Channel a vivacious vibe for the ritual as you are caught between collating all the mehndi favours and other wedding frenzy! Gulabo Jaipur’s bright pastels with floral detailing and intricate thread-work reflects the essence of traditional chic while Sukriti & Aakriti ‘s revival of phulkari evokes a sense of pride in our hearts – both of which are apt for the merriment around the mehndi ceremony.

 As you save the best for the last, the evening of the reception demands a certain amount of extravagance, so no shying away! Instead, slip into those gorgeous jewel-toned lehengas, embellished blouses and elaborately embroidered saris and shararas to complement the grandeur of the night. Even better, pair your minimal looks with navratna ornate belts like Ridhi Mehra’s or strikingly magnificent dupattas by Sukriti & Aakriti!

So go big or go home for your best friend’s wedding festivities this wonderful winter season, as there is no time for it, such as now!
