Our Guide to Curating Your Wedding Trousseau.
If you are a soon to-be-Bride, you probably are feeling the wedding frenzy kicking in! Even the most modern wedding has rituals and traditions attached to it – and assembling a bridal trousseau to start off a married life is one of our favourites. However, remembering all the things a bride-to-be needs for the wedding, the honeymoon and the new home can get a little nutsy.
While B-town celebs never fail to set new fashion trends, forge unique style statements and outfit inspiration – but sustainability has become a concern, and it’s only reasonable to invest in timeless basics and sensible purchases. Here are some statement-making pieces that you can add to your repertoire and are Downright gorgeous!

STYLE TIP: Accessorizing it with detailed jhumkas, chandbalis, statement jewellery and handbag is the key to ace the look.
