Traditional Red for your Wedding

Hi brides-to-be,

I hope you’re having a fab week! One of the most important things for a bride is what she’ll be wearing on her wedding day. Traditionally, a red lengha is the most commonly worn to the morning ceremony. However, more and more  brides are opting for different colours and different designs. Here are some pros and cons to help you decide what you feel is best for you!

Pros of wearing red

  • Colours hold an important position in Indian culture; each hue and shade signifies some aspect of your life. The colour red is often associated with love and passion
  • Red is often worn by Indian women, as the colour enhances beauty and skin complexion. The red is usually seen to look striking against brown skin tones
  • The colour red is deeply rooted into Indian culture, therefore wearing red on your wedding day sticks to tradition from many years ago

Pros of wearing different colours

  • Red might not be the colour for you and many designers now offer suits, saree’s and lengha’s in a variety of colours. This means you can play around with colours, choose what suits you best and search for an outfit in the perfect colour for you!
  • Wearing a bold colour will definitely set you apart from the crowd, so you’ll always be remembered for how you looked even after your big day
  • Even after your wedding day, you can wear your outfit many times over! Wedding dresses are often worn once and left in the cupboard, by wearing a different colour you can choose to wear your lengha/saree/suit to other functions without clashing with a bride who might wear red!

Cons of wearing red

  • More people now wear red to weddings as it is a colour that sometimes cannot be avoided! This can potentially take the attention away from the bright, bold red colour of just the bride
  • As red is often traditionally worn, outfits that are predominantly red are usually very expensive

Cons of wearing different colours 

  • Wearing a different colour strays from the heart of Indian culture and tradition that had been carried for a long period of time
  • Wearing a different colour might create conflict between you and your loved ones who wish for you to wear red on your wedding day, this might especially be the older generations in your family

Hope this helped brides, have fun choosing!

Destination Wedding Decisions

Everybody loves a good holiday, relaxing on the beach under the sun by the clear blue sea. For some brides and grooms, this in fact is the perfect setting for their big day, yes ladies and gentleman I’m talking about a destination wedding!! However, some couples prefer a traditional ceremony in their hometown, so to help you decide we’ve put together a list of the positives and negatives.

Pros- Destination Wedding

  • Resorts abroad help greatly to create a simpler and stress-free environment for your wedding, as a part of the package some even offer complimentary services.
  •  Destination weddings often include a smaller invitation list. This means you are able to spend your special day with the people you truly love at an intimate gathering.
  • Having less people, means you’ll spend less money on a grand hall for an extravagant reception.

Cons- Destination Wedding 

  • Having a destination wedding offers some risks, as there are often complications with trying to get a marriage license in order to marry abroad.
  • A location far and uneasy to get to means, some of the guests you really want on your big day may not be able to attend due to expenses or difficulty getting time off work.
  • Unfortunately, we do not have the power to control the weather! Therefore, a con with destination weddings is the risk of natural disasters.

Pros- Hometown Wedding 

  • Having lived and grown up in your hometown, it is likely that you’ve established connections and made friends. This means you’ll already have your choice of beauticians, rental companies and people that you can trust.
  • Wedding stress is something every bride or even groom cannot avoid! You may find that getting married in your hometown is the comfort and calm you need. You know the place like the back of your hand, take a stroll round the park or head to your local ice cream shop to calm those nerves, it’s  very nostalgic.
  • They say “never forget where you come from”, so what better way than to blend your past and future in the very place that is central to your life.

Cons- Hometown Wedding 

  • If you and your groom are not from the same town, this might cause some conflict if you both have strong ties to your hometowns.
  • It might just be that you do not like your hometown! Perhaps it’s the people or just the place itself and you want to hold this memorable day at a different location.
  • Extended family who live near you, may want to include loads of ideas for your wedding day if it’s taking place in your hometown,and this often creates stress and tension.

Hope this little list of pro’s and con’s helps you to make the decision that fits right with you and your spouse!
