Tips to take with you when shopping:
- Choose it yourself
Make sure you ablsolutely love your outfit, don’t leave it to chance and try not to be influenced into buying something that doesnt speak to your inner goddes. Take those whose opinions you trust and need to be there with you to pick the outfit. It is suggested not to bring more that 2-4 people with you when choosing your outfits to avoid too many opinions and confusion. In the end you need to feel your best when wearing these outfits so colour, heaviness, style and design all need to fit your personality.
- Types of Outfits
Traditionally there was a lehenga and sari, but now options are endless. You can find gowns, dresses, lehenga saris, rajasthani, kashmiri, pakistani and punjabi inspired outfits. If you are planning on a destination wedding there are options with traditional looks done in lighter fabrics or new designers are offering resort wear made with breathable water resistant fabrics perfect for tropical destinations.
What is the perfect outfit colour and combinations? There are just so many beautiful options that it is hard to go wrong! What is important is to be sure that the colour compliment your skin tone, highlight your best features and don’t clash with your decor or setting. New looks for the couples include differing shades of the same colour (light and dark blue), complimentary colours (lilac and saje), or you can even colour co-ordinate your entire wedding party which would look stunning for pictures. There is always the traditional red, burgundy and pinks that always make a statement. Try to minimize wearing your wedding and reception colour for any other wedding events.
