There are two kinds of Indian brides. The first category comprises of the coy, blushing bride who has dreamt of having a big fat Indian wedding as long as she can remember! Hunting for ideas, she flips through magazines, browses online, and checks out social media profiles of just married friends (and strangers). And then, there is the other type – those who are in strict denial of the fact that their wedding is fast approaching (OMG, is it really next month!) and still don’t have a clue about what to wear. When the realization hits, the smart, contemporary bride-to-be resorts to what we all do in the times of crisis – look online for ideas. If you are a bride to be, you are at the right place! We bring you 29 beautiful bridal looks from across India that will inspire you to start prepping for your dream wedding attire.
