Image Stunning, beautiful, daring and out-of-the-world, is what every bride desires to be on her D-day. And with modern day brides seeking experimentation in her wedding day look, it's no mean feat deciding on the all important colour palette for her trousseau.

While the traditional red has most definitely taken a backseat, we get our fashion pundits to share the new red for the bridal season. Oscillating from gentle emerald greens, rich burgundies, flashy yellows to finally a colourful peacock palette, accentuated with matching embellishments, desi brides can pick from an array of hues.

"Hot pink will be the hottest shade which looks elegant with silver work on it. Yellow also makes for a beautiful bridal outfit with multi-coloured thread work and booties all over in orange and aqua shades. A colour like white, which people would never wear on D-Day, is now coming into vogue with vibrant treatments to beautify the outfit," suggests Leena Singh of the designer duo Ashima-Leena.

Envisaging the shades of a modern bridal outfit, Leena elaborates, "A lehenga made on peacock base with aqua green and blue embroidery can be accentuated with mirror work and multi coloured thread work. To add to the look, some gold jewellery can make the right match."

Designer Ritu Kumar adds, "Burgundy is definitely the most predicted colour this season for its richness and antique appeal. Bright red is out, thus we don't do much of sequins and crystals. There is more of metallic embroidery these days, resembling a woven Banarasi sari."

Deviating from the conventional red and maroons, designer Kavita Bhartia feels brighter shades work well for a trousseau. "Emerald green can be the new red for the season as they are offbeat. Also, red can be combined with bright blue and earthier tones like browns, burgundy, and brick red for a striking combination."

Couturier Renu Tandon too prefers a soothing palette in shades of pink (indigo pink) and fuchsia (mix of dark pink and light midnight blue) this season. "These shades would come out well in a mermaid shaped lehenga with lighter shades merging into the darker tones with beautiful drapes on the waist and hips, embellished with gold ands silver work at the border. This can be teamed up with a crouched blouse highlighted with Swarovski."

For ceremonies, other than the main wedding day, vibrant shades like baby blue; lemon yellow, turquoise, pinks, mint green are the haute pick. "Variations of pinks can be worn on the other ceremonies. A combination of yellow-red or mustard-red can also be perfect. Olive nicely fits most themes, but being a dull shade, it has to be teamed up with brighter hues," feels Kavita.

Ritu adds, "Something in off white highlighted with deep red as well as shades of olive is making a mark. Mehendi green can be mixed with saffron and mustard on the outfit with minimal sequin work for the sangeet or Mehendi function."

Most brides are not only about getting dressed in typical a salwar kameez. Designer Leena says an Indo Western look is in vogue. "A free flowing crinkled skirt in mehendi green looks modern when teamed with a choli. It isn't too heavy and can be kept light with red booti work all over a florescent base."

For occasions like the engagement or reception, Renu shares, "Purple looks fabulous on these occasions. Brides don't prefer darker colours, so sophisticated shades are coming into limelight. A dress designed on mint green base can be ornamented with lime and emerald green thread work or Swarovski to complete the look."

With this riot of colours - here's to a play of senses and shades this auspicious season.
