So similarly the bride has a lot of things to wear in her wedding and as well take with her to her new home.

It takes a lot of time to carefully select the list of the wedding trousseau taking into consideration all the ceremonies and occasions taking place before, during and after the wedding. In this way a trousseau becomes usually extensive and expensive and more beautiful as well.
The wedding trousseau should consist of all sorts of things a woman needs during the wedding. It must consist of quite a large number of saris of a variety of bright as well as sober colors and designs. These are selected from the latest fashion trends in the market and so look pretty fashionable. Saris are also bought based on the future use of the bride, like saris for regular wear, party wear, saris for festivals and other religious occasions. These are paired with matching and fashionable blouses with the latest cuts and matching underskirts as well. There will be designer saris and lehengas for the different ceremonies like the sangeet and mehendi.
The most important part of the wedding trousseau is the beautiful and magnificent wedding dress of the bride. It is usually maroon or red in color but now the new trend include purple, pink and blue as well. The wedding dress should be such that the bride looks the most beautiful on her wedding day and stands out in the crowd. She deserves to look stunning and ravishing on one of the most important days of her life. The wedding dress should be complimented with heavy jewelry which looks stunningly beautiful in such an auspicious occasion. The jewelry includes heavy necklaces of gold or diamond, bangles, anklets, heavy earrings, nose rings, mang-tikkas and rings. The jewelry should match the wedding dress as well as the different dresses which are to be worn on the various occasions and ceremonies.
