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 !

Benefits of choosing unconventional or non-traditional Indian wedding dresses and colours :
1) When you choose an unconventional Indian wedding dress, you can wear them on many different occasions and not just in weddings. This can help you save money as we all know how expensive Indian wedding dresses can be and the fact that you can wear them over and over on various occasions can help you make the most of your money spent.
2) They can also help you choose dress for specialized wedding themes as well as colour coordinate it with your groom!. Like if you plan on getting married at the beach you can choose blue, aqua, or white to match up the location or color co-ordinate it with the theme or some element.
3) If you are getting married in the hotter months of the year, you can choose lighter fabrics and colours to keep cool rather than choosing traditional bright, heavy or dark shades.
4) And finally, you get to wear something you love! or have dreamt of. An unconventional wedding dress that is custom made to your preference and in accordance with your style is sure help make you stand out on your D day and will make it extra special for you.
