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

30 Sep

I’M IN LOVE!

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.

More details on the exact silhouettes, colours, fabrics and embroidery used in this collection can be found at the end of the post.

I hope you’re inspired to create your own fairytale trousseau after seeing this!

PS. These cost a pretty penny, but lusting over couture is an addiction we can’t seem to shake off 🙂
