Urveeskips the big designers and self-designs most of her wedding wear.
Urvee Adhikaari the daughter of business magnate Gautam Adhikari (of SAB TV) married Karan Vyas on 11th December. Urvee, a fashion designer by profession is a great fan of Manish Malhotra and Rohit Bal but she didn’t want to spend huge sums on her wedding wear. She says: I’ve heard most well-known designers charge lakhs for just one wedding creation, and many brides happily pay the same. I think that is a criminal waste of money; I decided not to take the big designer route, and self-design most of my wedding wear.
Urvee and Karans Cocktail and Engagement was held at Novotel, Juhu. The ladies Sangeet & Mehndi at the Adhikaari home in Juhu. The Sangeet at the Marriott and the Wedding and Reception at Taj Lands End. For the Moroccon theme Sangeet at Marriott, Urvee designed a Pakistani anarkali with a net churidar. The kurta had gota work, and the churidar and dupatta both had heavy embroidery.
For the Cocktail, she wore a creation by Babita Malkani‚a blood-red chiffon gown with crystal and pearl embellishments.
For the Pheras, Urvee got an ivory Panetar with a red border‚with kundan work.
For the Reception, Urvee wore a Ballroom-style lehenga with white and crystal embroidery, and filled with can-can for a fluffy effect. She teamed this with a short net choli and an elaborate diamond set from Rajabhai Jewellers.
Urvees makeup and hairstyling for all the functions was done by Ojas Rajani.
