The Indian bride’s guide to summer dressing

Summer weddings are for garden mehendis and open-air sangeets. And if you’re one of the brave brides ready to party it up in mango season, you’re going to need an army of pretty-meets-pared-down ensembles.

Keep your colours cool—pick hues like mint green, dusky rose and ivory. If you absolutelymust go darker, skip traditional reds and gold for orange, blue or pink. A sprinkling of sequins (be it on the hem of your lehenga or an embellished blouse) will always spruce things up.

And when it comes to your trousseau, never forget the power of the sari. This summer, invest in pieces that are as comfortable and light as they are adaptable. A lehenga will always grab eyes, but your wardrobe will forever be incomplete without the six yard staple.
