Your Seasonal Color Guide For Wedding Lehenga

While red and gold are the traditional hues for an Indian bride, a little experimenting could give marvellous results. Every bride wants to look flawless on her wedding. The most important element that needs to shine through is obviously the wedding Lehenga. Colors are to play with and have fun with. It’s time to break the mainstream bridal lehenga palate and make a statement with your outfit on your wedding. Additionally, there are certain colors that are just made for different seasons! Here is your seasonal color guide for wedding lehenga .

SEASONAL COLOR GUIDE FOR WEDDING LEHENGA

 

NOVEMBER – FEBRUARY: MESMERISING WINTER

The winter months are attributed to dullness and laziness. One only wishes to cuddle up in their blanket all the time and never move. Therefore, to please the eyes in such a season the colors need to be sharp, dark and clear. Go BOLD! open up your winter palate to colors like steel blue, icy cobalt, hot pink, strawberry pink, fuchsia, ruby red, and emerald green.What to avoid: pastels, light colors, gold, orange or beige. If your wedding is in the winter months, it is your time to experiment with the winter colors and turn those heads around.

MARCH AND APRIL: LOVELY LIVELY SPRING


Spring means blossoming flowers, popping colors everywhere and a new energy in the air. To equalise with that freshness in the air, if you are marrying in these two months of spring you have a wide range of colors to try on! Transition into the month of warmness with warm and comforting tones like an uplifting camel, magical corals, luscious limes, sun-kissed goldens and pleasing peaches. Avoid wearing dark and sharp shades if you want the picture perfect outfit.

MAY- JULY: REJUVENATING SUMMER

Honestly, these are my PASTELS. To preserve the coolness in summer the perfect shades, therefore, become the delightful brightness. Summer makes everyone happy and chirpy, doesn’t it? The power of the sun makes the days longer and illuminates us with our favourite hues, they are so much fun and bring so much energy even in its subtle undertone. So in this season, go with lusty lavender, delicate pink, misty mint, mauve, baby blue, light lime and teal. Pair colors together and experiment with some lightness and funkiness. What to avoid: Dark colors, monotonous gloomy blues. (Insider: I would personally go with lavender, it's such a gorgeous fresh shade! Totally breathtaking)

Perfect Wedding Day Makeup

Apart from the gorgeous outfit, breathtaking jewellery and all the other accessories, there is one thing that is very significant in enhancing your look. In fact, it’s the most important factor in deciding how you look on your wedding day. Yes, it’s the makeup. No matter how much time you have spent preparing your dress and other things, if the makeup goes wrong, it can almost spoil your day.

SEVEN AUSPICIOUS PARIKRAMAS OF WEDDING

Although we, Indians, are abundant in customs and rituals but seems incognizant about the theories behind them. With the passage of time, not even our dressing but our culture has been overhauled a lot. In this fast paced life, most of the people become negligent towards a decisive and essential event of their life “Wedding”. To grab those people attention and make their involution in the exquisite moment of their life, we have focused on the Seven Auspicious Parikramas of Wedding. Here, we have tried to unveil each and every phase of the significant event “Saptpadi,” in Sanskrit, of wedding. Let’s fragment this word Saptpadi, Sapt means seven and Padi means foot i.e. making betrothal to be together in every phase of life

In the seven circumambulations ceremony, Agni is weighed as so pure and sanctified that becomes the witness of this bond. Parikramas around fire make that bond immortal and fortified their relation. Even, through rhymes of Sanskrit shlokas in the following rounds, priest invites god and goddess to give their blessings for bride and groom’s new journey:



In first pledge of their new journey, they pray for the sustenance of their family and expect for the blessing of God to maintain respect, understanding between each other. Bride promises to fulfill all the needs and take all household responsibilities .Groom take responsibility to keep that promise and nurture his family. They both take vow to be venerating towards each other.

In second pledge of their journey of togetherness, they pray for the wedlock having mental, emotional, physical and spiritual support. They take vows to become the shield for each other in every difficult phase of life. They pray to the Lord to make their companionship never ending and vow to love each other forever.

In the third phera, bride and groom both adjure the God to be prosperous and wealthy. They want to be economically strong not to fulfill their wishes, their children requirements but to accomplish their unearthly obligations. They vow to maintain their commitment and trueness towards each other.
We all know that without compatibility in opinion and action, no relationship can be long-lasting. Without this, that bond‘s grace fades away. Even to strengthen the backbone of family, giving respect to elders and taking care of all family members are very essential. So in the fourth round of saptpadi, couple vow to respect each other parents and maintain the dignity of their family values. Groom conveys his thanks to his wife to care for his family and to bestow felicity and pleasure in his life. Bride vows to be faithful towards him and his family.

5 Exceptional Ways To Look Best On Your Wedding Day

When it comes to the most important day of one’s life, compromise isn’t a word. Along with all other things to go perfect, everyone wants to look best on their wedding day. And because it’s the most special day, it should be in the most special way. To go with the crowd is too mainstream. This is the day when you not only want to look beautiful but different as well. Everyone wants a look so as to snatch a ‘wow’ at every glance.


INTER-CASTE MARRIAGES: WHAT IS THE BIG DEAL?

Recently, I overheard this conversation between my neighbours and it got me thinking about this whole concept of why our society freaks out when it comes to inter-caste marriages.
Aunty no.1: Oh, did you hear Sharmaji’s daughter had a love marriage, that too an intercaste?
Aunty no.2: Yes, I heard. Soon our kids would want to follow her steps; she’s such a disgrace to our society.
Have you noticed the word ‘disgrace’ they used to describe a girl who probably just married the love of her life? If she’s a disgrace, then I wonder what thieves, serial killers, rapists, and psychopaths are called in our society?
Also, did you know that just 5% of Indian marriages are inter-caste marriages? So this is going to be my attempt out of a million ones, to try and change this percentage and the definition of ‘disgrace’ that our society holds.

1) IT’S NOT ABOUT WHAT THEY ARE; IT’S ABOUT WHO THEY ARE

It’s time that some of our orthodox Indians realize that it’s not about the caste/religion someone belongs to, it’s about who they are as a person, it’s about their willingness to shower their partner with all their love and compassion, to be with them during the good, bad and messed-up times. And above all, it’s about how much happiness they bring to your daughter/son.

2)  SOCIETY *SIGH*

“Log kya kahengey is probably the deadliest and of course, the shittiest line people can say to keep you out of getting into inter-caste marriages; and it doesn’t just end there. Just a single phrase like that has the ability to shatter your dreams into a million pieces and it’s going to continue doing until one of these days, we stop caring about what others have to say about our personal life. Can I get an Amen here?
Also, if you try to speak up against this, steel yourself from the shitstorm coming your way because of it.
Now it’s up to you. Meaningless comments by people who have no life of their own or the happiness of your son/daughter? What matters more?

3)  LET’S TALK ABOUT EVOLUTION 

You know how Heraclitus, the Greek philosopher said, ‘change is the only constant in life’. These people basically just refuse to make sense out of it. Living in a particular time zone, with the same traditions and way of living for forever is practically impossible. To give you a little extreme example, you know how species that don’t adapt to their changing environment, don’t survive for long. That’s pretty much the point, except for the fact that it is not about your survival, it’s about your pride in your so-called caste.
Go pick up today’s newspaper, check the date on it. Says 2016 huh? Now ADAPT!

4) EVEN OUR CLASSICS SUPPORTED INTERCASTE MARRIAGES

Since childhood, we’re being taught about Mahabharata and Ramayana, no matter what caste we belong to. But did you now there have been a lot of instances of inter-caste marriages in Mahabharata?
Dushyant married Shakuntala, who was a Brahmin. Kshatriya king Shantanu married a low-born fisherwoman, Satyavati, Bheema married Hidimba, and this is just to name a few.

5) KEEPING UP WITH THE WORLD

We have reached beyond the moon, it is now possible to jump-start a brain out of a coma using ultrasounds, and space travel for an average man is becoming a reality. Living in a world which is progressing at such a fast pace, we continue to live in the 1940s where our main concerns involve our children getting married out of caste. Is this really the right way to go? Are we really making progress?

Early 20’s!!! 15 Reasons, It’s Wedding Time For You…

As it is said, Wedding is crowned to be the turning point of anyone’s life. Although it is supposed to be the one-time event, yet less of care and patience is adopted while defining the RIGHT TIME for the mega event. Everyone, except the supposed to be bride/groom, pop up with their own logics to justify the timing of your D-day. Let’s take up some of them one by one:-
PLAN A
  1. CASTE FUNDA- KING OF DEVILS

Boy/Girl is of OUR caste, rich, good background, parents government employees and blah blah. Such DEALS doesn’t strike every day to everyone. Consider yourself lucky. This is perfect wedding time for you.
  1. CONTROL MACHINE

You are very irresponsible; we want you to be married. Loads of responsibilities will surely bring you back on track in time and save you from getting spoiled; else, you will ruin our image in the society.
  1. FOREIGN TOUCH

One time jackpot offer. The boy/girl has returned after studying in foreign. You should not miss this golden opportunity. A double bonanza of luxurious and high status in society.

  1. KUNDLI TURNS ON WEDDING TIME

Here comes in the super-role of Panditji. Let alone anybody else, he is going to convince his prospective (CLIENTS) that according to his study, it is going to be the perfect (made for each other) match. Well!!! He is going to get DAKSHINA or commission, as may be called, for acting as an (successful) intermediary.

  1. RELATIVES MENACE

Sonpur wale uncle/ Padhos wali aunty and all other relatives keep asking us about your marriage. It doesn’t look good excusing them time and again. It’s so embarrassing BETA, Don’t you think it’s your parents’ insult. You have to marry to shut their mouths. Please try to understand our problem. Everyone is waiting for the wedding time to come.
  1. TRAP DEAL

You want to go to abroad for trip. We have an idea!!! Get married and enjoy your honeymoon in foreign, and there is icing on cake, parents are going to finance it as their wedding gift for you.
BEWARE– High chances of you being caught here. It's an extra lurial offer to book the wedding time.

  1. PEER PRESSURE

Al l your friends are getting married, so you should also do it now. See them!!! They all are not mad; they are doing it because it's the best wedding time period. From birth till death, comparison goes on and we keep on running in this rat race one after the other.
