It has to be big fat and pompous wedding if it is happening in India. Are you sure? Yeah, of course. Please don’t blame only Punjabi mundas and kudis for being too loud in their weddings because there are a lot of chaos and hubbub you can enjoy in other regional marriages as well. Stunned!?
Have you ever visited Bengali weddings where ‘ulu’ resonation can make you forget you have ears!? The wedding procession of Keralite is worth watching with larger than life tents, bhoj or feast and elephants. Nothing less than a King! There are many and I cannot mention them one by one in this single blog because it hurts – my fingers and taste buds are aching girls!
And in all of them, choosing the wedding costume is the most hectic one. Here we will direct you from the top to the bottom, from lehenga to suits and of course jewellery as a mandatory inclusion – how to choose them -
Let’s come to the body shape of the bride and this is the thing which can make you feel conscious and proud at any time. Especially in your D-day! Start your workout sessions not just for abs but for a toned fitted body, perfect for flaunting. So, here are the quick shots for the major body shapes:
Lehenga & Saree – Perfect For Curves
Be it a saree or lehenga or any other naval showing apparel from the women dressing couture, understanding your body becomes very important.
Triangular – When you have smaller or narrow bust line and have fuller hips, you can go proudly with sarees. Pick out double padded blouses with princess cut; it will amp the look of your lehenga and saree in an instant.
Inverted Triangle - When you have fuller or plump bust line and have comparatively small hips, the body shape is then called inverted triangle. Avoid body shaper petticoats in sarees and choose cotton petticoats for a fuller form. In lehengas, you can be on a safe side with double can-cans.
Hourglass – Do you really need to think after having this? Well, let me tell you that the tabooistic- 36-24-36 is a myth and will look horrible in real life; I mean just imagine!!! Better to have normal proportions like 32-28-32 and related figures can be said hourglass. Girls, you are born to taste every kind of fashion. So, go and get a wide trial!
Rectangular – Wear boxy blouses and try to drape the pallu in a slanting position from the abdomen to the naval area for a pseudo curvy appeal.
Salwar Suit – A Word To Traditional Wears
Salwar suit is the major choice among Pakistani brides and they slay it like a complete diva. Any doubt? Let’s scroll to have a perfect pick for your body shape;
Triangular – Though long Anarkali is the main traditional pick with which you can experiment with its height and width as well to complement your body shape. Check out an Anarkali which will get free from just below the bust line.
Inverted Triangle – Check out an Anarkali which will get free from the waist line and will amazingly complement your body shape.
Hourglass – Go for fishtail Anarkalis to flaunt your perfect figure among the attendees and relatives. Let them go green!
Rectangular – a regular Anarkali or layered one will absolutely go with the curves.
While many go with the traditional red or maroon colour, a contemporary bride will definitely wish to go with randomness. This blog will help you to do the same without stopping at the bar of skin colour or complexion. Always pick out the colour of your bridal outfit according to your skin tone otherwise the wrong one can spoil your entire look. Don’t be a confused soul and hop in;

Fair- Avoid wearing too dark because it will mute the natural glow of your skin. It’s your D-day; so wear any bright and happy such as orange, yellow, fuchsia and related.
Dark- You are born to make a sexy remark; so, you have to think a little bit more while wearing too bright like neons! Go for deep colours; it will bring out the sensuousness in you.
Olive- This is one of the fave complexions that I can pick out for myself. (If God had given me that chance!) Don’t think much and give a try to any of the colours from the palette. If you have a longer torso then better to experiment with short lehenga blouses.
Saree – A Colourful Drape
The sexiest drape in all over the world – saree is a versatile piece in a woman’s wardrobe that receives different attitude by different women.

Sarees will amazingly complement your height whether you’re petite or extremely tall. A little dilemma can occur in wearing lehengas! Have a look:
Petite – You should put on something that can create height and does not make you appear smaller. A lehenga or saree showing the midriff a little can make you pose for the right click of the day. Go for a lightweight outfit because that won’t cling to your body. Avoid using too much can-can.
