This bride styled her bright pink scallop hemmed lehenga with matching pastel pink chooda and kaleerein.
Nothing quite compares to a bride who knows her own style and is determined to flaunt it at her own wedding. Jasryn, a doctor by profession based in Australia, is one such bride who stuck true to her vision and ensured that her bridal wardrobe was in sync with her elegant yet vibrant personality.
Giving an overview of their nuptials and her thought process behind the curation of her outfits, Jasryn shares, “We got married in Sydney after planning it for almost a year, since we wanted to celebrate both our cultures, i.e., Sikh and Hindu. Hence, when it came to my outfits, I had a very specific vision and theme in mind for all our functions.”
Expressing her vibrant side, Jasryn chose a bright yellow lehenga for her sangeet function that contrasted beautifully with the decor. Studded with mirror work that reflected every light in the room as she twirled with her to-be-husband, this lehenga stole the show with its vibrant hue. To complete the look, the bride chose a shimmery eye look with bold merlot-hued lips. On the jewelry front, an ornate maang tikka and chandbaali earrings added an extra desi chutzpah to the attire.
Sticking to true tradition, Jasryn chose to keep it simple for her Haldi with a mustard yellow salwar kameez and delicate floral jewelry that is traditionally worn by desi brides on this occasion. Keeping her complexion fresh and makeup-free, the happy bride couldn’t stop smiling as she was slathered in haldi to get her pre-wedding glow on.
Flaunting her love for mixing contemporary and conventional styles, Jasryn’s mehndi lehenga was a pastel aqua blue creation with hints of bright peach on the borders. Its off-shoulder tasseled blouse added a dash of bling to her outfit which was also accentuated by a pair of magenta floral earrings adorning her ears. For the makeup, Jasryn chose to play it muted and classic with a warm, earthy look for her eyes paired with a nude lip.
“For my wedding day, I’d always envisioned a pink lehenga and from the moment I set my eyes on this beautiful coral pink piece at the Liz Paul store, I was floored! There are moments when you slip something on, and you know right away if it’s meant for you or not. With this beautiful pink and gold embroidered lehenga, I just knew that this was it! To complete the look, my makeup artist opted for a natural glowing look with a pop of pink on the lips. Also, to complement the intricate gold embroidery on the outfit, I chose a statement maang tikka, jhumkas and necklace.”, shares Jasryn.
“When it came my reception outfit, I had a very specific vision of a body fitted cape design in mind which I pursued quite doggedly. Unfortunately, I had a hard time finding an attire that matched my concept, but I was lucky when I walked into the Juune Couture store, I was truly inspired and found my lehenga in under 30 minutes. The beautiful icy blue creation was absolutely perfect, and it reminded me of Princess Elsa from the movie ‘Frozen’.”, recollects Jasryn.
Adding a final flourish to her look was a minimal Swarovski necklace which she paired with a girly side-parted hairdo.
“Remember to put yourself first and enjoy your wedding week! And even though the temptation to stay up late will be there, it’s essential to get your beauty sleep. Also, make sure you do your research thoroughly beforehand to avoid any last-minute changes. In my case, I used to regularly browse WeddingSutra and drew tons of inspiration and it was an integral tool for my wedding success. My family and friends also pitched in and offered their guidance whenever we went shopping in Delhi.”, shares Jasryn.
