Plan to ensure you are ready for everything that winter 2021 brings to your wedding.

Trending Winter Accessories For Brides-To-Be

Classic Accessories That Winter Brides Must-Have

1. A Velvet Double Dupatta Drape

While the double dupatta look is a big fad amongst millennial brides, it can also be a great saviour during winters and keep you warm. 

2. A Warm Colour Coordinated Shawl 

If you think a shawl will kill your look, we'd disagree. In fact, if you plan and find the prettiest colours to match your outfit, a shawl can not just save you from the cold but also enhance your wedding look. Meha Bhargava, Founder & CEO Styl.Inc says, "Brides, don't forget to keep an embroidered shawl handy for the winter weddings."

4. Customised Socks For The Bride

Whatever your outfit might be, look for a pair of socks that can cover your feet and not let the cold settle in. From sheer to woollen, your options are unlimited.

13. Bridal Jewellery That Goes Well Your Bridal Lehenga 

Meha Bhargava, Founder & CEO Styl.Inc suggests a few ways of how you can pair dazzling jewellery with your lehenga. "If you already possess a vintage, ancestral or heirloom jewellery piece then you can decide your wedding lehenga accordingly. But if you are yet to buy your wedding jewellery, we would suggest the other way round. So that you do not restrict your dream lehenga to your jewellery." Also, she recommended the following pointers that a bride-to-be needs to follow for her upcoming winter wedding.

The type of jewellery depends completely on the style of your outfit and colour, which are as follows: 

  • If it’s the typical traditional red with gold embroidery, polka, as well as Kundan, would do justice to the royal look. Satladas or rani haars are also majestic and classy.
  • If you’re experimenting with lehenga colours say blues, greens, purples etc. then you may match the colour of the stones in your polka/Kundan set to the colour of your attire.
  • If you’re going for those unique contemporary lehengas i.e florals, boho patterns, blocks or prints- then you can go for diamond jewellery as well to give it an entire modern new-age bride look.
  • If you’re going for a traditional Banarasi saree/lehenga or kanjeevaram saree look, then gold or temple jewellery would be perfect. A Jadau set looks ethereal with Banarasi outfits.
