Ombre color is white (or other) and another color that gradually blends creating a hypnotic fusion of shades. It is the hot color trend for 2018 and 2019 weddings. Only the daring bride will be brave enough to pull off this modern style which is a significant deviation from traditional white or full color theme wedding dresses.

Ombre is dramatic and we especially love the aqua ombre theme due to its versatility for Spring, Beach, Summer and even Winter Weddings. How you dress the rest of your wedding will dictate how fluid ombre fits into the season and the setting of your wedding.

Beach Themed Flower Arrangements Trending 2017 and 2018 Weddings

Flower Arrangements for a Beach Wedding

By Lora Davis

Beach weddings are romantic and the flowers you choose need to match your wedding venue. You will need flowers for the bridal bouquet, the boutonnieres, bridesmaid bouquets, wedding and reception decorations, etc. They play an important part of any wedding. For a beach wedding, you need flowers that reflect that theme. You should choose flowers that are resilient and can withstand the heat. Some of these flowers can include tropical flowers such as:

• Bird-of-paradise


Cymbidium orchids


Heliconias


Anthurium


These are all colorful flowers that will not wilt in the heat and will add color to the beach wedding.

Beach wedding bouquets

For the bride's bouquet, you should choose something sophisticated with a combination of three or four flowers. You will need for the bridesmaid a floral arrangement that is not as fancy. An eye catching wedding bouquet could consist of a cascading bouquet that is created out of chartreuse flowers, hosta leaves, cymbidium orchids, leucadendron, and gloriosia lilies. To give this cascading bouquet touches of softness add some satin ribbons. For the bridesmaid the ideal bouquet using one flower would look great. For example, the bouquet could be a solid bouquet made of tiny orchids or calla lilies. It should be in the bridal theme colors and tied with a coordinating ribbon. By keeping the bridesmaid bouquet's simply there is more focus on the bride's bouquet.

Beach wedding centerpieces

For these, mix flowers with traditional beach items like pebbles, seashell, starfish, or paper boats. You could use a rattan planter and fill it with long stemmed calla lilies and white orchids. You could also use small flowers in a small vase surrounded with pebbles and shells. You could also use candles with scents that remind people of the beach and surround them with shells and pebbles. If you use small centerpieces, you could use one or two small ones or one large one per table.


In conclusion

What many brides do not do is consider the climate where the wedding is being held. Yes, a beach wedding's weather is going to be hot but depending on the time of the wedding the temperature can vary. If you are having an early morning wedding make sure that the flowers you choose will stay fresh throughout the wedding ceremony and reception. Talk to the florist and ask if they have experience with choosing flowers for beach weddings. If they do not then you should find a florist that does.

Some brides choose a resort package to have the wedding, reception, and honeymoon and in many of the packages, floral arrangements are included. If you do not like the floral arrangement, ask if it can be changed to what you like.

A fusion of two cultures isn't about holding two different ceremonies with clearly defined differences between the cultural celebrations and ceremony. A true fusion is a single ceremony, celebration which ‘fuses' both cultures together. How to create this Indian English wedding fusion seamlessly is featured here with tips about bridal wear, music, food and more.

English To Indian Fusion Bridal Looks

The modern Indian Wedding embraces Western themes – making a fusion easier

Your Indian English wedding will dispense with the Kancheevaram saree, bare bejewelled feet and groom on a white steed. These will be replaced with designer bridal wear, strappy heeled shoes, limousines and stylish modern touches that have a more Western influence. The beauty of the Indian wedding though will be weaved throughout and will maintain a  dominant presence with careful styling.

Let's take a look at ideas for Indian English fusion wedding dresses

For a wedding dress to be fused with Indian and English bride influences, it needs to be mermaid shape or a simple drop line dress. The dress should have delicate details, lace, crystal embellishments and be everso slightly ‘bling'! Vintage wedding dresses featuring lots of lace and simple untailored shapes are great for creating fusion looks. Add a traditional wedding saree as a veil and the look is complete.


First up is a lacy mermaid style dress which features red floral lace design. I've featured this dress in the moodboard above to give you an idea as to how this dress can be fused with Indian bridal wear traditions. This is a great Indian English fusion wedding dress as it incorporates the English fashion shape (mermaid) with the traditional red color of Indian bridal wear.

To add more Indian influence a stunning wedding Saree veil can be added along with traditional Indian jewellery as worn on the hair and face and wrists. keeping the neckline clear will allow the attention to be drawn to the brides elaborate wedding makeup. Henna designs can also be worked into this look.

Accessories

Indian make-up fused with English will give a slightly lighter look than traditional Indian bride make-up. The exotic look however remains with smokey eyes and black eye liner.Indian English Fusion Wedding MakeUp

For brides on a tight budget the fact that costume jewellery is now popular and accepted as an alternative to heavy gold and diamonds is great news. Also English brides have been taking from Indian bridal culture by wearing the matha patti hair accessories previously only seen in indian culture. This too makes a fusion of Indian and English much easier to pull-off. As an Indian bride you can retain the headwear glamor that is traditional in your culture.


Food

Check out the moodboards for ideas of how to incorporate Indian food, design into Western culture food and design for weddings. The effect is quite stunning. I'd include food from both cultures, buffet style to ensure all the guests Indian and English are catered for. A sit down meal for an Indian English fusion wedding isn't as practical and will take a lot more planning! As long as your guests have allocated seating the meal will be just as stylish and classy as any other sit down meal.

For decorations, metallic gold and silver are very popular for 2017 and 2018 wedding and they perfectly add that touch of glamor required for an Indian fusion wedding.

Music

The good news here is that modern Indian weddings generally have moved on from the Nadaswaram or the Dholak and are instead using professional DJ's to host their event. This is great because the music aspect of the fusion takes little work as its common practice now for both cultures to enjoy a class DJ. Remixed Indian English music is a great balance, or just choose music selections you both enjoy from either culture.

Indian Bridal Trends 2016, 2017-2018

By Amy Anderson Lee

Red and Gold Indian Wedding Theme 2017

2016 was a year of innovation and experimentation for Indian brides. The new-age bride is breaking the typical stereotypes and going for new things. As the wedding season approaches, we scour the runways to give you the best of bridal couture. Get inspired!

Traditional designs, contemporary cuts

New-age brides look for creations that speak of the country's heritage and crafts and at the same time let their personalities shine through. While they choose traditional designs and fabrics like heavy borders of gota patti work or intricate embroidery and chanderi or Benarasi fabric, when it comes to silhouettes, they opt for classy cuts. Unlike in the past, new-age brides are not all covered up. They love to show-off their toned bodies. More and more brides are opting for tailored silhouettes that flatter their bodies and lend an air of sophistication.

The blouse gets a makeover

From sheer to ornate embroidered blouses, the runways saw a lot of experimentation this year. The off-shoulder trend, which was still now a popular street-style, has made its way to the bridal world. The runways also saw an unusual combination – sharp shirts and flowy lehengas. New brides are also sporting Grecian-inspired one-shoulder blouses, and bold and structured long and short jackets, which they team up with saris or lehengas.

Moving away from the OTT bling

Bridal wear has moved away from the bling and bauble of the past and seeing a return to elegance. The new bride wants to relax and have fun, and that is spilling into fashion. They want to be comfortable and prefer light outfits. And to appeal to the modern Indian bride some of the leading designers are bringing “lightness” to their bridal line using cuts, couching and fine threadwork.

Benarasi weave makes a comeback

While sheer saris with lace detailing, lehengas with textured metallic blouses, royalty inspired jackets, anarkalis and gowns are all big this season, we also see some of the leading designers like Sabyasachi and Ritu Kumar creating wonders in Benarasi weave. And the trend has trickled down to their bridal collection. You will see new generation brides opting for colourful Benarasi saris and vintage zardozi lehengas.

Moving beyond red

Peacock Blue Green Gold Indian Wedding Theme 2017

Brides are moving beyond red and opening up to non-traditional colours. Many designers showcased their wedding collection this year in creams, Iranian turquoise and deep burgundy. Black is also a popular choice for the sangeet. Pink and orange are also a favourite. Some of the leading designers like Gaurav Gupta are even making bridal wear in fresh, English colours like powder blue and mint green. And Tarun Tahilaini showcased his bridal collection in beige, pink, salmon and ivory. The new generation of brides are lapping them up as they are quite progressive in their outlook and never shy away from experimenting.

It's all about the classics when it comes to jewellery

When it comes to jewellery bling is out and subtlety is in. It's all about timeless classic pieces. Brides are gravitating towards a fuss-free style. Traditional uncut sets, solitaire studs and emerald necklaces are the flavour of the season. The layering and stacking trend is still strong. Brides are opting for a choker, followed by a mid-length diamond necklace, and finally a waist length piece. To cater to the modern bride, some of the leading jewellers are making jewellery in unusual shapes like squares, triangles, and hexagons, too. Polki or a fusion of polki and diamonds is still a big trend, especially for cocktails. For the wedding an emerald ring, a pair of chandelier earrings and titanium bangles are must-haves.

Experimenting with hair accessories

Brides are moving beyond the usual and experimenting with hair accessories like paasas, matha pathis and tikkas.

Check out the biggest bridal trends for the year 2017, that helps you to start thinking of good ideas on your big day. Also find the stunning looks from latest bridal fashion week

Indian Bridal Jewellery Is The Choice Of Style And Statement

By Julia Mark

Rose and Gold Indian Wedding Ideas 2017 2018

The wedding times are the time when splurging is the least factor to look upon. It is for a lifetime and thus every bride dreams to have it in her own dream way. From tying wedding knot to cutesy decorations, everything really matters in every type of Indian marriage. A line of trend comes and goes and not sure about the period, but when they come back, they come with some or many evolutions. Same factor works on women jewellery. In 60's, Indian women preferred to wear natural designs on necklaces such as leaves, floral, twirls and etc. but modern bride love to experiment with abstract designs. What was the reason behind this and ever changing taste of women in fashion? Fashion is a subjective matter which keeps on changing every season and with every season comes a demand of new style and pattern. In each and every state or region in India, one can explore variety of traditional work patterns, designs and techniques in jewellery crafting. For example, a bride in South India loves to wear heavy necklaces and other jewels, whereas in eastern side, one can find lightweight jewellery formations in the collection.

A bride's love for her traditional jewellery is eternal and you ought to have ample time in your pocket to know the reason, yet to discover. Let's look for some really demanding Indian traditional jewels and types that are brought as essentials of brides'.

Choker Necklace – When comes to her wedding trousseau, she wants everything to be perfect and apt. And how can her shopping said to be complete without a choker necklace? As its name suggests, they are close fitting necklaces and sometimes available with an extension of a chain or locket. Bridal necklaces are heavily worked and befitted with beautiful stones and beads.

Sita Haar – These necklaces are profoundly adorned by South and East Indian brides. Sita haar is the longest necklace kind in the category and reaches upto the pelvic region of the wearer. Modern bride also customise their orders to make them more long and lavish. Emerald, ruby and sapphire are some of the common stones used here in the making.

Maang Tikka – A traditional jewel which is adorned and worn by every Indian bride on her big day. Borli maang tikka is quite in-trend these days and is basically originated in Rajasthan, India. They are quite bold and have bell kind shape. These hair accessories look great when complemented with designer lehengas, wedding sarees or bridal suits.

Traditional Anklet – This type of jewellery is generally made in antique gold or silver. Simple booti work and kundan work make them extra precious.

Especially during wedding occasions, people mostly prefer 22k gold jewellery due to their intense lustre and royal look. Gold jewellery has always been an integral part of Indian bride's jewel couture and serves her beauty to the best. They are delicately handcrafted to give the most trending patterns by using only the finest materials such as Swarovski crystals, luminous pearls, stunning diamonds and other various types of precious and semi-precious stones. Apart from gold pieces, one can also explore and try diamond, kundan, platinum and white gold jewellery. They are quite gorgeous and made for more sophisticated weddings. These mentioned base materials are quite expensive and thus people are seen to go for gold numbers more. If you are visiting any wedding then jewellery set can be a handsome pick for the couple or the bride. Buy artificial women jewellery for the days when the bells are ringing for someone else's. For the busiest brides out there, there are various kinds of web portals which offer quality and trusted online jewellery shopping services with aim to provide the need of every woman at the ease and comfort of their couch.

With hefty discounts and large array of jewellery, you can buy precious and artificial jewellery online for women or for yourself. So, pamper your beauty with these magical pieces and flaunt your level best among the peers.

Transform your shape into a sexy hourglass with these easy to apply style tips

How to transform an apple into an hourglass

how to dress an apple bodyshape

What is an apple body-shape?

Apple body shapes may also be thought of being ‘boxey'. That is they have a short torso and as a result a less defined waist. They may have long slim legs and this is the feature we wish to highlight and capitalize on with the ‘apple' body shape.

Tops and dresses with a ‘raised' waist – usually just below the breast line that then drape stright down past the hips are great for emphasising the length of legs and minimising attention to the boxey middle.

Shorter dresses and baby doll tops with shorter skirts are perfect for also drawing attention to the legs while creating a classy top half.

Wedding Dresses for the apple shaped bride

These wedding dresses (all available in plus sizes) have waist lines that sit high which for an apple body shape help create an illusion of a waist and emhasize the slimmest part of the torso. The dress then flows downwards and outwards creating wonderful curves.

Stunning Tulle & Satin V-neck Natural Waistline A-line Plus Size Wedding Dress

Let's look at some reception, cocktail dresses suitable for the apple body shape.

You will note these dresses have a waist line starting below the bust and the eye line is drawn via design details to the legs, whether it be a split in the dress, shorter length, fabric folds etc. The upper half is also accentuating the bust line while again creating an illusion of a waist – by raising it!

How to turn a pear into an hourglassget an hourglass figure whatever your body shape

First things first it doesn't matter what weight or dress size you are, the body shape decides what the fashion rules are and these apply equally to a size 4 as they do a size 40 and so on. As such larger ladies can take fashion ideas from their smaller but similarly ‘shaped' counterparts and look just as fabulous.

What is a Pear body shape?

A ‘pear' body shape is one where the hips are wider than the shoulder and the waist is defined. Some may call this body shape ‘bottom heavy'. It may also mean being longer in the torso and having shorter legs. As such to achieve the illusion of an hourglass figure for a pear body shape the aim is to balance the shoulders with the hips and emphasize the waist. At the same time we need to work on giving the appearance of a shorter torso and longer legs.

Our objectives for creating the hourglass body shape are:

Create a broader shoulder line – you can achieve this with fuller shoulder tops such as puff sleeves and a rounded, square neckline. Avoid polo and halter necks and these will emphasize the narrower upper half of the body in relation to the hips. Patterns, detail and jewelry also create more definition to the bust and shoulder area. Off the shoulder tops are also great for creating the illusion of width in this area as well as being very sexy!

Reduce the width of the hips – A line skirts or full (retro fifties style) skirts and low waisted trousers, jeans  draw attention away from the widest part of the hips and put it on the narrower waist.

Highlight and bring in the waist – Belts, corsets, fitted tops.

Lengthen the legs – straight legged trousers, jeans are preferable to tapered, skinny ones which emphasize the width of the hips and shorten the appearance of legs. Darker colors are preferrable to light. Heeled shoes always lengthen the legs, but aren't always a comfortable choice. I find wedges and platforms the more comfortable option. Avoid ankle strap shoes as these ‘cut off' the ankles and feet making legs look shorter.

Brides

A pear-shaped bride can achieve a wonderful hourglass figure with full off the shoulder straps, corset waist and full skirt, A-line dress.
