Five Must Have Wedding Accessories

While the bride would have had months of preparations (and a bigger budget) to get her wedding ready, you might not be as lucky. To ease you into the wedding season, we give some tips and picks to look your fashionable best when you are heading for a big fat Indian wedding!

Tip 1- Dress your age and personality. Wear something that is comfortable.  Opt for something light-weight and maneuverable, which you can dance and twirl in and which won’t weigh you down. (Especially for a long and fun Sangeet night.) 

Tip 2- Colour In a sea of gold and bling it would be nice to do a pop-up colour which instantly uplifts your mood as well as lights up the room. Opt for deep crimson, emerald or even Fuchsia and Marsala.

Tip 3- Wear a statement piece Add something to take your look and take it to a whole new level, so it becomes memorable. Maybe by wearing classic accessories in a new way,don a Maharashtrian nose-pin (nath) at on a six-yards saree or a lehenga, it will look stunning.

Tip 4- Be graceful and let the bride have her day Don’t try to upstage the bride. It is supposed to be her day, and you can have many more sangeets and weddings in the future, but she’ll probably have just one for herself.

Now that you are set in the wedding mood, let’s give you some quick accessory picks. You’ll thank us for this!

1) BATWA/POTLIS & CLUTCHES

Pick a compact and colourful clutch to offset a simple salwaar kameez. Textured pieces with weaves or lace are in vogue. Donning smaller hand bags, clutches, and batwas is the smart way to go, this will ensure you have just the right bag to carry your essentials- money and lipstick. Here are some wedding essential batwas and clutches we really loved.

2) SHOES

This season shoes aren’t just mere accessories that complete your look, they are loud and they like to make a statement of their own. Think opulence with sequins and glitter. We recommend you wear ethnic flats or juttis to go with you shalwaar-kameez/churidaars/ lehengas on Sangeet night. Lace pumps, and kitten heels would go perfectly with your dress/saree at the wedding or reception. Let’s make your feet happy with these shoes, here!

3) JEWELRY

Glam up your outfit with a contemporary diamond and gold earrings for the wedding ceremony, and reception. Tribal jewelry is a good option for Sangeet and Mehendi nights!  For those who are not big on diamonds and pearls, direct some attention to your wrist with a classy watch or a bracelet. Here are some jewelry options, we picked for you- Moha Necklace

Hair accessories not only embellish a hairdo, but also make you stand out by enhancing the overall look. A boho necklace or jeweled hairpins adds more glamour to a bouffant or bun. A Rajasthani maang-tika looks absolutely ravishing. Some uber head and hair accessories we hand-picked for you-
