Bedecked In Wedding Fabrics



By Editorial Desk

It’s not just about picking the right fabrics that will make the dress appear grand and unique. How it sits and shapes your body, how it breathes, how it feels, how it holds throughout the night – all things need to be considered. So where do you start?

What slips into the mind when you hear the word ‘wedding’? A fun celebration filled with people decked up in their finest, revelling the holy union. Style plays an important role in our social gatherings in conveying a variety of emotions, with a hint of personal imagery – hence, the term ‘flaunting your style.’ Since, a wedding is a fairly personal and integral event; one can illuminate the significance through the apparel he or she dons, leading to a great focus around wedding apparel. Even the fabric needs to tell a story worth millions and to support that, here are a few best fabrics that every wedding designer swears by:

Banarasi Silk and Brocade

Banarasi Silk has always been a wedding staple forever, enamouring grandmothersand granddaughters alike with its opulence. Sourced from the mystic regions of Banaras, this fabric is interspersedwith luxurious motifs; intricately woven florals, foliate and figurine designsthat depict vibrancy and life. Its iconic,extravagant sheen makes it the perfect choice for all kinds of wedding occasions.While Banarasi Sarees continue to be the classic heart warmer, yet demand for a more contemporary touch has elevated its desirability.
 


Starting from Banarasi gowns, trench coats, jackets, peplum tops, pants and crop tops for women and sherwani and Nehru jackets for men, a modern-day spin to this fabric does great justice. Be it thepious Mehndi, playful Sangeet or taking the vows to your wedding, you can play with how the fabric is imagined, choosing from a riot of colours like Teal, Orange, Red, Beige, Fuchsia, Green and Navy Blue.

Velvet

Another growing wedding favourite, this high-quality tightly woven fabric is love, due to its effervescent versatility. One can never go wrong with embroidered velvet in vintage floral design as it oozes regality.And if embroidery is not the kind of tone one wants to set, solid Velvets in shades of black, blue, green, red, go great with edgy embellishments of dabkapatch work, zardozi or stonework. Floor length gowns, crop tops and skirts, lehengas, for girls and Indo-Western Sherwani and Jodhpuri Coats for men are some cues on how velvet could be incorporated in your wedding outfit. This material would certainly weaveits magic on the Wedding or Reception.
 


Chanderi Silk

A light and sheer fabric, fetched from the fabled Chanderi town of Madhya Pradesh; this category of silk works wonders on who wears it, in designs like florals, abstracts, Mughal prints and golden zari borders. The beauty of Chanderi Silk lies in its expanse of colour palette- from luminouspastels like pearl white, beige, to lively tones of blue, orange, yellow and green. This fabric is a perfect pick for trousseau or the Chudha or Haldi Ceremony, with outfits ranging from straight kurta with pants, dupattas, crop tops, high-low kurtis, shararas for women and kurtas for men.

Mashru and Modal Silk

Crafted from a combination of a few cotton but majorly silk yarns, Mashru is the perfect amalgamation of comfort and elegance, getting its silky look on the outside yet a comfy cotton feel on the inside. Modal Silk, on the other hand,is a lustrous and a heavy fabric, blessed with a great fall! This makes these silks ideal for designing outfits like floor-length anarkalis, skirts, crop tops, indo-western gowns, straight cut suits, dhoti pants and kurtas and stoles for men. A winter colour palette is advised, from black, navy blue, pine green, wine red, umber, beige and grey, making them a hit on Mehndi or Cocktail function.
