I write a lot about budget weddings on this blog, and off late the one question that I get asked time and again is that show us how to stay in that budget. What is the proof it can be done? From wedding decor, to props and outfits…I have always said that no matter what the budget, fantastic things can be done with it. After all, money is money right?
Spring is upon us, and while a year back when I was in Mumbai I could understand no difference between seasons, Gurgaon on the other hand has been a complete surprise. Winter is receding, and spring is here and oh my god, its so beautiful everywhere. Flowers are blooming, leaves are changing colours and overall the feeling is so calming and joyful.
Ok, so anyways coming back to the outfit..
Yesterday I thought let me just put together a look for you’ll to see which is perfect for a DIY Summer Wedding Guest Look. Oh and it cost me less than a single pink note. Sacchi !
I had written a post sometime back, that a Kurta Lehenga is the easiest outfit to DIY. Kurta Lehengas are so in these days, You will see them everywhere in weddings, and it can be used in so many different ways. From using the kurta as a regular salwar suit set, to using the lehenga skirt with a mix match crop top…and the dupatta, well that’s the easiest to reuse right?
Let me know what you think about the look.
Silk has always been my go to fabric, be it for regular casual look, to ethnic wear and even lehengas. The fabric looks so rich, whether you go for a heavy or a casual look, it still stands out. Back when I was in Mumbai last month, I went to my local fabrics store, and this mint blue green chanderi silk fabric was on the display shelf. I immediately grabbed it. Checked the prices and turned out it cost just 150 bucks a meter.
I didn’t have to put in that much thought. 2.5 meters cut and kept aside, I wondered what do I team it up with. Luckily for me, my mom tends to stitch most of my clothes, so we knew we could make something out of it. I then picked up this white raw silk fabric, it was in the ivory shade. I loved it.
My mom was totally against me buying it, only because white gets ruined very very easily. But the second I laid my eyes on it, I knew the combination would click for me. Cost? 200 bucks a meter. I needed 3.5.
A special shoutout to my dearest hubby, who was so sweet to be doing this ‘photoshoot’ of sorts for me. I normally love posing, and getting my pictures clicked, but I was so so nervous for this one. The minute I made this photoshoot like an agenda for the blog, I had the hardest time looking normal for the camera. Please bare with me for the amateurish pictures. Just wanted to share my spring DIY Summer Wedding Guest Look inspiration with you all.
Wish you all a very Happy Holi 😀
