“Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself – Coco Chanel.” So, why be any different on the most important day of your life? More than anyone else, a bride knows, how she would want to look on her wedding day for she has been researching on it for years and making mental notes. A little help from friends and experts is great to listen to and maybe, follow. But overall, to carry a look for the prolonged duration of the day, a bride must be comfortable, confident and in unison with the hair, make-up, accessories, footwear, garments and everything that will complete her bridal look.
Bridal wear selection must take into consideration your skin color, for a paler skin can carry off any color outfit, a darker tone goes better with matt golden and similar tones than red, brown and their variants. We all know what we can flaunt and what needs to be hidden/camouflaged with styling wonders. For example, buy a short choli and lehenga look only if you have a toned midriff. If not, please go for a longer, suitably fitted kurti style choli with your lehenga. Whatever look you decide on, whether it is a saree, sharara or a lehenga choli, please ensure you can carry it off with ease and panache, for any discomfort and every photo/video of that memorable day will show it for life.
Next, come accessories and footwear. These two aspects must be well-coordinated with the bridalwear. That is if your bridal wear is very heavy and overly worked on with crystals, embroidery, beads, thread work, Gota Patti, other kinds of laces etc., try and keep accessories on the lighter side to avoid overdoing and creating a clutter. If it is vice versa, accentuate your minimalist bridal wear with heavy accessories. Footwear should be comfortable; especially the heel-length which should be within the comfort zone.

Last but not least, to keep smelling fresh through the evening, personal hygiene must be maintained at all times, ensuring usage of perfumed roll-ons, minimal Eau-de-toilette, skin moisturisers, breath fresheners etc. These are basics, but vital personal hygiene pillars.
