Women fashion has seen a vast change in India in last couple of decades, Indian women are always known to wear colorful clothing but there was a pattern in it. The clothing they used to wear were traditional and covered, women really did not have any option to flaunt their figures. It was like an unwritten rule that since you are going to be a wife from now onwards you have to always dress in a conservative manner.
B1ut the great news is that, it is a thing of the past now, as women are getting more and more adventures with their bridal attire every day. They are flaunting their curves and even taking professional’s help to look their best on the biggest day of their lives. Bridal attire is one of the biggest fashion industries in India these days. So let’s take a look at the trends that are seen in Indian weddings nowadays and what influenced these changes.
Indian women who now read Vouge magazines are not afraid about wearing bolder outfits on their weddings, they do not care anymore whether their in-laws are going to love their choices or not. The women are finally going with the theory that if you got it then flaunt it with confidence. So backless cholis, or strapless blouses are seen in middle class weddings, the brides-to-be are getting their underarm and backs waxed to look picture perfect wearing these dresses.
Like everything else in India, Bollywood also influences in bridal dress choices. If a young woman is getting married then she wants to wear the same revealing dress that Alia Bhatt or Deepika Padukone wore for their movies. They also know the designers who made those outfits and can pay a lot of money to make the same bridal dresses for themselves by same famous designers. They can go any length to flaunt the blue saree Deepika wore in a song.
Saree is not the only choice
This is one other major choice, traditional saree and lehengas are not only choices for the young brides. They are wearing dresses that are more light weight and easy to carry, even something on the lines of an indo western gown or a long embroidered skirt with a halter neck top.
Jewelry always played a big part in Indian wedding, it was always like a symbol of property the father has, so brides used to wear all the gold ornaments they were given, no matter if that looks good or not. But now that trend is replaced by lightweight diamond necklaces and earrings, and they wear the accessories according to their outfit and no to show the father’s gift to them.
These changes were necessary for the young women today who wear Jeans and shorts skirts daily, and will probably not feel comfortable wearing heavy sarees and jewelries.
