Today we are featuring a beautiful Gujarati wedding of Shruti and Nilesh photographed by Sean and Amanda Photography

Shruti and Nilesh met while attending college in Atlanta, Georgia. The couple got married on a gorgeous fall day in Greenville, South Carolina. The couple tied the knot in a traditional Gujarati wedding ceremony. For the ceremony, Shruti wore red and white “panetar”, which is the sari typically worn by Gujarati brides. She completed her gorgeous ceremony look with a sheer red net veil.

For the wedding reception in the evening, Shruti changed into a very pretty pink and gold lehnga, while Nilesh wore a midnight blue and gold sherwani. The reception was full of fun, and lots of dancing (and yes, there was garba and raas!). The bridal party and the family had some amazing performances lined up. The bride herself performed a beautiful dance along with her bridesmaids.

I  love all the beautiful colors and celebration in this wedding. The couple’s love for one another, their families and their traditions was evident on their wedding day.

Happy Wedding Wednesday! We are so excited to feature the wedding of Bollywood’s super charming actress, Esha Deol, and Bharat Takhtani, a Bandra based businessman. Esha tied the knot with her long time boyfriend Bharat on June 29th. Enjoy the inside scoop from the couple’s four day extravaganza including Sangeet, Mehendi, Wedding Ceremony, and Reception.

Wedding Sangeet

Esha and Bharat’s retro themed Sangeet was held on 25th June, at Hotel Lalit Intercontinental in Mumbai. The decor was in red and black, and had the retro touch of the 70s. Glittering disco balls hung down from the ceiling and created a fun ambience. Esha looked stunning in a Rocky S creation: orange and red lengha choli embroidered with real gold zari. To complete the look, Esha wore a heavy polki necklace, with pearl drops paired with matching earrings, tika, beautiful polki layered waistchain (kamarband) with polki bangles. Bharat donned a blue velvet sherwani, designed by Simone Khambatta.

Hema Malini, Mother of the Bride and Bollywood’s “Dream Girl” looked super elegant. Very befittingly, she danced to her all time hit number “Dream Girl”. The lovely bride danced to her hit numbers, “Tauba Tauba” and “Dhoom Macha Le”. Bharat rocked the party, when he danced to the super hit song “Jumma Chumma” and” Maa Da Ladla”. Read more »

How to don your Diva look this wedding season

With the wedding season here, it is time to refresh your wardrobe to make sure you will be dressed to impress. For most of us ladies, going shopping in India is not always a feasible option. Borrow It Bindaas,  online boutique for beautiful saris, anarkalis and accessories, provides Bindaas or “worry free” service to rent or buy Indian outfits from the convenience of your own home.

Why Bindaas?

Like most of us, Co-founders of Borrow It Bindaas, Riddhi, Siddhi, and Manshi, grew up playing dress-up with their mom’s Indian outfits. To avoid spending big bucks on designer Indian outfits, they eventually found themselves forming a sari swapping circle of girlfriends and cousins. While this would give you more variety, eventually you are bound to repeat outfits and fall back on latest styles.

Enter Borrow It Bindaas. The lovely ladies at Borrow It Bindaas started the company for fashionistas who want to dress in a new and trendy outfit at every wedding/event, without having to break the bank. As the sari enthusiasts from Borrow It Bindaas put it, “From the sexy styles of Bollywood saris in Mumbai to the traditional handcrafted sarees of Kolkata, to the Couture inspired styles of Delhi, we have it all!”
