Nude Shades Rule Wedding Wear this Season


New ‘nude’ winds of change are blowing through the Indian bridal fashion scene this spring-summer. With international catwalks reflecting a more neutral vibe, and with the Indian summer promising to shine hot and bright, modern brides are opting for nude shades for their wedding-wear.

It makes sense in many ways! Beige, off-white, caramel, soft pecan and butterscotch are wonderfully cooling colours when the temperatures soar. Many weddings are stretched over many days and nights; and so it becomes imperative for brides to select a colour palette that is varied and yet sophisticated.

This is where nudes fit in well. Perfect for a daytime wedding ceremony, mehendi or sangeet, nudes also flatter most Indian skin tones perfectly, highlighting your face and charming smile on the day it matters most.

They are also unconventional, modern hues, and extremely versatile for women of all ages. Whether you’re from the host family or a guest, nude shades offset the brighter reds, blues, greens and pinks of regular occasion-wear and help you stand out at an Indian wedding.


That is why Sue Mue’s spring-summer 2018 couture collection Shades of Spring has a wide range of nude options for summer brides and their friends and family.

With floral motifs and cherry blossom-inspired designs, it features a balance of exquisite zari, sequins, aari, gota, metal, dabka and self-detailed work, with the soothing effect of pastel threads.


Sheer, sensual fabrics such as organza, georgette and tulle endow a soft elegance on the collection’s lehengas, kalidar kurtas, anarkalis with shararas, and graceful saris. Nude shades of beige and off-white cast an ethereal glow.

This is definitely the shade of the season for the contemporary bride.
