Miss to Mrs: Day1

I’m sure you’re one of those pretty girls who smile as and when you read the word ‘bride’. The best part is that you’re smiling a bit more now since you have just realized what a transformation you’re going to go through.

Feeling something intensely grave and emotional? Well, here’s when we come to your rescue.
Marriage brings a big change in a woman’s life. As a newlywed bride, she always has a lot of things going on in her mind.

#1. Have I woken up at the right time?

“I hope I have not woken up too late?” You would definitely not want to leave a bad impression in front of your in-laws by getting up quite late in the morning.
Probably this would be the first thing to come in your mind as soon as you will be out of your bed.

#2. OMG, we are actually married!

It becomes impossible to believe that 5 months of crazy wedding planning is over and you are already a Mrs. of Mr. ‘X’

#3. What do I wear?

True you are relieved that you don’t need to wear those heavy lehengas and jewellery but then what do you wear? You can’t go casual nor can you go too gothy.
Well, we hope now you know what else to add to your shopping list.

#4.  This mehendi! Will it ever come off

Especially those who aren’t really fond of it and wore it just for the heck of it, you know-it’s a bride thing!

#5. I am excited about my honeymoon!

Yeaaayy!! The honeymoon is finally here – you are dreaming of your perfect romance dairy.

#6 Can everyone tell we did it last night?

You can’t help but wonder if they are wondering if you did “It” last night!!. That embarrassing situation with all the elders all curious and giggly.

#6 Can I finally meet my girls now!

You can’t wait to unite with your girls to discuss all the juicy bits about ‘THE NIGHT’!

Invitations, decors, budgeting, shopping – you must be going craaaaaazzzyyy with all the planning and managing. To save your time deciding the perfect color, jewelry and styling for your big day – we’ve chosen eight of the  most gorgeous on-screen brides from B-town to get you cues from.

1. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in Jodhaa Akbar

Playing the role of a Rajput queen married to Mughal emperor, Aishwariya wore light make up for her bridal look on-screen. The intricate details on her stunning red lehenga coupled with dazzling heavy jewelry made her seem like a goddess.

2.Madhuri Dixit in Hum Aapke Hai Kaun

Way back in the 90s when brides couldn’t explore more than the usual reds and greens, Madhuri wore an elegant golden lehenga. Her heavily-worked blouse and a flowy satin choli made a perfect match with the gold jewelry studded with exquisite pearls and emerald. To seal the look, she chose a huge nose ring.

3.Preity Zinta in Veer Zaara

If you want a gracious colour, take hints from Preity Zinta in Veer Zaara as a bride where she wears a simple white with shades of plum, green and golden. Embroidery on her dress is matched with the stonework jewelry and minimal makeup.

4.Katrina Kaif in Namastey London

In case you’re planning for a very unconventional shade, go for Katrina’s brief yet noticeable Punjabi wedding in Namastey London. Her rust-coloured lehenga paired up with matching Kundan jewelry gives a serene, non-bling yet graceful bridal look.

5.Kareena Kapoor in 3 Idiots

Kareena carried a heavy brownish-orange Anarkali like a boss in 3 Idiots. Her golden pearl jewelry with those big-sized jhumkis compliment her peachy makeup tone in the scene.

6.Deepika Padukone in Chennai Express

Deepika totally rocked her South-Indian look in Chennai Express donning an orange and red brocade work saree. She teamed it up with gold jewelry and lovely gajras on her hair.

7.Nargis Fakhri in Rockstar

9 Inspirations You Can Take from Deepika Padukone’s ‘Ghoomar’ Look

Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati is definitely the most awaited film of the year scheduled to release on 1st December. The film has hit headlines for a number of reasons but this time it is absolutely welcoming for the team.

The first song of Padmavati, ‘Ghoomar’ is a folk number where Deepika Padukone is seen twirling in circles performing the traditional Rajasthani dance form, has already crossed 10 million views within 24 hours of its release. Choreographed by Kruti Mahesh Midya , the song is stunning in sets, costumes, appearance and more.

          Since the wedding season is here, we’re helping give you goals from Deepika’s extravagant costume and heavy jewelry in the song.

The song is an instant inspiration for wedding planners and designers. Take hints from the exquisite ambience, the elegant costumes, the serene emotions and more.

         Those ghagras and odhnis, the golden jewelry, the booti work, etc. everything you need for an awe-striking wedding.

Here is a list of things we noted while decoding Deepika’s ‘Ghoomar’ look. Choose whatever gives you the ‘season-feels’ for the upcoming party in your circle:

 

1.Colour blocking: The trend of colour blocking or choosing opposite colours on the colour wheel to pair them together for complementary combinations are very much a loved fashion practice. But who thought this could be done so well in bridal lehenga blouses?

2.Gota work: Popularly used for edging sarees and odhnis in Rajasthan, gota work or gota-patti or gota kinari is used to create elaborate patterns. Metals like copper, gold, etc. are used to make designs on dress materials through the applique technique. Use this to border your dupatta or ghagra to add a Rajput touch to your wardrobe.

3.Embroideries: Embroideries have been a part and parcel of Indian wear. Available with a variety of thread or yarn colours, embroidery sometimes incorporates pearls, sequins, and beads too. In Deepika’s look, embroidery has been smartly used to create prints with the help of foil printing that gives it a brocade-like-appearance. Try it for your big day?

4.Metal threadwork: It is also known as goldwork. Gold-coated or polished materials like copper are bound as wires and used as threads to give surface embroidery to fabrics. Metal threadwork can clearly be seen in the blouse and ghagras of costumes in the song. If you’ve got a gang of your favourite girls, get their blouses identically designed to make them feel special on your wedding day!

5.Booti work: Booti work is famously done in ghagra cholis as intricate designs created with multicoloured cotton threads defining the ethinicity of the region it is produced in. This artwork is found in kurtis, churidars and other garments. If you’re gonna don a ‘traditional turban or ‘pagdi’, choose richly coloured fabric with booti work for your entire clan.

6.Polki jewelry: Polki jewelry, which is identical to Kundan is one of the best choices for party wear. Huge dangling earrings or as ‘kamar band’. team it up with your gorgeous wedding outfit and sizzle all the way.

7.Choker set: Chokers are back in fashion. Whether you’re dressing up for a friend’s sangeet or your own sister’s engagement, explore from a range of lace to stone chokers to add an imposing overtone to your personality.

 

8.Layered necklaces: Aiming for a sleek chic look or a rocking retro feel, layered necklaces can be creatively worn with any outfit. Want something new? If you’re planning on backless, beautifully decorate your naked back with a long layered necklace!

9.Matha pattis: One-sided or a kitschy wonder, matha pattis add a lot of sex appeal to your persona. Brides can choose from a range of gold, diamonds, or stone with heavily studded classic matha pattis to complete the look.

          Don’t forget to notice the royal odhni drape in the song that’ll leave guests at your wedding completely mesmerized!
