A wedding is all about fun, get together and most importantly fashion, from black to golden to blue, the wedding season this year is all about playing with colours. And when it comes to jewellery, pick pieces that enhance your beauty rather than being weighed down by them. “The upcoming wedding season is going to be full of surprises. The colours that will rule the wedding season are off-pastels. Colours like grey, powder blues, dull rose, even something like a dusty peach will be seen trending and these colours will be seen embellished with softer metallic embroidery,” designer Anaita Shroff Adajania said. Even if you opt for a ‘big fat Indian wedding’, you can skip the “heavy lehengas”.
“It is all about a bride opting for lighter ensembles where she’s free to dance, twirl and hang out with her friends,” added Adajania, who became part of the sixth edition of The Vogue Wedding Show (VWS).
Held in partnership with Taj Hotels Palaces Resorts Safaris, the three-day wedding exhibition, held here earlier this month, had ace designers like Anita Dongre, Manish Malhotra, Sabyasachi Mukherjee, Tarun Tahiliani, Gaurav Gupta and Rahul Mishra available for personal consultations. It also included a workshop on styling, where Adajania shared contemporary style tips and advice for brides and grooms.
Pointing out the trends, Adajania said: “Black and gold is a powerful combination for a bride who wants to make a very strong statement, like a soft new gothic look. “Powder blue has emerged as a very big colour this wedding season, sometimes even venturing into a pale dove grey. Ivory or white embroidery on these shades work beautifully to create a very dream-like look for the bride.” The blouse will be the ‘hero’ this wedding season.
