Real Wedding - Samidha Weds Anurag

A stylist. A fashionsita. A diva and a keen observer. When you are associated with so many images, expectations run high. Very high. And, so was the case with Samidha Sharma (of Street Style India ). If you want to get an idea of how popular she is in the world of fashion just have a look at her Facebook page here. When Samidha decided to tie the knot in year 2009, she knew that finding that perfect outfit for her big day would be a herculean task. Friends, family, and relatives - everyone was just waiting to see what Samidha would pick. And, after spending nearly a year (including 4 months in just trials) in looking for her wedding lehenga, she finally zeroed on designer Shamayel Khan (who has her boutique “AARA” in Juhu ).



When I first saw Samidha’s wedding pictures, honestly I was surprised. I have always associated Samidha with western fashion and was hoping that her lehenga would be more on the lines of fusion between Indian and Western. But don’t they say that style knows no boundaries. The classic mahroon (deep red) and green combination was done so tastefully and artistically in this masterpiece with gold gota patti work. The dupatta was of net with motiff work all over it and the border of the lehenga was in velvet to carry the heavy work. What I love most about the lehenga that it was tradional without being too gaudy or over the top. It had all the heavy work but no egg sized sequins or studs. It spoke of elegance and had elements of samdiha’s style oozing from everywhere.



Now, such an exquisite piece demands the same finesse in jewelry. The bridal look is all about putting each and every element together. If outfit speaks one language the jewelry can’t sing some other language. And, the antique gold jewelry (gifted by Samidha’s mom) was in perfect harmony with the classic lehenga. I love how Samdidha didn’t go over the top here too and didn’t wear 3-4 layers of gold sets with massive earrings. My favorite is the nose ring which kind of binds the jewelery and the whole look together.



In Samidha’s own words, “I wanted a very traditional lehenga very unlike my day to day taste. I thought I wanted to look traditional one day and that had to be my wedding”. And, she did how so beautifully. Here is wishing this beautiful couple a very happy married life ahead.
