Rimple & Harpreet Narula x MehndiTuesday, December 06, 2016
Festivities and lights are the flavour of the month. With many of us still nostalgic from all the 'shor sharaba' which the Diwali season brought in, it's now time to prep for this year's shaadi season. Wedding is one of the biggest festivals in the Indian community. Ever heard of the big fat Indian wedding? It's true! We Indians like to celebrate the happy day with full masti and swag. The wedding celebrations usually last 4-5 days. Its starts from Cocktail/Sangeet, then comes the Mehendi followed by the main Shaadi function.
With so many functions comes the stress of finding those perfect outfits. Every occasion has a special meaning attached to it and if you're a girl reading this, you've gone through the hassle of finding a good Indianwear boutique atleast once in your life. I remember those endless visits to Shahput Jaat when my cousin was getting married. What an absolute nightmare it was! Even though online shopping has made our lives a lot more easier today but I still feel nothing compares to the tactile feeling of trying your Indian outfit at a physical store. The drapes, the falls and the fit is the key to finding or rather investing in a good outfit.
This post is for all the lovely ladies who love the Shaadi season but can never decide what to wear for that upcoming Punjabi wedding. Now that we are done with the first function which is the Cocktail/Sangeet, let's move to Mehndi. It is my most favourite of them all. From the beautiful colours to the vibrant decor, it's just a really happy and cheerful place to be in. Now how do you decide what to wear? This depends on a number of factors like mehndi is usually a day function? How do you want to dress up? If there is a particular style you have in mind? When I pick my outfit for the Mehndi, I usually go for an Anarkali or a patiala suit in bright colours. I feel they are perfect for this function and go well with all the flower jewellery.
In this post I am wearing a Rimple and Harpreet Narula creation. The designer duo are one of my most favourites. Their garments are so intricately embroidered and they fit like a dream. I first discovered the duo at the India Couture Week 2014 and instantly fell in love with their designs. I love how every single piece has it's own story to tell. This bright yellow anarkali was a gorgeous fit. I fell in love especially with the Mukeish dupatta. The dupatta with it's metallic fringes add that extra zing to the whole outfit and make it look dressier. You can shop this look from their Defence colony outlet. Bright colours for Mehndi paired up with heavy earrings is my all time favourite look for this occasion.
