Monsoon Wedding Trends Tips For Women:

1. Wedding Dress - A wedding cannot be called a perfect wedding without a proper bridal dress. Donning a white colored dress is now an old fashion, and also, not a very apt choice for the monsoon season. The traditional color White symbolised purity and innocence in the bride and wearing lengthy lehengas and gowns was common during olden days. But now, it is time to get practical with colors and styles as these kind of colors are extremely difficult to handle in the damp season. It is best to go for the maroons, dark blues amd greens with fabrics like satin as even a rain droplet or dirt can be easily wiped off. It also a better idea to choose the nature colors (monsoon season colors) like the blues, greys and marves.

The looks are simple but always ranks as number one in the list of monsoon wedding trends. Soft curls will add to the look. Fresh orchids or lilies can also accessorise your hair naturally.

3. Make Up - Always go for waterproof cosmetics, specially the eye make up. Never overdo when it comes to make up, keep it simple. Avoid foundation, instead try calamine creams. A matte compact and light gloss should complete the look. Instead of frequent facials, one can even go for chemical peels as there is no sun (months before the wedding).

4. Jewellery - Nothing like diamonds that look more dazzling than the rain drops in the season. It best to select the monsoon collections of shiny diamonds or platinum jewellery. Sparkling pearls and kundan jewellery are also in trend this season.

5. Footwear - Going for bare foot sandals isn't a bad idea. One can even show-off platforms or heels like vintage, strappy, floral embellished etc.
