The pastel panache has taken us all by a frenzy. And we couldn’t agree more. The Gen Z peeps are all about looking beyond the mainstream. Gone are the days when donning light hues for brides were a complete no-no. The big fat Indian weddings now seem to be going in for subtle and sublime colour schemes. Pastels all the way!

They’ve become the epitome of romantic in more ways than one. From your invites to your favours, here are 5 details you absolutely cannot miss while fixing up your wedding itinerary for the best wedding planning.

1. Nail that Invite right!

Whether you’re going for an e-invite or a physical invite, go for minimalistic yet graceful colours: mint green, peach, blush pink and the likes are our favourites when it comes to invites. Add a pop of metallic detailing to accentuate and add a royale look to the invitations.

 

 

2. Pastel in your ensemble!

From the little charms hanging in your ballerinas to your bold embellishments on the wedding attire, go all out on pastels because you just can’t overdo with it. Spill your fairy-tale romance in blush tones and stunning hues of soft pinks, greens, blues, and purples for an enchanting bridal look.

 

3. Cutesy DIY wedding favours

From the bridesmaid kit to the room hampers, aligning everything to the pastel theme might sound like a task but we tell you, it’s not. Just make sure you settle for favours you would want to use. DIY the packaging using little flowers and pastel sheets to give it a personalized touch and you are sorted.

 

 

4. The ever-so-gorgeous cakes and garlands cannot be missed

Do it for the camera, we say! These two being the highlight on the stage and the latter on you, you wouldn’t wanna go wrong with these. Mind the colours though, as it shouldn’t get camouflaged with neither your attire nor the stage decor.

 

5. The dainty decor, of course!

Pastel drapes, the lights, the charms, the flowers make up for that whimsical wonderland setting where you’ve always dreamt of taking your vows. The ruffled tissue and soft chiffons in pastels springs up the entire place. The lush carnations, lilies, mogra, hydrangeas, the glamorous gold details and the bewitching colossal chandeliers are sure to light up the space just the way you want it.

 

 

Aren’t we all in awe of these photographs? Yes, pastels have been dominating the Indian wedding space for quite some time now and we’re drooling over it. So now that we’ve already set the mood board for your wedding we’d like to say- Think Pastel! And your sail from there onwards is as easy as this read.

When it comes to your wedding makeup, you want to make sure you look flawless and avoid any and all make up mistakes. We’d like to share some of the most common makeup mistakes that most  brides make. Give a quick read and make sure you’re not making any.

Always do your research before trying in a new look. Go through different pictures of women who have similar features or hair color so you can visualize how you would look like. Below are the most common mistakes that brides to be and newlywed brides make.

1. Selecting the wrong foundation shade

One of the biggest makeup mistakes that women often make is choosing a foundation that doesn’t go with their skin color. And this happens because most of them try the product on their hands while making the purchase, whereas it should be tested on the jawline.

2. Use of too many eye shadow colors

Who said you’ve got to deck up your eyelids with too many colors just because you are the newlywed bride? At max, you should use three subtle colors at a time-lighter shade on your brow bone, medium one on your lids and a darker one on the outer corner of your eye and make sure to blend them well.

 

 

3. Not preparing your lips before applying lipstick

The reason why you always end up eating your lipstick or why it doesn’t stay for too long is that you don’t prepare your lips before applying a lipstick. So, always make it a point that you prep your lips with a nourishing lip balm and let it absorb.

 

 

4. Puffing your face with too much powder

After you have applied your foundation, it is important to apply some loose powder to set your makeup right (especially if you have oily skin). But overdoing the powder is not good, as it will only make your face appear too cakey and white.

 

5. Applying foundation only on your face

Don’t apply foundation just to the face. Spread it all the way down your jawbone and cover the neck area as well. Otherwise, your neck and face are likely to give an uneven look. It looks awful when the color of your face is all even and doesn’t match the color of your neck.
