Publish Date:Jan 19, 2013


Your Big Day isn’t just about you and him – it’s special for your parents as well. For them it is one of the most awaited and happiest occasions of their life. It is your duty to make it big and special for them as well and here are a few dressing ideas for your mother who surely deserves a special treat! 

1. Choosing the right dress and colour 
Go for a saree in bright shades with traditional zardozi, meena, lumpi work. Outlining with pearl or Swarovski will make it appropriately chic. Deep shades will make her look dated while nudist hues will give her a cougar appeal which is undesirable. Georgette and Khaddi fabrics with velvet partition will enhance her overall personality.
2. Jewellery options
 As per jewellery, keep it balanced. With heavy necklaces, go for studded earrings. With diamond pendants, matching earrings in the same pattern are a must. Jadau jewellery looks slightly dated, so instead of it, you can go for antique gold jewellery which is always in vogue during the winter weddings.Kada type bangles add a regal grace and are easier to manage than an arm full of bangles.
3. Stylish yet comfortable footwear
 Since a lot of moving around and standing is involved during wedding and reception, many brides opt for shoes that are comfortable as well as stylish. Same applies for your mother too and therefore get her a nice pair of sandals with wedged or low heels that match with her saree. Pedicure makes all the difference for nice feet and therefore you must make sure that your mother does get that done
4. Accessorize well 
A stylish clutch that matches with her saree is a must. You just cannot miss out on this. Potli shaped bags are also in vogue so make it a point that your mom carries one of them.
5. Graceful hairstyle
 Hairstyle should be simple yet artistic, as befitting her face and age. Do not insist upon intricate hairdo where curls keep slipping from the chignon. This might appear little untidy. If at all the idea is to soften the appearance with a couple of tendrils, ask the stylist to do so while maintaining your mother’s overall grace.
