For any girl, her wedding shopping is the most awaited task as soon as her wedding gets fixed. Shopping for the wedding outfit, jewellery and the most important of them all, putting together her wedding trousseau. A trousseau is that treasured luggage that a bride carries to her husband’s house after her marriage and contains all her new clothes, footwear, makeup items, accessories, jewellery and all the things that she would need in her new life, just post-marriage. While one might want to put in as many things as possible in it, there are a few things that are absolutely important to pack and not worth forgetting or missing out.

So, here is a list of the 14 most important things that a wedding trousseau needs to have.

A few pairs in nice bold colours like black, red and gold that stand out and give your Indian and Western wear an elevated look.

#2. Ethnic flats

While heels look fab, you cannot always be wearing them. For your daily wear needs, you need some nice and comfortable flats, something traditional yet chic that go well with all your suits and western outfits as well.

#3. Indo-western clutches

Again, three basic colors- black, gold and silver. These three clutches and you are good to go. They will come in handy with most of your newly stitched suits and sarees, and if you do not go for heavily embellished or Indian ones, you can also use them with your gowns and dresses.

#4. Sexy deep back blouses

Which will not only go with most of your sarees, but will also give you a chance to flaunt your sexy back. Not to forget, deep cuts in blouses are the latest trend these days!

#5. Few Indian attires with subtle yet rick look

For occasions such as post-wedding dinners, family functions, etc., make sure you carry a few anarkali suits, sherwani style suits with straight pants and a few heavy sarees or any such pieces according to your personal taste

Because at the end of the day, lacy satin lingerie will leave you uncomfortable and miserable. Go for comfortable fabrics that are stylish too. And, do not forget the sport bras for your workout sessions.

#7.  Stylish stoles

There are videos on the net (YouTube) that show you many different ways of draping a stole to make your otherwise casual and boring look nothing less than that of a runway one.

#8. Sindoor

Even though you get a box of sindoor from your in-laws during the wedding, do not take the risk of depending solely on that one box. What if you do not find it the next morning, post your marriage? Carry a liquid sindoor bottle with you to be on the safer side as that is your suhaag ki nishani!

#9. Non-traditional jewellery

You cannot always wear your diamonds and other precious stones to every occasion. So, make sure you buy pretty jhumkas, kundan earrings, some stone neck pieces and maang tikkas. You can also buy a kamarband to wear with your low waist sarees.

Nothing complements your body, however slim or not it may be, the way these do. Just team it up with a casual t-shirt and chic flats and you are ready to roll.

#11. Basic shades of lip colours, kohl and eyeshadows

Do not waste your money to buy unnecessary makeup items just because you are the bride. Half of the things you buy will not even be touched by you, and before you know it, their expiry date will be flashing before your eyes. Just carry a few basic shades of lipsticks, eyeshadows and kohl pencils that suit your skin type and complexion. You can always buy more products if you run short of them ever!

#12. Little black dress

For your honeymoon, your clubbing night outs, and those romantic candle light dinners, you will need this beauty to woo your husband and leave him completely awestruck. And as they say, you can never go wrong with that little black dress and red peeptoe heels!

#13. Swimwear

Because you will surely need it for your honeymoon and you can buy a costume as revealing or hot as you want it to be as it will be just the two of you on your lovey-dovey vacation!

#14. Statement rings

And lastly, here are some tips on how to go about your trousseau shopping:

  • As exciting as putting together your own wedding trousseau might sound, try not to over-shop and over-spend.
  • Pack what is necessary, since what is not can always be bought later on.
  • Only go for things that you are sure you will use.
  • Always go shopping with a person who will guide you well, preferably your mother or sister.
  • Do a market survey beforehand. Check online shopping stores as well as they offer great discounts and provide home delivery as well as easy return policies
  • Shop according to the weather you are getting married in and not the weather you are shopping in.
  • Buy things that are low maintenance and do not need dry cleaning after every use.
  • Make a budget and try sticking to it
  • The annual sale time should be your shopping time.
