    This is one of Celina best looks in a long time. She looks really nice! I always dress up for wedding because otherwise when do we get to wear such clothes. I love it

    OMG CELINA… WOW that is such a new transformation!! LOVE IT!!

    Good question.
    I used to dress up excessively but later realised we spend so much on weddings. Especially when we only wear the outfit and accessories once in most cases.
    Now I mix and match & stopped buying expensive outfits because Aunty ji is judging me.

    Celina is the better-dressed here.

    I dress to my own tunes for weddings?. Mostly I wear Assamese Mekhela Sador to weddings because I have loads of them and hardly get to wear the gorgeous ones otherwise. I try to change up the blouses.

      Correction- that question mark is a typo btw. My bad. I definitely got your question.

    Celina is looking so soo classy..I always dress up bt try to keep my clothes bling free..my thumb rule while shopping for Indian wear n dressing up for wedding is- dark n bright colours, keep dm bling free n focus on fabric like silk n brocade. I like bit of bling only on light/pastel hues!

    Hahaha… wrong question payal, on a fashion blog! Ofcourse most answers you get will be from girls who love clothes and dressing up. On a personal note tho, i finding dressing up quite a chore but do dress up just enough so as not to stick out of the crowd.

    How gorgeous and elegant Celina looks!!! Absolutely classy and perfect look. It’s nice and refreshing to see her. Bored of seeing the regular faces on this blog.

    Hi ! You guys are doing a great job. I am addicted to your blog. About the question I always wear what I am comfortable in n carry that look which I want to whether it is dressed up or down.

    Long anarkalis with subtle bling and minimum accessories and minimalistic make up for me in weddings.only for immediate family weddings i take the effort to wear a silk traditional saree with small earrings and a stylish watch.

  10. Ali at | | Reply

    Celina, of course!

    I keep it low key at weddings, particularly when it’s not mine. :-)

    Celina all the way. She looks really beautiful and the pastel color looks soo good. She appears on these pages after a long hiatus after literally smashes it of the park! Love<3

    I don’t like any of the looks. Maybe like Celina’s look a wee bit more! Just don’t like R&HN’s designs.

    To answer your question – I prefer wearing bright colours with less bling but make sure to accessorise well. I actually am quite petite so if I wear say chaand balis with some bangles, it brings that bling factor to my overall look. I mean, on a leaner frame, less always looks more (You get what I mean here?). Further, I’m not very big on makeup as I have been very simple and tomboyish all my life. Infact I had braces and got them off a year back so I never really felt like “dressing up” or applying makeup till then. Now that I’m free from the clutches of braces, I like to spruce up a bit. However, with regards to makeup, I have never applied foundation or concealer or those white powders on my skin.. I don’t think I ever will as I like to keep my skin dewy & clean via sufficient water intake and exfoliation by sticking to traditional home remedies (I’m NOT a cosmetics person). So yeah, my wedding look essentially is:

    Bright colours with minimal bling + Accessories (especially jhumkis & bangles/large ring/hand harness and my watch) + Eyeliner + Kajal + understated Lipgloss + Hair down or pinning them up nicely (I have got super straight hair). Sometimes, I apply that dull golden eye-powder under the arch of my eyebrows to give my eyes an instant lift but that is only when I am going for a wedding look, else not.

    I know I went too much in the specifics. :)

      Correction: Find Celina’s look is only wee bit worthy**

    I just love to dress up! I only get to wear those ornate clothes and jewellery when there’s a wedding, so why not? I am huge on bling! so nothing simple for me!! :D

    Celina looks lovely :)
    Great question! I don’t have Facebook anymore so don’t feel pressure to always wear different outfits. Indian clothes are way too expensive…or maybe that’s just my taste?
    I prefer classic, elegant pieces and mixing it up with understated pieces of jewelry.

    Celina looks lovely.
    I mostly wear pastels to weddings, cos even if the dress in itself is really blinged out or if you are forced to wear heavy jewelry (via mom), it wouldn’t look ott or would it upstage the bride.

    I am crushing on Rimple and Harpreet Narula these days! Brilliant collection.

    Celina is all way with the gorgeous color and perfect styling on her. I find Shilpa’s look way too same, coz of hair or its like always same style,not so much impressed. Celina’s fresh style should be seen more on this page. :p bored of same old faces again n again in same style.
    To answer your question, i just started my venture in as designer, so my take on dressing up on some close relatives wedding is leather crop top choli with brocade satin skirt lehenga with phulkari duppatta ,wearing it with gold tone layered chain necklace on choli ;),dont forget to carry a statement potli with gota n phulkari work for magical twist. And if im attending a frds wedding i want to bring girly image,brocade coli with front zipper and tulle lehenga with net duppatta go for floral accessories ,earrings and hath phul may be, put some flowery bobby pins in ur hair to create the awesome twist, i carry quirky small bags like one i have is vanity box miniature to add drama ;).

    Wow how stunning is celina looking here , the clothes makeup, jewellery, everything. Shilpa just looks tired by comparison.
    As for wedding dressing, I always prefer the saree as living in the uk you don’t get many opportunities to wear one so you may as well go for it when you get the chance! Love bright colours more than pastels. Jewellery is a must, something kundan or antique gold, and I love an elegant clutch bag and heels to accessorise.

    I love to dress up for weddings! I never go overboard or anything. I have my own unique style so I do stick out ( in a good way :) ) I do get comments on not wearing jewelry though but it doesn’t bother me! Plus living in US you don’t get many opportunities to dress up so I try to make most out it!

    Love Celina’s styling.

    I like to wear Kanjivarams/traditional silk sarees. Bollywood inspired sarees are a big a no no for me. They all look the same. I like to keep things minimal and let the color/fabric do the talking.

    Nowadays, I mostly wear my mother’s sarees that she no longer wears. Keeping the cost factor aside, the designs are not so common (there are hand-me-downs from my naani also) and I somehow feel very proud and happy wearing them. And they need to see the light of day sometimes! That is marching to my own tune I guess. :-)

    1. BlueBells at | | Reply

      Beautiful! You won’t believe but I too went through some of my mom’s exquisite silk sarees which she no longer wears and I was like I wanna wear them and she was like “just get a nice chic blouse stitched to go with it”. So yea even I decided that very soon, even I will don some of my mom’s sarees for some weddings. :)

    There is lot going on in Celina’s look but still the filtered pic of hers (the last one) looks great. Shilpa should have worn a simple necklace little lower on her chest and not a choker. I feel anarkalis don’t suit many peeps, and I never liked them except on tall women. Weddings, I always wear a Lehenga (pastel colors) or a Silk Pavda Dhavni ( bright colors-red, blue or purple, green but with a small zari or just color block). Never worn a sari. :P

    Celina looks lovely here. Just apt for a wedding do.
    Well for me I totally march on my own tunes. I have a big time social life and im super fond of designer wear. But I prefer keeping it according to the occasion. So i just eye a designer whose outfit i wanna pick next for the particular occasion and just wear that. Don’t care who ever is wearing what ever. My focus is just my outfit-makeup n hair. But yeah i do admire and make it a point to compliment if I like anyone’s outfit!

    Celina looks gorgeous! Shilpa’s ashy skin I just can’t get past. Also why is she such a slave to diamonds? She wears them irrespective of whether they go with the clothes or not. Such a fashion victim!

    I thoroughly dislike trends which include anarkalis, shararas, kurta-cum-tents, blingy Manish Malhotra-esque sarees etc. I go for the safe, classic look and err on the side of caution. This means, no whites or blacks at weddings and not overshadowing the bride.
    That being said, Celina looks great here despite wearing an anarkali!
