Djitisha Bhonsle

Djitisha Bhonsle married Amar Butala in Mumbai on January 28th, 2010. Djitisha, who has worked in marketing roles in the television and film industry and Amar who’s currently a Creative Director at MTV, wanted a hassle-free, no-planning required wedding.

They had two intimate functions-- a Mehendi and a Wedding. Djitisha was most excited about her Mehendi function and spent a lot of time thinking about it. She wanted it to be a fun evening and a function with a difference. She happened to see a sparkly blue coloured mul-mul fabric—this she decided would be used to construct the tent. And from then on, she worked on the ‘Mehendi in a blue tent’ theme—the venue was the pool-side of her friend’s residence at a heritage building near Shahrukh Khan’s home in Bandra. She searched for some blue accessories that would add charm to the evening-- her favourite pick being the centerpieces; turquoise blue lanterns which reflected blue light. She instructed the Mehendiwali to create happy, floral designs on all hands and she and her guests were elated with the Mehendiwali’s work.

For the Mehendi, Djitisha picked from Zooni, the store in Bandra, a flowy, relaxed top in brocade and chiffon—with a jewelled neckline. For the Wedding, Djitisha opted for a red and beige combination. Her red lehenga was stitched and embroidered by some karigars she knew in Benares. A designer friend created for her a beige brocade choli with embroidery to match the lehenga.

Unlike most brides who have a makeup artist visit their home or venue, Djitisha visited the Mac Studio at Juhu for her makeup. Says Djitisha: “Mac has a party package and a wedding package. I opted for the party package since I didn’t want a heavily made-up look.” Her hair was done by bblunt studio. “I loved Jennifer Garner’s hairstyle at the Oscars—and I briefed the bblunt team to give me side-swepts with relaxed slightly unkempt bangs.”
