Niti Mody

Design specialist Niti Mody always wanted to wear her beautiful heirloom jewels for her wedding. Rahul Misra designed her traditional wedding lehenga keeping in mind her beautiful jewels.

Heirloom Hasli and Borla

“I got married to Nirav Doshi on 22nd November, 2009 at The Taj Lands End, Bandra. For long, I nurtured the dream of wearing my heirloom jewels on my wedding day. After my marriage was fixed, I showed the Rajasthani jewels, the Hasli (neckpiece) and Borla (maangtika) to my designer friend and senior from NID Ahmedabad, Rahul Misra. We had meetings and more meetings, and from there emerged my scarlet red Wedding lehenga. Typically most Gujarati brides wear the white and red Panetar Gharchola, but I wanted a rich lehenga choli, and in a contrast color to my blue neckpiece. The lehenga was woven in Benares and teamed with a gold brocade blouse and a haldi color dupatta.”

Gold and Diamonds for the Cocktail

"I wanted a very wearable saree for the pre-wedding cocktail, so I could dance easily. And being a very practical person, I wanted to spend money on a gorgeous saree which I could wear again. Since I had decided on wearing diamond jewellery, I didn’t want a complete white or ivory look, so Rahul Misra designed for me a beautiful gold net saree with gold sequins-- to give me a glamorous Gold and Diamond look."

Wedding Makeup

Cory Walia did my makeup for the morning wedding function and Nepean Sea Road based Priya Todarwal did my makeup for the Cocktail at JK Banquets, Prabhadevi.

Color coordinated Groom

Since I’m a Graphic Designer, it was great fun designing my own mandap and invitation cards- the creative element for both were N and N (Niti and Nirav). Nirav’s wear for both functions was designed by Troy Costa the menswear designer who specialises in made-to-order clothes. For the wedding Nirav wore a beige sherwani and silk dhoti with an emerald necklace. Since he was keen to wear a Tuxedo for the cocktail, and we wanted to look color coordinated, he wore a black tuxedo with a beige/ white shirt and a gold vest.
