Okay, so all the Bollywood lovers in the house must know about the fact that Anushka Sharma’s wedding lehenga in Ae Dil hai mushkil weighed 17 kgs. No joking, it did! And we also agree that she made a stunning bride in that Manish Malhotra attire. But did you notice the colour-contrasting jewellery she had on?
Pretty. Right? Well, u must have seen her jewellery and her lehenga. Don’t miss her heavy Kundan neckpiece and earrings worn with emeralds beautifully contrast with her shiny golden and red outfit. This took place because the wedding set jewellery choice was smartly contrasted with her bridal outfit, making it pop. It is easy and there are innumerable ways of going about it.
Here we present to you some of the best contrasts on real brides.
1. JEWELLERY SAME AS WORK ON YOUR LEHENGA
If your lehenga is in red and has green beads all over, don’t be afraid to pick heavily layered Kundan necklace, matching your Maang tika and earrings with green beads of the same shade. Stunning, if you ask us!
2. ADORN SPARKLING WHITE JEWELLERY AND BREAK THE COLOUR CODE
A monotone style does not always need to be boring. Why not shift from the colour code and create a dazzling look with sparkling white jewellery. You can choose to wear a pretty red lehenga with clear white pearl, Kundan and diamond jewellery to accessorize your look!
And we have to say that going OTT completely works out for you!
3. SILVER AND GOLDEN GO HAND IN HAND
Do you have both golden and silver embroidery in your bridal outfit? Wear a rani pink outfit and opt for a dual-toned (golden and silver) necklace and matha Patti of your wedding jewellery set. This is something you can choose if you want to rock a look that combines silver and gold.
4. DARK JEWELLERY OVER A LIGHT PASTEL OUTFIT
You can choose to pick an intensely deep shade from the same colour palette as your wedding outfit. So while burgundy-plum is not a contrast colour, it can look so far from your pink pastel lehenga and your look comes across coordinated and yet each aspect pops individually!
5. WHEN IN DOUBT, CHOOSE GOLDEN!
If you have too many colours in your outfit, it would not make any sense to coordinate your jewellery with one of the colours in your lehenga. You do something really smart and opt for simple golden Kundan jewellery. It will not dilute the essence of the bridal outfit, and it adds so much elegance to it!
6. TRADITIONAL MEETS MODERN!
This is the coolest kind of coordination you could make happen- traditional with modern! You can go for a mint green floral lehenga, thus catering to a traditional part. Then, team it up with a diamond a gold choker, but not the kind of chokers that we see usually…choose geometric which sit well with the neckline of your blouse. You can also team it up with gold earrings and Haath Phool.
7. COORDINATE THE COLOUR OF JEWELLERY WITH BRIDAL DUPATTA
This is one trend that can never go horrible. If you don’t want to go out experimenting on your big day, just opt for this amazing bridal jewellery trend instead. Coordinate the shades of your jewellery with that of your dupatta. It will add symmetry to your look and will make you appear super stunning! You can never go wrong with this wedding jewellery set selection for your big day.
