Indian Wedding Dress to Remember


Anyone who has attended an Indian wedding will know what a grand event this is – not only for the bride and groom but for the whole community. Being the bride I wanted to look perfect and stun my numerous guests. With any wedding there is a lot to think about and to prepare for but with an Asian wedding the list is tenfold.

Family and friends are very important for this big day and I could not have organised and planned the wedding without them. My main duty was to ensure I turned up looking beautiful and elegant. Indian wedding dresses are totally different from Western bridal gowns. They are usually typically and traditionally white, however, with Indian bridal gowns the more colourful the better. Sarees are the typical wear and I wanted to keep my outfit as traditional as possible but with a modern edge.

Bridal gowns worn for Indian weddings usually consist of red and gold and are a three piece – the top, long skirt and the shawl which is usually put over one shoulder. I was lucky enough to have my Auntie to help design my dress. The dresses in the shops are gorgeous but I wanted mine to be unique so it was great that I was able to design my own and have my own personal touch to the gown.

My main decision was how bright was I going to go with my outfit? With Indian weddings there are no limits and colour represents different aspects of the marriage. Mostly colour represents emotion and the extravagance of the day. Along with my bright, sophisticated outfit I wanted to make sure that the delicate gold jewellery complimented me and the outfit.

Once I had decided on my outfit and was happy with the design I then had the task of finding the accessories to match. As the day and ceremony is very long I wanted to wear shoes that were of comfort. I know this was being a little sensible but I didn’t want to spend the day in agony. I did want the shoes to still be ones of fashion and to match perfectly with my dress. As the main colour of my dress was red and I had delicate golden embroidery I went for golden platforms. They were open toed and I made sure my nails were beautifully painted and pedicured.

As my dress was fairly simple in design I was able to be quite daring when choosing my bag for the big day. I had my best friend on duty for touching up the make-up but I still wanted to carry some with me just in case there was a major crisis and I needed some immediate rectifying doing! I went for a big clutch bag which was decorated to match my dress.

To complete my look I accessorised my look with bangles which complimented my outfit. I chose a mixture of glass and plastic ones which I brought by the dozen. Some were glittery and the others just plain so that I had a nice mixture of the two. On the day I did lose a few but it is fair to say that my outfit and look was traditional for that of an Indian wedding but I did look unique.
