27. This sheer back blouse is the hot new trend to try out right now. It feels like you’ve not worn anything when you actually have. This fabric looks great when there’s some shimmer or sequins on it.
28. A great V-neck blouse is hard to find and harder to pull off. Let this one be your stencil to getting that V-neck blouse you’ve always wanted to flaunt. Add some tassels around the waist - that’s going to make it look even better and oh-so-stylish!
29. We bet you would have never thought of getting something like this designed for you wedding day. If you’re a bold bride-to-be who likes to experiment and isn’t afraid of trying a naughty neckline, just get this one tailormade already.
30. Because you can never go wrong with a tube blouse! Opt for a heavy brocade fabric or one that matches your lehenga and get a tube blouse made. It works well for summer or day functions and would be ideal for your Mehndi. If you’re conscious of showing too much skin, just wear a cape over it!
Your wedding lehenga or saree is the most important outfit, and it can be nothing short of PERFECT. You plan your look for months, and go from store to store searching for ‘The One’! And, girls, what you must remember is that the awesome lehenga is incomplete if your blouse is not on point. Having the perfect lehenga with a not-so-great blouse can be quite a buzzkill. So, we give you a list of mistakes you must avoid making when getting your blouse stitched.
The length of your sleeves can make all the difference to your look for the wedding. While 3/4th length or elbow-length sleeves look formal, wearing that sort of a blouse with lots of bangles is a no-no. The blouse, bangles, plus the mehendi is just going to make your arms look very cluttered.
This is a very common mistake made by most of us! When you’re getting your lehenga blouse stitched, brief the tailor that there should be no embroidery under your arms. It’s going to get really messy once your start to sweat. Trust us, you don’t want that itch when you’re walking down the aisle.
If you’re wearing a heavy duty necklace that has tassels and you also have a dori at the back of your blouse, just snip the extra tassel hanging from your blouse. Imagine three-four doris hanging at the back, all in different shapes and sizes. Umm, not a pretty sight, we say!
If you’re wearing a chiffon or a crepe saree or dupatta, make sure you’re not wearing a blouse filled with sequins or embroidery. The heavy work on the blouse will pull the threads from your saree and spoil it. Opt for a chanderi, brocade or even a kanjeevaram blouse instead. It’ll give you that glamour, without being poky or causing any damage.
A front-open blouse is a bad decision, ladies. No matter what you wear, a lehenga or a saree, the fastenings in front are bound to show. And you don’t want that, do you? Go for the front-open option only if you’re wearing a jacket style/ blazer style blouse.
Opt for a zipper instead of buttons on your blouse, and have it stitched on one the side. It looks neat, doesn’t pop open even if you’ve eaten too much, and doesn’t get stuck anywhere. Easy, peasy, isn’t it?
While you may want to match your blouse with one element from your ensemble, matching it with everything isn’t a good idea. Have an element of contrast in your blouse. It could be in the form of embroidery, just the border of your blouse or even the tassels. Make the blouse break the colour and look of the outfit, girls.
We loved this contrasting lehenga we saw on Jabong! It's just perfect for a daytime mehendi ceremony and is available for JUST Rs 6,835!
If you want to be the edgy bride and wear a high-neck/ high-collar blouse on your wedding day, please give the necklace a miss. Too much of anything looks bad, and if you’re going to wear jewellery on an embroidered high-neck blouse, it’s not going to work. Let some skin show, it gives a break from the bling!
A padded blouse mostly gives great shape to your breasts, but only when the pads are well placed. Make sure the positioning of the pads is right, and they are the right thickness. It shouldn’t be too thick or too thin. Ensure this before you get it stitched!
And for when you were just being lazy and couldn't get your blouse stitched in time OR it came out wrong for some reason (God forbid!), then you can just get this pre-stitched blouse in your size from Amazon for Rs 1,299!
Now that you know EVERYTHING you should know about your bridal blouse, make sure you get the design on point. Okay?
