Bridal Dresses,Our Big Fat Desi weddings start from dholkies and go on till the post-Valima dawats. They are not only full of colors, flavors, and conventional relatives, but are filled with the massive hype of who-is-wearing-what . From venue to menu, guest lists to decorations nothing seems to be more important than what to wear and how to steal the spotlight! And the most pressure exerted by this whole’what to wear’ campaign is on none other than the bride herself.
While everyone looks forward to stealing the show, nothing compares to the bride-to-be’s excitement of finally saying ‘I do’ in a bridal dress that makes a statement catching everyone’s attention. And in all honesty, why shouldn’t she be a little over excited? It’s a once in a lifetime moment and this is HER day, she has every right to look like she just walked out of a dream.

The Regal and Timeless bride
If you want to stun everyone with the timeless, regal bridal look, then it wouldn’t be hard for you to find the perfect lehngha for your big day. Probably the most mastered type and the specialty of every Pakistani Designer is this kind of couture.For the bride who wants to turn her bridal dress into a memory worth and actually costing a million bucks, opt for a veteran designer. Nothing screams royalty and brilliance louder than Bunto Kazmi’s magnificent designs. Luxe, voluminous ghararas, and lehengas, exhibiting the legendary style of a queen from the Mughal and Rajput-era!
and yes, this look should be reserved only for Barat, and no other function. *unless you want your wedding to look staged like a Bollywood film or something.
The Classy and Elegant bride
While the classic and traditional styles add in a bold royal touch to your appearance, this modern couture is fresh and includes rather subtle work in the bridal dresses. If you want your wedding dress to exude a persona that has class and elegance, attention to detail with that fairytale touch, there are a number of designers you can choose from. Normally, such dresses are paired up with light color combination, such as silver, peach, so that the focus is more on the Jewellery (preferably diamonds) and the glowing Bride.
So, for a chic Valima , you can totally opt for this look or just visit designers like HSY, Deepak Parwani , Elan, Sana Safinaz, Maria B and many more. Or just discuss with your own designer to go EASY on the bridal dress.
The Contemporary and Chic bride
And Then there are those who are totally opposite the conventional styles, and like to play with colors and sleek cuts while keeping the traditional feel alive. Fret not, our fashion industry is talented and sure knows how to cater to each and every client’s need and demands.
For people like me, who feel suffocated by all the kam wala jora, the heavy jewelry and the hundred pound weight of the wedding dress itself, my advice would be to go for a lighter bridal dress and stronger bridal makeup/ hair. The rest of the look will pop by the beautiful BOLD Jewelry.
The Bright, Bold and Beautiful bride
Bright, bold and loud defines the Mehndi look for you Brides !
and yes this isn’t every bride’s cup of tea since it takes real talent to pull something that is out of the ordinary. If you’re looking for elaborate embroidery, statement making cuts and that burst of color, then you have Rang Ja, Ali Xeeshan and Nomi Ansari to take inspiration from.
They don’t only dominate the lawn world but they dominate the bridal world too. They offer you some of the best wedding dresses for your big day. Contemporary, modern work combined with classical combinations is what their collection is all about. That is why those brides who want to experiment with their bridal looks, you should certainly give Sana Safinaz a shot. The only con to their whole collection are the filthy heavy price tags *after all its Sana Safinaz*and that the designs also seem repetitive, but hey! All Bridal Collections look the same at a swift glance.
This bridal dress search is a tiresome task especially when it comes to checking out all these designers, but at the end , the main aim of all these designers is to make the brides look ravishing. While these are certainly not the only designers left in Pakistan, many more designers also have some delicious stuff for you brides to be, and then again nothing beats the old “make it yourself” attitude.
At the end of the day, it is ultimately the bride-to-be’s choice of what she wants to do ; buy a designer dress or get it done by others. But one should always refer to the buzzing designs getting all the attention. If you take a look at prices of bridal dresses, you will see that they are a bit costly as compared to wedding outfits available in the local market. But they really offer value for your bucks. Brides ! it is time to get your couture game on.
