The Complete Wedding Trousseau Checklist for the 2021 Bride!
Shopping for your own wedding can be exciting but really exhausting at the same time for any bride to be. From the dresses for different ceremonies, to the complementing accessories and footwears and not to forget the complete Wedding Trousseau!
The Wedding Trousseau is a collection of all the essential items that a newly wedded bride carries to her new home. It has all the big and small things including clothes, accessories, makeup, perfumes, jewellery and so on that she might need while settling in her new life.
So, here we go brides! We’re here to make sure that you pack the best of every stuff and not miss out on anything important and this ultimate checklist will do your job well.
Ethnic Wear :
The most important thing in your Wedding Trousseau needs to be loads of ethnic stuff. Be prepared to visit a lot of guests and relatives right after the wedlock and you don’t want to look any less in front of them. So, make sure to pack plenty of ethnic wear including Sarees from some heavily embellished to a few lighter ones for family get-togethers, pujas and other functions. Suits in different styles like anarkalis, kurta-pants, salwar- kameez etc. can also work wonders. The trending Fusion Dresses for the day outs and frequent dinner parties are sure to pep up your look and make you the most stylish newlywed ever.
Western wears have become a part of our daily lives. They’re easy to carry, easy to maintain and extremely convenient and comfortable. So do not forget to take with you your favourites as well as some showstopping western outfits for your romantic date nights and honeymoon travels. We suggest you carry at least 2-3 pairs of jeans, 6-7 t shirts and tops, a few dresses and some comfy palazzo pants and trousers because, let’s face it, no matter how good you look in those heavy ethnic dresses, they can get way too tiring and uncomfortable to carry all day long. You deserve a break.
With so many options available out there, picking the favourite footwears can get really challenging for our already overwhelmed brides. It is not humanly possible to pack matching footwears with every outfit in one’s Wedding Trousseau. What we feel is best for our to-be brides is to shop as per their comfort. The ones that are too fancy but not at all comfortable should be a complete no right away.
Makeup and Skincare :
Makeup and skincare choices are very subjective. They need to be suitable for your skin and hair to bring the best out of you. We would highly recommend you to go for the products that have worked for you so far. Make sure not to ignore your skincare routine even amidst all the wedding chaos. It might seem like something that can be ignored for a day or so but trust us when we say it shouldn’t be taken lightly..
Jewellery is the one true love of every bride. Having the right one for each outfit is what makes the total outfit look gorgeous on you. Keep some accessories like pendants and earrings to go with almost all outfits. That would minimise your Wedding Trousseau and also spare you the trouble of changing every accessory for the smallest of occasions. Do remember to keep some statement pieces for the exclusive outfits and occasions.
One of the most ignored yet the most important things that go in the trousseau have to be your favourite signature perfumes and fragrances. Do not ever miss out on these! Your perfume marks your personality and aura. People often associate you with your signature scent. Moreover, fragrances are one of the biggest feel good factors for yourself. All your dressing up and make up remains incomplete without a drop of your favourite scent. So in a nutshell, make sure you carry your personal favourite women’s scent, and pick out a few premium fragrances for some special occasions.

This category comprises all the other elements you need to glam up your attire with. All knick knacks like watches, sunglasses, masks, belts, and sindoor fall under this category. The smallest of things like safety pins, hair clips, rubber bands, bathing towels, handkerchiefs, that prove to be of utmost importance need to be listed carefully and packed in your accessories box carefully to avoid unnecessary troubles later.
Lingerie & Loungewear :
From fancy to the basic, you need to have a varied variety when it comes to possessing lingerie. We all know that there is a right one for each type of outfit you wear, so making sure you have at least one for each category is a smart decision. Also, when it comes to honeymoon, do carry some smart swimwear if you are planning to go to any beachy location. It’s always wise to pack comfortable nightwear and lingerie of your choice because who would want to sleep uncomfortably after having a long hectic day, isn’t it?
Handbags are a woman’s best friend for a reason. They will keep all your stuff at one place. Make sure to curate your Wedding Trousseau with some timeless handbags, clutches and wallets. Go for options that can be used in multiple ways. A clever decision would be to opt for good quality bags as they last you long and are quite sturdy.
Planning, organising and packing for your Wedding Trousseau can be an irksome task that needs avid attention. It might get tiring at times, but prevent the urge of being careless with it. It will definitely be worth the effort once you step into your new home and find all that you need in those beautiful packages. So, make sure you do not miss out on anything before you walk in your new life. List, shop, organise and pack with all your excitement. After all, it’s all for your big day and most importantly, after!
