Seasonal Color Guide For Wedding Lehenga
November – February: Mesmerising Winter
The winter months are attributed to dullness and laziness. One only wishes to cuddle up in their blanket all the time and never move. Therefore, to please the eyes in such a season the colors need to be sharp, dark and clear. Go BOLD! open up your winter palate to colors like steel blue, icy cobalt, hot pink, strawberry pink, fuchsia, ruby red, and emerald green. What to avoid: pastels, light colors, gold, orange or beige. If your wedding is in the winter months, it is your time to experiment with the winter colors and turn those heads around.
March and April: Lovely Lively Spring
Spring means blossoming flowers, popping colors everywhere and a new energy in the air. To equalise with that freshness in the air, if you are marrying in these two months of spring you have a wide range of colors to try on! Transition into the month of warmness with warm and comforting tones like an uplifting camel, magical corals, luscious limes, sun-kissed goldens and pleasing peaches. Avoid wearing dark and sharp shades if you want the picture perfect outfit.
May- July: Rejuvenating Summer
Honestly, these are my PASTELS. To preserve the coolness in summer the perfect shades, therefore, become the delightful brightness. Summer makes everyone happy and chirpy, doesn’t it? The power of the sun makes the days longer and illuminates us with our favourite hues, they are so much fun and bring so much energy even in its subtle undertone. So in this season, go with lusty lavender, delicate pink, misty mint, mauve, baby blue, light lime and teal. Pair colors together and experiment with some lightness and funkiness. What to avoid: Dark colors, monotonous gloomy blues. (Insider: I would personally go with lavender, it's such a gorgeous fresh shade! Totally breathtaking)
