Feast your eyes on our lovely bride getting all primped and prodded for her big Destination Indian Fusion wedding in Jaipur, India! Kaya Jaipur gives our Maharani a classic updo—traditionally wrapped in beautiful jasmine flowers. And thanks to Kristin Speed Photography, we can sneak a peek at her gorgeous gold jewels, courtesy of Dwarkas, that go along with her pretty red-orange sari—which she found at WovenTree. Equally excited for the main event is the Maharaja of her dreams, who looks oh-so-dapper in his cream-colored sherwani, which he got from Benzer. I can't wait to see their wedding, but in the meantime, see more bridal looks in the gallery!
From the bride, on the fashion:
"Hours and days and weeks on the Internet, yes. But the reason for doing so is the opposite of what one would imagine. Whenever you look up Indian bridal outfits, you see one big flashy outfit after another. It took me weeks to figure out that I will not be buying anything off the 'bridal' shelf. Throughout my life, I have not been overtly consumed by physical appearance and labels. I wanted something that was me - an unbranded, unlabeled, graceful outfit. I worked endlessly with my mother to figure this out. I gave her ideas sitting in London and she got everything done in India. When I finally went home 20 days before the wedding, my mother had already lined up all the outfits for each day of the wedding week. She is really the best mom a girl can ever ask for! And on top of it, as an enviable bonus, she has impeccable taste in clothes. Most of my outfits were mix and match - we bought traditional things but then accessorised them with a twist. A heavy, 9-kilo aari skirt with a silk mandarin collar jacket for example. Adding the jacket meant no necklace and bangles required fitting in perfectly with my minimalist look. At the wedding too, it was a heavy Benaras red sari but we complemented it with a plain red dupatta to sober down the look."
