1. Allow The Vibe of Modernity to Blend in
Fashion is probably the most fickle of all the things that change with time.

New fashion ideas are continuously being incorporate to bridal wear, and the results are mesmerizing, to say the least.
We understand that weddings are about traditions and customs, especially in the case of Indian ceremonies. When we suggest you to include modern fashion into your dress, we’re not implying that you should forget all the traditional aspects of bridal wear. Modernity is just an added layer to ameliorate the overall look, while the base and foundation would still be the same traditional aura that makes Indian weddings truly special. Here are a few examples:
2. Don’t Forget to Consider the Fabric Type
Days before the special day when you’re out in the marketing selecting your bridal dress, you’re bound to come across a gigantic range such alluring collections that you would want to wear at least a few hundreds of them on your wedding day. Alas, you’d have to settle for one, that unique one that’s best from the rest.
While doing that, you must consider the fabric of the dress that you’re about to finalize. Make sure that it’s the ideal fabric for the season or it’s ultimately going to be a frustrating evening for you only. For instance, the thick fabric would go be ideal for winters, but it’s an absolute nightmare during the summers.
3. Choosing the Right Color
Before we begin, we just wanted to clarify that we don’t have the answer to the question, ‘Which shade is Ideal color for Indian bridal wear?’ In fact, there’s no right answer here, it’s completely a subjective choice to pick your favorite color tone. However, we do seem to have a few ideas to help you decide better.
Of course, we don’t have a single winner here. How could we?
4. The Right Time
So, what is the right time to buy your bridal dress? We did some analysis, and we think we have found an ideal range that is supposed to be the most optimum one. Before we reveal the range, it’s important that you understood a few things.
First, buying your wedding dress just a few days before the wedding is the worst idea ever. There are so many things happening together at the same time that it’s impossible to think clearly even a month before the wedding. On the other hand, you can’t just buy it way too early either. The reason, of course, is that your body is constantly changing, and what was a perfect fit a year ago may not be so today.
Based on these factors, we have set the ideal range from three to six months.
5. Your Choices First

After all, your wedding day is going to be all about you and your partner. The rules that we have mentioned above are just there to help, and not a compulsory set of parameters.
