But the modern bride is also very daring. She has the option of sticking to traditions or seeking inspiration from the latest trends.

Let us see what is hot for 2012 as far as the Indian bridal wear scenario is concerned.

Colours-Purples, pinks, burnt orange ,lime green, midnight blue, fuchsia, lavender etc are most definitely ‘in’- even Bollywood queen Kareena Kapoor chose a simple yet elegant Manish Malhotra creation in pink for her reception ceremony.

Brides are not afraid of experimenting with styles and colours

Styles-Modern brides can choose to make a style statement with tight fitting anarkali suits or lehengas. A layered look is one that you simply cannot go wrong with-multi-layered velvet outfits with brocade designs are certainly the ‘in thing’. Full sleeves, especially sheer sleeves are in vogue- The Lakme Fashion Week 2012 showcased several creations with such sleeves. Additionally, there is definitely a trend of East meeting west as more and more Indian designers are experimenting with Lehengas that look like western bridal wear. The result: fishtail or mermaid style lehengas and trail Lehengas. These styles are definite winners in creating a feminine, elegant and a classy look.

Fishtail Lehengas and Sheer Sleeves are the in thing!

Mix n’ match-Brides are also not scared of “mixing and matching”. The trend is to purchase the ‘must have’ golden Choli which can be paired with literally hundreds of styles and shades! For the Sangeet or the Mehendi ceremony, a bride can wear the Choli with a Georgette sari or for the main wedding ceremony one can combine it with heavier and richer fabrics.
