Srishti and Shubham married in a beach-side Sri Lankan resort with only their close family and friends in attendance. Jetting off to such a scenic location with your near and dear ones is always a fun way to celebrate your wedding. In their 3-day wedding, the couple arranged for all their functions tactfully so as to give their guests and themselves time to relax and unwind while immersing in the magical celebrations of their union. The couple met during lockdown 1.0 and things went uphill quickly from there. “The details will remain a mystery as we are still so shocked ourselves as to how things worked out for us,” says Srishti.
Further talking about her wedding planning and trousseau shopping, here’s what the bride told us. “When it came to wedding shopping, it was simple for me, I knew that I didn’t want to waste money on an outfit which I am only going to wear once. I kept a budget of 2-2.5 and start looking at designers within that range. I found a Bombay-based designer that suited my budget without having to compromise on how I wanted the wedding outfit to look.”
Speaking of her wedding planning, Srishti says,” We went ahead with the same wedding planners (The Divine Event, Thailand) who had done my elder sister’s wedding. I had a few things in mind in terms of decor that I always envisioned for my wedding. It was an easy process for me to brainstorm my ideas with my wedding planners. They surely did the best they could do to make my fairytale dream come to reality.” “If you’re a bride-to-be, remember that there will be lots of ups and downs during wedding planning and it’s all part of the process. Take all the downs in your stride with a positive attitude and it will all work out for you,” she adds.
After a quaint welcome dinner and the bride’s mehendi application, the families organized a formal mehendi part for the guests besides the beach. Given the resort is located on a beach, the couple definitely made full use of the dreamy setting and held 3 of their main ceremonies here, except Sangeet. For the mehendi, Srishti wore a sharara set in ivory and lime green. Shararas have definitely gained a reputation for being the comfortable sartorial picks for mehendi that doesn’t compromise with the glam as well. Complementing his bride, groom Shubham wore a peach kurta pyjama set.
Fun, lively, and cheery, sangeet is one of the revelries meant to add full-on entertainment for the guests and the couple. With a geometric pattern stage set alongside drooping florals on the top, the families were seen having a good time at the same party. The bride & groom coordinated in shades of deep brown for the event. We loved Srishti’s lehenga for how simple yet appealing it looks and the glamorous styling with a tiara was just a cherry on the top of her perfect ensemble.
On the wedding morning, there was the haldi function where the couple and wedding guests all wore yellow. The bride’s yellow haldi dress with pink floral jewelry is a gorgeous combination to don on your own haldi celebration.
For their night wedding, the couple chose to set a mandap by the beach surrounded by palm trees. It only took a string of fairy lights and some florals to decorate the scenic setting. For the wedding, Srishti wore an all-red lehenga with diamond jewelry, while the groom looked all debonair in his ivory sherwani for the main day. Scroll to see the beautiful pictures.
