The blouse is the most crucial piece of a bride’s final look. The bride might have the most gorgeous Saree in the world, but it’s the blouse which can totally make up for the most stunning bride. It can make or break the whole look. It’s the blouse which accentuates the Saree and elevates its beauty to make it an admirable masterpiece.
Selecting the right color
The right color for the bridal blouse might always not be the blouse fabric which comes with the Saree. Contrasting colors for the Saree and blouse enhances the beauty of the Saree. For example, a traditional red silk Saree would pair up wonderfully with a green, golden or a dark purple colored blouse. A pink or orange Saree would be exemplary with a blue, purple or green shades of blouses.
Choosing the blouse material
The wedding venue and the weddings traditions are the most influential factors while choosing a wedding blouse material. In the case of Hindu weddings, the bride should be able to tolerate the high temperatures of the sacred fire where she is going to be spending hours before tying the knot. There might also be some fun wedding games which the relatives might have planned for. The blouse material should be good enough for the bride to breathe in and feel comfortable. Banarasi brocade, chiffon and crepe are some popular choices for bridal blouses.
Deciding the right trends for your body type
For a plus-size bride, covering up the flabby arms and broad shoulders would look good. A high-collared blouse with full length sleeves would make the bride’s look regal. A slim-fit bride would look stunning in a backless/off-shoulder or deep V-cut blouses with a knot. Aari and zardosi work on blouses can take them to the next level. Cold shoulder blouses are all the rage currently and is perfect if you’re conscious about your arms but not wanting to show just too much skin. Here’s a slide-show of some swoon-worthy blouses.
