Wedding: Our favourite looks for your favourite women!
Mums and Massis are the merriest people you will meet at any wedding. Full of love, and laughter – they manage to shield the stress and emotion they are under with grace and elegance. Whilst many will tell you that grace and elegance come from within, there is also a case for it to be said that it partly stems from those who know what to wear as much as how to carry it off: occasion appropriate, apt for their age and well fitted.
Mehendi’s are always such a colorful affair, so it’s important that as a Mum or Massi of the Bride [now to be referred to as MOTB] that you are just as bright and colorful. Mind you, the only problem with bright colours, as with prints, is that they can be unflattering – so make sure that you pick a look that helps you stand out without making you stand big! We love this pink and yellow ombre sari by Manish Malhotra, subtle but high in impact, this sari is also light weight and easy to wear. Pair it with a simple up-do and some natural make up to keep your MOTB looking fabulous.
As a MOTB sangeets are not just an excuse to let down your hair and go crazy, rather they are a time for hundreds of handshakes, air-kisses, a few spurts on the dance floor, and all without getting a hair out of place! This coral embellished gharara by Ridhi Mehra is the perfect outfit for a MOTB – bold, beautiful and full of movement, it is dramatic and flattering. Wear it with a statement up-do and some beautiful kundan jewelry.
The most important of all the events, the wedding ceremony calls for a look that is refined and regal. Usually the first one dressed, the MOTB spends the day trying to keep everyone and everything under control – making sure that the entire production runs to time and plan; all the while looking perfectly composed with an outfit to match! We love this gold sari with a baroque silver, red and black embroidered floral border by Anamika Khanna – simple and eye catching in equal measure, it is the perfect sari to take your MOTB from the mandap to the reception.
