Indian Bridal colours 2015

Indian Bridal colours 2015


In the current wedding season of India, which generally runs through out the year and is evergreen and forever young! one thing which catches my attention more than anything else is the colour of the bridal attire which has changed significantly from traditional to unconventional. 🙂

Gone are the days when just a few colors which included traditional red, maroon, pink or fuschia pink defined the mood of the Indian weddings, especially since red is considered auspicious. But, that seems to have been undergoing a change lately, as a lot of brides are opting for something more contemporary for their bridal outfits and no more, only traditional indian bridal colours.
You will now find a major part of the collection in subtle shades of ivory, off-white, grey, beige etc. which is truly redefining the Indian bridal fashion. Even for the other ceremonial functions, our pretty brides are adding a variety of unconventional colours like white, green, light pink, marsala, orange yellow and gold in their bridal trousseau!
Thanks to the evolution of fashion in Indian wedding wear, the bride and groom now have a lot of exciting and vibrant colors to choose from 🙂  So, for all you soon-to-be brides , here are some of the hottest non-traditional colours which made way in some of the famous celeb weddings which took place in last few months and showed us these fabulous contemporary bridal colours in their outfits !
