7 Oct Wedding Venue - Wedding decor - Mehendi and garba night - Wedding planning tips for destination wedding in Thailand

I recently read about the incredible journey of a groom named Gopal, who planned his entire destination wedding in Thailand sitting 5,000 miles away in his London home. He had an interesting story to tell, and as I read through the paragraphs of crisp writing, I found myself scribbling down copious notes…on planning a destination wedding! His article had so many great tips, I knew I had to share them with my readers.

14 Favourite Finds for Brides! From Shyamal & Bhumika’s Romantic Collection

30 Sep Shades of powder blue outfits group picture - Shyamal and Bhumika New Collection 2015 - A Little Romance - Autumn-Winter Collection 2015


I recently fell for a little romance. It was a love so deep, I was most tempted to trade in my husband for…oh, I couldn’t choose which one! The lilac lehenga, or the pale blue gown…or that fiery red anarkali?

It was near-impossible to choose ONE, I’ll tell you that.

No prizes for guessing what I fell in love with – Shyamal & Bhumika’s new collection of the most delicately beautiful Indian wear, fittingly titled “A Little Romance”. With all the romantic hues of fiery red love to pale blues and soft lilacs, it’s a dreamy collection for the princess bride.

Breath-taking, gorgeous, stunning – even these sound like a bit of an underestimation to describe the sheer beauty of it all. The designers categorise this collection as “vintage and period couture with a timeless elegance. The designs will make heads turn, and it’s something out of the ordinary for your special day.”

I loved more than a dozen pieces, and put them all together for you to browse at leisure. The remaining 40 odd outfits from the collection, including pre-draped saris, lehengas, anarkalis and gowns are available right after the Top Picks.

You’ll find a new post on the blog every Wednesday, starting tomorrow.

Just wanted to let you know.

So every week, when Wednesday rolls in and you’re fiddling at work wondering when Friday will get here, you can type thedelhibride.com and you will have a new post to read, and (hopefully) beautiful wedding pictures to ogle over.

This doesn’t mean we’re publishing just once a week – sometimes there will be a new post to read on Monday and Saturday. But for now, if it’s a Wednesday, I’ve hit Publish for sure.

See you…tomorrow!

TDB Loves: Shahpur Jat’s Abhinav Mishra & His New Collection

9 Sep Abhinav Mishra 2015 new collection at AZRA

I spotted a lehenga online last year, and it stopped me in my (digital) tracks. It was everything I always look for in a lehenga – light, pretty, and reasonably priced. And it was marked as an Abhinav Mishra design. Who is Abhinav Mishra? And why hadn’t I heard of him?

A quick Google check showed his store was located at Shahpur Jat. Interesting, I thought, that there are still stores in Shahpur Jat I don’t know about. I’ve kept track of his work for over a year now, and watched him produce outfit after outfit that I’ve loved. Consistently. I wasn’t surprised when Pernia’s Pop Up Shop introduced his designs to their online store in June this year. In fact, it gave me the confidence to start recommending him to brides. Getting listed on Pernia’s, after all, is a mark of approval on a designer’s quality.

Last Friday, I finally made my way into his Shahpur Jat store to look at the clothes in person, and see if it lives up to the hype that has had a whole year to build up in my head.

Best Bridal Buys from Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2015

31 Aug

Best of lakme fashion week winter festive 2015 for brides

I know, I know. There’s been a lot of “Best Of” posts lately. Technically, they are the “Best Picks”, so what else do you want me to call them?! Ugh. #bloggerwoes

After Amazon India Couture Week and BMW India Bridal Fashion Week, there was one weekend us bloggers got a chance to breathe (because AICW and BIBFW were back to back!) This blogger of yours, though, did not breathe enough that Independence Day weekend. It was spent thoroughly enjoying late nights and hectic days…with friends. Followed by a trip to Mumbai for work (post coming up next!) which then led to…illness. Yes, I’ve been sick. For a whole week. And I’m still only starting to get better, it feels. I’m exhausted, cranky, sleepy, achy all the time. Maybe I was overworked. I don’t know. I don’t want to talk about it.

I kept an eye on Lakme Fashion Week Continue reading

Wedding Wardrobe: Anushka Hajela

19 Aug

Anushka was getting married. You know – Anushka! The blogger babe behind BombayBubble? Yes, the fashion blog. Her wedding had me excited even before she had shared a single image from her big day.

Why? Because, silly, when a fashion blogger gets married, music plays on cue and us wedding bloggers are the only ones who can hear it.

Anushka debuted a first peek into her March wedding recently on Instagram, and I almost unhinged my jaw at the sight of her wedding gown.

It was a breath-taking white wedding dress.

But how did a girl from Mumbai end up in a white wedding dress all the way over in the UK? And who made that stunning gown?

I got in touch with Anushka some time back, and she was incredibly generous in sharing every single detail from her wedding. Here is her Wedding Wardrobe story.
