The top 4 colours for a summer wedding
On your way to a summer wedding? Make sure to pack light—not just clothes, but colours as well!
Attending a summer wedding and don’t know what to pack? Beat the heat with four spectacular shades of summer. Word on the street is that pastels are ‘the new black’, and there is no doubt about it, as Bollywood celebrities are seen sporting the soothing colours in traditional kurtis and lehengas. Inspired by summer, we’ve curated a list of the top four colours that will keep you looking fresh and stunning.
Evocative of the seasonal warmth, yellow is a colour that promises to portray irresistible charm at all the functions. There’s no denying that yellow adds a dash of fun and brightness to one’s attire. Whether you like kurtis or saris, the pastel hue is sure to grab the spotlight.
If yellow is reminiscent of the sun, teal calls to mind a day at the beach. Traditional garments in teal tones will instantly elevate your celebratory mood. The blue-green hue, reflecting the colours of a peacock’s feather, pairs well with the festive ambience.
With Living Coral declared the Pantone Colour of the Year, wearing the pinkish-orange shade is sure to get you many compliments. Coral exudes a sense of liveliness, so pair it with subtly-toned accessories such as a pair of white juttis and ivory jhumkas.
If you are undecided about the colours, choose classic tones, which include shades of white, beige and an all-time favourite, black. A dependable palette for summer, white never goes out of style—be it in kurtis, saris or lehengas. Though black isn’t viewed as an auspicious colour per se, it can be a pleasing pick for the evening reception.
With your outfits in place, don’t forget to pack your sunscreen, your favourite pair of sunglasses and comfortable shoes. Summer weddings are a time to shine, so make sure it is not sweat that is making your face glow. Choose your make-up carefully and take care of your tresses to protect them from exposure to excessive heat. And finally, have an unforgettable wedding experience under the sun!
