The ‘mehandi'(Henna) pattern on her hands was divine and she made one of the prettiest bride I’d ever seen!
The ornate ‘kundan’ embroidery on her bridal ‘lehenga’ (gown) is designed by her… I remember how she fussed over the oodles of doodles she drew in her little bridal notebook, to show to her designer for the embroidery pattern. Days before the wedding she rejected the entire ensemble! It didn’t have the embroidery pattern that she designed!
Finally it was re-embroidered, to her desired pattern and delivered hours before her ‘pheras’ (wedding ceremony)! Last minute delivery, Bollywood ishtyle!
Married Indian ‘aunties’, (wring my neck if you want to!) are supposed to sport a ‘bindi’ (dot) on their forehead. Jokes apart, I am a big fan of ‘bindi’, I love to wear matching ones especially if I am wearing a saree (or if I am traditionally dressed). Here is a patterned one, that I just did for the PSC! Image credit goes to my lil one!
I like to wear this patterned ‘bindi’ with this sari 🙂
I hope these photos do justice to Photography Challenge#8- Patterns… given the soup that I was in… I think I should be allowed a reprieve! Good or bad, the excitement to stay in this PSC made me pull off a post in such a short duration i.e after coming back home… an hour ago! I am off to visit other members of our group, do join me… I promise, you would love ’em all!
