AICW ’15 – Inspiration For Sister/Best Friend Of The Bride/Groom

When you are a sister or best friend of the bride or groom, there is no better thing for the wedding wardrobe because you literally have the pass to be the next best dressed after the bride herself!

If you want to go for a more traditional silhouette, but still want to play up on the drama, here’s how to do it! You can either play up with colours and a fabric heavy lehengas, or lehengas which have work done on them, but smartly and minimally.

The Heroine Collection and Manish Malhotra

if you do want to go all out, we recommend keeping the colour non bridal and adding a touch of non-traditionalness to the outfit, like Manish Malhotra does with the lehenga below.

But if you really don’t want the bling, but still want to look wedding-worthy, Manish Malhotra shows us how, again! The flare of the skirt below more than makes up for the minimal work on it.

The wedding is also the perfect time to experiment with new trends and silhouettes and the current favourite is the cape!

Crop tops are also quite the rage and designers have been pairing them with slimmer lehengas. Super chic vibes.

And last but not the least, you know those floor length anarkalis and jacket lehengas always have your back!

AICW ’15 – Mehendi & Sangeet / Engagement Outfit Inspiration For The Bride

SO MANY FASHION WEEKS! So many drool worthy outfits coming your way!!

Starting with the Amazon India Couture Week 2015, we’ll begin with our picks for Mehendi and Sangeet outfitsfor the bride!

Mehendi Outfits For The Bride

If you are a bride who loves her lehengas, opt for simple, yet vibrant lehengas. Let the colour and the silhouette do the talking and keep the embroideries to minimum. We loved the classic Anju Modi lehenga and the fun, colourful lehenga from Debarun by Heroine.

A-Pink-Lehengas

If you are a bride however who wants something lighter, easier to manage and very ‘Mehendi appropriate’ at the same time, this Varun Bal gown would be our pick. (PS: This gown is full sleeves, so for a bride-to-be wearing it on her mehendi, it may require some modifications.)

A-Mehendi-RohitBahl

And if you’re looking to go for something different, we loved the thought of this Rahul Mishra jacket lehenga as a Mehendi outfit – so unusual and lovely! (Again, modifications on the sleeve may be required)

The Debarun collection by Heroine really caught our eyes. They had beautiful lehengas, and it almost seemed like they have something for every bride!
