When I got married, I chose pastel colors for all of my outfits. I think my mom is still not over the fact that I refused to wear red even though it’s been three years since I got married. The South Asian/Indian bride is evolving and so is her style. There has been an influx of global celebrities such as Kim K and Beyoncé gracing magazine covers wearing Indian designers. Whether it’s a classic traditional look by Sabyasachi or a glam feather look by Falguni Shane & Peacock, the Indian bride has more choices now than ever before to make sure her wedding day looks reflect who she is.
“The Indian bride is evolving and so is her style.”
Accessories can really elevate a bridal look to the next level. I love a statement clutch that stands out and belts that hold dupattas in place. And of course Louboutins are always a great shoe choice for a pop of red especially in photos! When it comes to makeup, I would take a smokey eye with a dusty rose lip over the usual darker colors. Kundan jewelry has been my favorite from when I was a child going to jewelry stores with my mother. I loved Deepika Padukone’s wedding jewels, the Kundan craftsmanship on her jewels were exquisite. I think more brides nowadays are staying true to their own personal style and preferences rather than the traditional norms which is amazing because it results in so many beautiful and unique looks. – Rohma Siddiqui
