Standing in front of the mirror, holding your dream cocktail gown, and wondering how you can refrain from rocking the same old, mundane look? It's simple-Add some 'Indian' touches to it! While fusion wear has been in trend for ages now, indianising modern outfits is the new concept our celebrities & brides are following. So why should you stay behind?
A bit of changes here and there, and you can come up with an altogether unique look. Say, instead of opting for swaroski encrusted danglers or those sparkling diamond rocks to pair with your wedding gown, try jhumkas & statement polki rings! They make for great alternatives.

Experiment with your hair. Maybe, pull them into a braid and indianise it with a parandi? You can also opt for other hair accessories & elements that can add a dash of desiness to your look.

Yet to finalise your gown? Even better! Pick silk fabrics or zari work instead of the ones with lacey & english details. They appear more Indian and can help you rock a neotraditional look.

One can also play around with veils & dupattas with stylish edges or long trains to infuse a distinct charm to their wedding gowns.
