Experimental Bride

The bridal look has undergone a sea change over the years. The age of minimalism is passe. “More is more” is the new dictum when it comes to the bridal look.

The modern bride is far more experimental compared to her earlier counterparts when it comes to colour, cut, design, fabric and accessories. In the experimental bridal couture vocabulary, the bride wears off-white, silhouettes are anything but standard and embroidery is edgy.

If you want to nail the experimental bride look, but don’t know how to go about it, we show you how.


You can opt for velvet, raw silk, satin, chanderi or sheer. Velvet has a natural sheen and luxurious texture, while raw silk is clean, crisp and shiny. Satin, on the other hand, has a gorgeous luster. Chanderi drapes well and has a glossy and sheer texture. Chiffon or georgette is the best choice if you have summer wedding.

All these fabrics flatter the body and have a beautiful fall. Rohit Bal and Sabyasachi have added velvet lehengas in their bridal wear in 2016. The fabric is pure royalty.

Manish Malhotra, Payal Khandwala as well as Sabyasachi have created stunning bridal wear with Benarasi lehenga with raw silk blouse. Satin lehengas embellished with aari or zardosi work are also trending. When you are opting for a Chanderi lehenga you can choose a zari border at the base and smaller motifs all over chanderi. A chiffon lehenga with zardosi, zari and fine embroidery will look ethereal.


When it comes to the colour of your bridal wear, an experimental bride can think beyond red. You can experiment with blues, bright pinks, sea green, off-whites and orange as well. Tarun Tahiliani, Reynu Tandon, Gaurav Gupta and Harpreet Narula play around beautifully with colours. You can choose a wedding outfit that stand out from any of these designers and make a statement.


You can experiment with Fishcuts, which are flared at the bottom and body hugging at the waist. Manish Malhotra and Harpreet Narula have A-line lehengas, which have minimal flares at the bottom and fit at the waist. You can also try Asymmetric lehengas, which have drapes clinging or pleats attached to the waistline panel for an unbalanced look. For an instant Barbie-look you can opt for a ruffled lehenga.


Since your ensemble and make up are going to be heavy, it is better to opt for a heavy necklace and bare ears or vice-versa. It might look gaudy if you wear everything. If you have a hefty maang tika and heavy embellishment on your choli, opt for minimal ears.

Don’t try to match jewellery and your clothes. Try to wear contrasting jewellery. With a beige coloured outfit you can pair up emerald necklace. With an off-white and green lehenga, rubies will look good. Pearls and colourless stones will go well with a pastel-coloured outfit.

Make a statement

You can experiment your look by pairing your wedding outfit with a statement jewellery. A statement piece can be crown jewellery — a headband — or a pair of adorned earrings or a bedecked neckpiece. You can also add quirky props like a sequined belt and a pair of dark sunglasses, a la Kala Chashma.

Importance Things to Keep In Mind While Buying Wedding Dresses

Your big day is here and you have popped your eyes open. All you can think about is that moment you say, “Yes, I do!” Stop! Slow down for a minute! You need to prepare yourself mentally, physically and emotionally.

Before you jump out of bed, say your prayers, affirmations or meditations, to put you in the right frame of mind to deal with all the emotions you will go through today and to prepare you for all the people you will encounter throughout the day. OK, now you can get out of bed. Eat some breakfast and afterward get a quick glass of wine or your favorite drink!

Your bridal party will soon arrive to prepare you all for hair and make up. Keep your spirits high and savor the final moments before you become Mrs. You may have opted for your photographer to capture these moments while you get ready and prepare for your ceremony. Remember that she will not only photograph the make up, dress and accessories but will also document this time with your closest friends and family. You may be showered with some gifts during this time.

By this time, your groom and his groomsmen will also be getting ready. His guys will help ease his mind and celebrate him tying the knot.

As your wedding ceremony draws near, you will get dressed and have the final make up touches done just before you leave to join the procession. In more recent years, some couples have strayed away from the tradition of not seeing each other prior to the ceremony and instead take a brief moment to pray with each other.

The Mothers will start the procession by being seated, the Groom’s mother to the right, the Bride’s mother to the left. The bridesmaids coupled with the groomsmen will follow – Bridesmaids standing on the left, groomsmen on the right side, left of where the Groom will stand. The groom then enters from the side entrance and stands to the right side of the altar. Your Maid of Honor will ensure that your veil and dress are fixed before she walks down the aisle with the best man. He will stand to the left, next to the groom. The ring bearer follows. Your flower girl will scatter petals or confetti to prepare for your grand entrance. If you are following “Lucian time” this may be about an hour after your scheduled time. So now, here comes the Bride!

The ceremony starts and will sometimes include special readings, words of advice from your wedding officiant, pastor or priest, exchange of vows, signing for the register, then you will share your first kiss. Your ceremony will be wrapped up with the pronouncement of Husband & Wife.

Your guests will enjoy cocktails while your photographer proceeds with the bridal party for formal photos. It may be a few hours till you and your husband are able to enjoy time alone so have your wedding planner discuss you having a few moments together. Your photographer may choose to focus on your bridal party while you take this time, or allow you to walk ahead while she takes photos from the back. Take these few minutes to bond and prepare for the next leg of your celebration.

When the photos are over, the bridal party will precede your entrance. Expect hugs, kisses and well wishes from everyone as you walk through the crowd.

Although the format of receptions many vary with each wedding, the elements all remain. The first dance often comes first. The Bride and Groom will then be seated and then dinner. As you nears an end, it is custom for the best man and Maid of Honor to give their speeches. These speeches will often bring tears, laughter and more well wishes for the future. Grab your glass and toast to your renewed future. Mother/ son and Bride/ father dances, tossing of the garter and the bridal bouquet follow. Are you ready for cake, because you’ve reached cake cutting time!

Now the party really begins! Enjoy the dancing and celebration of your union with your closest family and friends. You may decide to have a final song with your husband before you leave. This may wind up your reception. You can also have your guests join you outside to bid you farewell.

Remember, this is your day and you may not include all of these aspects and in some cases you may even add or alter the day’s events. Nothing is a must except for some legal formalities. Tailor your day to suit your hopes and expectations. But apart from the format, be sure to take time for yourself and with your husband so you can be mentally and emotionally in tune with yourself and each other to make your day one that you will never forget.

The Pain And Triumph Of A World Famous Hymn

Ireland, the 1850’s, it is the eve of the long anticipated wedding between Joseph Scriven and his beloved fiancé. After a long courtship and deep love, his beloved bride would gleefully accept his proposal, and with great anticipation they would wait for the day of their wedding to arrive.

However, what should have been a joyous occasion became a devastating time of mourning on what was to be the happiest day of their lives. It would be the first of many losses that Joseph would face. Painfully, Joseph’s fiancé drowned in an accident just hours before she was scheduled to walk down the aisle.

Devastated, he moves far away, across the globe to Canada, as far from the place of pain he could go. There he would spend years in healing, years in questioning, years in pain. Eventually, though he didn’t think he ever would again, he met another woman and fell in love. He proposed, then tragedy struck again. His new love died of pneumonia.

Joseph’s story doesn’t have the tidy happy ending that often comes from heroes of the faith. Perhaps this is one reason his story is so powerful. In fact, after his painful losses he would spend the rest of his life battling depression. But in the valley there is a moment in Joseph Scriven’s life that has touched people from all around the world for over a century.

Not long after his second love died he received word his mother was deathly ill. He had committed himself to giving love wherever he could after going through such devastation. He wanted more than anything to bring light into the darkness people find themselves facing.

In this place of healing, he sat down and penned a poem for his mother, a poem he wrote to encourage her and comfort her. He never intended for it to become world famous or touch millions of lives. But his poem has. Eventually it was set to music and has remained a favorite song for many people for many years.

Here is what Joseph wrote to his mother:

“What a friend we have in Jesus, All our sins and griefs to bear! What a privilege to carry, Everything to God in prayer! Oh, what peace we often forfeit, Oh, what needless pain we bear, All because we do not carry, Everything to God in prayer!”

Sharon Chilson once shared, “God has covered my sins with His immeasurable grace.” Indeed, by his grace he upholds our very lives. Scriven’s words are a reminder that whether we are on top of the mountain or low in the valley, his grace is sufficient. His arms are strong enough to carry our deepest pains, and his love is enough to bring healing in the midst of our greatest fears. Truly, what a friend we have in Jesus.

Online Dating: Can Someone Increase Their Chances Of Being Rejected When They Edit Their Pictures?

When someone’s uses online dating, the can have the need to create the perfect profile. And as they want to create a good impression, it could be said that this is to be expected.

Fortunately, it is not going to need to take them very long to create the right profile. They might have rough idea of what they need to do, or they might be unclear as to what needs to be done.


However, even if one is not sure about what to do, it doesn’t mean that they will need to sit around. The only thing they will need to do is go online, and they will end up finding plenty of information to guide them.

Still, this is not to say that one needs to spend days or evens weeks doing this, as they could just get a few tips. Ultimately, the sooner they create a profile, the sooner they will be able to find someone.


At the same time, if they were to rush into this, they could end up making it harder than they need to. Therefore, it might be a good idea for them to take their time and to find the best way for them to do it.

After all, it is unlikely to have much of an effect on their life if they were to wait a little while longer. That is unless one wants to find someone to be with in time for a certain event; this can mean that they are not going to be able to wait.

A Different Need

Yet, although they can believe that they want a relationship, it might be more accurate to say that they just want someone to play a role for them. For example, if one needed a ‘plus-one’ to take to a wedding, their main priority could be to find someone who looks good.

The other person is then going to serve the kind of purpose that a sports car often serves; with this being a way for someone to create the right impression. In this sense, the other person can be seen as nothing more than an object to fulfil their needs.


When one is able to take their time, it can also stop them from coming from a place of neediness. Instead of acting as though this is a life or death scenario, they can have a more laid back approach.

Through being this way, it can be a lot easier for them to move forward with this area of their life. Another thing that they could also do is to ask their friends for guidance, and they might be only too happy to help.


There is the chance that at least one of their friends is in a relationship with someone who they met online. It would then be easy to say that this would be the best person to talk to about it.

At the same time, this could be someone who just got lucky, and they might soon come to see that this is not the best option. It would then be the same asking someone for advice on how to win big at a casino, even though this is something that just happened.

A Number of Different Sources

What one could do is take in what their friends have to say and what is suggested online, and then come to their own conclusion. But regardless of what they do, there are going to be two things that they need to focus on.

They will need to make sure their write-up sounds right, and it will also be vital for them to have the right pictures up. If they don’t have the right ones up, it might not matter what they say about themselves.

A Grey Area

It would then be easy to say that the only thing that matters is having the right pictures up, but there can be more to it. As even though someone can like what they look like, this could soon change if they were to read their description.

When it comes to how someone will respond, it can all depend on what they are looking for. Another thing that they can play a part here is what kind of emotional state they are in, as they might go against their true needs if they are not at peace, for instance.

The image

And while one might take a few pictures and then upload them, they might decide to edit them first. In their eyes, they might believe that they don’t look good enough, or that doing this will make it easier for them to find someone.

As a result of this, how they look online might not completely match up with how they look offline. What they could also do is use pictures that are number of years old, and this could mean that they will look radically different.

A Facade

However, although this will allow them to get their foot in the door, so to speak, it might not allow them to go much further. Once someone meets them, they could be for a big shock, and one could find that it doesn’t go any further.

This could then be a time when they will feel rejected, and they could find it hard to understand what went wrong. One way of looking at this would be to say that one postponed being rejected and, through meeting the other person, they faced what they would have experienced in the beginning if they hadn’t edited their images (or used old ones).


What this illustrates is how important it is to use images that are up to date; if one wasn’t going to meet the people they were talking to, it wouldn’t matter. But as this is why they are talking to them, the truth is likely to come out at some point.

Go hiking: Grab on the backpacks and pick the hiking stick. Your friend will not mind pulling the laces of her hiking shoes. This is what she wants instead of a party bang at some night club. If the bride to be is an adventure lover who has that extra something for mountains and valleys, there is nothing which can beat the fun of the all-girls hiking trip to the mountain she loves. You can plan a day hike or stay in the mountain top on tents or just make it more beautiful with hammocks. Have bonfire, sing her favorite songs and have some rum to keep the party warm. Camping in a jungle after a sweaty hiking is something special to her, so make her feel on the top of the world.

Motorbike trip: Women are adventurous and they love to test their limits.

Leather jackets, knee pads, helmets and rugged denim, if this is what defines your friend, she will be more than happy and excited about her bachelorette rather than a dinner at a fancy restaurant. She is a person who loves the road more than the dance floor, so plan out with her fellow biker babes and rest who cannot ride can be the pillion riders. It will be fun for everyone.

Get an Amazing Car for Your Wedding

You can’t go wrong with a vintage wedding car hire. This is a delightful touch to add to your wedding plans. You can get one car just for you and your new spouse. You can also get additional cars for your parents or the wedding party. Keep in mind these older vehicles typically only have room for two passengers.

Specific Cars

There can be quite a bit of variety when it comes to what a business classifies as a vintage wedding car hire. Therefore, you need to ask to see specific cars before you set it up. If possible, go to the location and see the vehicles in person. If that isn’t possible, ask them to email you pictures of the inside and outside of the vehicles. They may have pictures on their website too.

It is important to know the specific vehicle you will be assigned to. The last thing you want is for your wedding day to be lessened due to a disappointment with a vintage wedding car hire. Find a company with a great reputation so you can be confident they will show up on time and be professional.

Licensing and Insurance

Never assume the provider has a current license or insurance for a vintage wedding car hire. Ask to see verification of those documents. If they are a professional, they will offer you that information without any hesitation. If they give you the run around, you need to take your business elsewhere.

You also need to ask about the qualifications of their drivers. It is important to make sure they have passed a background check, they have a valid driver’s license, and they have driving experience. You aren’t out of line to ask about such details because you will be passengers with them. It is important to work with a provider who takes such matters seriously.

Discuss the Cost

A reputable company is going to provide you with all of the costs upfront. You aren’t going to have to worry about hidden fees. Yet it is also your responsibility to read the contract before you sign it. If you see any mention of fees you need to have the explained to you. Always put the question on the table about what the price includes so you don’t waste your time.

You don’t want to get to the final paperwork and then discover it isn’t going to be a good deal for you. Most providers of a vintage wedding car hire have you pay a deposit at the time when you make the reservation. Then the balance is due the day of the wedding. If you need to change your wedding or cancel it, will you be refunded?

No one wants to think about such scenarios but it does happen. It is a good idea to protect yourself. You never know if something will come up that changes what you have in motion right now.

Follow Up

In the last couple of months leading up to the wedding day, make sure you follow up with the company. While you have your paperwork that verifies the reservation and other details, make sure nothing slipped through the cracks. Scheduling mistakes an happen. Verify they are still on track about your reservation, where to pick you up, times, and other details.

Most of the time, everything will be in place just fine. However, if there is a mix up, there is time to get it taken care of and resolved. Then your wedding day plans including a vintage wedding car hire can go very smoothly and you can just enjoy every minute of it.

About Us: The right vehicle for your special occasion is important. It is a nice touch to create the setting you want. You can select one vehicle to arrive in or you can select several for your entire group such as a wedding party to use for the event.

Importance Things to Keep In Mind While Buying Wedding Dresses

The idea of getting married is exciting in itself. Wedding is one of the most important events in the life of a person. And, when it is such an important day in one’s life, you would want every aspect of the wedding to be perfect including the wedding dress. Every bride has thought of how she wants her wedding dress to be. Colour and style can depend on the religion of the bride and the groom. In Western culture, brides choose white wedding dress. This was made popular by Queen Victoria in the 19th century. In eastern cultures, brides choose red as that is considered auspicious. The wedding dress is something that you are going to cherish for your lifetime.

As excited as you might be about buying your dress, there are a few things that one needs to remember while buying the dress.

• Have a clear picture of how you want your wedding dress to be like. Once you go to the shop, every wedding dress will seem pretty. Tell your designer how you want your dress to be and don’t be tempted by every dress.

• Do not take too many people along while shopping for the dress. Different people have different opinions. Some might like a dress which the others don’t. Take along one or two of your friends or family member who know you better. This way you can find the gown that you have always dreamt of and not feel confused and pressurised by others.

• Book an appointment. Scheduling an appointment means that you will get a complete hour of undivided attention. You might not be lucky to find a salesperson who is not busy at that moment.

• Go shopping on weekdays. People usually shop during weekends and you will be surrounded amongst a huge crowd where every bride or bridesmaid will be looking for that perfect dress. Skip work on a weekday and go shopping and you will be getting more attention from the salesperson.

• Be aware of your body type and shop accordingly. Knowing your body type – pear, full, thin, petite is the first step in finding the perfect dress for yourself. You might lose some weight for your wedding. Tell your designer what you have in mind and get the dress accordingly.

• Be aware of the hidden costs. Ask the salesperson not only about the cost of the dress but also about the extra costs that might add up with the alterations or the veil or headpiece that you plan on wearing.

We hope that this article will provide enough information about wedding dresses. So, when you buy one for yourself, you will choose the best one following the guide we have provided.
