One of my cousins got married recently and I uploaded a pic of it in my personal Facebook account. Many of my friends wanted to see the full outfit pic and other details. So thought of writing a post about it 🙂
We Tamilians don’t have wedding ceremonies for continuous 3-7 days like how it happens in other culture. Maximum it can be a 2-3 days function with betrothal or reception a day before the wedding and then the wedding. As per convenience a few does betrothal few days or months before the wedding and reception after a week or so from the wedding.
We don’t have separate mehendi functions as such. We called a mehendi walla to our home and he put mehindi on all our hands 🙂
We generally prefer to wear silk saree for the wedding. The saree I am wearing is from Kanchipuram a famous place for silk saree. My aunt bought it for me when they went for wedding saree purchase 🙂
The hoop chandbalis and the ring are from a local exhibition and the threaded bangles are from a local shop.
Lehengas are recent trends in Tamil weddings as in people used to wear it in different forms but lehengas for reception is a recent trend. I wanted to wear a anarkali salwar suit only but when I went for shopping, this lehenga got my attention and when the attendant said it is only for Inr 3500/- (semi stitched) who am I kidding. They did stitching in the same shop itself with inbuilt zips and ropes for Inr 1500/- which I would say pretty cheap compared to other designer shops. Btw, I bought it from Kay, Forum Vijaya Mall, Vadapalani.
I thought of going for bare neck as the design of the neck is grand. But a big no from mom. Yes whatever it may be, you cannot skip bindi, neck chain and bangles 😛
The hairdo was done at Green trends salon.
The photos are not that great… It always happen in any wedding especially when you are gonna be the bridesmaid. I was running around here and there throughout the wedding and could click only at the end of the day with a not so good background 🙁 That is why so much blurring the background.
Nevertheless, I hope you guys liked my outfits and if you have any tips or suggestions to share, please leave a comment below 🙂
