As more modern brides opt for more subtle hues for their big day, one can’t help but wonder if
traditional wedding dress colours have lost their allure. There was a time where a Pakistani
wedding would be considered incomplete without the reds and yellows, and rightfully so.
Traditional wedding colours are undeniably beautiful. Aside from the symbolic significance of the colour red for the baraat, there appears to be something entirely magical when a bride wears yellow on her mehndi night or day. As a result, they are a timeless option that will only add to the glamour and grandeur of a bride’s special day.
Let’s face it: after the groom, it’s the bride’s entourage that gets the most attention. It is only fair that the bride passes on these magical colours to her bridal party. All the brides out there, sit back for a moment and imagine: a crisp winter afternoon, the stage is set, and you walk with
your bridesmaids, looking luminous in your yellow attire. It’s a sight right out of a big production movie. The colour yellow symbolises warmth, radiance, and celebrations, making it the ideal colour choice for the upcoming winter wedding season.
Trends suggest that one of the main reasons why brides have been shying away from the colour yellow as they fear it may be the obvious choice for their wedding. To that, we say it’s all about choosing the right tones of the color. For example, if you have a day event planned, opt for lighter or pastel hues of yellow, like a meringue lemon. Alternatively, a night event allows you to experiment with the traditional yellows, such as mustard or perhaps even a marigold. In
addition, yellow is one of those colours that compliments every skin tone, pairs perfectly with
any other color be it magenta or green, and is one of the easiest colours to accessorise as well.
Keeping in mind all the alluring factors of the color, we at Ayesha Shoaib Malik bring you two of the most desirable yellow outfits of the wedding season. Our festive collection, Carnation, offers beautiful signature pieces that feature a delicately embroidered yellow net sharara and a
handcrafted organza shirt that embodies the essence of old world charm. This dress will
enhance the beauty of any bride and ensure that she stands out at her mehndi. It can also be
the ideal ensemble for a bridesmaid looking to compliment the blushing bride.
This second article is an ensemble that we are particularly excited about. A heavily mirrored
embellished raw silk jumpsuit is set to capture the attention of all the wedding guests. From
head to toe this article is an ideal outfit for a bridesmaid who wishes to wear a unique cut at her best friend’s wedding. Or perhaps even a bride who wants to switch into party mode after the traditional festivities. And although it may be yellow, it’s anything but an obvious choice.
