Maitri Mody

Maitri Mody married Manhattan based Kashyap Sheth on 12th December, 2009 at Kohinoor Banquet Hall in Shivaji Park, Mumbai. Maitri who worked as a Stylist for well-known magazines like Brides Now and Beautiful People talks about her wedding day look.

For my morning wedding ceremony I wanted a very traditional look. Being a Gujarati the custom is to wear a white sari with a red border called 'panetar'. There are lots of synthetic imitations available in Mumbai, but mine was from Ahmedabad made with authentic silk. My aunt who is a designer got the embroidery on the panetar done with mirror and thread work. As a custom I had to drape my 'panetar' along with a red 'bandhini' given by my in-laws. It was an interesting drape with both the sarees.

My gold jewelery was made to order from a famous jeweler named 'Dedhia' in Matunga. It included a necklace, earrings, kadas, armlets, maang-tikka, anklet with an attached toe-ring and haath phul. It was very traditional with an antique finish. My hair and makeup was done by my friend Kumar Iyer, a well known makeup artist. It was kept simple with kohl-lined eyes, blush and red lip stain to give a modern yet traditional look. The bindi was traditional and smaller bindi dots dotted my forehead. Hair was a bouffant with traditional gajras. The look was completed with traditional mehndi/henna.

For the evening reception I wore a yellow saree from Benzer, Mumbai.
