A NEVER ENDING STORY
Bride you look beautiful;
Cast your fears aside.
Today you will shine
As the brightest star.
With a heart full of love,
A trousseau full of affection,
You will take a selfless step.
Safely, into the arms of your one true love.
As children, we were awed by weddings. The whole affair of our relatives getting married and elder siblings and cousins playing an important role in arranging the grand affair was an exhilarating experience. Even as children, we did not fail to notice the to-be-wed's apprehensions, their happiness, their confidence, and their pain; the perfect mix of which left a residue worth remembering for a lifetime.
No matter what you wear or what jewellery you adorn on that special day, you will only look your best, when you are assured by the heart.
Everything else will only glorify the beauty, which has always been there.
So, stay calm and take a deep breath. You are about to embark on a journey that will give you a thrilling ride for a lifetime.
Here's to a new beginning, just keep reading....
Mirrors that sparkle: A very different choice for a bridal is the dress with mirror-work instead of the traditional metal and crystal toned embroidery. The colours used remain traditional, with the motifs being the refreshing twist. Glass bangles and minimalistic jewellery bring the look together with finesse.
Quite unusual: The traditional red partnered with a shade of deep pastel green, considered quite a statement choice for brides, helps one stand out. The alpona on the forehead, fresh flowers in her updo, and the choice of a statement set of jewellery pieces brings the whole ensemble together.
The weight of traditions: A very traditional bridal ensemble, apart from the milieu of multiple strands and pieces of metallic jewellery cluttering the wearer. The very delicate "alpona" design on the forehead adds a bit of extra oomph.
Bright and lovely: A very upbeat bridal, in bright shades of pink and orange, with delicate embellishments, a simple hair do, and a demurely sprawled dupatta, brings together a traditional yet unique bridal ensemble. Minimal jewellery keeps it breathable on the wearer as well.
Earthy panache: A simple saree in earthen tones, jazzed up with a pop of colour courtesy of the contrasting blouse and glass bangles. The flowers add a festive flair around her updo, further beautified by the standout jhumar (jhapta).
Pretty in pink: The beautiful jamdani is intricately woven, traditional motifs displayed in delicate splendour. The choice of not wearing some key pieces of jewellery generally worn by brides, like the tikli, is making all the other pieces stand out even more.
A burst of colours: The very non-traditional ensemble, with floral printed bottom piece, with an intricately embroidered top and dupatta-- a complete contrast within the dress itself. The choker neck piece helps subtly bring it all together, by complimenting the floral.
Deep purple: A very different colour choice for the bride, in deep purple contrasted with pastel green, is further enhanced by two standalone jewellery pieces, each in a different style, yet working to bring the whole look together.
A soothing orange: The soft orange monochrome saree, interwoven with ample gold as most bridal wear is, remains understated and elegant. The accents of green in the jewellery add a nice contrast, as the choker neckpiece maintains simplicity, and the intricate head ornament adds the requisite bridal flair.
A pleasant shock: Shocking pink is a colour both bold yet demure, especially when resplendent with interwoven gold of a traditional benarasi. The perfectly matching set of gold jewellery is also bold, yet with clean lines, creating a great balance.
Royalty in the hills: The traditional garb of the indigenous bride, the particular skirt, the drape of the shawl, and the familiar yet special weaving technique, in golden splendour especially for the bride. Keeping on point is the bead based jewellery, with limited metal pieces on the wrists, a very delicate "nath", a quintessentially bridal nose-ring.
Blue and bold: Deep blue rarely brings the blues it is associated with, and is perfectly suitable for the bride who likes to be different. The jewellery is also unique, making a statement of its own, yet with an ethnic touch.
