Among all family members, siblings and cousins are probably the most excited ones for your wedding. Make your special squad stand out by coordinating your summer wedding outfits at different ceremonies. After all, they’ve been a part of all the planning processes and tedious shopping trips. This little gesture will make them feel good and the pictures will look amazing. Now for tips and hacks to do it right, read the trends for this summer:
1. Colour Coordination
Turn up the swag with colour-coordinated summer wedding outfits for your siblings and cousins at the engagement, Haldi or Mehndi ceremonies. Each of them can have their individual choice of Lehengas, Achkan, Dhoti or Indo-western outfits while the colours of ‘Team Bride’/’Team Groom’ shine bright. You can choose shades of yellow, green, olive or pastels for Mehndi and opt for red, maroon or turquoise for the cocktail or wedding. Even an ombre effect of the same colour family will look good. After all, harmonised colours in a big family photo are always a visual delight!
2. Pattern Coordination
Not in a mood for colour coordination? Why not pick patterns that can be used to design the summer wedding outfits for your siblings. Choose a motif or print that can be easily included in everyone’s outfits. All the sisters can go for contrasting coloured Lehengas on the Sangeet night with the same pattern. You can opt for floral, embroidery, Bandhani patterns for ethnic outfits. Choose from blouson, pencil, fit & flared, backless, shimmery or summer dresses for your pool parties, cocktails and bachelorette nights. Men can go for different colours of Kurtas, wedding sherwanis, Bandhgala or shirts with same prints, designs or embroideries.
3. Dupattas, Pagdis and Jackets
Another chic way to coordinate your summer wedding outfit with your siblings is to get matching Dupattas. The groom and his brothers can go for coordinated Uttariyas or Nehru jackets for a dapper look. Even if you wear different outfits on your Mehndi, just throw in coordinated Dupattas to get the cutest wedding pictures. Brothers of the bride can coordinate their Pagdis/Safas with the bride’s lehenga by matching the colour, print or pattern.
4. Coordinated Accessories
Here comes an exciting part where you can coordinate your accessories with your siblings for your summer wedding this year. Go for matching Maang Tikkas, nose rings or necklaces on the wedding and Potli bags or clutches on the reception; floral tiaras, hats for a thematic bachelorette party and funky sunglasses or umbrellas on your Haldi. Groom and his brothers can coordinate their ties, tie pins and pocket squares for the reception, brooches, watches and Juttis for the wedding and printed shorts, bandanas and oversized sunglasses for a bachelor’s pool party.
Colours, patterns, styles, designs, accessories...go as creative as you can while coordinating your wedding outfits with your siblings. Don’t be afraid to experiment with new trends and styles, mix and match your costumes and take tips from latest wedding inspirations.
