The rules, they are a-changing! With a plethora of trends making massive comebacks, today’s bride prefers blending family traditions with edgy, contemporary elements that bring out the best in her. We’re oh-so-thrilled to see how the bride’s wish list has transformed over the years – not only is she now, an active participant of the varied activities that make a wedding successful, but she’s clear about what she wants for the most important day in her life. In the last few years alone, we’ve witnessed a surge of traditions artistically fused with modern ideas, which has completely altered our perception of “what brides want”. Let's take a look: Her undying love for minimalistic jewellery Hey, remember those times when heavy, layered jewellery was tucked safe in lockers, to be taken out only for special occasions? Well, today’s bride looks for nothing but jewellery she can wear daily without having to worry about going OTT. Minimalistic platinum pendants and rings have trendily replaced heavy gold jewellery pieces, with subtle but artistic nuances that work their charm over both traditional as well as Western outfits. So, does that mean, less really is more? We nod. Beauty blended with technology If you’re a skin care freak like us, you, are going to be amazed at finding out what the beauty fraternity has in store for you. From machines that use sonic radiations to cleanse your face to facials that bring into use the wickedest ingredients (fire facials, anyone?), the artistic fusion of beauty with technology is simply awe-inspiring. Brides no longer rely on tedious home remedies, for there’s a slew of gadgets that require minimum effort from their side. Let’s just say, today’s gutsy bride is game for anything in the name of beauty! The return of Benarasi Sick of cheap net fabrics and gaudy stone embroidery? That makes the two of us! Honestly, we couldn’t be happier seeing how brides today are digging back into their mothers’ closets for elegant, timeless fabrics that, even today, exude unparalleled class and richness. Why else would designers like Sabyasachi, Ekaya, or Raw Mango bring back classic fabrics such as Benarasi over modern silhouettes? It’s the adaptation of traditional styles in accordance with state-of-the-art trends that floats the modern bride’s boat. Royal influences in contemporary décor

Century-old palaces, when adorned with modern-day décor elements, emanate an unmatched charm that you wouldn’t see anywhere else. Brides today long for this setup, which, when matched with their royal outfits transform the entire vibe of the wedding. Modern ceremonial twists

Who would’ve thought we’d see couples paying ode to family traditions in a spectacularly au currant manner? ****Sponsored Post: EVARA Platinum Blessings, as the collection is called, is a new range of bridal jewellery for the bride and groom who seek exclusivity and cherish the blessings from their families closer to them on their big day.
