#LBBPicks: 5 Stunning Outfits For The Bride's Best Friend

Sneha posted on 10 September

Shortcut

Being one of the bridesmaids at your BFF's wedding is an honour in itself. The tricky part is styling perfect looks that effortlessly blend in with all festivities. At Aarah by Aarti Ahuja Mahtani, the problem is solved in a jiffy. The four-year-old label is nestled at Gera Legend on North Main Road, KP and features a collection that's quirky, fun and created for the modern-age woman. Aarti, as a designer is impressively versatile. The collection is not limited to any particular season instead there is a burst of everything - pastels, vibrant hues, rich fabrics, delicate hand-embroidery, home decor and exquisite accessories. 

We asked Aarti to curate five looks for a bridesmaid for five different occasions - Haldi, mehendi and sangeet, cocktail party, wedding and reception. And, here are the wonders she created. Have a look. 

Haldi

Haldi is usually a morning event. So, think something light, and something clean that complements a sunny day. Arti picks out a gorgeous lemon yellow lehenga with intricate ruffle detailing on the sleeves and neck. The kardana hand-embroidery on the top is luxurious and flawless; the floral patterns give it a fresh feel. The skirt, on the other hand, is breezy enough for you to easily dance in. Pair the lehenga with this pastel pink velvety clutch studded with elegant stones, and you're good to go.

Sangeet & Mehendi

Aarti recommends a brilliant gold-and-wine lehenga with ruffled dupatta for sangeet and mehendi. The key-hole back choli is made out of gold-textured raw silk with pretty zardosi, kundan, sequin and nakshi detailing; very luxurious yet not over-the-top. The bottom is made of silky soft organza and features random frills all over for a pleasant wavy effect. Complement the outfit with kundan drop earrings and you are on your way to look phenomenal.

Cocktail Parties

Coctail parties are one of those occasions where you can bring out the sexy in you. Aarti suggests a striking saree-gown in jade black. The gown fits like a glove and does absolute justice to curves. The outfit has a flattering silhouette made of crepeand displays 3D flowers and rectangular embellishments, hand-embroidered to perfection. Go for minimal accessories, Aarti in fact, recommends to go for this flattering black-and-gold statement ring with the outfit.

Wedding

This is the winning outfit by Aarti for the big D-day. A marvelous anarkali in pastel pink, paired up with a pre-draped georgette dupatta and handmade tassel belt. The piece is a classic - minimalist with wonderful embroidery in glass petals, zardosi, kardana and 3D flowers. Pair this with a gold embellished batua and enjoy your BFF's wedding to the core.

Reception

For reception, Aarti recommends a midnight blue georgette gown featuring electric blue 3D flowers and a sheer back with potli buttons on it. Accessorize it with this diamond and silver bracelet for a sophisticated finish.
