Call it the girl-gang, the mod-squad, the cute-crew, having your besties by your side at the most important times in your life is an unparalleled feeling.

Bride-to-be Urvashi treated her friends and herself to a fun, pre-shaadi "My Best Friend's Wedding" photoshoot with WeddingSutra this month. Our team decided to treat the girls with a dream makeover to help prep for her special day.

Urvashi is the first in the squad to tie the knot and her friends Ishita, Naitri, Mallika and Manita were excited at the prospect of a wedding rehearsal with the wedding experts, WeddingSutra.

The bride and her bridesmaids were invited to spend a day being pampered in a luxury suite at the Taj Lands End Hotel, Mumbai. Perched on the seafront, next to a heritage fort, the hotel offers a magnificent view of the Bandra-Worli Sea Link and the spacious suite instantly wowed the ladies.

Bride-to-be Urvashi loved the plush opulence, “It was just fantastic and gave the whole shoot a very beautiful and elegant appeal.” They were also impressed by how planning and execution meant the day proceeded smoothly. Urvashi says, “From the moment we entered, everything was very organized. Everyone from the makeup artist to the photographer was present. It truly lifted our spirits and nudged us further for the exciting shoot.”

As the girls chatted and laughed and took endless selfies, they managed to choose some incredible lehengas in pastels by designer Bhumika Grover. The current collection is playful, bright and very feminine.

The bride-to-be chose a dark pink lehenga with delicate embellishments and an orange dupatta. Ishita wore a cheery pastel that she really loved, “I was so happy to be wearing a pastel lehenga, it looked great on me.” The other bridesmaids - Naitri, Mallika and Manita also happily posed in the bright ensembles- a palette of shades of joy that matched perfectly in mood and outfit with that of the bride-to-be.

It was their first experience with professional hair and make-up services so the girls were really excited when Heema and Hinal accentuated their natural features, making them look natural and flawless. Urvashi had a confession to make, “I am honestly contemplating canceling the makeup artist I have booked for my wedding and asking Heema and Hinal instead. They were just awesome and understood my face structure so well. The end result was amazing. I’ll have to admit I thought I looked extremely glamorous!”

The bride thought that the bridal jewelry from Gehna Jewelers went perfectly with her aesthetic and taste. As she carefully looked through their collection of maang tikkas and chokers, she finally found a kundan neckpiece, “It was the highlight of my look. I love jewelry that blends well with the clothes!” Urvashi’s bridesmaids picked other beautiful designs from Gehna and coordinated them with the color of their lehengas.

Finally, it was the moment they’d all been waiting for… the photography session with photographer Parag Gopale. Parag was his happy self throughout the shoot and helped bring the best out of his pretty subjects during the shoot. He also took some splendid candid shots while casually talking to them. These eased their nervousness about the entire shoot. “Parag was super friendly, patient and full of energy. Posing for him was so much fun that we almost forgot that this was a bridesmaid shoot we were doing!” laughs the blushing bride-to-be.

While this was a fun filled day for the friends, it was also quite an emotional one. The girls not only bonded over childhood memories but also laughed together about wonderful times that they had shared together. Urvashi did feel a lump in her throat when she spoke about the strong bond that all of them share, “It was such an emotional moment. I was happy that we all got to spend some quality time together and enjoy the day. I don’t even know when I will be able to just hang out with them next. This shoot has been a great surprise and I couldn’t thank the team enough for organizing such a perfect day for us.”
