‘Dream Summer Wedding with Me & My Besties’ – A Bridesmaids Photoshoot by ZoWed!

Spring is the time for fresh blossoms, friendship, fun and dressing up in pretty pastels before the nasty Indian summers hit us… And when it comes as a Bridesmaids Photoshoot Giveaway by ZoWed & our partners, what more could you ask for!

Spring was upon us, so we thought – perfect time to set the tone for a dream spring summer wedding look for one lucky Bride and her two favorite bridesmaids!

Pretty Women!

Who doesn’t love dreaming about a best friend’s wedding! It’s as much about your gang of girls getting together and enjoying those special moments as it’s about getting ready together, strutting around and posing in gorgeous outfits & stunning jewelry that makes heads turn!

Let’s get you Ready!

So we thought,  why not grant this fashion fairytale to three lucky girls! We launched an online campaign to hunt for three besties – one lucky “Bride to be” and her two favorite bridesmaids. Very soon we had entries pouring in and shortlisted and met a few candidates.

Finally we selected the trio of bride-to-be Puja, and her besties and sisters Urvashi & Radhika – to be dolled up and captured in 2 dream looks!
