Summer Bride | Cocktail Look

By  |  6 Comments

This is the second post from the ‘Summer Bride’ series featuring Gaurav Gupta Official.

The Cocktail Look.

When it comes to all ceremonies and parties before the wedding, the Cocktail has to be one glamorous affair when people ditch their traditional outfits (at least most of them) and opt for fancy western outfits.

As for the bride-to-be, while during other ceremonies, she plays the coy & demure one, Cocktail party is when she can still be herself. That could also be because a Cocktail party is a close affair, you only have close friends and family and you just want to celebrate and party !

While the outfit of the bride-to-be is concerned, this is perfect time to try something bold or edgy or just different. Something that reflects the bride to be’s personality while also keeping up with celebratory vibe.  And of course she has to look her best.

This is the look I came up with for the same:












(Outfit Details: Outfit from Gaurav Gupta, Accessories from House of Shikha, Heels from Zara, Rolex Watch)

The Cocktail is the only time you can actually wear black as a bride-to-be and get away with and what better than like this. This Gaurav Gupta outfit is actually a two piece set, a top and a skirt. I like the dramatic peplum in the top and the details include golden, metallic, hand-embroidered net panel around neck and sheer net embroidered back.  The skirt has a lovely drape, a slit at one side and a trail to make it look more extravagant.

As for accessories, I kept it minimal, hand harness, an ear cuff and my watch. Side swept hair and oxblood lips to add to the evening glamour.

Hope you guys like this look !
