Saree gowns have been the latest fad among brides. The convenience and elegance are the most important reasons for which they prefer this outfit. It gives you the elegance of a saree, without having to drape the cloth around. The comfort and grace of a gown makes it a perfect fusion outfit for any bride. We have seen Shilpa Shetty adorning this style a number of times. Look how elegantly actress Evelyn Sharma sashayed down the ramp in a silver Sonaakshi Raaj outfit. It showed off her curves to perfection.
Another latest trend in saree draping is to drape it over pants. Many Bollywood celebs like Sonam Kapoor and Dia Mirza have been spotted wearing these at various occasions. We thought that every bride needs to embrace this trendy outfit for a smashing bridal trousseau. A unique piece is the Archana Kochhar saree over pants with shirt-style blouse. Have a look at this maroon drape saree with lace trouser pants and full sleeve blouse from Rabani & Rakha.
Crop tops have taken the fashion world by storm and we see everybody wearing one. Why not try the crop top trend with a heavily embroidered lehenga? Unique and fun, isn’t it? Exactly what these awesome designers are doing to rock the ramp! Have a look at this beautiful outfit by Falguni and Shane Peacock at BMW India Bridal Fashion Week 2014. We also love this heavy bridal Anju Modi ensemble for Delhi Couture Week 2014. We love Aditi Rao Hydari in this crop top and lehenga ensemble from Payal Singhal's collection! Every bride needs to add this trend to her bridal trousseau right away!
We have already seen the trend coming in with adorned jackets worn along with your lehenga. The latest fad is to substitute your lehenga blouse for a fitted jacket. Would that look boxy and stuffed? Would that be bridal? Well, have a look at these beautiful ensembles to judge it yourself to see if you can carry off this killer trend. This one is a sure head-turner. The first ensemble is by Shruti Sancheti for Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2014. We also loved this embroidered piece by Krishna Mehta. Jacqueline Fernandez is rocking the look in this Manish Malhotra outfit!
Another big trend that has the ladies swooning is the peplum tops. Why not try something fun by combining your peplum style with Indian saree? That would be fun for sure! Spotted way back at the Anju Modi WIFW A/W show in 2012, we loved the trend right away. Have a look at this wonderful ensemble by designer Kanika Saluja at the grand finale of WIFW 2014. We think this trend would look lovely in a bridal trousseau. You can go for a fusion saree gown with peplum as well, just like Aashka Goradia here!
Thought corsets are a thing only for the gowns? We insist you try combining the corset style blouses with your lehenga or saree as well. They look absolutely gorgeous! Have a look at Sophie Choudry wearing a dazzling crystal and gold corset, lehenga and dupatta on the ramp showing off Mandira Wirk’s glamorous bridal collection at the Amby Valley India Bridal Fashion Week. We also think you should take inspiration from the The 'Mulmul Masquerade' collection by Rohit Bal, at India Bridal Fashion Week 2013. Kareena Kapoor is looking like a golden goddess in this Shantanu and Nikhil corset saree.
One of the oldest ways of wearing a saree is making a huge comeback this season. Wearing a dhoti style saree will surely get you a lot of attention. Every bride loves the attention she gets and this one will ensure that. Pair it with a jacket or peplum top and you will have a unique style to yourself. Look at this powder blue dhoti saree by Sonaakshi Raaj and fall in love with its elegance. One cannot simply ignore the grace a bride would have wearing such an ensemble by Tarun Tahiliani in mustard. Sonam Kapoor, who happens to have rocked the dhoti saree look on several occasions is looking stunning in this black and white Tarun Tahiliani number. Every bride would look gracious in these dhoti sarees.
We have already told you how trendy the dhoti sarees are. Now, we think you should go a step further and pair a long jacket with dhoti pants. This comfortable fashion statement is right off the ramp, and it will make sure your bridal trousseau is the talk of the town! Check out this exquisite embroidered soft blue long kurta with dhoti pants by Anju Modi, showcased at India Couture Week 2014. We also love how Anju Modi put together this royal bridal wear with gold embellishments all over for the same show. Such a sight! You can take oodles of inspiration from this really sophisticated Neeta Lulla ensemble Esha Gupta is wearing.
Every bride wants to be the centre of attraction and these unique fusion ensembles will ensure she shines bright.
