Are you an inspired bride-to-be who would love to plan your own wardrobe? Congratulations on getting the first step right! After all, being your own designer and planner will help you make the exact choices you need without anyone influencing your tastes.
Though it is a lot of hard work – planning and designing your outfits, accessories, sticking to your budget, endless visits to your tailor and boutiques…the praise you receive from your guests will make it all completely worthwhile.
Remember these important steps as you plan the perfect trousseau for your wedding reception.
Sticking to a Budget:
Plan out your budget on how much you will be spending on clothes, tailors and designers. Do not forget to include costs of all other stuff like accessories, footwear and so on.
Choose your outfits according to the weather
Summer Wedding Reception:
Are you a summer bride? It’s important to stay cool and at the same time, show off your fabulous style. The best outfit would be a fluid silhouette lehenga for wedding reception with crop top, halter necks and spaghetti tops. Wedding lehenga designs can be chosen from sites like Pinterest which give you a fair idea of what you can expect.
You can also mix n’ match by trying evening gowns with ethnic prints. The classic Indian style with a western fusion is so in! Embellishments like Swarovski will add glamour to your wedding gown.
A saree is the most powerful outfit you can drape at your reception. If possible, choose fabrics like cotton which help your skin breathe easy and are light and comfortable. You can also choose designer party sarees that are ideal for summers. Go for cool tones like ivory, dusky pink and neons which look fabulous in summer.
Winter Wedding Reception
Winter brides have the liberty to choose all the above! They can opt for bright colors like red, maroon etc. You can opt for full sleeve blouses with your saree and lehenga. Royal jackets will also add that elegant touch to your lehengas.
Trendy Hairdos to Rock your Reception
Be prepared beforehand and remove all the frizz and crumpled messes. Opt for buns and braids in summer so that your hair would not be falling all over you. Winter brides have more choice for their reception ranging from bumped up curls to messy tiara braids.
Since most receptions take place at night, you can add more bright colors and neon shades and keep your makeup base heavy. Go for smoky eyes or heavy eye makeup in winter and cool climates. In summer, keep away from cream based foundations.
Remember, at the end of the day, it’s important to choose the right outfit, makeup and hairdo that suit your skin tone and the weather. Now you are all set to rock your reception.
