The great Indian wedding season is here. The to-be-brides are frantically shopping for their trousseau, booking appointments with the makeup artists, shortlisting the mehndi designs, checking on the wedding venue and busy sending out the invitations to their friends/ loved ones. They have probably also finalized on the bridal lehenga for the D-day. But, the great Indian wedding is incomplete without the pre-bridal functions and the post-wedding reception party. This means a bride needs to typically have 3 (minimum) outfits for these special occasions.

1. Silk saree with a modern twist: This Fall/Winter, designer – Wendell Rodricks showcased a range of Indian handloom inspired traditional silk sarees with a modern twist. Splendid navy, maroons, and dull reds paired with cape blouses, halter necks and what not! The representation of a young, modern-age bride can’t be portrayed any better than this. If this style captivates you, then pick up a beautiful Benarsi or Chanderi silk with heavy golden/silver border. Team it up with a sexy blouse and look sultry-hot on your wedding reception party.
2. Saree gown: Lehenga sarees are already the popular choice among brides for the pre-wedding functions such as engagement party or off-beat weddings. This year, lehenga saree gets tweaked further. Dash of modern styling to a lehenga-saree can amp up the fashion statement of an Indian modern bride when she will sport a new look wearing a saree gown. Be it a mermaid-style lehenga or a layered style lehenga without the dupatta, saree gown is the trendiest attire to wear this wedding season!
3. Pre-draped and concept sarees: Other than saree-gowns and sarees with cape blouses, concept sarees are also catching the attention of today’s bride. It is the hottest outfit being discussed in the fashion industry. Concept sarees are nothing but a pre-draped version which is also called as a dhoti saree, or a saree-dress. Even designers such as Ritu Kumar and Nikhil Thampi are getting inspired by this amazing Indo-western fusion concept. They are going all out and coming out with their own improvised version such as- draping a saree with it’s sheer fabric around the waist and sometimes with a slit, pairing saree with leggings, scarves, and trousers and also contrasting colors and a mix of fabrics. Such a boho-chic appeal to this concept. Isn’t it?
4. Saree with jacket style blouse: For brides who are weather-conscious, here is a reason to rejoice. Designers have especially got you a jacket style blouse to flaunt with your sexy saree. A phulkari jacket-blouse to go with ombre colored saree or a long sleeve blouse, the kurta blouse, the long kurta jacket and the Nehru jacket with heavily embroidered saree on your wedding reception party!
