For a girl, getting married is not just another tick off from her life's checklist, but rather it is the most important thing. The process is filled with wedding jitters, bridezilla moments, and a volcano of emotions. After all, leaving your parents' home in order to create your own world is not at all easy. But from a very young age, every girls' parents train them right and instil in their hearts with the idea that one day, they will leave their house.
To kickstart this beautiful chapter of her life, every bride-to-be has a plethora of ideas. They plan every teeny-tiny detail of their wedding and pre-wedding functions, in their mind, well in advance. While some brides choose to follow the traditional lane, there are some, who listen to their heart's calling and opt for hatke wedding details. And our bride of the week is from the latter category.
Getting married in times of the pandemic is not at all easy. However, two hearts in love shall not stay away from each other for longer. Hence, our bride of the week, Tripat Kang, had tied the knot with her beau, Rehmat Singh, in Manali amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. The couple had an Anand Karaj ceremony, which was organised on the hills of Manali at her holiday home. The bride had even designed her own wedding invites.
For the wedding, the bride had opted for a whimsical pink lehenga from House of Kotwara, which was customised especially for her. Talking about the dream lehenga, the official page of the designer revealed that the bride wanted her wedding outfit to be something that she can use and cherish time and again and not store away in a forgotten cupboard. And every detail was beautifully captured by Sutej Pannu.
On the other hand, her groom had picked a cream-coloured sherwani, which he had styled with a matching turban and a pink-hued doshala. The duo had complemented each other. Talking about how love had brewed between them, the designer had shared the bride's story on their Instagram page, "What started off as a number exchange orchestrated by family friends, lead to a bowling date in Chandigarh. An instant spark started an adventure- from strolls in London, sunsets in Mallorca, an evening in Amsterdam and finally a proposal on a mountain top in Kullu two years late".
The bride had ditched the traditional red chooda and had donned a unique white one, which perfectly matched her pink-hued lehenga. Her look was accentuated with silver kaleeras. However, the best part about her entire look was her minimalistic jewellery set. The jewellery set was of her grandmother, which was passed down to her.
Her grandmother had received the set as a wedding present from her father-in-law, Sardar Baldev Singh. He was the first defence minister of India and had a great eye for detail. The set was made in the 1950s in Bombay using old mine cut diamonds from Golconda and Burmese rubies set in an Art Deco style.
Well, we love our bride's heirloom jewellery set passed to her by her grandmother. What's your thoughts on wearing your parents' heirloom jewellery or ensemble for the wedding day?
'One day a prince will come to take you home, with him you will feel complete and will make your own happily ever after.' This is the story every girl grows up listening to. From a young age, they are taught that they have to leave their parents' home after marriage, andRead More
