Listening to Akriti Kakar talk about her significant other feels like they’ve been together forever.

About Me
Kalki through the looking-glass

As we entered Amy Billimoria’s House of Design in Juhu, Mumbai, we knew we were not in Kansas anymore. The store exudes a happy feeling. From the décor of the store to the clothes housed within it, we could tell that this was going to be a departure from a traditional bridal makeover.

About Me
Sonam and Paras Modi share their marriage mantra…

We met at a common friend’s wedding in Lonavla, after which we started meeting almost twice a week with friends. We got along like a house on fire; it felt so comfortable talking to each other, it was like we were long lost friends. The initial courtship felt more like a game of hide and seek. We didn’t want to tell people yet as we were still getting to know each other.

Bollywood wedding trends to take note of!

Cues to take from starry weddings to celebrate your own big moment

From Italy and across the United States to India, 2018 was flooded with some of Bollywood’s most celebrated weddings. If you’ve dreamed of getting married with some dhum-dhamaka, take a trip down memory lane with us to spot some lavish trends in the hottest weddings of last year.


Soon to-be brides, take note: the red lehenga is back in fashion to seriously impress. Timeless and traditional, you can tweak the embroidery to best exude your personality. While girl Priyanka Chopra’s lehenga was detailed with intricately-woven thread, Deepika Padukone flaunted golden hand-work embroidery in hers—both of which were designed by the renowned Sabyasachi Mukherjee. Sonam Kapoor donned a dreamy design by Anuradha Vakil which exhibited beautifully-etched lotus motifs.

Jewel me up

Deepika, Priyanka and Sonam extravagantly showcased their bliss by fancying themselves in strings of precious stones. Layered necklaces and heavy bangles oozed richness. Ladies, there’s no need to be subtle on your special day—while Deepika and Sonam showed off maatha pattis, all three wore exquisite maangtikkas. Statement chokers too, are à la mode. The trio also lent their outfit a little groove with attractive, gold kaleeras.

Knot me pretty

Don’t let your hair frizz up! Instead, opt for an up-do that is sure to let the rest of your outfit do the talking. Take inspiration from the dazzling Bollywood brides who totally mesmerised us with their chic buns.

Call of the personal

Customizing your dress is a great way to make your wedding as intimate as possible. Priyanka’s Ralph Lauren dress held Nick’s name as well as her wedding date. Her Sabyasachi red dress too, secretly spelt the names of her parents and her spouse. Nick’s love for Priyanka shone visibly as his wedding tux read my jaan in Urdu. Deepika too, draped a dupatta that read ‘Sadaa Saubhagyawati Bhava’.

Ranveer Singh, the Bollywood heartthrob, and the charming Anand Ahuja added some suave to their outfit by using neck jewellery pieces. Soon to-be grooms, this is the trend you should be on the lookout for.
