Hacks to 5 Nightmares Real Brides have during Wedding Planning

Hacks for Bridal Nightmares

Nightmares just aren’t about ghosts, gremlins, and creepy-crawlies; ask a bride-to-be and all her nightmares revolve around the decorator being confused between lilac and lavender. Wedding day prep not only brings a load of responsibilities but a few undertones of mini panic attacks and nightmares that make you more aware of all the little things you need to prep for your big day. A few brides-to-be wrote in and we decided to list some of the very real nightmares they experienced along with solutions on how to avoid making these nightmares a reality.

The Venue You Set Your Heart On Was Booked Out

The Venue You Set Your Heart On Was Booked Out

Imagine having to give up on the venue of your dreams. We hope that never, ever happens to any of you, brides-to-be. This nightmare should remain a nightmare.

How to avoid this nightmare – It is advised that you book your venue at-least 10-12 months before the wedding. Once your venue is blocked for your date, the décor, food, DJ and other details will follow.

It Rains During Your Bright Summer Mid-May Wedding

It Rains During Your Bright Summer Mid-May Wedding ​

People opt for the months of May/October-December for a rain-free wedding, sun-shiny summer wedding. But sometimes, just sometimes, the weather decides to be fussy. What does one do in a situation like that?

How to avoid this nightmare – Always talk to your decorator and venue and set up an alternate indoor venue in case the rain gods decide to rain it down on your big day.

Your Lehenga Turned Out To Be Awkwardly Short

Your Lehenga Turned Out To Be Awkwardly Short

When your family follows the age-old Indian ritual where the bridal lehenga is given by the groom’s family, there are chances of people not picking up the right size or length. Imagine your lehenga being so awkwardly short that you’d have to wear it really low – now that’s a scenario no bride wants to be in!

How to avoid this nightmare – Fittings. Fittings.Fittings – One magic word to rule them all!

Turned Up In My Pajamas – My Fiancé In A Tux

Turned Up In My Pajamas – My Fiancé In A Tux

A bride-to-be tells us about her real nightmare where everything was perfectly going the way it was supposed to – the lights and drapes were in place, flowers beautifully blooming, candles lit up and her handsome groom-to-be ready in a dapper tux. But the tragic flaw in this dreamy nightmare was the bride-to-be arriving in her teddy-bear print pajamas! Yikes.

How to avoid this nightmare – Make sure all your outfits for each function are kept ready at least a week before the wedding.

A Humungous Fight With Your Fiancé

A Humungous Fight With Your Fiancé

So much to do. So many ceremonies to perform. Arguments over themes, drapes and cocktails are bound to happen.

How to avoid this nightmare – Talk, communicate, text, call A LOT – use every method, social media and more to keep your husband/bride-to-be in the loop. Communicate emotions, feelings and every thought even though irrelevant – it’ll help you stay calm and move on from arguments quickly. But most importantly, laugh a little, swim out of the wedding planning puddle and distance yourself every so often from this process to really tell yourself, you’re doing this to get together for the long haul. So do just that!

When you love someone, there are times when you fall short of words to express how you really feel. Sometimes saying those ‘three magical words’ is tougher than we think. 

Thankfully, we have lyricists and amazing songwriters who have penned the feeling of love and affection.

6 Cool Ways To Use Crop Tops As Lehenga Blouses At Your Bestie’s Indian Wedding

Times keep changing and so do trends! While that heavily embroidered, typical lehenga-choli set was the norm at every Indian wedding, it’s really not the case now. Tbh, even brides themselves choose to go minimal! And while it started with easing out on the embroidery or going for lighter / brighter colours, Indian wedding lehengas now have a whole new look, especially if you’re a bridesmaid – crop tops as lehenga blouses! Sounds cool, doesn’t it? What we like about this style is that it meets midway between western fashion and Indian tradition, without having to compromise on either!

Here’s how you can use crop tops as lehenga blouses:

1. Go through your wardrobe for short / crop tops. We know you have em! Find a suitable colour and mix-n-match with a nice lehenga skirt. (If you don’t really don’t have one, you can always just buy one for an inexpensive price – colaba causeway/bandra in Bombay, Sarojini in Delhi, Commercial Street in Bangalore.)


 

2. The Shirt Lehenga: Pair up a heavier lehenga skirt with a shirt of yours for a laid-back yet trendy look. From Alia to Dia Mirza and more, this one’s got all Bollywood biggies rocking it!


 

3. No crop-top? No problem! Just take any fitted top and tuck it in your lehenga skirt. Drape the dupatta so it looks more festive. Make sure that the top you’ve chosen actually goes well with the lehenga skirt.


 

4. Modern All The Way: What’s a lehenga? Literally a short top and a voluminous skirt! For the skirt, try playing with western prints or flowy/lighter fabrics like chiffon. For the blouse – I am in love with this black crop top with a criss-cross tie-up back! Fits in perfectly with those Indian blouse backs, except cooler and edgier.


 

5. Take a normal tube / off-shoulder top and pair it up with a long jacket (or short, whichever you like). Feel free to go for a kaftan-style shrug or something, like Jacqueline Fernandez here:


 

6. Personal fav! I like how easy-to-wear and comfortable this T-shirt style blouse is. Knit fabrics/ stretchy, T-shirt fabrics actually work really well and are way too cool! Pair that plain blouse with a statement neckpiece or an embellished dupatta and you’re good to go.

How To Find The Perfect Blouse Neckline For Your Body Shape

V-Neck Blouse

A V-neckline creates a longer, leaner silhouette. It highlights your face and elongates your body. So it’s ideal for women with wider shoulders, thick torsos or larger busts. Also works brilliantly for those with a shorter neck.
Note that a very high V can make a large bust look saggy. And a wide V balances out pear shapes.

Bateau / Boat Neckline

A bateau or boat neckline can be worn sleeveless or with sleeves. This works well if you have a slender shape / long neck. Avoid if you have a short neck or a heavy bust as it won’t be flattering.

Sweetheart Neckline

A sweetheart neckline forms two curves like a type of heart shape at the bust line. It provides considerable coverage as well as accentuates cleavage (the right amount, of course). Hence, works well for large busted women. However, it can also be worn by petite women to give the illusion of curves.
It also visually elongates the face / neck area so great for those with a shorter chin or neck.

Sweetheart Neckline

Square Neckline

Suitable for all body types, but work great for larger busts or chubby torsos as they provide a structured frame. Also helps to elongate short neck and narrow shoulders. Recommended for round faces as it balances the roundness. Also for pear shapes as it gives the illusion of wider shoulders.

Off-Shoulder / Strapless Blouse

Women with petite figures can go for this neckline to give a longer and taller silhouette. A strapless style also helps to elongate the neck. Avoid if you have chubby/flabby arms or wide shoulders.

High Neckline / Turtle-Necks

A high neck or turtleneck blouse is best suited for those with a long face and neck. Large busted women or those with short necks need to avoid this as it won’t flatter your silhouette.

Works perfectly for those with a pear-shaped body as it balances out the wide hips. If you’re conscious of your arms, avoid halter necklines as they may make you look wider than you are.

7 Mistakes to Avoid While Getting a Lehenga or Saree Blouse Stitched!

APPROPRIATE FABRIC

It all starts with choosing the right fabric. Usually, the lehenga is stitched a few months before the wedding. So make sure that you choose a fabric that will suit weather conditions then too. (You don’t want to be wearing heavy velvet in the summer or sheer net in the winter.)


APPROPRIATE FABRIC

AVOID MEASUREMENTS DURING YOUR PERIOD

When you have your period, your body retains water which in turn causes you to bloat. Avoid getting your blouse/lehenga measurements taken during this time as they most likely will result in wrong measurements.

AVOID MEASUREMENTS DURING YOUR PERIOD

ARMHOLE FIT

Ensure that the armhole fit is just right. If it’s too tight, it’ll create discomfort. You don’t want the fabric under your arm to rip during the jaimala!

ARMHOLE FIT

KEEP ENOUGH MARGIN

While tightening a blouse is easy, loosening one is not. Always keep 2 inches allowance in the seams so you can make alterations as and when needed. This way you can get a perfect fit on the wedding day.
Also, never get a blouse that is smaller than your size thinking that you’ll lose weight before the wedding! Just. Never.

KEEP ENOUGH MARGIN

SIDE ZIPPER INSTEAD OF BUTTONS

With all the bending and moving during your shaadi rituals, buttons may create gaps in the fastening. A concealed side zipper is perfect as it’ll stay put as well as stay hidden and not interfere with your blouse design.

SIDE ZIPPER INSTEAD OF BUTTONS

BLOUSE PADDING

When decided between a padded blouse or lingerie, we suggest you stick with lingerie as it will fit perfectly. However, if your blouse cut/style doesn’t agree with lingerie, make sure that the padding of the blouse is positioned perfectly. Also, ensure that it is neither too thick nor too thin.

BLOUSE PADDING

WEAR THE CORRECT BRA SIZE DURING MEASUREMENTS

Wearing a bra that sits perfectly is crucial to your measurements as it will contribute to the fit of the blouse. Ideally, during measurements, wear the bra that you will wear on the wedding day.
