After a great response on our post 5 Wedding Fashion Disasters A Bride Can Go Through and How To Avoid It.
We at Be For Beauty think weddings are as important to the groom, his friends and family. So here’s a handy feature to browse through and avoid 5 fashion and grooming disasters on your D-Day.
Wedding Fashion Disaster #1: You’re sporting a trend you’ve never worn before.
Let me ask you this: why should you wear print-on-print when you don’t even do that on a regular day? We’re all for going with the trends but not something that goes against your instincts or comfort level. Instead, try something that’s a classic like a pastel kurta but just going a bit elaborate with some embroidery or making it floor-length long.
If you prefer sticking to traditional wear, try out a peach or royal-hued traditional dhoti and pair it with contrasting nehru jacket or a bandhgala. You’ll be turning heads, and for a good reason too!
Wedding Fashion Disaster #2: You’re trying (or being forced into) matching your outfit with your bride-to-be.
Wearing cute sweaters on a warm, sunny day is one thing but matching outfits can’t not always be the right thing to do. More often than not, most brides and grooms do not share a similar taste or have contrasting skin tones. One thing I do approve of, is to stick to the same colour family. Classics like beige, champagne, cream, white and black are very much in vogue when it comes to wedding trends 2016.
Pastels are huge and are versatile when it comes to cuts and fabrics. Finally, wear jewel tones if you’re generally open-minded about a kaleidoscope of colours and not just being roped in by those around you.
Wedding Fashion Disaster #3: Try not to skip a mani-pedi.
You don’t have to be a metrosexual to go to the salon and get a manicure. The reason is simple: your hands too, thanks to the engagement rings, will be photographed by the guys you hired, your friends and relatives you don’t even remember. So make the best of it it and enjoy a relaxing manicure at a salon. A pedicure wouldn’t hurt since you’d taking off your mojris many times for ceremonies.
In fact, I suggest doing a round up of body grooming outfit by outfit–why should women go through all the pain?
Wedding Fashion Disaster #4: You’re ignoring the motivation to get into better shape.
You’ve been thinking about hitting the gym and losing a few pounds but never got to it. Well, your wedding couldn’t be a bigger motivation, so make the most of it. I’m not big on dramatic changes so start slow: walk more than usual, cut out fried foods and sugar from your diet. Stick to what you like: playing ball, hitting the tennis court or running. While cardio helps torch excess calories, make sure you do weights twice a week.
My heartfelt suggestion would be to sign up for dance classes (Salsa, Bollywood, Hip Hop, Bhangra) since they are high on intensity–and FUN. You get to improve your dancing skills and lose a few pounds.
Wedding Fashion Disaster #5: Avoid a last-minute haircut.
The groom should go in for a haircut at least one week before. This gives you (and those around you) time to adjust to your cut and go back to the salon if it isn’t perfect. Go for a fortifying shampoo the night before the big day so that it’ll have some volume.
Use a paste, in a matte texture since they are versatile in creating classic yet contemporary looks.
Have a great day!
