#AUAW Blog 1 (4.10.2017)
As promised, we are here with the #AskUsAnythingWeddings Blog series and we hope you are as excited as we are. If you’re new to the family, here’s a short intro of what #AskUsAnythingWeddings are. Every Wednesday, we give you the opportunity to ask us your wedding-related queries on our Official Instagram handle and our blogger & wedding expert guide you with the best possible advice.
This was about the Wedding Wednesdays, jumping to the need to blog it up is. Because these videos are posted as stories on Instagram, they last only for a period of 24 hours and then disappear. We have built a close net community of people interested in #AskUsAnythingWeddings and many of our followers found it difficult to keep a tap of the stories. And so, borns the idea of coming up with the blog series.
Real Brides Ask...
#1 I’m not a fan of floral jewellery. Which jewellery for mehndi can I go for?
Asked by Nidhi Vij
If you don't want to go for the floral jewellery, you can opt for the gotta patti jewellery which is the latest in trend, and oxidised jewellery can be one of the options if you think you can carry it well.
#2 I’m wearing a simple peach lehenga. What type and colour of accessories should I go for?
Asked by Vishwa Patel
Pair up your simple peach lehenga with a layered necklace, to give a little depth to your look. Your necklace can also have rubies or emeralds in it, which will give the required oomph to your outfit.
#3 Suggest some Pre-Wedding shoot places in Delhi?
Asked by Silvi Anand
Because we have already done a blog related to this question, here’s the link to it:
#4 I’m wearing a red lehenga on my wedding. What should I wear on my sangeet and pheras in the morning?
Asked by Nayan Maru
For pheras you can wear a floor-length Anarkali in colours such as peach, powder blue or rose pink, preferably pastels colours, we think that would look beautiful according to the morning function. And, we would suggest you to adorn crop top with a long skirt or a gown as your sangeet outfit.
#5 What to keep in my Makeup bag to keep sweat away on D-day?
Asked by Khadija
The most important routine every bride should keep in mind before starting with their makeup for their wedding is—cleanse, moisturize and prime their face really well and to keep in the makeup bag during the day, the bride should have blotting papers with her. You can buy blotting papers from any medical store or here.
#6 Should my mehndi/sangeet/wedding outfits follow a theme or can they be different?
Asked by Eena
If you have an already decided theme for your sangeet or mehndi, So rather than having an entire look according to the theme, you can pick one element from the theme to be in sync with it. You need not try to inherit the entire theme in your look. For example: If you have a Mughal themed sangeet/mehndi, rather than going for an entire Mughal look you can have an element of it by wearing a passa as one of the accessories.
#7 Skin and hair treatments for a bride? My wedding is in a month.
One very important tip for the brides-to-be out there is, DO NOT experiment with anything new with their skin or hair one month prior to the wedding. Any of the treatments can turn to be a major disaster if it doesn't suit your skin or hair, and you do not want that to happen just right before your important day. The experiment game should start about 3 months prior to your wedding so that you have enough time to cover up if any blunders take place.
