DIY UBER BRIDE-STYLE
With wedding season almost upon us, if there’s one thing that soon-to-be bridezillas are probably stressing hard over – it’s their trousseau. And while we’d all love our very own custommade designer sarees, lehengas and gowns, many a kickass bride is now choosing to do her own thing and going down the DIY route when it comes to her clothes for the nuptials. So fret not, keep that stress at bay, for no bride-to-be wants to be stressed out in anticipation of her big day! We’ve scoured through our loot, and picked the very finest clothes, jewellery and more that everyone on your ‘gram will be supes jelly of (and maybe pass ‘em on down to their very own kids one day, no?). And, did we mention it’s all under a cool 20k?
THE PUNJU UBER BRIDE
When it comes to lehengas, pink is the new red, and we’ve found you the perfect one in this gold+pink peacock beaut. All you need is a maang tikka, an on-trend floral nath, a pearl joda for your neck and shoes to go.
THE SOUTHIE UBER BRIDE
A gorg saree in anything from cream, gold, pink, blue, green, yellow – a bride from down South can usually go all cray when it comes to choosing a colour, but we stuck with pink and cream ‘cos looking at the massive paisley print along the borders, it was hard for us to really pass this one over. A maang-tikka, necklace and shoes are the only other accessories you’ll need to look like a million bucks.
THE GOAN UBER BRIDE
If anything Ms. Markle set a precedent for church-wed brides to go a lil experimental with their gowns (her Givenchy gown was fairly understated and non-conforming, and we were in love). We decided to go the other end of the spectrum and picked you a lace/sheer midi number, the perfect Princess-worthy shoes in metallic, a feathered clutch and uber chic pearl drop earrings.
THE HIMACHALI UBER BRIDE
The new-age Himachali bride can often be found in cream sarees instead of going the traditional route (or at least a dear friend from there donned one recently), and nothing rounds it off better than a simple maang-tikka and earrings, or you can skip the headgear and go with a necklace instead.
THE BENGALI UBER BRIDE
While a lot of Bong brides do wear red, we thought we’d give her a more eclectic spin and go with yellow instead. All you need is a heavy gold necklace, a gold waist-belt and more gold on your feet, with lots of sweet-smelling roses in your tresses.
