2021 was the year of celebrity weddings and god bless our souls for witnessing some of the most gorgeous brides of all time. From Katrina Kaif’s royal red lehenga to Patralekhaa’s traditional tulle saree, these stunning dulhans stole our hearts with their smile and charm. Apart from their exquisite looks, we also loved the fact that they added a personal touch to their bridal trousseau. While Kat paid homage to Vicky Kaushal’s Punjabi roots by adding handmade kiran to her veil, Patralekhaa got her wedding vow inscribed on hers.
There’s something extremely romantic and special about customising your wedding outfit and adding a personal touch to it. Real bride Nidhi Dokania, founder of the craft store, Favora, and an artist by passion, also believes in this beautiful gesture. She took the concept of personalisation to the next level by customising her bridal chadar. Nidhi added pieces of her heart to the entry chadar by decorating it with hand painted messages. Take a look:
While it’s one thing to get messages, vows and dohas inscribed to your bridal outfits, it’s a completely different thing to write them yourself. Nidhi, who has a flair for calligraphy, wrote her vows on her chadar with red fabric paint. While explaining her thought process behind the customisation, she wrote in the caption, “My Bridal Entry Chadar. I didn’t really want the floral chaddar, I wanted something that is special, close to my heart and personalised with little things that I would want to keep forever. And then came up with this idea.”
Not just that, her family wrote their best wishes for her as well.
Nidhi’s bridal chadar, filled with the declaration of her love and that of her family’s is truly special and eternal.
The one mistake that brides often make is not paying attention to their entry chadar. They usually go with the regular floral or mesh ones that are decorated with lights. While they undoubtedly look good, they can always get better if you twin them with your bridal lehenga. Nidhi did exactly that by purchasing a fabric that matched the hue of her D-day outfit. She and her mother decorated it with dazzling kiran and gota pattis, and ghungroos. The overall result looked absolutely stunning and we think it’s one of the most elegant bridal entries we have seen in a while.
Well, we suggest all brides-to-be bookmark this unique idea and make their bridal entry more special than ever.
