How to Style your Indian Beach Wedding by Sonia C
Planning your destination wedding on a beach? Since you've already thought outside of the box about your venue, continue the same thought process about the overall style of your wedding too! Here's how:
Keep your bridal-wear light and breezy! The last thing you want to do is sweat walking down the aisle. Take a note from Sonam's play book with this amazing, modern sari design that flows in the wind but still has a formal aspect.
Jodha Akbar jewelry and the beach seriously don't go together. Traditional jewels will look cumbersome and heavy, so opt for delicate pieces or skip the gold and platinum for floral jewelry to match your surroundings. People have gotten very creative with their floral jewels lately!
Your makeup should feel weightless and some key words to think about when planning your look would be: glowing, fresh, fun, soft.... NOT traditional. Your hair should match the overall feeling of the event- are you a laid back, messy fishtail kind of girl or are you a beachy waves type of girl?
The first thing I think of when I picture a beach wedding is the combination of white sand and blue water. These are serene colors that can be punched up with an accent like hot pink or orange.
Let go of the mandap and think about what surrounds you... Water, flowers, greenery! A giant golden mandap and elephants on the sand always looks and sounds overdone. There are so many creative ways to reflect the idea of one without actually using it!
