Nisha and Jiten’s grand, fun filled wedding at Sheraton Hua Hin Resort and Spa was a couture coup of sorts. Sporting eye catching haute couture trends combined with personal style and elegance, Nisha looked like a million bucks at every event leading to the culmination at the reception.
Rohit Bal creation on Spanish themed Welcome Dinner
Nisha says, “We were in Delhi when we saw this amazing Rohit Bal creation. When I tried it on, it fitted like a dream. We decided that because of this dress, we HAD to do a Spanish themed dinner – with bright shades of red in the lighting and decor. My team and I decided to go for hair up with rose accents at the bun and bright red lips to go with the theme.”
Bejewelled and Bedazzled for the Youngsters Night
Keeping up with the dress code ‘Bejeweled and Bedazzled’ for the theme Vegas, Nisha wanted to wear the most bejeweled flapper dress. As she puts it, “I commissioned a designer from Philippines Jun Escario to create a dress for me. I knew I wanted to wear gold, and Jun and I sat down for months to create this. The final outcome was more than I could have ever imagined. For hair, we did loose curls and went for heavy eye makeup and nude lips.”
Tarun Tahiliani concept sari for Japanese themed Mehndi
Nisha wore a stunning Tarun Tahiliani sari for her ‘Floral Fujiyama’, Japanese themed Mehndi tea party that perfectly fitted the theme. “The Mehndi party was outdoors so I wanted to wear something really light, with almost no embroidery. I was really lucky to find that concept sari. It was pre-stitched, which meant it was simple and comfortable. We added an emerald belt to break the color in between and went for a very modern ethnic look. Makeup was light and natural.”
Anjalee and Arjun pink and ivory lehenga for Sangeet
Nisha’s lehenga for Sangeet was a digital print ivory base with hints of pink, blue and green. The blouse was pink with a bejeweled transparent back. Nisha says, “I saw this outfit at Anjalee and Arjun’s store and I knew I had to wear it. The color and the work on the skirt were spectacular, something very different from everything else that I had seen. After collaborating with the designers to put more work on the skirt and a new design for the blouse, we came to this final product. I wore my hair half-up and went heavy on the eyes and light on the lips.”
Comfortable yet stylish jumpsuit for beach party
Nisha collaborated once again with Jun Escario to create a modified jumpsuit that was perfect mix of style and comfort. Says Nisha, “We agreed on a silver gray lace material for the top and shorts and applied tiny Swarovskis all over. The result was stunning. Bejeweled waist on the shorts added more sparkle.”
Bridal Lehenga By Tarun Tahiliani
Nisha wanted to look traditional yet have that striking element in the outfit. “When I came across this bridal lehenga by Tarun Tahiliani, my search was immediately over. It had a mint green blouse, and a shaded lehenga that was lighter at the top and darker at the bottom. There was a beautiful velvet border on the waist, and although the work at the bottom was very traditional, there were hints of turquoise- completely fun and unexpected. The dupatta was a very heavy shaded Ivory color with big borders all around, and when draped, it completed the outfit. I chose a very light champagne-color veil to cover the head. Gold belt tied across my waist pulled the whole look together.” The makeup was kept very natural and she did a soft-side ponytail to complement the look.
One-of-a-kind couture creation by Jun Escario for Reception
When Jun Escario and Nisha again got together for this outfit, the result had to be ‘out of the world’. Nisha says, “It was a strapless one-of-a-kind couture creation that blew me away while in the process of creating it. We decided on a mermaid-style silhouette with a cinched waist. They commissioned people to hand embroider the pieces, on which they then individually sewed Swarovskis. After all the Swarovski appliques were done, Jun made me wear the base of the dress, and while I was wearing it he placed each and every applique on the dress. It was a very long and tiresome process for all of us, but it was certainly worth it. Multiple fittings and appliques then resulted into this beautiful masterpiece.”
