A perfect care bundle for the millennial bride

What is a trousseau?

It’s like a cute little care package to take the girls through the small functions of the wedding, the honeymoon and the newlywed days.

Here we have a checklist and a few picks that might make it easier for you to create your own trousseau like the hard core millennial bride that you are. 

When you’re getting ‘em ethnic clothes, there’s an abundance of options ‘cuz the millennial bride isn’t particularly picky. #ExceptTheyAre

A sizeable collection of kurta dresses is always welcome.. you know, ‘cuz people expect your wardrobe to suddenly become super ethnic after getting married, but of course, you’re gonna do it on your own terms.

So whether it’s contributing to the black dress obsession. #AllBlackForever (Pair em with your boots!) 1Shop: Sangria Mandarin Collar Black Printed Skater Dress With Mirror Embroidery On Band & 3/4Th Sleeves, ₹ 2999; Sangria Round Neck Printed Skater Dress With Shrug,  ₹2499

Or with slightly formal, printed suits and dresses. Formal doesn’t always mean a saree! #SorryNotSaree 2Shop: Anouk Black Printed Kurta, ₹1330; Sangria Dark Grey Round Neck Yoke Embroidered Maxi Dress With Center Zipper, ₹2800

Or with maxi dresses that could be your ace for day events where you gotta stay breezy and cool. 3Shop: La Firangi Yellow Solid Kurta, ₹1080; Shree Multicoloured Printed Maxi Dress, ₹1899

It’s a little obvious that you like doing things differently. 

Even when you go for traditional suit sets, you make it your own. #MeMyselfAndDesi 

Either with frilled hems on palazzos, or straight pants with a self-pattern shorter kurta- here’s when you need XL earrings! 4Shop: All About You Beige Self Pattern Kurta, ₹ 2299; Anouk Navy Blue Printed Kurta, ₹999

Sometimes you let layering do the trick for you. That’s when we fall back on out silver jewellery to keep the accessorising subtle. 5Shop: Ritu Kumar Grey Printed Kurta, ₹6565; Anouk Charcoal Grey Printed Kurta, ₹1400

And sometimes, you go a li’l crazy with the silhouettes! Match the Sangria Anarkali with a crazy printed bag and the green kurta from Nayo with the highest nude stilettos you can find (just to make the silhouette pop a bit more). 

6Shop: Sangria Round Neck High & Low Full Sleeves Anarkali With Embroidery Detailing And Brocade Plazzo, ₹1750; Nayo Green Textured Kurta, ₹2000

The trousseau is absolutely incomplete without other little supporting characters, like a successful makeup kit, accessories and some lingerie to make the most of married life ;) #GetSomeSleep 

A second layer that when applied over any other lipstick, adds that little layer of shimmer ‘cuz you’re gonna live in the residue shine of your wedding for a while… 

A Kajal and some glitter eyeliner symbolising the drama that will probs go down at the wedding. #DramaMakesTheWorldGoesRound 7Shop: L’Oreal Paris Balmain Limited Edition Color Riche Matte Lipstick 356 Confidence, ₹1050; Lakme Grey Absolute Shine Line Eye Liner, ₹293; Maybelline Gigi Hadid Eyeliner Black, ₹350

Straight lines for a modern look? 8Shop: Accessorize Golden Short Danglers & Drop, ₹756; Dressberry Gold-Toned & White Geometric Drop Earrings,₹ 350

Or something a little classic? Or tassels that complete your maxi dresses and retain your pre-wedding aesthetic? #KeepItSafe 9Shop: Accessorize Black Long Elaborate Drop Earrings, ₹778; Fasherati Grey Brass Danglers & Drop, ₹400
