TREASURES OF INDIAN WEDDINGS (PART 1: LEHENGAS)

When you think of the usual Big Fat Indian weddings, a few names come to mind that have changed the course of weddings for the brides. From jewellery to lehengas to stylists, let’s explore the treasures of each section of Indian weddings for you to make a decision smoothly.
1) Sabyasachi (duh): Royal, elegant and classy AF!
Let me just start by saying that if there’s a Beyonce of the Lehenga world, it is SABYASACHI. I’ll be honest with you, whenever they post something on Instagram; I take a good 10 minutes staring at the pieces in awe. How can someone create something so beautiful? In fact, beautiful is too shallow a word to describe how I feel about his collection. I mean with the diverse colour palette, innovative designs, choice of fabrics, a touch of ethnicity, and most of all, his understanding of art makes his work too good to be true.
Straight up, Sabyasachi’s the real reason why I wanna get married someday and my parents should totally thank him every day for that.
To make heads turn and make everyone talk about how stunning of a bride you make, you should totally go for this ace designer. Indian weddings won't be Indian weddings anymore without him.

2) Manish Malhotra: Always making girls drool
He is definitely Bollywood’s most loved Fashion designer and is known for his gorgeous ensembles in Traditional Indian colours, his new-age designs with some Indian touch for the modern brides-to-be and his embroideries that steal our hearts away. We promise you, making a stunning and glamorous bride comes effortlessly. That’s Manish Malhotra for you.
“I feel an actress’s life is never complete if she doesn’t walk for Manish Malhotra once," says Alia Bhatt. 
And we couldn’t agree more, Bhatt.

3) Anita Dongre: Filled to the brim with ethnicity
Known for her embroideries, vibrant colours and the signature gota and thread work, Anita Dongre is a well-known name for exquisite creations coupled with brimming royalty. Speaking of royalty, the duchess of Cambridge chose one of her Bohemian dresses during her stay in India making this designer oh so famous!

4) Anamika Khanna: The rebel of the fashion world?
Anamika Khanna has to be the ideal choice if you’re looking to stay away from the traditional reds and pink, and are in for a bold and glamorous statement. Her creative designs turn heads and are definitely the perfect fit for a chicMehandi night or a cocktail party. She’s one designer who can mix bold and subtlety (such contrasting features) effortlessly. My favourite HAS to be the fabulous Dhoti Saree concept, which is oh-so-unique and oh-so-stunning!
Sonam Kapoor, the girl who can never go wrong with her dressing sense (kudos to Rhea Kapoor though) is spotted numerous times in AK!

5) Tarun Tahiliani: Stunning silhouettes
Another one of Bollywood’s fav, Tahiliani’s work basically revolves around neutral palettes and then saturating vibrant borders along with heavy work like Zari, Chiankari and Swarovski crystals. His uniqueness comes from impeccable silhouettes, colour combinations and draping styles which we are a fan of! His creations just shout 'made to rock Indian weddings' all over.

WEDDING LANTERNS THAT BEST SUIT YOUR WEDDING

"  Wedding Lanterns are the most romantic form of expressing our love"
Wedding Lanterns look absolutely lovely during the night or even during the evening hours for all styles of weddings. You can simply hang them from trees or ceilings or even from the shepherd’s hooks. You can use them on the windowsills and even around steps, walls, the entrance ways and also as the centerpieces. They look stunning when lit at night or when filled with flowers during the day hours. They do double the beauty as both the decoration and the lighting. What’s not to love in them? So get that pin finger all ready and check out these gorgeous photos which we discovered just for you to best suit the lantern that will suit your style on your wedding day.

 1. PAPER WEDDING LANTERNS

The paper wedding lanterns are extremely economical and also very pretty and add a soft touch to your favourite wedding décor. They even work well preferably for an outdoor setup. They look extremely stunning when lots of them are hung at different heights. There are many ways to string them; you could hang them either individually at varying heights or by stringing them in a mesh or simply in a row. Either way, they will look absolutely stunning! Another great idea is to carefully dress up the usually basic paper lantern. Working on the color based on your theme, dressing up them with flowers, origami… getting creative all the way enhances its beauty.

2. OIL WEDDING LANTERNS

Oil wedding lanterns are an old school, but a great option in case you are on a budget constraint as these are not very expensive. Also, they can add a vintage touch to your ordinary décor and the lighting is also good enough. We like the way they have been used in the picture below. It looks so beautiful and unique. We highly recommend it.

3. METAL  WEDDING LANTERNS

Metal wedding lanterns look both elegant and chic and are a perfect way to add natural lighting to your function. We love the ones in the picture below. If you use these lanterns throughout the house, your house will get that touch of beauty with elegance and of course lots of lights. They can even be hung or just placed around the venue.
