Fantastico Tips To Accessorize Right For An Indian Wedding08:45
I attended a recent wedding where the bride looked beautiful in a mint green lehenga with pastel pink borders on her dupatta. Her jewellery also was kept simple with just a necklace, earrings, tika and chura on hands. This bride added bright colour to her look with a Red lipstick and skipped on bridal jewellery like matha patti , nath and hath phool. At the same wedding I spotted a girl (most probably a newly wed) who was dressed in bright pink velvet lehenga, layered it with three necklaces , jhumkas and hand full of glass bangles. Whats more this girl even wore a matha patti and hand harness Epic Fail. Just not the right way a wedding guest should accessorize her look
So what jewelery is exactly acceptable to be worn for a wedding? Follow these safe and simple accessory rules to blend into a wedding without grabbing more attention than the bride herself.
Getting your accessories right is the secret to a perfect wedding guest style. From hand harness to head chains there are a number peppy new age accessories you can flaunt with ethnic wear these days. If your outfit is light you can add two statement accessories but with a heavy lehenga or anarkali go easy on jewelry and stick to just earrings and kadas. If you are attending a south indian wedding or wedding of a new age bride who likes minimal style then a simple saree or lehenga with a statement jewelery is the way to go.
Fantastico tips to wear statement ethnic jewelry:
Upper arm band: The armlet or upper arm bracelet of sort is a traditional jewellery i have spotted telegu brides wear. If you are wearing lehenga or saree with puffed sleeves an upper arm band is the right accessory for you to nail the traditional look . Trendy fusion armlets are also available these days which can be paired with sleeveless or off shoulder outfit for a peppy indo fusion look.
Hand harness: The revamped version of hath phool is an effortless way to grab attention . Choose from the various four finger hand harness for maximum impact and keep rest of your hands bare i.e skip the bangles, bracelets and upper arm bands. If you are a new bride who wears chura then go for a one finger hand harness to balance things out.
Bangles: Dozens of jingling bangles always look good with ethnic wear . If you are doing simple outfit and jewellery then add a dozen bangles to each hands and also a pair of kadas in the end. Go for glass bangles in contrasting colours or choose to match the colours in your outfit. Wearing two coloured bangles with kadas is a current hot trend. Metallic bangles also work well if your outfit has metallic detailing in it.
Clutch: Carrying the right bag is equally important to get your wedding look right . People these days prefer small potlis , clutches and wallets instead of bags . If you are doing a fully traditional look opt for a silk potli . For a fusion traditional look a clutch works best. if your outfit and accessories are light add drama and bling with an embellished clutch
