It’s Mothers Day! So we decided to think about mothers and their look for their son or daughter’s wedding! Wedding planning can get very stressful for the mother of the bride. Keeping track of the to do list, shopping, managing the home and off-course dealing with the emotions that daughters usually face during this phase can drain out the energy and leave them with little or no time to plan their own look. Treat your mother to a wonderful planning experience which she will always cherish. Here are some ideas on how to make sure your mother looks absolutely gorgeous on your wedding day!
With all the stress associated with weddings, the first thing to do will be to plan timely pampering sessions to allow your mother to unwind. You can schedule various treatments and pair them with your own so that this way you can also spend some time together before the wedding.
Make up is something which is very crucial as a lot of mothers do not wear make up regularly. A glowing skin always looks better than heavy cakey make-up. A soft and pretty look will always look elegant and as compared to shimmer or loud make-up. We love the makeup and the glow on Bipasha Basu’s mother’s face when she walked the ramp for the first time; so simple yet so stunning!
There are various ways to do up her hair rather than going with the usual bun. Blow dried hair with basic styling is always a safe bet. Other options could include a half up-do or a classic braid. Shabana Azmi looked very elegant with her braided hair when she showcased Ritu Kumar’s Falaknuma collection so did Sharmila Tagore. A simple blow dry also looked quite stunning like in the case of Hema Malini.
Choosing the apt outfit may be a difficult task. Most mothers of Indian brides opt for sarees. There are plenty of options to choose from for the mother of the bride. With designers creating elegant lehengas, salwars, kaftans and lots more the choices are plenty. We suggest, don’t dress according to trends but rather go with what suits your body type. Whatever you choose, make sure it’s comfortable. Sharmila moved away from the usual saree and sported a very different look while she took to the ramp for the Delhi couture week this year. We also loved Sushmita’s outfit at the grand finale of India’s first kids fashion week. Mothers could explore with options like these.
Accessories are the most important part of the look. Wearing a piece of luxe jewellery is recommended. Like for example a vintage kada or heavy chandelier earrings paired with a simple neck piece. A fancy clutch can also spice up the look.
And now, since its Mothers Day today, here are some gift ideas to treat your mum to a perfect mother’s day. How about a priceless piece of jewellery? Anmol jewelers has the most amazing designs and this will surely be a gift your mother would cherish!
Other option could include a lovely Sabyasachi signature saree. Sabyasachi’s timeless collection is something your mother would love.
Another interesting and offbeat gift would be an experience voucher from Witty Gifts. We just tried them out last week and loved it! The whole idea is to gift an experience rather than just a physical gift when you choose to gift their indulgence gift boxes. In the Witty Gift box is a booklet of services all over India that you can choose from. We chose the Spa Foot Reflexology! Bliss!
Whatever you do, make sure your mother is happy and comfortable, that is THE most important thing! Happy Mothers Day to all the lovely mothers out there!
