How to accessorise for your next destination wedding!
Marriages are a major milestone in one's life. Cherished for eternity, you're glammed up to the max; it is only fair if your wedding destination resonates the same grandeur and style as you. After all, it's a once-in-a-lifetime event, so why not make it perfect?
Not all destinations are the same and neither are all brides! When you think of your dream wedding, what do you imagine? Is it by the sea? Or in the courtyard of a palace? This guide to India's top 5 wedding destinations will help you find the right accessory for the occasion!
Imagine your groom tying the mangalsutra as the sun's golden rays caress you with the pristine seas in the backdrop... Now that sounds like an escapade, perfect for your big leap. A wedding signifies the beginning of something beautiful and, as such, deserves a celebration; there's no place fitter for celebrating than Goa, the party capital of India!
For the bridal look, we recommend going for pastels or white on the attire and upping the ante with glimmering diamond pieces. The unique juxtaposition of pastels or white with the shine of the diamonds creates an outfit that encapsulates the pristine and youthful nature of the destination.
Udaipur is one of India's most notable locations for a wedding, deservedly so! Crystal lakes and flamboyant regal palaces combine to create the grandest setting for the greatest day of your life! Fabulously lux, Udaipur is sure to leave your wedding photo book painted in a myriad of colours.
We recommend you match the sophistication of Udaipur with your bridal jewellery. Be the queen of your kingdom by curating your bridal look around traditional pieces from the state of Rajasthan, like the highly ornate Aadh choker, Ram Navami necklace and the Pochi bracelet mixed with artistic and glamorous polki or meenakari statement pieces for a chic blend of glitter and panache. Pair it with bright traditional lehengas to complete the look!
While some prefer a grandiose or busy wedding, many opt for peaceful, serene and deeply spiritual settings, which is why Rishikesh is a popular wedding destination in India! The charm of distant chiming bells and the whispers of faraway hymns, words fail to do justice to the calming magic in the air!
Match your setting perfectly by going the traditional route for styling. Opt for a wardrobe comprising of traditional bridal attire in hues of pink and red, paired with temple jewellery and intricately crafted pieces with motifs and symbols of Gods, Goddesses and their magical stories!
Escape the hustle and bustle of the mainland as the azure skies and the clear yet calm water of the Andamans greet you! Exchange your vows as your family and friends gather to witness your beautiful union in the presence of the sky, the sea and the sand!
We recommend adding pearls and platinum pieces to your wedding ensemble and a saree or gown dyed emerald green or peacock blue. This playful yet elegant combination captures the tropical essence of the Andamans. In addition to being a bold choice of wedding jewellery, this combo is guaranteed to make you look stunning in your photos!
