Bridesmaids are in! And when they’re dressed to match the bride, they look oh-so-amazing! The trend’s caught on big time and now everyone’s doing it. The Ambanis, the Piramals, the Bhavnanis, the Padukones, the Jonases, the Chopras, you name it. So what’s the inside story? Why are so many celebrities following this trend so devotedly?
The reasons are many, and all of them are fun ones.
When you put in so much effort into planning a wedding and creating a theme around which the decor revolves, it only makes sense to put in some thought into how the main characters are going to look, together. Remember, your bridesmaids and mother and siblings are the main players for that day. These are the people who have your back, from carrying your SOS arsenal of makeup to sneaking you that drink when you need it most! Isn’t it wonderful if you all look good together! Your bridesmaids are going to be in many of the photographs and if they look good, your wedding album is going to be a thing of envy!
Ultimately, it’s all in the photographs! For all those who weren’t invited or those who couldn’t make it, there’s only one answer — clicks and pix! Each ceremony and occasion has favourite spots created especially for the trigger-happy and don’t forget everyone nowadays, is an ace photographer! From flashing the latest iPhones to Pixels and the latest androids, everyone, today, is an official memory-keeper. So, coordinated bridesmaid outfits fetch you great looking pictures, for posterity!
If it wasn’t on social media, did it even happen? That’s the power of Instagram and Facebook for you. The real thing is passé, it’s the images that count. Especially the images that are shared over and over and which garner the most likes! After all, they are what last forever, right? Memories are bound to fade but the glossies will be there for all time to come!
Libas presents some vibrant outfits meant for flaunting at weddings. Great for creating a counterpoint for the bride and her outfit, and forming a wonderful block of celebratory colour that will be the highlight of the wedding look!
Choose from a selection of styles and colours that spell glamour and panache. From the subtle to the bold and bright, there’s a wide range of ensembles that have the look and are sure to send the glamour quotient of your wedding soaring
Either go in for a colour that contrasts with what the bride is wearing…. you can even pick one of the minor colours from her outfit and match the ensembles to that.
Or you can echo the main colour in a darker hue. (Like the Ambani clan did for Akash Ambani’s wedding.) It all depends on the overall colour scheme as well; the colours you are using for the wedding venue, the table settings, the flowers and of course, the selfie spots.
Once you’ve dressed your bridesmaid squad, you can relax. Now all you need to do is put on your best smile. You’ll have a wonderful set of photographs where every frame is a delightful melange of colour and beauty. Many happies to you and your intended!
