Sabyasachi Mukherjee’s Bridal Dos and Donts

“I always have stuck to one theory that different kinds of silhouettes and trends might come and go, but what women really want is to look feminine, beautiful and glamorous.” – Sabyasachi Mukherjee

1. Decoding Looks

If you aspire to look like a Mughal Princess, get inspired by ancient Muslim dresses, colors like Iranian turquoise with gold and perfectly cut silhouettes.

For jewelry, it’s all about layering! Don an emerald necklace along with a nice choker that sits well around the neck, a big maang teeka, earrings and a statement nath. But it’s the elegant and traditional passathat takes your straight into that era so don’t forget to wear that!

The heartland of India wears red bridal sarees. They are either Benarasis or the distinct aari-taari sarees with gota or zardosi borders. For me, these sarees are “chicken soup for the soul.” Every time I see one of them, they represent a certain timelessness and a sense of assurance that is all is well. Perhaps, these are old familiar tales that we need to cling to in desperation in an ever-changing world to find our way back home. At Sabyasachi, these are the textile and design stories that we love to celebrate. Not as designers or revivalists, but as restoration artists. Because in our confused modern world, a lot of us need a little bit of hand-holding, a little sign from popular culture that restores our faith in our own identities.

As far as makeup is concerned, dark smoky eyes with lots of kajal, lots of blush, glossy lips and pulled back hair should do the trick.

If you want to opt for a typical Hindustani look, then that has to include some fresh mogra flowers in your hair, a striking maathapatti and a bindi. To add a modern nuance with that, you can keep your hair textured, skin dewy with dark and smoky eyes.

If you are a boho bride, go in for an unconventional color with an even more unique pattern on it. Let your hair be messy and don’t forget to add a ‘me’ touch in anything you do!

2. Red Or No Red

Red is back in trend but so are unconventional colors! So if you pick a red ensemble for your wedding, then break the monotony with unconventional colors for your reception. Hues of emerald green, pinks – whether its baby pink or rani pink, metallic or even different shades of rose are all in this season and work well on the Indian skin.

3. Want White But Not Right

Come winter, we always present another house classic- our velvet sarees. This year we present it in Burma Ivory with a painstakingly embroidered ‘tilla’ work pallu inspired from a rare Kashmiri shawl. The pleats are embroidered on tulle with marori and gota. The look is accessorized with 22k gold, uncut diamonds, emerald and pearl jewellery from the Sabyasachi Heritage Jewelry Collection. The gentleman wears a quilted silk sherwani in hand-dyed Murshidabad silk and accessorized with hand-crafted Bengal tiger buttons.

A great option for brides this season is ivory and old rose pink. Both of these exude the right amount of elegance and charm. Even men with good physique and long stature should opt for Ivory for their wedding sherwani.

White is never a preferred color for a wedding but no color quite matches the elegant tone that is set by white.

4. Jewellery Tips

It is all about modular jewellery now, which means that you can wear a heavy necklace followed by a choker that sits on the nape of your neck. This gives you the choice of wearing multiple pieces or a single piece. Allow the jewellery to be in emeralds, rubies, polkis or rough cut diamonds.

Here’s are some important tips about jewellery – If your lehenga is very busy which means one with a lot of work on it, then wear a necklace that is geometrical in shape so that the necklace doesn’t camouflage with the outfit. Let the geometry be of diamonds or emeralds and balance the necklace with colorful chand baalis.

Girls with a narrow face should ideally go for jhumkas. They add the right amount of volume to the face and suit them the best.

To get a slightly bohemian look, multi colored jewelry preferably pukhraj, ruby or emerald works the best.
