Sometimes you don’t need to look very far to find inspiration. We’ve come across so many beautiful brides so close to home that we felt the need to share the joy in our new column on The Unreal Bride. In Favourite Brides, we will be showcasing some of our favourite bridal looks so you may draw inspiration and get ideas or simply drool over their gorgeous outfits! The first in our very long line up of brides to be featured is Chandigarhs very own Saanya Verma (nee Goyal). You may remember Saanya and Akshay from when we featured their invitation card here. At her mehendi ceremony Saanya kept it simple and wore a green and pink Manish Malhotra lehenga with natural make up and no accessories what so ever except flowers in her hair! We love, do you?
For one of the cocktail parties she wore a Manish Malhotra Lehenga Kameez with big polki earrings and bangles to match.
For the night of the wedding, Saanya chose a gold and red Tarun Tahiliani lehenga and wore gold jewellery to match.
At their London themed, larger than life cocktail party, Saanya went the red carpet way complete with an updo and diamonds to match her oyster coloured fairytale bride gown by Shantanu and Nikhil.

What we love most about Saanyas look through her wedding is that she kept the amount of jewellery she wore to the minimum and also experimented with different hairstyles. Which is your favourite look?
We can’t decide which one is ours!
