* Colour: Many of the designers are going back to pastels this wedding season with shades of crème, with dainty floral designs for the fresh and soft look. Brides looking to go all out, seem to be leaning towards embellished gowns in royal colours, fitted with mirror or intricate crystal work to guarantee a breath-taking entry to the mandap. Gota Patti work is back this year and seen in both blouses with plain colour and in lehengas.

* Cut and fabric: In terms of cut and style, new age brides are looking at crop tops, cape jackets to team up with their sarees or lehengas. Besides the usual heavy silks, satin and velvet, among people attending weddings, Organza seems to be picking up as a fabric for its light and breezy look.

Floral designs always have a dreamy effect on this material and if it’s a saree, try teaming with a solid colour satin blouse. If it’s a kurta try straight cut satin pants for that super glamorous 21st century look however, if it is a Lehenga you are looking at, then wear it in the form of a plain satin well fitted blouse to bring that Oomph look.

* Tradition and sustainable fashion to be in sync: With people more conscious of looking at sustainable products in many aspects of their lives, they want to introduce that message for weddings as well with brides looking at recycling old wedding sarees in the family paying homage to that “something old” sentiment by making it into a lehenga.
