And coming up every week with something exiciting for my fam has now become a mandate for me! So here I’m today with yet another blog on Indian bridal dress or wedding dress, where I’ll be sharing my tips with you’ll on selecting your perfect bridal dress 😊
For every bride , her wedding day is a big day of her life! And having a perfect wedding dress is something she puts on her topmost priority list! Every girl wants to remembered for being the perfect bride who looked like a dream ! And for that to happen you should be bang on with your bridal or wedding dress selection.
In order to find that perfect fit you need to consider few points that would definitely help you out with choosing the best for you on your big day. So here are my 5 tips which I think are absolutely crucial when deciding on your wedding dress.
1. Before you start hunting your wedding dress, know your body type!
Its very important for you to know your body type before you even start looking out for your wedding dress. Something that looks good on sabhyasaachi magazine bride may not necessarily look good on you! Every girl has a unique body type and its important you know in which category you fall. For instance some have hour glass shape, some pear shape, rectangle, apple shape and so on. Once you know your body type then you can do a bit of research on what would suit you the best and then start looking out for the your bridal outfit.
2. Choosing the right color shades for your wedding dress!
Well with red, maroon or gold being the ideal bridal colors, off lately the trends are changing ! Our brides have started going in for pestle shades like peach, baby pink, greys and stuff like that ! What I would like to say here is no matter what the trend is its important to know YOUR color! Brides that are a bit on heavier side should opt for deeper dark colors for a slimmer look! Whereas brides with slim figure can go with lighter tones or colors! Similarly a bride with heavier upper body can go for darker color choli and lighter color skirt whereas a bride with broader lower body and thinner upper body can just reverse the color combination.
Also keeping the wedding time in mind is also very important! If you having a day wedding its always a good idea to go for bright pastel shades! Likewise if you having a late evening ceremony you can opt for darker colors!
3. Keep the wedding season in mind!
This is a very crucial parameter yet the most neglected one! We think of everything else but never give it a thought to this particular aspect! Imagine you are getting married in the month of april or may and having a destination beach wedding that’s during a day. In such scenario velvet and summers is going to be the most aweful combination to have on your wedding day! So make sure you choose the fabric of your wedding dress depending on your wedding season.
If you choose to tie a knot in winters opt for thick fabrics like velvet and silk. Similarly if you plan to have a summer wedding going for easy breezy fabrics like net, chiffon and so on would be a great idea !
Yes ladies! Dupatta! Well you’ve paid so much attention to your blouse and the lehenga, how can you just take your duppata for granted! Those days where you would match your duppata with your lehenga color are long gone! Its a trend of contrast now ! Add a pop of color to your lehenga with contrast color duppata which would lift up the whole look!
Not just that, its also important how you style your duppata. If you are going for curls its always a great idea to keep your duppata flowing freely over your hand from your shoulder. If you are going for an updo or a bun its always advisable to pin up the duppata on the bun. So make sure you select the duppata depending upon the look you would go for!
5. Select your wedding jewellery first !
Yes ladies! You would wear your wedding dress just once but your jewellery would be a constant factor for all your family weddings and events. So make sure you select your jewellery based on your taste and considering its use later and then select the bridal dress to go with that jewellery unless your wedding dress cost is more than that of your jewellery 😉 Also on selecting heavy long neckpieces make sure your blouse has minimal work on it to avoid looking flashy!
These were my 5 top most pointers to be considered when selecting your wedding dress, apart from these there are several other factors that should be considered when deciding on your wedding dress. Some of them include the color of your partner’s outfit, the fit of the dress, it should be able to hide the flaws of your body, usability of the wedding dress later, the type of wedding like Punjabi, Marwari and so on!
