Wedding season is in full swing in this part of the universe, complete with the elaborate flower walls a la Kimye, and fancy finger food. Elsewhere in the world, bridal fashion week finished with many of our favourite designers presenting dreamy creations for every kind of bride-to-be. I’m still waiting for Indian Bridal Week to happen, but in the meanwhile, here are the trends that I found most interesting from the West for all of you getting ready for your own big day in the not-too-distant future.
Capes offer an easy fix to possible modesty concerns, especially if you’re getting married in a religious ceremony.
Go big or go home – yep, I said that! Think tiers, exaggerated draping, big bows, feathers, 3D florals and such. After all, you only plan on doing this once!
Ditch the stark white for colour – if not the whole dress, maybe just the embroidery or the addition of a belt in you theme colour?
Get creative with your necklines – and show off your personal style (and personality) – with a halter, draped backs, collars, straps, plunging and off the shoulder style, rather than the traditional sweetheart or strapless options.
If any day is a good day to embrace sparkle, it would be your wedding day. Tastefully, of course.
Pants – or a jumpsuit – are a sassy and comfortable alternative to a traditional gown – one that will give you the freedom to get down and boogie with the best of them!
If pants are a little too unconventional for you, maybe a mini or tea length dress is more your speed. After all, it is a party!
Well, you’ve slogged for that body – show it off with a sheer or fitted dress, cut outs or perhaps a strategically placed slit.
