With wedding season around the corner I am back with some new posts in the 'Wedding Wednesday' series that I have been doing on my blog and this week's post is dedicated to the sister of the bride and I decided to feature a bunch of talented professionals who helped in creating this look with me
Dear Brides-to-be, even if you found your mister, you would still need your sister by your side. She’s the one who’s going to be a major part of your BIG DAY, handling your Bridezilla moments more than anybody else, so why not break the stereotype of just shooting the Pre-Wedding pictures with your Groom-to-be and go for a Bridesmaid Photoshoot? Choosing your bridal party can be equal parts fun and stressful. You want to be surrounded by your best gals, but there's one out of all who plays the role of a leader and isn't it important to acknowledge that? Getting an exclusive photoshoot with your 'Maid of Honour' where she gets a chance to stand out from the bridesmaid squad
How to choose your Maid of Honour?
When it comes to choosing a Maid of Honour, sisters and best friends are the obvious candidates. After all, you need somebody who knows you intimately, who you trust and who can also bring you back down to earth on the odd occasion you need it. Plus, they’re going to be a patient right-hand gal when wedding responsibilities add up or you get overwhelmed and need tissues, or even a hug.
As well as love and trust, time availability is an important factor to consider. When the groom isn’t free – or even when he is – you’re going to want the MOH to join you for activities such as cake tasting or venue hunting, on top of usual responsibilities ranging from dress shopping to planning celebrations such as the hen’s night. So if one of your besties works incredibly long hours that limit her time off, she may be better as a bridesmaid.
Something else you’ll want her input on is deciding themes, colour schemes, reception decorations and more. For this reason, someone who has an eye for style and shares your taste is also a perfect choice.
Finally, if your potential MOH has an existing relationship with the other bridesmaids, that’s wonderful too, because then she can easily direct them as needed to key dates and responsibilities such as hair and make-up trials and jewellery shopping. She’ll also ensure they’re in their best form on the big day to help make it a magical celebration which, after all, is why you have attendants in the first place.
Recently I went to a wedding exhibition and came across this wonderful designer label Pankhuri Jain founded by a talented lady from New Delhi India about 5 years ago, she specialises in crafting indian ethnic designs for modern Indian brides, her design aesthetic is quite fresh and full of pastel colors.
Here's what she says about her brand 'When I summarises about couture label and designer brands in the market then I have a very clear vision, According to me Haute Couture translates as High Sewing and relates to clothing that's been hand made from start to finish and requires a great amount of time to come up with a truly one-of-a-kind piece Where as designer brands translates to Diffusion line that allows designer brands to create more casual and less expensive pieces usually in quantity.”
The price range of her made to order pieces starts from ₹25,000/- whilst the everyday pret collection is little pocket friendly. Her studio is located in Preet Vihar and you can visit her through appointment.
I picked these two outfits as they compliment each other, I love the colours and the style of my lehenga, the ruffles are so in this season and I couldn’t resist choosing these pieces for the shoot.
We opt for simple hairstyle and subtle makeup as it was a day shoot. Styled them with faux flower crown for Nitika and little dainty flowers for me.
For jewellery, we picked some statement pieces,
Nitika is wearing artificial earrings and ring from Soranam Jewels
I’m wearing a diamond necklace from Diamond House
Ladies a pre-wedding shoot with your girls has to be one of the top things to do during your wedding preparations in 2018
