5 Things we learnt from Band Baaja Bride !

BY The WMG Bride | 16 Apr, 2014 | 3095 views | 3 min read

I don't know about you, but watching Band Baaja Bride Season 4 on NDTV is pretty much part of the job requirement at Wed Me Good . Hey tough job, but someones got to do it  ;) ! This season at BBB - we learnt 5 important things from the brides (and grooms) to incorporate into your own wedding.

#1. That Peach & Mint is the most delicious combination ever

groom-colour peach=mint That mint sherwani is just stunning- specially next to the peach outfit of the bride . You know how we always fret and fume over color-coordinating with the groom. Well Sabya taught us you don't need to color-coordinate, just pick two contrasting colors that work well together. Pure love this one.  

#2. That the Borla (Rajasthani Maang Tikka) is the hottest thing since the jhoomar to hit Indian jewellery trends

#3. That One dupatta just doesn't cut it anymore.

Comment below and tell us if you would like an article on Dupatta draping styles.  

#4. That the messy bun is the new age hairstyle for the Indian bride

Severe top knots are passe,  its the messy, soft low buns that modern Indian brides are sporting ! I personally love this- have seen enough of those high top knots and buns that look like they will suck the life out of your head. It's also interesting to note the different kind of hairstyles given to different face shapes.

#5. That even if your outfit is all peach and gold, your jewellery could be a contrast

We would have never picked out a diamond and ruby set to go with this lovely peach and gold Sabya creation. But he did, and the rubies matched with the stole the guy is wearing and overall the entire look just came together. So all you brides who overthink the matchy-matchy jewellery trend- relax. Sometimes the most unusual combinations work together!
