With larger-than-life celebrations and feelings of love and togetherness, Indian weddings have always been about opulence and spectacles. However, weddings have become more intimate since the pandemic as individuals seek to create more personalized experiences. Ahead I will throw light on some of the biggest and most unconventional bridal fashion trends for 2023.
Pastels and minimalism
Perfect outfits and wedding celebrations go hand in hand. While you can play with the colour palette- right from pretty pastels to bright hues, make sure your outfits are created with airy summery fabrics for summer weddings. With this trend going on for quite a while now, minimal and lighter shades are still a big yes for most brides, and the colour palette is here to stay.
The most crucial step is picking an outfit that makes you feel good so you can enjoy your special day. For this, brides are opting for light or detachable cancans, which means during ceremonies like pheras, they can have an extravagant outfit by adding a cancan and during after-party hours when the bride wants a fuss-free, comfortable look, she can choose to detach the cancan.
Uterly-glam, lightweight and easy breezy outfits are what beach brides are looking for. These outfits so designed, should go very well with the flowy-ness of the whole atmosphere and should be easy to carry, pleasing to the eye and sync with the theme of the beach wedding very well.
Talking about the intricate design of our outfits small weightless pearls have always been a part of our embroidery. I have always incorporated fresh-looking ivory pearls to give the outfit that beautiful and dreamy effect. They can be used anywhere and everywhere, from making the centre of the flower to layering up the whole flower. Pearl work is used to design tassels and weavings of the dupatta and a lot of concentration is done keeping the weight in mind of the outfits.
Drama is in the air this year, and if you’re a bride-to-be then a veil should be on the cards for this season. The veil looks stunning, and it adds value to the whole ceremonial act of the bride walking towards the aisle. Pick a different dupatta to be your veil and drape the other dupatta normally. The summer of 2023 is full of weddings, and I wish all the brides-to-be get their desired stunning and easy-breezy lehengas for their Big day!
