Traditions are loved and treasured but sometimes they become a tad bit too much to follow. It is the human desire for change which drives them to look for alternate substitutes. Nevertheless change is welcomed; it brings a fresh breath.
With the wedding season in tow, brides to be are looking around for unique designs and colour tones- something extraordinary which should speak volumes about them. The wedding functions will always be traditional because that is an irreversible tradition set since aeons, but the dress, makeup and jewellery can be altered in style to suit the bride’s ideas. Thus the idea floating around is: brides are looking for a fresh new change.
Surprisingly, this idea has picked up and designers are now coming up with elaborate contemporary designs for the bridal wear- well many will frown, but with the growing demand and liking, someone has to fill in the gap. And it is not like, the dresses are extremely western, on the contrary western designs and cuts are incorporated in the traditional dresses, giving birth to a completely new line.
Similarly bridal makeups have moved from the heavy bold to the rather subtle and radiant tones. The shift is brought about by a deeper understanding of makeup techniques which are now being applied here in Pakistan. The main days for the bride are the wedding and reception- makeup on both the days has to be flawless. Even the slightest hitch in makeup can ruin a bride’s dream wedding and no one would want to be the reason for that hitch.
