3. Nude Makeup For Bride

This trend began in the late 2019s where the motto is “Less is More”. This has been adopted by a lot of brides for their wedding day instead of the heavy bridal makeup look. Natural look is what these brides want and so they are obsessing over this nude and minimalistic makeup look.

This look will also help your skin breathe with less products on it and not make your face feel heavy.

4. Outfit Changes for Bride and Groom

This year there will be some extra oomph to the outfits of bride and groom. For brides, traditional red lehengas or pastel shades are going to take a backseat this season. With fashion getting bolder, we could see statement sleeves, mesh (net) lehengas, neon colors and more. For grooms, there can be variations in the pattern and surely playing with some bold colors like green, pink, purple and so on. Printed kurtas could be a good style for grooms to add drama.

5. Healthy Menu

Everyone is nowadays either gluten free, dairy free, soy free, vegan and what not. So, accommodating at least one of these options to your menu would be a total win-win situation. Having a ‘Farm to Table’ menu is another way of including healthy food to your menu. Hire a farm to table caterers to help you out with this. This trend is going to add so much of experience and value for you and your guests to the wedding with so much beautiful memory since you have taken care of all the dietary restrictions of guests.

6. Weddings That Keep On Giving

We spend so much time as well as money in organizing these big extravaganza parties and weddings and forget that it is possible because we are fortunate enough to have all of it. For weddings, couples can ask their guests to donate as per their wish to a charitable trust that the couple has decided instead of spending money on buying the couple’s gift. Allow your guests to contribute to a charitable cause and you would feel so much better. 

We feel these trends that will rule this wedding season. Do you have any which you think we have missed out? Let us know in the comment section below.
