Its the most difficult part of getting married- a wedding trousseau is the most beautiful part to shop for and the most confusing too.
so many trials and so many stores to peek into. when i was looking out for my perfect wedding dress it was trail and error at all stores since it was the annual july sale time! u cannot find something new and trendy fatak se…
and a lot of times people end up buying the wrong trousseau. my suggestion:
anything in pure silk is 7 years old and surely avoidable (until n unless its gaji )
anything in raw silk is atleast 3 years old (but can work for a pre-wedding function)
anything in brocade a year old atleast (but depending on the finishing and work it can still be carried beautifully)
anything in net plus resham is the latest (but once torn it turns useless)
anything in cotton and gold is evergreen !! (again depends on personal choice)
for gujjus its simple to find a wedding outfit since its a tradition to wed in panetar n gharchhodu (a white saree with red border and a red saree with gold checks)

the most beautiful of all attires a bride buy she will love her wedding outfit the most.
its always advisable to buy the wedding outfit first before buying other attires since you dont want a budget crunch or ‘i already have this color, this style, this pattern blah blah blah’ kinda excuses. it should be the finest of all attires you buy. not just for the bride but even brides maid and the family members.
a pvt radio station i work with had a bridal fashion show a few months back. here are a few pics for how the bride should look like.
things to remember while selecting a wedding outfit:
i just came to know certain families have rituals which says the bride and the groom cannot see the bride’s outfit before marriage. its kept as a secret. she sees it on the wedding day and he sees it at the mandap.
have fun selecting your wedding outfit! cheers!! make sure its a part of all you dreamed for your w-day. these days there also a few designers who can make you a customized trousseau according to your choice of color, embellishments and style and of course budget!
