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.

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
Indian English Fusion Wedding 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.

The followers of such rituals are found more in the southern part of the country in states of Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Karnataka. The Brahmins from Tamil Nadu and Kerala have several rites and rituals that are enjoyable that carry with them essence of the religion.

In some states, Brahmins plant banana trees in the morning where the final rituals shall be held for the wedding. These rituals are followed by various kinds of necessary pujas, which are exclusive among Indian Brahmins.

There are various sects of Brahmins spread throughout the region and they all have unique variations to their ceremonies, which are enriching in their own right. The sakharpuda or the typical Marathi wedding ceremony, indulges the girl to wear green bangles which are considered auspicious and the couple is blessed with sugar called sakharpuda, signifying the wishes for sweetening their married lives.The ceremony of kelvan is an essential part of the Marathi Brahmin wedding ceremony, when there is a grand feast in both families as well as a puja is performed for the kuldevta or lord of the family followed by another engagement ceremony and the ceremonial wang-nishchay meal.
