When it comes to the traditional weddings for Kerala Hindu brides, they more often end up wearing sarees and stick to traditional hues and palettes. Here, we bring to you the best of traditional and modern looks to seek inspiration for your Kerala Hindu bridal look.
As south Indian weddings are usually a morning affair, the colour palette that the brides stick to are bright and summer hues. The seasons too are a big factor contributing to the ever-changing colour scheme. The six-yard drapes of luxury, the delicately plaited hair and subtle Kerala bridal makeup all come to define the Kerala Hindu bride, so read on to seek some inspiration for your bridal look.
1. The traditional Kerala saree
First off, we totally love it when the bridesmaids all together dress up in a single theme or colour for an event. It’s just an adorable touch apart from making for the perfect photo ops. Set between the sunshine yellow Indian bridesmaid dresses, the Kerala Hindu bride is all dressed up in a quintessential saree to the tradition here.
This white saree paired with a parrot green blouse design is a simple and elegant choice for brides who want to pay tribute to the age-old traditions, families have been a part of ages while also embracing simplicity. The bride accessorised it with a delicate saree belt, layers of lustrous gold and pretty choker. We also love the fresh flowers in her hair.
2. Red for the win!
The south Indian version of a classic red saree bride, this Kerala Hindu bride look is the perfect choice for the brides who want to reinvent and reinstate the classic red for its elegant and inherent royal vibes.
This red and gold lustrous saree is quite regal and looks perfect paired with the 3/4th sleeve blouse. The bride paired it with some dainty and delicate pieces of jewellery to let her outfit do all the speaking.
A big part of the Kerala Hindu bride look are the hair accessories that these brides use. This bride’s plait is well-complemented with her Poola Jada made from rose petals and temple jewellery embellishments. All these little details look so good!
3. A modern look
Unlike the usual Kerala Hindu bride palette of bright sarees, this bride chose a pastel pink saree which features such delicate details, that we are in complete awe.
Starting right from the subtle colour to the brocade material and the embellished borders everything works so seamlessly together without overpowering one another. We especially love the work on the net blouse with crystal and Zardosi work.
The bride then well complimented the outfit with platinum jewellery against the traditional gold. The maang tikka and delicate saree belt with shining diamonds just stand out as essential pieces in the look. Moving on, the bride’s hairstyle has flowers of the same hue with platinum embellishments giving it the finishing touch. We would not change a thing about this bride’s Kerala Hindu bridal look.
4. Bright and happy!
Everything about this Kerala Hindu bride look is just stunning and so fresh in terms of the colour combination, the blouse design and the accessories. We love it all. Starting with the traditional Pattu saree set in modern colours, the saree features pink, blue and mustard in a beautiful weave.
The bride then paired this with a teal coloured blouse which had intricate gold embroidery with touches of pink. The highlight of this blouse has to be the back with a deep oval cutout while the edges have full work all around it adding to its grandeur.
Her thick braid with gold embellishments is an ode to the traditional Kerala hairstyles but along with the outfit, it is just an added element that makes everything look even better! She finished the outfit with temple jewellery which is again a traditional choice for the Kerala Hindu bride look.
Everything that adds to a Kerala Hindu bride look is a special element which is individually too intricate and symbolic of their traditions from their bright coloured sarees to a delicate piece of jewellery all these together make for the perfect Kerala Hindu bride and for the perfect look you cannot discount a single element.
It is all about royalty, colours and beauty with this quintessential pieces of traditional fashion. Whether you are a sucker for traditions or prefer something modern you should always let your bridal outfit be a reflection of your personal style and more importantly comfort, so have fun planning your look!
