With hundreds of wedding outfit options outs there, how is a newly-engaged girl supposed to find the best one for her? Yes, you have your Pinterest inspiration board swelling with ideas, but it may be time to look to our stars for answers. Apparently, the zodiac signs can reveal a lot about your perfect bridal look. Scroll down to see what the stars have in store for you on your wedding day.
The Aries brides are radiant and confident. They are often known for their bold nature. So they can easily mix and match traditional and modern styles. Drape a saree in a novel way or wear a flared red lehenga choli with a golden coat for the post wedding party. Opt for soft necklines. Add a bold big maang tikka with other ornaments. Bright red and pink are Aries' lucky colors for this year.
Sensual and stylish – that’s a Taurus girl for you. They are all pretty romantic and their style sense is often so feminine and timeless. They can go for an off shoulder style in a traditional way or an elegant laced and embroidered saree. Wearing modern jewelry will look better on them. Blue, violets, turquoise and cream color would suit them the best.
Gemini brides are so full of life and they can surprise you with their outfit choices. So, expect an eye-catching blend of fabrics, textures and prints that’s sure to steal the attention of her hubby-to-be and guests alike. Their lucky colors are green, white, pale green, cream. Geminians are good to go if a simple Kerala saree is tied with a modern twist. To get inspired, watch Tarun Tahiliani LFW 2017 spring Indo western collection, where he brought in a surprise element in to lehenga choli with a poncho.
This one is the most traditional bride out there. They are the sentimental ones who would even try their mother’s wedding saree for their own marriage. But we suggest Cancer girls use some heirloom jewelry and colors like pastels, white cream and pink. Now that vintage saree styles are back, Cancer brides can proudly show off their favorites with a Kerala-style jumka and Kashumala.
The Leo bride is often considered as a rule-breaker who loves being the center of attraction. They would happily choose a style that keeps all eyes on them the whole day. So, the best bet would be zari, zari and more zari on your attire. The ornaments can also be lavish: a pair of big jumkas and a heavy neck piece, for example. The lucky colors of Leo are orange, sun yellow, gold, yellow.
The girls born under this Earth sign are feminine and elegant. They are often drawn toward simple style and are so detail-oriented. Virgos can try out a heavy bordered Kanchipuram saree or a stone-embedded lehenga saree. Their lucky colors would be gold, peach, pink, cream. Adding temple jewelry or antique ornaments would accentuate your look.
The ultra-feminine Libra is a lover of all things beautiful. Brides born under this sign gravitate toward glitzy embellishments, feminine allure and over-the-top beauty. And yes, they sure make a style statement. A rich Kanchipuram silk saree with a beautiful designer blouse would suffice their look. They can also choose bold pieces of colorful jewelry to pump up their style quotient. A golden choker is always a good pick. Violet, royal blue and rose pink look the best on Libras.
Most Scorpios are naturally sensual. So, they would choose a silhouette that shows off their curves. Deep necklines and designer light-weight sarees or a fish-tail lehenga would look best on them. Rock the overall look with a beautiful kamarband (waist chain). Their lucky colors are deep red, maroon and brown.
The Sagittarius brides are pretty experimental, so a playful style that stands out from the pack will be her best bet. They would choose some unique style or fabric, which would definitely stand out. Most of them appear with the latest designs in the wedding market. Although they can rock their look in any color, we suggest they choose soothing colors such as lilac, violet and yellow. A good pair of chandeliers and a beautiful oddyanam can complement the getup.
The grounded and goal-oriented Capricorns are efficient and driven. A traditional Kerala saree with a beautiful designer blouse and antique jewelery would look best on them. A good piece of maantikka and a waist chain would enhance the look. Capricorn girls look their best in black, blue, gray and green look best. As black is not suitable for wedding, you can add it to your blouse or accessories.
The Aquarius girl is a bit of an enigma. Those born under this sign tend to do things in their own way. And their style often veers toward the eclectic. Oftentimes, they are all nature lovers with a good taste in fashion. So it’s pointless to limit them to a few particular styles. But, vintage styles such as a traditional silk saree would look good on them. Team it up with a chunky finger ring, big ear studs and antique ornaments. The best color for Aquarians are green, turquoise blue and electric blue.
The dreamy and romantic Pisces bride would prefer a Cinderella-like wedding. A flowy saree with heavy stonework, a flared lehenga or a heavily embellished anarkali would definitely accentuate their signature style. Blue, sky blue and turquoise are meant for them. When it comes to jewelry, they can opt for heavy kangans and chokers.
