Rizwana picked striking, distinctive ensembles for each event at her wedding.
Rooted in tradition but with a subtle, elegant modernity, Rizwana’s bridal trousseau featured classic silhouettes, unconventional colors and beautiful jewellery. Among our favorites were her gorgeous Kanchipuram saree for the mehndi and a lehenga in subtle ivory, gold and pink for the nikaah.
At her pre-mehndi function, Rizwana wore a bandhani half saree but to the temple wedding, the bride showed up totally in tradition. This South Indian bride opted for a Kanchipuram saree with temple jewellery. The outfit, a perfect example of tradition and elegance, was accessorized with statement jewellery including a maang tikka that highlighted the subtle makeup accentuating the bride’s features.
For the Nikaah, Rizwana wore Sabyasachi lehenga in ivory, gold and pink with beautiful embroidery. Soothing tones, detailed design, and intricate threadwork – it was literally her dream outfit brought to life. She accessorized her ensemble with statement jewellery that had a hint of green and added a pop of color to her look. Love is a splendored thing and the bride was the epitome of that in all her elegant looks at her celebrations. For her makeup, she wanted a bridal look but not something that would overpower her features, and her makeup artist Tokala Ravi gave her just the fresh subtlety she wanted.
Glamor and glitz with all things shiny was the order of the evening so Rizwana picked a dazzling peach Sabyasachi lehenga with heavy gold embroidery. With strands of delicate baby’s breath in a bridal bun, Rizwana wore a beautiful dupatta with a delicate border over her head. An assortment of warm lights filled the venue and the whimsical floral patterns looked magical at the reception.
