A typical wedding trousseau includes accessories, clothing, makeup, jewellery, and the likes.
Every bride’s dream is to build an all-inclusive yet a special wedding trousseau she is very proud of. A wedding trousseau normally includes all the clothes every newly wedding woman would need in common, from everyday items to dresses she would wear at festive or special occasions. Here’s a rundown for the items that would make an ideal wedding trousseau
Atypical collection of sarees
To add a traditional touch to your wardrobe, you must include the following: Kanjeevaram or Banarasi Silk Saree, Chanderi Saree, Paithani Saree, Gota Patti Saree, Lace Saree, Printed Satin Saree, Sequin Work Saree, and Hand-Embroidered Saree. All of these are a must-have as these fabrics are not only versatile in fashion but also will go with every season change.
Rich embroidered suits
From casual suits to heavily embroidered ones, a bride cannot get enough of this Indian outfit which is suitable for all the after-wedding dinners and parties she’s expected to attend. Let’s begin with an additional breakdown – for cocktail dinners or evening parties, add 2-3 anarkalis to your collection; for evenings where guests are coming over, take 2-3 sharara-suit sets or embroidered suits, and for visiting friends, keep 5-6 Kurtis to pair them with pants, palazzo, or jeans.
With each family, comes more cousins and their companions, and their weddings as well. Light lehenga is an ideal decision to wear on such occasions and having a few heavy lehengas will be a great help.
Footwear to go with every outfit
Wedding shoes are an important and integral part of the wedding as you will be walking in them the whole day. Make sure you pick the best and most comfortable ones for your wedding trousseau. For your collection, you must shop for kitten heels as they are great to combine with pants and dresses; pumps to work best with each sort of outfit, from western to ethnic; wedges for pants, short dresses, and easygoing outfits; platform heels to include style and comfort; and juttis for chic ethnic wear.
While you must have shopped some handpicked lingerie already, you must add classy coordinates to your nightwear trousseau collection for a smooth transition from your comfortable bedroom to another.

A memory of your old bedroom
Regardless of whether it's your favourite author, a home décor item you love or a photo of your family, make a point to pack something close to your heart in your trousseau. If you pack something from home that was a piece of your everyday life, it'll give you a homely in your new space. Moving to a new home is hard, and this little memory of your childhood home will go far in making you feel more comfortable.
