But, I am not going to go over who the bride, groom are. What they do. What is their love story? You can get that dose from their Instagram accounts. I am more interested in showing you the actual
At a time when premium designers are all adding to their expertise by getting into wedding footwear, decor, jewellery. It makes sense to take note of this wedding. You never know, Anita Dongre might just start another line in the wedding business.
Bride Benaisha Kharas in a custom Anita Dongre Wedding Lehenga
The blushing bride always wanted to get married in pink. Her gota
pattilehenga was handcrafted in Rajasthan, with Benaisha’s favourite quote embroidered into the dupatta.
When I saw you I fell in love, and you smiled because you knew.
Benaisha’s fondness for inspirational quotes was also curated in the wedding decor.
Every wedding I’ve designed for has held a place in my heart. Today, I’d like to share with you a glimpse into a very special occasion; the wedding celebrations of my son Yash with his sweetheart, Benaisha.
For us, it was a no-brainer to choose a wedding destination that paid homage to India’s untapped beauty. We zeroed in on Mussoorie for the couple to be married amidst nature, embraced by lush forests and with a backdrop of the Himalayas – Anita Dongre
If you love gota-patti lehengas, you would know there is no one better than Anita Dongre in this world to make your dream lehenga. Daughter in law Benaisha Kharas was dressed in the finest Anita Dongre Couture all through the wedding and pre-wedding functions.
Before you even ask, all of these wedding and pre-wedding outfits are specially made just for the bride. Custom unique pieces, so getting a sense of what her wedding wardrobe cost is not possible
Carnival Theme Brunch Party At The ITC Welcome Hotel The Savoy, Mussoorie
The couple chose to make #SEWA a part of the festivities at their pre-wedding carnival themed brunch.
An organization close to our hearts, the Gujarat chapter of SEWA (Self-employed Women’s Association) is what inspired the origins of @anitadongregrassroot.
The women of SEWA rallied to create the meticulously embroidered twinning look you see here.
All through the wedding, Anita Dongre mentioned the wedding outfits were designed to be lightweight and comfortable to wear. This midi skirt crop top was my favourite look from the entire wedding. Easy to dress up in, perfect mehendi dress. You don’t have to bother about your hands and legs while applying mehendi for hours.
Anita Dongre’s recent LFW 2019 collection showcased similar midi crop top skirts. The good part is, her collection is now catering towards mass crowd coz everything was priced under 1 lakh. You can see the prices in the link below.
The Cute Bridesmaid’s Outfits
With friends like family, it was important to Yash and Benaisha that their groomsmen and bridesmaids wear coordinated ensembles for the wedding ceremony.
For a hill side destination wedding, this family affair had all the right colours. The bridesmaids wore bright mint (I think chanderi) lehengas for the main wedding ceremony. For those of you unaware, chanderi silk is one of the more lightweight, both literally and on the pocket.
I recently went to Lajpat Nagar and checked out fabrics, and chanderi was everywhere. It is super affordable and usually comes with silver and gold zari work. The ones
I have always wondered how do you get bridesmaids to spend a bomb on their outfits. It’s not easy to get everyone on board with the same outfit style, colour, design. I mean we are women, we like different things. But something like this, I am sure makes sense coz if you don’t spend that much, you don’t hurt that much.
Mumbai Cocktail Party
Benaisha’s ink blue gown with intricate pichhwai work was complemented by Yash’s classic sherwani, at their Mumbai cocktail. The traditional craftwork on the bride’s gown was designed in deliberate contrast to its Western silhouette.
The Bride also wore a Pichhwai Collection Lehenga
Notice those beautiful hand-painted birds flying all over her lehenga? That’s Anita Dongre’s magic. I have become a huge fan of her craft ever since I went and saw her lehengas up close. They shine even from a mile’s distance, and I’m not kidding you. Her lehengas have the most intricate work, especially the gota
Her bridal lehengas are usually in the INR 3-5 Lakh price range. The
Once upon a time there was a boy who loved a girl, and her laughter was a question he wanted to spend his whole life answering.
And laugh she did. And dance they did. At their sangeet, Benaisha in a forest green lehenga embellished with intricate hand painted pichhwai work and Yash in a twinning hand painted pichhwai sherwani with nature motifs to match.
The Parsi Wedding Party
The wedding reception, held at a traditional Parsi Agiary, was an ode to the couple’s different cultures. The Parsi gara motif on Benaisha’s legenga showcased embroidered birds that harmonised with the thread work of Yash’s twinning sherwani.
