Emerging trends for the new-age bride

When it comes to defining the new-day bride, three things come to our mind. One who is unconventional, loves to experiment and at the same time takes pride in being Indian. The new-age bride desires to be chic and elegant, traditional yet stylishly modern.

Among the Bollywood divas, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Lara Dutta, Shilpa Shetty & Kalki Koelchin have broken ‘the rule of red’ and introduced a new family of colours to their bridal wear.

Aishwarya donned a cream-coloured Kanjeevaram saree at her wedding. Lara appeared at her court wedding, draped in a cream and gold sari whereas Kalki took her saat pheras in a white silk sari with an elaborate matching border.

With time, different Indo-Western styles have emerged in this category like long lehenga choli, lehenga saree and gowns.

Long Lehenga Choli

An extension of the traditional lehenga, this one has a long choli with medium flared lehenga. This style accentuates pear-shaped women. Previously, fabrics like raw silk or jamevar silk were used, but in the modern times, organza, crepe tissue, chiffon and georgette have been used to bring the contemporary woman a sense of grace and dignity.

Lehenga Saree

It’s an elegant mix of two classic styles, lehenga and saree. The concept in itself is unique. Lehenga Saree redefines the age-old glory of saree and upscales the glam quotient. It’s a perfect dress for the new-age bride as it reflects both class and culture.

A westernized approach which is soon gaining popularity, gowns have become an inseparable part of the bridal trousseau. This style distinctly compliments a woman with a tall and slim figure.

Other than these emerging trends, the contemporary woman also pushes the boundaries with colour

She wants to go beyond the set rules of ethnic fashion and wear rich shades like magenta, azure and lavender. From heavy embroidery and embellishments, the focus is now shifting to structured outfits which flatters one’s body type and provides comfort as most Indian wedding ceremonies last long hours.
