While small intimate weddings is what has taken over the Indian wedding industry, but Indian brides have been seen going into full-blown maximalism. With less budget allotted towards guests and a large venue, more has been given to the bride’s outfit. Indian brides will be seen sporting some playful twists on long-time classics this year. Traditionally, Indian brides wear the sacred color of red, which is still my favorite color for a bride, however today’s modern bride is seen donning in bright fuscia, shades of emerald and yellow – which is the colour of 2021.
So, lets see the points that will set the summer bridal trends of 2021:
- Colour: The pantone colour for this year is ultimate gray and yellow! Designers have been more supportive of colours that can move from a day to a night function or from your wedding to your post wedding party. Infact, taking a break from the monotone bridal lehengas, brides are going to be considering more color-block options this year. Subtle pastels with brighter colours will be the core inspiration of this color block trend. Manish Malhotra said you can spot this concept in his collections which will beautifully blend different cultures in a bride’s outfit. Like taking the vibrancy from Punjab and mixing it with the opulence of the Mughal era along with the serenity of pastels.
- Peplum style: Though this trend has been seen since couple of years now, but it has taken a more serious prominence this year. Peplum bridal lehengas are fun, comfortable and look good on all body types. One of the best ways to pick a peplum lehenga would be to simply pick the one which has a lot of heavy embroidery on it. Heavy embroidery will help the peplum fall beautifully, but if you aren’t a fan of heavy peplums, then you can also try them with simpler lehenga’s or even long peplum lehenga’s. If you are a bride on a shopping spree, you have already been spotting this trend everywhere from Rimple and Harpreet Narula to Ridhi Mehra to Papa Don’t Preach.
- Exagerrated Sleeves: This year brings a lot of opportunity for brides to experiment. In terms of blouses, you can expect a lot of exaggerated sleeves. Be it in modern cuts, pearls or off-shoulder blouse with tassles covering your arms from Suneet Verma or a fully embellished long blouse sleeve design with colourful beads and pearls from Tarun Tahiliani, they are all about adding luxurious feel to the blouse. If traditional embellishments aren’t your thing, then add voluminous sleeves are perfect to add the drama without the weight and the poking of beads.
- Different silhouettes for different functions: From the very beginning I have always said that try to keep all your wedding function looks different so you don’t look like you are carrying a similar look in all your functions. Indian brides have so many silhouette options to choose from, like your anarkali to your lehenga’s to your sharara’s, sarees, gowns etc. If you are confused about which silhouette for which function, then first define your themes for each function, which makes it easier to visualize your look and hence your silhouette. Apart from your silhouette, you can also experiment with different fabrics this year without risking your look. Eg. If you’re the bride who actually wants to be able to move around and dance comfortably in their outfit, fabrics like chiffon and georgette would be ideal.
- Double dupatta: Double Dupatta is already something we have been seeing since years now, but the long veils is what is going to be the change. Well, this was a trend that was predicted for weddings in 2020 for the brides and since we didn’t have a lot of weddings last year, we see this trend sticking around this year as well. This year, we’ll be seeing a lot of long, trailing head veils. Manish Malhotra’s brand has always been about glamour and drama, and this year that will manifest in the form of sweeping, train-like dupattas atop the head in his collections.
· Even though a wedding outfit is evergreen, it is sometimes nice to mix things up by adding few accents from latest trends in the market
· Different silhouette for each function is important to break the monotony in your wedding outfits
· Double dupatta with long train-like veils for the extra drama is my favourite trend for brides this year
· Drama filled sleeves are all you need for that extra oomph
