Get The Look For A Summer Wedding
Pleasant weather, long evenings, flowers in full bloom, and the abundance of colors. You guessed it right, we’re talking about summer weddings.
The Summer wedding season is upon us and that’s reason enough to book your flight tickets, pick the perfect invites, and update your wardrobe with the latest trends of the season!
From color palettes and popping florals to elegant centerpieces and decor, summer weddings are all about celebrating the magic of the season.
While you’re deciding on the venue for your special day, we’ll help you take the guesswork out of putting your look together with this handy guide.
Remember The Occasion
Different ceremonies call for different looks. Thus, it’s important to decide your look based on the occasion. Also, time and venue are equally important factors.
A pre-wedding ceremony like a Mehendi ceremony in the day calls for a lighter outfit like a kurta while a ghagra choli works for a sangeet ceremony in the evening.
You can opt for a classic saree for the wedding while an ethnic gown befits a reception.
Keep The Venue In Mind
With the perfect weather, summer weddings mostly involve outdoor venues and luxurious views. Destination weddings have always been a popular choice and when better than summer to plan one?
For an open garden wedding, opt for a vibrant outfit like a ghagra choli that gets you wedding-ready while keeping you comfortable.
A barn wedding would call for a more luxurious outfit and what better than a classic handloom saree for the purpose? For men, a structured outfit like a sleek suit and blazer works well for the occasion.
When it comes to a beach wedding, look appropriate for the occasion while having fun in the sun with an outfit in delicate, flowy fabric and flared cuts.
Focus on The Colors
Filled with vibrant hues and pastels, summer calls for a refreshing and light palette to compliment the spirit of the season.
From soft pinks and peaches to cooler blues and vibrant yellows, summer weddings are all about splurging on pastels!
Complemented by effervescent prints and delicate embroidery, anarkalis and sarees in vibrant summer hues are versatile picks for just about any ceremony.
Invest in a colorful, floral sherwani for a daytime engagement ceremony while picking a sleek suit for an evening function.
A floral gown in a pastel hue is just what you need for an open garden ceremony or a reception, whereas a saree in a striking hue works well for those pre-wedding functions.
Minimize the Makeup
Summer weddings are all about a natural and fresh look. Go easy on the makeup by opting for a minimal makeup routine. Ditch the shimmer for a matte lipstick. Stick to a color palette with the refreshing hues of the season. Skip the foundation for a lighter alternative like a BB cream and conceal spots and highlight key areas. Keep your skin moisturized and hydrated with essentials like sunscreen and lip balms.
Add up on Accessories
Take your look up a notch with accessories!
Experiment with a variety of jewelry; a Zircon set works well for a contemporary look while a Vilandi set is perfect for an extravagant look.
While opting for a heavy ensemble, go minimal on accessorizing.
Balance your look in an embroidered anarkali with a statement ring instead of a kada, for an engagement.
If you’re going for a classic pick like a saree, compliment it with a pearl mala instead of a statement necklace that may be too overwhelming for the look.
For those pre-wedding ceremonies, you can opt for a lightweight, comfortable kurta and amp up the look with a bejeweled set. Fusion sets with a mix of precious stones make for an effortless pick to add a touch of contemporary to your traditional outfits.
If you’re looking for a quick and easy way to accentuate your look in a sherwani, pick an embellished stole or an ethnic pair of mojaris.
