We all know fabrics can make the biggest difference and since these are the hotter months you want to keep it sheer, flowy and breezy! Opt for airy fabrics like chiffon, organza, net, crepe and georgette for the more intimate functions. Pick a banarsi which might look heavy and regal but is much lighter than other fabrics. We would advise you to steer clear of velvets and raw silks.
Give the rich maroons, blues and greens a miss and rather opt for pretty summer hues and pastels that are refreshing to see and feel light too! Shades like lilac, mint, seafoam, millennial pinks, peaches and greys are all the rage for 2018. Coordinate with the best wedding planners in India to make sure the decor compliments these unexpected yet gorgeous shades.
Work and Embroidery
Give the epic zardozi work a miss for summers, instead go for gota patti, threadwork or even printed bridal lehengas, which look spectacular! Mirror work and floral embroidery on pastels are super trending this year, so maybe step out of the box to give these a try?
Start by think if you really do need that second dupatta, if you do, keep it super delicate! Forget the heavy dupattas and give a refreshing touch with printed, leheriya or net dupattas to keep the outfit fresh.
Extras: Customized Lehengas are Big
Words, designs, ideas – you name it. Brides nowadays are personalizing everything. You could have artfully embroidered names, special dates and anniversaries, instead of just the casual customizations like latkans and laces. The best wedding planners in India will add personal touches that match the outfit to the decor as well.
Layering loads and loads of jewellery isn’t advisable for summer, stick to statement pieces or light layered jewellery. Beaded jewellery goes well with more delicate fabrics. Stick to either a maangtikka, mathapatti, or a jhoomer, not any more than one! For the smaller functions work with one piece of jewellery like a statement earring. Remember, in the summers, less is always more.
