Being a bride is every girl's secret dream. From a young age, we have been told that one day our prince will come on a white horse with band-baja and take us away. Even before we started watching fairytale movies, our Indian weddings were enough to give us a taste of what the magic of love is all about. And every bride looked like a celebrity at her wedding, and we all eyed her like a lovestruck kid.
Every wedding we attend, we all take cues from the bride and her look. However, if you are a curvy bride-to-be, the inspiration meter becomes narrow. There are not many options to choose from. So, if you are a plus-size bride, then take out your notepad and get inspired by these plus-size brides who wore gorgeous blouses on their wedding day.
We love this bride, who picked a pastel-hued sea green lehenga with chikankari embroidery and golden work. She picked a round-neck quarter-sleeved blouse to accentuate her look. Another important point we noticed about her choli is that she picked sheer sleeves that featured minimal embroidery. A great way to hide arm fat.
The plus-size bride looked gorgeous in a minimal red Sabyasachi lehenga. However, it was her unique blouse style that won hearts. Most plus-size brides avoid closed-neck blouses, for fear of looking heavier. However, this bride ditched the stereotype as she effortlessly wore a closed-neck blouse with full sleeves.
Plus-size influencer, Sakshi Sindwani has huge followers on her Gram, and she loves smashing stereotypes. Many plus-size brides avoid donning strappy blouses at functions. However, for Karwa Chauth, Sakshi had decked up in a strappy Gujarati printed choli with mirror-work. And oh boy, she looked lovely as she flaunted her curves.
Another bride, another stunning style idea for curvy brides. Off-shoulder blouses are an instant way to add a little drama to your look. We loved how this bride flaunted her curves in an off-shoulder frilled blouse. The material is made from organza fabric, but she styled it beautifully with her whimsical net lehenga.
Most plus-size brides, fear wearing a closed-neck blouse as it makes the bust look heavier. However, this bride gracefully flaunted a closed-neck blouse on her mehendi day. The outfit accentuated her features and didn't make her look heavier.
Television actress, Kishwer Merchant's best friend, Gurneet Chadha had looked nothing less than a Bollywood film star in a criss-cross strappy blouse. The bride looked supremely comfortable in flaunting the risque blouse style on her mehendi night with a sheer cape jacket.
We stumbled upon another plus-size bride who donned a jaw-dropping bouse. She looked simply stunning in a v-neck, dramatic bell-sleeved blouse. The fabric with minimal work was a clever option to keep her look subtle without over boarding it.
After the wedding, Bharti Singh looked graceful, flaunting her curvy figure in an off-shoulder blouse. The highlight of her look was her choli, which featured lace sleeves and tasselled detailing. She styled her look with a heavy flared lehenga with a tulle-styled trail at the back.
South Indian bride looked stunning in a silk saree, which she styled with a contrasting purple-hued blouse. The blouse featured unique cold-shoulder detailing on the sleeves. It instantly added a vibrant touch to her saree.
The curvy bride wore a gorgeous blouse with her ruffled lehenga. The look is perfect for a mehendi ceremony. Her blouse featured a sweetheart neckline and ruffled organza sleeves.
The curvy bride looked radiant in Sabyasachi Mukherjee's handpainted lehenga. Instead of wearing the usual corset choli, the bride opted for a U-neckline blouse, which was made as a crop top and featured a high-waist lehenga.
The bride, Afsana Khan, who is a famous Punjabi singer, donned a beautiful short kurti-style blouse with a wide neck. The blouse also featured zari-embroidery with side-cuts that made her look on point.
We loved these plus-size brides and their spirit of trying chic new blouse styles.
