White is a colour synonymous with purity, innocence, simplicity, peace and perfection; qualities of every Indian bride. Somehow, there is still a certain taboo that fogs some minds when it comes to associating the colour white with weddings. Well, with things changing fast, the way brides look at this colour is undergoing a change as well.
In recent years, big fashion designers like Meera and Muzaffar Ali, Manish Malhotra, Rohit Bal and many more have been showcasing bridal wear in colours such as white, ivory and off-white. Well, contemporary Indian brides are now ready to break a few norms to look their stunning best on their wedding day. So, take a look at a few ways how you can style them for your wedding.
Brides today are looking at something that looks stunning, elegant and unique. When it comes to bridal wear, people expect a bride to choose colours like red, maroon, pink, green or gold. A white lehenga is not just a break from tradition, but also a way to grab the maximum eyeballs. It also looks austere, yet so elegant. And, makes a bride stand out for sure.
Gold and silver embroidery, delicate beadwork and Swarovski crystal work can accentuate your white lehenga and take it to an all new level. Besides, if you don’t want to go for pure white, you can opt for shades like pearl white, cream or ivory.
Apart from this, if you do not want to raise too many eyebrows by wearing shades of white at your wedding, then you can add another complementing colour to your ensemble. Pearl white and gold are not just a classic combination, but also a hot favourite with many fashion designers. You can also have a bright colour border (red, blue or rose gold) on your white lehenga, and have a choli in that same colour.
Another thing that you must keep in mind is that white lehengas will make you look a little heavy. That is why; you must opt for figure hugging cuts. But, if you have a slim figure, you can opt for flowing silhouettes, which looks similar to the bridal gown of the west.
