Summers are here, and so is the wedding season! But, weddings are an elaborate affair. So, the rising temperature, sweat, and the uncomfortable feeling can get quite annoying for a bride. If you are getting married this summer, you definitely would not want to be seen with cakey makeup, sweaty look, and heavy traditional wear and jewellery, which will ultimately make you look all irritated in your wedding photos.
But, don't worry; you are just on the right page. We will tell you about five easy ways to look like a sultry bride in the scorching hot season. Here, check them out:
High-end bridal wear does not necessarily mean that you have to go for deep, dark and rich colour tones like red, maroon, mauve, etc. If you are getting married in the summer, go for more unconventional, cool and soothing shades, like strawberry ice, custard, aquamarine, toasted almond, and other pastel shades. Icy cool or earthy shades are your best pick if you wish to flaunt the sultry look.
If you are getting married in the hot, stuffy weather, you must focus on soft and lightweight fabrics such as chanderi silk, crepe, net, chiffon, satin, and other flowing fabrics. Extremely easy to carry, these fabrics are meant for modern-day brides who prefer light and breezy silhouettes. Sheer silks and organzas are always better than heavy brocades in the hot weather. These fabrics allow your skin to breathe and are easy to manage too. These fabrics will make you look carefree, and fluid silhouettes always add an extra feminine charm.
A growing trend among girls getting married in the hot season is to opt for lightweight embellishments and embroidery rather than a patchwork, beads, heavy laces, zardozi, etc. In order to have a complete relief from the heat and the consequent sweating, summer brides must stay away from too much bling. Instead, use shimmer, rich fabrics, pops of colours that give a rich look. Otherwise, you could also choose to have just a heavily-embellished border for your outfit rather than having it all over. Away from all the discomfort and sweat, this will make you look dewy-fresh in the photos too!
To be a stylish, trendy and beautiful bride, even on a scorching hot summer day, you must make smart choices. Choosing from the latest trend of Indo-western wear can be your best bet! This is where you can pick the most modern fabrics with the most recent cuts, patterns and colours. So, here you can experiment with saree gowns, dhoti sarees, crop tops, and much more. Patterned and textured dupattas are also a stylish choice when you want to keep the clutter to the minimum.
The biggest concern during summer weddings is makeup! Every summer bride’s mind is filled with questions like, "Will my makeup stay all night long?", "Will sweating lead to a cakey base?" and "Is my T-zone going to shine like a night bulb?". Also, many brides are confused that why they should go for airbrush instead of normal HD makeup.
Well, here are some of the important makeup tips and tricks that every summer bride should keep in mind, to look flawless on her special day!
Finish off your look with elegant, statement jewellery pieces that complement you and not weigh you down. That’s it! You are all set to be the most stunning and sexy summer bride of the season.
