look. Theone collection which stood out in this category, had to be Manish Arora’s take on quirky and pop-art inspired bridal wear.
Minimalism has a charm of it’s own.This season of bridal week saw a great amalgamation of earthiness and haute couture. The organic bride is not limited to just the minimalism, but also a color palette of muted shades inspired by nature.
The Victorian Bride :
Rohit Bal stood out in this category, while he showcased an avant-garde Victorian inspired collection, complete with vintage style collars and cuffs, and tight lacing bandage ribbons. For this look, think lavish bouncy long gowns with lace sleeves and shawls, bateau necklines and a well framed empire-lines.
The Grecian Bride :
For those inspired by the Caesars and their glamour, inspired by the ‘Chiton’ and 'Toga' this style is all about elegant draping, wedded to the Indian style jewelry. Embellishments and thoughtful details in terms of embroidery and hair & make-up add the necessary wedding appropriate vibe. Although these looks are best sported on a pre-wedding function, or on a wedding guest.
