This is why Koskii has rolled out 5 wedding trends that are going to make the job of planning your ‘Big Fat Indian Wedding’ easier! What's new, you ask? Everything! Scroll down to catch up with trends that are making a lot of buzz in 2019.
We know how important the colour red is in the selection process of your bridal lehengas. However, if you have been feeling bored of conventionalism, we understand! Why not add other colours to your lehenga when there are so many colours to choose from? 2018 has been majorly influenced by celebrity weddings from Bollywood, and it has left so many new age brides encouraged to go ahead and experiment with colours. For 2019 the pastels hues and soft tones have changed the bridal game and we say it’s here to stay! Pastel green, yellow, ivory, fuschia pink, merlot red, teal blue, and teal green are certainly serving an inspiration to countless to-be-brides. Floral Stonework and Zardozi work remains the most loved embroidery work on bridal lehengas and this trend is not going to change anytime soon.
Trends in wedding decor are similarly following floral trends. Bright colors are making a big return in 2019. Colors like burgundy, turquoise, and emerald will be seen in all elements of the ceremony and reception, including guests’ dresses, invitation suites and other paper elements, florals, linens, and other accents. Pastel and more muted decor will always be a beautiful, classic choice, but we expect to see more weddings create an elegant affair with moodier and more intense colors than we’re used to.
The Save-The-Date concept which has taken over the wedding scene by storm is a concept which is quite new to India. It is a great option for couples planning a destination wedding that requires RSVP’s from guests, and also for those couples who are environmentally conscious! This cost-saving and innovative concept is here to stay and millennial couples of today are more than happy with it. SAVE MONEY! USE IT FOR YOUR HONEYMOON certainly should be the tagline for Save-The-Date invitations.
