Diya Mirza glows even when the lights are turned off, and to wear white with THAT glow seems just unfair. If you are lucky enough to have that glow, let it do all the talking. Minimalize the use of accessories by pairing up only kundan earrings or haathphool and some hot pink/forest green clutch.

This white embroidered kurta-sharara set is an ideal pick for any pre-wedding festivities. The heavy zari and zardozi work gives a subtle elegance and also making the cut for pre-wedding wear.
