5 Bridal Trousseau Ideas For 5 Wedding Functions

It will not be wrong to say that for a bride, finalizing her wedding trousseau is the hardest job in the entire wedding. After all, it is every bride’s dream to look ‘like a dream’ on all of her wedding festivities.

Searching for that one perfect wedding dress is not a walk in the park, but doing that task for 5-6 dresses, it is easy to faint! It is a well-established fact that in India, weddings are not just a single day event. They run for at least 4-7 days and have 5-7 different functions spread over all these days. This means that the star of the festivities a.k.a the bride has to nail that perfect bridal look not just once but 5-6 times.

Our dear bridies, you do not have to be tensed anymore because we are here to help you. Yes! Help you in selecting the wedding outfits for all the different type of functions which commonly take place in an Indian wedding.

  1. The DJ Night: Also known as the cocktail or bachelors party, this has gained a lot of momentum these days. It is the night filled with non-stop dancing and a lot of alcohol, therefore it is necessary for you to wear something that’s comfortable yet sexy for a night party. You should opt for a little black dress with all white or all black sports shoes. Yes! We are talking about wearing sports shoes; after all, you need to wear something on the foot which is comfortable. And remember Deepika Padukone also paired up her little, shimmery red dress with white sports shoes? If not an LBD, you can also try wearing a black jumpsuit which is a hot favorite of many celebrities these days for disco parties.

  1. The Mehndi Ceremony: As you are the bride-to-be, huge and very detailed mehndi designs will be painted on your hands and legs. Therefore you need to wear a dress which is open at hands, legs and at the same time should be something which is unique as well as flattering. The ideal choice is a pleated skirt with a matching top which should either be sleeveless or in half-sleeves. This dress will also be very comfortable to wear because as you’ll be sitting for long hours in a stretch, so comfort has to be the number one priority.

  1. The Dance Night: Yes, we are talking about the ladies sangeet. For this function we recommend you to opt for an Anarkali suit lehenga and keep the hair blow-dried with loose curls. As you will be dancing, the Anarkali suit lehenga will give your legs a lot of room to dance. And we also suggest opting for something which is not too heavy on embroidery or embellishments for extra comfort.

  1. The Big Day: These days there are so-so many options when it comes to bridal lehenga. Without any proper research or having an idea about what she wants to wear, it is super easy for a bride to go crazy. In their latest collections, many ace Indian designers are getting inspired by the Mughal-Rajasthani architecture with a hint of floral patterns. You can also look for lehenga on rent in Delhi in heritage designs which are pastel or ethnic colors like peach, pista, red, pink etc.

  1. The Reception: The last but an impactful wedding function is the reception. Here both you and the husband will be meeting all the wedding guests in person for the first time as a newly wedded couple. For this event, we will recommend you to go for a saree which can either be in silk or studded with Swarovski crystals. Tie your hair in a bun and wear a statement choker necklace set or a statement pair of earrings.
