For a woman, getting married is the biggest decision. It not only changes her last name but also her home, parents and her life choices, every decision she makes, revolves around her new role of being a wife and a daughter-in-law. While life after marriage is tough, getting married is also not a child's play. The journey of being 'Miss-to-Mrs' is filled with a lot of emotions, love and shopping.
The pandemic has changed the way we Indians look at weddings. The lavish arrangements have turned into intimate gatherings. However, it has given a chance for couples to enjoy their best days to the fullest without worrying about 'rishtedaar kya kahenge'. We have seen brides creating trends with their outfits to their performances, and the bride of the week is no different.
Meet the bride of the week, Mehal Kejriwal, who had tied the knot in a lavish ceremony with the love of her life, Jophy. The couple had dreamy wedding celebrations, respecting each other's traditions. The bride and the groom had hosted two grand ceremonies — a Christian wedding in the palace and a Hindu ceremony at Suryagarh palace in Jaisalmer.
The couple had hosted a special pre-wedding function called Malwari. For which, they had twinned in white ensembles. However, it was the bride's look that had taken our hearts away. The bride had picked a beautiful an-all white Lucknowi lehenga from the label, Aastha Narang, and given us the banjara vibes. On the other hand, her groom had worn a matching white kurta-pyjama with mirror-work.
Another highlight of the bride's look was her 82-year-old jewellery, which she had gotten from the heirs of those who collect Rajputani jewellery. She had styled her look with 82 years old silver borla and statement maharani haar.
She had styled her look with an oxidised nath and handcuff bangles. She had opted for kohl-filled eyes with white eyeshadow, highlighted cheeks and nude lips. Her look was completed with hair adorned with strings of Mangalorean Jasmine flowers.
For the Hindu wedding ceremony, the bride had donned a Rajasthani poshak from the label, Rimple and Harpreet. It had featured a red kali skirt with golden zari-work, a matching full-sleeved choli and heavy dupatta tucked beautifully over her open hair.
The bride had styled her look with statement rani haar, matching earrings, a two-layered borla and a nath. She had also donned chooda and heavy kaleeras. Subtle makeup with soft smokey eyes and nude lips had completed her look.
For the white wedding, the bride had picked a beautiful white-coloured gown with a long trail. She had styled her look with a long veil and a diamond necklace. Subtle makeup and hair styled in heavy curls had added more charm to the bride's look. On the other hand, her groom had looked dapper in a black tuxedo.
We love the bride's wedding looks! Which one was your favourite? Let us know!
