Patterns & Colors
The rich Indian textile heritage, with stylistic cuts and combinations is poised to become the fashion statement of the coming century. A short-stature bride should avoid wearing heavy outfits like silks and prefer georgettes and crepe. Similarly, a tall bride should fancy heavy embroidered silks. Pinks, oranges, reds, saffrons and blues are a rage among the Indian brides. Bright reds, shades of dark pink also enhance the persona of a fair bride. Similarly, for a dusky bride, shades of peach, light brown would embellish her appearance.

Styles And Drapes
Nowadays many young brides favor the straight skirt lehengas because they don't want to be weighed down by the heavy gold and silver embroidery on full-skirted lehengas. The bride wanting the perfect style should smartly combine the conventional with the unconventional. A heavy embroidered dupatta can be teamed with the lehenga, amalgamating the conventional with the unconventional. Simple and elegant styles create more impact than fancy and heavy ones. For a traditional look, the ever-beautiful sari as a perfect outfit for a bride. A sari has the unique ability to make a woman look traditional and trendy adding a touch of glamor to the most awaited day.

Bridal wear should not consist of organzas and tissues since the garment is at a risk of getting damaged permanently in the long run. Crepe, heavy georgettes, silks, nets lend grace and poise to the bridal ensemble.
