Indian weddings are so exciting and full of interesting ceremonies, specially if it’s in the family. It is nonstop fun for straight 3-4 days of events, where families of bride and groom do not rest/sleep as they are busy attending guests and making sure the preps are all good. My older brother recently got married in India, his wife is Indian-american girl from Houston. Her whole family and extended family flew from Houston to India to attend this grand affair of 3-4 days.
I admit, it was outstanding! We had an amazing team of Videographers from Mumbai, who are known for their incredible work in wedding filming called Seventy by two-wedding stories. I can’t wait to share their amazing work with you all.
Until then, I have some of my wedding outfit pictures to share with you. I am sharing four of my traditional and non traditional looks. Let me know how you like it and feel free to shoot me as many questions as you may have.
Experimental looks: I had never worn a silk saree earlier but, experimented wearing it on the Mehendi (Henna ceremony)/my birthday party and got lots of compliments. These sarees are ageless, ever graceful and always in fashion. I would highly recommend all you girls to at least have one of these in your closet.
Going Indo-Western: I wore an Indo-Western one shoulder dress/gown on cocktail/sangeet ceremony. This beautiful one shoulder dress is made in georgette with silk threads embroidery and swarovski crystals by designer Geetika Singhal.
How to reuse your wedding lehenga (skirt)?: Most of our wedding outfits are kept in the closet and we never wear them again after our wedding. I re-wore my wedding lehenga on my brother’s wedding day by adding a new touch to it. I got a new wide neck blouse/top designed, and draped the lehenga in a very different way to make it look brand new.
Last look of the day, I kept it simple and classy: It is this beautiful plain chiffon saree with a gorgeous backless embroided blouse and to compliment it, I wore an elegant embroided belt on the reception ceremony. It definitely looked classy as it was appreciated by friends, family and guests.
All the outfits are designed by our very talented designer Anjani by Geetika Singhal.
