Wedding Blouse Designs – Elevate your Bridal Look to the T
Long Sleeves are the surest shot way of uplifting the grandeur of your bridal lehenga. The best part is they complement well all body shapes and sizes. Whether you have heavy arms (that you are unreasonably conscious of) or thin arms, a heavy bosom area or a lighter chest, the long sleeves of the wedding blouse bring all the attention to the trousseau are really well. You may opt for sheer sleeves or fully embroidered heavy blouse sleeves; they sure look flattering as hell. Ace bridal wear designers Falguni and Shane Peacock experiments a lot with the full-length sleeves in both their lehenga and blouse designs and not that we are complaining. Their wedding blouse designs are absolutely drool-worthy and we love the fact that they are so modern, glamorous and state-of-the-art when it comes to bridal couture.
Below are the two wedding blouse designs from their collection. Leading Fashion and Lifestyle blogger, Juhi Godambe nailed the first look in her lean, sculpted figure. The full-length sleeves add more definition and structure to her upper body with this blouse. In the second look, the full sleeves along with a plunging neckline befittingly add to the whole sensuous and sexy siren vibes of the colour red. If you are seriously mulling over going ahead with a full sleeves blouse for your wedding lehenga, our sincere advice is to give no second thoughts and just go ahead.
The fashion critic in us vehemently believes that no bride in this world can afford to not fall for this lehenga. It is what all bridal fantasies are made of, of course apart from the fantasies for her man! It is interesting to note here that the designers have not restricted themselves from heavily embroidering the whole blouse, despite the fact that the lehenga is heavy too. The whole look exudes the strong vibes of a Persian bride in all her glory. The bosom area has been highlighted with a cup-style blouse and the expansive skin show at the décolletage area adds to the glamour of the vibe. If you are looking for an overwhelming lehenga for yourself and do not mind a low neckline, this lehenga is by far the most gorgeous set that you can get.
An off-shoulder blouse is a sure shot way to add oodles of oomph to your wedding lehenga blouse. It instantly draws all the attention to your collar bones and décolletage area. Irrespective of whether you are plump, slim, curvaceous or lean, an off-shoulder blouse looks stunning on all body types. With an Indian silhouette, it does not even run the risqué of looking too bold or outrageous. Depending on your comfort with skin show and how easily you can carry off an off-shoulder look, choose how low your neckline should fall. Also, you can either keep the sleeves small or go all out with full-length sleeves. Smaller sleeves do make you look more petite and lean framed. A one-shoulder blouse can also be tried out as an option. In fact, we find the one-side full sleeve shoulder gown way too sexy and a robust statement maker.
A classy twist to an off-shoulder wedding blouse design or a low neckline is to some sequined sheer fabric to it. The glistening translucence of the fabric lends undeniable femininity and elegance to the whole garment. If a fairytale vibe is what you have in mind for yourself, we would strongly suggest adding sheer fabric either on the neckline or on the sleeves. You may even consider it for the back of your blouse.
Contemporary fashion is the watchword for the bridal styles these days. Give your wedding blouse a stylish twist with a bustier blouse complemented with a lace framework. This blouse shows the skin from beneath the lace and makes for quite an elite fashion statement. The great thing is this style looks equally stunning in all the bridal colours, be it maroon, pink, orange, golden or beige.
Tassels and ruffles have been in vogue for quite some time now, be it the lehengas or the couture gowns and dresses. If used in moderation, they add the much needed party look to the outfit. Go in for a stylized blouse and add a few tassels on the sleeves or around the mid-riff area. The feather-styled blouses much popularized by the designer couple Falguni and Shane Peacock look quite ravishing, to say the least. They add that red carpet glamour to the look and one feels nothing short of a celebrity on their special day.
Corset wedding blouses are not for the faint-hearted. They add a well-defined structure and a robust personality to your whole look. If you are a bride who does not like to play demure or docile and knows how to lay her terms, this is the blouse design for you. Wear your strong personality and striking individuality with panache and do not restrict yourself from putting forth your boss lady vibes even on your wedding day.
Your bridal jewellery would also add the much needed coverage to the look. Pairing up a corset wedding blouse with a heavy choker (we love the Sabyasachi style) is a very stylish and contemporary way of styling up your wedding look.
If you are a daring bride and a dazzling ‘all-out-there’ diva bride is your definition of your bridal look, then do give this bralette blouse design a consideration. You can play around with some jewellery or some sheer net fabric to tone down the sensuality. But this blouse is definitely going to be a trendsetter and get your bridal look remembered (in a good and stylish way) for long.
When it comes to the back detailings of the wedding blouse design these days, backs with sheer net or big tassels are quite in these days. You can also opt for a backless blouse. Just go a little sexy with the back details and keep it as low as possible. With all the heavy embroidery in the front and with a see-through dupatta, you would want atleast some glimpse of the skin to show through at the back to counterbalance all the finery.
Though we are all in for experimenting with your wedding blouse design and giving it a modern edge, we equally endorse the idea of supporting the traditional designs. Even the age-old blouses look really gorgeous if styled well. If you are someone who prefers to keep things traditional, just add some bit of an element of the modern designing, be it on the sleeves, neckline or the back, and you would make for your own best version of the bride.
Finally, we would like to say that the blouse in your wedding attire can really make all the difference to the final look, so do ensure to put in a lot of thought and a bit of your personality to it to make it your own.
