“I had a micro-wedding; there was no sangeet or Mehendi, just our wedding day. With the pandemic restrictions upon us last year, we hosted a 12-people wedding in my husband’s backyard, and there was no need for a new outfit. So, I wore a vintage pant-suit from Gianfranco Ferré (that I had bought earlier) with a Torani dupatta as a veil (that was added two days before the wedding). With this, I wore jewelry from Anu Merton.
This was a controversial look for those accustomed to traditional Indian bridalwear, and I received a mixed bag of reactions. With a little distance and perspective, none of those opinions matter now. The only opinions I will carry with me forever are my own and those of my husband. I believe that one shouldn’t be forced or shamed into wearing something you don’t want to on your wedding day.”

“I always wanted to wear orange and yellow for my wedding, rather than the traditional red. At the combined Mehendi and sangeet sundowner, I wore a one-shoulder, embroidered cropped top, and flared pants by Nikhil Thampi, and I was so comfortable in it. It was an elegant yet easy style, which left me free to dance the night away. I felt confident about my look, and all my guests appreciated that. In fact, I even received many texts from other brides who were inspired by my decision. My advice is to follow your heart and wear what you wish to, for your special day. Make sure you are comfortable and everything will fall in place.”
