4. Bridal Gold Jewelry
Heavy colorful stone, jadau and kundan jewelry is no longer in vogue this year. Gold is again back in bridal fashion and this time it is here to STAY. Intricate gold ornaments make the bride look extremely elegant by adding a subtle radiance to her actual beauty. Moreover, it goes perfectly well with all sorts of bridal outfits, irrespective of shades, designs and patterns.
5. Bridal Motif Jewelry
Apart from gold, wedding jewelry with beautiful traditional motifs has also been a big hit in 2015. Peacock, being a representation of splendor and classiness, is all the rage among Indian brides. The motifs of pearls or diamonds or even their combination have also gained much popularity due to delicate yet dazzling appearances.
6. Bridal Hair Accessories
Like all other years, 2015 has also been seeing the majestic presence of the classic hair accessories in wedding fashion. But this time, this royal head jewelry is given a slight new twist to separate it from the festive style. From traditional gold mang tikas to motif design matha pattis, everything is going to be classed up this season for gleaming bridal looks.
7. Nose Ring
If there is one bridal trend that never goes out of fashion, it is the nose ring or nath. And this year, huge gold naths with simple ethnic look or amazing detailing are what catching the attention of brides. Go for amazing decoratios, such as kundan, colorful stones, pearls, beads or meenakari work. Also remember, ‘the bigger the better’ is the rule.

8. Bridal Makeup
Fresh and natural is what this year’s bridal makeup is all about. Forget that highly painted ‘plaster’ look. Only a primer that is nude or even one shade darker than your actual skin tone and a subtle yet glorious blend of blush will help you outshine others on your big day. You may go for bold eyes and sensual pout to complement your bright flawless bridal look perfectly.

Walking down the aisle with a huge flower wrapped bun or wearing a long pretty braid with even prettier gold hair gear, gorgeous South Indian looks have become the latest trends in bridal hairstyle. More and more women are opting for a good mash-up of north Indian apparels and south Indian hairstyles to come up with an exclusive look on their big days.
10. Bridal Mehndi
Bridal mehndi designs have evolved a lot throughout India and the present year is seeing more and more of the ‘tikya’ design. Instead of being simple and casual, those round floral patterns of henna give a true feminine touch to the entire bridal outfit. Amazing, no?
11. Bridal Footwear
2015 bridal footwear trend is balancing out both stylish flats and fashionable heels equally. If you prefer heels, go for striking golden or silver peep-toes that comes with amazing decorations and perfect fit. And if you are not a heel-person, find a pair of strappy flats with unique embellishments.
12. Dhoti Salwar
Finally, here is something for brides who want to think out-of-box for their ‘mehendi’ or ‘sangeet’ ceremony. Yes, dhoti salwar is absolutely the thing you should watch out for this wedding season. Team it up with a highly embellished kurta or a simple one layered with a Nehru jacket. You’ll look amazingly chic yet, somehow, classic.
