Bridesmaid is a western culture where the bride’s sisters and friends are an integral part of the wedding. They are the shadow of the bride and have specific roles to play. Slowly this culture is venturing into India as well. Indian brides also have about 5-6 women as their bridesmaids who are the most important people at the wedding after the bride and the groom of course!
Choosing the bridesmaid is daunting task and so is deciding their attire for the wedding. We give you some ideas on how to make your bridesmaids look pretty and elegant and yet not overshadow the bride-to-be in a Marathi Matrimony.
Sarees, lehengas, anarkali suits or salwar kameez are some of the popular choices for Indian bridesmaids. However, nowadays there are special trends that are in vogue and the bridesmaids want to look nothing but perfect for the wedding.
Match it right- Pick colors from the brides ensemble and get something made for the bridesmaid out of it. For instance if the bride is wearing an orange and red lehenga with green motifs and embellishments, you could get simple lehengas made in red and green for the bridesmaid. This will give them a unique look and they will be matching with the bride as well.
Contrast is in- Today, contrast is also in vogue so you can choose a completely different color for the bridesmaid’s attire that goes with the bride’s ensemble but has no resemblance to it. For instance, if the bride is wearing an orange lehenga or saree, the bridesmaid could be dressed in a red attire or even yellow. The two colors are different but they blend in well. It will make for amazing pictures as well.
Color Play- Usually, bridesmaids outfits are monochromatic using a single color. Think out of the box and get different color outfits for each bride. You could plan to have all the hues of the rainbow or choose two-three colors that blend in well like red, orange and yellow have the bridesmaids wear these shades so no particular color gains prominence.
Mix and match- The bride and her team of bridesmaid can mix and match their color scheme. If the bride is wearing a combination of purple and pink with purple being the base color, the bridesmaids could wear the opposite with pink being the base and purple the other color. Along with the colors the bride and her bridesmaids could also mix the type of outfits they plan to wear. If the bride is wearing a lehenga for the main function, the bridesmaids could wear sarees. For some of the pre-wedding functions they could swap.
Indian weddings are all about color, celebration and fun. Lets bring out the colorful best in a Marathi matrimony through the variety of outfits the bride and the bridesmaid can wear. These simple tips will help you plan for your big day in a more aesthetic manner.
