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.

On your way to a summer wedding? Make sure to pack light—not just clothes, but colours as well!

Attending a summer wedding and don’t know what to pack? Beat the heat with four spectacular shades of summer. Word on the street is that pastels are ‘the new black’, and there is no doubt about it, as Bollywood celebrities are seen sporting the soothing colours in traditional kurtis and lehengas. Inspired by summer, we’ve curated a list of the top four colours that will keep you looking fresh and stunning.

If yellow is reminiscent of the sun, teal calls to mind a day at the beach. Traditional garments in teal tones will instantly elevate your celebratory mood. The blue-green hue, reflecting the colours of a peacock’s feather, pairs well with the festive ambience.

With Living Coral declared the Pantone Colour of the Year, wearing the pinkish-orange shade is sure to get you many compliments. Coral exudes a sense of liveliness, so pair it with subtly-toned accessories such as a pair of white juttis and ivory jhumkas.

If you are undecided about the colours, choose classic tones, which include shades of white, beige and an all-time favourite, black. A dependable palette for summer, white never goes out of style—be it in kurtis, saris or lehengas. Though black isn’t viewed as an auspicious colour per se, it can be a pleasing pick for the evening reception.

With your outfits in place, don’t forget to pack your sunscreen, your favourite pair of sunglasses and comfortable shoes. Summer weddings are a time to shine, so make sure it is not sweat that is making your face glow. Choose your make-up carefully and take care of your tresses to protect them from exposure to excessive heat. And finally, have an unforgettable wedding experience under the sun!
