Being a bride or a groom’s mother can be hectic and overwhelming, but why should that stop you from looking gorgeous on your young one’s big day? While reliving the memories of your big day, you would want to dress up like a diva. Yet, you are aware of your age and would want to dress up classy and mature enough to look like a mother. Tricky choices, right?
Who do you look up to for some inspiration? We think Sharmila Tagore is the perfect fashionista who can help you take some inspirations for your attire on your child's wedding.
Let us show you some of the best looks you can steal from this diva to dress up during your child’s wedding.
You thought a plain saree would be too predictable? Try this latest trend of wearing a saree with a jacket. More room for heavy embroidery! Your child will be so proud of you too. Sharmila Tagore has been seen sporting this style on the ramp several times- all with grace and poise. All you need with it is some sophisticated pearl jewellery and a half-up hairstyle. This look would work great for the wedding or even the reception.
This could be counted as her statement style, since Sharmila Tagore has a big collection of silk sarees and she mixes them perfectly with unique neckpieces. This could be your perfect style too if you love your jewellery like this diva does. Pick out similar silk or jacquard sarees, and complete the look with a low bun and a subtle lip colour. This can be a good look for the engagement ceremony.
We also give you some style inspiration for the father of the groom or the bride from the megastar Amitabh Bachchan.
To show the effortless way you can carry off a timeless style, nothing is better than a lightly embroidered net or georgette saree. These give you an element of young freshness, especially with a delicate border. Being lightweight and easy-to-carry, these sarees will be a lifesaver during the hectic days. Complete your look with some diamond jhumkas or chandbalis and lots of bangles. You can even keep your makeup subtle and girly, with some flowers in your hair for a completely fresh look. Try this ensemble for a mehendi or cocktail function.
If you want to keep it light, and yet look like a classic beauty, you could go for muted silk sarees. These sarees are not heavily embroidered or woven with bright gold threads. They have a muted pastel and soft look to them. These sarees give a regal look, and when paired with delicate jewellery in pearl and stone, like rani haars and cocktail rings, will make you look nothing less than a queen. You can flaunt this style for a day-time function like haldi.
Girls, do you want to stand out on your haldi ceremony? Well, Read Here and know-it-all.
Well, the style queen has been setting fashion trends ever since she entered Bollywood. What better way to be inspired than to know what she wore when she was in your situation? At her daughter’s wedding, Sharmila went for a quite unexpected Assamese traditional Mekhela Chador saree. You may want to try a different saree draping or saree material to stand out from the crowd. It can be a great conversation starter too. Team this exceptional style with temple jewellery and classic kohled eyes.
Well, this is specifically for the mothers of the brides-to-be. It is every girl’s dream to dress up like her mother, so why not make that wish come true? Dress up in a similar outfit as your daughter, just like Sharmila Tagore did on the ramp, and look at the joy on her face! Keep in mind to tone down the embellishments on your outfits, and accessorise with light jewellery to maintain the ‘mother-of-the-bride’ look.
