One of the hottest trends today, pre-wedding shoots are a great way to create personal memories while you wait for your special day.

Some couples like to reenact the proposal, others like to create candid moments of everyday joy.

It is important to choose a timeless and beautiful wardrobe.

Wedding curators Aaradhana and Prateek Kashyap suggest some bridal outfit ideas for your pre-wedding photo shoot.

Use darker shades if your body type is endomorph, as it elongates your figure in front of the camera. Make sure the length of your clothes doesn’t interfere with walking or appear awkward on videos. Don’t forget the accessories – the right shoes, the right clutch and the right jewelry count.

There is nothing more timeless than a saree in an Indian woman’s wardrobe.

Make sure the saree is perfectly draped so that it looks primitive and appropriate in the shots.

The right makeup and hairstyle to match your saree can make all the difference in how you look in your photos.

Discuss the material and the shade to find out what works best for you.

Semi-Classic (Traditional)

Nothing screams “traditional” more than the humble salwar kurta and Achkan pyjamas.

There are many different styles for women and men.

Choose a style that reflects your personality.

If you have a video shoot, avoid intricate patterns as they always come out jagged and unclear on the video.

Solid colors always enhance your complexion, both in photos and videos.

Brides look beautiful and majestic in anarkalis, especially for photographs where you can twirl around.

However, if you are shorter, flared bottoms are not ideal. If you always choose an anarkali, choose a solid color and take it easy.

Consult your photographers for suggestions.

Avoid shimmering materials, as they reflect off the camera sensors and the correct color will not be displayed.

Matching with your future as one of the suits for your pre-wedding photoshoot is a common but cute idea.

The easiest way to do this is to go with smart casuals.

Try the white t-shirt and blue denim look with aviators, for a chic and timeless look.

Some couples also choose to create personalized T-shirts with witty messages or jokes inside.

Recreate an iconic look from your favorite movie scene with a party dress or a little black dress, complete with your man in a tuxedo.

This works best if one of your shoots takes place indoors and is well lit, suggesting the ambiance of an evening dinner party.

You can also choose other colors if black is not your first choice.
