The most freakishly important part of Indian culture – It is not simply about the big day, but all the other days that precede it and that means 5 times more pressure on the bride to look gorgeous and sail through the whole ordeal like a magnificent Mughal queen. When you think of it, it looks like sitting in Miami sipping Pina Coladas and letting the sun do the magic, while really feeling like a Bridezilla with all the heavy clothes and jewellery, and being scorched with multiple camera flashes.
But worry not you trousseau clad beautiful brides to be. Here are some fab style tips to make you look like a million bucks!
1. DO NOT COMPROMISE ON YOUR WEDDING DRESS
This is to say, whether you decide to wear a beautiful traditional lehenga, a classic kanjeevaram saree, or something more modern, make sure it is your choice and you love it. You are the bride; it is your wedding day.
2. STICK TO THE COLOUR THAT SUITS YOUR SKIN
Yes, it’s a thing. You have the freedom to wear any colour you want, but know that there are certain colours to bring out your complexion beautifully.
3. KEEP YOUR SKIN HYDRATED
It is imperative that you have as much water as you humanly can consume throughout all the functions for no highlighter can match the evanescent glow of a healthy skin. On that note, moisturiser is the key to beautiful makeup. Drink. Moisturise. Drink. We mean water, but you’re always free to make your own interpretations.
4. IN HER SHOES
Desi weddings mean a lot of walking for you brides to flaunt your entire look. The most helpful advice here is, wear something comfortable and break into every shoe that you plan to wear to avoid the horrid case of a shoe bite. Since your glam stilettos will prove useless, try a pair of glitzy wedges or elegant block heels.
5. THE IMPORTANCE OF SILHOUETTES
Every human body is unique and beautiful in its own way and knowing what compliments your body the best is rule no.1. If you have the typical Indian voluptuous body, opt for cuts like deep neck and mermaid skirt that will definitely bring out those sexy curves. If you’re on the leaner side, go for heavy silhouettes and crop blouses.
That one word holds all the power of make-up all by itself. Photographs, as they are two-dimensional can make your face look round or flat like a sad chapatti in case, you don’t have lens defying chiselled features of the Gods.
7. ALWAYS FLASH-PROOF YOUR MAKEUP
Though the photographer will make sure this is not an issue, there is NO escape from the digital world we live in. You want to make sure that your seamless makeup doesn’t go ghostly white when the flash goes off.
8. DIAMONDS ARE YOUR BEST FRIEND
Dazzle yourself with baubles, but make sure you don’t go overboard. Keep it elegant and effortless. Statement jewellery will only stand out when it has space.
9. BE SPOTLIGHT-READY
Suddenly you’re a celebrity and you must act like one, which means you must be dressed to kill from whether it’s your casual luncheon with the girls or an exclusive dinner date with your spouse to be.
You are no less than royalty. Everything, from the wedding decorations to the groom’s attire should complement your outfit. Even the flowers must submit themselves to your ethereal glory.
