A Christian bride is an epitome of grace, elegance and poise in her exquisite white gown. She is the classic example of a diva from heaven. There is no prettier sight than watching a bride walk down the aisle- looking shy and confident at the same time. Every bride wants to look her best at her wedding and we get you the bride essentials that can make any bride look spectacular.


The Classic white Gown– Though many brides have done away with the classic white gown that is quintessential in Christian matrimony but there is no better attire a bride can wear that than the simple and elegant white gown. 

Minimalistic Jewelry- As they say less is more so efforts should be made to keep the look simple yet elegant. Wear minimal jewelry so that the actual beauty of the bride is seen and not hidden behind strings of necklaces and heavy earrings. Pearls or diamonds look glamorous yet classy with a gown so you could invest in a simple pair of earrings with a necklace.

Simple Makeup– The real beauty lies within. Remember this mantra and strive to look beautiful on your wedding without much makeup. A christian bride looks innately beautiful in a wedding attire and jewelry that very little needs to be done in the makeup department. Depending on the time of the wedding the makeup should be kept light, especially if you have an outdoor wedding.

Accessorize Right– Very often we forget to accessorize well as we are so caught up in getting the perfect gown and jewelry to match with it. But it is important to have the right type of accessories as well to complete the look. Get comfortable yet good looking heels for the wedding. Just remember that if it is an outdoor wedding than prefer to have smaller heels else you will be walking like a duck. Add a headpiece to the ensemble – a veil or a flower crown or a tiara. It gives the bride a delicate look. Keep a thin cover-up for the gown, especially if it is an outdoor wedding as you might get cold later into the night. You could get a matching shawl or bolero or a capelet jacket with some embellishments.

From when she is an adolescent, every bride dreams of the way she will look at her wedding day. Her picture encompasses her favorite diva dressed immaculately, looking ethereal and angelic. With these tips you will surely look like a beautiful bride you always dreamed of.

Unique Toasts- In most Christian weddings, the bridesmaids and the best man usually raise a toast to the newly married couple.

The best-man could do a jig with the groom, something that the two did while in college or school.

Novel Decor Ideas– Any venue can be made to look stunning if the decor is nice. So have unique ideas for decor, If need be hire a decorator who would be able to suggest something different. If you want, keep a theme for the wedding and have all the decor as per theme. If the bride and the groom like any famous cartoon character they can be used as props for the decor or keep a general colour scheme and doll up the place in those shades.

Surprise Element– Ask the bridesmaids and the grooms friends to plan a surprise element for the guests as well as the newly wed couple. It could be some fun games for everyone or a special dance performance or an act depicting the bride and the groom and how they met.

The idea is to think out-of-the-box so that the wedding is unique and remembered by one and all for times to come.

  • Offseason wedding: As part of Christian Matrimony, you can arrange the wedding in offseason rather than spend more in each band everything during the peak season. Instead of arranging a wedding during the winter, you can arrange it in summer if you have more relatives that want to enjoy the scorching sun and the heat rather than the nagging rain which can spoil the spirit beyond limits.
  • Bachelor party: Instead of going to a five-star hangout to enjoy the bachelor party with your friends, try to arrange it in the terrace and make it special by cooking the food on your own make it just like a picnic rather than a party. In this way, you will be able to add unique elements to your wedding without shelling out much money.
  • Using seasonal flowers: When it comes to Christian matrimony, it is incomplete without flowers but you may not have to buy the off season which can again take you off the budget. Flowers are beautiful no matter what the season is and you can try to create invigorating decorations without overdoing it.
  • Baking the cake: Instead of placing the order of the cake in one of the prominent city shops, try to showcase the idea of homemade cake which is prepared by a family member or some of your friends that can add extra zing to the wedding. It may not be the two-tier cake which you have witnessed in most of the weddings but a delicious homemade chocolate and vanilla cake in the shape of the wedding bells or heart and include the names of the bride and groom.
  • Favors are fussy: Do not create a fuss with favors rather try to make the wedding special by focusing on the rituals. If you are not aware, most of the wedding favors end in trash. You may prepare them at home such as small bags carrying a set of earrings for the girls and tie for men. Buying them during the season of the sale will help you get reasonable discounts.
  • Bridal makeup: The bride can always skip going to the parlor when friends and cousins do the job at home. Not only does it save money but you do not have to say no to all those girls and women that accompany the bride to the parlor.

Weddings are beautiful and the essence can be conveyed in a simple and elegant manner without worrying about arranging it in the least amount of cash. Arranging an extravagant wedding does not convey that you are special but you can make it special even without spending much money.
