From looks that spelled ease and comfort to those that were about traditional elegance, Pratibha’s trousseau covered it all.
Pratibha tied the knot with Aditya in a glorious wedding celebration in Ranthambhore. Beautifully captured by WeddingSutra Favorite ShutterDown, the bride shares some interesting tidbits about her different bridal looks at every function.
The festivities began with presents! At the godbharai ceremony, the bride’s lap is piled high with gifts. To this traditional function, the bride wore a beautiful red silk saree and a gold necklace set. Pratibha says, “My hair and makeup artist for all the functions was Kajol R Paswwan who did an excellent job with the makeup looks especially this one, since it was simple and elegant.”
“I wore a lehenga designed by mom for this ceremony. My mother has been stitching lehengas and outfits for me since I was little. I’d always wanted to wear one of her designs for one of the celebrations so she designed a beautiful pink lehenga for this day. I paired the ensemble with floral jewellery from Chandni Chowk.”
“To the sangeet, I wore a bright yellow lehenga from Frontier Bazaar in Karol Bagh. This one was definitely my favorite! I love the color yellow and the lehenga was just so perfect and bright complementing the vibe at the sangeet night. My Polki choker set finished the elegant bridal look.”
“I kept it minimal and real for this function. I wore a simple outfit designed by my mom with statement earrings and a heavy set of bangles.” One can never go wrong with fresh blooms at a wedding and the beautiful floral arrangements at the venue made for a vibrant backdrop. Pratibha kept her look very natural which went with the entire aesthetic.
“I wanted to wear something other than red because it is so common on brides at weddings. I love the way mint and pink play off each other and the combination on my lehenga was lovely. I also thought it would be perfect for our autumn wedding.” The ‘mathapatti’ (forehead ornament) and necklace she wore added to her regal vibe while her makeup was all about highlighting the eyes alongside a subtle, soft look. Whether it was love or happiness or make up, Pratibha’s face was aglow all through the function.
To the reception, the bride wore a navy blue lehenga from Frontier Bazaar. She was going for glamour and felt like a star ready to walk the red carpet that evening!
Advice for brides-to-be
“Let your natural glow lead the way when deciding your make up and pick saturated, bright tones for your clothes, skip the dull palettes. Remember, your clothing and makeup and hairstyle all make up your final look. So invest as much time in finding the right makeup artist as picking your trousseau. You need someone who understands you and what you require. And don’t pay hefty amounts to makeup artists because you think that will incentivize them. Check their work, see if it matches what you want. And of course, book them way in advance to make sure you get the one you want.”
