Weddings are hectic, we all know that. The one person who stresses as much as the bride or groom but is not pampered as much is 'The Mother'. Mothers work very hard behind the scenes. They attend to the guests, keep budgets together, and supervise everything all the while making sure that their children are looked after on the big day! They always keep an eye out for their kids, and that will never change! But it is time for the mothers to take some time out for themselves and plan out their outfits, jewellery and makeup appointments in advance. Below are our favourite style picks for all super Moms who want to make a statement this wedding season.
1. Experiment with form
Experimentation is the key to surprising people on a special day. If you are someone who has always stuck to the mould with a traditional saree or kurta and churidar, then it is time to break it. Wear a layered Anarkali or a skirt paired with a long kurta. Add some statement jewellery to complete the look.
2. Play with pastels
If it is a morning wedding that you are attending, we suggest opting for light pastels, with shimmering gold details. Ivory has been a celebrity favourite this festive season. An ivory and gold banarasi silk saree is a classic and makes an elegant statement on any occasion.
Take care of your feet and go for comfortable shoes, as weddings can mean long hours and lots of time spent standing. An embroidered jutti or mojari is a great option to wear with any Indian outfit.
3. Go for Jewel tones
Fall and winter weddings, with a little chill in the air, are our favourites. It means you can dress up in the most regal of fabrics and colours! Jewel-toned silks, rich velvets with long sleeves or embroidered jackets are your best options. Opt for chunky polki necklaces and feel like royalty.
A little makeup tip - Go for very deep plum or wine colour lip shades in a matte finish, to turn heads!
4. Say it with Temple Jewellery
Celebrities like Rekha and Kirron Kher have shown us time and again, the glory of an authentic silk saree styled with Temple Jewellery. This look works for all body types, and looks elegant on any occasion, be it an engagement party or a wedding. We say when in doubt, go for a zari woven silk saree paired with antique gold temple jewellery, a tidy updo for your hair and you will not go wrong!
