What would you advice Brides to think about while choosing their wedding ensemble?

Always buy your jewelry first and co-ordinate clothes and accessories around it. Jewelry is your major investment besides wanting to wear it with other ensembles too.

Go for colours and silhouettes that reflect your personal style & flatter your body type. The modern day bride radiates confidence and that can only happen when you are comfortable in what you wear.

Tips while shopping for trousseau?

The perfect trousseau wardrobe has a mix of ensembles that are trending and classic. Remember trends change and you don’t want to end up with too much stuff that is trending today and may go out of style later. Have a very practical approach while selecting ensembles. Look at colors that you would like to wear often and cuts that are not to over the top as they often look dated later

Watch out for quality and not quantity.

Sari or Lehenga for your wedding day?
The lehenga is traditional and timeless and will never go out of style. It has a more magnanimous and gorgeous appeal and can be made interesting with different drapes.
The Sari on the other hand can add a dash of freshness and work for the bolder, contemporary bride who can carry off a sari with as much ease and elegance. What’s important for a summer bride is to look effortless yet stunning!

How would you go about selecting accessories?
Go with neutral bags and shoes. Always look at usable formal and informal accessories which are more classic rather than fad

The biggest myth related to trousseau shopping?
Buy heavy clothes and heavy accessories, as the trousseau should look presentable

What colours and ensembles do you recommend for different occasions?
Smaller family functions like pujas, get-togethers and other ceremonies like Mata Ki Chowki, one can be bold with colours and silhouettes with minimalistic work.

As the wedding day approaches, for weddings with multiple functions, one should start with lighter hues like neutrals, beige and golds, teamed with lighter jewellery and go heavier and brighter with every next function

Yellow and orange are great for Mehendi, summer hues like mint, lilac and powder pink look elegant for Sangeet/Cocktail.
