Best of Vogue Wedding Show 2015

11 Aug Wedding Design Company - Table Decor with red roses- Vogue Wedding Show 2015

THE Vogue Wedding Show kicked off in Delhi this Friday, and if you’re wondering – was it really worth attending? – the answer’s a resounding yes. Of course, it’s a luxury wedding exhibition, so we expected nothing but the best-in-the business designers and jewellery makers at Taj Palace Hotel.

We spent a whole day at Vogue Wedding Show, and covered every inch of it. Not a single stone unturned. Here are the stalls we loved and our favourite pieces from the show!  Continue reading

Best of Wedding Asia 2015: With Photos!

19 Jul 4 string Polki necklace - Bridal jewellery - Sanzany - Best of Wedding Asia Delhi 2015

I have visited a handful of wedding exhibitions in the past, but had always missed out on Wedding Asia for some reason or the other. Not this year, though. Wedding Asia was scheduled into my planner weeks in advance, and I really wanted to go see if there was anything worth visiting for.

And just like all the other wedding exhibitions, Wedding Asia is another great one-stop shop for discovering wedding designers and jewellery makers from all over the country. Heading in at 11 am is always preferable, because most exhibitions start to get really crowded and cramped for space after 2 pm.

This time around, my team and I were not able to go through every single stall, but we still picked out the best of what we did see. These were some of the note-worthy vendors we did come across –

A Mumbai Bride Picks 11 Favourite Stalls | Best of Sutra exhibtion

14 Jul Betroot designer at Surta Wedding exhibition in Mumbai pink suit

Namrata is a December 2015 bride, who is tying the knot in Mumbai and having 2 receptions – one in Kolkata and the other in Dehradun! She has a 2 States story – she is from Orissa, and her groom is from Uttarakhand. She lives in Mumbai, he lives in Delhi. Wedding planning is alien territory to her, what with her mainly having spent her life inside the IIT Bombay campus where 90% weddings take place in the campus guest house. From negotiating with wedding vendors to attending exhibitions and exploring lehenga stores, she has taken up the task of planning her budget wedding all by herself and blogs about it at Frugal2Fab. In today’s post, she shares her notes on Sutra by Marriage Mantra, a wedding exhibition she visited yesterday in Mumbai.

11 Things You Need To Know About Ogaan’s Wedding Exhibition

15 Jan

#1 It’s called Weddings 2015 and starts TODAY, at Ogaan in Hauz Khas Village.

#2 You’ll get to see what’s in store for 2015 weddings in fashion – all curated for you and wrapped up in a neat bow, under one roof!

#3 You just might find a designer lehenga that fits your bigger-than-you-realise-budget (why are you spending over 1 lakh at Chandni Chowk and Frontier Raas for copies? Unless you’re looking for a Sabyasachi lehenga, of course…then stay there.)

#4 It’s guaranteed to be an ocean of pretty trousseau pieces, worthy of a bride. Some of my favourite designers are on display here.

#5 Nidhi Tholia is here, showcasing her collection of stunning pastels – THE colour this wedding season! Her lehengas leave a really big hole in the pocket, but they are STUNNING.

#6 Dolly J lehengas. ‘Nuff said.

#7 French Curve‘s delicate & pretty outfits are in town all the way from Bangalore city. They’ve been mentioned on the blog earlier here.

#8 Nikasha always has something bright enough and light enough for a Mehendi function.

#9 Sonal Kalra Ahuja is currently killing it with her floral pieces, yet another trend this season, which is ALSO my favourite trend of the year.

#10 Sonali Gupta designs for the off-beat bride’s trousseau.

#11 Needledust jootis! Every bride should own a pair.

Ogaan India

I usually just inform you about wedding related events on Facebook or the Events page here on the blog, but I (a) could not possibly pack so much information in a small Facebook post, and (b) did not want you to miss being notified about this! If you’re a Delhi bride, it’s a must-visit. A little birdie has told me the exhibition is expected to be on only for the next 2-3 days.

Are you going?

I went to Bridal Asia 2014. Here are my notes.

Notes on Bridal Asia 2014

“This is the best wedding exhibition that Delhi has to offer to brides. It’s the only one I showcase my work at.”

– overheard at Bridal Asia 2014

I visited on Monday, when the crowds had thinned and the displays had dwindled. At the entrance, I took out my cell phone and opened the Shopping Guide I’d written a few days earlier. With a guide in one hand, and a media badge in the other – I was ready to explore Bridal Asia and find the best of what it had to offer.

Did my favourite designers have outfits I would love this time around? Who had an entirely new collection? Which ones would disappoint? And which new names would I discover I loved today? Continue reading

Bride Guide to Trousseau Week Bangalore 2013

I just got back from Bangalore yesterday after an exciting 2-day trip to cover Trousseau Week!

Watching a fashion show live, and discovering new vendors at wedding exhibitions – are two of a wedding blogger’s favourite things. And that’s exactly what I indulged in over the last 2 days!

I went off to Bangalore on Thursday to cover Trousseau Week, which kick-started with a fashion show that very night. Designs by Kimaya, Chola and AS Motiwala were amongst the many on the ramp that night. But more on the show in a later post.

Right now, get ready for your very own personal tour of Trousseau Week!

Why? So you can make the most of your visit there Continue reading
