Wedding Season Looks – Part 1

Don’t we just looovveee desi weddings, I absolutely do & I’m sure all my Indian readers can relate. Apart from the band, baaja and buffet, for women to doll up in ethnic ensembles is a major part of our excitement, noh?  My December social calendar is super packed with a close friend’s wedding (each one being closer than the previous) every weekend, YES !! every weekend, I kid you not. While its a lot of fun being a part of all the dancing and playing important roles in making it happen being second family, alllllll of that comes at the cost of 3 hours sleep per night, but nope I aint complaining.

First one down is very dear friend Bhavesh Karani who’s star studded grand wedding still has me bring myself back mentally from that wonderland. Here are the gorgeous looks I sported, while I danced to KK and Shankar Ehsan Loy who added several stars to the celebrations.

Sangeet Lehenga
Less is more ! Simple bright colors with a royal gold border and you have gorgeous ensemble like this. The blue ghaghra is designed in silk with pleats galore to make sure you no eyes go off you every time you….well…just move! Even if you aren’t dancing hardcore ( although all you would wana do is show off your bollywood side in this number) every time you simply turn, or shake a hip the beautiful material flares upto 3 times and so does your feeling sexy quotient. All I wanted to do is twirl and twirl some more and be my bollywood self to show it off..haha. The blouse was designed in shimmery red lace and the duppatta in net with the matching border. This lovely contract sure made me stand out and had many guests ask who was I wearing!

Baraat & Pheras
This ensemble was everyone’s favorite. Lovely day colors and more ethnic than modern makes it a perfect fit for a baraat/pheras ceremony. I chose to wear a low bun with flowers and a maang tika to complete the traditional look. The blouse was made in raw silk with sequins and the ghaghra in chiffon with multicolored borders. The yellow dupatta in net was a beautiful color to complete the outfit.

Reception Gown
Indo-western being the theme, I chose to attend in this beautiful fusion gown. Velvet combined with brocade in deep maroon for the top half gave it just the right amount of evening glam ( ..or lets say I pick such colors so that I can wear my maroon lippy with it…tehehe) with light green net bottom and colorful hem for a well balanced contrast. The back had a piece of brooch with intricate work adding to the oomph factor.
