So what exactly are brides’ sights set on this season? What are they looking at when it comes to dress styles, hair, diets, skin and make-up? Let’s take a peek at some of the latest wedding trends that show up on the horizon. Brides are pushing the envelope this season when it comes to bridal finery and jewellery. Concept sarees could be the trend this year – sarees that are pre-stitched or draped so they give you a feeling of a gown.

What used to be an exclusively female domain is now being patronised by an increasing number of men. A few years ago we would never have seen a man in a spa.
