Silky Stylish footwear for the Princess! - Bridal footwear

         As a girl, I was always fascinated about shoes and loved to collect different varieties.So when it came to the weddding, the footwear selection was so special for me, I was tempted to buy all the shoes from the bridal wear collection. I ended up buying one, two,three, four.........and finally  ten shoes for the wedding.However I wore the golden shoe which matched my saree for the wedding and the peacock coloured shoe for the reception.
          There is always a wide choice for the selection of the shoes , but choosing the right one is the key. There are certain things which needs to be given a thought before choosing the bridal foot wear.
  1. First thing to remember is, to pick your shoes after you have chosen your wedding outfit. This will help you pick shoes which complement your wedding outfit.
  2. Aim to pick your shoes around the same time as your dress, as you will need them for the fittings to determine the length of your dress in case of any alterations. It’s always good to account for some buffer time just in case the size is not available or for customization.
  3. Lay stress on the sole and check for cushioning and comfort level. This is extremely important as you may have to wear them all day long and stand for a few hours.
  4. Do not forget to consider when choosing a pair of high heels. The right is high enough to make you slimmer, but if it turns out it can make your partner look short, this is certainly not the ideal type of shoe.
  5. Note the floor of your wedding location before choosing a shoe. If the floor area wedding including a slick, do not wear shoes with soles that glossy because the risk of making you slip.
  6. The experts suggest the best time to pick or buy wedding shoes is during the afternoon or evening. This is because feet tend to swell at the time. This way you can prevent the shoe suddenly feel cramped at the wedding ceremony lasted until the evening.
  7. Whatever kind of shoe you choose, make sure you try it first before the wedding takes place. Wear shoes for walking and standing around the house. This can reduce the risk of blisters on your feet that happy day.
  8. ALWAYS, plan for a back up pair, just in case!
  9. Remember, that if your wedding outfit is long, your shoes may not show as much. In such a case you can opt for a nicer yet practical option as compared to a shorter length outfit in which case your shoes would be seen.
Some inspirations for silky stylish Indian bridal foot wear .....

                You have chosen your bridal saree, so what next ? Selection of a bridal blouse style and design plays a important part.A well designed blouse can make you look great even in a simple saree , on the otherhand an ill fitting blouse can totally ruin the whole look.

               So very good care must be taken while choosing  the blouse.A  best looking blouse depends on many factors like shape of body, face, shoulders, bust, and comfort level. Whatever your shape is, there is certainly a right stylish blouse for you. Select a design that suits you best.

Neckline plays the most important part in choosing Saree (sari) blouse,it should perfectly go 
with your overall appearance for that perfect look.

  • High collar blouses look good on women having a thin and long neck
  • Short or thick neck women or one's having a double chin should choose V-neck blouses.
  • If you have short neck and want it to appear longer, then go for V neck or U neck blouse.
  • If your neck is too long, avoid deep U and V neck.
  • Women having firm necks could show off by opting for the square shape blouse. The depth of the neck depends on comfort level
  • Taller woman should choose circle or square neck blouses.            
  •  Shorter woman should choose oval or rectangle neck blouse.
