Elegent Wedding Fashion


In India, the wedding rituals and clothes make the wedding as much as the bride and her groom. Both look their splendid best in gorgeous outfits. Not just the couple, but the guests attending the family and the relatives are often seen dressed to the teeth.

The bride is usually dressed up in auspicious colors, whereas the bridegroom is dressed to exude a regal aura. The bridesmaids and best men are often dressed on a par with the bride and the groom, but not as elaborately as the bride and groom. All the folks attending the marriage are decked out with gold jewelry including the bride and sometimes the groom.

The ladies are additionally adorned with henna patterns all over their palms, hand, forearms, legs and feet. Sometimes henna patterns are replaced with alta designs which are short lived and easily removable.

In some cultures, the groom also sports henna, although it is less elaborate or muted.  Indian weddings generally tend to continue for several days and new attire is worn each day. All these dresses and the colour symbolize the meaning of marriage and the period that follows it. An Indian wedding is one that gives more importance to details like different rituals and the various attires one wears to attend them. A wedding dress or bridal gown is the dress worn by the bride during a wedding ceremony.  The color, style and ceremonial importance of the gown can depend on the religion and culture of the wedding participants.
