Bridal Trousseau Tips –Don’t Forget Add These Vital Things. Here are a few utilitarian, oft-ignored but very useful essentials – you must pack in your trousseau –
1. Comfy Shoes
Important Tip – Fashion and beauty are all great, but on your wedding day, when you may be standing for hours, comfort should feature high. Thus, with your pretty bridal lehenga or wedding saree or even for your reception’s shimmering party-wear sarees – pair comfortable footwear – something that blends comfort with haute style.
2. Great, Versatile Bags
Focus on quality, versatility and classiness. Too much funkiness or faddish styles won’t work for long. Also, always ensure the bags and accessories that you carry agree with your personal style and personality.
3. Night-Wear – For Comfort And For Style
Even if this means, you have to categorize in 2 different sub-sets. Sensuous, funky or divasque – is all great, because you know, you want to turn on your charms here. So, satin nighties, cute negligees, hot separates aka 50 Shades are all great – but may not be suitable for when you want a good night’s sleep. So, ensure that you invest in comfortable, cotton (or flannel, if you are going to be at a cold place) night-wear that lets you get your complete quota of beauty sleep.
4. Honeymoon Destination Appropriate Clothing
Including swimsuits, flip-flops, umbrella et al for a tropical holiday – and cardigans, woolens, jackets, flannel et al for a European sojourn – not to forget the airport carry-alongs.
Don’t go overboard on any one type of apparel, while planning the bridal trousseau. Keep a just mix – or pick ones that would suit the context (Turning up in a skimpy skater dress, when making a customary stop at a relative’s house (sadly in the same city as your honeymoon spot) won’t be a good idea! And, doing the same for a formal, sit-down, romantic dinner or even a big dinner banquet isn’t great either.)Pack along one or two formal ensembles too. Sarees or cocktail dresses are nice – but don’t go overboard. Avoid elaborate, traditional outfits, though trendy versions of those like chic palazzo suits or lehenga suits are perfect. If you plan to socialize with your or your spouse’s friends – keep the probable set-up in mind too – and pack a few outfits accordingly.
5. Smart And Practical Luggage
Whether you are travelling far or near, after marriage – or are not travelling at all – at the moment – include smart, good quality, easy-to-carry and utilitarian luggage in your trousseau. 1 mid-sized suitcase, 1 cabin-sized bag or stroller, 1 duffle-bag, a back-pack – include the minimum essentials.You can also add a big make-up/ vanity box, a cross-body documents/laptop bag and another suitcase.
6. Other Accessories
For myriad occasions – from stoles, shawls, wraps, fashion jewels, umbrellas, socks, mufflers, sneakers and the likes. They are small parts of your wardrobe – and the bigger picture – but they go a long way on helping you put together amazing looks, even when your outfits may be basic or limited in number.
Plus, you can’t expect to go out buying, let’s say, sneakers, when your spouse urges you to join him/ her to the gym – soon after the wedding.
7. Safety Pins, Tissues, Cotton-Balls, Hair Clips, Bobby Pins, Handkerchiefs And Those Little Knick
Knacks That Help You Keep Your Life Together.
There’s not much that needs to be said about these delightful essentials – small that they are (they may be inconspicuous when they are present) – they can wreak havoc, when they are absent.Plus, they are unlikely to be on your exotic shopping list at a honeymoon destination, right after your wedding – or, when you get up with mascara-smudged eyes, the morning after!
