There is so much that goes into an Indian bride’s ensemble. The outfit, jewelry, makeup, hair, shoes – the possible combinations are endless! Whether brides decide to wear a dupatta or they choose to leave their head uncovered, a shiny matha patti always adds just the right amount of fancy!

I love this first look with the reverse matha patti. It’s so beautiful and leaves guests with some eye candy as the bride walks down the aisle! Which one is your favorite? Sound off on our Facebook page!

There’s a major fashion break through when a Sari marries a Gown and becomes a Sari Gown! Here’s an elegant trend and an outfit alternative for a fabulous Indian wedding. Whether you’re modern or traditional, there’s something for everyone. I personally think the draping effect is very Cleopatra-esq and not to forget, super flattering! My most favorite part of this trend is that you can dance easily and the pleats are pre-tied! What more could an Indian bride ask for?

1

Here’s a stunning peach number by designer Gaurav Gupta. You can never go wrong with French lace!

2

 

This gorgeous hot pink sari gown that is sure to brighten up any party! I love the sheer long-sleeve arms with the floral work. Designed by Sonaakshi Raaj.

This ivory sari gown is the perfect mix of east and west. Paired with some fabulous heirloom jewels- this outfit is sure to blow away the crowd! Another Gaurav Gupta gown.

4

This purple net sari gown is less than $100! I particularly love the way it drapes on the side, giving the illusion of an actual sari. From Indian Cloth Store.

Stunning Bollywood actress, Shilpa Shetty was a trend-starter when she wore this sexy sari gown to her own wedding reception. I’m in love with the ruby jewels, too!

6

These two stunners by designer Monisha Jaising. I love the colors and the modern flair! Minimalism is the way to go with these styles. Both are perfect for a summer wedding!

Are you as inspired as I am to invest in one of these fabulous sari gowns?

I’m feeling minty! My closet is officially overflowing with every tone of pink possible. I’ve declared to not purchase a pink outfit for the next 10 years (let’s see how long that lasts). It was no wonder that I instantly fell in love with this season’s gorgeous green tone- mint green. It ‘s a fantastic hue that looks incredible on so many skin tones and for so many different seasons. Here is some inspirations for using the mint green color in your Indian wedding outfit:

1

I love the subtle use of mint green in this lengha gown. It pairs so beautifully with the lace overlay.

2

Designer Anushree Reddy hit the nail on the head with this one! It’s the perfect mint green lengha (with flowers & peacocks on the lengha) for the modern bride.

3

Here’s a fantastic lengha that will have any Indian bride glittering through the night!

4

Designer Elan Bridals created this mint green uber elegant lengha.

5

Our editors at Indian Wedding Site fell in love with this Shyamal & Bhumika number from “A Mystical Collection”. What a graceful way to incorporate mint green into wedding attire!

I am currently obsessing over designer, Ridhima Bhasin’s capes and this one is particularly my most favorite! How much is the little cape with net pearl details. Can be purchased on Pernia’s Pop-Up Shop.

Let us know your thoughts- we hope we’ll see more of this color in the upcoming months!
