13 Offbeat Bridal Outfits For Your Pre & Post Wedding Ceremonies

By Divya Arora .

Gone are the times when the world of weddings used to undergo paradigm shifts over a span of every few years. It’s rather been changing dynamically at a fast pace of weeks, always having us sitting at the edge of our seats ready to take a plunge into everything new and avant garde that brims up.
One aspect that’s magnificently upturned is how brides doll up for their wedding. Be it giving a few jewellery pieces a miss, going all natural on their makeup or choosing unconventionally sassy and absolutely modern outfits that would traditionally never make it to the bridal look list. And to be honest, we love how millennial brides are opting for such chic, bold, and sultry silhouettes for their wedding nuptials.

If you’re someone who would love to ditch the classic Indian pieces for some of your ceremonies and rather don a contemporary look, here’s a lookbook for you to take inspiration from.

1. A gorgeous black gown with a super hot back that’s perfect for a cocktail bash.

2. Edgy rompers for your intimate or even grand mehndi ceremony.

3. A shimmery gold dress with a tulle train for a glamorous look.

4. And how about this happy & vibrant crop top and pants ensemble?

5. We are rooting for this pastel pink gown with 3D chrome pleats.

6. For how this bride teamed her straight fit dress with floral jewellery, this look is a beautiful mix of both modern and traditional.

7. This bride’s lehenga with a thigh-high zipper slit is a proof of how one can sass up even an Indian outfit.

8. Contemporary dresses in flowy or fancy fabrics in unique silhouettes are a great option for a poolside event, welcome brunches, or a fun sundowner.

9. A high on glam dress with added frilly train in a striking hue is surely going to get all heads turning.

10. For a fun & groovy function, a casual look like this curated with a super cool jacket, sneakers, and blingy shorts would be real edgy.

11. A jumpsuit is a highly favored option by brides who want to don a distinguished yet subtle look for their pre-wedding ceremonies.

12. Even if you’re wearing a top and skirt ensemble, glam up the blouse by having a sexy and plunging neckline to bring about that chicness to your look.
