It's been a hectic week at the WMG office - new things are coming our way so we are gearing up heavily. But in all the madness, we wont forget to tell you: Here are our 6 top things you should know to be one helluva informed bride this week.
1. Palm Rings For The Experimenting Bride
The “it” accessory of the season, the ‘Palm Cuff’ from the house of Minawala is making a statement on the runway and off the runway too. The latest limited edition line of dazzling and dramatic palm cuffs are called ‘THE DREAM, obviously made specially for the sophisticated, global, contemporary bride. What's the palm cuff? The palm cuff is an extended edgier, avant garde version of the haath phool, a traditional hand harness with a ring attached which is mostly worn by the brides. Made with diamonds in 18K white gold, this one's gonna be a stunner we tell you.

3. Manish Malhotra Concentrates On Groomwear ( Men, Pls Get On The Bandwagon!)
So you do know that our dear Manish has now slowly started concentrating on menswear slowly but surely. He has realised that while brides get all the #maj attention, dudes are left behind to fend for themselves with cheap knock-offs and tacky designs. Time for change my friends! At the special preview of his upcoming Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2015 show collection – The Gentlemen’s Club at the Li Bai, Palladium Hotel today, Manish made sure his new Lakme collection went all the way to the dapper groom - it is a festive fusion of Indian and western couture, focusing on shades of emerald green and adorned with botanical motifs. And who's gonna be the showstopper? Our homeboy Ranbir Kapoor! This offsite show will take place at Mehboob Studio for the first time on August 26
