Shopping for the wedding dress is exciting but how can we forget the trousseau shopping! We have all heard our mum insist that we have everything from suits to saris, dresses to sweaters, high heels to juttis! However, buying so much seems like a waste in these covid times, so here we are to help you decide which essentials to buy and avoid for a trousseau fit for a 2020 bride.
Trousseau Shopping List for a Covid Bride getting married in 2020
With Covid around, you won’t have to make many social appearances after the wedding. So, it’s smart to not splurge on an ultimate makeup kit which includes 10,000 products! Instead, invest in only the five foundations of makeup – foundation, mascara, eyeliner, blush and lipsticks. Instead of lots of inexpensive make up, buy these essentials from good brands. You can even look at products that double up – foundation+concealer, lipstick+blush, liner+kaajal which solve all your basic needs. This much makeup will have you covered (pun intended)for any small family gatherings, functions and festivities you’ll have to attend as a new bahu.
Comfortable Yet Sexy Lingerie
Your trousseau is incomplete without some sexy lingerie. As you’re going to spend a lot of alone time at home with your husband *Wink Wink* Go for different fabrics, from lace to satin to chiffons, experiment and invest in lingerie which makes you feel bold and sexy AND those which YOU can easily hand wash at home too!
Ditch Those High heels
We girls just can’t do without our heels. But be smart and avoid buying new ones for your trousseau. Instead invest in some juttis, sneakers and flats, to match your Indian and western wear AND stay comfortable since home dos are what we expect for a while!
Avoid Heavy Indian Outfits
Instead of buying heavy Indian outfits, get light suits or sharara sets. You can also buy some fusion wear for your low-key functions and family dinners to keep it easy and light.
Don’t just stick to sexy nighties for your trousseau; get a few comfortable PJs too! Nothing beats cute and quirky pajamas when it comes to spending lazy afternoons at home with bae! You can buy matching pajamas for your husband too, to ace your twinning game.
Do NOT invest in heavy duty jewels, which you’re hardly going to wear. Instead buy evergreen and timeless pieces. Invest in solitaires earrings, bracelets, small pendants and rings which you’ll be able to wear on a daily basis with different outfits.
Since you can’t go to the parlour frequently (thanks to covid!) you MUST invest in some beauty tools. Every trousseau set must have these 4 essentials: An epilator for the face and body, bikini groomers, hair styler & blow drier! You can thank us later for making sure you have these in your trousseau.
A Luxury Bag
It doesn’t make sense to buy clutches and potlis to match all your Indian outfits, instead splurge on a luxury bag. Buy that beautiful bag you had your eyes on for soo long and flaunt it. After all, every girl must have at least one luxury bag in her trousseau, am I right? (PS – for the others you can rent these accessories from services that we’ve listed for you too!)
When it comes to trousseau shopping, don’t stress out! This list of trousseau essentials will help you sail through the shopping!
