Before commencing with full-fledged revelries, the most significant part in a Punjabi Wedding is seeking the blessings of divine god with positivity and grace. So, this is the first function where a bride needs to follow the queue of fad trends. Wish to ace the look with finesse? We are going to tell you how to match it well!

  • Mainly, it’s the suit which works the best in such functions. A heavy georgette Patiala Salwar topped with a gorgeous kameez and a contrasting net dupatta can bloom the atmosphere with full glitz and glam.
  • You can opt for a heavier Anarkali keeping the palette light and subtle.
  • We suggest all punjabi bride's to keep the jewellery minimal, to keep the look serene, however, a light necklace or a simple diamond set would be an apt choice to add the glow!

A Punjabi Bride knows when to hit the stage of zero-hour with moxie and without any nervousness. Are you ready for your ‘Love Never Felt So Good’ moment? If yes, then first you need to buckle up with your dreamy engagement outfit!
