Texture plays a major role in updating the soft and pretty hue- from intricate lace and opulent brocade to appliqué and bold feathers, surface detail is the key to adding depth to the romance. When basic black just doesn’t cut it, turn to moody indigo, navy and inky blue for a wedding bash in the evening. P.S it pairs perfectly with metallic, so let your love for silver and gold take flight.

5. MISMATCH Perfection

Matching your blouse to your lehenga or sari is so passé. Unexpected pairings are the new diktat ruling the bridal game, so leave the safe choices behind. Mix bold jewel tones, pair pastels with bright, and play a game of clash-with-your-prints.
