If you’ve been following on us on Instagram, you probably know all about our big collaboration with Khush magazine and Sonam Kapoor. The magazine roped in the mega star/fashionista for their anniversary cover and dressed her in exquisite couture from yours truly! Wearing the season’s choicest picks from Aashni + Co, Kapoor’s looks are all the inspiration you need for the wedding season. We break it down for you with some handy takeaways for the summer bride-to-be.
MEHNDI INSPIRATION FROM SONAM KAPOOR
The mehndi is the perfect function to experiment with your wardrobe and add some variety to the cuts you sport as a bride. A dhoti pant set—one with a smart embroidered jacket—is ideal for the fashion-forward bride. Skip the ubiquitous floral jewellery and go dramatic with your traditional heirlooms.
SANGEET INSPIRATION FROM SONAM KAPOOR
A summer wedding wardrobe is indeed incomplete without some florals. Dance the night away in this hand-painted, hand-printed Sabyasachi lehenga, that is a refreshing take on bridal dressing. Pile on the jewellery for maximum impact. Burning the dance floor on your sangeet night has never been easier.
PHERAS INSPIRATION FROM SONAM KAPOOR
The modern Indian bride isn’t afraid of venturing beyond bridal red for her wedding outfit. A delicate lehenga in subdued colours is a fitting choice for a princess-like look that is equal parts restrained and head-turning. This Sabyasachi lehenga from the Udaipur collection is just what the Indian bride 2.0 will find herself drawn too. Add a nath and matha patti to complete the look.
RECEPTION INSPIRATION FROM SONAM KAPOOR
Save the gown for your cocktail night. Go traditional for your reception but add a dose of contemporary drama by skipping the dupatta and opting for an handwork crop top style blouse. This Payal Singhal lehenga offers delicate pearl work in an unexpected colour for the night. After all, how else is a bride to stand out in a sea of same ol’ outfits? Keep the make-up dewy for this one.
