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.

How to reuse your wedding trousseau

Don’t know what to do with your wedding dress after the big day? We have a few ideas to help you revamp your wedding trousseau into a reusable outfit

The big day is over and your wedding trousseau has been packed with all its charm and opulence to be stored away to wear again in an unforeseeable future. You spent time and money trying to perfect your wedding day lehenga, but now, you are left with a heavy heart wondering what to do with it. Many millennial brides flinch at the thought of spending too much money on their wedding outfit thinking they can never wear it again. But that is not the case anymore. We have a few ideas for you to take your trousseau out of the storage and into your wardrobe. Transform your wedding outfit into durable fashion, here’s how…

 

Anarkali

The anarkali is a fashionable outfit choice that can be worn on more than one occasion. By attaching the blouse to your lehenga, you will create a hassle-free and attractive ensemble fit for any festive event. You can also add a waistband or an embroidered belt on the waist to complete your look with refinement and grandeur.

 

Flip the blouse

We are living in the age of quirky fashion and experimental colour palettes. You can pair your other blouses with your bridal lehenga and do the same with others. This will help you adorn a fresh and personalised look that is dynamic and stunning. Using colours of a contrasting shade with your bridal lehenga or recreating celebrity fashion might help you find an unexpectedly practical and striking look.

 

Kurti

Your bridal dupatta may be plain or decked with embroidery and detail; nonetheless, it is an essential part of your wedding trousseau. You can transform it into a kurti to be paired with a pair of jeans, churidar or palazzos. Kurtis can be worn for a casual day—out or even a festive occasion.

Take away from the monotony of your wedding outfit by draping your dupatta in a different way. You can hang it over your shoulder and tuck it into a metallic belt or a waistband for a chic look to flaunt your midriff. If it boasts of detailed work, you can wrap it across the front or let it hang across your waist and down your wrist. Use your creativity to play around with your bridal dupatta to fashion it in the best way possible.

 

Style jackets

Long or short jackets with embroidery or even ones which are pastel coloured are a great add-on over your wedding lehenga. Embellished jackets complement lehengas with heavy work. For the more detailed and embroidered lehenga, you can opt for a sheer net jacket to enhance the overall style of your bridal beauty.

 

Your wedding trousseau will never go out of style. Fashion your bridal couture in countless ways to create a picture-perfect reworked outfit that looks as good as new.
