Indian weddings may have modernized over all these years but the roots remain intact. All the rituals and pre-wedding ceremonies are still carried out with great joy. The haldi ceremony is one such ritual that is a part of an Indian wedding. It is said that haldi or turmeric that plays a vital role in this ceremony has the power of warding off the evil powers so that the would-be couple can step into the new phase of their life with the most pious kind of vibes around them. Since it is a part of the wedding ceremony, it is going to be captured in photographs, so you, being the bride, need to look picture perfect for the occasion. Here’s a list of all that you need to look picture ready:
Lightweight fashion is in vogue. So, you can actually go for plain sarees with intricate borders and printed, embroidered or embellished blouses. If you are not comfortable with sarees, you can opt for bright colored Anarkali suits with uneven hemlines and delicate embroidery. You can also go for embroidered jacket with leggings for that royal Indo-western look. When you want a traditional and royal look, you can try a lightly embroidered lehenga.
Flowers are an important element in all the rituals carried out during a wedding. Also, they are a timeless personification of beauty. That is the reason why brides today opt for real flower jewelry rather than the traditional gold and silver sets, especially for ceremonies like haldi and mehendi. the most popular choices include roses, jasmine, and orchids.
Fresh flower jewelry is the best choice to go for when it comes to these occasions as it would not be an issue if it gets stained with the turmeric paste. Also, you’ll be able to enjoy the entire ceremony without any stress. Necklaces, bracelets, jhhumars, maang tikas and rings made up of roses, lily, orchids etc save you efforts of carrying heavy jewelry and make you look drop dead gorgeous on this special occasion.
In order to avoid all the hassle, you can either braid your hair or tie them up into a stylish bun. You can further decorate your hair with hair accessories made out of flowers.
It is advisable to go for waterproof, long-lasting makeup on this special occasion. Just make sure that you apply just a little bit of it and that your makeup colors are in sync with your outfit.
