1. Braids & Blooms:
Pretty braids are trending right now as they spell youthful exuberance and playful style. You can add fresh blooms or charming sprigs in different colors to ‘dress up’ your braid. Just make sure the flowers match the colors of your ensemble. Take a cue from Sonam Kapoor‘s ‘mehndi/sangeet’ look where her braid was adorned in with a floral garland in a criss-cross manner.

4. Beautiful Mess:
Meghan Markle who wed Prince Harry recently opted for a loose, messy bun at her royal wedding. This style allows you to leave your shoulders and back bare in case you want to show off some dramatic back jewellery or a bold backless blouse. To soften this look further, arrange a few loose strands around your face and neck. Even VJ Rochelle Rao who wed Keith Sequeira recently opted for a deliberately messy bun around which she wore a simple glittery band.

A traditional bun that sits at the nape of the bride’s neck never goes out of style especially when it is adorned with a beautiful garland of fragrant ‘mogra’ flowers. This style is perfect for brides who have long, thick hair and want to keep that weight off their back during hot, summer weddings. Check out actress Neha Dhupia‘s neat back bun adorned with a ‘gajra’ which she carried off comfortably at her recent daytime wedding.
