1.Private and exotic destinations:

2.Simple mangalsutras are here to stay:
Gone are the days when the humble mangalsutra stuck out like a sore thumb on a fashionable wedding gown or a gorgeous lehenga. Mangalsutras in 2019 are all set to get simpler, after Bollywood’s Sonam Kapoor wore hers as a bracelet while others wore it with couture gowns.
3.Personalization of wedding gowns:
Actress Priyanka Chopra’s wedding to singer Nick Jonas grabbed eyeballs and hit the headlines for a lot of reasons, but the most noteworthy of which were her attire! Her Ralph Lauren gown had Jonas’ mother’s wedding gown sewn into it, along with eight phrases embroidered on to it, including the groom’s name, her parents’ names and the wedding date. Her Sabyasachi lehenga had Jonas’ name and her parents’ sown into the waistband in Hindi. Personalization and customization of wedding gowns and lehengas, especially those by celebrity designers, will be expensive but affordable with marriage loans available on Finserv MARKETS. Marriage loan eligibility benchmarks are set low too, so as long as you are a salaried employee between the ages of 23 to 58, you are eligible for a loan to celebrate your wedding as lavishly as you have dreamt of since childhood.
4.Colour and fashion for grooms:
While for years, women’s fashion has evolved rapidly and wedding costumes have changed form extensively, men’s fashion has mostly been at a standstill especially with regard to wedding clothing. All of that changed with Bollywood actor Ranveer Singh’s wedding to fellow actress Deepika Padukone. His attire for his wedding included a Manish Arora bandhgala in signature neon hues, which even featured a cat accessory on his shoulder. 2019 is expected to see a rise in Anarkali kurtas, form-fitted sherwanis and colourful bandhgalas, elevating men’s wedding fashions to unexplored heights.
5.New, unique designers set to achieve greater popularity:
Post the spate of weddings in 2018, new designers on the block are poised to grow in popularity owing to more unique designs which are being displayed more creatively than ever, than older and more established designers who have already made a name in the wedding fashion industry. Bollywood actress Sonam Kapoor chose to adorn an Anuradha Vakil lehenga for her wedding, after giving a miss to the usual names on the circuit and everybody was pleasantly surprised by the unusual design. This trend is expected to grow, as more designers crop up with unusual and unique lehenga designs.
