What kind of look did Dia want for her wedding?
Dia has a very classic sensibility and we were sure that we wanted to go for a classic red look for the wedding. So, we chose a beautiful Benarasi saree from Raw Mango and Sanjay (Garg) customised a beautiful odhani with chand tara motifs for the pheras.
Is the look inspired by anyone?
I wouldn’t say that the look is inspired by anyone in particular. However, it’s inspired by a time where simple and elegant clothing let the beauty of the bride shine through; not the overly done-up elaborate outfits we see nowadays.
Tell us something about the outfit and what went behind putting it all together
We wanted to make sure that the outfit represented the classic Indian bride. Given the simplicity of the wedding itself, our focus was to keep it simple and elegant.
Anything particular that Dia wanted at the wedding?
Given the times we are living in, the wedding was everything she wanted. It happened at home with her closest friends and family. And she made for a beautiful radiant bride.
Dia and Vaibhav didn’t go for same-coloured outfits as is the trend these days…
Well, because we chose red for her, I felt all-white for him would be a nice contrast. Vaibhav is also a very simple person who wanted to keep things fuss-free. So, Raghuvendra Rathore made this custom outfit for him which we teamed with antique gold and emerald diamond buttons.
Have you met Vaibhav? What is he like?
Yes! Of course, I’ve met Vaibhav and he’s a wonderful person.
How did Dia and Vaibhav meet?
They would like to keep some things private.
