All that the NRI Brides want to know about Shopping in India

By Nisha Kundnani of Bridélan

All your bags are packed, and you’re ready to go, leaving on a jet plane. Hmmm…humming the tune with excitement and butterflies in your stomach? For girls, shopping for our wedding, well, let’s admit, is as exciting as the wedding itself. Probably more! For many of my clients and friends who live abroad, shopping in India means wanting to take back a piece of their homeland, to wear India and to celebrate it on one of the most important days of their life! Here’s my list of recommendations for NRI brides on shopping in India.

The Wedding Lehenga
It’s not just a three-piece Indian garment. It’s a romantic dream and a childhood fantasy. Your wedding lehenga is the garment that will define your bridal moment. You’ve saved more than a 100 photos from Pinterest and know the Lakmé, Wills and Couture Fashion Week collections at the back of your head- but in reality, finding the perfect lehenga that suits your idea will be like looking for a needle in a haystack. You’ll find yourself romancing age-old antique zardosi in fine silk, resham thread work over layers of romantic tulle will catch your fancy, gota and mirror work colorful borders will instantly attract and let’s not forget how those vivid Indian colours can be ‘Oh-so-found-only-in-India’.

Hop by to the newest Bridal museum in the land of Bollywood– Mumbai at the new Sabyasachi flagship store. If you’re lucky you’ll get to meet your ‘hero’– Sabyasachi Mukherjee himself as he is hosting bridal trunk shows starting this August in Delhi, Mumbai, Hyderabad and few other cities. His heritage lehengas in reds and fuchsias are outstanding and will evoke that strong sense of emotion that a bride will experience– ‘OMG! I want to get married just for these clothes.’

Creations by Manish Malhotra, Tarun Tahiliani and Sabyasachi

You cannot come to Mumbai and not visit the Badshah of Hindi movies the gentle manly genius– Manish Malhotra. He’s got a pulse on the glamour and colour that is unique to Indian wedding wear, and especially popular for the sangeet or the mehndi. The other must-visit for your reception or any other glamorous formal event is master couturier– Tarun Tahiliani. There is no designer in this country whose outfits are so uniquely draped and pre-stitched to flatter a woman’s body.                  

The Festive Anarkali
Remember Rekha dancing to ‘In Aankhon ki masti’ in a voluminous ivory silk kurta in the classic Umrao Jaan? Splendid, wasn’t it? She wore an ivory anarkali. It is a garment that has gone down as the most desirable piece of clothing of India. Now back in action, in a big way. The Anarkali, revived and reinvented, is like the new LBD, in the Indian context. Now imagine yourself in something similar, alta-smered fingers, donning jewellery by the Nizams, you will actually look and feel like Anarkali, a popular courtesan from the Mughal courts.

If being so old-school isn’t your cup of tea, take cues from modern designs. Look for: Tarun Tahiliani’s collection. Chic and shortened to show cool dhoti pants and some are as short as a peplum top but has a cascading trail at the back. Or go back to history of Indian cinema’s favourite designers Meera & Muzzafar Ali of Kotwara designs. Muzaffar directed Umrao Jaan and also styled it. His muse and stylist Pernia Qureshi recently walked for the Kotwara show in a vintage kurta set at the recently held India Couture Week.

Explore price and design range in every category at India’s oldest but chicest multi-designer store– Ensemble Design Studio in Mumbai and Delhi.

Jadau Jewellery
Traditional is the new ‘in-trend’. Although a must-have at weddings anywhere in the world, wearing your love for traditional on your sleeves is the new cool. When you have many elements of your bridal and trousseau taken care, the next big step is jewellery. You know how timeless and out-of-the-world Indian royalty look in pictures, posing in beautiful textiles and jaw dropping jewellery.  Almost all of Indian royalty wore fine jewels handcrafted in Jadau/ Polki diamonds in meenakari work. Jadau jewellery is a fine export from Bikaner and is now available not just in Rajasthan but also all over India. Jadau jewellery layered looks glamorous and makes you look like royalty when paired with Indian ensembles. It’s not just the traditional necklaces and earrings that work, brides now want to go all out and wear a mathapatti, hathphool, kamarbandh, nath, bajubandh and many more. Jaipur and Delhi are the best places to shop for Jadau jewellery. Don’t miss heritage pieces from trusted brands like Tanishq, a jewellery brand by the Tatas who have over 138 stores across 80 cities in India. They are the wedding jewellery specialists and always stock exquisite Jadau designs, also offering you value for money.  Another premium brand by the Tatas is Zoya. They have stores in Mumbai and Delhi and specialise in finely handcrafted designer jewellery.

Indian Fusion Sari
Every young bride aspires to wear a sari, but with a modern twist. It is in the DNA of every Indian woman to embrace the sari. In India these days, the sari is seen as power dressing. While some of us take time to adapt to the phenomenon of draping, others are pro from the word go (even if they’ve learnt it over You Tube). You love the sari but wonder how to drape it back in your home country? Don’t worry. Indian designers are exploring various ways for the sari to adapt to the modern woman’s lifestyle. Pre-stitched, pre-draped, some even come looking like sleek, modern gowns. In Delhi, shop at Amit Agarwal for avant-garde styles, or from designer Gaurav Gupta at the DLF Emporio Mall. Even Manish Malhotra at his recent fashion week showed the lehenga saris.

Traditional Weaves
Every girl can claim to be influenced by a whole lot of top fashion designers but the truth is that during the time of her wedding, she looks up to her mother and grandmother as true style icons. Turning pages of a family album, going down memory lane and one realises that the grace and sophistication that came so easily to them was a result of being ‘truly traditional’. They didn’t run after trends and fashion but celebrated being demure and traditional and thus looked elegant even years after it was time for their grandchildren to tie the knot. The basics, the fashion lessons always come from home. The one thing our mothers/grandmothers have always had in their wardrobe is an organically built collection of hand-woven traditional saris. Do not go back without buying ones to last you a lifetime, a collection of Banarasi, Chanderi, Uppadas, Kotas, Organzas & Kanjeevaram saris. You will realise the importance of it 20 years later after tying the knot.

Raw Mango, a label by Sanjay Garg has a wide range of modern-traditional saris in Chanderi and Banarasi silks perfect for all occasions and are available at Good Earth and Ensemble. Gaurang Shah is another designer to watch out for wedding wear weaves;he has stores in Hyderabad, Bangalore and now Mumbai. A treasure trove of the most beautifully curated weaves and handlooms, rare exquisite saris can be found at the Taj Khazana– a design and crafts boutique by the Taj Group of Hotels.

5 Bespoke Offerings for Grooms-to-be

With a wedding in question, Vogue experts understand that the groom- to-be is as much the focus as a bride-to-be is. Towards this effect, the Vogue Wedding Show 2014, offers a mix of elements for the menfolk; traditional Indian wear, luxury watches, bespoke suits and much more. The participating designers like Tarun Tahiliani, Manish Malhotra, Sabyasachi and JJ Valaya are showcasing their collection for grooms and there is also a mini luxury watch pavilion with brands like Vacheron Constantin and Jaeger Lecoultre- clearly a category that men love. Apart from this there will be a showcase of made-to-measure men’s suits, styling tips for the groom from Vogue experts and a very exclusive Malts appreciation session with an International Mixologist.

From the biggest fashion trends to follow to exclusive styling tips; there is much that awaits you, in the STYLING TIPS FOR THE GROOM master-class session with Vogue Expert- Anaita Adajania Shroff. According to Anaita, one can see a return to old -world-charm sensibility, especially when it comes to men’s fashion for wedding wear; use of a lot of rich fabric, jewelled tones, and uncut stones for embellishments to give that look of regal splendour.  Because, the wedding functions are so spread out, today, you have the choice to experiment with various styles and fabrics; well-tailored suits for cocktails, linens for mehendi etc. The safas are no longer the simple orange or red, but use beautiful brocade work. The mojaris are also increasingly becoming a popular choice of accessory with a lot of them getting customized.   There are three strong trends: the use of gold, but in the sense of a more old world and therefore dull gold.  Ivory, is always in trend and Velvet, but used in highlights. Using tone on tone and self-motifs in the design is also in style, currently. Embroidered Jodhpurs, jewelled tone ajkan with white jodhpurs are some of the popular looks.

1. Grooms  wear by Tarun Tahiliani
According to couturier, Tarun Tahiliani, grooms should wear whatever they are comfortable in and also select pieces that reflect their personal style and not follow trends blindly. What has been a great hit is that because of structured draping in menswear, it has enabled men to wear silhouettes like never before. “The last time I wore a dhoti was about 15-18 years back which came off and now I am wearing it again because thanks to the draping expertise, one can wear pre-draped pants and dhotis and keep the elegance of another time but again in a contemporary way”.

Details about his collection for Grooms at the Vogue Wedding Show 2014
The Menswear collection uses a plentiful of gold, unconventional pistachio, deep oranges and an even wilder punk palette for luxurious linings, Mughal motifs depicted detailed procession in print being one of the more indulgent ones. The collection includes sherwanis with cummerbunds, bundis and jodhpuris.

2. Grooms wear by JJ Valaya
According to couturier, JJ Valaya, Indian men are becoming open to experimentation far more than they were a few years ago. Owing to the wonderful heritage of royalty and craft, they are no longer afraid to embrace both with equal zest! What’s trendy for grooms this season is luxurious fabrics, unusual colours and exquisite detailing, along with attention to detail in terms of accessories such as the safa, shoes, jewels etc.

We asked ace Wedding Designer Vandana Mohan who is closely associated with the show to share a wedding planning tip she’d like to share with WeddingSutra readers. “Before I share a tip I typically ask 100 hundred questions”, quips Vandana. “The first question I am often asked by most brides-to-be is- ‘how can you make my wedding truly different’. And my answer is, its not me or any other wedding specialist who can make your wedding different. Its upon you, your fiancé and your families to make it different. It is natural for every bride to be confused– initially she may not know what she wants, or many choices may leave her bewildered. But my one tip to every bride-to-be is- you must have a dream for your wedding. Dream big and then figure out what you like and love, and then go ahead and enjoy the journey.”

With WeddingSutra on Location- Anuja Somany

As part of our initiative ‘WeddingSutra on Location’, we invited four brides-to-be for a unique experience at Tarun Tahiliani’s couture studio in Colaba, Mumbai. Starting with a Style Consultation, a Makeover and a Photo shoot, each of the participants got to interact with some of the best names in Bridal & Wedding services.

Here in the third of the four-part series, bride-to-be Anuja Somany, shares her experience with WeddingSutra on Location.

“I came across the concept of WeddingSutra on Location a year ago when my friend was a part of the shoot, and back then, I couldn’t understand much about the concept. But now, since I’m tying the knot I’ve been so stressed about how to go about dressing for my big day, and I couldn’t help but realize how a shoot like this would be so apt for me! So I emailed the WeddingSutra team expressing my interest, and when I actually received a reply inviting me for the next On location shoot at Tarun Tahiliani’s studio, I was beyond thrilled!

I’m not a typical ‘girly girl’ but when I stepped into the studio that day and saw the gorgeous Tarun Tahiliani outfits on display, I couldn’t wait to be dolled up. First up, I had to choose an outfit to wear, which was a quick process. After looking around and considering the team’s suggestions, I selected a pink lehenga with intricate gold and silver embroidery, and I loved it as soon as I tried it on! The team then suggested trying on a spectacular uncut jewellery set from Tanshiq, which had some pink work on it and which matched my ensemble perfectly.

Next, I got my makeup & hair done by Makeup Maestro Ojas Rajani. Talking to Ojas during my makeover taught me a lot about colors, what would suit me and the products I should use. She gave me some handy tips for daily make up too! Time passed by quickly and before I realized, I was beautified with striking smokey eyes and voluminous soft curls.

Now that I was fully ready it was time for my photo shoot with Photographer Shreya Sen. Her simplicity and grace put me at ease, and posing for pictures turned out to be an enjoyable session. In all, the WeddingSutra team gave me the opportunity for a lifetime- a chance to interact one-on-one with different wedding experts under one roof!’

With WeddingSutra on Location- Disha Shah

As part of our initiative ‘WeddingSutra on Location’, we invited four brides-to-be for a unique experience at Tarun Tahiliani’s couture studio in Colaba, Mumbai. Starting with a Style Consultation, a Makeover and a Photo shoot, each of the participants got to interact with some of the best names in Bridal & Wedding services.

Here in the second of the four-part series, bride-to-be Disha Shah, tells us about her experience with WeddingSutra on Location.

“I am getting married in a month from now, and my destination wedding is in Krabi, Thailand so when my Wedding Planner Neha Shroff recommended my name for WeddingSutra on Location, I was quite happy and excited. When I was informed it is at Tarun Tahiliani’s Studio I was happier– it is always a pleasure to visit his store and take a dekko at his rich creations.

When I walked into Tarun Tahiliani’s ‘drawing room’ style studio I felt quite relieved within a few minutes of being there– everyone there seemed very friendly and chatty, and that is the environment I am more comfortable in. My session started with an interaction with Stylist Neha Kundnani who suggested I try a dress which I liked at first sight- a voluminous net dress, fitted at the top with an asymmetric patterned outer jacket. We then looked at the different traditional gold jewellery options from Azva. Nisha recommended a layered statement neck piece set and some bangles to complement, so overall the look seemed nice.

With my outfit and jewellery sorted, it was time to get a makeover by Ojas Rajani. For someone as restless as me, I was nervous about spending a considerable time doing my hair and make-up, where I could do nothing but just sit still. It seemed like a tedious, herculean task to overcome. But to my great joy, everyone around engaged me in conversation. I asked a lot of questions, as did the other brides-to-be and time flew by. Before I knew it, Ojas gave me the perfect bridal makeover, transforming me into a glamorous bride-to-be!

Finally, it was show time with Photographer Shreya Sen whose work I have been seeing and admiring on WeddingSutra. The session was a complete blast, and I enjoyed posing while she clicked away. At the end of it all, I got a little tired because my outfit was heavy, and I had been wearing it for almost three hours! I’ve made a mental note of this and prepared myself for the wedding day– when the schedule will be much more hectic, and add to that the weather– Krabi will be warm in April. I am glad I got a feel of it all with this fun trial run to the big day!”
