"I personally feel that brides must simply follow their heart. It’s best to wear something that compliments your personality. When it comes to accessorizing and jewellery, the less is more concept is key. Wearing one statement piece that complements the outfit works wonders for the look. Looking gorgeous on your wedding day does not mean you have to add on to who you are. Keep jewellery and makeup within your comfort zone and avoid wearing garments that weigh down your persona," says Anita.
Here are some of the ace designers personal faves and expert tips on how to style them.
