3. Stylish Footwears: Wedding function is all about heels and that fancy footwear. Post-wedding it’s time to relax. From heels, stilettos, slip- ons , flats to even sneakers. A bride should buy all of them.  These will come handy for special occasions. After all, “it’s your shaadi” and you should make most of this beautiful phase of your life.



4. Silk Pyjamas, your favourite coffee mug and books:  Oh you can’t take all your belongings with you, but you shouldn’t leave favourite ones behind.  Silk Pyjamas that you can wear on your honeymoon, your favourite coffee or chai mug, and your books that can come handy during flights, you should keep them all.



5. Multi-Purpose blouse : In the era of mix and match, babe you should definitely have a multipurpose blouse in your trousseau. Don’t forget to pick a blouse that will go well with multiple saree if styled well. This will save a lot of your time, money, space and efforts.


6. New Make –up: It is one of the most important items of the trousseau.  A bride should always carry a mini vanity with her. There could be some impromptu plans initially. In that case, it is very important to carry your make up. Don’t forget to add popping lipstick colours to always look fresh. Toner, foot cream, essential oils, these all should get a place in your make up kit.



7. Aromatic Candles : Our favourite essential of the bridal trousseau.  We guess you are already aware of the importance of candles.  They could be a great stress buster and can set the right mood in the room, they just do it all.  They can create magic, especially after your marriage.



8. Pampering toiletries:  Post wedding it’s your time to relax, meaning baths, baths, and more baths.  Do not forget to add pebble soaps that smell divine.  Jasmine, rose, any fragrance that you like, you can definitely pick.
