There is no limit as to how creative you can get with your Bridal Look. Each and every bride has a different and unique vison for their wedding day look. I want to reflect upon some of my very own brides from the 2017 Wedding Season and just highlight their beautiful looks:
Mrs. Queen of Pastels Bride: Gopi Patel

Our bride Gopi, took the initiative to adapt to the trending colors of the year by sticking to a beautiful mint green Lengha for her reception. The pastel colors defined her sweet and subtle personality and she looked nothing less than a Princess straight out of a Fairytale.
Mrs. Free Spirited Bride: Puja Bhatt
Puja was the epitome of “A chill Bride”. She wore minimal jewelry, a beautiful golden lengha and had no draping. Puja wanted to feel as free and as comfortable as possible all day long. She has proven to all of us in the South Asian Community, that you do not need to be dolled up with heavy jewelry and draping in order to stand out as an “Indian Bride” and we LOVE that about her!
Mrs. Hindu Traditional Bride : Hetal Patel

When have we ever gone wrong with a traditional bridal look? Hetal, proves that even in this day and age, the white and red bridal wear colors are still as vibrant and beautiful as ever as long as you find a good balance between them, which she undoubtedly had!
Mrs. Wishful upon White Bride: Christina Paul

Our South Indian Bride, Christina, pulled off a Chic white gown which reflected her personality to the fullest. When asked Christina how she felt about her wedding gown she stated: “It was elegant, beautifully intricate, fit and flare dress. The front, back and borders were a beautiful beaded lace intricate and unique work. I wore a simple cathedral veil with just stones along the edges. I felt like a princess, it had that elegance and glam and I love the fit and flare look because it snugs your body but at the same time has the big elegant appeal, makes you being the bride, really stand out.”
Mrs. Over the Top Modern Bengali Bride: Farrah Siddique

Farrah’s look left us all so speechless as she was glowing in the most beautiful way. When asked Farrah about her insight on her overall ceremony look, this is what she had to say: “My Nikkah look was definitely my favorite look out of all the wedding events. I wanted to have a super traditional “Bengali Bride look” with a modern twist. – Best of both worlds. The way I wanted to drape and pin my saree.. and the traditional color red were really important to me because I wanted to incorporate all Bengali traditions into this one look. My mother wore red on her wedding day and I got a ton of inspiration from her on how I wanted to be portrayed as a Bengali Bride. My jewelry, makeup, and hair were the final “modern” touches that completed my look.”
Mrs. Picture Perfect Punjabi Bride : Trisha Sakhuja

Trisha’s look was a combination of hip, beautiful, and bold. She did not hesitate to wear her hair down instead of having a traditional updo and her MUA, Jasmin Rahman used bold colors to complete her overall look. While making a statement, Trisha stayed true to her roots by rocking the traditional “Chura” most commonly wore by Punjabi Brides on their wedding day. This Bride of ours definitely set new trends for future Brides in the South Asian Community.
