The traditional Punjabi wedding with all the detailed rituals, ceremonies and costumes is the latest trend in both wedding planning and wedding fashion. After all, no other wedding ceremony can replace the glamour, aura and luxury of a big fat Punjabi wedding.
No surprise, most of the high profile and celeb weddings of 2012 took glamour and magnificence to a new level with classic Punjabi touch and extravagant traditional bridal and groom wear. Ever gorgeous Kareena Kapoor stunned both fans and fashionistas with her elegant and classy designer wear on different rituals and occasions of her wedding ceremony with Nawab Saif Ali Khan Pataudi.
The new begum looked extremely classy and sassy in Manish Malhotra saree in traditional red color. The sleeveless short blouse added oomph to the traditional ensemble. However, the sexy bride changed to an ‘ancestral gharara’ for the wedding vows.
Now with another bollywood actress Udita Goswami tying the knot with filmmaker, Mohit Suri, all dressed up in traditional crimson and heavy jewellery in the beginning of 2013 along with elaborate Punjabi wedding rituals and ceremonies, shows the traditional wedding trend is going to stay.
For the Bride:
• So for all those with wedding bells ringing in 2013, following are a few tips and trends to follow:
• Stick to the basic red or crimson for your bridal wear on the final wedding day
• Go for Anarkali type ensembles that incorporate both salwar kameez and lehenga for a chic appeal.
• Lace is all back in fashion with a force. Brides to be can plan their wedding ensembles by adding lace to their blouses, hemlines, necks and bodice.
• While traditional is in, sleek and elegant jewellery with gemstones and diamonds still rules the roost in place of heavy chunky gold jewellery.
For the Groom:
• Beige can never go wrong when it comes to wedding sherwani for a graceful groom, plus beige sherwani presents a highly attractive eye-catching contrast with traditional red bridal silhouette.
• While, ‘sehra’ around the forehead is not mandatory but optional, it looks extremely sassy as Punjabi wedding trends are in vogue and ‘sehra’ is a classic Punjabi wedding symbol for the groom.
• A contrast stole in maroon, red or crimson hung around the neck and shoulders can add glamour and opulence to the overall look.
• Churidar pairs best with a traditional kurta or a sherwani in place of trendy trousers, Afghani pants or pyjamas.
• For footwear, nothing can beat the chic appeal of Punjabi jootis or pointed studded shoes.
For Wedding Ceremony:
Follow complete Punjabi rituals and ceremonies such as haldi ceremony, sangeet ceremony, ribbon cutting, ring ceremony etc. in detain for added fun, glamour, opulence and romance. Happy Wedding!
