During the growing years, every girl dreams of having a perfect wedding. However, when she gets married, it is the right time for her to materialise her dreams into reality. From choosing the perfect outfit for her wedding day to the makeup, coordinated jewellery, and shoes, the bride wants to make heads turn through her ensemble. And when she gets to design her own outfit, then nothing like that.
While a girl also has some expectations about her life partner. Therefore, she makes no compromises in her wedding plans, when she finally comes across him. Though the thought of her whole life-changing after the marriage, makes her nervous, it is love for her prince charming that makes her overcome this fear. Every bride thinks of adding something unique to her wedding ensemble so that people remember it for years. Whether it is replacing a three-tier kaleera or doli kaleera with the normal one or playing with colours when it comes to one's wedding outfit.
Meet our bride of the week, Shloka Khialani. For the uninitiated, Shloka is a designer by profession and is the owner of a fashion label named after herself. Therefore, it is quite obvious, that the girl, who has gifted some of the best couture's to her clients would leave no stone unturned to design the best outfit for her own wedding. She tied the knot with the love of her life, Siddhant Nahata. Though the couple is based in Mumbai, for their wedding, they decided to opt for a destination wedding and got married in the mountains.
While scrolling through our Instagram feeds, we came across this beautiful couple, Shloka and Siddhant, who got married at the JW Marriott Mussoorie Walnut Grove Resort. Just like any other bride and groom, pictures from their jaimala ceremony are worth melting one's heart. And the entire decor and colour combination was so soothing to the eyes that it was difficult to look away from it. Also, the picture of her prince charming, planting a peck on her cheek is pure couple goals.
While everything about the wedding was surreal, it was her outfit that stole away all the limelight. Since our bride is a designer herself, she did not rely on any big brand to get her dream wedding ensemble. Instead, she custom-made it according to her own choice and preferences. Ditching the conventional idea that a bride has to wear a red attire on her wedding or she can not wear white, the bride designed a white lehenga for her D-Day.
Shloka's wedding lehenga had intricate embroidery all over with silver zari, and she had kept the blouse in full-length sheer sleeves. Even her veil in white is worth appreciating. The bride had completed her look with a heavy neckpiece, earrings, kaleeras and a maang teeka. She also complemented her look with pastel-coloured bangles. For the makeup, she kept it minimal and looked absolutely pretty. On the other hand, her groom, Siddhant Nahata, wore a white and orange-hued sherwani from his ladylove's fashion label itself.
For her wedding, a bride not just thinks about her own self but also about her best friends, who would be her bridesmaid for the special day of her life. From arranging the best mehendi designs for them to making sure that the makeup artist gives equal importance to them, a bride has to make sure of all of it. As Shloka headed towards the mandap, it was her bridesmaids, who had caught our attention. For the most special day, Shloka chose to design an ivory lehenga for herself while she dressed all her bridesmaids in beautiful shades of pink, all custom-made to express her love for each one of them.
Don't you think that Shloka Khialani's wedding lehenga is unique? Also, the whole decor and the outfits add a tint of white weddings even in traditional Indian marriages. What do you think? Let us know!
