Here are some photos from the South Indian Wedding I attended recently. It was a Malyali wedding and I loved how sorted and short it was. Although the bride had to change her saree thrice within a span of 2 hours but it was not tiring and exhaustive for the people attending it. It was a close friend’s wedding and I enjoyed every bit of it. Here are my wedding and reception outfits.
This was my day outfit. I wanted to keep makeup and outfit quite understated. And I am glad I did. It was a very simple day wedding so everyone was quite subtly dressed except the heavy dose of gold going across the wedding hall. 😀 I tied my hair on the side.
Because of some crisis, I did bride’s makeup for both wedding and reception. I don’t want to blow my own trumpet but everyone, starting from the photographer till the mother-in-law of the bride, complimented me for the bride’s makeup. I was soooooo happy. 🙂
Suit, Earrings : Anita Dongre
Shoes, Bangles : Random
And this is my reception outfit. It is a cream and black anarkali. The material is gota, silk and chiffon. There are thread work flowers on suit. There is a net dupatta with silk border with golden black embroidery done.I paired it with a gorgeous haath phool by Eina Aluwalia and random jewelry I picked up fro different places. I did black smokey eyes for the evening with a soft milk-tea lips to go with it.
And this was Sanjeev’s reception outfit. 😀 He wore jacket, jeans and shirt for the wedding.
And this is both of us together. 🙂 It was a great reception. We danced so much. Loved meeting all my friends after ages. Don’t know when will I get to see them again. 🙁
Suit : Radhika & Rahul
Shoes, Earrings, ring : thrifted
Haath Phool : Eina Aluwalia

I must say the bride was very lucky that u did her makeup!!!!!!!!!
Wow luv both the outfits, but am a bit partial towards the black one! both the looks are put so well together!
Thank ila. :))
Ramya, thank you so much. 🙂 We have anita dongre’s store here. Bought it from there only. 🙂 I think I was super happy that I could do justice to her looks on her special day. It meant a lot to both of us. 🙂
I totally love both the outfits ,……absolutely stunning ,……Anarkali’s are soo classy,…..you look pretty chic Rati
Both the outfits are super gorgeous and you are looking awesome in both. I always associate ethnic wear with bling and riot of colors. But your outfits prove it wrong that it too can be understated. I will keep this in mind when I next shop for ethnic wear 🙂
And oh ya the makeup!! Wow…please mujhe sekha do…recently tried eyeshadow for a function and it did not come out that well 🙁 Can you please suggest one neutral color pallete for eyeshadows available in India 🙂
soujanya, thanks. 🙂 you can pretty much start with maybelline chai latte quad. It’s pretty good and not expensive. 🙂
Thank you supriya 🙂
Hey thanks your prompt reply but I am not able to find Chai Latte anywhere, its discontinued it seems 🙁
Oy hoy! Anarkali disco chali!

You look good in ethnic wear!! :* I love the pink suit and the jooties, and that last pic of you and Sanjeev is adorable 🙂 had fun? How did you like B’lore? Unfortunately it didn’t rain while you were here, it’s so hot :/ did you get time to go anywhere?
That random kid is adorable btw 🙂
Had fun, Banaglore though was a mixed ride but it was a very emotional trip overall. i’d write about it on faux pas today. We roamed around at mg road, church gate, brigade road and ub city. Oh st marks road too. We were putting up at royal orchid hotel in manipal centre (this one : http://www.royalorchidhotels.com/royal-orchid-central-Bangalore/overview.asp) . That needs a special mention too. :))
oh Rati u brought back lotsa memories.!When i was with jet airways i was stationed at banglaore for a while n i stayed there.!hands down its one of my fav hotels …stayed there 5 days a week for 2 yrs !dont know if the same ppl r stil around but the staff at tht hotel was awesome !
Did u go to the fifth floor lounge in dat hotel?u get the most beautiful view of the golf course and the airport runway !we were so horrible that we actually used to see flights land n then leave for airport for reporting for our flights teehee
the staff totally made the trip shwetha. They were fab!!! we went to the 10th floor. They dont have anything on 5th floor as yet! actually there are 3 royal orchids in bangalore. Dont know which one are you talking about. We stayed at the manipal centre one. 🙂
sorry dint read the manipal one …i used to stay at the one near leela palace
but overall i feel ppl in bangalore are a dignified and a sweet lot…i feel more at home in bangalore than in mumbai!
Awesome so you did explore all my fave places :))) you mean church street 😛 there’s a bookshop there called Blossoms, and one called magazines, where they have their own pet cats roaming around in the store, it’s adorable. St Marks has some of the best places – Egg Factory and the Hard Rock Cafe 😀 glad you enjoyed!!! Oh I saw this hotel once when I was researching but wasn’t sure of it, thanks!! 🙂
more traditionals id say!what a beautifull set up pictures and you look darn lovely in the pink one.i stared for like foreva!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!be blesseddd
thanks rauni . how are you doing. 🙂
This is my first comment on this blog and I just had to do it. Rati, you look just lovely in your outfits with everything right from the hair and make up upto the accessories and footwear complimenting each other so well. You have a real classy sense of style that I like and it shows in whatever you wear….western, Indian, casual…. anything!!! 🙂
hey Rati…can you pls pls pls tell me from where u bought the reception outfit..I am in love with it..also is it a ready to wear?you look stunning
You look lovely. Both of you 🙂
Thanks maria and NWG 🙂
superb choice and superb outfits… ur friend is so lucky… awesome pics…
how was the food (sadya)?? 🙂
thanks. food was awesome. I love south Indian food. 🙂
Loved ur outfits the pink one as well as the cream n black one also the earrings n the rest of the stuff . U looked super cool n elegant and nt gaudily dressed like some people do at weddings .Is the brand global desi from Anita Dongre?
no this is iinter-pret from anita dongre. You’d get it at her stores only….i think. Thanks 🙂 Global desi is i guess her casual indian wear range.
Amazingggggggggg pics Rati…
Loved your Reception outfit & earrings a lot….U & sanjeev ji looks so cute together 🙂 🙂
also share bride pics 🙂
amazing is the word, for all the pics….:)
thanks aarti and ritu 🙂
Aarti, I would not be sharing the bride pics. Sorry!
ohhhh…i got your point !!!!!
Hi Rati..u looked lovely in both the outfits…superrr!!! and yes sweet couple..God bless u both…
Both outfits are gorgeous, the pink is so pretty and the black so striking! Yes mallu weddings are over in a trice, and in fact if you’re originally from North Kerala like I am, you don’t have to do the saree change even.
Back on IMBB after a loooong break, great to see these pics. We (my family) has relocated to Bangalore so it’s been a crazy two weeks.
thank you anshu. :))
Shai, hope you like the city. 🙂 oh that would be even a smaller wedding and the taali is soo pretty. My friend wore one woven in a sunset yellow thread. 🙂
Thank you and good luck for your new location. 🙂
yeah it goes on the yellow thread for the first few days, then you move it to a gold chain.although I am a bad girl and seldom wear mine as it does clash with some of my other jewellery 🙂
Yes, Im hoping for better things from Bangalore…will miss Cochin though.
Loved it..!!! You carry western and Indian outfits with equal grace. Wonderful. And hey I just sent you an email.. but forgot to ask one question. Suggest me a good salon near CP, City Walk.. I need to get a trendy hair cut..
oh yeah! I’d just reply it here. The suit is around Rs 8,500-Rs 9,000. you may check out boutiques such as ogaan, the white and ole couture in hauz khas. Even check out shops in lajpat nagar. You’d get a HUGE variety. 🙂 Thanks. 🙂 and i get my haircut done at looks. I like it. 🙂 They are in select city mall saket. WOuld post your ask imbb anyway for options.
Thank youuuuu..!!! Would surely check out the ones you have mentioned..
You look so beautiful! The dresses are lovely. I love long suits 🙂
