Fondly nicknamed as a couturier of flowers, Varun Bahl's every piece is like a piece of "Art Noveau" that we would love to own. His signature style which features neoclassical floral motifs, moody pastels, intricately embroidered ensembles incorporated into modern silhouettes is what makes the designer's creations timeless. We for one are always left mesmerized by the breathtaking collection which is the perfect blend of vintage traditional yet modern. And very wearable, especially for Indian weddings which are a parade of ethnic fashion at its finest.
From the graceful floral sarees to resplendent Anarkalis and lehengas, take a look at these Varun Bahl's pieces that will see you through all wedding functions.
Didn't we say that pastels was his forte already? It's such a fresh wave of air (and break) from all the jewel tones that defined winter fashion and apt for a light-hearted engagement ceremony. Perfectly befitting the mood of an engagement party, we love these modern ruffle sarees in pastels which strike the perfect balance between traditional ensemble and more contemporary flowing silhouettes. If you, however, prefer a more demure yet striking look, you can never go wrong with his floral signature sarees.
The Mehndi function is a light affair buzzing with guests which is why we love these Varun Bahl's Indo-fusion outfits which matches the quirky theme of the event. They are dressy, youthful, and it keeps your hands free from the constant checking up on the dupatta (which is so crucial during the Mehndi ceremony) so that you can truly enjoy the fun and laughter-filled ceremony.
While we may not be able to guess the colour of the bride's phera outfit or her reception outfit, the colour of her haldi outfit is very predictable. If you're attending a haldi ceremony, we suggest you too match up with the bride and keep it playful and vibrant. Outfits in tones of mustard and mint green like these are very eye-catchy and won't fail to garner you all the compliments. We promise!
Sangeet And Cocktail
Sangeet and cocktail night are one of the most awaited pre-wedding functions. They are filled with glitz and glamour, peppy dance performances, and lots of excitement. This is why we absolutely love these pre-draped saree gowns and pre-stitched sarees for the sangeet ceremony. They are contemporary yet traditional, minimalistic yet extravagant and just look at the beautiful shades. It's hard not to love them, right? Since they are pre-draped it also lets you bust a move without having to worry about the pallu.
Didn't we tell you that the Indian wedding is a carnival of unforgettable moments (read an ethnic fashion parade) with never-ending functions? Pre-wedding puja or the mandap puja is an auspicious ceremony where friends and family come together to extend their blessings and good wishes for the special day. If you are confused as to what to wear, try these chanderi kurta sets which were designed for the tropical Indian climate. They also blend in seamlessly with the mellow mood of the puja ceremony.
Everyone knows that if you're attending a wedding ceremony it's best to steer away from the reds and pinks and not go OTT with an extremely heavy outfit. This is why we think Varun Bahl's designs are perfect for a wedding guest. They are minimal in a maximal sort of a way and these floral lehengas (signature VB) only go on to prove our theory. And can we ever have enough florals in your wardrobe? NEVER.
Ivory may not be the most conventional ceremonial colour but after seeing this piece, every fashion aficionado would be crazy to diss it. Featuring paisleys motifs with intricate zari embellishments, embroidered jacket lehengas and anarkalis by Varun Bahl are the perfect regal attire to match the grandeur of the big fat Indian wedding reception.
