Divya Palat
Theatre professional Divya Palat married Aditya Hitkari in Mumbai. She spoke to Sakshi Singh about her wedding day look.

My wedding ended up being a week long affair as I had just recovered from my illness and needed to organize and space out the events well. We started the celebrations on the 13th of March 2006 with a Sangeet ceremony. For the Sangeet at the Blue Sea I wore a blue lehnga. It was young, fun and very 'me'. It was an outfit that I saw and chose first and I completely loved it. The baby blue and pink embroidery was a perfect start to a gorgeous week of celebrations ahead.

The next day was my Bachelorette party. A fun and funky affair with my girlfriends, I stuck to a pair of denims for this party. For my mehendi ceremony, I wore an exquisite pink sari. At this function I just relaxed and got thoroughly pampered like all brides.

My wedding was on the 16th March. We had two wedding ceremonies for the brides and the groom's families as I am a South Indian from the Royal Family of Cochin and Aditya is a North Indian. For the South Indian wedding, I wore a traditional Malayali half sari in cream color with a gold border while Aditya wore a munda dressed in true Malayali style. The wedding was at our Malayali temple in Chembur (Kochu Gurvayoor). Aditya's family being North Indian wanted an Arya Samaj wedding which was held in the same temple. For my Arya Samaj wedding, I wore a stunning, heavy deep rose ghagra with an incredibly heavy dupatta.

Since we had two weddings in a row, we had no energy to have an evening reception on the same day. So we had the reception the next day at Taj Mahal hotel for which I wore a heavy red lehenga choli. At the venue I designed the backdrop which was lit marvelously with candles. I had also created a flower decoration outside which had "A" and "D" symbolizing our names. I designed it myself as it was our wedding day and I wanted to be involved in planning and personalizing all the little details.
