It's a bride's responsibility to set the tone right for the wedding fashion. With her beautiful ensembles, she conveys how much subtle or how much bold she wants to go, especially with her blouse style. A right kind of blouse can do wonders to the wedding ensemble. It is the most subtle way to uplift any outfit to the next level of perfection.
To up your blouse style on your wedding day, we have curated this amazing array of latest blouse styles along with all the key things to consider while choosing the best one for you. To nail that bridal look, just follow through!
1. Let's Start With The Right Colour Palette
Choosing the right colour palette is the most important factor while deciding your blouse style. If you are planning a beach wedding (probably a goa wedding) then you should opt for pastels, powder blues, some neons, and beige colour(is a must). A two-toned ensemble also does wonders to the bride. Choose a neon(ish) shade for the blouse and opt for a slightly subtle shade from the same colour palette for your lehenga.
2. A Perfect Blouse Design For You
After the colour comes the blouse design. A perfect design for your blouse can uplift the wedding fashion to the next level. For a traditional wedding opt for a heavily worked blouse style with a Dori-tie back-neck. For a more stylish look, you can choose among mirror-work or heavy sequin work. For a minimal wedding, go for a sparkly, sheen fabric along with metallic tassels and a subtle border for your blouse. For our fashionista bride, ruffled blouse style with fabric tassels work the wonders.
3. Perfect Tassel Game For You

A perfect set of tassels will change your blouse style to 360°. Tassels have a very strong fashion game in the wedding ensemble. If you have a classy chic blouse style in your mind then just go for metallic tassels with the gold accent. For a big fat Indian wedding, opt for gigantic fabric tassels, you can also go for the personalized tassels with your names on it. For a subtle yet stylish look, go for multicolour thread tassels.
4. Right Kind Of Embellishment For You

Always consider the weather conditions, the overall functionality of the look and latest fashion trend before choosing the right embellishment for your blouse style. Multicolour thread embroidery has its own limitations. Rather than going for fully embroidered blouse choose a self-design fabric, that way the blouse will look very functional yet stylish.
For a multipurpose blouse style, never go for a specific and restricted design. Always leave some room for style change in the future. For a heavily embroidered lehenga, go for a slightly subtle blouse. A contrast always looks appealing.
5. How To Choose The Right Fabric

Fabric plays the most important role in deciding the right blouse style for you. Choosing a perfect fabric have to be your prime concern. You should never overlook the fabric quality over some bling and glitz. For an authentic Indian wedding, a bride has to wear her wedding ensemble for at least 6-7 hours straight and with the wrong fabric, things can get a hell lot more uncomfortable for the bride.
If your blouse budget is slightly constraint then go for the cotton-blend fabrics or you can choose cotton lining for the silk look-alike, this way you can be super comfortable and can still save some bucks on your wedding blouse style.
6. Fitting Sessions Are Vital
Wedding season does not just bring lots of happiness and excitement, in fact, a truck-load of last minutes anxiety comes along for the bride. That anxiety causes a lot of stress and weight variations for the bride. So, for your wedding blouse fittings, you have to be extra careful. Always have 2-3 fitting sessions to avoid any last minute fitting disasters right on the wedding day!
Always schedule your last fitting session just two days prior to the wedding day. When it comes to wedding blouse fittings, always save some margins for the alterations, so that you can re-style that blouse in the future. At last, never let that "fake body image pressure" get to your head. Always go for your right measurements, no fake assumptions, and aspirational sizes. At your wedding, it has to be all about #selflove.
7. Always Keep The Tradition In Line

Every Indian wedding has a set of rituals and traditions and being the bride, your wedding ensemble should never over-step those traditions. If your wedding is also one of those traditional ones, then always plan your blouse style accordingly. If lots of skin show is not welcome in your tradition then go for a semi-sheer or patched back-neck blouse style.
If you are a southern bride and can't experiment too much with the blouse style then just add a traditional motifs patch for your wedding blouse back-neck. Authentic Rajasthani brides have to don their traditional Poshak for the wedding. To style-up your Poshak, you can experiment with the embellishment of your blouse. Like opting for a contrasting embroidery or mirror-work, pearl embellishments for a sophisticated rich look. You can always add those gigantic fabric tassels to your Poshak's blouse.
8. Take Some Inspirations From The Bollywood Divas
If you are real-life's Alia Bhatt from Humpty Sharma Ki Dhulhaniya and want your own Kareena Kapoor Vala Designer Blouse for your wedding day then worry no more! Bollywood designers are the sole determinants for every wedding season's bridal fashion. If you are also eyeing a designer blouse for a while and now you are getting cold feet about it then we suggest doing the opposite. It's not very hard to style a designer blouse for your wedding.
If the blouse is too glam then plan a slightly subtle ensemble around it. If the blouse has heavy embellishments then choose a simple neckpiece with big Maang Tikka Always try to balance the look with your bridal makeup. If your blouse is a statement piece then avoid styling it with a contrasting colour, it would be too dramatic. Either choose the same shade or similar shade from the same colour palette.
No bride should ever shy away from getting her to wish fulfilled on her wedding day. No matter how dramatic and exaggerated that wish may sound to others. It's your day to have your way.
