A Gorgeous wedding in Chandigarh with tons of style

That outfit - LOVE !
From the bride: For the Sangeet, we chose an outdoor venue and kept it to minimal draping. We instead highlighted the lawn , trees and pool area with twinkling fairy lights and candles, mirror strings and marigold - transforming it into a glorious candle lit, Indian garden roomFor my outfit, I did not want something absolutely traditional neither something completely like a ball room gown. I spoke to Sabyasachi and we decided upon a floor length embellished outfit in an ombre pink and bronze with a cut out back. The gold sequin and mirror work looked great for the night event and since it was a high neck, I skipped the heavy necklaces and just wore a passa . We had a day wedding, so we wanted the colour of drapes and decor to be muted or pastels. We spread out gazebo like structures around the lawn, and had an almost English vintage feel with wooden boards, a central fountain and the peach and cream color scheme. Another area that really took the guests' attention was the 'CANDY CORNER' which was close to the entrance, where we had one of the best bakers 'Monica's' have a display of various french pastries and sweets, that guests could also take back home in boxes. My friends also made these DIY cones with flower petals for guests to shower us with. Because ours was a day wedding, I was certain that I did not want to wear red or a fuchsia but a peach or an orange tone. When I told Sabyasachi this, he called for this outfit, and just as he was pulling it out of the bag, I knew it was perfect. The long shirt had beautiful gold running work on sleeves and all over, and the lehenga skirt had delicate thread work. The dupatta had delicate sequins sprinkled across it- it was love at first sight. For my jewellery, I definitely did not want to go with the regular white polki necklaces everyone was wearing, so picked a combination of gold and polki and added emeralds to my tikka for the dash of colour. I was also extremely particular about my nath. This was a Sabyasachi runway style nath, and it was perfect, not too big to cover your face and not too plain either. It had delicate gold carving with South-sea pearls.
