For an entire bridal ensemble to look perfect, every minute element of the attire should be balanced and primarily aid in boosting the bride’s natural beauty. From jewellery, makeup, shoes and accessories, everything should be represented in sheer perfection.
Among these, the one other thing that gets the maximum attention within a bridal outfit is the choice of dupatta that the bride opts for. Traditionally, a dupatta is believed to add great grace and make the bride look almost regal. With so many options of 'dupattas' available, have a look at some of the gorgeous-looking styles for brides to choose from.
A ‘jaal’ design is similar to a checkered style, the only difference being the squares thus formed are highly embellished with sequence and thread work. These can also be customised into pentagonal or diamond-shaped ‘jaal’ work and is completed with a heavily laced border. It makes the bridal silhouette even firmer.
One of the most chosen styles by celebs, a scalloped design in the bridal dupatta gives a regal vibe to the outfit. It primarily makes the dupatta appear broad in the seam, and when worn by the bride, it makes the outfit seem heavy and royal. For the brides who opt for simple wedding attire, the scalloped dupatta enhances its look manifold.
Skipping aside something traditional, brides can opt for something classy and modern by styling their outfits with a borderless dupatta. Bringing in a slight Indo-western fusion to the outfit, these resemble to a veil from a white-wedding and add a soft glow to the bridal look. Combined with minimal jewellery and a prominent lip shade, the bride looks simply ethereal.
For the bride who wishes to look her very traditional best in every manner possible, a hand-woven banarasi dupatta is sure to steal their hearts. Giving off a gorgeous shine and bright colour, these enhance even a simple outfit and makes it even more noticeable. Moreover, its brilliant glow and minute detailing help to give the bride a warmer and more grounded aura. Therefore, it serves the desire for a truly traditional look.
Another classic choice that adds a lot of glamour to the bridal outfit is a zardozi dupatta. Traditionally known to hold a special place in the hearts of countless women, the zardozi design adds a lot of weight to the ensemble and makes it look all the more aesthetic. Its woven designs add volumes of beauty to the bride and make the outfit appear strikingly distinct from the rest.
Fusing shades from a similar colour palette, the ombre dupattas are a recent addition to the world of fashion for brides. Appealing to a softer fashion sensibility, these add a new flavour to the traditional bridal deck-up. For brides who desire a pastel wedding, these styles are a true match, as it reflects a contemporary bridal style.
Going absolutely desi in the bridal look, brides can opt for a floral, or a phulkari styled dupatta. It brings in an aesthetic mix of threadwork, beadwork and lace. A style originating from the states of Uttar Pradesh and Punjab, these are heavily embellished throughout. It simply styles the final bridal look in the most beautiful manner ever.
To give the bridal look an entirely new change, an applique-work dupatta appeals to the artistic senses of the bride. With a beautiful and heavy design of floral appliques and embellished sequence work, it takes up the beauty of the bridal look to the top-notch. Not to forget, the rich lace borders add to the beauty of this dupatta.
