If you’re a to - be bride, you need no introduction to the pressure of looking your svelte, sharp best on your big day. It’s the day you know you’ll remember for years to come, which is why looking good doesn’t matter as much as looking good together does. Yep, we’re trespassing that treacherous area of color coordinated wedding outfits for the bride and groom- an area much feared for the many faux pas it has contributed to in the history of weddings.
But color coordinating outfits is really not that big a deal, you say? Well, think again. The intricate zari embroidery on your dupatta and that on his nehru jacket could make all the difference between making you look either like you’re walking the ramp as a power couple, or that you’re dressed up like Looney Tunes on a costume show.
So if you’re planning to look good together on your big day, take note. There is an extra mile you both must traverse to make sure your outfits add the missing glitz in the other’s, but it can be an easy journey with these five easy hacks!
1. Dusty Pink
Dusty pink is a safe bet (yes, guaranteed!) when it comes to color coordinating. This look is our absolute favourite for weddings that happen during the day- the pink really makes you shine, but with pastels creating a storm these days, we dare you to don the luxe colour at night!
2. Go Gold
South Indian weddings have it slightly easier when it comes to colour coordinating, since cream and gold are two colours that dominate wedding trousseaus. Not just that, for when who wish to wear a lungi, the cream with a gold border is a classic. Opt for silks for a richer look, and brides, don’t forget that gorgeous gajra on your hair!
3. Bottoms Up
This one’s for men who feel slightly geeky wearing bright colours, and for their counterparts who love the vivids! Try and match just the pants with the bride’s outfit- it needn’t be too bright, though. For a heavy white choli worn by the bride, for example, the groom can don a pair of straight white pants. Easy peasy!
4. Mirror Image
If color coordinating is really your thing, we suggest you try this- opt for the exact same colours when deciding your outfits. Of course, a minute difference is alright (in fact, it might even look good) but on the whole, keep it simple.
5. Accessorize It Right
If your man isn’t big on colours, try this: get him to accessorize with a matched colour. This could be a pocket square or his tie. A small accessory can go a long way in making you look like you belong with each other on the big day!
8. Match The Choli with Sherwani
A rather unusual way to style your outfits and colour coordinate them is by matching your choli's colour with that of the groom's sherwani. Isn't it cool?
