Serena Porbunderwalla

Here the gorgeous Serena talks about how she went about planning her wedding day.

How I put together the Look for my wedding
I always knew I wanted a different look for each function, so for my engagement I went for the angelic look with a baby pink saree by Anamika Khanna. Diamonds and nude make up done by Bharat Godambe suited it best.

Engagement ceremony

For the cocktail I wore a classic black Gauri & Nainika dress with just long diamond and ruby earrings.

Cocktail Party

For the mehendi and haldi ceremony, I was dressed in a traditional yellow and green maharastrian style saree with flower jewellery.

The Nikah function was in the morning. I went for the innocent look with an off white kashmiri saree with pastel embroidery and a seperate net dupatta to cover my head. Traditional gold jewelry completed the ensemble. I did the make- up for the thesefunctions myself.

Nikah ceremony

I wanted to look like a typical Indian bride for my reception. A red lehenga choli by Ritu Kumar and traditional gold jewelry was what I chose. My makeup was done by Bharat Godambe.

Wedding Reception

For my post wedding function I wore a blue Sabhyasachi saree with contemporary diamond jewelry.

Where I Shopped

My all time favorite stores where I never fail to get an amazing outfit are Ritu Kumar, Zoya, Ogaan and Manish Malhotra. Their stuff is classic, eternal and stylish. For men I would recommend Rahul Agasti and Gabbanas.

My advice for Brides-to-be
My advice for brides-to-be would be "dont panic and follow your instincts. Even if you feel you will never find the perfect outfit don't panic, just keep looking and you will finally find that one outfit which you cant keep your hands off."
