My Bridal Outfits | Saree shopping in Mumbai

 

Hey everyone!

I’d been planning this post since before the wedding but the last few weeks leading up to the wedding were so hectic that I never got the time to put this up. I still don’t have all the pictures I wanted for this post but I’ve left everything back home in Bhopal so I’m just posting this with the pics I have at the moment! Just a little disclaimer before I talk about my outfits – I don’t believe in spending exorbitantly on weddings especially outfits one would rarely wear again. So this post won’t talk about designer outfits and such! This isn’t a comprehensive guide to bridal outfits, just a recount of what I picked!

– I was more or less clear on what I wanted to wear. Since the wedding wasn’t an elaborate affair with very few functions, I didn’t need a lot of outfits and since I was to move abroad right after the wedding, I didn’t want to buy too many outfits or spend a crazy amount on the wedding outfit. I had decided beforehand that I wanted to wear a saree and I wanted pieces that were youthful, bright and light [work-wise], not too heavy or traditional. My Mum was mostly on board with my choices but did chip in when she felt the saree was a little too ‘modern‘. I generally know instantly when I like something and can decide quite quickly so shopping was a breeze!

 

– My Sarees were bought in October within 2 days. My mum and I shopped from 3 stores- Jashn, Soch and Aishwarya Sarees. Jashn and Soch are present in many malls, we went to Inorbit Malad. Aishwarya Sarees has a couple of stores in Mumbai, we went to the one in Irla (Andheri West).

Sneak Peek : Sultry Bridal Makeup

 

Hey everyone!

After doing 2 slightly softer bridal looks, I decided to go all out with a heavy smokey eye and a deep red lip for my next tutorial. The look is quite dramatic but its quite a popular bridal look! And sans the bindi and other bridal accessories, its a classic fall makeup look that looks great with western wear as well! Hope you will enjoy the tutorial, it will be up early next week!

 

What do you think of this look?

Bridal Makeup Tutorial : Coral + Bronze

 

This isn’t a traditionally bridal or very dramatic look but it pairs well with bright yellow/oranges and with blues and greens as well. When you’re wearing something very colorful with jewelry to match, the makeup needs to be a little subtle to balance out the whole look! I think this look is perfect for one of the smaller wedding functions!

This video is quite long but I hope you find it useful! Don’t forget to leave me a comment!

Bridal Nail Art Idea : Glossy Red with Gold Accent

 

Hey everyone!

I had been thinking along the lines of red and gold (the obvious bridal colors!) for my nails for the wedding day. I found some beautiful yet simple polishes that integrate gold flecks in red or red glitter in a red base. But sadly these aren’t available in India. So I looked through everything gold and red through my stash and created this simple statement nail art ~
