Doesn’t all of this look unreal to you? Weddings are events packed up with an array of emotions that have a dreamy feel to it. I know when I attend a wedding, I always end up feeling touched by this holy mingling of spirits. If ever, I get lost at someone’s wedding, I’m most likely to be found near the mandap listening to the seven vows with my heart beating louder than ever. I wonder what will I do on my wedding day, probably be awestruck with the fact that IT’S HAPPENING!
Anyway, this is the second part of the Wedding Lookbook Series. It was heart warming to see the response I got for the first part (Click here if you haven’t seen the first part of this series yet) of this series. The look in the first part of this series was much heavier in terms of design and clothing, but this time I have made sure that the outfit is wearable and cheap monetarily compared to the first one.
It was one of my sister’s wedding but I couldn’t manage to get myself clicked for the blog. So, I had to get all dressed up later after coming back to Delhi to show you the mix matched lehenga I got stitched for myself. The accessories and the complete outfit was assembled and bought from different places at a very reasonable price.
I was in the Pantaloons store while shopping in Dehradun and the moment I laid my eyes on this skirt, I knew that I was in love with it! I had a feeling that I would easily make something of it with the kind of color and design it had. You can carry it anywhere effortlessly with a pair of a heel as it doesn’t feel heavy at all. The blue color adorning the border of the skirt caught my eye, which is when I decided to buy a blue embroidered cloth from a local shop in Dehradun itself. The blouse, as I imagined perfectly complemented the colors in the outfit. A half-sleeve blouse should be much more detailed with work than this one. Do keep this in mind, if you want to sport a half-sleeved blouse at a wedding. In my case, I planned a quarter-sleeve, so it hardly took me anytime to choose a minute-detailed cloth for the blouse.
There’s absolutely no outfit which is complete without the right accessories. To be very honest, I am quite bored pairing earrings and bangles with wedding outfits. So to break these stereotypes and end my monotony, I chose to couple it with a mirror-worked mang tikka and a colossal crystal ring.
