The Shaadi/Wedding Look
Lehenga and Dupatta : Vintage | Blouse : Tailored | Bangles : Gifted | Earrings : Local Market | Necklace : Mom’s
I am super excited about part II of the wedding diaries. I hope you have checked out the Part I, which is a Mehandi/sangeet look. Check out the Wedding Diaries, Part I here. This look is a typical Indian Wedding look about what I wore it to my best friend’s wedding. I fell in love with this Indian Pink Raw Silk Lehenga the minute I saw it, it has pearl, dabka, zari and zardozi work amalgamated together along with bits of sequence here and there. Vintage is love. This lehenga makes a statement and that too a vintage one. The dupatta has beautiful hand embroidery at the borders. Since I wanted to keep the whole look vintage, I got a high neck and 3/4th sleeve raw silk blouse tailored matching the lehenga.
I kept the makeup pretty simple with a bright pink lipstick and thick black eye-liner. After doing a lot of research (read googling) on vintage wedding looks, I went for middle parted hair with a low bun at the back. I wanted to add a white mogra gajra to my bun but I was running late so I did not have the time to buy one therefore I added this golden ghunghru bangle to my hair, which looked super quirky and held my hair in place and I ended up getting several compliments for it. I added a Rajasthani Maang Tikka called “Borla” to my middle parted hair and twisted sections of hair from both sides and made a low bun at the back.
I went over-the-top with the jewelry as my blouse was pretty simple. I added golden jhumkas that I brought from my local market and my mom’s traditional gold choker with pink pearls. Indian weddings are all about over-the-top-dressing and I love everything that’s over the top and blingy . It is often suggested that if you wear a heavy/statement necklace, you should avoid heavy earrings but I did wear the heavy jhumkas and a heavy gold choker and it blended together perfectly. It’s all about how you style it. I love how all these elements, the heavy vintage lehenga and the heavy jewelry complimented each other perfectly. I did justice to my vision of a vintage wedding look, what do you think?
