The Latest Bridal Fashion Trends for an Indian Wedding: Kyra & Vir

Are you getting married soon? You’ll remember your wedding day forever! One of the most fun aspects of planning an Indian wedding is all of the Indian wedding clothing and jewelry. 

And ShaadiShop has teamed up with another South Asian-focused, female led tech company Kyra & Virto help you stay up-to-date on Indian wedding and general Indian fashion trends.

Even though ShaadiShop’s role in planning an Indian wedding is to help couples find and get a great deal at their venue, that doesn’t preclude us from sharing useful information about all the other things you’ll need for your wedding. Plus who doesn’t love all the fashion and jewelry, it’s one of the best parts of any Indian wedding!?!

Since you’re probably going through the process of planning your wedding right now, you know that planning an Indian  wedding is complicated. There are a ton of decisions to make – from food and the venue to the décor and seating charts, and there lots of choices for everything. 

And of course two of the biggest decisions of the entire wedding day is your wedding lehenga/sari and reception gown. If you’re like most brides, you’ve probably imagined yourself on your wedding day ever since you were little. Watching Bollywood and other movies, dreaming, planning, and when you were older, maybe even a little Pinterest-stalking to find exactly what you want to wear on your wedding day. And now you’re here…it’s time to turn that dream into a reality.

From colors to silhouettes to fabrics, the possibilities are endless! But don’t worry and don’t get overwhelmed – this article is all about helping you get direct access to the most up-to-date and fabulous trends for Indian and all South Asian brides – especially those who are looking to make a fashion statement on their big day. 

Note: Whether you’re currently planning your own wedding or looking for tips for outfits to wear at weddings during the upcoming winter and spring wedding seasons, these fashion tips are great for you too!

{What to Wear This Season for Your Indian Wedding}

Lighten It Up: Traditionally, heavy jewelry has always been the way to go, but not anymore. Choosing key pieces of jewelry that really complement and enhance your signature look is the way to go. Whether it’s a pair of earrings or the ideal statement necklace you can really step up your wedding look by finding the perfect piece of sparkle to accessorize with. 

Matchy-Matchy: Matching outfits are a ‘yes’ this season. Forget the cliché of matching being too much; coordinated outfits are so in. We suggest doing a matching color or patterned fabric, and transforming the cloth into something that is unique for both the bride and the groom while also showing their wedding guests how in unison they are.

Hot in Pink: Pretty in pink? Don’t mind if we do! Hot pink is a must for brides this season. Dare to be bold and stand out with hot pink lehengas that will be a look that any bride can rock. Pair the bright pink look with a few varying shades of pink, from pastel to deep fuchsia, to give dimension and an added flare to the look.

Radiant Red: Who doesn’t love a little red? This beautiful shade will help any already-stunning Indian bride stand out even more. We love a bright red sari paired with the perfect shade of red lipstick to wow your wedding guests. Don’t forget to pair with fun heels that have a little bit of sparkle and a lot of comfort. 

Combo Cloths: Indian wedding brides want to stand out among their many gorgeous guests and we couldn’t agree more (since the day is all about you). We are all about adding different textures and fabrics to help with that look. Mixing velvets with satins and silk or chiffon and lace make for an eye-popping look that you and your soon-to-be husband will not be able to get enough of.

Classic White: There are certain colors that have always been the norm in Indian weddings, but it’s okay to deter away from those. White is a traditional wedding color that brides are starting to fall in love with all over again. An all-white sari or lehenga, with added shimmering details of diamonds, glitter, or rhinestones, makes for a look that you will want to keep wearing even after your wedding.

Sari Switch-Ups: East meets West is a concept that is popping up everywhere when it comes to current fashion trends. Mixing traditional South Asian pieces with more modern accessories or styles are becoming all the rage. People are looking to bridge the gap between the old and the new and want to do that with how they express themselves through fashion. So, make sure you are expressing yourself on your big day by mixing classic traditional pieces, like a sari, with a more modern silhouette like a skirted pair of cigarette pants.

Glitz and Glitter: Go big or go home as always been our motto at Kyra & Vir! Don’t sacrifice your style, especially on your wedding day, which is why we are here to let you know that the more your dress shines, the more you shine! Give your guests a sight they won’t forget by adding sparkle to your entire ensemble.

Neon Takeover: Be bright and shiny like your favorite new toy by wearing a wedding look that is brighter than the sun. We are talking about incorporating neon pinks, blues, greens and yellows, into your sari, lehenga, or ghagra for a traditional style that boasts your in-trend and fashion-forward knowledge.

Royal Remedy: Looking for something a little more regal? Try a floor length anarkali! These stunning gowns will make you look like the queen you are. Go for one made from a fabric like chiffon so that it has a sweeping-like movement to create an extra dramatic feel. These anarkalis are perfect for your reception—their smooth movements while you are twirling on the dance floor will make you look like you are gliding, leaving all your guests’ eyes on you.

Finding the right wedding dress is never easy, but that’s why we are here to help with customizing your look, all from the convenience of your own home!
