Weddings in India are almost always about the bling. You may take your cue from the glitter of the Bollywood stardust, as portrayed so effortlessly on our cover muse, actor Tamannaah Bhatia in a crimson Manish Malhotra creation, or you may choose to keep it weightless, à la Tarun Tahiliani. So many options, so much colour, and all the drama that only an Indian wedding can conjure. The latest trends are all about classic elegance. We’re inspired by Bollywood’s favourite designer Manish Malhotra, who’s carved a special niche for himself after 25 years in the industry. Today, he ventures into menswear for the first time, to the unbridled enthusiasm of the Bollywood fraternity. He remains unapologetic about the glitter and the glamour of his design aesthetic, and has stayed true to himself. Kudos to him. Our bridal issue brings you the latest in wedding must-haves, gourmet catering, even a few exclusive honeymoon ideas. But where there’s a bride, shopping can never be far behind, as we go to one of luxury’s favourite online addresses, that will deliver your dress from the Turks and Caicos Islands to Toronto. We’ve curated some stunning cocktail dressing looks, in our fashion feature set at Olive, Mehrauli in New Delhi. And we’re delighted to have our special guest, jewellery designer extraodinaire Nirav Modi, spill on the perfect sparkly trousseau
