The Winter Wedding Series- Indian Winter Bridal Wear

By  | 

The bride is without doubt the star of the evening and there is always much anticipation with regard to what jewellery the bride will wear and also which designer she has chosen. This winter, brides have more reason to smile and be cheerful because winter Indian bridal wear has only become brighter and hotter. We suggest going with festive shades like silver, leaf green, midnight blue and of course a favourite with most Indian brides- red. In the words of Sabyasachi, the famous Indian designer, winter is the right time to wear shades of red that are reminiscent of pomegranates because the pale weather tends to highlight such vibrant colours beautifully. It also goes without saying that red is considered an auspicious shade all over India. Let’s take a look at what Indian winter bridal wear is all about:

If round necks are not really your style, now is the perfect time to go for a choli with a higher collar that is heavily embroidered, which has long sleeves as well as an embroidered skirt and dupatta. Such a look works well for brides who prefer to go with minimum jewellery and instead of wearing a heavy necklace, brides can wear chunky ear-rings which blend well with the rest of the attire. The dupatta can either be draped on one arm or can be worn covering the head as well.

We first spotted the embroidered jacket on the fashion runaway and this year it seems to be making an appearance as part of bridal wear ensemble too. This one is for the Indian bride who likes tradition but prefers to put her own spin on it. The jacket chosen can have sheer sleeves with embroidery or even cap sleeves. The look that works best for Indian winter bridal wear is undoubtedly the full sleeved jacket with ample zardosi work on the sleeves and collar. It eliminates the need for a dupatta too. Brides can choose to go for a crop top that bares the midriff for a sexier look.

For the Indian bride who loves her sarees, we recommend taking a step back in time and wearing an exquisite handloom Banaras saree with gold and silver weaves. In fact, motifs are trending too and if you’re keen to go with designer wear, you’ll find that some of the best names in the world of fashion like Ritu Kumar, Nina Dhaka and Anita Dongre are focusing on reviving some of India’s best known textiles for the modern Indian bride.

We hope you have lots of fun putting together your bridal trousseau. Write in to us with your feedback and comments.
