The perfect wedding dress is always just in one’s mind. It is a hard task to find the exact piece that pleases the eye at the first look. Here ISHASILKS eases your trouble in finding a perfect wedding outfit. But there are certain things you must keep in mind before venturing out to look for that ideal outfit. Gold is a dominant bridal hue this season, creams, ivory, off white deep corals, intense crimsons, rich maroons and royal blues can be good pick. Banarasi weaves, brocade, zardozi and wire work are also quiet prominent. If you want to be simply unconventional then black could be your pick. Never go for what others are wearing but pick what suits your skin colour and body type best. While selecting keep in mind the weight of the lehanga you choose. Wedding dresses are heavy to carry. Remember, the ceremonies are long. So, if you can manage a day then go for it else makes sure you carry a lighter weight lehanga. Do not leave matching jewellery and footwear for last days shopping. The accessories can make or break the charm of your outfit. Make sure that if the lehanga is heavy then the jewellery and make up are subtle or vice versa. When you are picking up the outfit question yourself on how you can reinvent it later. Break and block them so that you can wear the blouse with the contrasting saree or wear the lehanga with a simple blouse or top or probably a traditional jacket.
