Indo-western designs to rule wedding season

It is time for shehnais, giggles and customs, and celebrations are just round the corner with the upcoming wedding season. In Delhi, wedding is not just another tradition but a carnival.

Almost every one dreams of a perfect wedding but the preparation for it takes away most of the enthusiasm and hardly leaves any stamina to enjoy what has been conceived.

To cater to all wedding solutions Celebrating Vivaha recently presented its 10th edition in the Capital at Hotel Ashok.

The three day wedding exh­i­bition was spectacular as around 100 participators from across sectors showcased their collections. These included apparel and footwear designers, make-up experts, skincare brands, travel and tour organisers (for honeymoon destinations), photography experts and florists. In addition to these pre-wedding services, this year’s exhibition included caterers as well, thus making the venue a one-stop-shop for all wedding solutions!

Apparels were the ultimate showstoppers with hordes thronging for designer dresses. Exhibiting her collection, designer Ankita Chaudhary from Saaj said, “Each piece has to be adapted to the sensibility of the buyer. The young brides-to-be are quite well informed about what they want and thus the designer has to see what works best on whom.”

Sharing a few fabric and style trends for the upcoming wedding season, Ankita said, “A combination of Italian chiffon and chanderi is in. The chatelli lace work is also being appreciated. However, the anarkalis are still ruling demands even though the long straights are all set to make their comeback!”

Within the hardly available options for men, Deepak S. Chhabra’s designs saved the grooms-to-be of the trouble of tiring shopping rounds.

Deepak says, “It’s a five hour show for men so most prefer to opt for sherwani especially in white and gold since they are rich colours. But for other functions, men are opening up for Indo-western designs including bandh galas and waist-coats in bright colours.”

There was no dearth of options for kids with customised designer wear by Studio 169 which offered discounts on frocks. Selecting a dress for her granddaughter, Kiran Seth, a homemaker said, “My grand daughter is coming from Australia to attend a wedding here. So I wanted to gift her a dress but didn’t expect such brilliant designer wear in kids collection. The best part is that they are customising the sizes to suit the buyer.” But be it the men, women or kid’s collection, Indo-western designs ruled the show in all garments.
So was the case in accessories too. While potlis and footwear embellished with gem stones by Rashmi Doshi were a major attraction, there was no space to even stand at Shillpa Puri’s stall which displayed chic yet ethnic artificial and silver jewellery.

There were also interesting gifting options by Rasberrie which included Mughal and Bollywood themed quilts in digital prints and card themed trays and tissue holders. To top it all were the card invites by Baklava House.

Wide varieties of card and sweet-box combinations with interesting options in sweets such as baklava, nougat, dates, French tarts and Jordan almonds were also available.
