Top fashion trends for summer weddings for brides
Check out these game-changing trends for your wedding day! In this new year, let the positive vibes of a new beginning knock at your door. You’ll surely be pleased with these bridal styles for parties and weddings if you are a fashionista! Check out these latest fashion trends in India for brides.
1. Anarkali lehenga
Many designers are introducing asymmetrical hemlines and tea-lengths, as well as sheer coverings to bring a millennial touch to lehengas. While the bridesmaids have been wearing these trendy, unconventional styles, brides still prefer traditional Anarkali silhouettes. Wedding lehengas will reflect the same trend. Lehengas with cancan or umbrella cuts can enhance the Anarkali's style, but its general disposition will not change.
2. Pastels all the way
The pastel trend has been around for quite some time and seems to be staying around for the foreseeable future. Every bride wants a pastel pink lehenga after Anushka Sharma wore it to her wedding. Despite her wedding being 4 years ago, pastels and minimalism are still a big yes for wedding outfits. There is no denying it, the colour palette is here to stay.
3. Off-white lehenga
There are typically three colours used for bridal lehengas at Indian weddings: red, pink, and orange. However, over the years, traditions have changed, and so has the mindset of those behind weddings. Because of this, an increasing number of brides are opting for white bridal lehengas for their weddings. They are incredibly charming and would make you look like a dream.
4. Deeper necklines
A deep neckline allows the jewellery to pop out on the big day and prevents the mess on the big day for millennial brides who prefer clean looks. Jewellery is an essential part of any look and a deep neckline will give you the chance to show off your jewellery and make your bridal look pop.
5. Belt it up
Belts are sure to be a big trend for 2022. It is all about cinching the waist. Opt for belts that add a statement and at the same time, give you a polished look. The addition of a belt to an outfit will certainly give it more structure and a neat appearance, whether it's a lehenga, a saree, a suit or an indo-western outfit.
It's a drama-filled season this year, so if you're getting married, a veil is definitely in order. Almost all Bollywood actresses who have got married in the past few years have paired their wedding attire with a veil so that they give off a complete bridal look. You can drape the other dupatta normally and use a different dupatta as your veil.
7. Cape-style dupattas
Adding a little modern twist to your old outfit with cape dupattas is one of the most common trends of 2022. Traditional draping is a thing of the past, now it's all about having fun and playing around with your dupattas. This season the most common style is the cape style. I suggest going for this one at a cocktail or sangeet party rather than on the wedding day.
8. Pre-draped sarees
When you can wear a pre-draped saree, you don't have to spend a lot of time and effort. There are pre-draped saree sets that include both a saree and a blouse, similar to skirt sets.
9. Dramatic sleeves
If you don't like traditional embellishments, a dress with exaggerated sleeves will add a luxurious feel without feeling heavy. This will look rather grand on a sangeet or a cocktail party.
10. Timeless florals
There's nothing better than flower power, and no, we're not complaining! All festive wardrobes, wedding trousseaus, and all festive occasions should include florals, which never go out of style. We'll see floral patterns retaining their glory throughout the wedding season, from floral jaal block prints to hand painted floral patterns to intricately embroidered floral motif designs. The season will be dominated by hand painted lehengas, especially those worn for prewedding functions like haldi, mehndi, or sangeet nights.
