It’s D-day for Bipasha Basu and Karan Singh Grover as they tie the knot on Saturday, but before that lets look at how beautiful she looked on her mehendi !!

711202

Bipasha Basu and Karan Singh Grover’s mehendi function was held at Villa 69 in Mumbai on April 29.

711203

For her mehendi, Bipasha picked a pink lehenga with floral printed underlay and matching box purse(which is looked so classy). She accessorized with phooloon ka gehna, comprising a tiara, haath-phool and baju bandh. Karan wore a white kurta pyjama.

711204

Bipasha looked lovely with the henna decorated hands and a 1000 watt smile adding to her bridal glow. And the best part of it all is the monkeys on her hand depicting karan and herself!!

Lets hear Ashima’s wedding story …
HR by profession, I am blessed with kashmiri and punjabi genes  as my dad is from kashmir and mom is punjabi. Very fun loving, lively, emotional but practical girl. But, as far as my wedding was concerned  I wanted everything in the perfect way.

Better half – Yash is opposite to me very shy, reserve , non practical but still very loving punjabi munda.

Love story: We met through a website and had a official meeting with family members respectively . He fell in love with me at first sight and wanted to marry me at any cost. But my family took some time before taking any decision. Many confusions, problems cropped in during this period of time. He use to call me daily but I hardly received his calls. Two months passed by and his love finally won me over …i said YES … It was because of his love and his persistence that we are together today…

Starting from roka ceremony , engagement , wedding every thing was planned by me and him (in chandigarh only). Our families were not in favor of many functions but still we both did every thing what we want. In fact i had maintained a dairy for every small thing .

I strongly recommend the best part of my wedding that was Prerna Khullar (Make up Artist). She made me beautiful bride for my D day.

Only one thing I will suggest to the bride-to-be: just enjoy every bit of your wedding cause this is such a beautiful experience that only come once in a life, So leave every thing just cherish this.

Pre wedding shoot- we selected beautiful kasauli for this session. We stopped on the way and had natural shoot I choose my favorite peach color as its very eye soothing and natural. It was indeed the best day for me.

We started shooting in the highway  right in the middle of the road. I remember one aunty shouted at me “marna hai kya ..ghar nahi jana aaj”

(I like the way brides are opting for non traditional pre wedding shoots … picking their favorite locations and recreating their courtships scenes …)

(I am also a fan of the desi look for the pre wedding shoots … Bollywood ishytle …)

This was the real fun we had  as we were not finding any place to change the attire. Finally we went to some shop and requested him for store (for changing)

My top pick from ashima’s wedding …Her awareness that her eyes are her most beautiful feature ..and she has managed to highlight it beautifully 🙂

It has been 8 months and I m still not over my wedding…I am sure I don’t ever want to..!!

 10421991_875645665783782_2639881806889781855_n

It wasn’t a love at first sight, but we did notice each other..destiny got us together during our engineering graduation. Classmates for four years , now roommates forever.:)

After a six year long relationship we decided to walk the aisle and fortunately with complete support of both the families.I was born into an air force community and my husband comes from a Sindhi business family.

It was an elaborate three days high-drama affair.

My cocktail and engagement was planned at hotel Matthan , Bangalore (9th-May) and it was an over the moon kind of experience!..

10417557_877047552310260_3359511727130489131_n

After a heavy a night ,the next day Mehendi at our elite club, was a more relaxed and fun night.

10450607_877104785637870_1659993704922062819_n

For my big day we chose Gayathri Vihar , Palace grounds,(This being the most prestigious and spacious areana to conduct big gathering weddings in  Bangalore).Most of the arrangements starting from Doli to Mantap to flower decoration to stage  set up was given in the hands of management(gayathri vihar) and it turnrd out exactly as it was expected-Just incredible!!!!! (Hats off to their in house support team – they co ordinate very well with enthusiastic family members and marriage co coordinator)

My maximum shopping was done from Bangalore. For the engagement I selected a long Indo-Western outfit which I thought would be absolutely apt for the occasion.

I picked up an all red with the slight shade of orange Lehenga.I was always clear that I wanted to make a classic traditional bride. When in doubt stick to basics..and hence Red!!!!:)

For the Make-up I was recommended Lakme Absolute and truly appreciate their dedication and perfection. They did a brilliant job!!

Preparation for the D-day:- I know how demanding and pressurizing it could be to prepare for the biggest day of your life..Enough is not enough.! But calm down!! Leave everything in hands of destiny and just let your beautiful smile and oozing confidence work its magic..Make most of these moments!:)

PS:- If possible make your little bride- kit for those last moment surprises..It would be wise to carry a small bag with some essential handy things like Safety pins, wipes, hair pins, a bottle of water, ur lipstick for occasional touch ups and may be some compact powder( you tend to sweat a lot on stage).

 10500514_875644479117234_6840145813094914399_n

With this I come to my most memorable and closest to my heart moment(my husband had co ordinated with his old band mates and given an impromptu performance with a  medley of my favorite songs!)- This was a total surprise which totally swept me off the feet

Hahaaa…Still gives me chills..Still in the awe of it!! (you can see the video on youtube – true love)
