Unita And Nikhil’s Wedding Outfits

“Being a bridal stylist myself, I was quite particular about the look I wanted. In fact, another reason that pushed me towards an intimate and small wedding was the outfits. With a traditional wedding, I’d have to wear multiple heavy outfits, none that could be easily repeated. It’s not my style to be over the top and spend extravagant amounts on clothes that can’t be worn again. I genuinely believe in sustainability and wanted to stand out without being loud. Thankfully I found a partner who believes the same. The Sabyasachi floral lehenga that I selected for my pheras was literally out of dream – being luxurious, yet understated. I designed my husband’s outfit, so that we were both in burgundy, while the families were styled in gold and ivory. I specifically chose these colours to go with the desert background. Everyone was styled in comfortable yet elegantly stylish outfits, which only added to the stress-free vibe.”
