Your Mayon, Your Way By Oriental Costumes
Mayon is the first event and the start of a traditional South Asian wedding. There are many colours and styles people wear at the Mayon, including the Dulhan – the Bride. But traditionally the colour worn in Mayon is yellow.
This tradition continues but instead of just wearing yellow; bride, her friends, her cousins, people invited mix yellow with other colours, patterns, and embroideries.
In the world of brands and designers, people buy elaborate, intricate, and extravagant suits for the Mayon. So in this world of ornate and rich Mayon outfits try something different and be different.
Instead of buying a lavish outfit designed by someone else, be your own designer, be simple, be unique, and be your own creation at your own or a friend’s or a sister’s or a cousin’s Mayon. Be the person everyone will be at awe with.
Wondering how? Oriental Costumes can help you with that.
Follow these easy steps:
1. Pick a type of clothing you want to wear, as in, do you want to wear a lehnga or a gharara – these two are more traditional outfits for the mayon.
2. Pick the colour of your lehnga or gharara – yellow, green, blue, purple, red, pink, or multicolour.
3. Pick the material of the lehnga/gharara – banarasi material is usually the best for this.
4. Now pick the material and colour for your kameez (top) and dupatta (veil) – preferably in a different colour than the lehnga/gharara.
5. Then select the colour of gota or any other more traditional work to adorn your outfit with it – Gota is more traditional choice.
6. Last but not least get it stitched and tailored to your liking and be the talk of the Mayon party.
