Guest Post - Dream Wedding by Kavya Krishna!
Hello Shopzters! Meet Kavya Krishna, one of our ardent followers, who enthusiastically participates in all the contests and also gives suggestions frequently. Inspired by our compilation on dream wedding, she has come forward with her idea of dream wedding!
Hi everyone! I am Kavya Krishna, a 20yr old BDS student and a budding blogger who writes about small things in Life. I m into Jewellery Designing and Styling.
Every girl dreams of a fairytale wedding and I am not an exception!
My family would be surely shocked reading these first lines because I have always been an introvert. I don't think they could have expected that I dream of my wedding! Haha.. :-D
Now that I told you about my family's reaction, I should say about when and where this whole 'dream'y part started. One day, I got to watch this amazing show on TV, called "BAND BAAJA BRIDE with SABYASACHI". Sabyasachi Mukherjee has always been my favorite designer who keeps his Indian roots alive in his designs. This is a Bridal Makeover Show airing on NDTV Good Times. And I bet this will make every girl like me, go gaga over the weddings. I was in Love with the whole wedding thing, specifically the Bridal Journey, by the end of the show. I still keep following the show and secretly wish that someone in my family would surprise me with Band Baaja Bride entry for my wedding! ;)
My next big impact has been my schoolmate Anusha's wedding. She was my super senior in school, my busmate and she loves me like her sister. Everything in her wedding is so spectacular and has a lasting impression on me from her wedding wardrobe to themes to photographs. It is truly a Beautiful wedding!
My next influence is very guessable, the platform through which you are reading me, SHOPZTERS !! Why not? It actually takes you to a mesmerizing virtual tour to your wedding! Its amazing vendor list makes all the brides-to-be to feel at ease. Great write-ups, bride of the month, photographer of the month, boutique of the month, jewellers, decorators and what not? You will find everything here, you just have to pick up according to your need. And thats what made my dream more vivid! Thank you SHOPZTERS !! :)
Ok, now its high time to tell you the actual thing. My Dream Wedding would be that in which one can see a bright smile on all my family members' faces! It should be a lot of fun but it shouldn't miss a single ritual. I want it to be completely traditional according to our Telugu Brahmin Culture.
Whenever I hear the word 'wedding', the first thing that comes to my mind is 'Colour' ! Yes, I want a Colourful wedding and my bridal palette should contain all my favourite colours! My trousseau will have a particular colour for every event of the wedding!
To elaborate the bridal palette, I wouldn't specifically say about me but I would like to present it in general.
For the engagement, I would prefer a Gold coloured saree with a bright contrasting border and minimal jewellery, preferably Gold and Pearls.
For Mehendi, choose a Ghaghra or a saree as it would be easy for you if you put mehendi for feet. My pick would be a simple plain ghaghra in Pastel green-yellow shades and a slight heavy work blouse in contrasting colours.
For Sangeeth, go for an intricate work Lehenga in bright, playful colours. ( Make sure it is not too heavy to stop you from shaking a leg! )
On the wedding day, I would prefer picking the traditional colours - Green and Red and it would surely be a Kanjeevaram Pattu Saree. Make sure the work on the blouse is not too heavy as already the sarees will be full of it. Go for the Traditional Gold Jewellery. My favourite weddings include Actress Sneha and Prasanna's. Thanks to Shopzters again for that wonderful Celebrity Wedding Story! I loved the look of Sneha on her D-Day. I feel she is one of the most stunning brides ever! I would blindly follow her for the big day!
For the Reception, I would prefer the colour Pink. It is the most-picked colour for Receptions. A Bright Pink Lehenga with a dash of green paired with a Statement Necklace of Diamonds with an Emerald in it, would create a Million bucks Look!!
I would like to keep the make-up minimal, it is the Happiness that should give you the much-needed Glow! Prefer comfort over style. Prefer traditions over trends.
Talking about the things other than wardrobe, the decoration should be elegant with a touch of grandeur. There is a lot of importance to Candid Wedding Photography these days. I browsed through many, and I fell in love with Arjun Kartha Photography by the lovely couple Arjun and Prerna. I call them 'Magicians of Moments' !! :)
Wondering about the Location? That is my Dad's dream..in a Farmhouse! And I loved it.
Didn't imagine My Dream would be this vivid and elobarate? :-P By the way, I am just a 20yr old girl having a whole lot of time for my wedding. So, if you like my ideas, make sure you happily grab them for your D-Day!! All the Best! :)
