Golden Dust

This time of the year has always been my favourite! So many festivals and weddings, these are the days to pull out the best of traditional outfits out and party with family and friends. 

Now weddings are fun but then there’s the whole wedding shopping part that can be tad tough too. With so many ceremonies and rituals back to back, planning outfits that are completely different from the other is quite a task. I myself have 2 weddings to attend and technically I’ll be attending 6-7 ceremonies within a week so I have been spending too much time thinking and planning ‘what to wear’ for last few days. 

Further, when it comes to preferences, I usually prefer something that’s trendy yet not something that becomes ‘so last season’ within a year itself. I mean come on, firstly all those outfits we pick for ourselves are not just too pretty to not wear again, but a good attire is worth quite an amount so why waste all that effort and money. Hence I pick ensembles that can last me for at least a few times, design and quality wise both! Keeping in mind the same, I thought of sharing a few looks from Ritu Kumar bridal collection, with you guys for this wedding season which all of you can can relate to and maybe use for yourself 🙂

I’ll be sharing a series of 3 posts (like I did back in summers), starting with this one. But before I share more details on the outfit, here are the pictures:

This beige floor length anarkali is from Ritu Kumar, a designer and label that needs no introduction. One of the most respected designer-wear brand in the country, Ritu Kumar designs are a reflection of traditional Indian craftsmanship with a contemporary flavour. Distinctive use of colors, quality of fabrics, intricate embroideries and a gloriously rich Indian aesthetic, the designer wear brand is sheer luxury.

The anarkali kameez has a heavy embroidery on the bodice, rich with Zardosi or Zari and booti print below. The dupatta and sleeves are of net fabric with borders to match the border of hemline of the kameez.

This outfit is perfect for some of the pre-wedding ceremonies and rituals, and can be worn by the bride herself too thanks to the opulent work. I have kept the accessories minimal here with Ae-Tee earrings, but you can style it based on the occasion.

I had a great time shooting this look at Taj Krishna, a luxury 5 star hotel which is one of my favourite hotels here in Hyderabad. Besides the decor, aesthetics, great rooms, beautiful gardens and ball rooms, the food is good too! It’s also a perfect place to host weddings and wedding ceremonies.

The pictures are clicked by talented photographer, Abhinav Kodam. You can check out his Facebook page & Instagram profile to see his work.

Hope you guys enjoyed the post!

Much Love,
