Sister Of The Bride Style: Meet Aishwarya!
BY Sakshi Saxena | 27 Nov, 2018
We are always on the lookout for an amazingly dressed sister of the bride who can dole out some inspiration, and this time we have one who nailed the perfect sister look in almost every function! And yes, she also does happen to be a Miss India finalist! We especially loved her look for the wedding day- it was so pretty in white, and with a very unique blouse which stood out! So over to Aishwarya now, as she takes us through her different 'sister of the bride' looks!
My sister’s wedding in Kolkata was intended to be a relatively short Indian wedding, with two major days being the Sangeet which we themed as a Sufi Night, and the Wedding day itself. My sister is super into makeup, and since the time she was a teen she knew she wanted to do her own makeup on her big day. So that’s what happened, she did her own make up and mine as well! I just did the base and the rest was all her. I feel like no one does my makeup as well as her :)
Look 1: The Engagement
The engagement was a bash/cocktail party to celebrate both the families and the couple. My outfit was simple and easy to move and dance around in. I also opted for black, which is rather rebellious in regards to an Indian wedding, so I thought I’d rather incorporate it during the engagement, than at the wedding. It’s a black draped dress with a bodice full of Gaurav Gupta’s signature work. It came with a black dupatta too, to add the Indian touch. I added a pair of statement earrings and bangles stacked in one hand. I purchased the Gaurav Gupta outfit from The Rack by Kachins, Dubai.
Look 2: The Mehendi
It was a very close knit family get together, and knowing I had to do quite a lot of running around and dancing, I opted for a simple baby pink Chikankari salwar suit and paired with with gold balis and bangles. I wanted to keep it simple and easy going.
Look 3: Sangeet (Sufi Night)
On this evening, I wore a lehenga made by a Kolkata based designer Shradha Manaktala. I chose a yellow blouse with hand embroidery and sequins, paired with a mint green floral lehenga skirt. With this, I wore a Navratna necklace which is very special to me because it belongs to my Mom! Had my hair down in loose curls and that’s it!
Look 4: The Wedding
My sister was the most beautiful bride in traditional red and gold. So I wanted to go for a contrast to her and look subtle yet elegant. I wore a lehenga by Mani Bhatia, which was purchased from Citrine - The Multi Designer Store . The hues were very subtle, a very light baby pink with intricate and delicate handwork with green and copper sequins and mirror work. Tied my hair in a bun and put Juhi flowers all around it (Juhi flowers were a major theme of the wedding decor), teamed that with my Mother’s diamond jhumkas, a maangtika and some bangles.
The blouse had a fully sequinned choker of its own, so I didn’t have to wear a necklace!
