Traditional Wedding Attire For Brides

Traditional Wedding Attire For Brides

A wedding is one of the most auspicious days in anyone’s entire life. A bucket of so many small rituals, dresses, destinations, food, lights, and much more. The mixture of cultural traditions with some modern touch is a new way of celebrating weddings. In all traditions, it is a ritual that every female covers their head. Likewise, in the Middle East women wear hijab or even a dupatta

It has been observed that mostly their dresses are made of stonework, threadwork, embroidery, sequins, etc. Although wedding dresses are thought to be bright shades, it doesn’t mean they can’t be worn in any other shade.    

With the lifestyle change, bridal dresses have undergone a lot of change. Some of the latest trends for weddings are:

Kurti With Mughal Lehenga Style

Step out from traditional wear to a modern style. In many communities wearing a blouse may not be suitable but you can go for a Kurti. Heavy embellished short Kurtis paired with a lehenga skirt and a dupatta look exceptionally gorgeous. Although it might look more like a sharara and kurta still it is way different. 

Lehenga Choli

The oldest and the prettiest dress lovable by everyone. Although they are very easy to wear along with that they come with a lot of hustle, as their dupattas are very heavy and along with that a separate head covering is also needed. Especially of this is that they vary with beautiful zardozi, embroidery, zari work, and many more. A perfect blend of traditional wear with a slight modish look.
