Latest Styling Tips for 'Summer' Brides
1. Opt for a minimal & lightweight bridal lehenga
First things first brideys, a minimal and lightweight bridal lehenga can actually be a savior at your summer wedding. A bridal lehenga made in lighter fabrics with minimal embroideries and embellishments can take a huge load off you. It'll make it easier for you to frolic around since there won't be a heavy bridal lehenga weighing you down.

2. Don't leave your hair open
A great styling tip for summer brides that's going to save them from a bundle of fuss is to avoid open hairdos; even half-tie hairstyles for that matter. You all are already aware of how difficult it gets to manage open hair in summers. And we believe that being a bride, that would be the last thing you'd want at your wedding. Have your hair tied up in gorgeous accessorized buns or chic messy buns. Ponytails and minimal braids would be a great idea too for your pre-wedding ceremonies and they look super trendy with gowns and dresses by the way!

3. Cooler & lighter fabrics
Just like there were some winter wedding styling Dos & Don'ts, there are for summers too. The most important and presumably one of the best styling tips for summer brides is to opt for cooler and lighter fabrics. Be it your bridal lehenga or other outfits for the rest of your ceremonies, choosing summer fabrics like chiffon, georgette, khadi, cotton, organza, chikankari or rayon should be your go-to.

4. Minimal & waterproof makeup
One of the greatest aspects almost every bride worries about the most for her summer wedding is her makeup. And frankly, bleeding makeup because of sweat is no less than a nightmare for every woman for that matter. To avoid that firstly, choose makeup products that are waterproof, provide a matte finish and are according to your skin types (especially if you have oily skin). Also, ruling the bridal scene off late is the minimal makeup or nude makeup look that a lot of brides have been favoring. Opting for minimal makeup is not only a current fad but also makes up for one of the most trending styling tips for summer brides. Not only would the cakey makeup feel heavy on your face but, chances of it all getting ruined 'cuz of heat and humidity are more. So, opt for lighter makeup and softer shades and try not going too extra.

5. Flowy & breezy outfits
Yet another thoughtful styling tip for summer brides is that you choose flowy and breezy outfits for your pre and post wedding ceremonies. Wearing maxi dresses for your haldi, a summery flared suit for the puja, a crop top and skirt/palazzos combo in flowy fabrics or sarees with beautiful blouses are some of the ideas that you can take cues from. Basically, the aim should be to choose breathable outfits and not necessarily the ones with loads of fabric layers and heavy work.

7. Avoid heavy dupattas
Opting for a single dupatta would be a great idea but, irrelevant of the number of dupattas you pick, make sure to not pick the heavy ones. Lighter dupattas would definitely be super easy to carry with no added weight onto your head.
