This time around I wanted to wear saree and did that for both the weddings we attended.
For the first wedding I got the opportunity again to wear some of the beautiful garments I had during my own wedding time. And they still fit Allhamdulillah, even the saree 😅 Hehe, did not expect that tbh. But Allhamdulillah, no adjustment needed which was good as there was no time for that after our arrival.
Outfit worn at the mosque where the Nikah was performed. Location of this picture was taken somewhere else. Lol. This was taken at the Mount Lavinia hotel (had to pick up my outfit at the dry cleaners for the nikah dinner 😅)
Speaking of is where I got to wear my mehendi outfit. Unfortunatly I did not take an outfit picture from this dinner. But I have one to share from the mehendi itself.
For the Nikah I carried the shawl in a simpler style over the shoulders. A bit more classic and not so bridal.
Excuse the location, this was post nikah fun at carnival ice cream.
For the waleema I got the chance to wear one of my virindu (post wedding dinner) outfits. A beautiful Saree gifted by my mother in law. For those that remember the virindu I wore it in a slightly different style. For this waleema I went a classic.
The last and final wedding outfit was also a saree. Not one I had worn before.
I just love how elegant a saree can make you look and feel. Not the most easiest thing to wear and a bit of a task to drape it and remove it. That could also be because I am a bit picky on the draping of a saree mind you 😅
But do try to have your washroom needs out of the way before you drape it on.
Either way I just love a good saree drape. Pure elegance wrapped in a long piece of material.
I did not realize until after we took the picture that my pants totally matches the bush behind me. Random.
These are some of my most comfy pants and I have had them for some time now. They are wide, yet look stylish..yet feel like PJs.. it’s the best from all worlds 😆
Ootd for yah. But Dubai heat ain’t the most comfyest weather to be taking outfit pictures.. thank you to my hubby for tolerating all this for me, always ready and with a smile to help me take outfit pictures or anything else I may want to capture💕

Weddings are always the perfect excuse for dressing up a little more than you would another function. And for me I finally had another opportunity to wear some of the beautiful kits I got during my wedding time.
For anyone with same/similar background as me know that as a bride you are blessed with some of the most stunning gifts from your husband and in laws. And your own family will also make sure you are set and stone from head to toe with anything a new bride could need. Allhamdulillah.
I grabbed this opportunity to get more wear out of them. Pulled my always ready niece to take some outfit pictures and have some good old picture fun.
For the waleema I wore this beautiful royal blue kit from India that my husband got for me 💙
Thank you to my amazing hubby and niece, ever ready for my picture madeness 💕
