There is nothing like a stylish sister of the bride. While she does all the pre-planning work, she also manages to shine through the wedding week. Meet Vaibhavi, a professional singer whose outfits we simply loved! She picked the most unusual colours and stayed away from all bridal hues – each more unique than the others. To let’s hear it from her on this journey through all her looks fabulously clicked by The Picture Factory
As a singer, I perform at various events and live occasions so the main motive while selecting all my outfits was – I have to be able to re-use them! I am not the kind of person who would buy something beautiful and expensive and have it lying at the back of my closet.
Look 1 – Lagan Lakhvanu
I picked a jumpsuit for two reasons – stylish and fuss-free. I wore this beautiful dusky pink Shruti Ranka jumpsuit which was so easy to wear and carry. Since it was a small function wanted to keep only outfit super chic and comfortable to carry. Plus it’s super-wearable for other occasions too. I did the hair and makeup myself since it was a smaller event than the rest!
Look 2 – Mamera
The first thing that caught my eye about this outfit was the frill dupatta! I saw in an exhibition and picked this beautiful Nisha Ajmera outfit. I saw Alia Bhatt in a yellow Sabyasachi and knew that the colour would be a total hit! Again an outfit that I could re-use for my singing performance which was light yet the colour made it so strikingly bold!
Look 3 – Mehendi
Ever since it was decided that my sister was getting married I knew this is what I wanted to wear for her mehendi. This style, this silhouette! She had a colour theme for her mehendi - yellows paired with beige and whites. And I as the sister of the bride I followed it to the T! I found this outfit at Caipiroska, again in an exhibition which I fell in love with. I love the fact that this outfit is so versatile. You can wear the pants with another crop top or wear the cape on a different dress – it’s so wearable! While brides usually go for all floral jewellery, I went ahead with a floral hand bracelet which perfectly complimented the look. I finished the whole look with heeled juttis. Pooja from Lipstick Diary did my makeup and hair.
Look 4 – Cocktail and Sangeet
Given the fact that this was a night event, I wanted a dark colour so I went ahead with this beautiful Chamee and Palak grey lehenga. Loved how the blouse had statement sleeves! This outfit was originally in gold but they customised this for me – which I loved!
Look 5 – Wedding Reception
Funnily, this was the first outfit I picked! On a crazy rainy day, I visitedTamanna Punjabi Kapoor s store and within 20 minutes, we were done! This was one impulsive buy, and it worked like magic. I wanted a teal-bluish hue for the wedding and when I saw this outfit I knew that it was it. I had found it!
Personally I am extremely particular about my hair and makeup, especially eye makeup so I knew what I exactly wanted. I wanted all my hairstyles to be simple yet stylish which would be easy to carry off. Initially I was sceptical about the mehendi hairstyle since it was a garden venue – but Pooja and her team did a fab job! All my footwear was from Stoffa at Kala Khoda and all jewellery was made by our family jeweller.
