Unconventional wedding colours

Vibrant colours are perfect for a wedding. But now, some adventurous  folks are ditching conventional colours for options like grey. Mishru’s Winter/Festive '18 collection, 'Supernova' features a colour palette ranging from midnight blue to  sheer  grey, which is sure to make heads turn as an  unconventional choice of colour for a wedding.

Swapna Anumolu, founder and designer of Mishru says, “Colours like stardust blue, twilight green and night sky shades are gaining immense popularity with new-age brides. Ashen shades like grey are a must in every bride’s trousseau.”
