How to dress: For a Wedding
With a list of parties, wedding season can be quite a stressful affair. While you have your sangeet look sorted out, don’t forget to pre-plan for the big day either. Being part of the bridal party means you’ll have to dress the part without upstaging the bride. Vogue.in spoke to bridal wear expert, JJ Valaya to find out the dos and don’ts of wedding dressing.
Look the Part:
This is a fundamental rule as the people often get confused between clothes being too heavy or too light. I personally have only this to say: The art here is to look like a million bucks and create a statement without going overboard. As long as one is elegant, there is absolutely nothing to worry about.
Vogue.in recommends the net-georgette sari by Suneet Varma: the colour and the embroidery will make you feel festive.
Balance the look:
Clothes, Jewelry, Make-up, Hair and accessories are the key components that complete the look. Herein lies the key: balance is the answer so spend some time with your stylist, make-up artist or simply in front of the mirror and simply be honest. Sometimes less is more in this case.
Vogue.in recommends pairing Anamika Khanna’s georgette sari with pearl border with statement earrings to avoid looking over or under dressed.
We practically live our lives and will continue to do so in modern clothes so this is the occasion that'll give you the opportunity to embrace tradition. The notion that you must shake off is that traditional clothes are boring and dated. You can't be further from the truth; in fact, well made traditional clothes with just the right amount of sensuality look breathtaking and are timeless.
Vogue.in recommends the brocade jacket and ghagra c ombo by JJ Valaya to mix the traditional with the contemporary.
Live the moment:
This has more to do with the attitude than the clothes! Remember, it’s also a time for family bonding and celebration, so go ahead and live it up.
Vogue.in recommends the ever classic sari such as this peach number by Kotwara – it’s conservative yet fun.
