Building a wedding trousseau is one exciting errand for the brides! You get to add new stuff to your wardrobe and experiment with vivid colors, silhouettes, and styles. However, brides-to-be today are planning on having a post-wedding wardrobe that goes well with their work life instead of investing in heavier pieces that'll serve no purpose, other than gathering dust.
So, if you're also a bride-to-be, who is practical & likes to shop within a set budget, here's how you can build the perfect modern wedding trousseau under 50K.

Family functions after your wedding require you to dress up like a newly married woman (read: extraaa), however, that can be achieved without donning OTT outfits.

Not so desi

Modern brides want modern outfits in their trousseau and that's where the role of indo-western attire comes into existence! Not up for a regular saree?

Layered in style

On the days when you don't feel like sporting ethnic wear, you can easily create fusion looks by layering this Benarsi Silk Brocade jacket! It'll add the required traditional vibe to your attire while being uber-chic.
A fresh addition
Available at Kalki Fashion | Priced at Rs 8,940
A chirpy yellow dhoti pant set with a floral mint jacket would look great at an acquaintance's pre-wedding function or any small occasion at home! The motif on the blouse adds the right amount of bling to the attire.
Dash of gold
Available at Fab India | Priced at Rs 6,990
Remember how Deepika Padukone made her first public appearance, after her wedding, in a stunning dull gold suit paired with red Banarsi dupatta? You, too, can create a similar look with this suit! All you need to do is add a vibrant dupatta and voila - ready to slay!!
Not without an Anarkali
Anarkali silhouette is loved by one and all! No matter what your personal style is, you'd definitely add an Anarkali to your trousseau. This piece is light yet elegant and can be amped up with a chunky choker if required.
Phew.. budget shopping can be challenging but it is fun too! So get ready with your checklist and don your shopper's hat on.
