Traditionally half saree is worn in South India. But, today, half sarees have become essential part of the bridal trousseau. Brides want to replicate Deepika Padukone and Alia’s half saree look from ‘Chennai Express’ and ‘2 States’. And this is not just in South India; the traditional outfit is now hot all over India and is being increasingly worn by brides across all cultures.
Indian weddings are known all over the world for their splendour and glamour. And it is always the brides that are talked about. Nowadays, it is not just the brides who indulge in traditional finery and are hands on the latest trends in wedding wear; the grooms too are equally particular.
I remember introducing royal blue colour in Delhi during a show and a lot of people opted for it for the reception. The colours that brides should opt for this season are orange, pink and tones of red like blood red; basically young and warm colors. In short, they should try colors that lend a glow to their faces.
Making the most
With so many events attached to a wedding, brides indulge themselves with a variety of looks – Glamorous for the Sangeet, youthful and colourful for the reception, traditional for the wedding, western for the sit down dinner and rich fabrics, elaborately embroidered ghagras, lehengas and sarees for the reception.
Fauxpas of season
For some reason gowns have caught up with the weddings. Almost all the brides are opting for gowns for the cocktail dinners. Sometimes even the mothers of the brides want to wear a gown. Not everyone can carry the gown well. I try to convince them that their figure may not fit or look pretty. When they don’t listen to me, I just say that I don’t design gowns.
Future is in getting back to tradition. I have noticed that already many youngsters prefer to go traditional, be it the décor, the trousseau or the look. There are also couples preferring intimate and small weddings vis a vis big fat weddings.
