#FriendOfTheBride - Wedding

Image
Coming the last part of this wedding series, and also the last post of 2015. Indian weddings are all about magnificent venues & glamorous outfits. For the wedding, I decided to play smart with the budget & did not opt for a ready-made outfit. So after a rigorous brainstorming finalized the fabrics & raw materials, even did knick knacks like pasting Swarovski beads on the dupatta, shortlisted the blouse design & trust me, I was more than happy with the end result. The satisfaction of seeing your hardwork being paid off is beyond words!  I chose this combination of red, blue & gold. Since the skirt was all gold with beautiful glitter work, I opted for a contrasting blouse in navy blue. And the red dupatta perfectly added the Indian wedding vibe to the outfit.  For the jewellery, I wanted to break the monotony of kundan, polki etc, so I picked this maang tikka for its modern twist. Since it was the statement piece, I kept the rest of the jewellery muted with Swarovski st…

#FriendOfTheBride - Cocktail

Image
Cocktail is that one wedding ceremony where you get to ditch those heavy, glittery ethnic outfits & opt for sassy western gowns! 
For this occasion, I chose a chic black number with side slits. The high round neck detailing, the soft pleats waist down and the blend of two different textures makes it more than just a simple dress.
According to me, a black dress is a must have in every girl's wardrobe. It effortlessly leaves a spectacular impression & is the perfect option when you are unable to decide as to what to wear.  Accessories really help in lifting an otherwise plain outfit. Moreover, when it is all black you get numerous options to choose from, and when styled correct you'll surely look beautiful!  I styled this dress with metallic gold tone in form of the belt & pointed heels. As for accessories, I wore these pearl statement earrings for that evening elegance. Soft curls & red lips to complete the look! As for the bride-to-be, she wore a stunning ball room …

#FriendOfTheBride - Mehendi

Image
Out of all the wedding functions that we attend, according to me 'Mehendi' is the most colourful, crazzyy yet relaxed one, not just for the bridesmaids but also for the bride (yes, excluding 4 hours of pain in ass mehendi process)!
For the mehendi outfit, if you remember I chose this vibrant high & low kurta. I wanted to wear something that was not just easy to move around in but also glamorous. It had beautiful thread & mirror work & the yellow colour perfectly suited the theme.

The credit to these floral palazzos goes to my really close friend Esha who came to rescue & suggested me to get the bottoms customised, chose the perfect print, since I did not want to go for regular boring churidars & couldn't find absolutely anything ready-made. 


Coming to the jewellery, I just wore these big Passa earrings, keeping the hands bare for mehendiii.. . I did a side braid with my hair & kept the make up simple with a winged liner & L'oreal Glamour Fuchs…

#FriendOfTheBride - Engagement

Image
Lets be honest - at a wedding, apart from the bride, the next best dressed people, one looks forward to, are the sisters or friends of the bride! Right from the outfit to makeup to hair, everything has to be on-point without fail.


So, I decided to come up with a #FriendOfTheBride wedding series, basically an attempt to help those girls who are going haywire in search for the perfect outfits for every occasion.



My bestfriend is getting married, and for her engagement I chose a contemporary outfit. It's a beautiful Marsala hued floor length Anarkali, with intricate gota patti work waist up & a keyhole back. The high neck makes it stand out from the crowd!Paired it with polki earrings & a ring.


The bride to be, Anisha, looked really gorgeous in her olive green attire paired with chaandbalis. Effortlessly stylish! I absolutely loved her hair, a braided low bun accessorized with a Passa!
