Previously it was the mehendi, haldi, sangeet, and the shaadi, and the whole affair would be one hell of an event, filled with mirth and laughter. India has always placed great importance on the shaadi-vivah factor and if it is the wedding of the girl, then it is but obvious that everyone will go out of their ways to make the day memorable. A lot of things have changed now regarding the shaadi culture here, and one of the major changes that we see is this whole hue and cry over the pre-wedding photo shoot.
Pictures are an integral part of any occasion, and if that occasion is a wedding then we have to have a professional photographer. Weddings are all about dressing up and looking good and capturing the beautiful moments of the beautiful event. Taking the cue from our favourite Bollywood stars, many of us have started going for the pre-wedding photo shoot. The pre-wedding photo shoot encapsulates the love story of the bride and the groom. And if there is no conventional love story, that is, in case of an arranged marriage, it is just another day which is reserved especially for the bride and the groom, and also their close ones.
We all look up to the bride on the day of her wedding. How she looks resplendent in her attire has us gaping at her in wonder and amazement. It is the same on the day of her pre-wedding shoot. We are all hooked on to what she is wearing and how she is looking. The shutterbugs are after her and everybody else gives in their best efforts to make it a day worthy of remembrance. What gathers our attention the most is the outfit of the bride to be. While there is a lot of pressure and anxiety mixed with a lot of happiness for the upcoming wedding, the pre-wedding shoot cannot just go to waste and the bride to be, needs to look her best. After all, it is only after she feels great will she be able to reflect her happiness in front of the camera.
Here are some of the greatest outfit options for the bride to be on her pre-wedding shoot:
