Indian weddings are truly a celebration. This lavish and colorful three-day affair full of vibrancy, love and a whole lot of wow-factor.From the Bride’s intricate Mehendi and gorgeous makeup to the couple’s beautiful outfits and rich, red Hindu ceremony, every detail of this affair is truly stunning. So lets catch up what I wore as a bridemaid.
Having being married I Know incredible stories about Indian weddings. How royal, breathtaking and absolutely gigantically majestic they are. It was full of happiness to gather all together with the family members and experience the fun at weddings. ( PS. This was my first wedding to attend after getting married. So it was special that too in the Royal city of Jaipur.)
Indian wear, to me, is more about tradition, culture, colors and textures. India has a rich textile heritage that dates back centuries. It amazes me how a small change in weaving technique can create such a vivid and beautiful difference in the garment created with it. An Indian wedding is the perfect chance to wear that heritage with pride..however more and more I see Indian wedding parties turning into a western reception, with women clad in the finest gowns and men ditching their regal Bandhgalas and tuxedos.
For the wedding I wanted a traditional outfit with a modern touch to it. For the occasion, it was my goal to make my own reinterpretation of the perfect modern yet traditional Indian Lehenga look. I was so so so excited to wear something completely traditional and feel like and Indian princess for a night.And to make it even more special, I had the honor to wear the antique pearl Jewellery given to me by my Mother In law to match the outfit.As soon as I saw that deep royal blue in the market earlier that day, I knew it was the one I wore that night.I wore a Fish Style beige Lehenga and gave it a modern twist with a pearl kamar bandh and way the duppatta to be wrapped.I fell in love with the color as soon as I saw it on the rack in the store and didn’t even think further. I paired it up with an antique gold neckpiece and Maang tikka.
When I closed my eyes and envisioned it, I saw colors, flowers everywhere, colorful, sparkling saris and lehengas and the most lively and vivid ambiance in the world.
I have to say, I danced, I ate all night, eyes were hypnotized by all these bold, bright colors, those prints, flavors and scents, diamonds, gold everywhere. It will remain an unforgettable night for me and definitely a unique experience which I’ll keep a very strong memory of. A tremendous thanks to Family for this stunning adventure! Hope you guys will enjoy the images.
