Wedding season is arriving fast; and its footsteps are already being heard with all the exciting bridal fashion shows that are taking place all over the country. Well, we always work towards making sure that you stay up-to-date with all the latest bridal trends that are setting the ramp on fire.
So, dear brides-to-be get ready as we bring to you stunning trends to inspire your look from the Indian Bridal Fashion Week 2014. Here are the amazing ideas that some of the best and the hottest fashion designers of the country have presented at this year’s show.
1. Rich colours and Mirror work:
Suneet Varma got inspired from the rich hand-painted architecture of Shekhawati– a region in Rajasthan. The collection brought forth vibrant hues of red and fuchsia perfect for a bride. Showstopper Kangana Ranaut’s deep red saree with an embroidered bustier and a velvet dupatta was every inch of glamorous. Kangana Ranaut walks ramp in Suneet Varma’s stunning creation. Well, you can certainly give the choli a few tweaks to give it a slightly more conservative look, if you want.
Mirror work is an intelligent kind of look to embrace because it is fun, fashionable, flirty and ideal for a pre-wedding function as it is lightweight too. More mirror work ideas from Suneet Varma‘s bridal collection for this season. The rich, bright colours are an icing on the cake.
2. Golden Bride:
Amidst the vibrant oranges and reds that are always dominating the wedding season, there is a simple and seductive gold. There is every reason to glitter in a gold outfit by Tarun Tahiliani on your wedding, as it is a welcomed change from the bright hues. Tarun Tahiliani loves golden colour, and that is quite evident from his bridal collection this season.
Also, it gives you immense flexibility to decide on your jewellery as anything under the sun is going to match with the outfit- think rubies, emeralds, and polki. More golden ideas from Tarun Tahiliani’s collection that will make any bride go weak on her knees.
3. Statement Gowns:
Away from the ethnic Indian wear, a bride-to-be also needs an amazing dress or a gown that is just made for her to own for her bachelorette or cocktail function. The designer duo Gauri and Nainika presented flowing materials, big ruffles, asymmetrical hemlines, cutaway sides and bold colours that are enough to help you rule the night.
Off-beat yet gorgeous is what everyone will say when you enter the wedding in any of these beautiful designs by Gauri and Nainika. Styling such a gown is not difficult. Just choose a bold lip colour, pin up your hair neatly, and choose neutral pumps, so that everyone can keep their focus more on the outfit.
4. High on Colour:
Blue is an unusual choice for bridal wear. But, it looks ravishing for more reasons than one. Pick this unusual tone and add more colours like red, orange, maroon, gold and more to achieve a glamorous look like the one presented by Ashima Leena’s Jashn Bridal Collection. The colourful bodice of a suit is an instant hit as everybody is so bored of a single colour suit. Blue certainly would cut a royal image if you don a design by designer duo Ashima and Leena.
The cholis were really deep at the back, which emerged as another key trend this season as well. While it is a good idea to steer away from a plunging neckline on your functions, revealing your back a little can add the touch of glamour to your look.
5. Jacket Blouse:
Shraddha Kapoor teams her yellow and orange JJ Valaya saree with a gilded jacket blouse. We also spotted jackets being worn over a suit and a long jacket paired with a lehenga. Shraddha Kapoor looks beautiful in JJ Valaya creation.
Thus, it seems that the idea of teaming up a suit, saree or lehenga with a jacket is here to stay. So, get experimental and work the trend. Jackets, jackets, and more jackets- definitely seems like a trend a bride must consider investing in.
6. Cape Affaire:
It will be fair to say that Sonam Kapoor was the first one to be spotted wearing a cape over her saree at Cannes. Now, designer Jyotsna Tiwari paired a translucent cape over a beautiful gown that made it look like a million bucks. Esha Gupta looks as graceful and elegant as the gown designed by Jyotsna Tiwari.
Such an outfit seems ideal for your cocktail, engagement or reception party and we are sure you will be able to pull off the cape trend with great aplomb. Another cape-designed gown by Jyotsna Tiwari.
7. Draped Saree:
An ideal piece for your trousseau would be a pre-draped saree that is beautiful, high on bling and easy-to-wear for any upcoming festivity or wedding. Here are some amazing pre-stitched sarees by fashion designer Jyotsna Tiwari. As you need to create a good mix of outfits, be sure to take this one with you.
It will also come really handy when going for a destination wedding. We are sure you are going to be a stunning bride and steal a lot of hearts on your wedding day after you embrace the latest bridal trends of 2014. -yahoo
