One of my oldest friends got married last week and it was nothing short of overwhelming. To anticipate its arrival is one thing but to have it actually unfold before your eyes is a whole new ballgame. It really is unfortunate how very little I get the chance to wear Indian outfits as I seldom attend these events - social anxiety issues and all that. 

I wanted to pick an outfit ideal for a summer wedding; something different from the usual excessive gold and heavy stone work. This nautical hued Couture Mantra lehenga fit the bill perfectly. Accompanied by a floral clutch by Love to Bag, hand embroidered with zardozi and badla, minimal make up and jewellery, the look moves seamlessly from daytime wedding functions right through to the evening reception.
