Monsoon Wedding? Here is how you should prep up
Monsoons are arriving slowly, so is the wedding season. And so are the frowns on the brides. It is indeed the most romantic time of the year, with the perfect backdrop for a surreal, blooming love story.
It goes without saying that you will be saved from the scorching sun, and heatwaves, rituals and celebrations can be enjoyed to the fullest. However, a heavy downpour can prove to be disastrous for the new couple. But, let’s not dampen the spirits of the lovebirds. Let the event managers and your family and friends take care of the venue, food, and overall event, if it rains, all you need to do is keep your calm and choose your Indian wedding dresses cautiously.
Tips to dress up for your Monsoon Wedding
While a little relief is blissful, a heavy downpour can really spoil things especially for the bride who are expected to be all decked up in heavily embellished designer wear. The monsoon brides, thus, must consider a few things before buying their bridal lehengas.
Simple lehengas, less adornments
Avoid designer lehengas that have too much embellishments or embroideries. Though wearing heavily adorned Indian dresses have become a style statement, it is suggested to avoid heavy fabrics and embellishments during the monsoons as humidity, moisture and damp surroundings can make you very uncomfortable.
Rather, go for wedding lehengas in lighter fabrics, minimal handiwork, vibrant colours and quirky prints.
Go for lighter fabrics
Definitely stay away from brocade, silk, velvet lehengas. Rather go for fabrics like satin and georgette. These are lightweight, breathable, and easy to clean if they get dirty. A different cut and look will also look classy and make you stand out amid other brides.
When it comes to jewellery and baubles, try to keep it minimal. The bride would like to be comfortable and pleasant during the rituals, ceremonies and parties. Monsoons are very humid and too much of bling and adornments will make you uncomfortable and scratchy. Also, too much weight on the bride will make it difficult for her to move around. Apart from wearing waterproof makeup for the D-Day, one can also replace fresh flowers with hair accessories to adorn the hair. One should plan and decide beforehand the hairstyle. Open tresses in this humid weather is a big NONO.
The colour schemes
Though ivory, whites, beige and pastels are the new trending hues, choosing one for your monsoon wedding would not be a great option, as they can easily get stained. Go for brighter hues which also lifts up the mood amid the gloominess of the rains.
Bright prints that stand out
During monsoon, the sky tends to remain dark and overcast. So why not choose fuller, brighter prints, that only makes the bride look vibrant, but also cheers everyone up. Bold foliage and floral prints are a great way to dress up in a monsoon wedding. It will help the brides match the pleasant yet dark backdrop of the rainy season. These are edgy, stylish and contemporary.
Lehengas with deep cuts and contemporary blouses
Since you cannot really flaunt a heavily adorned lehenga, nor can opt for a lot of jewellery, you can rather work upon designer blouses and elaborate or quirky neck designs, and go sleek on jewellery. This is the best way to look glamorous traditionally.
Unconventional silhouettes are trending majorly. New patterns, cuts, with the blouses as the focal point is a point of experimenting for modern girls. Contemporary blouses are all about the opulence, quirky feel and flamboyance. Long sleeves, flowy sleeves, off shoulder cholis, and backless cholis are some of the options that one can choose to add some drama to their elegant outfits.
