It is wedding season again! Wedding fashion has taken a 360 degree turn with contemporary designs, unconventional dressing taking precedence over traditional designs. Brides aren’t the only ones to opt for something unconventional, grooms are experimenting too.
Typically, an Indian wedding palette or bridal trousseau consists of red and other traditional/conventional colours. In some parts of the country, brides are required to wear white, yellow or green coloured Indian wedding dresses or saris (at least during the main ceremony). However, we have been seeing many unconventional wedding colours this year. These go to show that Indian brides are not afraid to experiment when it comes to their wedding fashion. Many top fashion designers like Sabyasachi Mukherjee and Rohit Bal have also displayed bold and unique Indian wedding dresses at prominent fashion shows held in 2013. In fact; we received many real wedding submissions which depicted this trend of unconventional Indian wedding colours in not just the bride’s but the groom’s apparel as well.
Benefits of choosing unconventional or non-traditional Indian wedding dresses and colours:
- When you choose unconventional Indian wedding dresses or saris, you can wear them on many different occasions and not just in weddings. For example, if you are attending a sangeet or mehendi function for your friends or even an extravagant Birthday party, you can still wear these colours and not worry about looking like a bride. This can help you save money; we all know how expensive Indian wedding dresses can be and the fact that you can wear them over and over on various occasions can help you make the most of your money spent.
- Unconventional Indian wedding dresses also help you conform to specialized wedding themes. For example, if you plan on getting married at the beach you can choose blue, aqua, or other unconventional shades that are reminiscent of the sea. You can also choose to colour coordinate with your groom!
- Brides getting married in the hotter months can choose lighter fabrics and colours to keep cool rather than choosing traditional bright, heavy or dark coloured dresses.
- And finally: you get to wear something you love! An unconventional wedding dress that is custom made to your preference and in accordance with your style is sure help make you stand out on your special day.
