Pawandeep & Jasmin Delhi : Cute and traditional Sikh Wedding held in a Gurudwara at Chhatarpur

We love romance stories. Especially when the story starts way back in 9th grade and ends in a beautiful wedding in Chhatarpur! Meet Pawandeep and Jasmin who have been romancing each other in the cutest way possible, since school.

"When i was in 9th grade, Pawan proposed to me in a gurudwara. I accepted and we dated for a few short months. I knew him from my tuition classes and had a huge crush on him! Being kids, there were a lot of misunderstanding between us, that time and we broke it off. Several years later, Pawan tracked me down. He confessed that he still loved me and convinced me to give us another shot. He had loved me all these years and had never managed to get over me. A short time later, he proposed to me again!"

                                                         – Jasmin, The Bride.

We love how the story ended! Check out their totally sweet and romantic wedding below!

Corset Lehengas: This New Wedding Trend Is Taking Over Bridal Fashion

So India Couture Week concluded a month ago and Lakme Fashion week ended just a week back. What does that tell us? That we now know what’s hot and happening in the fashion world!

Seeing as we are a wedding blog, we picked up all the gorgeousness we saw in bridal fashion. And one cool trend really stood out to us – Corset Lehengas!

What are corset lehengas?

Well, lehengas with corset-styled blouses, duh. The lehengas are paired with extremely fitted blouses with a corset-style neckline and silhouette. The blend of Indian embellishment along with silhouettes inspired by the Victorian era of the west makes these outfits simply stunning.

Bridesmaids Alert: Make-up artist Priyanka Arora tells us what’s hot this season! From make-up to lehenga to jewellery – check out what’s happening on the bridemaids front this wedding season.

Wedding Make-Up

Wedding Make-Up

> Try a bold look with your eye makeup and explore as many colors as you can. One color that is going to be sparkling this season is the color BLUE.
> Make sure that you are using a good foundation and it is well blended. If you are going for a party that is going to last for a whole day, use a very light weight foundation or mousse but make sure that the makeup doesn’t look cakey. BLENDING is the key, ladies.
> Glow for it, gorgeous! Contour and strobe your pretty features using a good highlighter and contour. Try out different looks for all functions such as smokey, glittery and matte eyes. Add a little drama to your face by using eyelashes to complete the look.

Wedding Outfit

Wedding Outfit

> As a bridesmaid, make sure your outfit is comfortable outfit is to be comfortable.
> According to me, a bridesmaid should wear something modern yet elegant and classy.
> The off-shoulder trend, which is a popular street-style, has made its way to the bridal world also.
> Cropped skirt with a crop top is one of my favorites for a Mehndi function.
> Digital prints in geometric, abstract and floral embroideries and patterns are the latest trends.
> Running around for small errands in comfortable shoes for a bridesmaid can be such a relief. Wedge heels make things perfect in terms of exaggerating the height and giving comfort. If you are still a pencil girl, walk in those heels many times before you actually wear it on the final day.

> Invest in a statement Mathapatti or a Nath. Try out different types of Nath’s considering their different sizes and patterns for your look.
> If you are going for heavy Mathapatti or Nath, go subtle with your neckpiece. Playing around with different chokers can also be considered.

Remember these bridesmaid’s tips and you are good to go! Remember there’s no better makeup than CONFIDENCE. I believe that all women are pretty without makeup and can be pretty powerful with the right makeup and dressing tips!

Monika Nidhii – These Sparkly Bridal Lehengas Are Perfect For Your Sangeet Night!

Designers Monika and Nidhii showcased their latest bridal collection at Lakme Fashion Week for the first time and it serves as major wedding inspo for every modern bride out there. Titled ‘An Ethereal Romance’, the collection was every bit whimsical as one can dream it to be.

Pernia Qureshi looked stunning as she walked down the ramp as showstopper in an ivory lehenga with sparkling floral embroidery and a fitted off-shoulder blouse.

This feminine line was full of flowy fabrics, pastel colours and sparkling embroidery. The silhouettes took inspiration from the Victorian era with corset-blouses, ballroom styling, long cape sleeves, elaborate feathers and fringes, and of course, the delicate, feminine colours. Shades of salmon pink, mint, ivory and blue were used on soft, flowy fabrics like georgette, tulle, crepe and satin.

All in all, it was a line full of sparkling details and old-world charm, ideal for a bride or bridesmaid who doesn’t want to stick to your typical red lehenga!
