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 of the most spectacular shades of summer. Word on the street is that pastels are ‘the new black’, and there is no doubt about it. Bollywood celebrities are spotted sporting the warm and pleasing colours in their Indian kurtis and lehengas. We took some inspiration and curated a list of the top four colours that are sure to keep you looking fresh and stunning.
The mellow yellow
Light on the eyes, yellow is a fitting colour that blends in the charm of all the wedding ceremonies. For people with light skin tones, yellow adds a pop of fun and brightness to the attire. Whether you like kurtis or sarees, the pastel hue is sure to flatter your skin tone.
The teal feel
For those with a medium skin tone, colours such as teal in the summers are an ideal fit. Picture yourself against the light blue backdrop of the sky, teal will amplify your tone and embody the festive mood of your outfit. The blue-green hue, reflecting the colours of a peacock’s feather, pairs well with the wedding atmosphere.
The coral affair
With Living Coral becoming the Pantone colour of the year, packing the pinkish-orange beauty is sure to get you many compliments. Coral is known to enhance the darker skin tones. It makes you appear lively and dazzling. Accompanied by a nice pair of white chappals and ivory jhumkas, the look will flawlessly match the occasion.
The evergreen neutrals
If you are not too sure about any of the colours, play it safe by choosing from shades of white, beige and an all-time favourite black. White never goes out of style be it in kurtis, sarees, or any Indian outfit. Though black does not particularly add to the colourful atmosphere of the ‘haldi’ or ‘sangeet’ ceremonies of a wedding, it can be a pleasing pick for the reception.
With your outfits in place, don’t forget to pack your sunscreen, your favourite pair of sunglasses and neutral all-day make-up to make sure you always look the part. Summer weddings are a time to shine, so make sure it is not sweat that is making your cheekbones glow. Choose your make-up carefully and take care of your tresses to prevent them from heat damage. Have an unforgettable wedding experience under the sun!
