BY Sakshi Saxena | 12 Mar, 2018
We love a bride who wears gorgeous outfits on her wedding, but one who wears gorgeous shoes? Even more! Real Bride Sneha wanted to look like a princess at her fort wedding, and that she did- with some stunning outfits and drool-worthy shoes that really complemented her look! And would you believe if we told you that the bride did her makeup herself for every function? Yes, over to super bride Sneha now as she tells us all about her outfits and those amazing shoes for her wedding #wifeofpai! We fell in love with her wedding photos as well- shot so well by the talented Simran from PhotozAapki !
Meet Sneha & Avinash
Sagan & Mehendi: Deep Blue Lehenga with Blue Jimmy Choos
"I bought it from Frontier Bazar . I wanted to go for a very princess look, lots of pearls, Navratan jewelry, girly makeup. I didn't want to wear typical yellow or orange for this function as its quite typical. I went for royal blue which I feel went with the whole theme of the function - in a Fort, we even served royal Rajasthani food. I bought my jewelry from Dubai, I found this beautiful navratan haar with pearls, I hadn't seen any bride wear that before. I felt it was perfect for the occasion like Mehendi - fun, girly and very princessy :) "
Wedding: Burnt Pink Gota Patti Lehenga with Shimmery Green & Pink Louboutins
"I hunted and hunted and hunted for the perfect wedding lehenga. I went to every shop possible in Delhi and didn't find anything I hadn't seen before. Finally, I went to this boutique, Anarkali Karol Bagh and I saw a lehenga design which was absolutely beautiful - it was simple gota patti work, but was in bottle green color (a colour I didn't want to wear for my wedding). I gave it a good thought and asked for a burnt pink color and teamed it with mint green dupatta to give that fresh feel for a day wedding. My jewelry was bought all from Dubai - Polki with red hue which I felt looked royal and simple. Shoes were my obsession, I found these beautiful Christian Louboutins in Dubai which had a tint of green and pink glitter (just meant to be)"
Cocktail: Customised Green Off Shoulder Gown with Matching Strappy Jimmy Choos
"My husband wanted me to look like a superhero, which was the theme of the party. I went for a gown which was something bold, something different, something which is simple yet makes a statement. I got it custom designed from a Lebanese designer here in Dubai - Yasmine Hawa. It took us 8 weeks of designing, trials, and fittings to get it right. The gown had a thigh-high slit, was form fitting and I teamed it with a gold belt. I also got a cape custom made with the gown to perform on a superhero song ;). I didn't want to go with the usual gowns that we see brides wear on cocktail or reception, I wanted it to be very western yet suited for the occasion. Since the slit was quite high, shoes had to be the most important part of the look (since I wasn't wearing any jewelry or other accessories). Luck had it that I found Jimmy Choos of the exact same colour as my gown. I felt they complimented so well with the whole look."
