A refreshing color palette and delightful details were the way to go for this bride when it came to her wedding trousseau.
An animal rescue volunteer, Karina Bedi let her wedding be a platform for both philanthropy and fashion. Her well-curated wedding wardrobe retained a sense of femininity as well as allowed her to explore a range of different styles. She shares with us the details of each look.
“My outfits for all the three functions were customized by Maksim by Simran. My experience of working with the brand was exceptional. She was the one who helped me plan all the outfits. All I had to do was tell her my requirements and ideas, and she turned them into reality! My husband and I are both animal welfare and rescue volunteers, so we decided to go for low-key celebrations, and use our wedding budget and ‘shaguns’ (monetary gifts) to help our furry friends instead. Our thought was reflected even in our minimal wedding invites and had a whole leaflet dedicated to animal welfare. It also had a QR code that the invitees could scan to donate at a local animal shelter. The invite was designed by The Mixed Fruit Jam, and I recommend them to everyone who’s getting married.”
“I have a minimalistic style, which is why I stayed away from outfits and accessories that were too bold. I chose soothing colors for all three functions. For the mehndi, I wore an easy-breezy brocade sharara with noodle straps on my blouse. I completed the look with a classic choker and earrings set from Voylla. This was a small function at home, so I decided to do my makeup for this one.”
“The sangeet was a grand pastel-themed event, and I wore a yellow lehenga with mirror work on the skirt and a Disney princess-like blouse. This was paired with a peach cape dupatta that doubled up as the necklace and was inspired by Sonam Kapoor’s look in ‘Veere Di Wedding.’ An interesting element in this outfit was the latkan (dangling tassel) which had details that spelled “Gunjeet Weds Karina.” This is was something that made this ensemble very special to me. My makeup was done by Mannat Gill. I was very particular about having minimal makeup on all three days because I wanted to look as natural as possible. Therefore for this event, we went with glossy peach lips alongside soft brown and gold eyelids.”
“The wedding was a very low key event at the gurudwara, which concluded within 90 minutes. On this day, I wore a dusty rose lehenga with two dupattas and a belt. It had zari embroidery, and sequins work all over along with a sprinkle of burgundy appliqué flowers and pearl embellishments. I matched this with heavy kundan jewellery. Mannat Gill once again took care of my makeup and gave me the lightest rose gold eyelids, a soft contour and highlight, and nude glossy lips. I skipped the mascara and eyeliner on all three days and opted for eyelash extensions instead.”
