From tangerine to lavender and fuschia, Ayesha's wedding trousseau featured eclectic colors & elegant silhouettes.
It’s challenging for a bride to narrow down her sartorial picks for her wedding given the plethora of options available today, from designers to bespoke creations. However, bride Ayesha had already pre-decided the exact looks she wanted for her various functions and matched her outfit with the decor and vibe of each function perfectly.
How They Met
Ayesha found her soulmate in an MBA batchmate abroad, and over the next four years, their connection developed into an enduring bond. Ayesha, who had spent her life travelling around the country as an Army kid found her permanent home in Varanasi where her husband’s family resides.
All the wedding functions were planned by WeddingSutra Favorite – DreamzKrraft and hosted at The Grand, Vasant Kunj, New Delhi.
The reception was held at the groom’s hometown of Varanasi. Ayesha shares, “Right from the start, I had a very clear vision about what I wanted to wear for each of my functions. While my bridal look was definitely going to be royal and exquisite with a rich red Sabyasachi Mukherjee lehenga, I wanted my sangeet ensemble to be very contemporary, and my mehndi vibe to be eclectic and quirky.”
“All my ensembles were perfectly coordinated with the theme and mood of each event and its decor. Makeup artist and WeddingSutra Favorite – Pooja Khurana gave me a fresh, dewy look for my mehndi ceremony, while Tripti Rastogi gave me two distinct glamorous looks for the sangeet and wedding.”
The festivities kicked off with a quirky, colorful mehndi, for which Ayesha donned a lavender velvet lehenga with bold floral motifs and an exquisitely embellished blouse by Mahima Mahajan. Her soft, messy ponytail added a youthful charm to her look. Fresh flowers adorned her hands, while her makeup was on point with dewy skin, smoky eyes with pretty lavender lids, and soft pink lips.
For the evening sangeet, Ayesha oozed glamor in a sleek fuchsia pink gown by Zara Umrigar which shimmered with all over sequin work. She balanced the sparkle of her gown perfectly with minimalist jewellery. Nude lips, bronzed cheeks, muted gold smoky eyes and flowing curls paired perfectly with her chic look.
Like many women, Ayesha has always dreamed of being a quintessential Sabyasachi Mukherjee bride and she ensured that her dream came true. She radiated royalty in a rich tangerine lehenga embellished with gold zari work, that was styled with two dupattas. Antique gold and polki jewelry added to the beauty of the attire, while the bride’s nude lips, bold smoky eyes and sleek, pulled back hair finished off the look.
Clad in a rich grey and gold Banarasi silk saree from Taj Sarees, and heavy Polki jewellery, Ayesha was the epitome of grace and poise. Her sleek glossy mane and smoky eyes lent a modern touch to the ensemble, while her red lips and bindi perfectly matched the traditional essence of her sindoor.
