We're forever grateful for all the brides who shoo away our midweek blues within a flash of seconds with their breathtaking bridal looks and offbeat ideas. Be it glimmering outfits, fresh & dewy makeup looks or donning the most scintillating baubles ever. And today we're awestruck on yet another bride who bowled us with her fresh & ravishing bridal looks.
Meet Shikha Khetwani, the latest bride who has us hooked for being a true depiction of a new-age bride who dares to be bold but also embraces traditionalism with utmost finesse. She wore a spectacular Sabyasachi lehenga for the wedding and styled a look that radiated simplicity, but her bold & glamorous Sangeet look made us wonder if she is the same bride! Yep, that's how distinctive her fashion choices were. She even nailed a pre-wedding ceremony with the most experimental hairstyle we have recently seen. So, without making you wait any further, here's presenting you the exceptionally inspirational bridal looks of the real bride, Shikha Khetani. Start taking notes, already!
Giving a miss to the quintessential deeper bridal hues, Shikha embraced ivory and pink organza Sabyasachi lehenga for her day wedding. The ivory-base lehenga with floral embroideries spread across the expanse and a heavy border is a pick from Sabyasachi's latest Spring-Summer 2019 collection. The glorious lehenga came with a pink-coloured richly-embroidered blouse that added a subtle contrast to the bridal look. While the lehenga is quite a millennial choice, Shikha infused traditionalism with her jewellery and styling game. She adorned herself with a sparkling polki set with a statement maangtikka and a classic nath. The double dupattas with identical borders further amped it all. But wait, the oh-so-stunning hairstyle curated by Ritika Hairstylist deserves a special mention. Shikha's bridal bun witnessed a unique spectrum of shades and blooms which was far from the usual. A red bindi rounded off Sikha's aesthetical and simplistic bridal look.
We have been rooting for plunging necklines for quite a while now but hardly ever we came across real brides who actually wore one. So when we stumbled upon Shikha's bold Sangeet look, our jaws undeniably dropped. Setting the temperature soaring high, Shikha bedazzled in a black Manish Malhotra crop top and skirt set. While the duo-toned skirt boasted of net and lace detailing, the dramatic black blouse was what stole the thunder. A deep plunging neckline, a svelte belted hem and statement bishop sleeves united to give life to this lust-worthy millennial blouse. Full marks to the bride for slaying in this bold number with the right kinda styling! Loose yet neatly open wavy hair and a soft dewy makeup rounded off her look. And oh, the dazzling diamond necklace with a ruby dropping was the perfect piece to pair with the plunging blouse.
The diva bride also slipped into a printed Sabyasachi kaftaan dress cinched with a waist belt for one of her pre-wedding ceremonies. And once again, ace hairstylist Ritika Kadam created a braid that's gonna roar for a long time now. Ritika tied the bride's hair into a pony braid, but with a twist, she weaved the braid with a delicate pearl string! Such a fresh and experimental bridal hairstyle that screams perfect for pre-wedding ceremonies.
