Astha wears flowy creations by Shantanu-Nikhil, Manish Malhotra and Sabyasachi for Udaipur wedding

Astha Sharma married her childhood sweetheart Saurabh Khetan, a business tycoon at a grand wedding on June 26, 2009. The wedding was held in Udaipur, Saurabh and Asthas home town; after Astha completed her college in UK she returned to India to join Unilever, Mumbai where she worked on Lakme and Lakme Fashion Week. Saurabh and Astha now live in Udaipur.

Says Astha: …Since I had worked on Lakme Fashion Week, I had interacted extensively with many prominent designers‚so I was very clear who I liked, and what unique creation I wanted to wear for each wedding function. Asthas picks were Sabyasachi, who designed a red and a blue creation with antique embroidery for the main wedding function, a pink Manish Malhotra for the Sangeet, a rust colored lehenga by her good friend Rahul Misra for the Mehndi and a Shantanu-Nikhil outfit for the pool party. Adds Astha: …The wedding was in peak summer in Udaipur‚so I requested all the designers to create grand yet light and flowy creations. The result was some really cool creations which I not only loved, but in which I could move around easily.

Astha who loves wearing traditional Indian prints, colors and sarees, picked most of her trousseau from Jaipur, a city she recommends as a must-visit destination for every bride who whose style is Indian. She says: …My three favorite shopping destinations in Jaipur are Vasansi, for their sheer variety, Rukmani for their beautiful French chiffons and designer Nidhi Tholia for her excellent cuts and value-for-money creations.
