Cool fair tonned girls

Cool toned fair coloured brides should go for lemon yellow, light pink, bubblegum, light green, sky blue, etc. or some other lighter shades. Not only for your wedding day, you can use these colors even for your Roka, Sangeet, Mehandi. My personal favourite is the last one, sky blue.

Fair to wheatish skin tone

Pastel are the colours, we wear sometimes. Like in spring, your sides are on pastel side. Pastels  are not everybody’s cup of tea, so, if you can pull it off, wear pastels. If you don’t like pastel go for the lehengas in block shades, true colours. One can try colours like Red, Orange, Chrome, Yellow, leaf green and pastel ofcourse. Here is an example of the same attached below.
