Last month, as part of our new initiative ‘WeddingSutra on Location’, we invited three brides-to-be for a unique experience at JADE (by Monica and Karishma), the fashion studio in South Mumbai. Starting with a Style Consultation, a Makeover and a Photo shoot, each of the three participants got to interact with some of the best names in Bridal & Wedding services on how to create their Wedding Day Looks. Here, in the third of the three-part series, bride-to-be Aditi Gulechha blogs about her experience.
“For as long as I remember, I have been dreaming of a perfect wedding look. And now that I am getting married, I realized how fantasizing about the lehenga is fun, but the search in reality is quite difficult. Soon after my engagement I started thinking even more about my wedding day look, I visited a few stores, but wasn’t quite happy after the trials. While going through WeddingSutra’s page on Facebook, I came across ‘Wedding Sutra on Location’ and thought this would be a great opportunity for me to try out something new. I wrote in to them, quite unsure if I would be selected but luckily I received a call. When I arrived at the venue- Jade, I was introduced to ace Bollywood Stylist Nisha Kundnani. I had a brief chat about my likes and dislikes, and based on my inputs, Nisha suggested a few outfits which would suit me. I actually quite liked all the outfits at Jade, and each and every outfit which Nisha selected so I had no clue which would suit me best. Nisha told me to try one, and I was quite comfortable in it. I then proceeded for my make up with Makeup Artist Amrita Sanghavi. She recommended smokey eyes and a side bun. I had never tried a side bun so was a little unsure but at the same time I wanted to try something new. And I was so happy I went with Amrita’s recommendations. I felt my eyes never looked so beautiful and the side bun added a little drama to my look. And yes I could carry it off!”
“The Makeover was followed by a Photo shoot with Dev Purbiya. Nisha and Dev suggested different poses for the photos. I was very pleased with Dev as he encouraged me to pose without making me feel uncomfortable. Overall, it was a great experience. WeddingSutra on Location gave me what I needed – the confidence to try something new.”
