"I always have stuck to one theory that different kinds of silhouettes and trends might come and go, but what women really want is to look feminine, beautiful and glamorous."

1. Decoding Looks

If you aspire to look like a Mughal Princess, get inspired by ancient Muslim dresses, colors like Iranian turquoise with gold and perfectly cut silhouettes.


For jewelry, it's all about layering! Don an emerald necklace along with a nice choker that sits well around the neck, a big maang teeka, earrings and a statement nath. But it's the elegant and traditional passa that takes your straight into that era so don't forget to wear that!


As far as makeup is concerned, dark smoky eyes with lots of kajal, lots of blush, glossy lips and pulled back hair should do the trick.

If you want to opt for a typical Hindustani look, then that has to include some fresh mogra flowers in your hair, a striking maathapatti and a bindi. To add a modern nuance with that, you can keep your hair textured, skin dewy with dark and smoky eyes.


If you are a boho bride, go in for an unconventional color with an even more unique pattern on it. Let your hair be messy and don't forget to add a 'me' touch in anything you do!

2. Red Or No Red

Red is back in trend but so are unconventional colors! So if you pick a red ensemble for your wedding, then break the monotony with unconventional colors for your reception. Hues of emerald green, pinks - whether its baby pink or rani pink, metallic or even different shades of rose are all in this season and work well on the Indian skin.

3. Want White But Not Right

A great option for brides this season is ivory and old rose pink. Both of these exude the right amount of elegance and charm. Even men with good physique and long stature should opt for Ivory for their wedding sherwani.


White is never a preferred color for a wedding but no color quite matches the elegant tone that is set by white.

4. Jewellery Tips

A spectacular concept that Kishandas & Co. and me together have come up with is called modular jewellery. This means that you can wear a heavy necklace followed by a choker that sits on the nape of your neck. This gives you the choice of wearing multiple pieces or a single piece. Allow the jewellery to be in emeralds, rubies, polkis or rough cut diamonds.

Here's are some important tips about jewellery - If your lehenga is very busy which means one with a lot of work on it, then wear a necklace that is geometrical in shape so that the necklace doesn't camouflage with the outfit. Let the geometry be of diamonds or emeralds and balance the necklace with colorful chand baalis.


Girls with a narrow face should ideally go for jhumkas. They add the right amount of volume to the face and suit them the best.


To get a slightly bohemian look, multi colored jewelry preferably pukhraj, ruby or emerald works the best.
