The hottest fashion trend right now in the wedding circuit for a bride is undoubtedly the use of mirror work on all kinds of attires. Be it a bridal lehenga, a bridal blouse, a saree or even a gown, you can see how all the urban fashion designers have found ways to beautifully incorporate the use of mirrors in their apparel.
Akanksha Gajria, Manish Malhotra and Abhinav Mishra are some of the leading designers using this in the best manner. You can wear such an outfit for any of your pre or post-wedding ceremonies, according to the colour of the attire you choose. Make sure that you include this wedding wear in your wardrobe!
Add Character to Your Hairstyle With Eye-catching Hair Accessories
Do not forget to flaunt your hairstyle with blingy and unique hair accessories. Since a bun is the most common hairstyle seen on the wedding day, you can experiment with your hairstyle for the Sangeet, Mehndi or Haldi. Go for a tiara, or a fancy hair clip or a bunch of floral pins. It can be anything but make sure that you do not leave your hair accessory-less!
Contrasting is the Way to Go

One of the latest trends that have become popular is the use of contrasting colours to create the perfect bridal outfit. It can be a case of the lehenga and blouse being completely different in colour or the embroideries or patterns on the outfit of a contrasting colour to that of the base fabric. Red-green, yellow-blue and maroon-golden are some of the top colour combinations you can try. The best part is that you can experiment with such wedding wear even on the wedding day.
Go for Heavy Bridal Jewellery

If you have been following any recent big weddings on Instagram, then you must have an idea about how heavy bridal jewellery has made a huge comeback, making it a wedding wear essential for all the brides this wedding season. However, the trick here is to look elegant even after wearing heavy jewellery. For this, go for a heavy necklace piece and that’s it! Do not go overboard, especially in the neck region. Let your outfit have a say in your overall look as well.
Get Some Part of Your Look Customised
Customisation of at least one thing in your wedding attire is the latest trend that everyone is taking up. It can be your jutti, the ring, your mehndi design or even the attire itself. How about having your portrait woven into the pallu of your saree? Do include the idea of customisation for your wedding wear for a unique look.
For the Groom
Ditch Sherwani for an Achkan
Aren’t you tired of seeing every other groom wearing a sherwani? Well, you don’t need to go with the same style as now you have the option of an Achkan. It is a bit longer and more classic than a typical sherwani, giving you a different look. Moreover, you can pair it with either a straight pyjama or an urban Dhoti. The options are aplenty!
About Time You Tried the Floral Prints!
It is time for men to embrace floral patterns and include them in their wedding wear! Depending on the colours you choose, they not only give you a royal look but also a summery and fresh look. The gold and black combination obviously gives you the heritage look which is perfect for your Reception night. However, go for bright and light colours like pink, yellow and red for occasions like Haldi and Sangeet.
Do Not Shy Away From Wearing a Necklace
A groom wearing a necklace is back in fashion. Make sure that you choose the right one for you according to the colour of the attire you have. Stick to just one tone of colour for the necklace. If you are going for the royal look, a necklace is definitely a wedding wear essential you would not want to miss!
Go With a Single Tone From Head to Toe
Now, here is a fashion trend you must definitely try on at least in one of the events. Choose a colour in which you are most confident and wear everything of the same colour; the Achkan, the bottoms, the Pagdi, the Juttis and even the jewellery if any.
Try Quirky Accessories
