A Wedding Guide for the South Indian Bride! 

1. Bridal Outfit

We must start at the very beginning! Choose your wedding outfit. In most cases, the tradition asks for the bride to don a saree. While the mind immediately goes to Kanjeevaram sarees, you do have options if your tastes lie elsewhere. Mysore Silk Sarees are lightweight and easy to wear, especially if you have a full day of festivities. If you don't want to wear silk, opt for a Chettinad Sari. It is spun handloom of cotton, and extremely fashionable with lines and patterns. The calling card of this saree is the contrasting borders.

You have options and remember, choose something you are happy with - the memories will live on forever and you want to look your best!

2. Wedding Blouse 

Yes, shopping for a blouse for your wedding saree is a separate task! Opt for contrasting colours and look to take our ensemble to the next level. If you have opted for a relatively simple saree, choose a snazzy blouse design to jazz up the outfit! Do not make the mistake of leaving this decision for the last minute - your saree will be incomplete without an equally fantastic blouse to match it!

3. Bridal Makeup

Once your outfit has been finalised, you must begin the process of your bridal look. Look around for make-up artists in your city offering samples and trial sessions. It is an important task girl, and you need to be on the point with the look. Tell your chosen MUA about your outfit, colours, and contrasts so the bridal look can be planned accordingly.

4. Hairstyle

Here you have some room to improvise. If you have chosen the traditional route with your saree, opt for a modern hairdo. A side braid, traditional bun or a fishtail braid with Jadai - the world is your oyster. Talk to your hairstylist and experiment with some looks before finalising.

Once your outfit and styling are finalised, you can select your jewellery. South Indian brides have a lot of creativity when it comes to jewellery as the options are numerous! From temple jewellery to jadau to diamonds - the world is your oyster. Temple jewellery is traditional and offers beautiful motifs and symbolism. Jadau jewellery is set off brilliantly against Kanjeevaram sarees and let's not forget, diamonds are a girl's best friend! Choose wisely.
