Rang-e-Ishq – A Love Story Set in Paradise on Earth!

As the video landed in our inbox and we hit play, our romantic hearts flashed back to a few years ago, when a similar setting and shayaari set the mood for an epic love story – Veer Zaara. Kiran and Vipul wanted a pre-wedding shoot in Jammu & Kashmir and WeddingNama left no stone unturned for the major feat. When the team and the couple landed in J&K, they were informed that it was one of the coldest winters and Gulmarg had never seen so much snow in the last three decades. 

While this sounds extremely romantic, it posed a lot of obstacles for the entire team but as they say, “Love conquers it All”! With the zeal and passion burning bright, the team trekked through snow and reached their destination, although not without a few bruises and frost bites! With extra equipment and backup for everything, the team slowly made their way to Gulmarg and  other locations where they shot at temperatures ranging between -1 to -15 degrees! Brrr!!! The cooperative locals, one love-struck couple and a team that refused to give up – everything came together and created this video that we now know as Rang-e-Ishq!

7 Mistakes to Avoid While Getting a Lehenga or Saree Blouse Stitched!

APPROPRIATE FABRIC

It all starts with choosing the right fabric. Usually the lehenga is stitched a few months before the wedding. So make sure that you choose fabric that will suit weather conditions then too. (You don’t want to be wearing heavy velvet in the summer or sheer net in the winter.)


APPROPRIATE FABRIC

 

AVOID MEASUREMENTS DURING YOUR PERIOD

When you have your period, your body retains water which in turn causes you to bloat. Avoid getting your blouse/lehenga measurements taken during this time as they most likely will result in wrong measurements.

AVOID MEASUREMENTS DURING YOUR PERIOD

 

ARMHOLE FIT

Ensure that the armhole fit is just right. If it’s too tight, it’ll create discomfort. You don’t want the fabric under your arm to rip during the jaimala!

ARMHOLE FIT

 

KEEP ENOUGH MARGIN

While tightening a blouse is easy, loosening one is not. Always keep 2 inches allowance in the seams so you can make alterations as and when needed. This way you can get a perfect fit on the wedding day.
Also, never get a blouse that is smaller than your size thinking that you’ll lose weight before the wedding! Just. Never.

KEEP ENOUGH MARGIN

 

SIDE ZIPPER INSTEAD OF BUTTONS

With all the bending and moving during your shaadi rituals, buttons may create gaps in the fastening. A concealed side zipper is perfect as it’ll stay put as well as stay hidden and not interfere with your blouse design.

BLOUSE PADDING

When decided between a padded blouse or lingerie, we suggest you stick with lingerie as it will fit perfectly. However, if your blouse cut/style doesn’t agree with lingerie, make sure that the padding of the blouse is positioned perfectly. Also, ensure that it is neither too thick nor too thin.

BLOUSE PADDING
 

WEAR THE CORRECT BRA SIZE DURING MEASUREMENTS

Wearing a bra that sits perfectly is crucial to your measurements as it will contribute to the fit of the blouse. Ideally, during measurements, wear the bra that you will wear on the wedding day.

4 most common make-up problems and how to deal with them?

While most of your wedding may go according to the plan, some things that just aren’t in your control! So to help you worry a little less, we spoke to a few top make-up artists and got a list of quick fixes to handle common make up problems for a bride.
Ideally, the best thing is to have your make-up artist around. If not:

What to do if your eyeliner smudges?

If you are the classic bride, you WILL cry at your wedding; which in turn will cause your mascara to run. (If it’s not water-proof)
Just use a wet Q-tip to take off the smudged mascara/eyeliner. You might need to touch up your foundation around the eyes as well so keep that and your compact within easy access.


What to do if your eyeliner smudges?
 

What if your winged eyeliner is not #onpoint?

Make up artist, Monisha Bathija says:
“Winged liners are the trickiest and the most difficult part is to balance both the sides.
However your best friend in such a situation would be ear/cotton buds n a makeup remover. Simply dip the ear bud into the makeup remover, stretch your skin slightly from the temple area (so that there are no bumps and you can get a fierce wing) and follow the ear bud from the lower lash line towards the eyebrow!”


What if your winged eyeliner is not #onpoint?
 

How to avoid getting lipstick stuck on your teeth?

To avoid getting lipstick on your teeth, blot it with a tissue after applying. You could also set it in with light compact, though the colour might not be as dark.
Another way is to put your finger in your mouth and pull through. This will get all the lipstick that is on the inner part of your lip.

 How to deal with a shiny face without having to pull out your compact all the time?

Never touch up with a compact throughout the day as that’ll just result in clogging of pores which would result in break-outs!
We suggest you make sure that you have blotting papers around to suck up the shine. Dab them on your face as and when needed! Totally handy.
