Be the Perfect Summer Bride

It's the season of holidays in India, but not every woman is heading to a vacation destination, or a leisure resort. There are many who are gonna be summer brides, and therefore want to check-in at a place that's ready to take care of their special day's needs. So, if you are one of those who is gearing up for her wedding day, then this feature will delight you for sure...

Fashion designer Anuradha Prasad Dhawan, sweetly called as Anu PD, recently hosted a beautiful event, themed as #WeddingDiaries, at the plush Le Meridien, New Delhi. It was an event that focused on a Bride's fashion avatar, right from her Mehndi, Spa pampering, to the wedding, and the cocktails. Wondering if it was a real wedding? Of course not! It was a day-long shoot and experiential of the designer's newest Trousseau collection for the summer bride. While the hotel played role of the fabulous wedding venue, the media world, both from print and digital became part of this shoot by posing as bridesmaids and friends. And, that's when Allwhatshewants too did the collection preview, review, and some casual OOTDS of this new collection.. take a loolk!

The Room at Le Meridien, New Delhi
Le Meridien had made all the arrangements to welcome us for this theatrical afternoon. We checked-in the hotel and were soon handed the keys of our room, which was on the 9th floor. The room, had the first dress of the shoot, and we couldn't wait to try the resort wear line of AnuPD.

The dress fit well, and the sea green and blue, with a hint of bright pink simply set us in the wedding day celebrations. The concept was clear, bride and her friends have arrived to kick-start the DDay celebrations...

Moden Brides in Anu PD's Collection

This, post a little delay was followed by some pampering at the salon of the hotel, where each one of us was given a certain look for the wedding shoot. La Belle, the spacious salon at Le Meridien has a trained and experienced staff who knows how to work in a jiffy. So, soon we were ready for the ceremonies to be followed, one after the other...

And, if you are still wondering where are the brides? Well, here they are in the all new modern avatar. Anu seems to have played with some splendid colours for this collection, as we could see each one of them flaunting a colour palate that was innovative and unlike an Indian wedding colours!

Glimpse of The Wedding Ceremonies, From the Actual Wedding, to the Mehandi Occasion!
Brides in the Resort Wear Line...
 This wedding had all the styles of dresses one could imagine. From asymmetrical patterns, to the classic gowns, and saris, the designer spoilt us with choices. We opted for a sari for the cocktails, anarkali for the mehandi, and long kurta with some traditional embroidery for the wedding...

It was one fun-full evening, where each of us knew that the wedding is nothing but a shoot. What was interesting was the hotel made sure to arrange a nice spread of cuisine, both over the Mehndi luncheon, and wedding dinner. From healthy salads, some spicy north-Indian, to yum chocolate & Indian desserts, the food stood out during Wedding Diaries of Anu PD!

Well, since the wedding took long, we missed attending the spa session and the cocktails, where we were supposed to try and review designer's cocktail sari range. But then, guess what? Anu soon a fter a few days of this event, went a lovely media goodies... a beautiful chiffon sari with a halter-neck blouse!

Allwhatshewants will soon be bringing to you the OOTD of that sari, till then why don't you just check out the hotel for the next wedding in your family.. or may be yours too?
