Oh and BTW, these cake toppers double up to be your lovely wedding keepsake too. Take a look.

MANISH MALHOTRA

Bollywood’s favourite certainly lived up to his name. His winter/festive collection is all about Indian craftsmanship fused perfectly with contemporary silhouettes. The garments had Malhotra’s signature resham threadwork, sequins and detailed hand embroidery. The jacket sarees, crop blouses and sheer capes added a modern touch to the traditional bridal lehenga choli collection. Floral motifs were used to amp up the contemporary factor.

ANUSHREE REDDY

Anushree Reddy’s collection, titled ‘Wedding Chronicle’ comprised of florals, zardozi embroidery and a lot of pastels. The bridal lehenga collection included flared, comfy silhouettes along with off-shoulder blouses that added a western touch to the Indian bridal lehenga choli. The pastel colour palette was mixed to perfection along with just the right amount of embroidery to ensure that it did indeed, look wedding-worthy.

PAYAL KHANDWALA

Payal Khandwala introduced a collection called ‘The New Emperor’ and rightfully, the lion motifs and the brocades in strong metallic accents did justice to this. Furthermore, the textiles were hand-woven Banarasi weaves and used gold thread to illuminate the deep jewel-toned colour palette. The range, being all about a woman as a monarch, also incorporated power dressing such as fusing Indian bridal lehenga silhouettes with jackets, cuffs and collars. All in all, it truly was a collection fit for royalty.

PAYAL SINGHAL

Payal Singhal’s ‘Pakizah’, as true to its name, was all about the beauty in pure, unadulterated design. It featured clean, minimalistic cuts in organic fabrics like silk, raw silk and mul. The silhouettes were a fusion of traditional and contemporary styles with off-shoulder cholis, cold-shoulder kurtas and scalloped hemlines. In a colour palette of pale pink, dusk blue, sand, grey and black, the organic fabrics were adorned with nature inspired motifs and mukaish work. Made for a modern and contemporary bride, the bridal lehenga range was timeless and elegant.

RIDHI MEHRA

Ridhi Mehra’s ‘Arcadia’ took inspiration from vintage garden elements. The designer played with crepe, georgette, silk and net, giving a very feminine and flowy aura to this ethereal bridal wear collection. The colour palette was imbibed with warm Indian tones. Using bridal lehenga with cropped capes, anarkali suits, plunging necklines and sheer fabrics with embroidery, the collection did indeed come alive magically.

SHANTANU AND NIKHIL

What caught our eye in Shantanu and Nikhil’s fashion show was the sherwani collection for grooms than womenswear. The collection featured a strong, military aesthetic and paid homage to our country’s freedom fighters. The silhouettes were not only utilitarian but also had an air of grandeur that we feel would work perfectly as a regal groomswear look.

SVA BY SONAM AND PARAS MODI

This collection was all about blending French street art with ethnic beauty and elegance. Inspired from the ancestral art of French neighbourhood Montparnasse, the garments were all crafted in shades of beige, wine, black and dark hues of blue and green. Elaborate drapes, metallic brocades and cut out elements all added emphasis to the sophistication of French cum Indian creations.

SABYASACHI

As rich, regal and opulent as his collections usually are, this one, termed ‘Illuminate’ was just as breath-taking. Comprising of deep reds, golds, blues, greens and blacks, all in hand-embroidered ensembles, the garments made use of light sheer and glitter to balance out the richness of the velvets. Zardozi, Parsi work, Baroque crystals, Kashmiri tilla work and faux fur are some of the elements that dominated this resplendent collection.
His sherwani collection for grooms was just as stunning as his bridal lehenga and sarees range. The trade-mark bandh-galas, rich silk sherwanis and floral prints certainly made a statement on the ramp.

When the wedding day is over and people return to their normal lives, it is not unusual for couples to feel a little melancholic due to the lack of pampering and attention. While it’s a prime time for them to enjoy quality time *ahem* *ahem*, many get caught up in their daily lives and do not make the most of it, especially post honeymoon. Why not be a lifesaver and as a non-material wedding gift send them on a romantic date on some weekend? Candle light, delicious food, aged wine – what more could they ask for?

We have all heard of and liked pre-wedding shoot albums but wouldn’t it be a nice surprise if you gave something to the couple that they could use post the wedding? After all, that is when they truly start living together and are fully aware of each other’s likes and dislikes.

North Indian wedding demands an over-the-top celebration with dhol tasha and the works! So, when it comes to performing on a sangeet night, goes without saying that the performances have to be par expectations and look no less than a Bollywood wedding set.

While the Kala Chasma song from this movie is making all young groovy, this sangeet song caters to performers of all age group. A typical wedding song, Nachde ne saare, true to its lyrics will set all your audiences’ foot-tapping. You can have your parents and all the other elderly members perform on this one with you and your partner. With beats so easy, we say if Rohan Joshi from AIB can shake a leg on this Bollywood song, so can anybody. 😉

How dare we miss out on suggesting you a Bollywood sangeet song for an all-boy crew performance? As we all are aware of the hotness quotients Punjabi boys carry with them, why not crank up the heat a little?! This Hindi / Punjabi song sung by the rocking Yo Yo Honey Singh is perfect to showcase the swag of your boy gang.

We know, we know, that the Beat Pe Booty Challenge has been doing the rounds and this song has somehow got onto our nerves. Nonetheless, you can’t deny the fact that this Bollywood song does have some catchy beats and sure to get your foot-tapping or that booty shaking. This could be a great sangeet song choice for the little members in the house. Have all your chillar-party get on stage to give a sweet performance on this. No matter how annoying this hindi song might’ve got, looking at the little munchkins shake a leg (or their booty), we’re sure you will not pay much heed to the song in the background. Instead, keep the hooting going.

 

What are you waiting for? Get your dancing shoes on and rock your Punjabi sangeet performances.

You know that pair of earrings that your mum always wears? Or may be that handloom saree that she only keeps aside for special occasions? Yes, that’s the one we want you to take (borrow, if you will ;)) in your bridal trousseau. After all, nothing like a classic jewellery piece or sari to rock those parties you will be attending post marriage. You can pair your mom’s sari with a trendy blouse for a look that is more you. If you have chosen jewellery, use it to jazz up ethnic wear like long skirts or kurtas. You can also wear neck pieces as tiaras if you want!

Well, you will be settling into a new space and we figured nothing an old favourite from your first home to get you started. After you have utilized your bridal lingerie (;) if you ever run out of ideas, we have plenty of those too), you would want to change into something comfortable and just catch up on some sleep! For that, you would need your comfy pair of PJs. Or maybe you are not a morning person and need that special cup of steaming tea! Why not carry your favourite tea mug to your new home and wake up with a smile?

Besides being a great decorative item, plants also signify how you would nurture the new relationship. If you are living in an apartment, you can take some soil with you and plant a small succulent in it. Every time, you look at it, you will be reminded of fond memories from your parents’ home.

You can thank us later! Go, get started on that bridal trousseau!
