Top 2015 Tips and Trends for Indian Beach Weddings

Beach weddings are becoming more and more popular, and we can definitely understand why! A light fashion filled suitcase, tanning necessities, and flowers in your hair, what more could you want! But it’s not always that simple, with a number of beach events it’s hard to know what bridal Indian wear to select to suit both the event and the destination.

Here are our top 2015 tips and beach wedding trends:

What to wear to the beach:

Swimsuits are a must for a beach wedding, and 2015 is all about going all-out with your swimwear choices! Think Fringing, bright prints and sexy cut outs. If you are not completely comfortable bearing all in a minimal swimsuit, team with a flowing kaftan or light jacket for the perfect layering technique.

Further to the cover-ups, kaftans and floaty jumpsuits in bright and sunny tones make for a perfect combo when it comes to beach wear. Go for simple prints or all block colours so not to over-power your outfit.

On The Other Side Of The Fashion Show

Yesterday was the Fashion Show « East meets West » by Imperial College’s Indian Community, 
held at the Phoenix Theatre.

If you were lucky enough to be part of the audience, you got to enjoy the view of amazing outfits, impressive dance routines and gorgeous girls.

As I was backstage, I witnessed all the hustle and bustle, the general excitement and for some, the stress due to an upcoming performance. It was really rewarding to be « on the other side » for once and help make the show happen !
