Can’t decide what to wear at your wedding? Or looking to buy a dress for your best friend’s reception? We have just the guide for you.
There are many things to consider like budget, color scheme and couture label. As one of the memorable times of your life, you want to make sure that you are styled elegantly. There are simple ways you can choose an ideal bridal dress depending on the event, vibe, and aesthetic.
1. Tailoring style
Tailoring is the most important factor one has to consider while choosing a dress. Bridal couture has a lot of options that will suit your silhouette. They include quintessential A-line gowns, traditional gharara, lehenga choli, fishtail gowns, and floor length maxis. For an hourglass figure, you will exude confidence in a mermaid gown or you can go for a floor length maxi if you want to accentuate your height.
Now, you would want something that not only fits you but also adds to your confidence. According to your body type, you can choose to highlight your best features.
2.Traditional or modern embroidery
Pakistani bridal collections have a rich trend of stitching with traditional golden thread work, dabka, mukaish work. So, if you are looking to shine in old glamour then zardozi design with intricate needlework would be ideal. Nowadays, you can also go for a chic vibe with modern embroidery done with sequins, metallic threads, and Swarovski crystals.
3. Fabric galore
This is also very important to consider as a bride or an attendee. For your choice of fabric, you can go with banarsi or jamawar. This would look great on all events whether it is a simple Nikkah event or an extravagant reception.
If you have a summer or spring wedding then an airy chiffon or raw silk dress would add to the whole experience. For winter galas, you can go for a more alluring look which will be achieved with a velvet fitted bodice and lehenga or a deep green sari.
4. Dark or light hues
Next comes the color which will decide how your dress will look during the event as well as in photos. Dark hues look perfect at night and breezy pastels look great at day events. While choosing a color, make sure that you know the venue, floral setting, and the scale of the event. But do not put comfort on the back burner.
Gold and reds are some of the most popular colors in Pakistani bridal fashion which looks good in any style. Meanwhile, choosing pastels or ivory for a more subdued yet modern look works best as well.
5. Bridal appointment
Once you have chosen a dress and you have the cut, color and design in your mind, the next step is to make your bridal appointment with the label. Take your bridal squad and family with you for a second opinion. Make a list prior to the day so you can make the most of it. Also, make sure you have a clear vision of what you want. In the end, have fun with your experience and make it memorable for yourself.
