We always love getting to know all the stores brides visit to put together their bridal wardrobe and Real Bride Kamakshi was sweet enough to give a break down of all her wedding outfits- right from how she picked it and where to how much it cost! Over to Kamakshi now, who got married to the love of her life Aviral recently, and managed to plan her wedding in India sitting all the way across the world in Germany!
I wanted my morning wedding bridal outfit to be different from the typical reds and oranges and thus went for the pink and blue combination. This gamble did pay off, as a lot of people complimented me saying that my outfit had a lovely play of colours. I customized and modified all my outfits, so all my outfits have my personal touch. I thought I know best which colours and fabrics look good on me and put together my outfits accordingly.

I had a solo dance performance on the Sangeet and this was also going to be a super fun night with lots of music and drinks. So I wanted something very manageable which wasn't heavy. I decided that nothing would stand out more on stage than red, and this was the first criteria when I went out shopping for my Sangeet outfit. Benarasi silk came across as a fabric that had its own rich shine and sparkle without any additional embellishments, and it was not heavy either. But since I was the bride, I had to take this lehenga a notch up and added a thick sparkly border to the lehenga, blouse, and duppata. And that did it, I loved how the outfit turned out and best part it is very reusable, I can easily mix and match it with crop tops and full length skirts.

Vedika proved to be the backbone of our wedding planning. Since my family is based in Delhi and the wedding was in Goa she took care of all the local and wedding arrangements effortlessly. all the wedding events went off very well and smoothly. It felt like Vedika never slept because she answered to all our queries within 15 minutes no matter what time of the day it was. She is a thorough professional and It was a pleasure to work with her.
