As requested by you all, I am back with a post on my wedding saree. While I was thinking about it, I thought why not make it a wedding album. Don’t worry, I won’t bore you gushing about every detail. I will just stick to the outfit and jewellery aspect of it. Here we go.
Please ignore the dead pale look on my face. I was just one month out of hospital after a small surgery. I decided to wear something very light for haldi due to two reasons, 1. I was still very weak and 2. My family has a tendency not to leave any single exposed part of the bride’s body devoid of haldi. So, I chose this contemporary tusser silk saree in yellow, with some red and blue.
I am wearing a chanderi dupatta called as “Shela” in Marathi. It is a very specific dupatta manufactured by the Chanderi weavers of MP. I searched for it high and low, but was told that they have stopped manufacturing it due to no demand. Finally, I got it ordered from Chanderi. I am wearing traditional Marathi neck piece called “putala.” Its sort of like laxmi haar as seen in temple jewellery, but different in a sense that the gold coins are woven into black thread overlapped with gold reshim thread. The nose ring or “nath” that I am wearing is again a very old piece that was passed down by my mother. Its a very traditional Marathi jewellery piece.
I did my own makeup for haldi as I knew it was a waste of money to hire a professional. I would have been covered in haldi by the end of the evening!
Saree from : Ranjana boutique, Baner road. Pune
Jewellery : Family hirelooms.
I had to attend my Sangeet ceremony immediately after haldi. So, I kept my makeup minimum. Just tinted moisturiser, blush and smokey eyes. The saree I wore for the event was a super light Khaddi georgette Banarasi saree my father chose for me. I accessorised with simple emerald and pearl chaandbali and maangtika.
Saree : from Kasath saree shop. Karve road Pune. (They will gauge your knowledge of sarees before they start showing you their more unique and rare pieces. Otherwise, they just roll out regular pieces).
Jewellery : Hyderabad.
Shoes : INC5
Make up : Nars Orgasm blush, MAC tinted moisturiser, NARS eyeshadow in black with Hashmi Kajal. On lips – MAC Fanfare lipstick.
As mentioned in my previous post, I wore a carrot colour Uppada saree for my wedding, something that my Baba chose for me. I am blessed with a family whose men have an excellent taste in handlooms and textiles.
I specially made the dull gold tissue dupatta from net tissue Banarasi fabric. It is lined with tissue pipping and golden ribbon.
Again, traditional Marathi jewellery piece called “Thushi.” It was made in Kolhapur, which has the only remaining artists who can make these dying designs. The second neck piece is a Laxmi haar from south India. It falls into Temple jewellery format. It is made out of coins embedded with goddess laxmi images. The haar was a gift from my husband. The green bangles I am wearing is the traditional Marathi “chudaa.” Each bangle is handmade. It is always brought from Kolhapur after being blessed by goddess Mahalaxmi of Kolhapur.
The jhumkas I am wearing, are a rip off of a Tanishq design. Tanishq have huge making charges. So, I got it done from my family jewellers in Pune at a better rate than Tanishq. The kamarband is pure silver which my mother got polished in gold to match my saree. It is heavy, again an antique find from our jewellers along with the huge Payals (not visible). I finished off with my favourite nose ring!
I love mogra and jasmine, so I did the traditional bun and loaded it with mogra gajras. Tip: if you have a established family jeweller, ask them to keep an eye out for desperate sales. Mine always calls us if he comes across any such piece that cannot be replicated.
Hope you enjoy this post. Loads of love.
