Wedding Fashion Trends & Trousseau Shopping made SIMPLE with Styling experts Bridezilla & Co.!

No matter how much you love shopping, trousseau shopping and wedding fashion choices can be confusing like hell! Here’s some expert help with stylist and wedding shopper Divya of Bridezilla & Co.

A while back, we were flipping through our Instagram feed looking for Wedding Fashion ideas and outfit trends when the @Bridezilla & Co handle by Divya caught our eye.

We got talking and found out more about her expertise in wedding shopping and shoot styling for to-be brides and bridesmaids. Having been featured in publications like Femina and recently styled events like the MUD launch with celebs like Ranveer Singh, she seemed to be the right person to put together our concept Fashion shoot!

Look Here!

The Look… Naughty & Nice!

Naughty & Nice!

Loving what we saw, we started planning a concept shoot in Mumbai with 2 lucky Brides-to-be and their bridesmaids! Together with team Bridezilla & Co., we came up with two different looks that together make the new age ‘Naughty & Nice’ brides – one a bold statement ivory bride look and the other a very pastel ethereal fairytale romantic look.

Gold that Glitters!

Once the mood board was in place, we looked around for jewelry partners to add the right touch of oomph. And once again the stylish statement jewelry by  Manubhai Jewellers bowled us over! Then we roped in none other than aesthetic candid photographer Nitish Arora and zeroed in on the fabulous Jade Garden venue in Worli.

The Perfect Mix!

To doll up the outdoor and indoor spaces at Jade Garden, we spoke to our decor partner Jinal Patel of The Doli Diary and they knew just what we had in mind. With everything in place, we couldn’t leave the final touches to chance and got on board renowned bridal makeup artist Kinjal Joshi.

Doll Up!

Soon we launched a social media campaign inviting applications among to-be brides and their besties. From the hundreds of entries that poured in, we selected two gorgeous groups –

Bride To-Be Priyanka and her inseparable bunking-studying-shopping besties since college – Sejal and Manali.

Divya of Bridezilla & Co and our stylists wanted to try something hatke for the first look, so we zeroed in on this BOLD yet chic and sassy look with handpicked outfits from designer Ayesha Chinai.

Ayesha is a homegrown designer, and makes customized pieces as per clients tastes. Don’t we love the subtle ivory on ivory embroidery on this lehenga and crop top paired beautifully with a soft net dupatta for an angelic look!
