There’s noth­ing more ex­cit­ing about wed­ding sea­son than brides who love to ex­per­i­ment. So, bridesto-be, it’s time to re­fresh your wed­ding colour pal­ette. Ex­perts list down some trends that one should book­mark for the bridal sea­son, this year.

■ Sage green: This un­ex­pected shade has found im­mense love in the In­dian bridal lehenga space. You can opt for a toned-down ver­sion with a mix of em­broi­dery or can go for gota work. Ei­ther way, this colour is a breath of fresh air among all the reds and will in­stantly help you stand out. ■ Rose gold: There are rose

gold phones watches and gold lehen­gas are both glam­orous and el­e­gant, which means you have one out­fit that works for your bridal du­ties, your pheras, and then your fun re­cep­tion party, too.

■ Ivory: The colour is re­garded as a rich, royal hue due to the sub­tle so­phis­ti­ca­tion it por­trays. It is also an apt colour for the brides who would like to ex­per­i­ment more with their makeup and jew­ellery. An ivory lehenga with golden thread work can look al­lur­ing with a ruby or an emer­ald jadau polki set. The du­patta can be ma­roon for a more tra­di­tional func­tion. Even a translu­cent or­ganza can look ex­tremely chic for a sangeet/mehendi func­tion.

■ Sil­ver grey: A sil­ver grey lehenga with badla em­broi­dery or mir­ror work is for the more ex­per­i­men­tal brides who be­lieve in break­ing ar­chaic norms. Use beau­ti­ful and in­tri­cate grey be­narasi bro­cades with sil­ver thread work for bridal lehen­gas. A peach bro­cade du­patta with sil­ver grey lehenga with pearl-and-gold tra­di­tional jew­ellery can be the right mix of nov­elty and tra­di­tion. The sil­ver grey trend has been seen burn­ing the ramp in­ter­na­tion­ally as well.
